Recently, I went to the Tallulah's Designs One Year Anniversary Trunk Show at City Arts Boutique. It showcased Montgomery-native designer Heather William's pieces for late summer and fall. The event was totally chic, complete with a popup bar with a mixologist serving up cocktails, appropriately named "The Tallulah" and "The Seam Ripper", respectively. The designer was so southern and sweet, but don't underestimate her. She was the recipient of the “Regions 2011 New Venture Challenge”, and since its opening in 2011, the Tallulah’s Designs brand is carried in three retailers in two Southern states and has participated in countless fashion events including New Orleans Fashion Week and Birmingham Fashion Week....

Turn off the water while you’re brushing your teeth. Letting the water run when you’re not even using it is such a waste, it’s a small adjustment, but it has a bigger impact than you think. Recycle! There are recycling bins all around campus, everywhere from the HUC to the library, so instead of throwing your Starbucks cup away, throw it in the recycling bin! It takes three seconds of your time, but rather than ending up in a landfill, it could be made into a playground for kids! READ MORE

Five Places to Meet your Next Boyfriend

By Jaime Ritter
April 1, 2012 - 12:56am

Do you feel like every guy you date is a loser? Maybe it’s not them per say, but rather where you meet them. What I’m saying is if you’re picking up guys in a bar, you’re probably going to end up with people that tend to drink and party a ton. If that’s what you’re into, great. However, if you’re looking for something a little more serious, try one of these foolproof spots. Oh, and flirting moves are included. READ MORE
