CHRISTINE KIRK: "YOU CAN ONLY HOPE TO GET A COMBINATION OF HAPPY WORK AND A HAPPY LIFE" -Audrey Hepburn
Rarely do company names truly reflect the actual person behind it. GS&E is introducing you to the exception. Christine Kirk, founder of Social Muse Communications, IS actually the it-girl social muse. Her company is the ultimate news-blaster, connector, brand developer and social media kingdom. Social Muse advises luxury travel, restaurant, technology and lifestyle brands in social media marketing, PR campaigns, online branding and beyond. She also happens to be beautiful, as well as hilarious (helloooo follow @LuxuryPRGal), and truly dedicated to her business and helping brands reach the next level. I am not sure when or if she goes to sleep. :)
Here we share an exclusive interview with the amazing CHRISTINE KIRK on her beauty thoughts:
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BRAND / COLOR OF LIPSTICK / LIP GLOSS?
I'm not really a lipstick girl but I'm obsessed with lip gloss. Chanel lip gloss is my all-time fave.
Their color palettes are always beautiful and classic and the lip gloss lasts forever. I die for their SoHo Winter collection. The new STAR lip gloss is shimmery and beautiful and adds the perfect amount of glamour to any holiday look. I also adore Chanel nail polish. It's $23 a pop but well worth it. For this winter season, I'm obsessed with their greige nail lacquer "Particuliere" or from the SoHo collection "Strong."
WHAT IS SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL THAT INSPIRES YOU?
I find compassion beautiful. In today's fast-paced, electronic world, any time I see someone being truly compassionate, it inspires me to be better and do better for those around me.
WHO DO YOU FIND TO BE BEAUTIFULLY INSPIRING?
My husband is a beautiful influence in my life. Not only is he my best friend, but since we work in similar industries (the internet), he is also my mentor in business. He is my pillar of support, my go-to person for a good laugh, and always has sound advice or a smart perspective to offer me. Most importantly, he tells me how beautiful I am and how much he loves me every day. What more does a girl need to keep on going?
WHAT IS AN EVERY DAY (OR EVERY NIGHT) RITUAL OF YOURS?
You can often find me tweeting at odd hours of the day and night. I adore my job so much, that reading tweets and responding to my followers is calming when I'm stressed out or can't sleep. I learn about news headlines for the day first thing in the morning, and share jokes and information with twitter friends, journalists, bloggers and prospective new clients via Twitter. Social media is part of my daily routine morning, noon and night -- and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Christine is super talented and someone who loves her business and it shows. She just happens to be beautiful on top of that! She is the queen of social media. We are doing a curtsey.
