MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER
I originally founded Stay Sweet in NYC as a creative outlet from my corporate fashion career. But after moving back to my hometown in Charlotte, NC, Stay Sweet evolved into the Southern lifestyle brand it was always meant to be! I strive to share my knowledge and expertise in fashion and clean beauty all combined with my southern roots.
Stay Sweet focuses on southern style and clean beauty which are both near and dear to my heart. When I moved to NYC after college, I started to notice changes in my skin after about a year. I could no longer use makeup I had been using for years without an allergic reaction. After many appointments with the dermatologist, there seemed to be no solution for my chronic dermatitis. I knew it was a wake-up call to reduce the toxins I had been putting on my skin. It took years of trial and error, but I finally was able to get back to a makeup and skincare routine.
By starting this blog, I wanted to help save someone the headache and years of trials that I endured. Although I still have sensitive skin and reactions, it is no where near where it used to be. If I can help just one person through my experiences, I would be deeply humbled.
As far as the fashion piece goes, my experiences range from working at the NYC corporate offices of Ralph Lauren to Victoria’s Secret, and I strive to use this fashion knowledge mixed with my southern roots to give expert advice on how to achieve an effortless Southern lifestyle. I love how the South exudes wholesome quality that you just can’t find anywhere else.
My love for feminine details, elegant photography, and the ease of Southern living are things I will always cherish. So come join me and enjoy some Southern hospitality!
