My name is Stephanie, an 18 year old blogger that started this all over a year ago. Born and raised on the east coast, living in New York. I'm currently a first year university student pursuing a degree in neuroscience, and I have an affinity for fashion, minimalism, photography, travel, and comfortable living. 13 FRIDAYS was launched in April of 2013 and is an online diary space of sorts which documents my personal style and the evolution of such, curations, inspiration/ideas, random thoughts and photography compilations. No matter the case, 13 FRIDAYS always strives to express such subject matter in an unbiased, unpretentious manner.
WHY 13 FRIDAYS?
1. It's the day I was born. 2. It's also an occurrence (Friday the 13th) which happens 1-2 times a year.
All photos are taken by me and me only with a Nikon d5100 using an 18-55mm lens, with or without a tripod, since (unfortunately) I haven't found a person that knows how to work a dslr and can take my outfit photos without asking me questions. Unless stated, all photos on this blog are mine.
Any post written here on 13 FRIDAYS highlighting a brand or a product review was written by me under zero influence of brands or commercial/monetary interests, all opinions are 100% my own. 13 FRIDAYS takes its readership and content very seriously, so in order to stay true to those values I will only accept collaborations that suit my personal taste and values. All gifted/sponsored/free items are always denoted with a c/o, or 'courtesy of'.
Recently, I have now made the conscious effort to shop more sustainably, selectively, and become more aware of how our clothing and products are made in an ethical fashion. Feel free to read more here and the reasons behind doing so.
Lastly, I strive to make my blog layout as clean and minimal as possible, so that it can remain efficient to use for many of my readers that take time out of their day to read my posts. Blogging in my free time is a huge commitment, which I'm more than happy to do because I greatly appreciate and look forward to the comments and feedback that you guys post. And for that, I thank you.
