Holiday Pop-Up with Norton + Hodges at Hotel Trundle

This week, I co-hosted a pop-up at Hotel Trundle (one of my favorite spots in all of Colatown) with Charleston-based Norton and Hodges, a luxury accessories brand that’s handcrafted in and inspired by Africa. I met the owner, Suzette, like I do with most other small brands– on Instagram! She invited me to her studio above Broad […]

SHOP Shades of Pinck // The what, the why + the how!

If you follow me on IG then you know I’ve been pushing the launch of something I’ve been working really hard on for the past few months: www.SHOPshadesofpinck.com I’ve shared that it is happening, but I haven’t given very much information on what it really is or why I decided to start it, so I […]

Setting the Thanksgiving table with VIETRI

For the first time ever, I’m going to be hosting Thanksgiving Dinner…which is both scary and exciting all at once! I’ve made countless phone calls to the women in my family, asking for advice, finalizing the menu, and asking for them to all make that one dish that they make better than everyone else (…so […]

Triple Crown? // Steeplechase of Charleston

Is there a triple crown for attending three horse functions in one year? If so, I think I deserve it for my appearances at the Carolina Cup in Camden this past spring, the Veuve Clicquot Polo Match right outside of NYC this past summer, and the Steeplechase of Charleston this past weekend! It was my […]

Dinner in the heart of Charleston // Gabrielle’s Fall Menu

Last week I had the pleasure of dinning under the stars in the heart of Charleston at Hotel Bennett’s restaurant Gabrielle. The weather was perfect, the conversation with some of my favorite Charlestonians was motivating, and the food was simply amazing. It was truly a memorable evening! Gabrielle, under the direction of Chef Michael Sichel, recently […]

Welcoming Fall! // Apple picking

When we returned home from our trip to Egypt, we were welcomed with slightly cooler temperatures and a whole lot less humidity. That’s right– it’s finally starting to feel like Fall in the South and I, for one, couldn’t be happier! While I love summertime, it’s hard to resist the time of year that reminds […]

“Clean” beauty products I’ve been living by // Pinck Picks

Lately, I’ve been making an effort to transition to using more “clean” beauty products– I have to use the quotations because I can only trust that these products are actually natural as I haven’t personally tested their ingredients. I’ve gotten rid of products that I’ve been using (some for almost a decade) and replaced them with […]

Safari Suite Reveal + 5 tips for making a guest feel at home

I love when friends + family come visit us! One of the (only) perks of living in a different city than the people you’re closest to is that when they do come they tend to spend the weekend. For the longest, our guest room was pathetic. Not because there weren’t nice, comfortable pieces in it, […]

5 steps to a French picnic // Super simple crab dip

From fashion and entertaining, to food + wine, the French know style! It’s no wonder the rest of the world is constantly trying to keep up. The summer heat in South Carolina has peaked and become down right unbearable, however I escape to the cool hills of Provence, France– if only in my mind–every time […]

Summer Soirée // Afternoon lunch for 4

I can’t believe we’re already at the end of July. Before you know it the thick, sticky air will fade into cooler fall nights and there will be no more lake days, or late sunsets. But before those days arrive, I’m making it a point to take full advantage of the season. And the best […]
