Hello all! My name is Shelby and I’ll be your host here at Poppy and Fin. Pull up a chair, pour a cup of coffee, and get comfy. Unless you like to be uncomfortable while you read, in which case do your thing. I’m all about free will.

This blog is named after the loves of my life, my (fur) children, Poppy and Finley. Without whom I would be a lot richer and less covered in fur, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I am 100% that insane person who throws birthday parties for them and if you want to judge me that’s cool, just know I would invite you if you wanted to come.

I consider myself what I like to call a “serial hobbyist,” which basically means I’m interested in about 5 million projects at any given time. However, if you ask me in person what my hobbies are, all I will be able to think of off the top of my head is “binge watching Netflix”. Which arguably is also one of them. Other than that, I find joy in baking, crafting, interior decor, beauty, and the occult. I.e. crystals and astrology. I’m a Cancer sun with a Capricorn moon, if you were wondering.

In the spirit of being a serial hobbyist, on this website you will find a bunch of subjects to choose from. Feel like redecorating your entire house? There’s a post for that. Need advice about your skin? Yep there’s one for that too. Life is too short to settle on one thing you’re interested in! I say this as my bank account gives me major side eye. C’est la vie.

In real life I’m a vegan, an aesthetician of seven years, and I’m a Social Media Manager for a couple of wonderful small businesses. I grew up in Boise, but I’m currently in Idaho Falls supporting my boyfriend while he kicks ass at work (humble brag). I’m 26 going on 80, and my family consists of my two parental units and two sisters, one older and one younger. Yes, I am the quintessential middle child. Can you tell? My mom says the nose rings give it away.

I hope you enjoy your time here and I welcome you to comment and ask questions about anything your heart desires. However, my only hospital knowledge is from watching Grey’s Anatomy so if you have a medical issue, here is maybe not the place for *those* questions. Everything else I will do my best to help with. Thanks for stopping by!

Love and light,
