Surprise!! I have another dreamy Giveaway for you today! I’ve partnered with my blogger friends Kristin Chambless and Jillian Eversole to give away an epic Charleston Getaway Giveaway Package!

We’ve partnered with some of our most favorite downtown Charleston spots to curate a pretty dreamy getaway package that makes even a local like me want to have a staycation! It all kicks off with a 2 night weekday stay at Zero George hotel, one of the most charming spots in the city. Zero George is a gorgeously restored historic, boutique hotel comprised of 16 lush guest rooms. The design throughout the main inn and 2 carriage houses is enchanting and is the best spot to relax. And the candle lit Zero restaurant is delicious, as well.

We have a few fun activities pulled together included in this giveaway to make for a perfect Charleston experience! Enjoy 2 Level 3 CBD Pedicures from The Water Room, Charleston’s nail salon with a clean conscience. Not only is The Water Room visually stunning, they focus on clean, non toxic beauty. It’s a truly special experience. Also included in the giveaway are 2 Walk & Talk Tour Charleton Tickets with the Lid Lady, Tyler Wright. I actually haven’t done one of her tours but it is now high on my list. Both Kristin and Jillian sing Tyler’s praises and I’m now wondering where she’s been all my life – must book a tour stat!! Additionally, one of my personal favorites, experience The Gibbes Museum for two! The Gibbes is art collection spans 4 centuries and connects the city’s artistic past and to a vibrant contemporary art scene. Included with the tickets is a snack in The Daily cafe located inside the museum, as well as a special discount in the museum store.

And because Charleston’s food scene is so fantastic, we are also including gift cards to 4 amazing downtown restaurants! First up, a $150 gift card to Henrietta’s! I recommend brunch or dinner at this brasserie, and prepare to stay awhile because it’s just so beautiful that you won’t want to leave! And how about a $100 gift card to the most instagramable restaurant in town, Basic Kitchen! Don’t worry, their locally sourced menu is just as amazing (I love the cauliflower wings for lunch). Next up, a $100 gift card to one of the best french bistros in town, Purlieu! They also happen to have one of my most favorite burgers ever. And lastly, cap off your night with drinks and a bite at Babas on Cannon. This spot is great with friends or for a date night – and the bartenders are some of the best in town!

And we have one more inclusion for our giveaway – a $500 gift card to my favorite clothing boutique in town, Hampden Clothing! I know!! Hampden carries the coolest new designers and spans over 4 retail spaces on King Street, so it’s basically impossible to walk out empty handed. And they were so sweet to dress Kristin, Jillian, and me for our giveaway shoot!


On Me: Pink Floral Dress

It’s that time of year when I spend all of my money at Out of Hand. Seriously though, they’re one of my favorite local boutiques all year round, but especially at Christmas time because they have the best gifts for basically every single person on my list. And even better news – they have an amazing online website now, too! They’re not just for the Charleston locals anymore!

I regularly shop at OOH for make up (they carry some of my favorite brands like RMS and ILIA), flowers (their floral department is phenomenal), and cute clothes and accessories. This time of year I stock up on gift cards for teachers and other unique gift ideas. Here is just a sampling of the amazing items you’ll find online and in store!

OOH has one of the best ornament department, hands down. They have the cutest themed gift boxes (welcome to the neighborhood, spa day, many thanks…). And they have a lot of great finds for guys, too. And you know how hard they are to shop for. I’m thinking that sunscreen powder brush and the Indie Lee bath salts would be great in my own stocking! And that beautiful silk pillow case is half the price of the Slip pillowcases!

If you’re local you should 100% pop in the Out of Hand store, they’re located right in the Old Village neighborhood on a really charming, historic street. Pop into the Pitt St Pharmacy next door for a milkshake after. If you’re not local (or just real busy) check out their website!

Anyone else spending a little extra time perusing party dresses this week. I know I have. Nothing brings me more joy than shopping for a party (or a vacation) dress! This new black dress with metallic dot puff sleeves by GMG is the best little fit and flare shape, and I love the scallop detail.

