HI, I’M STEPHANIE.

Hi guys, welcome to my blog, my name is Stephanie (aka heystephheyyy aka tarjaymaxx). I’m 25 years old living in Chicago.

I started this blog a few years ago as a fitness blog. Post extreme-case-of-writer’s-block, re-watching Sex and The City, starting a Target/TJ Maxx Instagram, and a few years later, I am back. So, hi.

I found that I have multiple interests and passions outside of fitness that I realized I can’t just dedicate my blog to one topic. I love to write, and slowly feel like post college graduation I’m losing grasp of the differences between “there,” “their,” and “they’re” so maybe writing in a blog will fulfill my weird need to write a 20 page paper and will exercise the ol left side of the brain. I love to be creative, I love to design. I love fitness, love discussing health both physical and mental. I love shopping, primarily for 8,000 black leggings that all look the same and 900 adidas hoodies. I love home decor, and apartment shopping. I love makeup and skincare. I love to go out, I love to try new restaurants, travel and see new places. I love to stay in, be lazy for days, watch movies and quote every possible episode of The Office. I love to rant and talk shit. Needless to say, I like a lot of things that I can’t just cater to one audience lol. I stopped writing in my blog because I felt like if I wasn’t writing about only “fitness” I wouldn’t have an audience.

Fast forward to now, I want to start writing again! I want to use this blog as a place to gather my thoughts and write about everyday events that happen along the way. My goal for this blog is to share my experiences being a 25-year-old living in Chi City with more words than an Instagram caption holds.
