My Story


My name is DeeAnne White, and I’m a former Fortune50 Executive Vice President, author, intrepid traveller, gastronome and lover of cricket, wine, jazz, Jimmy Choos and life.

I’m also just a girl, who was born in Dallas, and who’s been everything from a young wife and stay at home parent, to a busy single mother beginning her career in Orange County, California, to one of the few women to who was lucky enough to reach the top tier of the investment industry. I’m now an author and freelance writer, dividing my time between the US and the UK, learning as I go, and stumbling happily from one lovely day to the next.

Since leaving corporate America and living abroad, I’ve been learning French, relearning how to stay in one place for longer than a weekend, marrying a brilliant Englishman, writing my first novel, searching quite unsuccessfully for my inner Julia Child, making room in the wardrobe for a pair of Wellies to sit alongside the Christian Louboutins and dreaming of living in a tiny French village someday.

While I’d never assume that my philosophy would suit everyone, I’m often asked how I remain an eternal optimist and am able to enjoy life, no matter what my circumstances might be, so LiveCharmed was begun to humbly share how I try to look at life.

I believe that slow is much more elegant than fast, that everything happens for a reason, and that it’s always best to have chilled Champagne on hand, because you never know when there might be something to celebrate.
