Game Changer

If you have been spying on me (it's okay, no judging), you may have noticed that my blog name has changed. It was such a process, I wanted to stab my eyes out with a pen. But what in the flying heaven and earth is a Jean Rex?

Allow me to re-introduce myself:

“Jean Rex” -  the name of the darkest, reddest rose of all.  The name of the woman, alongside my mother, who raised me, dressed me up, fed me until I couldn’t breathe and taught me that I can rule the world if I wanted to- with the right pair of shoes. Her motivation scares me, but thrills me out of my comfort zone. The world she lived in was vibrant, bold, eccentric and surprising. But all so sweet, humbling, and uplifting. Just like my grandma. Just like a Jean Rex.

I’ve graduated from my blog TinaaMaria to give my journey a little more meaning: to continue learning, discovering and creating something just like how I used to when she was still around. From the clothes I wear, food that I eat, the places I go and the people I have the pleasure shaking hands with - all traces back to this beloved woman.

I introduce to you, Jean Rex.
