Confetti Talk: Shane.

Confetti Talk is a new series on Always, S that introduces you to some of my big blogging inspirations! You’ll learn all about what they do, what makes them happy, and how they stay happy. And be prepared for a whole lotta PINK. Real people, real happy. Throwing kindness around like confetti.

Who are you?

I’m a Midwest gal hailing from Columbus Ohio. Two years ago, I found my first full time job across the world in Sydney, Australia. Ever since then, the travel bug has bitten and I can’t see enough of the world! Next up? An 18-country Eurotrip!

What makes you happy? 


Traveling, practicing yoga, and empowering young women to let their best selves shine.

What is one thing you would tell your high school self?

Being “popular” means absolutely nothing out in the real world. Don’t get hung up on not fitting in.

What is one thing you use on a daily basis that you can’t live without?

Does coffee count? And my camera!

How do you stay positive when you’re stressed out?


Yoga is the best stress relief! I’ve traded my extra glass of vino for this new found, healthier stress relief.

For what in your life do you feel most grateful? How do you show that gratitude?

I feel grateful that I was given a healthy body that can carry me through each day. Practicing yoga has taught me to treat my body and mind with respect and love it deserves.

What kind of legacy do you want to leave?

I want to make a difference in people’s lives. This is the exact reason I left my first full time job in banking. I couldn’t see any tangible benefit I was making, beyond the bottom line. I want to help young girls who have struggled with anxiety and eating disorders.

When you’re 100, what will matter to you the most?

That I’ve seen all of the world I possibly can. New people, new cultures, new sights, new foods. Maybe every country of the world one day?


Why Shane inspires me: I met Shane through a Facebook group (as I did most of my blogger friends!) and immediately loved her relaxed and honest writing style, her travel photos, and her love for adventure! I admire Shane so much for her strength and her passion. It seems like she is both of these things, strong and passionate, in everything she does! I’m SO jealous of her big Eurotrip but can’t wait to hear all about it over on her blog!
