Hello! I’m a small town Southern girl, living the big city life in Los Angeles. I am mostly known for owning a celebrity + lifestyle PR called SW PR Shop, but on my off days, I’m most likely chasing down the next “Stylish Stay,” a blog series I created to showcase my favorite stylish hotels. I created TYL in 2008 before blogging as a career was even established. My very first blog post featured the luxury, boutique hotel The Cranley in London, following that up with the Duc du Saint Simon in Paris. To this day, luxury boutique hotels are what I find the most exciting because they often combine gorgeous interiors with delicious restaurants and cocktail bars—both places I like to frequent.
The same year I launched my blog, I also started my PR firm, where I continue to represent celebrities, interior designers, chefs, and a legendary, luxury wellness resort. I have lived in Los Angeles for 16 years, but will always call North Carolina home. Though I love fine cuisine as much as the next girl, I’m just as happy with a barbecue sandwich and a Coke.
Dying for more?! Ok, here goes…
I’m obsessed with London and travel there as much as possible.
My favorite boutique hotels are The Kensington in London, Bellevue Syrene in Sorrento, and any Firmdale hotel.
My drink of choice is a Whiskey Sour or Champagne.
My husband of thirteen years still makes me laugh daily.
I compare everything in life to an episode of “Sex and the City.”
