The short story:
This is a blog by Steph Yap wherein she hopes to inspire people through her sartorial and sometimes personal tales, yearning to change the world through optimism. Yeah, that’s a big dream, but she believes anything can be accomplished, when it’s done step by Steph.
The long story:
About the Blog
I will go beyond the path laid ahead, but not before going around and making sure I’ve overturned every stone, always hoping to find Something. And I don’t know what it is I’m looking for, but I just know I’ll know it when I see it.
But I will promise you Stories. I think everything has a story, and that’s the art in it. So expect stories of architecture, fashion, film, photography, travel, written with the experience of a 20-year old dreamer who still thinks she can be whatever she wants to be, wanting to be everything to try to escape the inevitable becoming of nothing.
This is but a stone thrown into an ocean of beautiful thoughts. And all I hope for this blog is to create ripples before it sinks into the abyss.
So here goes nothing. Or maybe, everything.
And this is just the first step in a very long and hopefully colorful journey ahead.

About the Blogger
Steph completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from the University of Santo Tomas, but she doesn’t let that define her whole persona. She dabbles in graphic design, photography, film, writing, fashion, and many more, in the belief that all arts are intertwined through stories– yes, even something as technical as architecture.
She has always been a Manila girl, but is often mistaken for a foreigner due to her ethnicity, and sometimes due to her style. And she hopes that’s a compliment.
Steph absolutely loves puns. If you have some good ones, message her. She’ll try her best to make a punny comeback.
Inspired by Louis Litt, she aspires to see a day when she can use her catchphrase, “You just got Steph-ed on.” Or, “With Steph Yap, you can step up!” Either will do. Someday.
