A gratitude letter for my friend Chris Brown…


Thank you for being in my life. It is crazy that I met you when I was your Lyft driver back in 2014. We had an amazing conversation and came to find out we both worked in the digital space. I am so grateful I was your driver that day. I am beyond grateful for all you have been in my life since. Thank you for being so smart, fun, funny, generous, a hard worker and always so helpful. Had it not been for you, this blog would not be up.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being my friend and for always immersing yourself into my ideas. Thank you for helping me create this blog and this brand. Because of you Cool N Chic exists. Thank you for believing in it and for making sure it runs smoothly even to this day. My deepest gratitude for making this dream come true.

Who would have ever though that a Lyft ride would turn into an amazing friendship and work collaboration? Thank you for believing in me and for your energy. Thank you for being so good at what you do and for teaching me so much. Thank you for always making time to answer my questions, help me and just be a good friend. I have so much to thank you for. Thank you for being you.

I am beyond grateful our paths crossed and I am even more grateful we are friends to this day. We may be in different states but I have you in my heart. I am always wishing you success and you know I will always be here for you. 

With all my love and gratitude,



Simone Santos

I am Brazilian by birth, American by heart! I created Cool N Chic with the intent of spreading the message that we are all "cool" in our own and authentic ways. Cool N Chic was created to bring people of all backgrounds together through mindfulness, self-development, healthy living and the desire to be fearlessly authentic. Even though I created this blog, it is not mine. It is ours and I welcome you, your wisdom and your energy.
