Blogger Brunch at the Colony

Recently I was invited to attend an exclusive blogger event at the prestigious Colony Hotel in Palm Beach. I couldn’t wait to pay this pretty pink hotel a visit.

If you haven’t booked a summer trip you must add it to your list. This boutique hotel is a blogger’s dream, from palm leaf lined halls to pink striped walls.

The patio was sprinkled with swag bags and stylish tablescapes from fabulous local businesses. The set-up was so inviting and truly tickled pink.

Our table was full of bloggers, instagrammers, models and more. It was the perfect platform for networking in my niche industry. We enjoyed speaking about Instagram strategies as we enjoyed our sweet little brunch snacks.

Our event would not be complete without a couple photo ops. My newfound friends and I hit the pool for a few pics and made our way inside to explore the polo lounge and more.

I cannot wait to get back together with these girls, create content, and continue to grow in my Palm Beach blogger community.

Stay tuned and follow along for our next gathering!

Kissing Summer Goodbye

As we are soaking up the last bit of sunshine, I wanted to send off the summer in style. This week I am throwing it back to my days of living beachside in the Outer Banks.

You could always find me sitting by the pool catching some rays and sipping on sunshine. What better way to be made in the shade than to lounge the day away?

I have to say, my favorite way to spend the day is in a bikini by the beach. I couldn’t wait to soak in the saltwater and slip into the sand. The Outer Banks is such a sweet beach retreat. I can’t wait to go back!

You can shop my swimwear at Marleylilly and find my watermelon hat at T.J. Maxx.

Be sure to book your next summer beach trip to the Outer Banks, SC.

Myrtle Beach Retreat

I couldn’t wait to swan dive into summer and hit the beach for a sweet retreat! I hopped in my best babe’s car and soon we were beach bound with our boys.

We spent our afternoon pulling out the floats, popping out the umbrellas and chilling in our chairs. We had so much fun soaking up the sun and sipping on freezies at the tiki.

For date night, plus Mike, we cruised down to Crab Catchers. We feasted on fresh seafood and sat by the water. The sunset on the dock was the perfect dinner backdrop.

We spent our last day floating in the pool with friends and relaxing before we hit the road. I was so sad to leave our new beach pad, but I had such a blast with my best buds. I can’t wait to see what the rest of summer has in store!

Come See Me Festival

Every April I always look forward to our annual salute to Spring, the Come See Me Festival. It is my favorite local festival in my hometown of Rock Hill, SC. This fest is full of fun events, from frog jumps to fireworks and more.

The community kicks off the event with the Come See Me Parade. Our beloved mascot Glen the Frog always makes an appearance, along with the Shriners and the Strawberry Queen.

I also love to hit the Hops in the Park, where you can sip samples from local breweries, and snack on sweets at the Gourmet Gardens. The best party is the Beach Bash, where you can dance the night away to live music, and have a beer with your best buds.

A great event for the girls is the Bubbles and Berries Brunch. It is a wonderful afternoon hosted by the Women’s Club, complete with sweet treats and champagne.

The grand finale is the famous fireworks show. Locals gather around Winthrop Lake for an all- day tailgate. The night lights up with live music as fireworks fill the sky. What better ending to this annual event? I already can’t wait for next year!

Come See Me Festival: April 12-21st in Rock Hill SC
