New Year, New You

Hoping to make a few lifestyle changes in 2015? Look no further! With Charleston’s local produce, fun fitness opportunities and unique social events, the Lowcountry is the perfect setting for becoming the best version of yourself. This year, kick that long list of crazy resolutions to the curb and try implementing these simple lifestyle changes instead. From your friends at Belmond Charleston Place, this is your 2015 bucket list for health and happiness in the Holy City.

Get Fit

Whether your ideal day of fitness consists of an hour of intense cycling or a jog with picturesque views, Charleston has many resources for getting an enjoyable workout. For cardio amongst Southern scenery, jog the Ravenel Bridge or the Charleston Battery. If hitting the gym is more your style, try joining one of the many fitness centers located downtown, such as Pure Barre, EcoFitness or CharlestonRIDE.

Concierge tip: Follow our customized jogging map for the ultimate cardio experience while enjoying the best parts of Charleston.


Spend More Time Outdoors

This year, take advantage of Charleston’s seaside location by hitting the water for a more unique way to work out. Located off of Coleman Boulevard in Mount Pleasant, Shem Creek is your one-stop-shop for water activities such as kayaking and paddle boarding. While you’re there, enjoy some of the Lowcountry’s best seafood at nearby restaurants.

Eat Local

Treat your body well in 2015 by providing it with the nutrients and fuel that it needs. Skip the processed food and head to restaurants with natural, farm-to-table menu items made with locally grown produce. Also, check out Lowcountry Local First to learn more about where to find yummy farm fresh food in Charleston.

Meet New People

The Spring offers many fun and exciting opportunities for stepping out of your comfort zone and socializing with Charleston locals. From Charleston Fashion Week to  Boone Hall Plantation’s Lowcountry Oyster Festival and the BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival, Charleston’s Spring schedule is the perfect excuse to step outside and enjoy a weekend filled with sipping, shopping and socializing.

Treat Yourself

Last but certainly not least, treat yourself in the new year! It is essential that you find some “me time” this year, to unplug and unwind. Try a calming massage or rejuvenating facial at The Spa at Belmond Charleston Place for the ultimate relaxation experience.

Your 2014 Holiday Gift Guide, Brought to you by The Shops at Belmond Charleston Place

With the holidays just around the corner, it’s easy to let the stress of gift shopping prevail over your holiday cheer. This year, get your shopping done in a flash with a quick trip through the Belmond Charleston Place lobby to find the perfect gift for each special person in your life. Here is your ultimate holiday gift guide, brought to you by The Shops at Belmond Charleston Place.



For Mom:

Every mother deserves to be pampered every once in a while! Spoil Mom this year with 1. a gift card to The Spa at Belmond Charleston Place for a soothing spa experience, or surprise her with a brand new purse. This stylish red 2. shoulder bag from Anne Fontaine or these 3. colorful clutches from Isabella’s Collection are the perfect companions to any festive party this year.

For Dad:

It is often said that Fathers are the most difficult to shop for, but not this year. For a Dad who appreciates fashion and is always on the go, try a classic 4. leather wallet from Louis Vuitton that is sure to last for many holidays to come. If your Father prefers Hawaiian Tees to a suit and tie and wants to live on island time, head to Tommy Bahama for a limited edition poker set or a 5. Hawaiian Tee.

For Aunt:

Gift your Aunt with the ultimate gift of youth … Literally. L’Ocitanne en Provence’s 6. Ultimate Gift of Youth gift set includes a few of their most divine skin care items, complete with face cream, mousse and moisturizer. If you’re looking for something sweetly scented and holiday themed, check out Fresh Produce’s Christmas-themed 7. shea butter hand soaps.

For your Boyfriend:

No more sweaters, socks or video games for your man! Surprise him with an exquisite shaving experience at The Art of Shaving or the 8. Sandalwood razor gift set, complete with shaving components and a fine-bristled brush. If your guy is in need of a new pair of shoes, Sperry TopSider has an impressive nautically-inspired selection to choose from, everything from the classic and casual Boat Shoe to the 9. Gold Cup Authentic Original Venetian shoe.

For your Girlfriend:

From bedazzled wallets to gold encrusted iPad cases and 10. sparkling Keds, Kate Spade truly takes shopping for your special someone to a whole new level. If your girlfriend isn’t so much glitz and glamour, but rather timeless and classic, pick out a 11. Pandora bracelet, such as the Stargazer gift set pictured above, or a personalized charm to show her how much she means to you this season.

For Your Best Friend:

Surprise your best friend with one of today’s biggest fashion trends, a package of highly sought-after 12. Flash Tattoos from Everything but Water. The craze behind these metallic, jewelry-inspired temporary tattoos is plausible; they are the perfect compliment to any outfit. If she loves all things glitzy, glamorous and fashionable, head to Calypso St. Barth to shop lovely wristlets and 13. metallic notebooks for your BFF.

For Grandmother:

This year, gift Grandmother with a beautiful vase of 14. hand-arranged flowers from BLOOM at Belmond Charleston Place, or opt for Brighton’s beautiful 15. Victoria necklace.

For your co-workers:

Avoid being the Scrooge at your office holiday party by gifting your co-workers with something small but thoughtful. Check out The VSOE Boutique for Charleston-inspired knick knacks like the 16. glass Charleston cup, Colonial Candle for their 17. snowday candle that captures winter’s most exquisite scent, or one of many gift sets to choose from at 18. Godiva Chocolatier. After all, a little chocolate goes a long way.

For You:

Lastly, don’t forget to treat yourself this season! Make jaws drop at your holiday parties with these select styles from 19. St. John and 20. White House/Black Market. If you’re planning to spend your holiday season traveling, it may be time to invest in some 21. new luggage at Mori Classics. Their new Rimowa sports trunk offers extra storage in a versatile shape, perfect for any long winter trip.
