From Angella Sprauve, Founder of Auvê Daily

Auvê (pronounced Auu-vaay) Daily is an online destination for sophisticated content on beauty and Bay Area lifestyle, from easy luxury to what’s hip and cool.  We offer a 360-degree view beauty that includes local beauty news, healthy lifestyle, social events, travel and unique individuals of the Bay Area.

Lots of people ask, “what does Auvê mean?”  The name Auvê comes on my last name, Sprauve, and has roots in the U.S. Virgin Islands. To me, Auvê represents a diverse and abundant lifestyle. Coming from a very eclectic background myself, I appreciate one of the most unique gems of the Bay Area is its diversity.  I spent years enjoying everything that San Francisco has to offer as luxury lifestyle writer, cosmetic chemist and product development manager in the beauty industry.  I’ve worked on brands like Bath and Body Works, Yes to Carrots, Bare Escentuals and many more in my career.  So needless to say, outer beauty is very familiar to me.

But real beauty comes from enjoying a full life. The Bay Area has so much to offer, and Auvê is the lifestyle that I hope everyone will find in this site. I curate much of the content, and with the help of expert friends and special contributors, we want to bring you a little burst of beauty each day.
