Hi, I’m Sarah!

I’m 32 and live in Philadelphia with my rescue dogs, Arya and Buddy. I started Shades of Sarah in 2010 because I wanted my own space to blog about whatever caught my eye: a cool movie, a pretty dress, an interesting news story, whatever.

I grew up in South Florida before moving to New York for college and then ending up in Philadelphia. Now, I spend my days writing for an online publication, and my nights exploring Philly or watching sports or TV while scrolling Twitter. (I should pick up books more often.)

I have a weakness for iced chai lattes (my current favorite is Little Susie’s) and I never turn down croquettas or empanadas. I miss Publix on a weekly basis, and if you give me one of their sugar cookies, I will love you forever.

You can also find me on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr, or email me if you want to chat!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
