‘Tis the season, friends! It’s time to decorate the tree and hang the stockings with care. But, wait…Wasn’t it just summer? How is Christmas already here? This year has flown by. With the holiday season upon us, whether we want to admit it or not, it’s time to do some shopping.
I wasn’t sure where to start when writing this. Some days inspiration hits and I picture myself looking like Stephen King writing his next great thriller. You know; crazed looks and fingers moving so swiftly across the keyboard that everything around you becomes hazy and 100 percent of your focus is on writing. Some days I have to sit in my bedroom with the closet door open and stare into what seems to be a pit of black clothing.
Open my closet and you will notice one thing right off the bat… LOTS of black. It has always been a favorite color of mine, and I feel like I can do so much with it. Thankfully, my alma mater’s colors are black and gold (Southern Miss To The Top!), so I already had a nice stockpile of black clothing to choose from. With football season in full swing, and local boutiques stocking up on the cutest game day attire, it’s hard not to want to buy one of everything in the stores.
Grab your Pumpkin Spice Latte and light your favorite Fall scented candle, folks. My favorite season is slowly approaching and I could not be more excited!

If you haven’t guessed by now, this month’s issue is dedicated to men (cue “Let’s Hear It for the Boy”). I asked Dapper Dozen alum Tyner Sullivan for his go-to essentials.

When a man gets dressed, he puts on a watch. I personally love the Unisex Timex Weekender Fairfield watch. $75
Summer is upon us. If you’re anything like me, you have been bitten by the travel bug something serious. I get stir crazy in the summer and chances are I am trying to get as far away from the South as possible. So, aside from the obvious TSA requirements, what are some of my other summer travel essentials? Let’s take a look.
She’s a single woman and a local attorney. He’s a blonde-haired, 17-month-old little boy who likes to climb on the furniture and loves a good book about tractors.
Their story is an unlikely one, but one that was written in the stars.
Two years ago, Hattiesburg attorney Elizabeth Porter was focused on her growing private practice and her work as a public defender for Forrest County.
She had already spent two years working as an assistant district attorney and despite having achieved much in her young career, Porter still longed for something more.
With football season in full swing, it’s time to put away your everyday handbag, and break out the clear one. Shoutout to Eve Marie’s boutqiue here in Hattiesburg for helping me find the perfect one! So, what are some of my game day essentials?
Let’s start here...
1. PEN AND PAPER
Yes, I carry a notebook and pen with me wherever I go. I’m an Art Director, so when inspiration hits, I am reaching in my bag and grabbing for these little beauties. I’m partial to Rifle Paper Co. and their designs. You can purchase yours at riflepaperco.com for $15
Life in downtown Hattiesburg is all about reinvention. Businesses come and go, spaces are reimagined, and the creative drive of local entrepreneurs brings a steady flow of new life to the ever-changing scene.
So, it came as no surprise when Tom White announced that long-time downtown favorite 206 Front would re-open with a new concept and a new name.
In December 2016, Front Street Bar opened its doors to Hattiesburgers excited to see the return of one of downtown’s favorite destinations.
