• The Nutcracker: Dec, 8-9 & 14-16

    The magic and wonder of Christmas comes to life in South Mississippi Ballet Theatre’s annual production of The Nutcracker. 

  • Prologue: December

    It has become somewhat of a Christmas tradition here at Signature Magazine. For the last several years, we have reserved space in the December issue to re-publish the 1897 letter penned by veteran newsman Francis Pharcellus Church, editor of the New York Sun, to eight-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon in which he answered her question: “Is there a Santa Claus?”

  • 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.

  • The Long of the Short Story

    As innocuous as it may seem, given the impending pressure of technology and the diminishing amount of personal time, the short story may be our best choice of literature. In just about 30 minutes, one short story can provide the necessary time away from screens and offer you the meditation you are searching for.

  • 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.

  • Signature Recipe Roundup: Thanksgiving Edition

    Thanksgiving and this season of gratitude evokes memories of the family gathered around the dining room table laden with holiday favorites, children dressed as pilgrims and Native Americans or volunteers reaching out across the community to help others. For the past five years, Signature has featured the Thanksgiving traditions, complete with recipes of local families and organizations. This year we’ve pulled all that together for a neat recipe book that our readers also contributed to.

  • Love Win(3)s

    Meet Brady and Christen Raanes, owners of c(3) wines, an endeavor as delicious as it is philanthropic.

     

    A summer release party helped introduce a local couple’s wines to the Greater Hattiesburg area. Brady and Christen Raanes introduced (c)3 wines, a collection of four wines that serve a double purpose – not only are they enjoyable to drink, but funds raised through their sales support four non-profits. 

  • 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.
