Charleston Getaway Giveaway
What’s in our Charleston Getaway Giveaway? Well, the three of us put our heads together and thought about everything we’d love to do on a getaway to Charleston. The result = this giveaway. Our goal was to put together the ultimate Charleston trip for the winner to enjoy. It is full of a two-night hotel stay at charming Zero George, restaurant gift cards to the yummiest spots, a luxe shopping experience, interesting history and art tours, and a favorite beauty pampering experience. Did I mention that it is incredibly easy to enter to win? Keep reading for a breakdown of everything included in the Charleston giveaway.
Two-Night Weekday Stay at Zero George
Chassity, Kristin, and I all agree that it doesn’t get any better than Zero George. I would classify it as one of my most favorite hotels I’ve ever stayed in anywhere (not just in Charleston)! Zero George oozes character, personality, and charm. It is a little southern oasis with plush rooms, beautiful common spaces, delicious food, and impeccable service. The complimentary wine and cheese hour everyday is the cheery on top of the whole hotel experience. With the exception of a photo or two taken around the city of Charleston, every photos in this post was snapped at Zero George by the talented Julie Livingston! So, you can see how dreamy it is.
$500 Gift Card to Shop Hampden Clothing
Oh my goodness, this alone is worth entering the giveaway! All of our favorite women’s clothing and accessories boutique in Charleston, Hampden Clothing, is participating in this giveaway by including a $500 gift card to use to shop on your trip to the Holy City. Hampden has three storefronts in Charleston – Hampden, Small, and James – that make up one of the best women’s boutiques in the world. The owner, Stacy, is an incredible talent and we’re so fortunate to have her keeping Charleston so stylish! Hampden carries so many of my favorite brands from Ulla Johnson to Zimmermann to Loeffler Randall to Lizzie Fortunado. Hampden was also kind enough to lend us our outfits for this shoot.
Henrietta’s $150 Dining Gift Card
Henrietta’s is one of the most divine restaurants in Charleston so it’s no surprise we wanted to include it in this giveaway! They serve up reimagined southern food and is know as a brasserie without boarders… aka the menu is a delicious fusion of French and Southern food. The restaurant has no shortage of character and, without a doubt, has some of the best service in town. Pro tip: grab drinks after dinner next door at the Living Room bar.
Purlieu $100 Dining Gift Card
I’d classify Purlieu as one of my top favorite restaurants in Charleston! I swoon over the always rotating seasonal menu of traditional European cooking and traditional Lowcountry cooking. When in doubt though, the burger and fries are always an A+. I love the cozy neighborhood atmosphere of this little eatery. To me, it feels like it could be in New York City’s West Village neighborhood just as much as it could be in Charleston. When you finish your dinner at Purlieu, you’ll be left dreaming about your next visit. It’s that’s fantastic!
Basic Kitchen $100 Dining Gift Card
Where do I even start with Basic Kitchen? Chassity, Kristin, and I love it so much that it wouldn’t be crazy to find us each here at least once a week. I recommend colorful Basic Kitchen to Charleston visitors for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. You can’t miss at Basic! Basic Kitchen is so delicious because the restaurant uses seasonal, local produce and the best ingredients to create food that’s good for the mind, body, and soul. Giveaway winner, I promise that your meal at Basic Kitchen will be a highlight of your trip to Charleston!
Babas on Cannon $50 Dining/Drinking Gift Card
When Babas on Cannon opened in Charleston, it quickly became one of our go-to spots for bites + sips. Babas has the charm of an old world café bar and serves up classic coffee and fine apéro. The best part about Babas is that you can visit in the morning for coffee and baked treats or at night for drinks and small plates. You can really pick your poison! It’s no wonder this is a Charleston locals favorite watering hole!
Two Pedicures at The Water Room
The Water Room is Charleston’s nontoxic nail salon. Y’all, it is so chic that I never want to leave when my nail appointments are done! Ever since The Water Room opened, it’s hard to imagine going anywhere else for my nail care. Everyone at The Water Room is sweeter than pie and so talented. I really can’t get enough of the selection of 8 free, cruelty free, vegan, nontoxic polishes. The winner of this giveaway will win two Level 3 Pedicures. I just know you are going to be over the moon with your experience here!
Two Tour Tickets for Walk and Talk Charleston
We all agree that Walk and Talk Charleston is our favorite tour of the city! Tyler, who runs the tours, has an incredible wealth of knowledge about Charleston, a fantastic sense of humor, and a love and admiration for the Holy City that really shines through on her tours. I particularly love Tyler’s walking tours of Charleston so much because, instead of spitting our fact after fact, she does a wonderful job of storytelling. On a Walk and Talk tour, you’ll explore some of Charleston’s most beautiful streets while learning about the city’s rich history and historical gossip. The winner of this giveaway will win two tour tickets!
Two Tickets to the Gibbes Museum of Art
The Gibbes Museum of Art is Charleston’s premier art museum and one of the top art museums of the South. From Colonial to Contemporary, the Gibbes reveals the story of Charleston through art. I visit the Gibbes a handful of times every year to see a new exhibition, to tour the permanent collection, or to attend a concert or other special event hosted by the museum. The museum itself is stunning and so lovely to wander through. I love the museum so much that I’m a member! The winner of this giveaway will win two tickets to the museum as well as a dining credit at the museum’s delicious café, The Daily. The Daily is one of our favorite coffee shops and cafés in all of Charleston! What better way to spend a Charleston morning than with the Gibbes and The Daily?
