WELCOME TO DINE LIKE SHAY
Hi, I’m Shayla and I spend way too much time talking about food.
I have always spent way too much time wondering about what I was going to eat or cook. I started this blog because I grew up wanting to be like the food bloggers that I saw on FoodGawker. The photography on there is just so inspiring! I started experimenting with my cooking because of my mother and Food Network. I woke up one day and decided to start this thing without any knowledge in photography or writing.
In the future, I plan to develop cook books and release my own line of snacks. I cannot wait to start this journey and I’m so thankful for all of my followers. You guys mean the world to me! Especially the ones that were following me when I was posting a smoothie everyday photographed with my horrible iPhone. Haha. I now shoot with a Canon Rebel T6, eventually I plan to upgrade to a Mark 5D IV!
You really have to look inside yourself and find your own inner strength, and say, ‘I’m proud of what I am and who I am, and I’m just going to be myself.’
LOSING IS NOT AN OPTION.
Whenever I’m not obsessing over food or photography, I’m taking care of my beautiful daughter Viviana and being a wife to my husband Petro. They inspire me to keep going during times that I’d prefer to just stop and do something else. The journey to running this blog has been very long and hard, but I wouldn’t change a thing!
Outside of being a mother and running this blog, I spend a lot of my time listening to or talking about music. My favorite genres are R&B, Jazz, Instrumental Hip Hop, and IDM.
Television is another obsession of mine! Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Grey’s Anatomy, The Wire, Girlfriend’s Guide To Divorce, How I Met Your Mother, Girlfriends, Desperate Housewives, Living Single, Game of Thrones, etc.. Don’t even get me started on Food Network!
