ANNOUNCEMENT: New Impulsive Buy Reviewer Stephanie

Written by | December 1, 2010

Topics: Announcement

Hi everybody! I’m Stephanie, one of the newest writers for the Impulsive Buy.

When I was a kid, I wanted to write comic books, despite having a teacher tell me I would make more money writing novels. (Ha! You’d think he’d know more about penury, being, you know… a teacher and all.) So naturally, 80 bajillion years later, I wound up writing for an awesome product review blog! Yay, me!

I live in Los Angeles and work in the entertainment industry. Having come from Kansas (after a four-year collegiate stint in Michigan… Go Blue), it was here in LA where I learned the strange local custom of simultaneously loving food and hating one’s body. We partake then we self-punish. Dining out often fosters whining. Office birthdays inevitably bring mental suffering. (On that note, why buy a dozen cupcakes if nine out of ten people aren’t going to eat them, and the one outsider is just going to slice the tiniest sliver from one cupcake and leave the rest? They should just buy one cupcake and make it be for everybody. Then the sugar addicts can get their effing cake shavings, no one will abuse themselves for hours on end with kettlebells, and we can all shut up about it. I’m shutting up about it right now.)

Anyway, I eat food, and I love it. I’m a rebel, I guess. I can’t stand sliced avocado on sandwiches, but I keep an open mind about mostly everything else. That is what brings me here to The Impulsive Buy. I like to try new things, and I blow a gasket become terribly disappointed when a product doesn’t live up to the hype.

I’m here to give you the straight story. So, think of me as your epicurean private eye… a gumshoe endlessly thumbing through a stack of blurry, black & white telephoto snapshots of new and exciting products that may look like sugar and spice but is really poison through and through. It’s sad that you can hardly trust a soul out here in this filthy city, but it’s a sad world, doll… and I’m just here to save you the tears.

    Hi Stephanie! I love your writing style so far. I actually have the same type of experience of growing up in NW OHio and living in the Washington DC area. People are around here are so shallow!
