Hi I'm Steph, a 22 year old born and bred country gal living in the depths of Cornwall (bet you weren't expecting that one, eh?) in the UK. Considering I've written about my life on the internet for the few past years, writing my first bio is proving pretty much impossible, so I'm going to do it in true Steph-form: sporadically.
I started my blog just over two years ago as a natural transition from spamming the internet on Tumblr. One day I woke up, put on a (potentially horrendous) outfit and asked my Mum to take a picture of me. The end result wasn't the best thing you'll ever see in your life, but hey, we've all gotta start somewhere. Now, over two years on and god knows how many #ootds later (I hate to think about how many photos there are of me on the internet) I've somehow managed to turn blogging into my full-time job, and - better yet - I'm lucky enough to be able to do it with the guy I love (he'll kill me for saying that). He takes the photos, I awkwardly prance around in front of the camera and put words onto a screen every so often. We're a great team.
I originally started my blog with the idea that I had to be some form of fabulous fashionista to succeed in what I wanted to do. I pretended I was someone I wasn't, set dreams that weren't even mine and - at one point - I even said goodbye to all my friends and family (and pets!) to go live 'the dream' in London and study at a top fashion University. Realisation soon hit, and within ten months I had moved back to my home town in Cornwall, where I began to slowly hustle my way right to the middle. Now? I've got four kids (and by that, I mean two cats and two lizards..), a lovely boyfriend, a bunch of friends, and my family all around me. I ain't going no where.
Cocochic started out as something that I thought would help me become the person that I wanted to be, but in recent months I've realised it's helped me accept the person that I was all along, flaws and all. There's absolutely nothing chic about me or my blog (so don't get any ideas!), but I keep the name as an ironic reminder about how far I've come. But oh, do I have a long way to go. So, why not come along for the ride?
