I think we can all agree that 2020 has not been at all what we expected and although it’s been an extremely strange and somewhat difficult year it has been nice and heartwarming to see so many people supporting small local businesses in whatever way they can. Now more than ever it is so important to rally around these businesses and try to help in any way we are able to. Ladies Lifestyle Network couldn’t be more honored and excited to spotlight some of the best local businesses in the Charlotte area, most of whom we’ve had the pleasure of working and collaborating with once or twice! We ask that you shop small this Holiday season and check out these amazing small businesses and their products/services. Most have given a special promo code just for our readers so be sure to take advantage of those and share this guide with anyone you’d like!

YOUR LIFE IS REALLY WORTH THE FIGHT!
Our passion has always been supporting local and small businesses. When we moved to Charlotte nearly a decade ago, the city had businesses opening left and right offering new experiences. It was our playground, custom-built-adult-style. So many people sought out our recommendations for fun new things to try in the area, so we decided to start a blog…and The Charlitty was born!
Our original intention was to spotlight local restaurants and products. Majority rules, so we decided to branch out and offer the products on our blog directly to our Charlitty Fam.
So here we are on this exciting journey. We plan to bring you products that we love, we trust, and that support small businesses in NC and beyond.
Thank you for taking this journey with us. Always reach out if there is something that you would like to see on our site.
