Spring Cleaning & A Time For Change

change not chance

After trying to figure out what fires me up and doing a lot of professional & personal reflection, I have decided a little “online” spring cleaning is necessary. This Friday will mark the TWO year anniversary of The Preppy Chic Blog & the launch of my event planning company Preppy Chic Events. Over the past two years, the […]

Wednesday Words: Things That Fire Me Up

what fires me up (3-13)

I’m so sad that I couldn’t make it to Making Things Happen 2013, which starts today. Last year, this program changed my life, my company and my vision of the future. It really gave me the opportunity to dig deep and reflect upon what I want and how to get there. In one of the exercises, […]

One of the best parts about being an event planner is helping my clients come up with fun ideas & designs for their event and then watching the vision come alive! Bar Mitzvahs are so much fun because they’re usually themed, full of personality and have lots of room for creativity with the goal of […]

Wednesday Words: Creating Momentum


I can’t believe February 2013 is almost over! The year is flying by so quickly! I also can’t believe it’s been almost 2 years (this March) from when I started this blog. What started off as a place to showcase wedding inspiration & real events and other random stuff about me and my company has […]

Mint + Gold

I tried to resist, but mint (seafoam) whatever you want to call it, keeps appearing in front of me and I am in love. This weekend I ran across this tote at Lululemon and just had to buy it! It had mint striped lining & grey straps {the instagram photo doesn’t do it justice} along […]


where to go

The last week in LA has been gorgeous, but now the rain has finally arrived. Sitting inside when it’s cold and rainy makes me want to travel to someplace tropical and warm. In 2013 I decided that I missed traveling and I wanted to do more of it. I used to be a management consultant, […]

I love this infographic created by Wedding Paper Divas on recent engagement statistics. Did you just get engaged? Check out how you compare to other engaged couples. As a recent engaged woman, I am definitely in the 74% majority of couples who at some point said “let’s just elope”. What I thought was extremely interesting […]

Wednesday Words: Inspiration for a New Year & a New You

2013 a fresh start

I don’t believe in New Years Resolutions. Mainly because I feel like I’m setting myself up for failure. No one wants to fail right? Instead, I make decisions to try harder, do better, take action and strive to be the best me I can be every day. {via etsy} Although I don’t make resolutions, there […]

2013… Let’s Do This!

2013 let's do this

Happy New Year’s Eve!!! It’s been a crazy, fast & interesting 2012. There were sadly more downs than ups (especially with the passing of my grandpa). I can’t wait for 2012 to be over because I know 2013 is going to be an amazing year (because I’m getting married)!!!  Cheers to 2012 being over (& […]
