J and I had a busy weekend prepping for our trip to Vegas for the MAGIC tradeshow on Tuesday. In addition to our weekend wrap-up, we thought we’d start the week off with our first Glitter Girl feature. First, a few pics from the weekend.
Now, for our very first Glitter Girl.
Once a week-ish, we plan to highlight one of our favorite friends/readers/fellow Glitter Girls with a pic and a brief questionnaire. We’ll feature girls who are living in interesting places (from Atlanta to Alaska) and doing interesting things (from stylish stay-at-home moms to corporate ladder-climbers). We hope you enjoy getting to know The Glitter Life community!
Reagan Daly is the advertising manager of Savannah Media, LLC, which houses Connect Savannah and the Savannah Pennysaver. Reagan is a loyal Social and Dish shopper and we absolutely love her style. She is also the wife of a fabulous man (her words!) and mom to an amazing six year old son.

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! We’ll share our packing strategy for a whirlwind 30-hour trip to Vegas tomorrow.
A few months ago, my Atlanta girlfriends and I decided we were long overdue for a road-trip. We decided on Charleston: there’s brunch, shopping and scenery with zero requisite sunless tanning and/or bikini prep. Plus, it’s only a 5 hour drive from Atlanta. Why not? We needed to get away!
This past weekend, we stayed at the brand-new (only seventeen days old when we checked in) Holiday Inn on Meeting Street. Highly recommend. We spent a good bit of time at the hotel bar/restaurant (shocker) called The Meeting Room. Huge thanks to manager, Kevin aka Kev, for taking care of us.
On Saturday morning, we drug ourselves out of bed for brunch at Toast of Charleston. They had us at bottomless mimosas. The food and service were also great.
Saturday night we ventured to Blossom for dinner. Superb service, great ambiance and delicious food. After dinner, we walked to Pearlz (not a typo) for oyster shooters. Don’t knock it til’ you try it…
Needless to say, lots of laughs and good times were had by all. Looking forward to where the road takes us next time!

P.S. I did manage to shop a little between cocktails. Here’s a little gem I picked up at Old Road Mercantile on King Street.
What a weekend! Busy as usual. Here’s a look at what we were up to:
J’s Weekend: J jetted to Lake Wales, FL on Saturday for a Warrior Dash mud run with her boss (and witnessed a proposal!), did a little shopping, and watched the BIG GAME at her fave watering hole, The Ivy.
L’s Weekend: Whew. On the work front, L styled a “Bond Girl” photo shoot for the Statesboro Chamber of Commerce on Thursday and spent all day Friday and Saturday participating in a semi-annual warehouse sale with Threads, another cute Statesboro boutique. In the nightlife department, L and Joe pretty much spent the weekend at their family’s restaurant, Locos Grill & Pub. Between live music Friday and Saturday nights and the Super Bowl on Sunday, Locos was hopping. L’s mom was in town, and (as usual) brought lots of goodies.
Did you guys do anything fun this weekend? Super Bowl parties? Tweet us pics! @glitter_life_xo
WOW, what a great weekend. Shop Social Dish was honored at the Bulldog 100 event as one of the top ten fastest growing businesses started by a University of Georgia graduate. L and Joe (and L’s parents) spent a fantastic night at the awards dinner in Atlanta. J had family obligations but was there in spirit. L participated in a Strategy Cafe roundtable with the other honorees – what an awesome networking opportunity.
Thank you to all of our fantastic friends and customers (and those of you who are BOTH) who have made Social and Dish boutiques a success. We have big plans for 2013, and we can’t wait to share them with you on The Glitter Life.
J was a little under the weather this weekend. Time was spent time resting, snuggling with Jay’s niece and nephews, and updating her mani.
We are back to the grind after a weekend that passed entirely too quickly (as usual). J celebrated her boyfriend Jay’s birthday with a fun dinner complete with photo cake at Kobe Steaks Japanese Restaurant. L had a marathon Saturday afternoon in her office (New Year’s resolutions, we hate you) followed by dinner with Joe and live music at Locos, her family’s restaurant.
Hope you all had a great weekend–tweet us your pics at @glitter_blog_xo. Look for a few posts on fashion and interiors this week…plus a Glitter reunion when we meet up for a buying trip for Social and Dish!
It was a busy busy weekend for these glitter girls. Holiday parties GALORE, birthday party, shopping…’tis the season!
J: This weekend was Jay’s nieces 3rd birthday party (her actual birthday is Friday). This came complete with farm animals and tons of gifts. She’s such a sweet princess and loved every minute. On Sunday, I accompanied my friend Kati to her holiday party at the W Downtown Atlanta. Love spending time with an old college friend!
L: Joe and I were lucky to have a few party invites Friday night–it was nice to spend time with so many good friends. On Saturday morning, we had brunch at a restaurant Joe has been dying to try, Tortuga’s Grille, in Thunderbolt near Savannah. Best shrimp fritters ever, y’all.
We’d be lying if we said that this holiday season feels super duper festive right now. Friday’s school shooting as well as things that have affected each of us personally have taken some of the glitter out of this time of year. If you’re struggling to get into the holiday spirit, it’s okay to regret that party invite and stay in. For some of us, going through the motions is important–it makes us feel normal. Others need more quiet time. So however you choose to deal with everything, remember that there is MUCH to celebrate!
