• What's in my Closet: Skincare Edition

    Hello and Happy New Year, fashionistas! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. With it being the new year, I wanted to shake things up a bit and start this month with something a little different to what I have normally done in the past. I’d like to take this month’s piece and focus on one thing… skincare. Yes, you read that correctly. This month, I am going to give you guys a breakdown of what skincare products I use and what they are specifically used for, as well as go through my daily and nightly skincare routine.

    When the late H. David “Doc” Roberts opened his family’s first grocery store 50 years ago, it’s hard to believe he could have imagined the company’s 50,000 square foot flagship Corner Market store that recently opened in midtown Hattiesburg.

  • More Songs about Buildings (and food)

    "If Music be the food of love - play on!" - William Shakespeare

    Like Music (and Duke Orsino from Shakespeare's mixed-up comedy Twelfth Night, cited above), food can overwhelm and drown even the most ravenous appetite or just a few nibbles from a cornucopia of plates can satiate one and all. However, albums about food, with food on the cover or with food as a title are few and far between. So we sally forth to dine on a smorgasbord of the very best.

    If there’s ever a Zombie Apocalypse, you’re going to want to follow Joseph Hosey. But you better get in line behind the roughly 150 to 200 people who have already alerted him they are coming to him. In his own words, “I’m going to have to hide from all the non-zombies, so you better be quick, because I’m not waiting. I’m going to be disappearing.”

    Bands – really good bands – spend years searching for a way to develop that rare, magical form of communication that allows individual members to feed off one another during a performance without ever having to speak a word.

    Dickey Betts, one of the founding members of The Allman Brothers Band, once compared it to an orchestra being able to perform an entire concerto – blindfolded, and in the dark.

  • A Tynes Family Christmas

    Margaret and David Tynes of Petal got an early start on what has become a number of Christmas traditions while on their honeymoon in Florida 38 years ago. Everywhere they travel they purchase an ornament to bring back.

    That first year the couple bought an ornament – a clear glass pear in which sits a partridge in a pear tree. Each year the ornament has a special place of honor on the couple’s Christmas tree, which up until this year has always been freshly cut. Since building this house, their tree has always been upwards of 12 feet.
