Miss A Columnist

Cristina Hosmer grew up in the heart of horse country in Middleburg, Virginia. She balances a career in modeling with a passion for horses, all while raising a 5 year old son. Competing as an amateur show jumper, as well as aspiring to become one of the top US women polo players, she still finds time to take care of the things that make her feel good about herself. Cristina believes that beauty is about letting other people know what type of person you are inside, by showing them that positive image of yourself on the outside. Taking the time to keep up with all the new skin care products out there, trying that new hairstyle, as well as finding that just so perfect outfit, all let the world know you care and they should too. Cristina writes about things that not only make you look beautiful but also the experiences that make you feel beautiful.
