Pigging Out in Charleston – Swig & Swine

If it isn’t obvious by now, my family loves food. Since I basically spent all of June staying with my sister in Charleston, we had plenty of opportunities for eating. If you’re a bbq lover like we are, you need to try Swig & Swine.

What’s not to love about a place where the servers are wearing shirts like “I like pig butt and I cannot lie” and “My brisket brings all the girls to the yard”?  Continue reading

A Book List for Bookworms

The fall semester starts up this week (seriously, where did the summer go??), so I’m bringing you a post that is a little different than what I usually do. About a month ago I was asked to take over an American literature class that focuses on fiction from 1899/1900. This is a little out of my comfort zone, but I’m really excited to have a class full of actual English majors and read a few books that are completely new to me (I hadn’t even heard of Pauline Hopkins until now!).

A Doughnut a Day

I like wearing doughnuts almost as much as I love eating them, which means I immediately fell in love with this doughnut tank from elle & k boutique.

Tank - elle & k boutique ($20); shoes and skirt - Old Navy

I usually wear this tank with jean shorts, but I thought it would be fun to dress it up and bring out the colors of the doughnuts with some bright blue and pink. This doughnut tank never fails to make people laugh and/or smile!

Although this tank by itself is adorable, I also have to brag on elle & k because I think it’s important to support small businesses, especially ones with great service. They offer free shipping (hooray!) and my tank arrived wrapped in pink tissue paper with an oh-so-cute koozie and a handwritten note! They sure know how to treat a lady right! 🙂

Satisfy a Sweet Tooth in Charleston

I have a massive sweet tooth. I love all food, but it seems like doughnuts, cookies, and cupcakes have a hypnotizing effect on me. My mom is an amazing baker, which is probably the reason I appreciate a moist, buttery cake buried beneath an inch of icing. Cakes in the Lauzon household are no joke. They are also one of the reasons I force myself to run. Continue reading
