who's that girl?

hello friends! i'm jessica rae shropshire owner & creator of shop hello rae!
you can call me jess! 
let's dig in! i'm 30 which is crazy - when did that happen?! currently single & looking! dog mom of that 5 year old furry little guy below. 100% a crazy dog mom to my precious baby madden & i wear that title with honor! i am an only child - my mother passed 3 years ago & i miss her everyday. my dad is my number one supporter & best poppy to his grand-pup. i literally have the best friends & people in my life... like for reals. nothing compares to my tribe! 

i am a christ follower! daily i am striving to live in a way that puts him first. there are a few things that i am currently addicted to... coffee (duh), a good red lip, diet coke, any holiday shaped reeses, bad gal lash mascara by benefits, & hairspray. i am multi- talented & am passionate about a variety of hobbies. i love creating, crafting, & decorating my humble abode. i love to bake (i actually use to bake for extra money... birthday cakes, wedding cakes... it was messy & that side job didn't last long). i can sort of play guitar & grew up singing but never in front of people. i really love doing make-up & hair. the majority of my childhood was taken over by dance in which i learned all the tricks of the trade when it came to beauty. i am definitely not a professional... lets just say i'm a wanna be mua...

i enjoy serving in haiti & have spent 2 summers there. i plan to continue serving as long as the lord provides a way for me to go. the people of haiti & my friends that i have made there hold a huge chunk of my heart. i was an educator for a time. i taught special education inclusion/prek. very thankful for my time loving on kiddos! although i enjoyed being in the classroom, the creative side of me wanted to do more w/ fashion, clothing, & styling. i have a degree in fashion marketing & business administration. i have worked in the fashion world in many capacities. recently the lord has heavily been putting on my heart to trust him & be obedient in starting the hello rae journey... 

soooo... here i am. trusting. being obedient. taking that step.  

i want hello rae to be a space where you can come to find encouragement, inspiration of all kinds & of course amazing clothing for your closet. i vow to provide quality on trend products that won't break the bank, but  that makes you feel confident & beautiful! my number one priority is for you to be satisfied in whatever capacity this place serves you. 

seriously... from the bottom of my heart i can not thank you enough for being here! i'm looking forward to seeing what the lord does with hello rae & am so excited to serve you! if i can be of service to you in any way let me know!

xoxo - jess

not that i am speaking of being in need, for i have learned in whatever situation i am to be content. i know how to be brought low, & i know how to be abound. in any & every circumstance. i have learned the secret of facing plenty & hunger, adundance & need. i can do all things through christ who strengthens me. - philippians 4:11-13
