#BloggersDoFolly Recap

I’m back with another recap this week (you can read all about #sbscon here) and today it is allllll about my time in Folly Beach with some of my favorite blogger gals! After we wrapped up Southern Blog Society conference festivities we headed to Folly Beach for some fun in the sun. We stayed at The Rathershacks, a cute little group of houses right at the beach, and had such a fun time together! After a weekend of non-stop events we were ready to kick back, relax, and make some memories with our blogger girl gang (as we so named ourselves!) 
We arrived to our house and found the cutest beach accessories and gift bags for our stay from our sweet host, Kristin! They were such a surprise and provided us with a ton of fun over the next few days.

Our first morning started at The Lost Dog and it just so happened to be $3 Mimosa Monday, so naturally we had to partake…a few times! We had the best breakfast (I highly recommend the strawberry pancakes and huervos rancheros, both were table favorites!) then headed for the beach. And not without our cute beach accessories! 

The next morning we woke up early for paddle board lessons! I would be lying if I said we weren’t all a bit nervous, but it ended up being a blast. I think we were all sad when it was over. We all did really well (minus my one fall!) and learned a lot from our instructors at Sup Safaris. I cannot wait to go paddle boarding again soon.

Afterwards we hopped on our beach cruisers (our preferred transportation on the island) and grabbed lunch at The Crab Shack, which again, was delicious. I love seafood, so whenever I am at the beach I eat as much of it as I can. Also….sneak peek into blogger life below. This is what our table looks like right when food comes haha! Gotta get that shot, people!


Once lunch was finished we spent the rest of the afternoon riding our bikes, while pretending like we were in the movie Now and Then (anyone remember that?!?), and playing on the beach. What I loved about staying at The Rathershacks was that each “shack” is adjoined by the cutest courtyard filled with tables, cute art on the fence, and gorgeous flowers. It was a great place to hang out with a glass of wine after the beach! We totally took advantage of the area for outfit photos, too (it may look familiar from this post).

On our last night we headed back into Charleston for dinner and drinks at Stars Restaurant followed by dessert at Jeni’s Ice Creams. If I could eat Jeni’s every day, I totally would. But then again, I would weigh about 500 pounds, soon I guess I’m glad there isn’t one near me!

Before we said our goodbyes on Wednesday, L.Mae Boutique hosted us for brunch and shopping in their new pop up boutique. It was great having one last brunch with my ladies and to finally be able to meet the girls behind the boutique that I have worked with for quite some time. And how adorable is their new pop up boutique. I thought it was the cutest idea everrrrr!

It was such a fun few days with these ladies (me, Shelby of Glitter and Gingham, Kristin of Living In Color Print, Ashley of Side Smile Style, Jessica of My Style Vita, Cathy of Poor Little It Girl, and Bethany of B Soup) and we are already plotting our next blogger trip! 

P.S. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started up today for cardholders! Be sure to shop the sale before all of the good items sell out! If you’re not a cardholder, don’t worry- the sale opens up to everyone on July 17th. I’ll be back then rounding up my favorites.
