Welcome! I'm Christine the founder of Galas + Grace, strategist, host and consultant who is deeply passionate about helping conscious thought leaders in the personal development and wellness space spread their message.
My goal is to create thoughtful experiences and events that ignite and inspire people to practice self-care, elevate their wellbeing and create genuine connection in all areas of their lives while also getting a closer look at my conscious lifestyle approach.
What started as a soul-centered event planning business has now flourished into an overarching lifestyle brand to include my own events and other live experiences hile still providing strategy + planning services for wellness-focused conscious entrepreneurs.
The original principle holds true --bringing people together with the potential of igniting a conscious shift in thinking-- having the power to inspire and potentially change people’s behaviors, attitudes and outlook on life from just one experience.
Galas ~ initially referred to the planning of social events with an eye for elegance, I also see it as a way of living and embracing life on a daily basis with style, sophistication + beauty.
Grace ~ continues to stand for the belief of embodying divinity, purity, authenticity + spiritual transformation.
Galas + Grace was inspired by my own spiritual practice and journey of self-discovery. Allowing for more love, connection, presence and heart-centered interactions in my day to day life ignited an even deeper passion to share my experience with others. My hope is to open you up to create transformational moments + experiences in your life as well.
I invite you into my world of conscious living, wellness, beauty and live events coming from a place of deeper awareness. Let yourself surrender to and embrace more heartfelt connections + meaningful opportunities along the way.
Some fun facts.
Born and raised in NJ with strong ties to NYC's culture and lifestyle, I'm definitely a hybrid of the two. My all-time favorite movie is The Outsiders. My favorite comfort food is an Ecuadorian stew that I only eat maybe once a year. My go-to beauty tip is always keep your eyebrows well maintained (they set the tone for your whole face). I love my morning meditation practice, vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting and sprinkles (gluten-free of course), fall outings with my sister, Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathons, all things mystical (crystals, angel cards, astrology, numerology, energy healing, etc.), road trips listening to my Joe Mac playlist, music (pretty much all genres but especially 90's R&B/Hip Hop...it takes me back), and attending motivational events and workshops where I can continue to grow, learn and meet new people.
Thank you for visiting my little home on the internet.
Please reach out anytime. It would be really great to hear from you!
