Meet the Member: Maggie O’Gara

Hi! My name is Maggie O’Gara and I am an actor and lifestyle blogger.  I run a blog called Maggie O Prep, that is focused on classic, preppy lifestyle.  My blog focuses on style, books, travel, and lifestyle but I love to a little bit of everything! The main focus is style of every kind: dress, home, and life!  Life is to short to not live as stylishly as possible.

When did you start blogging and what inspired you to start you blog?

I started my blog my junior year in college as a fun, creative outlet to share my love and expertise of style and shopping.  Now over three years later is has become a side hustle and something I would love to take on full time while I pursue acting.  I love that I have created a place to share my changing style and hope that it inspires people to celebrate their style

What is your favorite blog post that you have written?

At the end of the summer last year I did a post on everything you need if you’re travelling to St. Louis. I’m from there so I’m an expert on all things STL.  I’m going to be doing one for Chicago this summer and I can’t wait! I love travel.

What do you love about blogging?

When it comes to blogging I love all that I’ve gotten to do through it.  I’ve had some amazing experiences and met some amazing people that I wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise.  I also love that it is a space that is totally mine where I can share what I find beautiful, stylish, and fun in this world.  I want my blog to be a shining ray of positivity for everyone.

What are some brands that you have worked with, or some brands that you would love to work with?

I’ve worked with some great brands (JORD, Clorox, Seventh Generation) in the past year.  Since the main focus of my blog is preppy style, I would love to work with brands that are focused on that lifestyle.  J.Crew (which is what half of my closet is) is a dream collaboration of mine!
