A Weekend at The Ivey's Hotel in Charlotte NC!

An icon of beauty & excellence! That is the perfect way to describe this newer boutique hotel located in the heart of uptown Charlotte, NC. The Ivey's Hotel will amaze you with it's elegance & charm bringing Parisian glam and contemporary touches together. I had the pleasure of spending the weekend there with Paper Meets Pearl while working on commercial work in Charlotte. 



"The Ivey’s Hotel is the result of an extensive, multi-million dollar renovation. Carefully preserved, the building’s landmark characteristics sparked the vision to create a luxury boutique property that evokes the history of Charlotte and surpasses all expectations for distinguished travelers.
Charlotte was originally built at the crossroads of two Native American trading paths – Trade and Tryon. The Ivey’s Hotel is located one block away from this historic intersection, which is still the heart of Charlotte’s Uptown central business district and entertainment zone.
Famed architect William H. Peeps originally designed the historic Ivey’s building, which debuted in the early 1900s as the home of J.B. Ivey & Company Department Store."





Our room was located on the second floor at the corners of Tryon & W 5th Street with 2 large windows for viewing. We thoroughly enjoyed our downtime watching the street goers! 

The hotel offers amazing amenities:
  • Business center in our Library Lounge
  • 24-Hour State of the art fitness center
  • Lutron housekeeping system
  • Keyless room and guest floor entry
  • Hand-crafted, custom furniture and light fixtures
  • Frette Italian bedding and linens 
  • Nespresso coffee machines
  • Fully stocked mini bar (wet bar in select rooms)
  • Dean & DeLuca snacks
  • Sony 4K 55”or 65” Flatscreen TVs with Direct TV and Bose sound bars
  • iHome Docking Stations
  • Turndown service
  • Embroidered plush robes and slippers
  • Mistral bath products
  • European style soaking or claw foot tubs (tubs in most rooms)
  • Hair straighteners and dryers


The Library Lounge.
Located on the second floor of the hotel, the Library lounge offers the perfect spot to stop in and grab a complimentary coffee or wine while reading the paper or enjoying the solitude. We stopped in before we headed out each morning and were greeted with an array of coffee, juices, fruits, pastries, & yogurts. The perfect way to start our busy days!


And did I mention The Ivey's is pet friendly?! 
Bring your sweet pooch along so they can enjoy the getaway too!

2 Best Friends + 2 High Schools = GRADUATION

This time 14 YEARS ago, yours truly was preparing for life after graduation. It seems so unreal. I can remember getting our outfits together for graduation pictures and deciding what time we were going to meet because of course we had to go together! We would meet that day at our high school, stand posed for outdoor "casual" photos first, then head to the library for our "formal" shots. I am pretty sure that is the same routine now a days. BUT not for these lovely ladies! Last weekend, I met these two beautiful young ladies, best friends graduating from 2 different high schools. We met at Mepkin Abbey in Monks Corner SC. What an amazing setting as you can see! I had no problem getting laughs from these two and their true personalities came pouring out in each image! They just flowed together so well, I could see why they were best friends! I had so much fun with these young ladies and a HUGE Congrats to them on their graduation!






Aren't they beauties?! What year…

Lipstik Girls!

Bethany had an amazing opportunity to model for Lipstik Girls Clothing 2014 Elisa B. line! From the time she began working with Gooma Models she has wanted to work with this company. Their clothing line for young girls is simply stunning. I was super excited for her to have this opportunity! We chose a downtown / urban style setting for this shoot. I must tell you IT WAS HOT! We were roasting. We kept pushing on and after a few hours, we had finished this amazing shoot. UPDATE: The first image was listed on Itsy.com for Lipstik Girls / Elisa B. clothing. Shreek! You girls truly deserved it!



















Exploring Saint Augustine, Florida

This year for my birthday, we decided to take a girls trip down to St Augustine, Florida! I’m a sucker for a historic city and St Augustine definitely fits that description! Founded in 1565 by Spanish explorers, it is the oldest occupied European-established settlement within the continental US. 
There is so much to explore & experience in St Augustine, that we definitely didn’t get to see everything! We will definitely be returning in the future, but until then, here are some of our favorites in St Augustine!
Where we stayed: Ocean Sands Beach Inn


This hotel was just perfect for our stay! With everything from the convenient pool, easy parking, continental breakfast to the friendly and helpful staff! Not to mention the hotels private beach just across the street! Stay tuned for a full detailed post of our stay coming soon!
Which brings us to.. Vilano Beach!

This beach was so beautiful and relaxing! The sand in some areas was actually sea shells! Definitely a must stop if you’re into …
