BSB Creates Pink Verbena for Charleston Home Design Inspiration

BSB Creates Pink Verbena for Charleston Home Design Inspiration 2

Tamika took a leap of faith and created Pink Verbena, a platform that inspires us to have our best homes ever. Based in Charlotte, Pink Verbana’s content perfectly appeals to BSBs who are crazy about home improvement and decor. Learn more about Tamika and Pink Verbana in our feature below.

Name:
Tamika Shantel Gadsden (T. Shantel on social media)

Where From?
I’m a New Jersey native, but, I have lived in Philadelphia for 10 years. I relocated to Charleston in March of 2015 to launch pinkverbena.com.

School:
I’m a graduate of New Jersey City University in Jersey City, New Jersey (That name is so redundant, right?) I earned my degree in English and Political Science.

What do you do?
Years ago, many years ago, I started out working as a staffer/assistant speechwriter for the New Jersey Secretary of State’s office. Most recently, I’ve worked as a retail executive with both Target and Trader Joe’s. Upon relocating to South Carolina last Spring, I gave that all up to pursue my dreams of being a full­time entrepreneur.

What’s your connection to Charleston?
My father is a native Charlestonian and both he and my mother retired here in the mid ­ late 1990’s. I actually had to complete my final 3 years of high school right here in the lowcountry when I was younger (St. Andrews Parish H.S. ­ which no longer exists). So I have roots here. I now reside on Wadmalaw Island, South Carolina.

What is pinkverbena.com?
Pinkverbena.com is a discovery platform that’s designed to inspire folks to live their best lives at home. I want to share the best names in Charleston Home Design, Renovation, Remodeling and etc. with the rest of the world. I’m fortunate to live in city that has become a bastion of creativity, technology, innovation and art. There is so much people should learn about Charleston and I hope to be one of the city’s best story tellers! I want to show people how cool it is to live here or make a home here.

What’s your goal for PV?
I set out to inspire my readers. Pure and simple. For me, creating a great home environment is very important. A happy, healthy home brightens your mood, allows for great gatherings at the ol’ homestead and can be a source of pride. Everyone should have a home that they are proud of. Large or small. Owned or leased, you deserve to live beautifully. Hopefully, pinkverbena.com can help with that.
