Hi there! Welcome to Tasty Southern Chic, a fashion and lifestyle blog by Maria Murphy Creative!
I’m Maria Murphy – Designer, Stylist, Blogger and Entrepreneur – and I am the creative voice behind all that you’ll see throughout these pages.
I have 7+ years of experience in the broadcast industry and I just recently 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 (just to name a few) and about 2 years ago 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 – I grew up in North Carolina with 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). 🙂
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!
