Has living in San Francisco helped inspire you to lead a glittery lifestyle?
I’ve lived here for over 20 years, and I appreciate this city more and more each year. I’ve never considered SF a metropolitan city before, but it surely is becoming just that. With the different mixes of people, unique shops, renowned restaurants, and amazing events happening all around town, this city has developed a style and taste of its own. Watching the city grow and evolve has certainly inspired me to live a more glittery life!

“I’m a bit of hoarder for pretty trays and dishes. I love collecting them and think it’s the best way to add interest to any boring surface.

Where can you be found on the weekends?
You can find me strolling the streets in some of SF”s cutest neighborhoods like Noe Valley and Hayes Valley. I also love to brunch, so you can either find me at my favorite brunch spots like Zazie, Eats and La Boulange, or the mom n’ pops breakfast places…they’re always so friendly and welcoming!

How do you sparkle?
Aside from wearing my favorite sparkle necklaces and lipstick, I think what makes me sparkle the most is being a loving mom and wife, being nice to people, and giving my best smile!
