Hi everyone! I’m so excited to finally introduce myself here and announce the start of my brand, It’s Gezellig 🎉
I’m Becca Stevens, a 20-something weirdo living in Boston, MA. (This picture is somehow from a year ago – my hair is much better now, although that necklace is M.I.A.😭 ).
Being a college student, it’s been hard finding a second to breathe, let alone write this post (which sometimes felt daunting–it’s scary to put yourself out there for others to judge!) But, “‘The time has come,’ the Walrus said, ‘to talk of many things: Of shoes – and ships – and sealing-wax…’” you get the point 😜 .
What is this girl’s deal, you ask? I’ll tell ya! I’m just getting my footing in the ~creative~ world. I never really thought of myself as a “creative” person before, because I thought that meant being a painter or a writer or a fashion designer –something to that effect. But more and more I’ve been able to realize there’s waaaaay more to it than that! I have always been obsessed with the way things look: from rearranging my bedroom as a kid (to my parents’ dismay, by myself and often) to experiementing with my own style of dressing
That’s why when I graduated high school with no idea what I wanted to do, I chose to go to the Fashion Institute of Technology for Marketing. At FIT I quickly found out the fashion industry (and Midtown Manhattan) weren’t exactly my cup of tea. Still not knowing what I should do, I transferred to Emerson which was much closer to home, clinging onto my marketing major for dear life as that was the only direction I had at that point. Fast forward to today, after a whole lot of self-reflection and talks with the most supportive and loving friends a girl could ask for – I finally have an idea of where I want to take my life.
The concept of “home” (which I’ll elaborate on in an upcoming post) is something very near and dear to my heart. Having a beautiful and safe space that’s all your own is so important, and I want to help the weirdos like me achieve that in their own homes.
So that’s it, this is just the start of the next chapter in my life! I’m so excited to find myself even more and do what I love – and I hope you all enjoy this work in progress as much as I do 😍 🙌🏼 (and I promise to keep all future blog posts quicker to read – but you can always follow my Instagram if you want the short & sweet of it. And check out my Etsy, which is also a work in progress.)
I can’t wait for you all to see the things I’ve been cooking up all summer 🔮 Stay tuned.
P.S. – Photo creds to my talented and beautiful friend Kelly, I wish I could take her wherever I go to make me look like a decent human being. Check her out for me📸
