I’ve been wanting to start posting more “lifestyle” type things, and since I just moved into my first “big girl” apartment, I figured now is a good time to start. I think that I’ll still always post more food/recipe posts than anything else, because that is my true passion, but I’m looking forward to seeing where some new, different types of posts (including travel, home, and maybe fashion) will take Sweet Mayberry. If you’ve been following along for a while, I hope that you’ll stick around!
I had this idea in my head that when I got my first apartment after University, I would be able to decorate it like some of the coolest places on Apartment Therapy – you know, trendy, New York apartments and such. I’m quickly realizing that this is not necessarily the case. First of all, moving is expensive enough with just buying the necessities, let alone more pricey furniture and home accessories. Plus, my new roommate has a bunch of furniture already, and even though our taste does tend to be a little different (and our furniture doesn’t all go together that well) it means that there is no reason for me to buy everything new. And then there is the fact that I’m not even 22 yet and I have a lot of years and probably many more apartments/condos/houses to be able to develop my specific tastes and find items that I love.
So when I do buy new things to have around the apartment, I’m trying to focus on choosing high quality items that make our place look more grown up and that I’ll be able to use for a long time. Like luxurious towels and classy accessories and kitchen tools that I’ll use forever and ever.
