Hi! My name is Steffy. I am a wife to Matt, doggy mom to Claude Pepper, and I live in Long Beach, NY. I grew up in NY until I was 8, and then spent a lot of my life in Miami, Florida. I just recently moved back to my hometown in NY, and I'm so excited about it!

By day I work as a social media strategist. I've also worked as a visual merchandiser. I absolutely love to thrift and I am a self proclaimed sweets addict . I am also a runner, and couldn't live without my daily/ weekly runs.

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.

Matt and I got engaged in 2013, and were married in February 2014. You can read about wedding planning on the blog here, and view pictures from our wedding here.  

In April 2014 I said goodbye to J.Crew after some great years to work in marketing/ social media. We are currently carving out our little world in NY, and we are enjoying every minute of it!

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!
