    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

    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.

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

  • Lessons from Santiago

    Lessons from Santiago

    I can’t remember exactly how old I was when I finally sat down and read Ernest Hemingway’s classic novella, The Old Man and the Sea, but it profoundly changed my life and forever altered my definition of what it means to be a man.

    Written from his home in Cuba in 1951, the book was published the following year and was immediately met with critical acclaim.

    “Come quick! I am tasting stars!” - Dom Perignon
     

    Ah, the lovely bubbles, so satisfying as they dance across your tongue. But is this Champagne? Cava? Prosecco? It's sparkling wine first and foremost. What you call it depends on the region where it is grown. 

  • Craft Cocktail: Blue Hawaii

    Craft Cocktail: Blue Hawaii

    Not to be confused with a Blue Hawaiian, which features cream of coconut, the tiki-inspired Blue Hawaii was invented in 1957 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village by head bartender Harry Yee. Originally created to showcase the blue color of Curaçao, our take on this classic ditches the bottled sour mix in lieu of fresh lemon juice and simple syrup. We also kick the party up a notch with the addition of vodka to the Plantation rum base. Not a luau for one, the recipe below serves 3-4 - garnishes NOT optional.
