Thank you for stumbling upon my little corner of the internet! Currently residing in the lovely small town of Hartsville, South Carolina and enjoying the small town life and embracing all the charms of living in South Carolina. Back in 2015, I started Southern'spirations as a creative outlet during my Senior year at High Point University, where I studied biochemistry along with a minor in the studio arts. And well, if you can't tell my creativity and passions paved the way. After a couple of years in the biotech industry and corporate marketing, I decided to take a leap of faith, and with the unyielding support of my parents, I turned my talents into my very own business.
Southern'spirations brand can be split into three categories, the original being the lifestyle blog where I share my favorite craft projects, preppy fashion and brands I am loving. Then there is my marketing and social media services. I love helping businesses create new branding or enhance and create consistency throughout their business from print to digital media.
Lastly and the newest addition is the Southern'spirations retail space located in Fleur De Lis in Hartsville SC, booth #23. This project is extra special because I am working with my mom, Laura Giese, to bring the brand to life. I create original art and prints while my mom gives old furniture pieces new life and creates custom items like pillows or napkins. Along with hand-picked home decor from my favorite wholesalers. I wanted to create a space that sparks creativity and brings joy to everyone that stops by!
The other day I was asked what do I love the most? Blogging, client marketing projects or the store? All I could say was I love creating! All three make me do a happy dance, and I can't imagine not doing one of them.
