About & Contact

Salut! My name is Stephanie and I’m the voice behind Stephanie’s Looking Glass (or SLG as I like to call it). SLG is an outgrowth of my reflections and I hope you and I can be enriched by each other’s journey as we explore, dream and discover the things that matter to us.

Reignited in February 2023 to develop my passion for a curated style, mindful beauty, and a luxurious life, Stephanie’s Looking Glass (SLG) is a place where I share my interests in conscious consumerism, cultivating a mindful beauty palette and my love for homemaking and lifestyle design. As a diasporan, I know how important it is to navigate a new environment with strength and grace. You can expect to find musings on life, beauty products, home and interiors, recipes, and so much more. This is a space that serves as a beautiful escape from the hustle and bustle of life. Here at SLG, I want to encourage you to find beauty in the everyday.

The SLG Motto: Embracing Intentional Luxury

As I’ve gotten older, my views on the meaning of luxury has evolved. It has gone beyond the materialistic and financial to the experiential. I see luxury as an experience that can be distilled into everyday living. It is a condition that enables me to enjoy pleasing and satisfying experiences in varying amounts daily. Luxury is a choice. And that choice, is being intentional about embracing luxury in all its facets daily. This could be through the decisions I make and the experience that comes from it. In the things I choose to feed myself and the pleasure I derive from consuming them. Or the things I choose to invest my time and money in and the sense of ease and comfort that comes with the consumption. I choose to entertain the pleasurable, tailored, and experiential benefits that come with being intentional in my daily life. This for me, is all about embracing intentional luxury.
