About the Author

23 years old. Word weaver. Lover of love. Coffee addict.

A woman of curious nature, my name is Shayna. I am wild & reserved. Humbled & proud. Quiet & clamorous. Strange & familiar. You’ll always find me with a coffee cup in one hand and a book in the other while chasing a toddler around the house and simultaneously picking up as he goes along. 

I like alternative fashion, punk rock, finding new music, motherhood, beauty, trying out new foods, watching Netflix, and crafting. 

Blogging since 2005, I’ve had an innumerable amount of blogs on a vast number of platforms. Finally, I’ve found one to call home: The Lovely Cicada. This blog is a piece of myself I extend to you.
