I’m a recovering journalist, a media junkie and a shopaholic. I’m a list maker, event planner and trend spotter. I’m a beach person with a bad case of wanderlust. I’m an animal lover and a football fan. I love music with a little twang or a lot of soul. A good story or a good song often make me cry.
I proudly call Columbia, S.C., my home, but relocated to Los Angeles in January 2011 after my husband, Kenley, accepted a new job.
I started this blog to stay connected with my friends and family back home, but I also hope to offer insights into trends, lifestyles and culture.
Consider Shellevation your concierge: part travel guide, part fashion adviser and part social director.
Thanks to Kenley, the best headline writer and copy editor I know, who helped me develop my Twitter handle, @shellevator, and the name of this blog. It’s hip, positive and a little irreverent, kinda like me.
