About Reina Regina

Merry meet! I'm Reina. I'm a writer, editor, professional tarot reader, and Instagram creator. My brand is all about words, stories, and magic.

✏️

W O R D S I grew up in love with reading, and by extension, writing. I was entranced by how the right combination of words could move a person to do something new: change a worldview, visit a location, buy a product. I've spent my whole life dedicated to finding the right words to affect change for the people I write for. ✍🏻 My words read like a friend who gives practical advice, like that one teacher who makes every class feel like a discovery, like a real person having a conversation with you.

πŸ“™

S T O R I E S There was a brief period of my life in which I thought my destiny lay in nursing and healthcare. I don't regret the detour, because my years working in the hospital gave me the honour of holding space for people's unique stories and experiences. πŸ‘©πŸ»β€βš•οΈ Bearing witness to real stories of both suffering and joy led me to have a solid ethical background, a holistic view of humans, and an organised approach to both creative and magical work.

🌻

M A G I C I've always believed in magicβ€”in the power of exerting your will on the world and creating order out of chaos, elevating the ordinary into something special. I attribute part of this to growing up and working in a military environment. While books provided me with windows to wondrous new worlds (and while I'm way too individualistic to wear a uniform! πŸ˜…), it was my structured upbringing that instilled in me the determination to see results and the disciplined work ethic necessary to manifest a vision from dreams into reality.

I've found that my diverse background has given me a unique perspective and set of skills. I'm happy to put my experiences and expertise with words, stories, and magic at your service! 😊
