Picnicking Around Cola // Hotel Trundle Experience

Even as COVID cases continue to rise, more and more people are beginning to feel COVID fatigue and are growing tired of the restrictions that have been put on us. While it’s important we find ways to make life feel normal, it’s still incredibly important to social distance + wear a mask! One of the […]

Voter’s Registration // South Carolina Democratic Presidential Primary Election

Its hard to believe that we’re already in 2020! With the Olympic Games, the Census, and the Presidential Election all happening over the next 12 months we’re sure to be overloaded with statistics, facts + general information. With so much to keep up with and with even more going on, there’s no wonder we can’t […]

FAMILY GAME NIGHT // A Cheerwine Summer

It is only a matter of weeks before school will resume and we’ll be back in the rut of homework + extra circular activity schedules! My fiancée’s boys have been hard at work this summer trying to complete their summer homework in between camp days + trips abroad. I’m honestly so proud of their hard […]

Freshe Poke // Huger Street

Late last year a new restaurant opened on Huger Street. And thanks to its crisp white exterior and massive street-front windows, I couldn’t help but notice it every single day I’d drive pass. But what was less obvious to me was what exactly they were offering. Almost immediately after exterior renovations were complete, the name of the […]

Party like its 1980-something!

This past week I attended my very first Free Times party…and it did not disappoint! Once a year the weekly publication compiles a “Best of Columbia” list awarding everything from the best liquor store to the best late night food spot. Winners are chosen based on the votes of average SodaCitizens and each year I’m introduced to […]

The celestial event of the year

For months all anyone in Colatown could talk about was The 2017 Eclipse. Actually it felt like as soon as 2017 began talks of how Columbia was one of the few “major cities” to be in the direct path of totality (and slated to have the longest period of darkness on the East coast) began to […]

How sweet it is!

Over the weekend, Gamecock men’s AND women’s basketball teams advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16! While we have come to expect that from our Lady Gamecocks, this is the very first time in school history that our men’s team has danced into the coveted spot! And to top it off, they beat Duke (of all […]

Dinner at Dracula’s castle // Gala SZN

You can expect one thing from Halloweekend every year…the Columbia City Ballet will perform their hit original ballet, Dracula! This year, following the Friday night performance at the Koger Center, the company hosted a fundraising black-tie gala next door at the newly built Darla Moore School of Business. Guests left the performance and walked straight […]

Some days are just more fabulous than others!

Trying to figure out how this super average Thursday turned into one helluva way to kick off November! Way earlier this morning, I did my very first style segment for Columbia’s WACH Fox News–thanks to my friend and anchor, Destiny Chance! I showed three stylish outfits options for this weekend’s Homecoming game. The first look was […]

The best Halloween glam I’ve ever had!

I absolutely love Halloween!! I live for excuses to get dressed up and be around people that are obsessing over their outfit as much as I am. Halloween is that night, except on steroids because it allows –no encourages– everyone to go as over the top as they possibly can! Every year I tell myself I’m […]
