About me

Patsbeautytips, how it came about.

Unique, is a powerful word.

In a world that tries to tell us how to act, look and feel, what does it mean to be unique?

Welcome to my website!

My name is Patricia Kraenzel, born in Berlin Germany, and raised in Africa with deep roots in South Carolina. However, that is not what makes me feel unique. Experience, observation, learning to forgive and the love for sharing are what inspire me to feel unique.

While growing up I was surrounded by women who had a strong sense of fashion, style, and femininity. Their products were right in front of their door. From essential-oils, precious stones, silver, and gold. My parents would take us on long trips on the train through the Sahara desert. We would travel on steamboats on the Nile to visit the pyramids in Egypt and visit various museums in Cairo. These trips would end at the Mediterranean Sea, where we would rent a house by the sea and vacation for months at a time.

Along the way, we stopped at markets and little towns, where women would mix their fragrances using essential oils, and herbs. They would design their jewelry out of precious stones and wood. Sew their own clothes using simple yet beautiful, colorful fabrics. They would build furniture, paint, and craft while blasting music. My mother would buy teas, oils, and fabrics to sew our clothes and make accessories. It was always fascinating to watch her bargain.

Working in the customer service industry I realized that my exceptional combination of skills, experience, and interests is my true strength.

After many years of telling my story to my friends and family, I was inspired to bring PatSun into existence.

Patsbeautytips is about searching, finding and sharing

Living on a farm, overlooking the Blue Nile I would wake up every morning, walk to the main gate and watch the sunrise over the calm river. The rays of the sun, the ever-changing colors kissing the sky, the smell of fresh lemon, wood and the wildflowers in the air amazed me every day. I have always been fascinated by nature’s beauty I can’t wait to bring that feeling and style to you.

My Goal

Patsbeautytips is not only a website but a destination that will bring the feeling, scent, and memory of my journey to life.

It is a platform for makeup, fashion, hair, lifestyle, and accessories that inspires the modern woman of today. Searching for new makeup products, natural products, fashion and designs for your daily needs is my mission.

In this fast pacing world, we often disregard how nature unfolds and provides for us.

By using products that nature makes for us we create a pathway to that experience.

Feel free to ask questions, leave comments or concerns below and I will be more than happy to work with your individual needs.
