About Me


Pretty Little Things is a place where I can share anything that is currently inspiring me. 
When I was younger my dad always made fun of me saying I had champagne taste on a beer wallet (and he nailed it right on the head!)
With that being said I love high fashion and designer labels, but it doesn't always fit my lifestyle (or my budget) -- so I like to create outfits and looks that can combine the two.
I love food, cooking, entertaining and holidays -- so I'll often share recipes, entertaining ideas and anything festive.
I'll also share some personal snippets, stories and photos along the way : )


25 Things You Don't Know About Pretty Little Things


1. My real name is Stephanie. But I prefer Steph.
2. I am a Seinfeld addict, can quote almost every line in that show, 
and can not be beaten in Seinfeld trivia!
3. I drink green tea every morning because I like it.
And then found out the health benefits and liked drinking it even more.
4. I have dreams of one day owning a Vespa and zipping around town in it.
5. I'm currently finishing my 2nd Master's degree in School Counseling {this summer, YAY}
6. I am an English teacher.
7. My favorite flowers are peonies.
8. I wish I had naturally straight hair, but it is out of control curly!
9. I love the sound of acoustic guitars and hope to learn to play one day. 
My boyfriend is currently learning and this make me very happy : )
10. I collect cookbooks. And now will start really using them.
11. I love photography and once had one of my pieces displayed in a local art gallery when I was in high school. I would love to get back into it. 
12. I am scared of roller coasters, airplanes and the thought of going on a cruise ship.
13. I am trying to maintain a natural and healthy eating diet - however I have a weakness for junk food - Pizza Hut pizza in particular.
14. Gone With The Wind is one of my all time favorite movies.
15. I am really weird about expiration dates on food {especially dairy products} and any meat that is remotely raw. I just can't eat it.
16. My favorite sport is football and I LOVE the NY Giants.
17. I love going to Broadway shows, concerts and sporting events. To me, I'd rather pay money for the experience rather than using that money for a new purse.
18. But don't get me wrong, I love bags and shoes as much as the next girl.
And hope to own 1 pair of Christian Louboutin heels by 30. Perhaps a birthday gift to myself : )
19. I can't stand it when people use improper/bad grammar {see #6}
20. My signature scent is Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel.
21. I would choose eating veggies over fruit any day.
Right now I am trying to trick myself into craving fruit.
22. My favorite beverage is water - seriously. And that's pretty much all I drink all day.
23. Thinks one of the funniest new movies out is "Horrible Bosses."
If you haven't seen it, check it out! So funny.
24. I love Halloween and all things scary. 
Just rented Paranormal 3 this weekend and it was just as scary as I remembered it being in the theater - and watching it during the day!
25. I "pinned" and created inspiration boards the old school way loooong before Pinterest was invented. I would rip out magazine pictures and put them on bullet boards and notebooks.


Hope you all enjoyed getting to know me more ; )

  5. Steph,
    I love your blog and all 25 things about you. We actually have a couple of things in common. One that really sticks out is that, I also LOVE veggies and unfortunately not a big fruit fan. Pizza along with burgers are my Kryptonite...lol
    Love to be following back and can't wait for all the great inspirations.

  10. Hi! Just discovered your blog and I love it! I recently started a blog of my own and I was wondering how you put certain posts under certain labels ("Eat" "Entertain" etc.)? I'm interested in applying this to my own blog but I cannot figure out how to for the life of me! Thanks:)
