Meet 23-year old Vlogger, Stephanie Villa aka Soothing Sista, based right out of San Francisco. As a dedicated follower of her favorite beauty and fashion YouTubers, it only felt right for her to begin recording videos of her own. Her down-to-earth personality and edgy style has easily made her one of our current go-to’s for make up tips and outfit inspirations. We recently caught up with Stephanie to get the scoop about her beauty regimen, her take on the perfect holiday outfit, and what she’s eyeing for her wishlist this holiday season! Read more…
Koshka: Describe your personal style in 3 words.
Stephanie: Dark, Chill, Evolving
K: What’s your number one beauty tip you live by?
S: I actually have really sensitive skin prone to breakouts so I have to be really careful about my skin regime. I would have to say my number one tip is to always wash your face before you sleep. Failing to do this ends up in breakouts for me every time.
K: You’ve said you love traveling. Where’s a place you dream of visiting?
S: I’ve started this obsession with hot springs and I would love to hot springs hop around the Japanese countryside and visit the towns in between!!
K: Where will you be heading to for the holidays?
S: I’m actually just staying home with my family this year. I’ve been traveling so much that I’m really looking forward to chillin’ at home and watching some LOTR with my dad. Haha
K: Describe to us your idea of the perfect holiday outfit.
S: This is about the time when I whip out my thrifted furs. So I’m thinking, my big off-white fur collar on top of an oversized black sweater paired with this amazing plaid pencil skirt I just got and of course some chunky platforms to give me some height!
K: What are you giving everyone on your holiday list this year?
S: I usually like making gifts so I’m giving a lot of my friends little succulent pots this year! I actually just uploaded a DIY tutorial on them on my youtube channel. (Watch here!) I wish I had more time because I would also embroider little coin pouches. There’s always next year!
A. Lazy Oaf Cat Nip Socks: I love knee-highs and I love anything with little animals on them so these socks are my jam. I would wear these with a mini dress, a leather moto jacket, and a beanie. A cute piece like this can really balance out the sexiness in an outfit.
B. By Zoe Circle Jacket: I’m in love with this collar! I think this jacket would make any daytime outfit look so put together even if you just threw on random clothes and rushed out the door.
C. Black Embroidered Pants: I’m so into embroidering and I wish I had the patience to do something like this myself. Throw a kimono and some platforms on and you pretty much have my ideal going out ensemble.
D. Leather Moto Vest: Vests are just the perfect layering tool. I could imagine myself wearing this on top of a jean jacket and a flannel. Drooling.
E. Mink Pink Tears Us Apart Jumper: Watch her wear our jumper in the Alaskan Cold!
