About Me

I know blogs are supposed to have a set theme and make sense. But this is going to be a site about  life and everything that I love. We all know that life and the things you love or the things that interest you aren’t always cohesive.  I also want to show people that there are healthy ways to release their creativity and that there are other things to enjoy in life instead of turning to drugs. So I am going to keep it real, and post anything and everything that pops into my senseless mind. May it be about:  fashion, music, movies, tips, recipes, books and so on. These things just so happen to be my “drug” of choice.  Hence the name “Life and its other drugs.” Hope you enjoy!

But more about me! hehe

I am 20 years young! Starting a new decade/chapter of my life. I will be starting college in January (had to take some time off) studying Mass Communications with a minor in Psychology. I’m quite interested in anything adventurous. I’m content with being myself & I don’t take myself seriously (I love to laugh at myself). Some other things that interest me are…


I’m pretty addicted to quotes. You can find a quote for every feeling you have ever had, and they resonate with people so well. Never doubt the power of words. Words have the power to stir someone to action. Words have the power to make you stop and think & they last a forever.


I also have a great love for Photography. Any form of art really, but photography holds a special piece of my heart. I took photography back in high school, & seeing your work develop and come to life in a pan is absolutely amazing. If I ever go missing, you would most likely find me in an art gallery or an art festival.

Classic Hollywood Films

Classic Legends

Now, I am absolutely addicted (and I mean ADDICTED!!) to Old Hollywood films. Silent films are also a favorite of mine. Stars like Audrey Hepburn, Katherine Hepburn, James Dean…oh my gosh Bette Davis!! They just don’t make’um like that anymore. My TV is stuck on the TCM channel. Some of my favorites are Childs Play with Audrey Hepburn, Dark Victory & All about Eve with Bette Davis…and so much more! But let me move on, because I could talk about this forever!


Okay…if you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m pretty much an old soul. I love music with a passion! Especially music by Billie Holliday, Elle Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet! I also love music from the 70’s and 80’s Fleetwood Mac, The Pretenders, Queen, Aerosmith! and music from today..Amy WineHouse, Adele, Foster the People, Lykke Li, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero! I could go on forever! But I wont hehe


If you could see my room…it would look like a library! I have books stacked on my dresser, on my nightstand, on my TV, packed away in bins in my closet, and lined up against my wall. They are EVERYWHERE! & can you believe that I actually need more?? well I do, I just can’t get enough of books. Classic books, chic lit, mystery…I read it all!

Well this was just a taste of some of the things that keep me occupied & there is a lot more, but if I go on then you would never have time to check out my blog 0_o

I really hope you all enjoy what I have to offer.

  1. Hey Steph,
    My name is Luigi and I came across your blog the other day. Its really and i enjoyed reading it alott. Its good to have someone who lives in the Orlando area and is not following a set theme when it comes to a blog. It gives a different perspective to things in the area which is refreshing:) My buddies and I noticed that you have a section called “Artist You Gotta Know”. We started a production company called Top This Ent based here in Orlando and our featured artist is Man-Aye. He is extremely creative and different, which is always a good thing. I wanted to know if you would be interested in cross promoting and if you could do an interview for him. We can do whatever you think is best bc it is your blog. Either way we will be promoting your site as well as the interview.People need to see this blog too bc I personally believe its well put together:) Please contact me directly at TopThisRecords@gmail.com and please let me know if your interested. If you would like to check out some of Man-Aye’s work please visit his youtube at Man-Aye.com. Hope to hear from you soon and have a blessed day:) Keep up the great work Steph!!!!:)

    Top This Ent.

  2. Was feeling dejected so I Googled “I’m in need of inspiration” and your blog came up, you had a post with that title. I started reading your blog and it seems you really enjoy life and I needed to witness someone doing that, seeing how I was dejected and all. After reading a few of your post I decided I should blog and created an account. I’m not really the sharing type so I figure I’ll use it when the mood strikes me, similar to the one that brought me to your blog. Blogging with that kind of imperative I’m pretty interested to see what my blog turns into! I hope something resembling a theme emerges. So, just letting you know that you inspired me in the moment I was looking for it. Check in on it some time. It’s bare now but it’ll be fleshed out by the end of the day. Oh, the blog is called “doorkicking”. It’s a wroking title. Later.

    • This is honestly the sweetest comment I have ever received & it came at the most perfect time. I have been feeling down as of late & your comment really lifted me up. I am so happy that I was able to inspire you & you in turn did the same for me!!
