Hello! I’m Kisty and I’m a 20-something creative free-spirit from Manila, Philippines.
KISTY, formerly known as The Style Mermaid, is a creative lifestyle and travel blog based in the Philippines. This blog was established in 2008 though I have been into blogging longer than that. Originally, I created a blog because I wanted to learn how to create beautiful graphics just like my other blogger friends at that time. As I grew older, my blog became an outlet and medium to share and, hopefully, inspire others through my writing and photographs.
Although I don’t aim for fame or earn millions from this, I never expected that this humble space on the Internet would one day take me to new places — literally! In 2013, I was chosen to become a Big Blog Exchange Ambassador where I get to travel to one of my favorite places in the world, the United Kingdom, for 10 straight days, all expense paid! It was definitely my most favorite rewarding experience from blogging.
Some of the few things you should know about is me that I collect lapel pins of countries I’ve been to and I always have room for a cup of vanilla ice cream. I’m also crazy with chocolates, as long it doesn’t have almonds in it. I also like to color my hair on a whim and cuddle with my boyfriend.
