Paducah Economic Development congratulates Kathryn Byers on the relaunch of her lifestyle blog, Chic & Shimmer.

Kathryn started her blog during college after she realized she wasn’t completely fulfilled with her studies and wanted a creative outlet. She launched Chic & Shimmer to share her creativity and love for fashion with others.

“I took a year away from Chic & Shimmer to submerge myself into my new career in finance. I don’t regret taking that time for myself and my career but again, I wasn’t feeling completely fulfilled without it. I was both nervous and excited to start again. Now that I’m back in the swing of things, I’m elated with my decision.”

The community gathered to celebrate the relaunch of Chic & Shimmer Monday, June 4 at the 1857 Hotel with festive decor, sweet eats and Champagne toasts. 

“Chic & Shimmer is a creative corner that celebrates everything there is to love about life. I touch on everything from fashion to fitness to home décor. I’m a firm believer that when you look good, you feel good. There’s always a little something to celebrate in every day. Let’s toast to that together!”
