I’m Samantha Du Quan, founder and voice behind the urban family lifestyle blog, The Hip Kid. I fell in love with San Francisco [my home] when I was 2 which makes me always and forever a city girl. Then 9 years later, I fell in love with my wonderful husband, Bradley at summer camp. [True story: I told my BFF that I was going to marry this guy as soon as I spotted him] 22 years after that, I fell in love with the most incredible, fun-loving, affectionate, inquisitive, spunky, and curious little guy, Taye [my little peanut]. I obsess about most things in my life but he has definitely taken over my heart. Being his mom has been one of the most rewarding things ever. I strive to create a non-conventional and super abnormal world for him to grow and explore in. As a family we love getting out doors and enjoying all the amazing things SF has to offer. Even as natives to the city we still feel like there is so much to see and do.
For most of my life I worked in fashion [most recently being a buyer for a major clothing company] but once I started my little family I decided to leave that world but my heart didn’t go very far. I am still very attached to all things creative and unique. I launched THK in 2013 to chronicle my daily adventures with my little family who are my world. This space also allows me to share every day loves that I discover like fashion, worthy products, easy family recipes, DIYs, new music and all things San Francisco.
I’m so glad you found me and thank you kindly for stopping by the Hip Kid!
