My name is Shali. I was born and raised in Colombo, Sri Lankan and now live in Palmerston North, New Zealand, where I am raising my family. I LOVE books, I also enjoy good movies, binge-watching TV series (when time permits) and I have also recently started to dabble in Photography. Other than this, just like most people, I love to travel with my family whenever possible; be it in my own back yard or visiting someone else’s.

I am a freelance writer and blogger, and have worked with clients from various industries. I also develop content for websites and social media platforms as well as copy write for press releases, collateral etc. I have worked in the marketing field for a range of companies in various industries including aviation and hospitality, education and e-commerce.

This blog is my creative outlet and I will be writing about people, places, and things that I think are interesting. It is also a place for client articles whenever I get the change to work with businesses and entrepreneurs who also capture my attention. My hope is that you will find them fascinating too.

So welcome to my wee blog I settled on this name as Hush Puppies are a well-known comfort shoe, suitable for doing life in i.e. working, playing, walking traveling, etc. And that is what the articles are all about – life.

Thank you for visiting this blog, I really appreciate your support.
