About Us

Styled to Sparkle is a lifestyle philosophy. Our focus is on life and style for the real girl. It isn’t about being every girl – it’s about being true to who you are. We believe that happiness is the most important thing in life and that is what truly makes you sparkle.

Who is the “Real Girl”?

She’s a girl who loves to shop, eat and travel. She loves wine, bubbles and custom cocktails – and of course dinner dates to both her favorite restaurants and trendy new spots. She loves sports, music, her dog, spending time with her man and cheering on her favorite pro-sports team. Her style is casual and her daily uniform almost always includes jeans. She’s a shopaholic but hates to pay full price for anything – she’s always looking for a great deal on the designer goods that she loves. She loves classic, feminine styles and believes you can never have too many pairs of shoes or tubes of lipgloss. This girl loves to travel and explore the world – to eat, shop and immerse herself in local culture. Her perfect vacation is a weekend getaway to the mountains, relaxing on the beach doing nothing or seeing multiple cities in a week!

Meet Our Founder & Editor-in-Chief

Carlee founded Styled to Sparkle in 2015 as a result of numerous requests from clients, friends, and family for travel and restaurant recommendations, fashion and beauty tips and numerous other subjects. It has since grown into a wide-reaching platform for Shopping Guides, Lifestyle trends, beauty product reviews, and so much more.

Carlee has a Bachelor of Commerce from Athabasca University and spent the last twelve years working in the energy and technology sectors of the corporate world in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. While that was fulfilling and fruitful (she did find a husband there after all!) she felt like a sense of purpose was missing. She set out on her own to pursue her creative passion, and after many months Styled to Sparkle was born.

Carlee has always enjoyed fine wine, especially paired appropriately with good food! Those closest to her have always relied on her knowledge and experience as a trained Sommelier. One day she hopes to become a Master Sommelier.

Carlee currently resides in Calgary, Canada with her husband, and their Cockapoo named Hattie. She is an avid hockey fan and an active women’s league hockey player.
