• 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.

  • A Judgement Free Planet

    When I’m not getting treated to personal training sessions or experimenting with new ways to torture myself with infrared hotboxes, my home gym is one of Hattiesburg’s newest facilities, one that just happens to have won Best Place to Work Out in this year’s Best of the Pine Belt awards – Planet Fitness. 

  • 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.

  • Art*Cetera: Tasha Messer draws people into her hobby

    “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”  – Pablo Picasso

    Given that statement, Picasso probably would have been pretty impressed with Tasha Messer Williams.

  • 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. 

  • Explorations in Photography

     Authentic storytelling doesn’t always need direction. For this year’s Photography feature, we let the professionals take the reins. We supplied a starting point with a list of themes and then allowed the artists to construct their own narratives. What we were given is a series of short vignettes that tell us not only about the theme chosen, but also the photographers themselves. 

     

  • what’s in my carry on?

    Summer is upon us. If you’re anything like me, you have been bitten by the travel bug something serious. I get stir crazy in the summer and chances are I am trying to get as far away from the South as possible. So, aside from the obvious TSA requirements, what are some of my other summer travel essentials? Let’s take a look.
