Hi! I’m Callie, creator of this here blog, Hot Pink and Glitter! I hope we are going to be besties so I figure I should start by telling you a little about me!

I love to travel and see new places and try new foods and meet new people and take pictures. I have experienced first-hand the life-changing experience that is travel and immersion into another culture. I envision a world where travel and experiences are available to people of all ages, backgrounds, sizes and genders. I promise to share my experiences honestly and authentically, in hopes of helping other women travel confidently.

I love glitter and sparkle and things that make me smile. I believe that getting dressed can be an act of self love, whether that’s in the coziest PJs you own or the fiercest runway-ready ensemble. I think this kind of fashion, the kind that makes us feel like our truest, happiest, most authentic selves, is something that every person deserves. I promise to be candid in my review of styles and share if I believe they are inclusive.

I think cheese and churros deserve their own food groups and La Croix, champagne, and coffee are basically the only liquids I need to survive.

I left my decade-long career in luxury goods in 2017 to work full-time running my social boutique and blog. After working for amazing companies like Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Chloe, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton, I decided that it was time to move on and share my passion for fashion and experiences in a way that included as many people as possible.

I’m a fifth generation native Californian and I have lived in San Francisco, Las Vegas, San Diego, Trinidad + Tobago, Paris, and Palm Springs. I am back living in sunny Southern California with my husband.

Oh, and why Hot Pink and Glitter? Well glitter is my favorite color, and hot pink is my second favorite. It’s pretty much that simple. I believe there is power in connecting with the simple things that bring you joy, and the fact of the matter is, glitter has made me happy since I was a little girl, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.

Ok enough about me! I would love to hear more about YOU! Tell me something in the comments, or feel free to ask me any question! I would also love to have you hang with me on Instagram!
