An Ode to Guesthouse Charleston

My wedding was honestly a dream, but the one thing that didn’t feel right was not having the opportunity to share that moment with all the people we love– thanks to the fear of Covid. There were only 20 guests in attendance, which meant I got 10 invites.. as did Todd. In addition to several […]

Bold Coats with Classic Silhouettes // January 10 Things

Winters in the South are always unpredictable. Temperatures can be in the low 40s one day, and the mid-70s the next. In fact, when Todd + I got married last month we were blessed with the most beautiful day because it was unseasonably warm. But January tends have the most foreseen forecast as it is […]

Palladium Society’s Newest Board Member // Historic Columbia

*Pictured on the porch of the Mann-Simons home during the re-opening in 2017* One thing that I’m really looking forward to this year is becoming even more active with Historic Columbia through their young professional group, Palladium Society. Last summer, as the social justice + civil rights protests erupted, I made a promise to myself […]

Sweet Potato Pie with Maple Bourbon Pecan Topping // Thanksgiving Recipe

I love Thanksgiving! But what’s not to love? Everyone in your family gathering around a beautifully set table while enjoying dishes + recipes that have been passed down for generations. Still sad that this year is going to look completely different, but we’ve decided to try something new to add a little excitement to the […]

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 […]

A Trip to The Bluff // Montage Palmetto Bluff Recap

If, like me, you can’t get enough of marsh view or Spanish moss-covered oaks, then this place should be at the top of your travel bucket list. (Be sure to read to the bottom for a special booking code) […]

Safari Fall Festival // Eudora Farms

This morning we noticed that a mini pumpkin had grown on our pumpkin vine in the backyard. Though is was adorable, it wasn’t going to do much for decorating the house, so we took advantage of the gorgeous, chilly fall weather and decided to go in search of a few pumpkins for the season. After […]

Networking in Charleston // Fall 2020

If I’ve learned anything in the past few years its that you are only as successful as the relationships you build. My brand would be nothing if it weren’t for my network, so I’m always looking for opportunities to nurture those relationships, while also creating new ones. Thanks to Covid– it had been a while […]

Dining Outdoors // Post House Collection

“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.”- Oscar Wilde Is it just me, or does it feel like one night the weather just decided to make a leap into a completely different season? We woke up one morning last week and were so confused to find that summer had disappeared. Like how on Earth are […]

What makes a Southern Woman “A Lady”? // May 10 things

Not too long ago I decided to try something new on Instagram! I sat down, with a glass of wine, and used the “questions” feature on stories. It was open ended: “Ask me anything!” To my surprise, questions came flooding in…and the mirco-community I’ve built on the platform was curious about things I hadn’t thought […]
