Hey, I'm Shea, an Alabama native and Atlanta transplant who is navigating life by trying to make things sound good and look pretty. I'm currently a freelance writer and editor with bylines in Bustle, USA Today's Make It Grateful, My First Apartment, an


What does that mean exactly? I've got a passion for reading, writing, and all things makeup, skin care, and fashion. In fact, I spend most of my days working as a freelance fashion, beauty, and lifestyle writer with bylines at Bustle, USA Today, My First Apartment, and Brit + Co.


If I'm not tracking down the latest beauty launch or plus size clothing and fashion news, I've got my nose stuck in a young adult book — whether it's someone else's or the one I'm trying to write depends on the day. Of course, when I'm not reading and writing, my television is almost always on Bravo (especially if Vanderpump Rules or Real Housewives of Atlanta is on) or there's a Harry Potter film playing in the background.


Red wine and coffee are my tastebuds' weaknesses, and I've got an obsession with my cats that surely concerns non-pet owners. My dream? To create something that helps someone else.
