Cozy Sweater Wine Wrap

I’m the queen of procrastination, especially during the holiday season! So in order to prevent the last minute speeding to the store, half-hazardly throwing something together, and arriving to the holiday party slightly out of breath, I’ve decided to prepare BEFORE the day of the holiday party. I’ve seen adorable recycled sweater wrapped wine bottles… Read more »

Not to be a jerk…

  …but seriously???? Miley Cyrus on the August cover of ELLE is a little preposterous.  Don’t get me wrong…I’m totally Team Miley. Love Hanna Montana. Lover her jams. Yet, to be honest, her serious teeny bopping face on the cover of ELLE kind of weirded me out. I mean, come on, SHE”S SIXTEEN. The fact that… Read more »

Better than a Pet Rock. They’re EcoSpheres!

Between work & play, family & friends, who has the time to take care of a pet? Dogs drool and cats scratch. Fish die and gerbils smell. Despite all of that, I yearn for a little creature of my own to have and to hold. Something that loves me unconditionally and cheers me up when… Read more »

Skellramics

I know it’s kinda weird but I have a strange obsession with skulls and skeleton-related things. Wait, let me elaborate a little before y’all think I’m some sort of Satan worshipper.

False Advertisement

Grrr…I am mad. This is not a post to rave about a cool nail polish or get excited over a new type of cheese. This is a rant. Everyday, when 4pm rolls around, I need a pick-me-up, preferably in the form of SUGAR. I cannot continue my day without a cookie, candy, or handful of Flipz…. Read more »

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
