HI.

I’m Jackie, founder of Morning Kawa Styled and I am so excited to show you how to live beautifully on a budget! I believe that all it takes is someone helping you find the right ingredients to make a lasting impression.

Most of my learnings that I share with my clients stem from my twenties when I lived in NYC. I was an event planner for some of the city’s rich and famous. My client list included Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang, Martha Stewart, Anna Wintour, and of course, some of the wealthiest in New York you may not know by name.

One of my clients held the largest private art collection in the world and I spent my 21st birthday in his Central Park townhome pretending it was normal to look at original van Gogh paintings in a living room.

I remember picking up a million dollar check that was to be used for a wedding I was planning and thinking, WTH am I doing here? I’ve taken the Jitney to my client’s mansions in the Hamptons for backyard soirees and I’ve rubbed shoulders with celebrities while planning THE Met Gala. For this job, I was required to wear a black dress with heels and manicured nails.

 This is the only picture I have of myself in a black dress at a NYC celebrity wedding. Before selfies & probably taken with a disposable camera, too! Don’t judge :)

Was my little black dress designer? No way.

Did it matter? Not even a little bit. Even though my bank account had quite a few less zeros than my client’s, I surprisingly fit in with the crowd because I was shown how to pay attention to the details that do matter (like manicured nails).

Morning Kawa Styled is about focusing on the things that matter and that make an impact - thicker cardstock / a great font / candles/

It’s knowing where to spend, when to save and when it’s ok to splurge.

It’s mixing designer with private label. It’s balance. It’s understanding the HOW to leave a lasting impression.

And, oh, my dear, when all the pieces fall into place? (Take a deep breath… exhale… smile.) That’s harmony. THAT is when you make a lasting impression.

This balanced equation just lives in me. It’s in my blood. So much so that I honestly didn’t know that this was a unique skill. Finding that harmonic balance is my passion and I really can’t wait to work with you so that I can share my secrets. That, my lovelies, is why I founded Morning Kawa Styled. I want to give you all the tools you need to find that balance because I truly know that everyone can live beautifully on a budget if they are shown HOW.

Oh, and I bet you might be wondering how I got this dream job in the City in the first place? Well, it was quite simple. I sent a handwritten letter with a pretty stamp. Hired.

P.S. If you’re curious - Kawa - pronounced kaVa - is Polish for coffee as some of you long time followers may remember from that time I lived in Poland :)
