A Little Sharpie Update

  Preface: If you didn't see my origial Craft Preppy for the Sharpie DIY you might want to look back at that now.

  I did the Sharpie DIY again for Christmas presents and I wanted to share it with you!

Here's what I did:

For every mug I wrote the person's name or favorite quote.

For my cousin Ceci I did arrows around the top and bottom of the mug and on the handle because she's a perfectionist.  :)

  For Amanda, I did a New York themed mug mixed with a few basic pattern elements.  This one is probably my favorite!  I tried to incorporate the skyline, the subway signs, and art deco!

  Finally, for my aunt I did a mug with the quote "Haters are my motivators".  For her entire trip she said this every other phrase.  Hers also has hearts on the handle!

  That's it for now!  Believe it or not, I'm actually off to Chicago right now.  More later!

Love and Stay Preppy,

My Chicago Adventure

I seriously love Chicago.  I mean seriously, a city that has more than one of multiple stores?  More than one Macy's, more than one Zara, the list goes on.  So here's my adventure.


 We stayed at the DoubleTree Chicago- Magnificent Mile, on the 17th floor.  If you're ever staying in a big city make sure you get a room on the top floor!  The view is amazing!

 As soon as we arrived we walked around the city.  Unfortunately I didn't have my camera the first night, so yes, I broke Blogger Rule #1: Never go anywhere without your camera.  Here are some pictures from the next day!  The Burberry building was PLAID!

  We saw one of the coolest Targets ever and any city that has a street named after Bob Fosse is okay with me!

  After walking around a little bit we headed over to Magnolia Bakery to meet a friend, then to Ballet Chicago for an audition!

  The next day we headed over to Navy Pier, which was unfortunately closed for construction.

  After the Navy Pier we of course headed over to the infamous Millenium Park!

  Of course we stopped by The Bean!  Try to find me in every picture!

  We walked past Joffrey a few times, and I had to get a picture!

  We walked past Trump Tower a few times and I didn't realize how tall it actually is!

  Chicago has some really interesting architecture!

  That's all for now!  Keep your eyes open for my Christmas haul and birthday haul which will come out in a few weeks!

Love and Stay Preppy,
