We're Celebrating National Publicist Day

As publicists, we are always looking for a reason to celebrate. So, when we saw “National Publicists Day” on our calendar, we gave ourselves a little pat on the back for all the work we do. We got to thinking… what does being a publicist mean to each of us? And then we thought about people who may be interested in diving into this field or looking to hire an agency. To Liz, it means being a great writer. Our voice is how we communicate our ideas. Great writing is capturing the audience and making them interested in whatever it is we have to say. For Scottie, our role as being connectors is the core of what it means to be a successful publicist. We are the holders of resources in Atlanta and

How to Shop NOW For a Cause

We are firm believers in giving back to the community that has been so good to us. Giving can mean time or money; sometimes both. We've strutted the runway at charity fashion shows, organized art auctions, hosted dinners, stuck yard signs on our lawns (boo!), honored great humanitarians, gala-ed like it's our job and certainly written countless checks -- all for great causes. And we always try to support our friends who sleep in the street to raise money to fight homelessness (I'm looking at you, Marian), walk and run for breast cancer awareness and dance with stars for Alzheimer's. Then there's Partners Card, which simply asks you to shop through November 3. There's no gala to att

Who's Thirsty?

Fall ushers in fresh produce, and the farmers markets are ripe with it. Every Saturday we're either at Morningside, Peachtree or the Carter Center and Sundays find us at Grant Park for our favorite farmers markets. But you can find a farmers market any day. Just head to the Community Farmers Market website. The thing is, when you only shop at the grocery store you can lose track of seasons. And like living in Georgia with 90 degree weather in October doesn't make it hard enough to know what season we're in. Plus you get so much more variety and flavor from fresh produce. Take apples, for example. Unlike the ones you find in the grocery store, which are trucked in from all over the co

Our Must-see Art Picks

There are a ton of great art events going on right now, and you're not going to miss a single one! You know we love art, and we particularly love the local art scene. Which is why we're so excited about these great events happening around town NOW.

Where All The Ladies Are Checking Out Art

We love a good rabble-rouser. So when our pal Gregor Turk reached out to us about his upcoming exhibition, we wanted to share the news. As Atlanta continues to boast a skyline of cranes, Gregor is exploring how systematic development has maligned his neighborhood of Blandtown, through an exhibition of his sculptural installations, works on paper and photography. When Gregor purchased the house that would become his studio in 2003, it was one of hundreds of homes in the area. Today, it's one of the last four original houses still standing. We remember when we first visited his studio to source artwork for a client. What today is the fashionable West Midtown neighborhood was then pretty obs

FEELS LIKE MIAMI HEAT

It's not every day that you get to take a selfie with Grammy award-winning pop star and philanthropist Gloria Estefan, only to discover that she's among the kindest and most humble people you will ever meet. Nor is it everyday that you get to represent your family as your grandpa gets inducted -- with the Estefans -- into the Miami Beach Hall of Fame. But that's exactly what happened to me last week. And of course, I had this great speech prepared that I rehearsed to anyone who would listen: my team, my family, my Uber driver. Then the Miami Beach mayor introduced me, basically saying everything that I planned to say. So stood up and I winged it! But I liked the speech so much that I'm s
