Hello and welcome! I'm Michal Shaina and I've been blogging here since the Autumn of 2010. North Country Girl is my scrapbook for inspiration, writing endeavors, personal experiences and my love for vintage fashion. I live in the beautiful community of Keene, New Hampshire and you can often find me sipping strong black coffee, playing piano or enjoying good conversation. I have been diagnosed with a severe case of wanderlust and I am always planning my next adventure. I'm fascinated with strangers, linguistics and the ways in which we relate to one another. I am known to over-think everything and spend too much time daydreaming. I'm so glad you stopped by, and I would love to hear from you. I am not accepting sponsors at the time, but I may be available for product reviews and I am willing to work with small companies whose principles are compatible with my views.
