Why “The Pursuit Diaries”?

We are all searching for or in pursuit of something. Because this blog fits into the pursuit of so many different things, it seemed like the perfect name. In this case, we are in pursuit of the best skin care, the best pampering experience, the best healthy meals, the best way to travel to obtain all these experiences, and of course – the best way to do it in style. All of these experiences contribute to the goal of finding yourself, enjoying life, caring and loving yourself, connecting with the world, living a positive life, and feeling confident in how you look.  This blog is about embracing who you are and to share a positive message. Hopefully we can help you in your pursuit to a more fulfilled life! 

 

About Chantal

I am a free spirited, independent, and loving woman. I love connecting with nature and with my inner self. I believe that one needs to project positive energy and be a ray of light in the world so that in turn you receive that back since you attract what you give (law of attraction baby!). Love a good laugh and know exactly who I am and what I want in life, so I don’t concern myself with anything that doesn’t match or complement that.

Hobbies
I really enjoy spending time with my daughter. I also like outdoor activities like going for a nice hike and just take in the beauty around me. My favorite place is anywhere with a beach as I enjoy the smell of the salty ocean and the sound of the waves. I also love watching movies, binge watching shows, cheesy Christmas movies, reading books, cuddling, and getting pampered.

Background
I was born in Miami but have moved all over the place. I lived most of my childhood in Mexico City and moved back to Florida when I was 17 years old. I have lived in several places within Florida, then moved up north to Pittsburgh, PA to attend the University of Pittsburgh. Now I live in Texas and I guess we’ll see where life takes me next.

Career
I am currently the Sales and Marketing Manager at an employee benefits company. I’ve been there for over 5 years now and in the health insurance Industry for over eight years. I absolutely love my job, the company I work for and the people I get to see every day. This project is very exciting to me because it is one something I have been wanting to do for years, just connect with people and share tips and experiences; create an online community focused on positive things and supporting one another. I can’t wait to see where this goes.

Personal Life
Not much to say here. I am happily single for now. I truly believe that in order to be happy with someone else you need to be happy and comfortable on your own. I am open to relationships but certain of what I want and won’t settle with anything less. I know what I have to offer and expect the same. I have a daughter and she is everything to me so whenever I do find the right person it has to be someone that can love and respect my family as his own.

 

About Kim


I’m a laid back, reserved person that opens up once I get to know people! I hate routine and am always looking for things in life to make daily life exciting. I think one of the most important things in life is to open yourself up to opportunities and get to know how other people live in other cultures and walks of life.

Hobbies
Anything fashion-related is my favorite hobby! I’ve been lucky enough to be able to cover New York Fashion Week, Miami Swim Week, and local celebrity fashion shows in Dallas. Looking good is feeling good in my opinion! And I love writing and practically live on social media. 

Background
I grew up in Arlington, TX before going to college at University of Arkansas (Woo Pig). After studying psychology/economics, I moved back to Dallas for a bit, lived in DC for a couple of years, and now I’m back in Dallas.

Career
I currently work as a full-time digital marketing coordinator and part-time as a blogger/marketing consultant. I work a lot with extreme sporting companies and love to learn about a range of industries.

Personal Life
I’ve been married for almost 4 years now to a wonderful husband, and we have a dog, Thor, and cat, Agent Nibbles. I also have my immediate family all in the area – and we’re Cuban, so we love to get together as much as possible!
