Karen Silas

Senior Lifestyle Editor

I'm a Senior Lifestyle Editor and avid bargain shopper with more than 20 years of editorial experience in the celebrity, lifestyle, homes, beauty and fashion spheres, including my latest role as one of HELLO! Online's resident shopping experts since 2020.

My "A to Z" is Amazon to Zara Home - and if you've heard of a trending product, from a celebrity fave to a game-changer home buy, there's a good chance I'm thinking about adding it to basket if I haven't already.

I'm passionate about home decor - home makeover shows are my kryptonite - and whether you're looking to shop budget-friendly lookalikes of trending looks, designer finds on sale or TikTok's newest *fire emoji* viral buys, I am an expert who'll be able to tell you what to shop now – and where – not to mention the best deals around.

While my 9-5 is covering the latest shopping trends, my spare time isn't just about shopping. I also love discovering beautiful places, cooking without following the recipe and falling asleep to murder shows.

A Seattle-area native and middle child with a Masters Degree from the University of Washington (Go Huskies!), I currently reside in Madrid, Spain with my husband, teen son and rescue cats, Lotta and Pixie.
