Welcome to my blog. I’m Shaindel, a #hotmess mom, originally from London, England (yes I do have a fabulous British accent). I now live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband and 5 kids, ages nine through one (hence the name Shaindel’s Shenanigans).
One of my most favorite things to do is to cook and bake, in fact my day job involves cooking lunches for 175 students and teachers in a school, yes its exhausting and the excitement around it only adds to my life full of shenanigans.
Our family are observant Jews and quite often you will see me preparing, cooking and baking for Shabbat or one of our many holidays. I always say its a good thing I enjoy hanging out in the kitchen since food is such an integral part of Jewish life. I often get really creative in the kitchen when I cook for our holidays and you can find some of my recipes here.
In my spare time, (what spare time, right) another favorite thing of mine is helping women feel and look beautiful. I don’t just sell LuLaRoe clothing and Origami Owl jewelry – nothing makes me happier then creating incredible outfits for and designing gorgeous lockets for my friends (yes, my customers have become my friends)
With being so busy I forgot about one person – myself and I kept trying to pour from an empty cup. I’ve recently begun a journey to becoming more healthy, not just in body but in mind as well. Come join me on Instagram where I share my triumphs and challenges, recipes and shenanigans as they occur (plus you get to hear my killer accent).
Hope the rest of your day is blessed and beautiful!
