July Writing Goals

The Bund. Shanghai, China

Nǐ hǎo!
(That’s hello in Mandarin)

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a whole month since we’ve left for China. Where does time go?! I’ve got so much on my mind and so much I want to blog about but not enough time in the day to do it. Why is a day only 24 hours?

So, in the spirit of being accountable for my writing goals and sticking to them, here is a list of what’s to come on the blog this month:

Events: Goodwill Cornerstone Luncheon, Catwalk for a Cause, Charlotte Shopping Tour
Recipes: Adobo Chicken, Batata Harra
Travel: recap of my trip to China, what to pack on a two week trip, Shanghai/Suzhou street style, airplane food

And this is the short list…

My idea notebook is bursting with amazing Charlotte finds and more of my favorite things. Can’t wait to share it all with you!

Until then, hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and an awesome last day of June!


P.S. New sections to the blog and a topic re-organization are coming too! Eek, I’m so excited!

Charlotte Shopping Tour - June 22, 2013

I’m a huge fan of shopping local so when I heard about J. Leigh Events’ Charlotte Shopping Tour, I was all ears!

The basics: get on the bus and shop till you drop at awesome local boutiques with your friends.

The stores: Fifi’s at Lake Norman, Cheeky Bean in Ballantyne, JLC WearHouse, Summerbird, and JT Posh. What a line up!

The goodies: a swag bag, discounts at participating stores, lunch, and more!

There are two pick up locations that you can choose from when purchasing your ticket:

Charlotte pick up at JT Posh (2400 Park Rd., Charlotte, NC)
Lake Norman pick up at Fifi’s (20601 Torrence Chapel Rd., Cornelius, NC)

The tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite and more information can be found on the Charlotte Shopping Tour Facebook event page.

Hope to see you there!!
