Hey there! First off, I would like to take the time out to thank you for visiting. Let’s take a second to figure out why you are here. Here might be a few reasons:

  • You’re a young creative who’s super passionate about reaching success
  • You currently are a full-time worker or student who has a hard time balancing your side-hustles and creative endeavors
  • You want to go after your passions but lack the confidence, drive and motivation to keep going

Whether you’re in need of  inspiration or self -development tips — you’re in the right place! 

OK, so a little about me. My name is Chelsea and I love creating content for young creatives by teaching them to go after their passions, stay motivated and get things done! (I also love fashion, so you might find some personal style on the blog!)


After earning a degree in Public Relations, roads lead me to my current full-time job in Columbia, Missouri doing Public Information.

I developed a passion for blogging while I was in school and started my first blog back in 2014 called ContemporaryTeal. After getting lost in the blogosphere sauce, that blog failed due to me trying to do way too many things with it (fashion, music, trend-alerts, interviews…you name it!). Once I took a break and re-branded, Shades of Chelsea was born.


Shades of Chelsea started out as solely a personal style blog, but since then, my love of helping other creatives has taken over. After realizing what worked, I started creating content geared toward the hard-working creative who just needs that extra push to stay focused. I still love sharing my personal style, which you can find in my outfit index here, where I post a new outfit weekly.

A couple of my favorite posts for creatives are: 5 Definite Reasons You Are Feeling Uninspired + 3 Ways To Always Have Time For Your Creative Passions.

By embracing the shades of who you are, you learn to love yourself like no other.

And there you have it, a little back-story to the Shades of Chelsea blog! Before I go, I want to invite you to join the S.O.C (Shades of Chelsea) Crew email list! I send weekly tips and words of inspiration, as well as the latest news relating to my new e-books, e-courses, ect. Fill out the form at the bottom of this page to subscribe and be a crew member!
