Shawn Paul - Owner / Stylist

I split my time between here and Pittsburgh! I love to garden and create balanced habitats (what is that you ask? According to sciencing.com, a Balanced Ecosystem is a habitat in which animals, plants, and microorganisms interact with non-living factors such as landscapes and temperature to maintain a flow of materials and energy). I also love to cook! If you have any favorite recipes, send them my way. My favorite TV show is Arrested Development and my favorite movie is Drop Dead Gorgeous. I was also arrested in Mexico during college and it makes for a great story!
