Do you ever read Olivia Rae James’ beautiful blog? It’s one of our very favorites and lately, we’ve been eating up her “Charleston, I Love You” series. In it she spotlights interesting creatives in her beautiful town of Charleston, South Carolina. The photos are stunning and the interviews refreshingly insightful. Have you ever been to Charleston? What did you think?
P.S. This Matchbook story Olivia worked on for our July 2011 issue remains a favorite!

From day trips to road trips, travel always makes its way onto a Matchbook girl’s list of New Year’s resolutions. And when you want to find out exactly where to shop for one-of-a-kind goodies and grab the best lunch in town, Angelika Taschen’s sage advice is second to none. Taschen’s Four Cities box set covers all the basics in New York, Paris, London, and Berlin. So Matchbook girls, here’s to happy travels in 2012!
We’ve decided to switch things up around here on The Daily Spark — more content, more often. Sound good to you, girls? Each morning we’ll kick things off with one particularly charming product our team has recently fallen for. This “daily fancy” (among other tantalizing editorial content…) is simply a piece that caught our eye and soared to the top of our wish list. For example, these Cath Kidston cosmetic cases — has floral ever looked so good? We’ve narrowed it down to the quilted number at top and button rose at bottom, but really we want each and every one.
The Matchbook girl always appreciates a pop of color, especially at the seashore! No matter where you’re heading for a little fun in the sun this summer, we suggest lounging with one of these lovelies. We’ve selected a few of our favorites for every budget. Enjoy*
