“When I first moved to New York, I bought VOGUE instead dinner. I felt like it fed me more.” 

– Carrie Bradshaw

I have a slight problem. I have about 5 issues sitting on my bed that I haven’t read yet. I can admit it, I’m a magazine head. I’m even considering interning for a small magazine over the summer. Last year, it was all about Seventeen, Elle, and Lucky. This year, I’ve subscribed to Vogue, W, Interview, and Elle (which is my absolute favorite.) Don’t get me started on my online subscriptions, that’s worse because it’s free. In all honesty, it’s not only about the fashion ads or the latest trends, the stories and editorials are amazing as well. I get major inspiration from magazines. They broaden my fashion sense, opens my eyes to new things and I learn a great deal about different cities and what they have to offer. Which is why I have a bucket list of cities and countries I must visit… x

So tonight’s the night, the greatest fashion party is here. Stores will remain open until 11pm and people are able to shop and support the fashion industry. Participating stores will have music, food, celebrity appearances, giveaways, new releases, etc. One of the greatest nights to be a New Yorker, I’m not sure what #FNO is like in other cities and countries but it can’t possibly compare to The Big Apple especially during New York Fashion Week. I have a great evening of events planned and will be enjoyed. See you at 6. My mission for the night is to meet one of my style inspirations Rachel Zoe. x

Throughout my life, my sense of creativity was strong. I was offered an art scholarship in elementary school, but I never pursued it. I was reminded to never let my talent go to waste. I dabbled in a bit of poetry, writing, sculpting, drawing, and I enjoyed them all. I loved to write as a kid and I once wanted to be a journalist when I grew up. Now that I’m twenty-one and I look back at my life, I will tell this to anyone, never give up on something you can be great at. If it’s something that makes you happy, follow your heart and chase after what you want. No one knows what’s best for you, but yourself. 

Parents may say “We’re your parents, we know what’s best.” Most parents don’t even know what their children’s interests are and sometimes they’re forced to grow up to be people they don’t want to be. God made everyone different for a reason and God gave everyone free will for a reason. Parents were created for constructive criticism, guidance and to sign permission slips, not to control their kids.

If I could describe myself in one word it would have to be a dreamer, whether it’s big or small, outrageous or reachable, I’m always dreaming. Not everyone will agree with what I like or feel that I’m not being realistic and practical, but I don’t care. I’m the girl that likes to go to an art museum during the week, take long walks through a park just to think, go shopping on a Sunday by herself and just be free to make her own decisions. My dreams get me through life. I’m Stephanie, and you are? x

Two years ago, I started my first blog and people fell in love with it. It was amazing to have supporters from all over the world. I thought to myself I should be doing more. So after a few months, I deleted it to work on something bigger. In the midst of brainstorming ideas for my new found project, I fell in lust with Tumblr and was caught up, reblogging my life away.

Once everyone and their best friend found out about Tumblr I was over it and left her. I started to focus on my project more and promised to never fall off the wagon again. Months later, I was approached by RSNY Mag to be their fashion blogger and I immediately agreed, I did a couple of posts and got caught up with life. Blogging was then put on hold. 

One day on Twitter, a friend posted her link to Tumblr and from there it was a wrap. I spent an hour going through her blog, it was amazing and reminded me of my old one. I decided to make another one dedicated to beautiful and bad women everywhere. Badd Behaviour is active but I still wasn’t satisfied.

Seeing that I didn’t have an outlet to truly express myself, I felt it was necessary for ‘She Casually Allure’ to be my online diary. I am here not to be judged, not to care about spelling & grammar errors but to be honest and express how I feel. Raw and uncut. It’s all about having a great time & living in the moment. 

This is my story. x
