Finding words to introduce a personal, creative space is always leaves me trying to avoid introductory cliches and feeling a little lost for words. I created this blog just over a year ago but was never in the right frame of mind to keep it up. However, I’ve always loved the feeling of a new year and a fresh start so here we are again.
My name is Stephanie (Steph) and I am currently twenty years old. I was born and raised in England on the 6th of July 1996. When I was ten, I moved to Cape Town but after nine long years, I decided Europe was truly my home. So in 2016, I moved to my dream city, Paris, for university to study Film, while my lovely parents moved to Spain with my two beautiful basset hounds.
I find happiness in expressing myself through the mixing of writing, photography and videography to produce my own muddled world of expression. I hope for this blog to be my own creative outlet through my love for writing, photography and filming my life experiences, travels, people I meet, places I go to, any thoughts/life advice I have, short stories, short films, poems etc.
I love to spend my days writing in journals and watching films or reading and taking in all the beautiful visuals of everything around me, as well as peoples blogs and collecting inspiration from everywhere. Photographing everything is an everyday habit and something I cannot go a day without. I am fascinated by people and enjoy observing the slow rotation of the world as it spins around me. I find that late nights with pouring rain and early mornings with burning sunshine are the best times of the day, when avocado on toast is involved.
I am now passionate about positivity and the law of attraction. While going through hard times in my life, I have voyaged through dark tunnels and tiptoed on cracked mirrors but have began finding the light within and am starting to build a life I have always imagined but never felt capable of doing, starting with this outlet for my creativity. For a long time, my passions were obscured by a mist I thought wouldn’t diminish. But after a lot of time and effort, I managed to find freedom from despair and am now rediscovering my creativity, desires and excitement for life.
In the near future, I would love to just do something creative with film, writing and photography as my job. I’m still figuring it all out but it will all fall into place when the time is right. For now though, I’m just taking one day at a time, experiencing as much as i can, creating as many things as i can and trying to keep up with life itself, while not letting it slip through the non-existent wrinkles on my forehead.
