I am a mother of two, Watson and Rosie. I’m a wife to my childhood sweetheart, Brandon. I’ve lived in the south throughout my entire life. Charleston, SC is our home.

This blog began almost 10 years ago as a passion project—a way to chronicle my life and enjoy a creative outlet. Fast forward to today and here I am… still sharing! I love to give you peeks of current home design projects, links to my favorite shopping finds, bits about my life and what we enjoy doing as a family, and everything in between.

Thank you for being here!

I grew up in Beaufort, SC, a small coastal town in between Charleston and Savannah. I went on to graduate in 2011 with degrees in communications and health from the College of Charleston, then landed a job in development at the Medical University of South Carolina Children’s Hospital.

During my spare time, I launched this blog just for fun, but later in 2014, I left my job with a leap of faith and started to run what is now meganstokes.com in a full-time capacity. Thanks to the continued support of my readers, I’ve since had the opportunity to work with brands that I so admire, like Ballard Designs, Nordstrom, Serena & Lily, Bloomingdale’s, Lilly Pulitzer, Annie Selke, and many more. I love getting to know all of you and am so appreciative of your support!

  • Dream date night in Charleston?
    A walk before dinner along King Street as it's hustling and bustling. Dinner at the bar at Hall's Chophouse, not without the Caramel Cake for dessert. Then we would meet friends for a drink at The Citrus Club rooftop afterwards.
  • Our favorites trips to take are without a doubt down in the islands! Harbour Island, Bahamas and the British Virgin Islands are my top travel destinations.
  • Five top favorite foods?
    Lobster rolls, sushi, a good caesar salad with blackened shrimp, she crab soup, and queso dip!
  • Watson is named after my maternal grandparents, Bill and Patricia Watson. Rosie is named after my fraternal grandmother, Rosemary (Rosie) Stoffel. Their middle names are also family names that stem from Brandon's side!
  • I will never tire of Charleston's incredible beauty at every step.
