Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has been hard at work all summer on the U.S. leg of her Speak Now tour, so when the singer finally got a mini-break, she grabbed some friends and treated them to an impromptu getaway!

Fortunately for us, Miss Swift shared all of the intimate photos from her girls-only trip via her blog, and they're gorgeous.

Swift said of the trip:

    "We've been on the Speak Now Tour since February, and it occurred to me a few weeks ago that it would be so incredible to take a mini-vacation! I found a three day window in August and invited all the girls you see onstage (one fiddle player, one backup singer, two dancers, three aerialists) to go with me to one of the places on my list: Charleston, South Carolina."

The Speak Now singer and her friends spent time at the beach and aboard a yacht Swift chartered for the trip. The girls also enjoyed checking out the yummy restaurants in the historic and upmarket seaside community.

Swift is currently in LA continuing her tour, which lasts through the end of November. The busy singer will then hit the road again in Australia and New Zealand in March.
