Hello there loves! Here it is, my own blog with this name that I have spent so much time brainstorming and contemplating. I guess I should start off by introducing myself to you so you can get to know me a bit better. My name is Stephanie, hence why this is the Adventures of S, get it? heh. I’m going to give some fun facts about myself, who I am, what I’ve done and what fun stuff you can expect from me!
I used to blog many years ago, but with a whole different name and story. I used to do a lot of designing and created bracelets/jewelry. So for that I had my own website, blog, Instagram and Twitter pages. It was great and so much fun while I was finishing off fashion school. I went to FIDM here in Los Angeles, and creating jewelry was a fun hobby I enjoyed until after graduation when I went into working retail full-time. I graduated with my degree in Visual Communications, which is my favorite major ever! I learned such a huge variety of skills like graphic design, fashion styling, trend forecasting, window displays, visual merchandising and more! I feel like within those 2 years I literally learned 4 different majors and it was perfect when I went into retail and eventually became a manager of my own store! I LOVED having my own store, my own space where I got to customize and lead my own team. Visual Merchandising was one of my all time favorite things to do, it still is actually. I loved getting in the newest season collections and using style guides to design the floor with everything beautifully merchandised to perfection. Surely soon enough I started working full-time in retail, all day every day. Retail and my job took over my life and any free time I had. I became addicted to learning and growing as a person and a manager. When I did have a couple of hours after work, all I wanted to do was eat and go to bed. I was exhausted and drained after each day but I felt so good and productive because I knew the things I did that day benefited the store and team.
So, after taking some time off from all the craziness and closing down my old pages and blog I couldn’t stay away any longer! I have always had a HUGE passion for fashion and the industries’ impact. As a kid I was obsessed with clothes, jewelry, pretty much anything related to fashion. At 5 years old I’d be modifying and creating new clothes for my Barbie’s from extra fabrics and toilet paper. I’d be cutting and coloring their hair in all sorts of funky ways to create looks that I simply had in my mind. My parents told me they already knew by that age what a fashionista I’d grow to be, lol. Sure enough, fashion school was the only choice for me after high school and I had no doubt about it.
As I continue to grow and write this lovely blog of mine, you’ll get to know me and some of my passions better. I’m so excited for what’s to come and share it with you all! I created my Instagram page before I got the time to round-up my blog so please go ahead and check me out @adventures.of.s I post about my every day adventures whether it’s grabbing my favorite, a cup of coffee, shopping, my ootd, yummy food, and any other fun events that happen in my day-to-day life.
