Upcycled Hardware Vases

I’m hooked on Perrier sparkling water. For me, it has little to do with the water itself, and much to do with this gorgeous green glass bottles it comes in. I have trouble throwing the bottles away because I always think “I should make something out of these.” So this past weekend I finally fulfilled… Read more »

Caramel Apple Cheesecake

Cheesecake is my all time favorite dessert. However, making cheesecake is really difficult for most. That’s why we have a bit of a Cheesecake “cheater” recipe that’ll fulfill your cheesecake craving without the hassle of making it from scratch.

Fridge Facelift

Ever since I moved into my apartment last summer, I have had a resentment towards the dingy, old and unappealing piece of machinery that acts as our refrigerator.

Cozy Sweater Wine Wrap

About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”.

Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
