Shyema is a beauty writer and food-enthusiast who grew up in Chicago, IL, and currently resides in New York, NY. By day, she’s a freelance magazine editor hopping between Marie Claire, Allure, and Harper’s Bazaar, and by night she muses on her latest beauty finds and restaurant adventures on her blog, Beauty and the Feast ( People often ask her what’s the weirdest thing she’s ever eaten, and she will tell you that she used to eat (and quite like) goat’s tongue with her bagels growing up (it’s called ‘nehari’ and that variation is a specialty dish of Hyderabad, India, where her parents are from). She feels sick thinking about eating it now though. You can find her tweeting about her latest beauty finds, restaurant adventures, the Chicago Bulls, and quotes from her little Indian mother at @BeautyNDFeast.
