Stassi Schroeder is most known from Bravo’s hit show Vanderpump Rules. She is most well-known for her bold personality and having no-filter in her own life. After seven seasons of heartache and adventures in West Hollywood Stassi explores her Next Level Basic side to her personality, embracing her inner basic bitch. SUR Restaurant & Lounge is best served with disaster-filled nights full of drama, but that doesn’t stop Stassi Schroeder from being the queen of the lounge & the Hollywood area.
Her empire continues to rise as she runs her own podcast Straight up with Stassi and has transformed her once small fashion blog into a professional archive with a specialized style section with the latest trends styled by Stassi herself. This section includes style tips, makeup favorites, and much more. In her newest novel, the New-York Times Bestseller tells fans about growing up before her life hosting Vanderpump Rules on Bravo, finding her passion as a stylist/writer in the fashion world, and how this small reality show turned big.
Meeting the Vanderpump Rules star was an ultimate dream of mine. Being a fan of the show for so many years I was ecstatic when I had the opportunity to meet her in person. She’s always been one of my biggest inspirations within the industry for embracing everything that she is, especially her inner basic bitch. Her strong presence always inspires me to become a better version of myself in chasing my own dreams for the future.
A major theme discussed in the novel was female empowerment/being your own #GirlBoss in the world. To some, this may sound intimidating, but it is of my opinion that similar to Stassi’s if you do not make your presence known in the world it may be lost if you do not claim your strength/independence in this world. This left me wondering the question “If you don’t make a statement in this world, then who are you really?” Stassi shares stories of how independence among women is so undervalued in today’s world. Stassi spoke at the Woman of the Year Summit for Glamour Magazine promoting her new novel stating that independence is intimidating to those who cannot handle a strong woman’s presence. That to me is a total #GirlBoss moment in itself. She stands strong showing the world that the qualities some may define as ‘bitchy’ are the same attributes made to find your own pathway in life, creating a life that you love.

This Sunday I couldn’t put this book down. I’m already 200 pages deep. Life Uploaded tells the story of a popular YouTuber Harper (Sierra Furtado) trying to survive the hallways of high school dealing with best friend drama, bullies, and her rising career. As if that couldn’t be enough to juggle. She finds herself on a rooftop at a huge party with her new friend Ellie. The anxiety of the crowd is setting in. Harper feels out of place when suddenly she bumps into her ultimate Man-Crush Monday Dalton James! She almost freezes in his presence. With her eyes wide Harper lands a date with her favorite movie star! How could life get any better right?! There’s just one problem… an unknown Twitter troll known by the name of @ThatBitchHarper. This person somehow has been tracking her every move in the limelight and knows her entire existence. Harper’s golden lifestyle has taken a turn for the worst because this person knows her in her personal life and her professional life. I wonder who it could be? You’ll have to read the story to find out the rest.
Self-confidence to me means you’re telling the world who you are through your actions. Just as the definition says, every day is a choice. You can either choose to strive to be a better person each and every day, or dwindle into the darkness of self-doubt… caring way too much about other people’s opinions instead of your own. I was that person searching everywhere for self-approval from others. Good or bad I still wouldn’t feel complete inside like there was a piece missing. That’s because there was a whole chunk missing that hadn’t yet been explored. You can go your entire life letting the world rule you… But until you rule the world you’ll be living in its shadow. Go out & be who you were created to be, and you will set the world on fire!
In today’s age society puts a huge amount of pressure on us as people to be their version of perfect. Every day magazines are being sold promoting perfection. They want an actress/model who barely eats but looks good on camera, or a flawless face on the newest cover of Vogue. Doing this only shows us a world that it is more messed up than we thought. Models should be able to eat a burger and not worry that during their next casting call they won’t be cut because they are “overweight” and need to eat less. It’s not right! The world should focus on spreading positivity instead of hate. No one can ever live up to that expectation not even the most “perfect” person in this world. We are not defined by what society thinks but only how we view ourselves. Because if we let society cloud our thinking who would we be?
I can tell you what our world would look like. People would be roaming the streets without any luster in their eyes only sulking in misery. Our planet would slowly fade to black and white. Without the creative minds in this world, our society would only remain the same old boring place. My main goal for my blog is empowering people through my writing. I want to let people know that is okay to be different. Just because your best friend isn’t interested in the same thing as you are doesn’t make you any less of a person. It makes you who you are! You should celebrate that knowing that you are not like the rest of the crowd and that’s what makes you YOU.
