One of the major highlights of our trip to Charleston last week was the amazing hotel we stayed in, Zero George. I got my heart set on staying at the boutique hotel back when we started planning the trip, and luckily, my family kindly indulged me. Look at the pictures though…can you blame me? Full of historical details and simply bursting with charm, Zero George provided everything you could want from a hotel and more – gorgeously furnished rooms, lovely outdoor terraces, and sweet surprises like little bags of treats with our nightly turndown service. We had a great experience in Charleston overall, and Zero George served as the perfect backdrop for our trip. Read on to see more!

A Few Good Links

Zero George-2541

I got back from Charleston on Thursday and wow. We had the greatest time. Charleston is such a picturesque city – full of charm, historical places, and gorgeous architecture. I obviously took about one million pictures and can’t wait to share this upcoming week! We stayed at Zero George, a gorgeous boutique hotel, and I’ll have a full post on that on Monday (sneak peek above!), followed by a Photo Essay and posts on where we ate and what we did. Can’t wait to share!

Now for some links:

Ever wonder how a book goes from manuscript to sitting on the shelf of your local bookstore? On the Penguin Random House blog, they’re doing a series called The Life of a Book that takes you inside the process for one book, through interviews with the editor, marketing team, jacket designer, and more. I’ve always been very interested in book jacket design, so this is super interesting to get even more info beyond that.

Fun to see all of the amazing clothing that the Duchess of Cambridge wore on her and Prince William’s British Royal Tour of India.

I’m totally obsessed with Grady’s Cold Brew and drink it everyday…but who knew it was so easy to make your own at home, with a French press?

Remember when I made alfajores and they were super yummy? Well, if you don’t feel like making your own, a cute online bakery is selling the traditional South American sandwich cookies – they even made a black and white version in honor of the signature NY black and white cookie!

Excited – The Girl on the Train trailer! Do you think it will be good?

Beautiful pictures from Rachel, as always. She makes me want to check out Seattle!

My favorite tote (which I wore in this post), is back! Still love it years later.

These doughnut cookies from Lark and Linen are seriously adorable.

I saw Jacey (Damsel in Dior) wearing the cutest top on Instagram, and had to order it. Yes, I probably have too many peplum tops but I just love them. To me, a peplum adds just the right cute and feminine touch to a could-be-boring tee. I need some casual summer dresses so I also ordered this and this…we’ll see if they fit!

A study suggests that one minute of strenuous exercise is comparable to the benefits gained from 45 minutes of exercise at a slower pace. Crazy, huh?

A little perspective is always a good thing, yes?
