Two Night Stay at Zero George
We all just adore Zero George. That’s why we knew that we’d be so lucky to have Zero George included in our giveaway again this year. I would honestly say that Zero George is one of my most favorite hotels I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying at. Zero George is a little slice of heaven nestled away on George Street (hence its name). Known for its distinct personality, charming rooms, delicious food, and impeccable service, Zero George is simply divine. We took the photos for this post at Zero George with the talented Anne Rhett so you can see how dreamy the boutique hotel is. The winner of this giveaway will win a two night stay at Zero George (based on availability at time of booking).
Beau & Ro
Charleston’s main shopping street, King Street, got a whole lot brighter this year with the opening of Beau & Ro’s flagship store! Beau and Ro is an inspired handbag, clothing, and accessories brand and boutique by my amazing friend Sara Rossi. Sara designs her own in-house Beau & Ro line of beautiful pieces as well as curates a one-of-a-kind selection of unique brands in her boutique. Regular readers will know that I’m a huge fan of Beau & Ro and am always shopping here when I’m in need of a new something. I love shopping at Beau & Ro because I know I’ll find something that not everyone already has! Beau & Ro was so kind to dress us for the shoot for this giveaway so the dresses and some of the accessories we’re all wearing can be found there! The winner of this giveaway will win a $1,000 gift card to Beau & Ro!
A shopping experience at Hampden is enough reason in and of itself to enter this giveaway! Hampden is one of my other most favorite women’s clothing and accessories boutiques in Charleston. The owner, Stacy, is an incredible talent and we’re so fortunate to have her in Charleston! Hampden carries so many of my favorite brands from Ulla Johnson to Zimmermann to Loeffler Randall to Lizzie Fortunado. The winner of this giveaway will win a $500 gift card to Hampden!
Croghan’s Jewel Box
Where do I begin with Croghan’s!? Croghan’s really is one of the jewels of Charleston. It is a family run jewelry store that has been in business for over 100 years. They have the most astonishingly beautiful and well curated selection of jewelry (vintage, estate, fine, and modern), silver, and gifts. Every single item in the store is a treasure to have for years and to pass down within the family. I have some fun, affordable, modern jewelry from Croghan’s along with some silver pieces I cherish, a pair of stunning antique earrings I wore on my wedding day, beautiful charms on my charm bracelet, and my beloved locket, which was my push present from Edwin when we had Rowan. It’s the most special store! The winner of this giveaway will win a $500 gift card to Croghan’s Jewel Box!
Madison Mathews is a Charleston cult favorite! Their ‘Folly Dress’ style is beloved by all and a staple in my closet. I have it in a few prints and wear it constantly. Like the other boutiques above, Madison Mathews is a special one to shop at in Charleston because we have their only storefront in our city. If you love block prints, then you’ll love Madison Mathews. The winner of this giveaway will win a $250 gift card to Madison Mathews!
To know me is to know my love for LAKE Pajamas. I pretty much exclusively wear LAKE pjs now and wouldn’t have it any other way. From their nightgowns to their matching pajama sets to their maternity styles, I love them all. Rowan is also cute as a button in his precious little LAKE Pajamas. Their two-story Charleston flagship store is such a beautiful place to shop for new cozy, soft items. The winner of this giveaway will win a $175 gift card to LAKE Pajamas + an in-store champagne shopping experience!
Amanda Lindroth, you’re simply the best! I adore having the Amanda Lindroth flagship store in Charleston. When you step foot in the store, you’ll feel like you’ve instantly been transported to the Bahamas. Every piece of furniture, every linen, and every home accessory that Amanda designs is gold! I could quite literally move into the store and live there happily ever after. We have a lot of Amanda Lindroth in our home including table linens and picture frames that I love. The winner of this giveaway will win a $100 gift card to Amanda Lindroth!
The Tiny Tassel
The Tiny Tassel’s first ever boutique was a marvelous addition to Charleston this past year! In addition, The Tiny Tassel is a one-stop-shop for adorable gift ideas, the cutest unique clothing, and colorful fun earrings (the brand’s namesake) that you’ll want to buy for you and everyone you know. The owner, Mimi, is such a ray of sunshine and the creative genius behind the brand. Be sure to say hi if she’s in the shop when you pop in! The winner of this giveaway will win a $100 gift card to The Tiny Tassel!

