Bloggers Night Out // StyleDwell

This past December we hosted a holiday party at the James Island boutique StyleDwell. The bloggers were treated to a DIY hot cocoa bar and goody bags full of candles from Candlefish and adorable pom pom key chains from StyleDwell. While Jamberry gave the bloggers tired hands a refresh with a pop up a nail bar. This was a holiday party not to be missed!

5 Questions With Aimee Mars

Today we would like to introduce you to blogger Aimee Mars! Make sure to check out her blog and visit her Instagram here. 003
1. What inspired you to start a blog and how long have you been blogging?
Just months after my clothing line in New York City came to a screeching halt I found myself happily home with a newborn but desperately seeking a creative side project to call my own. Though it started as a project to obtain control at a time in my life when everything else felt as though it were spinning wildly out of control, I found my site to be a great outlet for defining a fresh direction in life and establishing new dreams.

2. What has been your proudest blogging moment?
I wanted to learn every aspect there was to running a website and blogging so I took it upon myself to design the site, code it, and run it in entirety. My proudest blogging moment was actually figuring out how to code and seeing the site live for the very first time. It’s a moment I get to relive often because every time I want to add a new feature, page or design, it requires more code. I’m still completely stunned it works when I hit publish.

3. What is something you would like to learn more about?
Honestly, I would like to learn more about writing as basic as it may sound. I always want my posts to be elegantly written with my true voice and personality shining through, but also have them be grammatically correct as well. Grammar can sometimes be a challenge to say the least.

4. Favorite place to sit and blog in the city?
My family and I moved to Charleston less than 7 months ago from NYC (read: I haven’t completely found my “favorite” spot yet) but in an effort to replace some of our city haunts we’ve been visiting many of the great cafes and quiet wine bars around town. Currently I’d have to rank St. Alban as one of my favorite blogging spots, and I’ll willingly visit many times just to confirm!

5. If you could grab coffee with any blogger who would it be?
The blogger I’d most like to grab coffee with at the moment would be Jillian Harris (her blog is also called Jillian Harris). I found her site and Instagram feed, which are topnotch, long before I knew she was the bachelorette or a host on Love It or List It, but I was hooked instantly. She seems extremely warm and friendly and I always love her content as well as how she presents it.

Bloggers at the Barre

This past November the Charleston Blog Society was treated to an after hours private class at Barre Evolution. The barre studio opened their doors to us and introduced our group to the amazingly challenging and strengthening world that is Barre. Barre Evolution might be hands down the friendliest exercise studio you will ever go to. They warmly welcomed all of us bloggers and were beyond patient and excited to help everyone through their first barre experience. The bloggers were treated to goody bags full of sticky socks, Barre Evolution t-shirts, guests passes and coupons for Blend Juice Bar.

We began our night sampling juices from Blend Juice Bar. (My personal favorite was the red, who knew beet juice could be so good?) We then met the owners of Barre Evolution Nancy, Nicole, and our instructor for the night, Teresa. Teresa led us through an hour long class that pushed us to shake and stretch! Trying a new exercise can be intimidating but the Barre Evolution instructors are just so warm that all of us felt completely comfortable during our first experience. So much so that several bloggers signed up for monthly memberships after their first experience. If you see any of us bloggers at the barre make sure you come say hi!

What inspired you to start a blog and how long have you been blogging?
I had wanted to start a blog for years but I wanted to make sure that my website would be something that I was proud of and happy with the moment that it launched because I think consistency is key. Last summer I began working with the girls at Row Collective, now known as The Royal Wild, and my blog went live in August.

What has been your proudest blogging moment?
I am always excited when someone re-grams or posts my pictures, but the moment I am most proud of is last December when Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle blog, re-grammed one of my photos.

What is something you would like to learn more about?
This list is practically endless, but as a recent college graduate, I would love to learn more about expanding my audience and turning my blog into a career.

Favorite place to sit and blog in the city?
While I definitely prefer to sit in my pj’s and blog from home, there are two spots in town I like to go to get some serious work done: St. Alban’s and Black Tap Coffee.

If you could grab coffee with any blogger who would it be?
This is easy for me because one of my favorite people in the world is Sarah of What Sarah Knows! We grew up across the street from each other on Church Street and I consider her family, plus her blog is fabulous and it’s always fun to pick her brain.