I’ve had these Santa cocktail glasses for a few years now and every December I pull them out and keep them out on our bar. Just a fun little festive touch.

Don’t be tardy to the party. I’ll take any excuse to throw on any of these fun frocks. I’m especially feeling this gorgeous wrap dress. And this dress somehow didn’t make it into the collage but it’s super cute.

December is easily my favorite (and busiest) month of the year. I just love everything about the holidays, especially all of our family traditions. Each year we get a new set of family pajamas, and this year I ordered these grey plaid flannel pajamas.

I love a good holiday party or dinner out as much as the next person, but staying home in my cozy pajamas watching holiday movies and eating popcorn is all that I truly want to do. Our favorite family holiday movies include the new Grinch, Elf, Home Alone, and The Polar Express. And it just isn’t Christmas if I don’t watch Love Actually and Christmas Vacation (after the kids are in bed, of course).

I found these flannel pajamas in the Nordstrom Made section on their site. This is where you can find all the brands created by Nordstrom for you specifically, with fashion and value in mind! You probably know of a lot of the brands already, like Halogen, Chelsea28, and BP. The Nordstrom Made section is also where you will find all of Nordstrom’s amazing collaborations with inspiring bloggers like Atlantic Pacific, Something Navy, and Rachel Parcell.

I included these butter crew socks I’m wearing in one of my gift guides, and let me tell you they really are the softest socks of all time. They come in a lot of colors, too. Lilly’s wearing these cozy printed socks, and Fletcher is wearing these red plaid socks.

Another favorite family tradition that might be the most fun is our Elf on the Shelf, Buddy, that visits us each year. Every morning Lilly and Fletcher run downstairs to find him. It’s seriously the most joyful and amazing memory maker. The kids love leaving notes for him.

And what would December be without holiday baking?! Decorating sugar cookies is so much fun and the best family night in activity and the kids love it!

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend – our’s was nice! We celebrated Josh’s birthday, had a family Christmas with Josh’s side, and caught the Christmas parade last night. The weekend flew by and yesterday was so busy that I sort of feel like I didn’t get much of a break, but I guess that’s just December for you. Must push forward. Today’s post is dedicated to gift ideas for the ladies on your list (or for your own wishlist)! I have my eye on a few of these items, like that amazing faux fiddle leaf fig tree and the raffia wrapped earrings!

12 Gifts For Her:

Fiddle Leaf Fig – It’s faux but you wouldn’t know! (See what I did there?) This is on my wish list! It comes in two sizes and won’t die!!

Travel Cosmetic Bag – A fresh cosmetic bag is always fun isn’t it? This one is so cute.

Birthstone Ring – A splurge but these birthstone rings are so special and stack beautifully.

Leopard Card Case – I rarely ever even use my large wallet anymore, these card cases are just easier for me because I regularly switch out my bags depending on my outfit.

Gingham Napkin Set – My friend Meredith just launched the most adorable linens collection called Butter Radish! A new set of napkins makes for a great gift, or for yourself for your holiday table!

Polka Dot Pajamas – LOVE the green piping on these pj’s! These are the cutest.

Gem Earring Set – I love a good earring set, all three pairs are so fun and I couldn’t pick a favorite anyway!

Cozy Plaid Blanket – Not inventing the wheel here, but there is good reason why a beautiful throw makes for a great gift!

Yeti Coffee Mug – These mugs are ALWAYS a good idea. They make great stocking stuffers as well.

Raffia Gumdrop Earring – I mean these are really cute don’t you think?! ON my personal wish list!

Floral Duffle Bag – For the girly girl. The most beautiful duffle bag!

Fur Lined Mules – Okay these leopard faux fur lined mules must feel like Heaven. So cute with jeans and a sweater!

This reversible travel wrap makes a great gift, too! It’s super soft and comes in a lot of different color combinations. I’m wearing it with this cream mock neck sweater, these pintuck cream pants, and these pink velvet loafers. Hope your week is off to a great start!
