New year, new laws… and 2020 ushers in a couple big changes, including a smoking ban on the beach itself.

January 1 is often when new laws take effect, and this time around it’s especially true on the Isle of Palms.

Hopefully these new regulations will lead to our beloved beach being an even healthier, cleaner place and will help protect the marine life just off our shore.

I often take for granted the importance of a proper morning routine. Over the years, I have developed some positive habits which have helped me to stay healthy, even through the most stressful of times. Here are some of the most important habits I perform daily.

Hey Gang,

A good venue manager should be well educated, enthusiastic and proud of the property they represent. If you're not feeling the love, move on to the next as we'll be working with them throughout the entire wedding planning process! When prospecting wedding venues, here are some questions to ask. Don't be shy, as this is one of the most important decisions you'll be making when planning your wedding.

Also known as the Charleston Chinese Lantern Festival, Lights of Magnolia is a visual spectacle never seen before in this part of the world.

It’s described as a “massive garden installation of LED light exhibits,” put on in partnership with the world famous Zigong Lantern Group from Zigong, China.

According to their website, Zigong is the leading Chinese lantern festival in the world. They’ve won numerous international awards, are the largest in China and the biggest lantern festival operating outside of China as well.

It’s that time of year, folks! As Christmas approaches and Hanukkah begins, it’s time again for the season of the ugly sweater. From festive and fun to downright dirty, the internet has a plethora of sweaters for every party-goer. Here is our list of the best ugly sweaters we found on Amazon today.

If you find yourself walking along the High Battery in Downtown Charleston towards the end of the peninsula, look left. There, in the mouth of the Charleston Harbor, you’ll see the black and white lighthouse of Sullivan’s Island.

Known by locals as the Charleston Light, the Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse was built in the early 1960s to replace the light on Morris Island, which was in danger of being destroyed by erosion and has since been restored. The Charleston Light is still a working lighthouse, continuing to serve as a beacon to welcome ships into the Charleston Harbor.

I don’t know about you, but I’m silly with parties this time of year. Whether it’s a Christmas party, office get-together, book club, New Year’s Eve celebration, or a going-away party, it seems like there’s always something going on. Lately, I’ve been trying out new recipes for these things that are fairly easy to do, and I’ve found a lot of winners! Check out the list below for party-friendly recipes that are sure to please.

When thinking of the holiday season, one often conjures up images of snow-covered rooftops and gently smoking chimneys, of horse-drawn sleighs and delighted children opening gifts, of snowball fights and winter bathing suits…. Wait, what?

You heard right, folks. Christmas-themed swimsuits exist. JUST IN CASE.

Okay, maybe you’re celebrating the holidays somewhere warm (like Charleston...or anywhere close to the equator) but these holiday bathing suits still made me chuckle and I hope you will too.

Here are some of the best holiday swimsuits I found on Amazon today.

I’ve lived in Charleston for about six years now and up until the last two, I’ve lived in small apartment complexes. An apartment is great for a lot of reasons, but not ideal for an active dog. Now that I’m in a house, I can just open the door to our backyard and let my spaniel run to her heart’s content, but it wasn’t that easy in an apartment. Most, if not all, apartment complexes have accommodations for pets, like a small yard area or paths where you can take your dog for a walk, but when you’re living in an apartment, a condo, or a townhome, sometimes you have to make a special trip in order to let your dog really get the exercise it needs. Here are a few places that I’ve found in my time here so far that are super fun for dogs -- and their two-legged friends!

Choosing to go back to college and complete your bachelor’s degree is no small decision. It takes determination and commitment. Adult students face unique challenges when they decide to go back to college. Most students have careers and families to consider.

The College of Charleston’s School of Professional Studies designed its degree programs with the professionally oriented adult student in mind.
