A Piece of Stephanie's Story

· · Comments

Meet Stephanie! A 25-year-old from Hollywood Florida. She lives every day in hopes for adventure and making others laugh. Thanks for sharing your story with us, Stephanie. You are amazing!

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF! 
Currently cooking up a meal for my hubby and wondering what color I should paint the exterior of my house next. I'm a full-time sales and marketing coordinator and slowly but surely blossoming into a fashion and lifestyle blogger! My husband Alfredo and I tied the knot over a year ago but started our love story back in 2009 - We are both Cuban and inherited the Cuban culture from our parents as well as the same last name but I promise you, we are not related! How can I forget my dog, Juli. She's a 6-year-old Shitzu and the light of our home. We're making the best out of our youth and so far traveled to multiple places these last few years and continuing to do so. 

WHAT ARE YOUR FOUR TRAITS AND WHY? 
CREATIVE: The Pisces in me is fully equipped when it comes to creativity. I'm constantly imagining things and planning beforehand. I had such an amazing experience coordinating my own wedding, it was so much fun seeing my visions brought to life. The pinks, the golds, the sparkles! My husband is definitely a trooper for putting up with my ideas. 

ADVENTUROUSThis world has so many places to see and one is stuck doing the same routine over and over again! I like to break that system from time to time and wander off every chance I can get! 

FUNNY: My husband says I'm a box of surprises. Spontaneously funny and constantly cracking a joke about anything that comes to mind. I'm also that great friend who will console you over the phone while you're constipated in the bathroom. Sorry, Blair.

DREAMER: My imagination runs wild every time I think about my future. I picture it first, multiple times in my head of course, and then find ways to achieve it. 99.9% of all my aspirations have been accomplished. Even if it's something bizarre like riding a unicorn. I will DIY a cute unicorn horn find a local white horse off Craigslist and call it a day. This is where my humor kicks in. 

YOU ARE ADVENTUROUS, HOW DO YOU ATTEMPT TO ACHIEVE THIS IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE?
My husband and I try to eliminate expenses by replacing the items we want with the things we actually need. If you have a goal, whether it's to travel somewhere abroad or buying your first home, budget yourself. Set aside that money you were looking to spend on a pair of jeans. Doing that regularly will help you save money for that dream vacation you've always desired. It's not easy at first, but once you're closer to that goal it will only motivate you more to succeed.  

SO YOU ARE A DREAMER, WHAT IS YOUR ULTIMATE DREAM YOU HOPE TO SOMEDAY FULFILL?
If you fulfill everything you desire in life then what's next? I only wish to continue the path I am living today and aspire for the greater good in everything. 

WHAT'S ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU LIVE BY, OR HAVE GIVEN TO OTHERS?

To treat others the way you want to be treated. If people followed this concept, the world would be a much better place.
