Meet Our 20-Something NYC Contributing Editor Meghann Stephenson

It’s time to meet yet another member of the small and talented team of ladies here at Bleu. Say hello to Meghann Stephenson, our 20-something, Brooklyn-based, Contributing Editor. Meghann likes to write about all things wellness, healthy and delicious food, and natural beauty. That is, of course, when she’s not too busy planning her upcoming wedding or working as a freelance illustrator (her work is unreal, you should hire her!) and creative consultant. She’s also been developing her latest venture and brand M. Finley Studio — a collection of stunning scarves she’s created and is launching in the near future. There’s no argument that Meghann brings a plethora of talent to our table, but she’s also cat-mom to one of the world’s cutest felines, an oatmeal master in the kitchen, and she has a knack for interiors — her Williamsburg apartment is a literal goals. Let’s meet her!
