Wishing this was my Friday night view back in Charleston🍸 @therestorationhotel has a divine drink selection on their rooftop bar + a cute little coffee shop downstairs ☕️ Highly recommend visiting both when in Chucktown!

Found a BBQ sauce combo up my alley! Store-bought bbq sauces, while I love, usually way too high in sugar. This is a combo of soy, sambal, brown sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil. Measure according to your preference 😊 These fat, bone-in breasts marinated for over 24hrs, maybe the key to truly permeate. Skin nearly charred but isn't that the best part 😁 oh sides! #creamedmushroom #creamedspinach #cucumber

We’ve been traveling in different directions and passing in airports the last few weeks. Had a meeting together in Mt Pleasant today and afterwards decided to take a “romantic stroll” down the Pitt St Bridge while the kids were still with the sitter. Of course, as soon as we got to the far side of the bridge, the skies opened up and completely soaked us! We run back... and not 2 minutes after we got back in the car, the skies clear and the sun comes back out. Well played, Mother Nature, well played! Lol

Skincare is our jam. We comb through ingredients, we test, we love, we share. Lots of intuition thrown in. The ritual draws me in ... the pause, the play, the skin (& soul) food, the results ✨

Last year, for the first time ever, I experienced perioral dermatitis. Have you heard of this?? All these tiny, rashy, itchy, pustule breakouts appeared on both sides of my chin, going up around the sides of my mouth up to my nostrils & even a few near my eyes. No fun guys, it was rough. I didn't feel or look like myself. I thought, "How can this be!?? My skincare rocks, my diet is mostly clean, my gut 👌." Then more fears crept in, "Why would anyone buy skincare from someone whose skin looks like THIS?!" The pressure was real 😔. There were several times I was so frustrated that I was two seconds away from calling a dermatologist. But then my teacher would remind me, "Don't focus on the symptoms, it's a trap. Ask for clarification 🙏🏽 & then wait as long as it takes for your mind to receive it & you WILL KNOW what is going on." Not easy folks, but I did just that. I supported my symptoms, but my intent was to heal the root cause.
So I simplified my skincare (focusing on calming, cooling, anti-inflammatory) & dug deeply into the stress & mindsets that got me here. I was willing to look at what was coming forward (& represented on my face!) to let them go & forgive. As I did the work, I watched the rashy, pustules move around on my face & then gradually disappear. Then one day I just knew, "It's done. This is no longer needed." It took about six months to fully heal. Nothing has taught me more about my skin reflecting on the outside what's going on on the inside than this💞. 🙇🏻‍♀️My GO-TOS in times of skin stress are @dralkaitis , @siam_seas & @provinceapothecary's Spot Treatment. Targeting inflamed areas with CBD hemp oil is in my arsenal, as well 👌

Crossing off more places on my quest to eat my way through Charleston...

Slightly North of Broad does a mean shrimp and grits. 🍤

Feel the breeze on your skin, the water rushing at your feet. watch the sun slowly fade over the horizon.

Reality? It's a little chilly, the water is blissfully warm, and I'm missing the sensation of taking off and landing.

I broke a promise to myself today, a promise to never wear rainboots with shorts 😭. Add it to the list of things Charleston has taketh from me!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Privilege of saying “oh I don’t sunburn” (Surprise, I do!)
- Freedom to drive at least the speed limit (come on people!)
- Ability to comfortably say “you guys” (okay, this one I like a little hehe #yall)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s a good thing you are pretty, Charleston. How’s the rain treating everyone else today? 🌧️
