Welcome Friends!

Living the Glitter life is a blog dedicated to adding sparkle to your everyday life, whether it’s actual glitter (which will be permanently stuck to you, your significant other, your pets, and anyone who comes within 5 feet), or the kind of glitter you feel but don’t see. ♡

I’m Erin. I’m a professional Costume Designer and am the Girl Boss of the sparkly sequin brand, Glitter Fox. I have a BFA in Fashion Design from Otis College of Art + Design and am the Queen of Halloween.

My ♡’s:

  • Fashion - design, illustration, draping & sewing in my home studio (I’m also a glue gun ninja, so be warned)

  • Cooking & eating (but mostly eating…let’s be real)

  • Travel - sometimes luxury, sometimes budget, always adventure

  • DIY projects! [Most of which involve dragging my handy (and handsome) boyfriend Jeff into the chaos]

  • Organizing (OCD level 11)

  • My two ‘bears’, Vernie (9) and Rusty (11)…meow

  • The Muppets & anything related to Jim Henson

  • Living the Glitter Life in beautiful Encinitas, CA

I started this blog as a way to connect/share my interests, skills and projects with all of you lovely people & to give you a peek into my quirky & creative world. I hope to share things that will help or inspire you, and I’d love it if I could learn from and be inspired by from this community as well.

Join me on my adventures, make virtual friends and become a part of my tribe. ♡
