My name is Kristina, sometimes known as Nina, and I came into this world twelve days before Christmas 1984. I was born into a military family in Masset, British Columbia. Obviously, we moved all over the country as I grew up. I have also lived in Kingston, Toronto, Ottawa, Belleville, all of which is in Ontario, and as well as Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and Victoria, British Columbia. And I’ve kept the habit of moving all over well into adulthood! Me and my royal cat, Sir Magnus Maximus are moving to the big city, Vancouver in a few months.


I absolutely love cats and dogs, junk food, binging Netflix, HALLOWE’EN, exploring nature (camping, hiking, kayaking, etc), and living life! To pay the bills, I’m a freelance graphic designer and I work with kids once in a while. I’ve been doing graphic design for 20+ years. The first ever program I used to design stuff was Microsoft Image Composer. OLD SCHOOL. Now I use Adobe Creative Cloud.

Colour Me Nina is my personal blog and I talk about everything, pretty much. I guess you could call it a lifestyle blog.

If I were a food, I’d be crepes. 
If I were a taste, I’d taste like bacon.
