A few of my favorite Preppy Things!

Hello Preps! I hope this blog finds you all happy and smiling.

Yesterday was Husbands birthday. Let's put it this way, I ordered take out, his new monogrammed cooler did not arrive, and I had my assistant pick up his cake from the grocery store. The day ended with my beautiful 9 year old in tears and me giving it to the birthday boy (and not in a good way).

Today however, I want to share a few of my favorite preppy things!

My new WALLPAPER

I'm also wearing my new Kate Spade shoes, Tory Burch sweater and blouse from J. Crew.  The wallpaper will be displayed on an entirely other post as Barrie, my decorator, deserves better than this picture.

I've been wearing my sketcher shapes up shoes for 3 weeks officially. I think I found a new muscle in my bottom area-I'll keep you posted. Too soon to tell.

However, I've also been drinking MONA-VIE for 3 weeks and let me tell you this stuff works! click here to learn more about it. I need less sleep, I look better in the morning (less scary), and have more energy.

Lunch meeting today at Starbucks, excited to see if they've launched any new fun drinks! Let me know what I should get.

One week from today I am getting a behind the scenes tour of Lilly Pulitzer. I am SO EXCITED! I'm pink and green with what to wear. I promise to take pictures and plan to test drive the golf cart as that is what I've asked for as my birthday present. My son even wants it and he is allergic to pink.

For my party in March I'll be ordering pink and green cupcakes from Philly Cupcake! check them out!

Love you all!

  2. I'm sorry your day was so horrible :(
    It seems that those days we want to be so very perfect always end up not being that way.

    I loved talking with you on the phone the other day and CANNOT wait til we get together and play! I'll keep you posted on that front too...

    I think your new wallpaper is spectacular and smiled to see how well your outfit matched it!

  3. I'm thinking it must be a full moon or something out there this week myself.
    Your wallpaper is fabulous just like YOU!!
    Love the outfit as well.

    Hope you have a great rest of the week!! Can't wait to hear about the Lilly tour!

  4. Your super cute outfit distracted me from the wallpaer at first, but it is divine. Stunning pic of you, very regal & the splash of red adds just the perfect bit of whimsy. (still very jealous of that flawless skin of yours. You glow.)

  5. Love the new wallpaper (and your shoes are smashing!) This week has been frustrating for a lot of people. So jealous of your behind the scenes at Lilly!! What fun!

  6. how adorable are you in the coordinated blouse and shoes!

    Dadley is a fan of Monavie, go you on getting on that bandwagon and hopefully once the cooler arrives you can do Husband's Birthday 2.0 to clean the slate!

    xoox

  7. Adorable shoes, fab wallpaper and I love that you have an assistant!!! Fab!

    Thanks for posting about Mona Vie... will have to see if I can get it on island! Have you tried Kombucha yet? I think it's a similar type of drink, but pricey (at least it is here) and kind of fizzy. Haven't had much of it yet... takes a little getting used to taste-wise. xo

  41. Love all your pretty new duds & your wallpaper. I think it's fantastic that you start each morning w/ a fresh, happy outlook - stay positive. Legal messes rarely get as messy as the people that want to start them threaten that they will.
