Today, Shea is press secretary for U.S. Congressman Mike Rogers (R) of Alabama's 3rd district.
Shea lives in Washington D.C. and ... she's getting married. The lucky guy is Ben Miller, also of Washington, D.C. Shea is originally from Oxford, Ala. and Ben is originally from Alpharetta, Ga.
The marriage is an important part of this story. Shea's blog is about her engagement and wedding, as well as the fashion associated with the celebration. Shea is "bringing pretty to the city," as her blog's title attests.
OK, for the next part, you need to promise me something first ... you won't get upset. Yes, Shea and Ben are getting married. Ben went to school at - Alabama. I know. (Take a breath.) A Tigerette marries an Alabama graduate? What's next ... dogs and cats living together! (Thank you Bill Murray/Ghostbusters.)
But wait, by all accounts Ben is a talented, smart and caring guy - with a good heart. Also, and it is the most important thing, he makes Shea happy. Now, are we all dealing with this news well? Take a moment -- and then watch their movie.
Feel better now? Let's move on...
Shea's blog is all about fashion, her life in D.C. and the journey to marriage. It is also about her, just for fun and in her spare time (like she has any), new business. She will do everything from consult on style to organize your closet. Hey, don't think this is something just for ladies. Shea notes, her very first customer was -- a guy. Makes sense when you think about it. How many organized guys do you know - especially at home?
"I learned to sing the fight song before I could actually talk. I think I appreciate Auburn now as an adult."
Shea "can still remember the feel of the crisp autumn air and the warm sunshine on walks to class, the smell of Tichenor Hall and the excitement and newness of being on my own for the first time. It was the experience of a lifetime!"
Shea served on the board for PRCA (Auburn's Student PR Council), as vice president and she was elected by her fellow students to serve as President of the College of Liberal Arts. Other campus activities include serving as a Tigerette and a member of Phi Mu social sorority.
"My blog is focused on fashion and my journey in D.C. from day to day to planning my wedding to traveling. It's really just for fun and it was an outlet I needed to break the routine."
"It's all about traveling, staying busy, trying new looks and documenting everything by always having a camera or my iphone," said Shea.
"I think it is a combination of expressing myself and inspiring others to be the best they can be - I want people to feel good about themselves and that is my bottom line."
Editor's Note: This series highlights students and alumni blogging.
Whether it be for personal pleasure or for work, the practice seems to be growing.
This has now become a five-week series.
