Charleston Bloggers Shoot & Brunch

As y’all know, I recently started my blog and as luck would have it, I randomly met Vi through a friend and she so graciously invited me to her first Charleston blogger event. To be honest, I was super nervous to attend the event. I feel like I am a ‘wannabe’ blogger right now. Thankfully all of these women are amazing rockstars and were extremely kind (and friendly…southern hospitality is a real thing). They all have a different kind of Charleston blog so if you are obsessed with all things Charleston check them out:

The event was held The event was held at the delightfully delicious Edmund’s Oast. I had no idea that they had a private room at their location. It’s connected to this cool little patio area too; so if you are looking for a smaller private space for an event in Charleston, I’d definitely recommend this place. We easily fit all of us in the room and we could’ve probably fit 4-8 more with strategic seating arrangements.

Chopped Salad from Edmund's Oast

The food at Edmund’s Oast is SO GOOD. Living in Charleston, you become a food snob unintentionally. The culinary scene here is out of this world. The only place I’ve ever visited that gave Charleston a run for its money food-wise was Las Vegas. I’ve previously attended Edmund’s Oast for a happy hour event, but I only saw the main dining area during that visit. It was nice to see more of the building this time. It’s such an aesthetically pleasing place. I don’t know who designed the building + decorated the inside; but whoever did it did a fantastic job… it’s a gorgeous place. They have an amazing wine and beer selection and when you pair it with a delicious charcuterie board it makes for a good night.

For brunch, I got the chopped salad and the girl sitting next to me got a cheeseburger. The salad was absolutely amazing. It was so fresh and flavorful. 

The cheeseburger looked and smelled amazing. I didn’t sneak a bite because (unfortunately) it is totally socially unacceptable to eat the food off of someone’s plate that you just met (lol). But, I might have to go back and order it for my next cheat meal! 😉


Until next time…

Craving serenity.

It’s funny how different things in your life inspire you in different ways. I’ve been so attracted to blues lately and it’s coming through in a lot of my artwork. When I take a second to really think about the reason behind why, I think I am really craving serenity.
