I create mindful experiences...

Hello! I am Shari L. Sweeney, the bubbly writer behind A Certain Aesthetic. I live in the Bull City aka Durham, North Carolina where I'm also the owner of Truly Aesthetic, which is a holistic and eco-luxe bath and body care concept that creates mindful experiences. Alongside Truly Aesthetic, I’m a self taught photographer where I specialize in still life concepts such as food, products and lifestyle.

All of my life, I've had a devout love of things that light up the senses from all angles. I am food savant, practitioner of holistic modalities, avid #blerd gamer, underground music aficionado and a lover of travel to places near and far.

Here on A Certain Aesthetic, I will bestow upon you a multifaceted life, where the ordinary is made extraordinary. I’m serving delectable culture and beautiful experiences. I hope you're ready to indulge!
