Most of the time, I like to have a plan. I like to have a general idea of what I will be doing otherwise I end up wasting a lot of time–that makes sense, right? Well, once I set foot in Paris my “plan” of when and where I would be went straight out the […]

Eiffel Tower by Night

Unicorns are real and Pairs is proof of it, period. How can a girl fall in love with a city–with its streets, its buildings, walls, its rainy days, atmosphere and people so fast?

I visited Mon Amie Morning Café in Hub City just days before traveling to Paris and anxiously await the opening of Crêpe du Jour in Downtown Greenville. I am a huge fan of breakfast–in fact, I could […]

What do fast cars, golf and charity have in common?

This past Thursday, April 20th, I had the opportunity to spend my morning among BMW Executives, board members, volunteers, BMW Performance Center + Charity Pro-Am staff and a sea of representatives from 18 different charities in Upstate, South Carolina. The occasion? Media Day for the 2017 BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation. Several television […]
