Hey y’all, welcome to Just Living by Madeline Shields, a lifestyle blog where I share a lot of my personal life and content in hopes of helping other women feel supported and confident!
I am passionate about expanding this platform to promote awareness of self-care and its importance for women’s health and mental health. Part of that focus of self-care really involves having a steady supportive community to turn to and that is what I hope to create here.
I graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor’s Degree and majored in women’s studies. After undergrad, I attended Boston College for my Masters in Social Work, with a concentration in mental health. I have always had an interest in women’s health and mental health, which is what inspires me today to create a supportive community and resource for all women.
I intend to use my platform to become part of that supportive community for women to read and share experiences that make them feel supported and ultimately more confident in themselves. Whether it is through simple aspects of my day-to-day life like sharing clean natural beauty finds to save y’all some time in your busy schedule, or sharing about my personal mental health struggles, I hope that these shared experiences create a supportive, open, and non-judgmental community for women.
I am here to share and be that open book for y’all – think of me as your tall bestie who you can ask anything and turn to for everyday helpful tips. I’m excited to share my Just Living life with you!
