Hello and welcome to SHENSKA! My name is Paulina and I am a Napa Valley based life & style blogger. Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been drawn to images and storytelling, so that’s how this blog eventually came to be! I approach writing and creating content with an honest, down-to-earth attitude and I love sharing a little bit of everything that relates to millennial lifestyle.
Many people wonder where the name Shenska came from. When starting this blog, I wanted it to be something personal, unique and to resemble who I am (a Polish girl living in America). It only made sense to merge two words from both countries I love! For some reason, I always loved the word: shenanigans. I think it’s because it sounds a little bit like my Polish last name: Szczepanska (which Americans always have fun pronouncing 😉 ). The SKA suffix in my name is also very common and historically important for Polish heritage, so I really wanted to honor that.
Playing with both of these words: shenanigans and Szczepanska, I got Shenska!
