Shel

Hi!

I’m Shel, the geeky baker behind Sweet Petite  🙂

I live just outside Newcastle upon Tyne, UK…

…that’s Gateshead to anyone local! I was born in Newcastle though so I am a proper Geordie!

I live with my husband Geoff and our crazy cat Gracie…

…we have no plans for babies but instead wish to travel the globe; even though I have a teeny tiny fear of flying (and a distinct lack of funds!) but we’re not going to let that stand in the way!

I’m a TV/Film Addict…

…it’s a wonder I haven’t got square eyes! 80s movies and Scandi TV dramas rank top of my list but I’ll pretty much watch anything! I draw the line at X-factor and TOWIE though!

I’m ever-so slightly obsessed with America…

…pickup trucks, diners, accents, front porches, greyhound buses, country music, you name it!

And also Scandinavia…

…knitted patterned jumpers, IKEA, Arne Jacobsen chairs, Lars and Mads Mikkelsen, Tuborg beer and Hygge!

Other loves…

…cats, tattoos, Christmas, art deco, cheesy rock music and tweeting!

I NEVER wear matching socks…

…life is just too short!!