The marvelous Hart Hagerty of Hart designs the most unique and personality-rich jewelry that I think really is for every women. Hart describes her jewelry as playful, empowering, and joyful. What’s not to love!? I just designed a Hart charm bracelet in her brand new Charleston studio and had a blast (I’m wearing it in these photos)! Hart is unique in that she offers in-studio custom charm making experiences where you can design charm jewelry unique to you with Hart, which is exactly what the winner will win! The winner of this giveaway will win an in-studio custom charm making experience for two at HART!
Walk & Talk Tours
Walk and Talk Charleston is my favorite tour in the city! The tours are run by Tyler who has an incredible wealth of knowledge about Charleston’s history and the people who have shaped the city over the years. The tours are made better by Tyler’s wonderful sense of humor, storytelling ability, and serious love and admiration for the Holy City. Tyler doesn’t just share facts about Charleston’s past; rather, she tells rich stories about the very colorful Charlestonians of the past. On a Walk and Talk tour, you can expect to wander some of Charleston’s most beautiful streets while learning about the city’s distinct history and historical gossip. It’s a wonderful way to see the city! The winner of this giveaway will win two Walk & Talk tour tickets!
One of my favorite memorable activities that Charleston has to offer is candle making at the adorable Candlefish. Our giveaway includes a $110 gift card, which can be used both in store and online for workshop candle making class registration and / or products. Workshops start at $55, so the gift card is perfect for 2 workshop spots, or a combo of workshops and candles depending on what the winner prefers. If you do a candle making class with the gift card (which is what I recommend!), you will create your own candles to take home from their extensive library of scents and enjoy a lovely few hours making them. The class is BYOB so bring a bottle of wine to enjoy! The winner of this giveaway will win a $110 gift card that is good for two candle making class passes or product at Candlefish!
The Gaillard Center
The Gaillard Center is one of Charleston’s epicenters of culture and the arts. At the Gaillard, you can see everything including The Nutcracker at Christmas, renowned Jazz performers, country stars like Tim McGraw (I saw and met Tim here!), book tours with the likes of Reese Witherspoon (I saw and met her here on tour for her coffee table book!), comedians, and more. It is also conveniently located right across the street from Zero George so you can plan your trip around a performance you want to see at The Gaillard. The winner of this giveaway will win a $100 gift card + a VIP experience (which includes a parking pass and 2 drink vouchers).
Baseline Studios is one of Charleston’s best local fitness and personal training studios. They specialize in 1:1 personal training + small group training where no two sessions are the same. I did some small group training at Baseline after I had Rowan and was working to loose my baby weight. I completely loved the energy and workouts! The winner of this giveaway will win a one week unlimited fitness pass for two to Baseline Studios!
Lenoir was such a welcome addition to Charleston’s vibrant food scene this last year! It was opened by award-winning chef and author Vivian Howard in the heart of town and offers gourmet modern takes on Southern food. They do it all well – vegetables and proteins… everything is delicious! Don’t skip on ordering fries for the table too! The winner of this giveaway will win a $200 gift card to Lenoir!
Chasing Sage finally opened its doors this past summer to welcome patrons after over a year of delays due to Covid. Thank goodness the Chasing Sage dream stayed alive because it is simply delicious! It’s the perfect place to go and share small plates to enjoy all the flavors. At Chasing Sage, they celebrate seasonality centered on locally-grown produce, including produce that is grown on their family’s farm in Smoaks, SC. It is all incredibly well done and you can’t go wrong with a single item on the menu. The winner of this giveaway will win a $200 gift card to Chasing Sage.
I love Basic Kitchen so much that I find myself sometimes eating in here or taking out once a week! I always recommend cheerful Basic Kitchen to Charleston visitors for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. You can’t miss at Basic! Basic Kitchen is so delicious because the restaurant uses seasonal, local produce and the best ingredients to create food that’s good for the mind, body, and soul. The winner of this giveaway will win a $100 gift card to Basic Kitchen!
Graft is the most fantastic spot in town to enjoy a glass or a bottle of wine. Whether you sit at the bar to enjoy a glass of wine and a delicious bite or meet some friends to select and try out a new bottle of wine from their unique and extensive selection (I promise it’s not pretentious at all though!), you will be so very happy. Graft has good energy and a great team behind it keeping it different and special. The winner of this giveaway will win a $75 gift card to Graft!
