Photo Friday: Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Tweet Before the day spa and plastic surgery, before facials and girlfriend getaways, there was Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

How to Have a Girls Weekend in Charleston

Tweet One of the best places in the world for a girlfriend getaway is my former home of Charleston, South Carolina.
