What to Do and Where to Eat in Beaufort, NC

Hi, friends! A couple of weekends ago, Alex and I had a short trip to Beaufort, NC (pronounced “bow-fort”; not to be confused with Beaufort, SC, which is pronounced “b-yew-fort”). It was my first time going to the beach in years, and Beaufort was just lovely. Named “American’s Favorite Town,” Beaufort has both small town charm and rich history, not to mention the waterfront views and amazing food! If you are considering a low-key weekend getaway, I definitely recommend heading out to the coast! In today’s post, I am sharing everything we did and ate.

Elevated Cheese Board with Midtown Olive Oil

Hi, friends! Last year, I visited Midtown Olive Oil and used one of their olive oils to make an olive oil cake for the first time. Since then, Alex and I have become repeat customers and have been using their olive oils and balsamic vinegars at least weekly! I recently went back and picked up a bunch of their new products that are perfect for a cheese or charcuterie board.

NC Triad Adventures (COVID-19 Take)

Hi, friends! If you follow me on Instagram, you know I took a day trip to Winston-Salem a few weeks ago. I went to college in Winston and would frequently visit pre-COVID. Welp, 2020 was weird, as we all know. It was my first time visiting in Winston since January, meaning I hadn’t been to WSNC for 10 whole months, which was definitely a record for me since I started at Salem College 8 years ago (WHAT). Anyways, I figured I would share all the fun things with did in the light of COVID since I find it helpful to see how businesses are operating with social distancing in mind. We actually ventured outside of WSNC for a little bit as well so I am calling this blog Triad Adventures!

To-Go Cocktails in the Triangle

Hi, friends! If you haven’t heard yet, Governor Cooper is now allowing to-go cocktails in NC. I don’t know about you but I am excited to have a fancy cocktail at home and to know that this will bring an extra revenue for so many restaurants bars struggling to stay afloat. In this blog post, I rounded up the places throughout the Triangle offering to-go cocktails currently (Tuesday evening). I’ll continue updating this post as I learn of more!

NC Small Business Holiday Gift Guide

Hi, friends! I am so excited to finally share my holiday gift guide! Gift giving is my love language, and I kid you not when I say I have been working on this holiday gift guide since last year.
