Hi there, my name is Czerina and welcome to my lifestyle and fashion blog, Pretty & Petite!



I am your typical 25-year-old Midwestern suburban girl with a love for all things fun, adventurous and beautiful.  I feel like there is so much that I want to experience and I cannot wait to go on more adventures.


When I am not spending time with my friends or family, you can find me working at the hospital. I am a pediatric nurse that works on a medical-surgical floor with children! I love working with those tiny humans because they are so funny and resilient despite whatever brings them to the hospital.  I am also currently in graduate school, part-time, to become a family nurse practitioner.

My niche is affordable and budget friendly fasion, beauty and lifestyle.  I’m 5″1 so I specialize in petite fashion. One might describe my fashion sense  as classic, comfortable, and feminine.  I love all things fashion, beauty and experiencing new things.



Some of my favorite things to do include binge watching Netflix, watching the Bachelor, eating food, taking naps, and shopping.


I come from a really big Filipino family and I love all the chaos and crazy love that comes along with it. As for my friends, I love meeting new people but I still have my ride-or-die peeps that keep me sane and grounded.

This is Dakota at 4 months old

I recently added a furry little dependent into my life. Dakota is a 1-year-old Australian shepherd and getting her was seriously one of the best decisions I ever made. She has the sweetest demeanor and is a hard-core cuddlebug.


I am super excited to get to share bits and pieces of my life with all of you. Be sure to follow me on all my social media pages if you want to see more cute dog photos (because let’s be real, she’s way cuter than me)!
