We can not contain our excitement! Why you ask? Because ShayMitchell.com was featured today in the New York times - yes, the New York times - being compared to Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog Goop.
Mentioned in the article with other amazing ‘Celeb Lifestyle Blogs’ as Goop-esque imitators - we are proud of our passion project and happy we have all of you supporting it! Thanks for being loyal fans and the reason why we wake up and work on it!
Check out the article here.
Honestly, one of the best parts of doing a shoot is capturing moments behind the scenes and being able to show you guys. I walk around with our Canon and get shots from my point of view and Shay sneaks in a couple of her up close and personal selfies as well.
Getting ‘THE SHOT’ is an amazing feeling, but being there between wardrobe, location and lens changes - THESE are the moments leading up to “it’s a wrap” that are candid, fun and raw.
This shoot was awesome to be apart of - the photographer was a genius, and the team was fluid and relaxed through out the whole day. In addition, the theme was ‘Metallics’ - beyond amazing. All in all, it was a fun day with an awesome team and an ideal outcome…great hair, gorg makeup and a bomb wardrobe - and great shots!
Shay and her sexy face mask the night before…
Steph Stone came over the night before to do Shay’s Metallic inspired mani…
We call this the ‘Oil Spill’ mani…
Bright, fun and eclectic accessories!
Always love a good shoe shot…
Color, metallic, and texture…oh my!
Takes two for assembley…haha!
Hair did, makeup did, all did…
I am notorious for snapping shots of the monitor pics - and always thankful I did in the end…this whole look was stunning!!!!!

I absolutely loved my makeup Carlene did for the Teen Choice Awards - the perfect mix of subtle but glam! After the flood of questions asking how we achieved this look below is a step-by-step of how Carlene nailed this look and what products she used (I also added a few pictures of Steph Stone who did my nails and some pics of the finished look):
How to get this look:
This look is NOT as complicated as it looks and you can easily play around with the products you have at home and try this out for a night out with the gals or a hot date!
Can we talk about my manicure? Steph Stone “Nailed” it again with a nude polish that didn’t compete with my outift and left my nails happy and “polished” (two puns in one sentence hahaha )
The nail “Unicorn” herself…
And drum roll…
The finished Look! Couldn’t have done it without everyone from my team - they are mega!!!

I am still pinching myself as I revel in the joy of being on the cover of ELLE Canada! As a proud Canadian, this is a Milestone in any Canadian entertainers career! As you all know - I love giving you a behind the scenes experience of all of my shoots and share some funny and memorable moments - and let’s be honest who doesn’t want to see all the clothes, accessories and products I was able to sample as well ;)
One thing I love about photo shoots is getting my nails done. This color is now one of my go-to’s … shellac is a lot better for your nails too and is easier to take off!
Let’s not forget about the clothes - the best and most fun part of the shoot (especially when there are dresses right off the runway)!
The hardest part is choosing what to wear - I loved this Zimmermann bathing suit with these striped shorts by Edith A. Miller
Shoes on shoes on shoes! Oh my!
Although I was shooting for the July cover it was chilllllllyyyyy in Santa Monica that day!
Loved me these Louboutins…
My publisict and friend Tej hanging out with me on set!
Just hanging in a hammock… in heels and a Peter Pilotte dress…so casual :P haha
It’s a tradition to have a pic together from every shoot :)
Flowers in my hair - felt like a hippie Hawaiian child!
The last part was taking a look at the photos we shot that day using mock template covers…PINCH ME! What did you all think of the cover chosen?
What a fun day! Hope you loved this issue!
