About Me

Well hello there! I’m Stefani, and you are probably well aware that this is my blog. As to what that actually means though? Well, I’m still figuring that out myself, truth be told.

I’m a Texas-born, California-raised, Auburn-loving, resident of Charleston, South Carolina. As a graphic designer by day, I have an inherent love for aesthetics that I strive to incorporate into everything I do. (I have been known to spend far too much money on products solely because I can’t resist their packaging.)

Authentic Stereotypes began as a place where I could show you tidbits of my lifestyle and WAY too many Pinterest fails. It then evolved into a strict beauty blog, which I eventually burnt out on back in 2016.

But now, I’m back.

So welcome to the new Authentic Stereotypes! I’m hoping that the third time’s the charm for me when it comes to blogging. I’ll still cover the beauty basics and occasional Pinterest projects, but I’ll be going way more in-depth on a wide range of lifestyle topics. It’s going to be quite a wild ride, so hopefully, you’ll enjoy the adventure too ;).
