ShicShanghai was created by Sarah Sabbagh and Paul Hickey, two bloggers with a passion for changing the way we see the ever-changing world of Shanghai. With a combined history of luxury brands, fashion styling, editorial and blogging across 3 continents, we wanted to create a bilingual space for people to discover the treasures of Shanghai. is a luxury fashion, food and lifestyle destination that introduces our readers to the best that Shanghai has to offer. Everything on-site is a personal recommendation. We would never promote something we don’t love.

We want our readers to really understand the need to Do.Epic.Shic. Giving everyone the chance to make their day-to-day lives that little bit chicer.

We provide a variety of creative and business freelance services to make your day-to-day life easier. Not everyone enjoys the marketing/PR/advertising side of business needed to position their brand as a leader within its industry. Luckily for you, we dig that stuff. Our specialities include:

  • Copywriting – from blog posts to SEO-rich web content or press releases!
  • Social media strategy & consulting
  • Brand development and analysis
  • Community management – because I’m a realist, and I know not everyone is as obsessed with maintaining social media platforms as I am.
  • Public relations
