August is around the corner!
We are hoping for the new month to bring with it loads of sunshine here in South Florida. But while we wait for bright, sunny days we would like to finish July off with a little light of our own with a Blogger Spotlight.

Blog Name: StephyDaily
Blog Type: Fashion & Lifestyle
Where are you from?
I’m originally from Barranquilla, Colombia but I have been living in the United States for about 7 years.
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging as a form of therapy. Yes! I was lost in many ways. I just had a bad breakup with my ex -boyfriend at that time, and I was feeling like I was missing something. But also I grew up doing modeling for many years, and I have been in love with trends and the fashion market since I was a little girl. So it was a mix of so many emotions that I wanted to share!
How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for about 2 years, I started this project and I’m so happy with the results, and all the support that the people have shown me.
How did you come up with the name of your blog?
Well, all of my good friends and family call me Stephy. I’ve named my blog Stephy Daily as a lifestyle blog by me.

2) How much time do you dedicate to your blog each week?

If you like dancing and have a good time you have to go to Morenos. It’s a Cuban restaurant bar and they have live music. Great for some drinks!
6) Are you usually on time or on “Miami time”?
Hahaha! I like to be on time, but things happen, you know? So, Miami time? Haha
7) Where do you see yourself in the next 2 years as a blogger? (Question from Nadia)
I love this! Haha! The funny thing is that I feel like I am a baby blogger still, so I want to learn more. I want to travel, work with brands, and I want to inspire people out there. I want to start a YouTube community and I want to share all that I know.

You know there are so many beautiful bloggers and so many histories to share. My best inspiration in this journey is my daughter. I’ve learned a lot with her by my side. You don’t have a manual of how to be a mom when you’re only 17.
9) What do you enjoy more? Makeup or fashion blogging? And why? (Question from Nadia)
Easy! I love fashion blogging. I’m very good at makeup, but my passion for patterns and textures always wins. ️
10) Share a small piece of advice for fellow bloggers.
Stay true to what sets your soul on fire. Just like be yourself. Enjoy the ride. There are not always going to be positive comments, but I always had the thought that you are the only one who puts limits in whatever you want to be or do. Be always kind to others. Life is a beautiful gift and the more you are grateful for it the more blessings you will see.
