About me


​Hi all! My name is Rebecca Stewart Szmidt & I am from Charleston, SC. I am married with a fur baby named Abbey. I work in the Medical IT field full-time and blog/gram on the side. I am 5'8" and around 135 lbs. I usually wear a 6-8 in bottoms and 2-4 in the tops. Pear Shaped & proud :) 


Some of my interests or hobbies include:

  • shopping (check out my Instagram for my looks & where I shop)

  • travel,

  • concerts,

  • family,

  • friends,

  • sweet wine,

  • blogging,

  • reading,

  • fashion/beauty trends

  • sharing great finds with others

I love to learn new things as well as share knowledge and great finds with others. I am not a professional writer or aspiring to be one; I just enjoy sharing with others. 


This blog is simply a place for me to share my thoughts and interests with others who may share them. I am new to blogging and am learning each day.  I am seriously obsessed with fun sunglasses. Therefore, I named my blog A Girl In Shades.
