Much to my delight, we’re proud to unveil our annual Spring Fashion issue.
It’s officially time for the boots and scarves to be placed in the back of the closet (until it’s time for the Fall ‘Style’ issue) to make room for brighter colors, shorter sleeves, and open-toed shoes.
Throughout this issue you will see several local boutiques showcasing what they are carrying this season and what trends we should all be on the lookout for as the weather warms up.
From sequins and formal gowns, to casual wear and blue jeans, this issue has every base covered.

My parents are brave. I say that because at the ripe age of 17 and a senior in high school, they let me attend my first-ever music festival. Not a big deal these days, but “back then” it was a HUGE deal. Smart phones were ridiculously expensive and not everyone had one. The “Find my Friend” app didn’t exist and it wasn’t an actual feature on a phone. Google Maps wasn’t very popular so my friend, Ginnie, and I printed out directions from the Mapquest website and took a road atlas along just to be safe.
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.
‘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.
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.
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.
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.”
