hello...

thanks for stopping by.

My name's Shel, a Sydney based freelancer in the creative world... That's what we usually say right, when people ask, "now you, tell me about yourself." - we go about stating our name and then very quickly cut to the chase about what we do, Monday to Friday, 9 till 5. And sure, that's fine, but what about everything else that we long to do during Monday to Friday, 9 till 5? Let's play this out again...

My name's Shel, I'm lucky enough to live by one of the best beaches in Sydney, and share my time with my husband, two chihuahuas Miki & Ellie, and a close group of special friends and family.

I love to keep life simple and necessary, with a dash of 'life splurge' here and there. I love to travel & explore, understand how the world works, eat #allthefoods (who doesn't!) and create a fulfilling life for myself, that may not be drenched in rolling dollar bills, but well invested with passion... Because I've figured out that living well isn't about living with wealth - it's just about being realistic with living best within your means - & we should all be able to experience some pure enjoyment for all our hard work. And I like to usually do all this whilst wearing stripes!

So here's thisshellife. I hope I inspire you with ideas for your own ideas; life hacks, travel tips, quick delicious food things & some honest belly laughs - we all know they are the best kind, even if you don't have abs! It's totally OK to not have abs...
