Meet the Stela 9 Girl: Annie


We’re switching things up a tad here at the Stela 9 HQ. Each Stela 9 girl is going to channel her inner goddess of writing and contribute some ever-so-wise and charmingly unique viewpoints on a variety of matters consisting of the usual suspects of interest: fashion, beauty, travel, food, easy DIY’s, and anything else we feel like talking about. ‘Cause like… 6 opinions are better than 1, right? Duh.

Before we dive right in, I figured it would be a good (and quite clever) idea for each of you to get to know each of us a little more personally. What better way than a quick questionnaire that reveals really important and ‘omg, I totally need to know’ details – like our celebrity crush, most awkward date, and most embarrassing moment.

Our first daring tell-all comes from our Customer Relations and Account Manager, Annie Rose. Annie is originally from Baltimore and started working with Stela 9 in January of this year. This pretty babe fit into our little tribe so flawlessly, I can’t even fathom her not being around. Her ‘fix-it’ and direct, yet polite, attitude makes her a natural pro at what she does. Work aside, her easy vibe and exceptional listening skills makes her the perfect person to run to when you need that pressing, life-changing advice. Like, “what do I do about this dumb boy who’s ruining everything?” or “does this tank make me look chunky?” She’s no holds-barre, so if you’re being the crazy one or actually do look like Honey Boo Boo in a size 2T shirt, she has no qualms in telling you. Nicely, of course. We all need that reality check sometimes, am I right?! Oh, and have I mentioned that she has the world’s best eyelashes? Ok, enough of me giving you the jist, allow her to tell you a little more herself.

*PS. In case you wonder about her nickname, it’s her alter-ego. AKA the name she used to give out as a single gal out on the town with an adult beverage in hand. She doesn’t mess around with this. So much so, her boyfriend thought it was her name for a couple months. Some of his family members still do. A round of applause for our girl, who else in the world can actually pull that off.

The most awkward date I’ve ever been on: Once I went on a date for Valentines Day.

In 5 years, I see myself: I honestly have no idea : )
