I remember being a little child, sitting alone at my desk at midnight, just drawing or thinking about random things. I loved using my imagination – I had no rules or limits in my mind. I could be a princess, a president or a mermaid. “Who’s gonna stop me?” I thought.
Soon enough, reality hit me. One of the hardest things in life was to never listen to the people who tried to cut off my wings. Dreaming was always an escape. I believe every one of us is born unique in every way, but over the years we work so hard to become like everyone else and follow the same, traditional path. Don’t be afraid to be different – know that you don’t have to blindly follow what you’ve always been taught.
I’ve been thinking about creating a blog for a while now. Very few people knew about that, I was so scared to even mention it. It was real! Somehow I knew it – I found what I was looking for my entire life – a vision that makes me jump out of the bed in the morning, fight for my passions and hopefully.. inspire other people to become the best version of themselves. Right now I am tremendously proud to write my first article ever on MY BLOG…sounds crazy, doesn’t it? Honestly, I feel like Stephanize is a newborn that needs love and protection in order to grow beautifully.
This blog is my escape, my little universe full of positive energy where I can create and sprinkle all around all my love and kindness. Basically here I will share with you my outfits, beauty tips&tricks, my adventures around the world.. and so much more! So many surprises are on the way… just sayin’ !!
I am thrilled and humbled by the overwhelming support of my closest friends. My partner in crime – Tudor – my brother and my best friend forever, has the most important role. He is taking the pictures, the key element. We are both beginners so please be patient with us. With passion, practice and hard work anything is possible – we will grow and hopefully the quality of the content will improve with every article. The website looks better than I could ever imagine thanks to my awesome friend, Cristian Preda. He knew I’m only satisfied with the very best and I felt like I pissed him off thousands of times. Luckily he is still here for me and I trust his much needed help. Check out his work here.
For the first article I wanted something really special. I envisioned immediately my first time in..oh well.. Paris. I never stopped daydreaming about it since I left. There is something about this city, something mysterious, timeless, elegant.. Looking back at these pictures I see such a genuine smile on my face, a smile that I rarely see. Pure happiness. When I chose Paris to spend my 18th anniversary, I decided to do something that makes my soul happy – I was not wrong! Paris inspired me so much, I felt like this city can make all my dreams come true – and it really did!! The look I chose for my eighteenth birthday was photographed in Place Vendôme during Paris Fashion Week by the beautiful soul Fabiana Nunes. I cannot wait to meet her again! I saw my outfit on the Street Spy section along with bloggers and fashion influencers from around the world that I love. Needless to say.. I was simply honored and I kept smiling like a dumb person for the rest of the day. Just kidding. I still smile like that when I remember those moments.
Thank you a million times for for being here and for taking the time to read. I hope you will love Stephanize as much as I do! Enjoy the pictures!
