Jeanne Chan - Shop Sweet Things

Hello, I’m Jeanne Chan, founder and voice behind the lifestyle blog, Shop Sweet Things. I launched this blog in 2011 to share my passion in shopping and to discover simple luxuries in fashion and home. It has now expanded to my other personal interests including beauty, food, motherhood, and local spots in my city, San Francisco.

I find great joy in sharing tasteful finds and inspiring others to live a good life. Perhaps this reflects my background in working in luxury retail and interiors prior to my blog. My aesthetic is mostly modern, upbeat, and on trend – with a great appreciation for classics!

As a tastemaker, I have partnered with many companies, small and big, from creating gift guides to curating collections. These include lifestyle magazines, online shops, social shopping sites and lifestyle mobile apps. I’ve also been honor to be featured in Refinery29, Huffington Post, MyDomaine, MotherGlitter Guide, Rue Magazine, and many others. On an influencer level, I also partner with established and independent brands on exclusive content, social media campaigns, and events. All of my partnerships are brands I value in taste as well as a match to my lifestyle.

I love connecting on social media and am constantly attached to my iPhone! You can find me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat. You would also find me at industry events often as I love to network, support my community, and get inspired by those around me.

I am happily married to my husband and love spending time with my two lovely girls. You will see them here from time to time as they are a big part of my life! I am from Hong Kong originally and miss it dearly. But I have lived in San Francisco for over 25 years and couldn’t be more proud to be a local in this growing and diverse city.

If you’ve already made your way here, please feel free to introduce yourself and comment. If there is anything you want me to share, or simply just want to say hi, please email me at jeanne@shopsweetthings.com. Thank you so much again for stopping by! – Jeanne

  • Miriam

    Hi Jeanne,
    I stumbled over your blog through Steffi’s blog ohhhmhhh.de . I land on your homepage and feel instantly drawn to everything. Love the layout and style. I’m almost overwhelmed, because I’m excited to have found this and don’t know where to click first. I’ll calm down, get some work done and will be back later to indulge. Oh…and San Francisco is so wonderful. I haven’t been in years. I need to visit again (I’m not even that far in L.A.).



    • I’m so flattered, Miriam! And welcome to my blog! If you’re ever in SF, let me know. Would love to share some of my favorite spots with you! Talk soon!

    Hi Jeanne, my name is Marjorie. I am from the beautiful city of Montreal, in Canada. I fell upon your blog while reading an article on the Refinery 29. I love how you incorporated your lifestyle with fashion. I used to blog and am currently facing the biggest inspiration blockage ever. I really want to get back to it but have issues starting all over again. I know that I will get back to it. Your blog inspired me let go of my fears and just start.



    • Hi Marjorie, thank you so much for stopping by. I’m so flattered by your words and am so glad I can be an inspiration to you. I know how daunting it is to start over, but once you get the momentum back it will be a lot of fun!

      I was in Montreal last year and LOVED it! Many thanks again for your comment and please stay in touch!

      Very best,
