Blog: So Shay
What inspired you to blog?
I remember it like it was yesterday…:P I was sitting in a sea of blue cubicles at my old office job (5 years ago I think?) surrounded by the constant noise of computer keyboards and the phone ringing non-stop. I needed a creative escape and outlet to help pass the time on my breaks. So, I started reading and was completely amazed at how the whole blog world worked. Being able to express yourself and tell a story through photos was so good for my soul. I had just got married, got my first big girl job, and felt like it would be fun to share our new lives as husband and wife on the web. I never thought anyone would read it, but they did, and I can honestly say blogging was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Why do you love shopping on FramesDirect.com?
I love shopping at Frames Direct because their customer services is top notch and there are so many awesome frames to choose from! Getting name brand sunglasses for less, too? SIGN ME UP! ??
What fashion trends are you loving right now?
I am in love with shift dresses. They are roomy, cute, fun, simple and soooo comfortable. They go with any type of shoe too which allows you to dress it up or dress it down! Hollaaaa!
Why are sunglasses such an important accessory?
I don't know why exactly, but I have always had the biggest collection of sunglasses. No, really. My husband thinks I'm crazy. But, I LOVE being able to have an assortment of different shades to pair with my outfits. I think sunglasses are important because not only do they protect your eyeballs ?? but they also are like the cherry on top to that perfect outfit. They can really jazz it up and make a bold or fun statement.
What's something outside the realm of fashion that inspires you?
I'm a big cornball but I love love, the meaning of marriage, photography, and music.
When and where were you most happiest?
I'm a pretty happy person by nature (my Mom said I was smiling when I came out of her womb!) but I would say I am the happiest when I'm with my husband, friends and/or family gathered around our dinner table in my backyard surrounded by twinkly lights. Loved ones, good food, music, and laughter will always put a smile on my face! ??
