• Let your traveling spirit find a home at Avara Yoga

    There’s a saying in Yoga (don’t worry, it’s not in Sanskrit) that goes something along the lines of the postures that instill the most dread are the ones that are most needed – even instructors aren’t immune.

  • What’s in my Closet: Fashion items I am Thankful For

    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.

  • What's In My Closet: Game Day Edition

    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.

  • Passion brings photography to life: DANNY RAWLS

    Somebody once posed a seemingly obvious question to Danny Rawls: “I like your pictures, but mine don’t look that good – what do you do?”

    Rawls’ reply was one simple word: Passion.

    “You can’t just mash a button and it’s just going to be like you want it,” said Rawls, a Hattiesburg resident who has studied and practiced the art of photography for most of his adult life. “I find myself, sometimes, living and breathing it too much. Everywhere I go I see an image.”

  • What's in Her Closet? Fall Wardrobe Staples

    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! While fall weather in the south doesn’t really start until the end of October, I have decided to take a peek into my closet in order to prepare. Let’s take a look… 

  • Walking The Line

    I’ll admit, I haven’t always been known for my unique sense of style. But I’ve had my moments. Most of the time, I followed the fashion herd with whatever trend was most popular at the time – especially as an impressionable teenager.

  • The Art of Ink

    Art is subjective. It comes in many different styles and forms – watercolor, acrylics, pottery, beads and yarn, abstract, realism. And it means something different to each individual who views it. Some may have a Picasso or that of a local artisan hanging in a place of prominence in their home. Others may have a Ferrari or a Nissan parked in their garage. A lady might wear an exquisite piece of jewelry fashioned out of platinum and precious stones or a colorful creation of wire and beads made by a child.

  • Signature Magazine's Dapper Duos

    Style is described as a distinctive appearance or a fashionable elegance. It doesn’t have to mean fancy. With that said, Signature Magazine presents its 2018 class of stylishly-dressed men and women of the Pine Belt. This is the seventh year for this feature, and while you’ll still find 12 individuals being spotlighted, this year we’ve paired them up into duos to make things a little more interesting.

  • FROM DOO-WOP TO SPRINGSTEEN: Rock ’n’ Roll has been synonymous with style since its inception

    "Fashion is what one wears oneself. What is unfashionable is what other people wear." - Oscar Wilde.

  • Giving style to art

    As a one-time college art major, I understand the style of creations that people consider to be art – from pottery, sculpture, paintings, music, etc.  – whether I agree or not. 

    It’s true that some art looks like you gave paints and a paint brush to a 3-year-old or better yet, strapped a paint brush to a dog’s tail. But it sells for a whole lot more.

    There’s music I don’t care for and some pottery that resembles a sack of potatoes. No, that’s just a concrete piece I had to chisel while at Delta State.
