Hi, my name is Shuba-Ilea, and I am so happy you stopped by! I am a writer living in NYC with my husband. I was born and raised here, and I have an intense love-hate relationship with NY. I love books, strong coffee, and vacations that include the beach.
In 2015 I was in need of a challenge. Reading blogs is one of my favorite pastimes, and so I started Shubalicious.com to give myself a creative outlet and to make myself write more.
I didn’t know what would happen I just wanted to share my thoughts and ideas with more people than my immediate circle.
But I am evolving and so is this blog.
Recently I got tired of living for the weekends, and so I decided to quit my job and take some time to figure out what I want to do next professionally.
I have always loved to read, and I have always loved to express myself through writing. In the earliest memory I have of myself, I wanted to write something down so I grabbed a little notepad and I started scribbling. I was very young, so, of course, I didn’t know how to write. When I realized that I wasn’t writing, only scribbling, I stopped and ran to my mother insisting with enthusiasm that she teach me how to write because I didn’t know how to and I wanted to write something down. She calmed me down by promising that she would teach me.
Since then the written word has been a huge part of my life. My books are my prized possessions. I have a huge appetite for fiction and a weakness for young adult dystopian fiction.
I am looking forward to sharing my journey here and connecting with you.
There is so much freedom to create your path these days. A blog is a place where I can bring together my passions and see what takes shape.
My goal is to provide you with read-worthy posts. Hopefully, you will leave feeling inspired.
If you have questions or just wanna chat, please reach out. I love hearing from you. So leave me a comment or email me at Shuba (at) Shubalicious.com.
Thanks for visiting!
