I’ve been a crafter, baker and party enthusiast since I was a child. While in school, I took every art, welding, crafting, baking and home economics class I possibly could and eventually made a career out of it! If you’ve browsed the site, I’m sure you can tell I’m enamored with entertaining and sharing sweet recipes, inspiring parties and unique entertaining ideas with you all. Adding charm to the daily life is our passion!


I’m a native Californian with a deep admiration for this beautiful state. I moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18, graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Home Economics and started Sugar and Charm one month after graduation. In 2012, I had the honor of becoming an affiliate with A&E’s Lifetime Moms, where I was chosen to be one of the first hosts of a Lifetime Moms-branded video series on entertaining, crafting and baking.



In 2008 I married my video producing husband, Zan (Madcitizen), and together we’ve created video series for brands such as Pier 1, General Mills, TollHouse, Lifetime and FYI Network. Our greatest creation though was our two wonderful little boys, Romeo and Monroe! We live in Los Angeles, raising our kids while running our companies!



Sugar and Charm is an entertaining destination sharing sweet recipes, hosting inspiration and easy ways to add charm to the daily life! From pool parties to hosting a charming Halloween movie night, we’re all about gathering with friends and family and of course doing it with charm!

Consecutively in 2012 and 2013, Sugar and Charm was named one
of the top 50 best craft and design blogs by Disney’s Babble. And in 2016 one of Domino’s top Entertaining blogs to follow!




Here are some of our favorite ways to add a little charm into your life! Host a charming charcuterie party, bake the best chocolate chip cookies ever, relax in the bath with a DIY bubble bath box, enjoy an apple cider Moscow Mule, organize your closet! Stay Charming!
