Hello! I'm Stephanie, a 25-year-old wanderlust, writer and mermaid at heart.

S☀S is where I blog about my life, my travels and healthy, beautiful food. Magical things happen when you're snacking on sunshine — let me show you!

When I was a little girl, M&D S☀S taught me that the first step towards reaching a goal was writing it down. This, combined with my love for lists, meant hours of picture collages and doodles of dreams and ambitions.
Starting this blog was a big step towards the future I hope to live someday, so it seemed fitting that I keep a page tucked away on S☀S for the rest of my “somedays” to live. I encourage you to do the same!



I want to work for a company with a product and a message that I believe in. I’d love to make a career out of making other people happier and healthier.

I also hope to turn this little blog into a book; a cookbook-meets-travel guide-meets-coming of age memoir about a girl and the people, places and cultures she falls in love with. I dream of beautiful pages filled with inspiring quotes, delicious treats, whimsical photo spreads and fairytale writing.

I *will* live by the water.
And I’m not particular, here. I’d be happy in Scotland by a moody loch, where every morning would start with a mug of tea, a knit sweater and a walk with the pup by the waves. Or I could settle for California ^~ morning runs on the beach, sunset walks and weekends spent playing in salt water… bliss!

 And more! Someday, I will:
