Hi there, my name is Cynthia and I created an entertaining and recipe outlet to help you update classic recipes or look for new ways to inspire your next gathering. Darling Down South began in 2015 as a Southern life well explored- whether you are exploring seasonal and fresh recipes, a new travel destination, or reinventing your personal style through home and fashion- we fulfill that for you. Patreon helps me achieve a sustainable income so that I can continue to bring you top-notch content each week with minimal sponsored posts. 

I graduated with a degree in Finance although I always wanted a degree in Journalism. My ultimate career goal was to be an editor in a major women's magazine like Seventeen or Martha Stewart living, instead I started working as a finance process consultant after college. 

Cue why this outlet was created. Deep down I had always hoped that a writing opportunity or a creative director opportunity would open up that I would be suited for, alas, I never had the degree and I didn't have the experience, so I was turned away from publication after corporation for my dream position. 

That's when I started focusing on creating my own magazine covering food, entertaining, home and garden all with a stylish and modern southern twist. 

Four years after starting Darling Down South, I was able to quit consulting and launch into creating full time for you and I wouldn't be here if you weren't here with me every post along the way. 

Let's get down to the financials- I am a Finance major after all. In order to bring videos, top tier photography, new travel, and delicious recipes to your inbox, I need to make a living from it. I work with brands from time to time but it's hard to find someone to sponsor my next historic-condo-with-a-mid-century-modern-but-traditional-twist-renovation or our trip to find the best shack BBQ in the southeast. It's a shame because although it's niche, it's necessary and it's the most exciting content to produce for us! 

When I started this journey, I'll be honest that I was only creating for me, but as our community grew, I realized it's about you and me. As much as I need you guys out there sharing the darling love with everyone, I also need more people to help me bring you new and exciting content. 

Every week, Darling Down South provides engaging storytelling and imagery to inspire your life, wherever you’re geographically located. Consider this your official invite to explore a modern life with us.
