Hello and welcome to my blog! I’m Charmaine Dulak, twenty-six years old, born and raised in Manila, Philippines. I am now residing in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, USA with my loving husband. I graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree with concentration in Graphic Design. I have a huge passion for art and loves anything that has to do with beauty and fashion!
Love, Charmaine is a whimsical, fun and chic lifestyle blog I created where I explore and share what I’m most passionate about – Lifestyle, Travel, Home Decor, Design, Beauty & Fashion. With that said, here you will find all kinds of beauty tutorials, Do It Yourself projects, outfit ideas, organization tips and so much more. All in hopes to help teach, inspire, and give confidence to girls from all over the world.
I’m also a video blogger on YouTube. My YouTube channel serves as my other creative outlet. ♥ Don’t forget to check it out and subscribe to keep up with all my new videos!

Why “Love, Charmaine”?
I always write about the things I love here on my blog and I feel like each blog post is a letter to either, myself or you, as a reader. My blog serves as my online journal and since I always sign off on letters or notes that I write to anybody with “Love, Charmaine,” I thought this was only appropriate and so fitting. :) ♥
What kind of camera do you use?
Sony Nex-5T with the 16-50mm lens, iPhone 6 and Samsung NX Mini with 9mm lens + 9-27mm lens.
What program do you use for editing videos?
I use Sony Vegas Movie Studio and sometimes, Adobe After Effects.
What do you use to create the graphics on your blog?
I use Adobe Photoshop and sometimes, Adobe Illustrator.
Any good tips on how to start a blog?
The biggest thing I can think of is to write what you’re passionate about. I really believe that content is key and things do take time. Practice makes perfect, so be patient and just have fun!
Can I use some photos/graphics I found on your site elsewhere online?
Not a problem! Just make sure you link it back. Though I highly suggest that you work to create your own original content for your blog.
