Around Charleston: The Champagne Society
I'm an ambassador for The Champagne Society, so I get some free stuff from them. However, I'm an ambassador because I've been going to events (as a non-ambassador) for a year now and love them!
Calling all Charleston-based momS!
I know you need a night out and an excuse to get all dressed up. Join me at the Champagne Society event on June 27.
You can get details about the event itself from the link above (or in this Insta post) , but Here are a few reasons why I love the Champagne Society —
It’s real, you guys. No one is sugarcoating what it’s like for a mom in today’s world. It’s hard, it’s challenging, and mamas don’t have an easy time of it. At every event we hear from 2-3 women about their experiences navigating career and mom life. And while the events welcome all women — moms to humans, moms to furbabies, non-moms — there is a definite #momlife bend to them.
I’ve met some pretty cool people there and one who has become a solid part of my tribe (hi, K!). I went to my first Champagne Society event in April (I think) 2018 and sat next to someone else who had also come by herself. We ended up chatting and by the end of the night had exchanged phone numbers and the rest is history. She’ll be along on my 40th birthday trip to Fort Lauderdale this August. Tribe, you guys. Tribe. We all need one.
It’s an excuse to get dressed up and actually do my hair. I work from home and I live at the beach. Those things in combination mean I don’t get dressed up very often. That was probably the main thing I liked about working in office - real clothes, fashion, and all that stuff. So, it’s nice to still do that every once in a while.
The events take place at some fun (and generally swanky) places. (See: Maris DeHart, Tradd’s.) Past events have been at art galleries, spas, boutiques, and fitness studios, and of course, other restaurants and event spaces.
The after parties. So these aren’t typically advertised, but they exist - oh, they exist! And this is where you really get to talk to and meet more people.
Free champagne. I mean, it is called the Champagne Society for a reason.
I can’t wait for this upcoming year as an ambassador for this awesome group. I’m looking forward to applying some of my general career skills to help grow this group into something even bigger.
