A few posts ago, I mentioned that I was job hunting! That statement should never be followed with an exclamation mark but I have to be excited about something, right? The location I’ve chosen to relocate to is Charleston, South Carolina. I love this place because of it’s charm, culture, food, and wonderful shopping!
While I’m still looking for a job (so exhausting), I’ve been checking out the real estate in Charleston and figuring out where I might like to live. The killer part of this journey is understanding what is affordable and what isn’t. Rarely do the jobs I apply for give a salary estimate, which adds to the uncertainty of what I can realistically pay for monthly. Many of the apartments available are either incredibly expensive and luxurious or they’re section 8 housing. I’ve found a few places that are in between those two extremes that I can afford but who knows if they have any apartments available.
My list of “must-haves” in an apartment isn’t that crazy I don’t think given my budget of $750. I would love to have a walk-in closet, pool, some sort of security system, small porch, and a Starbucks located near by. I absolutely can’t wait to show you what I do with my first apartment! I have so many ideas I’ll never be able to do it all.
Another thing I’m looking forward to is being able to start taking more personal style photos. I have tons of clothes and a million ways to wear them but there aren’t too many great places near my current location to take good pictures. Charleston is full of perfect little spots to take amazing photos. I’m also getting ready to buy my domain name (and change the name of this blog!) and rebrand it using my own color and texture selections. To compliment this new look, I’ll be needing lots of lovely pictures to share with you and on my Instagram (hint: @wittyandpretty21).
