I’m Jaime Huffman
of Charleston Blonde.
Charleston Blonde is much more than just a charming blog title; it’s about a way of life. It is about exploring my passion for travel, fashion, motherhood, and gracious southern living, then sharing it with all of you! The blog is the answer to my followers’ calls for a guide to all the best spots, both new and old, in picturesque Charleston.
Before I moved to The Holy City, I attended the University of South Carolina where I received my degree in Public Relations & Marketing. While at USC, I made an appearance on CBS’s Survivor: China. Shortly after Survivor, I married Erik, a fellow castmate, in a beautiful Charleston wedding surrounded by our family and friends. We are the proud parents of our son, Harper, along with two beloved miniature Aussies named, Fender and Folly. We live in a beautiful home on James Island overlooking the saltwater marsh. From an outside perspective, it may look like I’ve live a charmed life but most of the time my life is pure mayhem. Sometimes it feels like we’re all in the business of perfection. Even our “behind the gram” stories are snippets of a curated life. It’s exhausting and stressful, because it seems so easy. Know what I have learned? Adulting is hard, perfection is impossible, and chaos is beautiful.
I hope you love following me on this adventure as much as I love creating it for you! Welcome to Charleston…and beyond!
