I’m an over 50 lifestyle blogger and YouTube vlogger — here’s my story!
I was a girl geek long before it was cool to carry that moniker. In 1981 I saw The Empire Strikes Back approximately 37 times in the movie theatre (hey, it was only $1.50) and I actually owned the Star Wars Movie LP (Geek Alert!)
In high school I was a theatre geek who had a thing for 80’s music and developed a love for everything pop culture. You seriously don’t want to play 80’s sitcom trivia with me as I’d beat your pants off.
My love of beauty products started at an early age when my mom sent me to school with blush at the age of 9 to make me look more rosy (I was a blonde Wednesday Addams). As an 80’s girl — Duran Duran, Boy George and Cyndi Lauper were my fashion icons. Today I’m addicted to Jeffree Star, Lush, Bath & Body Works, Tarte, Avon, Too Faced and Urban Decay.
My love for candles and holiday home decor started at an early age too! The colors, the scents — candles are a huge part of my life and during the holidays I go a bit crazy too with home decor!
I have over 15 years of professional experience working as a social media manager, community organizer, writer and team leader. I’ve worked for Village Voice Media, Squidoo (the lifestyle recommendation website founded by Seth Godin in 2005) and San Francisco dog startup Pack where I interviewed Dr. Pol, star of Nat Geo WILD’s No. 1 series “The Incredible Dr. Pol” and Dana Perino (and her dog Jasper)!
In my free time I can be found obsessing about Harry Potter…err, make that Severus Snape, pondering Dr. Who, assembling LEGO sets, listening to 80’s music, hanging out at the zoo with my family (we have a thing for cute furry creatures) and lurking in Lush, Sephora and HomeGoods.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
My motto: Don’t dream it – be it. (I borrowed that from a kinda famous movie).
