Lifestyle Blog By Shauna Young



I think I've always been a Day Dreamer... 

My day dream as a young girl was to write. I didn’t know what, I didn’t know why… all I knew is that I loved to write. I would have notebooks and journals, writing creatively, sharing my daily adventures and personal thoughts. 

I can’t remember the first time fashion struck a chord with me. I always loved dressing my dolls and playing those online games like MyScene dolls (I seriously just aged myself with those old school PC games), where you could dress them up and alter their clothing. I would spend hours creating different looks and I grew obsessed with fashion. 

I remember waking up early on weekend mornings to watch Fashion Television where I would sit and just watch runway after runway and interviews with designers. I fell in love with clothes, and I wanted to know everything about them. 

As I got older there was the Devil Wears Prada, the era of Gossip Girl, and soon enough there seemed to be an endless amount of inspiration for me to search for hours and try to recreate. This was the world of my day dreams. Here, I could be a writer, experiencing all things fashion and beautiful as I expressed my passion and love for such pieces through my words and tone. I would have a fantastic job at a magazine, where I would get to express myself creatively as well as get my hands on the fashion that inspired me in the first place. 
Unfortunately, while I had this world of day dreams, there was reality. And that looked nothing like this. 

In reality, I was getting degree after degree trying to be a lawyer, to only realize I never cared for it in the first place. I went through the daily motions of life thinking I was doing everything right because it was what you were supposed to do. I hated it, I really did, but I couldn't vocalize what I really wanted. 

I could never just sit myself down and say out loud “I want more!” I want to be creative, I want to explore, I want to be who I really am. It wasn’t until I graduated from my BA and made the decision to drop out of my next graduate diploma that I could finally be free of my true feelings. 

Yes I am passionate about different topics and I love learning about different topics (exercise science, fitness, politics, law, etc.) but at the end of the day… it’s writing and sharing that make me excited about life. 

And just like that... this blog was born. 

bellesreveries.com was created in March 2017. After spending months yearning over the idea of becoming a blogger, I bought a theme and threw together my two first posts. Months have passed and since then I feel like I have come alive because of this blog. Waking up and developing new content, shooting photos, editing all of the work is what energizes me and sparked something inside of me. I've finished my BA in Political Science, but let's be honest, going into politics is the last thing on my mind. Ever since I was a young girl I have always had a passion for fashion and beauty. So I'm that typical 20 something whose taking a chance and living life outside the box. I don't really have a plan, and frankly I'm okay with that. 

So who is Shauna? Here are the key points:

Montreal Living. Irish Dancer. Dog Lover. Tea Drinker. Favourite Scent is Fresh Flowers. Oatmeal is life. If you combined Blair Waldorf with Serena Van Der Woodsen you would get me. Posh Spice is my spirit animal. You can never own too many Candles. Nude-Pink lipstick is the way to go. Wanderlust, but also love staying home. Booty Workouts > Ab Workouts. Don't forget dessert.
