Talk of the South


Getting Away for Grown-Ups

As the winter months are behind us, I wanted to put together a list of what I think would be an incredibly fun, Southern spring break for adults.

Love, Me

Show yourself some love this year, Birmingham. The only person who can truly make you happy is you.

Resolution Revolution

New Year’s resolutions: they’re infamously easy to break. We have the best intentions, but no follow-through plan that we can commit to.

Workplace Wonderland

If you find yourself at the helm of throwing the office holiday party, here are four tips to elevating the look and feel of your soiree.

No Kids Allowed

Fall is my favorite time of year. It hosts my birthday, college football, the constant reruns of Hocus Pocus, which leads to the crowning jewel: Halloween. So while the babes sleep, I think the adults should come out to play!

Dorm Design

You don’t have to break the bank or be a design star to have a unique and stylish dorm or apartment. All it takes is a little ambition, effort, and execution to make sure you enjoy your new college living.

Schoolhouse Rock

With the start of a new academic year comes the supply lists for notebooks, calculators, and No. 2 pencils. These are the requirements for a successful student, but the real goal is a fresh back-to-school look.

New Year, New Me

My usual words for you revolve around entertaining, celebrations, or other ways to enjoy life in style. A couple of times each year I take a different path and share with you more personal experiences that I hope will touch you and provide advice and encouragement.

Summertime Essentials

To start the season right, one needs five essentials—a new wardrobe staple, an addition to your daily beauty regime, a go-to cocktail for entertaining, a summer anthem, and a trip to somewhere fabulous.

The Found Art of Thank You

You walk to your mailbox (maybe for the first time this week), and you don’t expect anything more than the usual: bills and coupons. But to your surprise, a 4’’ x 5’’ envelope is a sure stand out.
