I am heading to Charleston today! I can’t wait to see this beautiful city as everyone I know who has been, loves it. Over the past few weeks myself and a handful of other bloggers have been receiving goodies from local Charleston shops. Each box has been incredible and has me completely ready to just get there. I have loved learning about the history of Charleston through facts sent with the products. For example, it is said to paint your piazza ceiling “haint blue” or “Gullah blue” to ward off evil spirits from your home. And in celebration of the Gallah heritage, Le Crueset commissioned limited edition mini cocettes in the azure hue (seen in the photos). And the tea cup you see? It is a replica of the original 17th century set of Sacred Bird & Butterfly porcelain demitasse cup and saucer that is on display in the Charleston’s Nathaniel Russel House Museum. Pretty legit!
I am such a history nerd so I am beyond excited to be in a city that is so full of it! I will definitely bring you all the details of my favorite places I ate and more! Check ya on the flip side!
Oh, before you go be sure to watch my new video – packing for Charleston. It features the Lo & Sons Catalina weekender bag you also see in this photo! It seriously is the most amazing bag!
