International Women’s Day

It’s one of our favorite days of the year: International Women’s Day.

As a staff of ladies who knows the importance of empowering and supporting fellow women, we like to celebrate this day by rounding up features we’ve done in the past year on local women who are killin’ it.

An Organic Nature

This mother-daughter duo decided to be an entrepreneurial team and  create a floral and decor business in Corinth, Mississippi.

Talbot House Bakery

The Talbot House is a transitional home for women graduating from rehabilitation programs. The Talbot House Bakery provides the opportunity for women to work and make money to support themselves and the house.

A Work of Art

Gallery owner Kim Caron spends her days surrounded by all types of artwork in the Caron Gallery, but we got an inside look at what she displays in her own home.

Haley West Mudpots

This potter left her 9 to 5 job to pursue her art full time and now she’s making hundreds of pieces out of her Como “potting shed.”

Wildflower Art

Anna Chaney’s art incorporates nature in a way that is clean, bright and fun.

Art Adventures with Mrs. Mallory

This local lady is making art fun and different. Whether her student’s are decorating a styrofoam head mold with rhinestones or learning watercolor techniques, art is made and fun is had.

Nostalgia City

Millicent Haggard has a knack for finding vintage clothes, and started Nostalgia City as a way to share her finds in Oxford and beyond.

Local Jewelry Makers

These three local jewelry makers each bring something unique and meaningful to their pieces.

The Earth Lady

Margaret Gratz in #goals. She’s an expert on all things home & garden and just all-around pleasant to visit.

Amplified Beauty

Ripley resident Haley Moffitt not only can apply makeup like the pro she is, but she’s created her own line of makeup and skincare.

The New Doctor in Town

Dr. Ali Parden, who joined Urology Associates in Tupelo, is the first female urogynecologist in the state. She is a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist who completed fellowship training in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery at the University of Alabama School of Medicine in Birmingham. She’s here to break the silence with urogynecology and women. We are here for it!

MC’s Mobile Boutique

Mantachie native Molly Marlin took the truck trend and applied it to fashion- and started MC’s Mobile Boutique.

Chasi Jernigan  & Jessica Monaghan & Emily Brasel

These ladies were part of a body positivity feature and we are proud to have them in our midst!

The Painted Cookie

Over 1 million cookies have passed through Angie Turner’s kitchen, and that number is not slowing down. You have to try one of her sugar cookies if you are ever in Olive Branch. (We have tasted them, they are as delicious as they are pretty!)
