letter from the editor

L

ife is always full of surprises! Twists and turns and new opportunities, and with that Charlotte Girl Magazine was created. Welcome to our very first issue of Charlotte Girl Magazine! We are a luxury digital lifestyle magazine. Sharing all things relevant to living a luxury lifestyle. As we all prepare for our American holiday we at CG are thankful to be a part of this bustling city. This November is an election year, and as some may just be thankful that it is over, we are sharing the spirit of America throughout this month’s magazine. In keeping with the “Spirit of America” we share a visit to our Nation’s Capitol, exploring D.C. during the holidays. And the article “The First Ladies of Fashion” is about America’s most iconic 1st ladies style influences. We have Carolina Fashion on Fire sharing local Carolina talent. The models, the designer, photographer, hair and make-up artists are all local. We are favored to have such fabulous talent right here in Charlotte. “12 Days of Christmas” produced by Rita Miles of Charlotte Seen shares this charmed talent again, highlighting our Charlotte Boutiques. Be inspired by the article Cloister Honey going from Hobby to Empire in Less than a Decade. We wish you a fabulous holiday season filled with treasured moments.

Happy Reading ! Colleen Richmond Founder & Editor
