2. What has been your proudest blogging moment?
My proudest moment so far would have to be working with all the great brands here in Charleston. Everyone has been so supportive and I love working with similar minded brands that have a passion for fashion and design. I hope to continue partnering with brands and other bloggers here to keep building a great community of friends.

3. What is something you would like to learn more about?

4. Favorite place to sit and blog in the city?
My favorite place to write would be in City Lights (or in my home, because hello, no pants required!) I enjoy watching people walk past and bouncing off ideas to my friends that work there.

5. If you could grab coffee with any blogger who would it be?
There are so many bloggers that I’d love to grab coffee with but my top pick would have to be either Emily Schuman of Cupcakes & Cashmere or Elsie and Emma of A Beautiful Mess. I’ve followed their blogs for years and have been a big source of inspiration for me.
