Hi, I’m Alina!
Welcome to Alina Blogs! I am a wife, mother of two, entrepreneur, visual artist, tea enthusiast, and follower of Christ. My goal is to motivate women to find meaning in all aspects of their lives. Like many of you, I wear many hats each day, so expect to find a range of topics here – from motherhood, DIY projects, and food, to marriage, entrepreneurship, and more!
Back in 2012, I started my first blog without a clear direction or plan. My only objective was to write and encourage women, hoping that someone would read my thoughts. However, my blogging journey was intermittent, and I stopped after a few years due to college demands.
In 2018, I felt a strong urge to create a platform that could inspire women once again, but I was too scared to begin writing. During this time, I experienced a crisis after college graduation. I decided to abandon my field of study, got married, landed a job I detested, entered motherhood, and lost touch with myself – all at the same time.
After three years of hesitation, Alina Blogs was finally born. Join me as we continue to discover our purpose, embrace our true selves, and juggle the numerous roles we women play. Please feel free to leave comments, follow me on social media, or send me a message. I’m thrilled you’re here, girl!
Amazing things happen when you discover the beauty to “just be”. To be yourself in the moment, to be yourself in in every area of your life, to just be who God crafted you to be.”

I was born in Dominican Republic & was raised in Florida (Spanish is my first language- Saludos chicas!).
I am married to the love of my life, Isaiah, who is a super talented musician, producer, and artist. We have the coolest and funniest 4 year-old I know: Zion & just had the sweetest baby girl: Shiloh (newborn).
I studied Fashion Design in college, but realized that I loved other design-related things way more. I run a Design Studio, run a Painting/Art Print business, am an Associate Pastor at my church, and do a bunch of other freelance projects.
I lived in Chicago for 7 years, but now live in Madison, WI (Yes, I miss Chicago. Don’t remind me).
I don’t drink coffee, but am a tea lover through and through.
