Hi there! I am Christina Drake and I am the author of Cooking in High Heels with Christina and Aphrodisia (Aphrodisiac Cooking). Thank you for visiting my blog. I would love to share a little about myself with you and I hope to get to know you as well as all comments and interaction on this blog is welcome.
I wear many hats but one of my most important roles is that of a social work. I enjoy working with youth and serving my community. My work includes homeless family assistance and youth development, as well as Aging Adult services. I graduated from Saint Leo University with a B.A degree is Sociology. I love my work and have gotten so much from the people that I have encountered.
I am the single mom of a cute little fur baby named Diego.He and I live in Georgia but I am originally from the east coast of Virginia which makes me a total sand and sun girl.
I began modeling at 13 years old. My mother did not think that I was graceful and she enrolled me in modeling classes and from there I was discovered by an agent. Modeling, although a lot of pressure, it has been so much fun! I have been on the cover of three magazines and the center fold for a national magazine.
I am a major girly girl and cosmetic junkie. I love trying new hair and skin care products and beautiful makeup pallets and lippies. I also LOVE to eat. I try very hard to have a good balance of little indulgences (I cannot seem to resist donuts and cupcakes) and clean eating. I enjoy cooking for other people almost as much as I love partner cooking. Whether in the kitchen with my significant preparing a romantic meal together or laughing and cackling with girlfriends making home made pizza, I just can’t get enough.
I see everyday as a new opportunity to learn, grow and challenge myself to be a great woman for myself, my community and my future as a wife and mother someday. I have a great role model in my life which is my grandmother that you may see me write about in the blog from time to time. She is my inspiration.
