Top Ten Hits

I stole this idea from the lovely Sarah Starrenburg and using WordPress’ stats function found the top ten most viewed posts on my blog since 2008. Some of them are so random that I’m not sure how they made it to the top.. the first two have over 5,000 views on their own. Must be my tagging abilities.

1. All Things Fashion

“As I’ve previously mentioned, I love Chictopia. And I really love one of my ‘favourite chictopians’ Marielle. I noticed her on Chictopia, and then made my way onto her blog. She’s gorgeous and has gorgeous taste in clothes and shoes.”

2. Chronicles of Narnia

“C.S Lewis is amazing. I’m just reading through the Chronicles of Narnia now and I’m really loving it. I’m fairly positve I’ve read all of the stories before, but it’s been such a long time, and I’m really enjoying the re-read.”

3. I Will Exalt You

“I will exalt You, I will exalt You, I will exalt You, You are my God”

4. Friendship

“Friendship is possibly the great thing in the world. Lately I’ve been reminded just how lucky I am.”

5. Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

“Once upon a time a man and lady blinked and then had a baby called Steffany. She grew up and fast and with many bad habits. One of which – was an addiction and love for shoes (and bags, lollies, chocolate and music – but let’s talk about shoes for now)”

6. Favourite

“This is a list of the things that are currently “my favourite” right now.

Favourite Drink: Tea

Favourite Fruit: Oranges”

7. The Last Single Girl

“Recently my friends, namely my best friends, have all gotten boyfriends. And while I’m very happy for them and their insane bliss, it can leave one feeling a little.. well.. unhappy with her current status. I actually enjoy being single, so to remind myself of the fact, I wrote a list. A list of 100 things I’d like to do while I’m still single”

8. Twilight and all that hype

“So I started reading Twilight last night. It’s the first book in the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. But like you didn’t know that already. I’ve been hearing about Twilight for a while now.. but I’ve been hearing about Edward Cullen for longer what with all the Team”

9. Beauty is

“I like beautiful things. Maybe this makes me shallow but I like them all the same. I like beautiful people but mostly when they are beautiful on the inside, I love perfumes but I love them even more if they come in pretty bottles, jewellery but especially jewellery that sparkles, pretty clothes but I really love gorgeous fabrics, stunning heels and I really don’t care if they are painful, I really love flowers and it’s a bonus if they smell nice.”

10. Stop

“Have you ever stopped and just listened? Right now. Stop. Listen. For me it’s the clittity clattery sound of fingers moving across a keyboard.”

Some of my favourite posts didn’t make it in here, but some did which I am glad for.

Perhaps some day I will do a post on my top ten favourite posts. But I’ve realised that I should never make promises I’m unlikely to keep.

Wait it Out

I’ve been neglecting my blog a little bit as of late so for those blog stalkers (yeah you know who you are!) of mine – I’m sorry. I’ll try and be a bit more consistent.

Went to Tasmania on the weekend and for a few extra days. Went for a wedding and a bit of a family holiday. I’ve got a lot of pictures so I might post them next time. Tried my hand a few nature-ish type shots.

Love this photo.

And sit here cold?
We’ll be long gone by then.
And lackluster in dust we lay
’round old magazines.
Fluorescent lighting sets the scene
For all we could and should be being
In the one life that we’ve got

Imogen Heap – Wait it Out

The Cherry Blossom Girl

Does anyone else have the words with friends ap on the iphone? It’s scrabble and you can play with your friends! It’s great!

I’ve got an assignment due on Monday that’s worth 60% of my grade, I started in yesterday. Whoops.

Going to see Paramore on Sunday night with Georgia. Relient K are supporting. Should be a pretty sweet gig. Hope my assignment is finished in time. And that it doesn’t rain.

Love Sophia Bush. Quite the hottness.

I love Friday’s. It’s so quiet in the office that I can steadily work whilst listening to my ipod, blogging and preparing mentally for assignmenting. Anyone is free to bring me study treats this weekend! I’ll be cooped up in the office at Mum’s for sure.

I’d sooner buy, defying gravity. Kiss me goodbye – I’m defying gravity! And you can’t hold me down! – Wicked

Hey all

This is my best beautiful buddy Laura.

Let me tell you all about her.

I met Laura when we both 13 turning 14. The year was 2002 and I had the most ridiculously short hair and Laura was the Middle School Captain.

A friendship developed over common interests, common subjects and common friends. But what developed was not common at all. Rather unusual and special and a little bit unbreakable.

Sharing important moments together like maths, break ups, school captains retreats, formals, youth camps, blogging, Hillsong, Europe 08 planning, connect groups, NERF, long distance friendship for 3 months, reverb, interpretive white board erasing, lunch dates, the Book, new houses, countless birthday parties, letters, letters written backwards – this is only part of the history that is Laura and Steffany.

Laura has got about a million and one different skills – photography, painting, sock making, dancing, preaching, drawing, writing. She’s gorgeous as get all out – yet they are almost none of the reasons I love her. I love her because she is kind. I love her because she is honest. I love her because she is faithful. I love her because she is supportive. I love her because she is funny. I love her because she thinks I am funny. I love her because she loves Jesus. I love her because she isn’t afraid of being amazing. I love her, like a lot.

Next year we celebrate our 10 year frieneversary. We’ll have to celebrate before she leaves. I’m going to miss her a crazy amount – but I know our friendship has got guts and can hack it. 🙂

Will Swanson.. I’m not letting her go that easy!

Love Steffa xo

September Wrap Up

Have been a bit MIA lately and that’s due to busy weekends and busy weeks filled with all kinds of different delights that I might post up soon including some pictures of my birthday and birthday gifts.

Got to catch up with Pierson on the weekend for a bit and it was SO good to see him. Also managed to get some footage of him for my ‘LIFE’ movie. Oh I haven’t told you about that? I’m making a movie of my life. Actually, more like my life lately as I haven’t been filming for the last 22 years. Would really love a better camera for filming.. my camera actually does a great job, but something to do with the format.. I have to convert it to use on my mac, and when I convert it, the quality drops. Not sure why anyone would want to know that?

In the meantime.. please enjoy – if you haven’t already seen it, my Hillsong 2010 movie.

Saw Charlie St Cloud on my birthday. Went mostly cos I love a bit of Zac Efron in my life, and especially on my birthday.

Was a bit of a strange sort of movie with an interesting (strange) kind of plot line. The character of Charlie St Cloud was pretty believable. Despite the fact that he talks to ghosts, he doesn’t come across as too ridiculous. Wasn’t as sad as I thought it was going to be either. Two girls were chatting about the movie as we left the cinema and one girl was all ‘Wow, I’ve never heard Zac talk so much, didn’t like that at all’. Haha! However I think Mr Efron’s acting skills have definitely improved and I think I’ll love anything he does – BUT I still prefer him as Troy Bolton. You really can’t beat the cheesy over the top HSM.

In other news, university is kind of crazy at the moment hence the lack of blogging. I realise that I don’t blog when I’m busy, I blog when I’m bored. Mostly finished a presentation off on the weekend, and just got one more big assignment before I’m done with assignments for the year. I think I just have one exam and then I’m done for a while.

I got two pairs of shoes from Blaine and Tegan for my birthday! Below is the pair I could find a picture of online! How lucky am I?
