Meet Sheena - "...The girl behind the blog, Style By Sheena. I work as a blogger and a SUPERSTAR Self Image coach. I love bringing out what makes you Uniquely YOU and reasons you should love yourself! My blog is known for its tongue in cheek approach to style. Through my self image coaching I SHIFT the Mind, Body & Self Image to bring out your best YOU. Style By Sheena is the place where I celebrate my love for style. I'm a total girly, girl, so its to be expected. The blog was born out of a need for offbeat girls like me to have a blog that reflected our multifaceted interest in style and all the things that influence our style in more of a tongue in cheek fashion. My passion for fashion began early on and grew when I started a lifestyle brand in 2009 with Aaron Cohen, called Children of the Now. I am currently on a wild ride, exploring my own sense of fun and flirty style, while at the same time, attempting to give the girls some inspiration. I listen to Spotify and visit the Shaderoom in the morning while drinking my Hazelnut Iced Coffee. When I’m not blogging or hanging out in my high heels, I’m a full time image and marketing consultant. I also create content for YouTube, which have been watched over 100k times. Lets Socialize on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat (StyleBySheena), Facebook, and YouTube." via www.stylebysheena.com (SISS) Hi Sheena, where are you from and where are you currently spending your time?
