what is a lifestylist and why you need one in your life

Shannon Paul



A lifestylist is a person who believes that investing in one's style means investing in one's happiness.  When I was ten I told my sister that when I grew up I wanted to tell people what to wear and how to set their dining room table properly.  It's funny how we know what our true passion is at such a young age.  Fast forward many years later...  I decided to take my love of  flowers, fashion, interior design and cocktail making and create a lifestyle business.

My goal is to create, inspire and help you live your best life!  As my business may seem a bit superficial on the surface it is so much more than that.  I am lucky to be able to affect my clients life in such a positive manner.  Whether it be designing the perfect setting and florals for your wedding day or special event, creating a home or business space that every time you walk in it makes you smile or showing you how to look and feel your best in your clothes I get to be a part of your best life and milestones.   Thanks so much for following me on this journey!!

why you should go to a greenhouse 


Flowers make people happpy!!  Not only for us die hard flower fanatics, everyone reaps the benefits.  And how often can you say that?! 

Flowers improve your emotional health.  You know how you can't help but smile and I mean a real, wrinkle causing smile when you receive flowers?  A study conducted at Rutgers University found what I have always know to be true; flowers have an immediate, positive impact on your happiness and overall mental health.

Fresh stems are a must have for my home.  Such an affordable luxury that makes a big impact in any space.  Love to see what your happy flowers look like!  Share a photo in the comments section.

A big thanks to the folks at Hendrick's Flower Shop & Greenhouses located in Lititz, Pa.  They grow the most stunning calla lilies I have ever seen!  My go to source when they are in season.

Can't forget to talk about the shoes!  Grey, suede coach booties.  They go with everything from jeans to a maxi dress.  A little platform and stacked heel make these comfy and cute.  Every girl needs a great bootie that she can walk in without fear of injury.
