Nastia Liukin

I was invited to go behind the scenes with Olympic Gold Medalist & Dancing With The Stars performer Nastia Liukin today! 

Spoiler alert! This is part of an upcoming #YourStorybyKristenBlush Instagram feature with the very talented makeup professional Timothy MacKay!

The experience was a lot of fun, and it was really exciting to meet such a talented athlete, such as Nastia. Stay tuned for more photos in this series beginning soon!

Thank You!

XOXO, Kristen

A Fire in the Sky - New York City

New Yorkers are no stranger to the random downpour of rain, sometimes only lasting five minutes. Yesterday we had what seemed like a Tropical Storm, and after....was this sky.

I noticed the pink sunset reflecting off of the buildings outside my window. So I grabbed my camera, ran outside and up the Highline stairs, and began capturing it's beauty.

Your Story by Kristen Blush - Red Hook Crit

When Entrepreneur David Trimble started the Red Hook Criterium in 2008, the race was held on the open street in Brooklyn. Now held at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, the race has grown into an international celebration of the world’s fittest Men and Women Cyclists. In addition to New York City, the Red Hook Crit is now performed in London, Barcelona, and Milano, annually.
