#BFFGlamGetaway – Hilton Head Island
As promised, I’m gonna give you the rest of the lowdown on our BFF Glam Getaway experience in the “Low Country”. And for those who don’t know what the “Low Country” is, well, it’s South Carolina’s lower coastline area (I had to look that one up myself on Wikipedia). 😉 This historic and culturally rich area includes a fabulous resort destination called Hilton Head Island which is the scene of this years’ #BFFGlamGetaway. Now, if you look at Hilton Head on a map you would notice that the island surprisingly resembles a shoe…less the stiletto heel of course. It’s true! And you know how much a girl loves shoes, right?! So, what goes great with a pair of shoes you ask? Shopping of course! (Notice how everything always come back to shopping). Not too worry, it will all make sense in a minute… LOL
Now, so if you’ve been following my #BFFGlamGetaway recaps you got a glimpse of the fun that me and the BFF’s had on our 3 day excursion in Hilton Head. From the sparkling nights with NUVO Sparkling Liqueur to the candid conversations with Nicole Garner. To the beach and the BFF Bungalow and a few unexpected yet wonderful highlights sprinkled in like the amazing tablescapes by BFF member Mari of Beyond Greatness Event Planning and the style advice from BFF Kerrie of Virtuous Styls. We had an amazing time throughout and we hadn’t done any shopping yet. Well lovelies, all of that was about to change…
On Saturday morning we met along the beach for the Sunrise by the Surf event where we witnessed the most breathtaking view of the sun rising over the Atlantic Ocean. What a sight to behold… It was truly an amazing experience and I couldn’t think of a better start to a fabulous day of shopping ahead. So after breakfast the ladies got all glammed up for our Diva’s & Discounts (Tanger Takeover) shopping excursion at Tanger Outlets. But, before we headed off for some shopping fun, I had a special surprise for the ladies during the Good Morning Gifting event where I presented each of them with a fab TJ Maxx and Marshall’s shopping bag ($0.99) filled with a few essentials for our BFF Survival Kits. Inside the shopping bag was a 3-pack of Ellen Tracy fuzzy chenille slipper socks from Marshall’s ($5.99) to keep our toes warm this winter, the most divinely scented Mandarin bath soap from TJ Maxx ($3.99), a pair of uber-chic Beauty Secrets Lady Tweezers from Sally Beauty Supply ($0.99), Tangle Taming leave in conditioner from Beautiful Textures to help keep the hair tangles at bay, a fab beach towel to lounge on by the surf in the midday sun from Macy’s ($48.00), and a bottle of Vitamin Water to quench our shopping thirst. 😉
So, now that we had our BFF Survival Kits it was time to do some shopping! Tanger Outlets provided the ladies with complimentary coupon books, a gift card, merchandise rewards, and shopping perks to use during the tour. And yes….we took full advantage of the great deals at the shops. We had a fun time uncovering all of the bargains at stores at Tanger Outlets; such as Ralph Lauren, Coach, Michael Kors, Sak’s Fifth Avenue OFF Saks, Lane Bryant, New York & Company, Kenneth Cole, Bath & Body Works, and many many others. You can see a full directory of shops HERE.
After a fab day of shopping it was time to head back to the Bungalow to catch a few sun rays on the beach before dinner. We snapped a few pics on the beach for a while then we got glammed up yet again headed out to dinner. One thing to note, because Hilton Head is a resort town so the dinner rush hour generally starts around 5PM, so head out a little earlier if you wanna catch the crowds. And, most restaurants and eateries are on the waterfront which makes for some of the most breathtaking views at dinner. I decided to take the ladies to the Shelter Cove Resort to watch the sunset on the bay marina. I absolutely LOVE this area!!! There are plenty of places to shop, eat, catch some live music, and snap a few pics all with the marina serving as the perfect backdrop. So, after our picture taking frenzy, we headed to Scott’s Fish Market on the waterfront to grab a bite to eat. I must declare that Scott’s has the best sea scallops I’ve ever tasted! OMG!!! They are so delish! I always make it a must to drop by Shelter Cove each time I’m in Hilton Head catch the beautiful island sunset and Scott’s is the prefect place for it.
Now it was time to head back to the Bungalow for our Cocktails & Conversations event where Nicole Garner hosted her Pretty Powerful session. BFF Mari setup a cute display for after dinner desserts which featured Posh Pudding (banana, crème, wafers) and N’ the Lime Light (key lime, crème, graham crackers). I must say that nothing goes better with a great conversation about business empowerment than yummy nips and NUVO. Loved it!
The following day it was time to bid the island a farewell. We made our way to Backyard Restaurant for Sunday brunch before hitting the highway. This is my fave place for breakfast! The name “Backyard” comes from the ambiance of the patio area which resembles a quaint backyard scene complete with wood bench swing. Guests can dine outdoors, in the backyard, next to a cozy fire pit. Too fab!!! I opted for the Banana’s Foster from the menu, but the Shrimp & Grit’s were by far the popular dish for the day. Hey, you can’t go wrong with either in my opinion! The ambiance reminds me so much of my grandmother’s home back in Humble, TX. And, they even serve drinks in glass Mason jars…how cute is that?!
What a wonderful time we had in Hilton Head! Thanks to TJ Maxx/Marshall’s, Macy’s, Vitamin Water, and Beautiful Textures for providing the goodies for our Good Morning Gifting event. Huuuuge hugs to all of the BFF ladies for coming to the BFF Glam Getaway. I had such a wonderful time hanging out with you ladies and I look forward to our next excursion! Oh, and if you think this was fab, well, just wait until the next one coming VERY soon! It promises to be even more spectacular the second time around!!!
