Hello there, my name is Stella, I’m 30 years old, and I am in love with my beautiful little family. I am married to my best friend, Robin, and am Mama to our little Noah and baby girl Kaia – two boys and a lady who make me fall in love with my life more every single day. Our current home is Cape Town, a place that has captured my heart and has me living in the moment. Our life has us moving around a lot and so my roots are forever drifting in mid air, but in my heart I know that they are deeply embedded, perhaps not in one place but in one beautiful little family, which I get to call my own.
I’m German-born but together with my four brothers (yes four!), raised as a third culture kid, by my two wonderful parents who taught me nothing less than to love, respect, appreciate, learn and embrace. Having lived in nine countries so far and traveled to over 60, my eyes have opened to so many beauties of this world, allowed me to learn languages and meet amazing people. I’m an avid traveler yet I am happiest at home, where my favourite place has always been the kitchen.
When I am not a full time mama, I am a lifestyle stationery designer and founder-in-process of Stellarize Lifestyle Stationery, where I design unique stationery and gorgeous gifts that let you organize your life in style. My aim is to offer thoughtful and unique products, designed with love. Products that help me feel inspired and motivated when organizing and planning daily life, and products that help me nourish a balanced life, where capturing memories and the small thing in life, are valued just as much. I believe that looking backwards and reflecting can inspire you to look forward thoughtfully and purposefully.
In my previous life, I studied Organisational Psychology and worked in Organisational Development and Marketing but listening to my heart and following my dreams has pushed me onwards to where I am now. I couldn’t be happier.
