Hi there! Welcome to Tasty Southern Chic, a fashion and lifestyle blog by Maria Murphy Creative!
I’m Maria Murphy – Designer, Stylist, Blogger, Entrepreneur, Wife & New Mommy – and I am the creative voice behind all that you’ll see throughout these pages.
I have 8+ years of experience in the broadcast industry and in 2016 I started my own company Maria Murphy Creative where we offer graphic design, styling, art direction and of course content creation, which is what you see here. Through Maria Murphy Creative I work closely with major Lifestyle Networks, such as HGTV, Food Network, & Travel Channel and in early 2015 I decided to start this blog in hopes that I would be able to create my own content based off of all the lifestyle categories I love so much!
FASHION – I’ve always loved fashion. Even as a little girl I would watch runway shows on TV with a pencil and paper and would sketch out my very own designs. My mom taught my sister and I at a young age that “it’s always better to have style then to be in style” and that’s a motto I still live by today.
COOKING -With my mother being from Southern Italy and my father being from Tennessee, I grew up eating some of the best food you could possibly imagine! Therefore, inspiration from both styles are reflected in my cooking. I also try to simplify recipes as much as possible while adding a healthy twist (most of the time..we gotta have our cheat meals)!
HOME & LIFE – I’ve always been passionate about home interiors. I have two architects for parents, which means I pretty much grew up on a construction site. I know how to use power tools and can decorate a room with my eyes closed (ok, not literally… obviously). To me this HOME category also represents how I live my everyday life. From working out and running errands with my husband to entertaining guests and everything in between.
TRAVEL – I have been very fortunate in my life to have been able to travel all over the world. At a young age I started journaling on all of my Travels, so I’m now using this blog as a platform to do the same, and more importantly to share with all of you my discoveries!
I really hope you enjoy what you see here and can find some type of inspiration to live a Tasty, Southern & Chic life!
