In the summer of 2013, I moved to Chicago, exactly one month to the day that I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design. I moved to Chicago with no friends, family, or a full-time job. Yikes right! While I did not have the people, place, or things that make adapting to a new place easier, I did have a few things going for me that made my transition into this new place a little bit easier. So what did I have going for me?
In the midst of this seeking, I started to find myself becoming a resource to others who were also new to the city or just looking for fun, free, and unique things to do while they were traveling to Chicago.
And thus, The Haute Seeker was born! I became a blogger and focused my content on things that I couldn’t find that I wanted others to have easier access to when they first move to a big city like Chicago. I started to blog about fashion and my personal style, arts, culture, food, community, and things to do. Starting this lifestyle blog has been personally challenging, and fulfilling. I have been able to create content that is not just about my personal journey but telling the stories of others. Sharing all the things that make Chicago so great!
Whether you are new to Chicago or have lived here all of your life, I hope that you use my lifestyle blog as your guide to seeking the unseen, fun, and unique in Chicago.
