Hi! My name is Steffy. I live in NY, and moved here from Miami in 2014. I was born here in NY, and always dreamt of returning!

By day I work as a community manager at letgo. I've also worked as a visual merchandiser. I spend my free-time hunting for vintage treasures, decorating my home and indulging in far too much ice cream.

Some background on the blog:
I moved back from living in Nicaragua in 2011, and decided after many months of reading blogs that I should start one! After a few months, I left my job to return to Fashion School, while selling clothing through my vintage shop the entire time. 

In 2012 I graduated with an AA in merchandising, and began to work as a Visual Merchandiser at J.Crew.

In November 2012 we adopted our weenie child, miss Claude. You can see her first blog appearance here.

In April 2014 I said goodbye to J.Crew after some great years to work in marketing/ social media. I worked at an agency for under a year, then in-house at an online company and then onto my current role at letgo!

Love story:

Matt and I met in 2009 in college - we were 21 years old, and babies! We spent the first portion of our relationship long distance as he finished up school and I lived in Brooklyn. We then moved to Nicaragua together in 2010 for 7 months before we moved to Miami for a few years. 

After 4 and a half years of dating, he popped the question on my birthday in 2013 (read about it here). We were married February 15, 2014 (find posts under the wedding thread here). 

This blog has introduced me to so many amazing people, and it has helped me sprout into the gal I am today! Thank you for that, and thank you for stopping by!
