We had the good fortune of connecting with Shalean LaBerge Stephanie Ghitis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Shalean LaBerge, what do you attribute your success to?
One major aspect of Soflofooodie has always been to remain original. We have a large focus on creating content that we have not yet seen. Even if that means doing something trendy but with our own twist. We want our space to be a place our audience can see unique, fun and different content. We share our recipes with the community and encourage others to make them too. Much of our success revolves around our ability to work closely with brands but also create our own original products.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
We started Soflofooodie about 5 years ago and never expected it to become such a big part of who we are today. We always remain humble and celebrate every milestone accomplished. It is important for us to show our audience we love what we do and are grateful for all of the support given to us. We are proud to have created an item that went worldwide viral and landed us on the news and many other major publications. Seeing so many individuals from all over the world take interest in our work was truly inspiring to experience.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
South Florida is of course known for beautiful beaches so, a day at the beach would definitely be on the agenda. Checking out creative spots like Wynwood. Enjoying a day trip to the keys. In the food world, Miami is such a big hot spot it would be hard to pick just a few spots but definitely grab some tacos at Bodega, Ice cream at Midtown Creamery, and a nice lunch in the back patio at Cream Parlor!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We have built many relationships throughout this career and wouldn’t be where we are without those relationships. Every individual, establishment, and brand that has believed in our creative work has played an important role in our success!
