About

Emily Charron of Isn't That Charming

My name is Emily Charron and I’m a Michigan-native who lives, works, and plays in the skyscrapers of Chicago with my husband Doug and daughter Gracie.

By day I’m the Digital Engagement Manager at one of the world’s top brands, and by night I pen this blog as a creative outlet. Here, I share snapshots of my life, style, travels and creative pursuits.

Isn’t That Charming is aimed to empower women, brighten your day & leave inspired to live a charmed life.  If you’re a reader, I consider you a friend; please feel free to email me at isntthatcharming@gmail.com, or you can find me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Thank you so much for following along!
