We are a bunch of self-professed bibliophiles at The Southern Coterie… we love to read, collect and talk books. Conversation is often centered around who’s reading what with detailed reviews.
The hint of fall in the Southern air and with cooler temps and shorter days ahead, it's almost time to grab a blanket, a glass of wine or cup…Continue

It’s said that you should never judge a book by its cover. Considering that first impressions are made within 7 seconds of meeting someone, we’ll have to assume that judgment is being dished out rather often. Parents typically seek me out because of things that are going on around the table with their children, however I begin each series of Charm events with the seven essential…Continue

"During the Southern C Summit in May, I met Jamie Meares and her wonderful Furbish team in Charleston," said Lauren Lail. Along with thousands of her social media followers, I have been reading her blog and following her instagram account for years and was thrilled to finally connect in person. We began talking about our love of pattern and decided to collaborate on an exclusive capsule collection for Furbish. I designed a custom pant (the ‘Daft’) and Jacqueline Jacket (in ‘Furbish Pink’)…Continue

All summer I have been consumed with baking and making desserts with seasonal fruits. I even did a show on Jem Radio where I talked about Summer Baking and taking advantage the abundance of seaonsal fruits.
I wanted to bake with a fruit I’d never baked with before and decided to try figs. I started by doing some research into cooking…Continue

Overwhelmed by so many app options? Whether looking for your personal or work life, there are way too many choices! As of June 2014, there were over 1,300,000 apps listed with Apple alone, which makes their catchphrase “there’s an app for that” quite apropos. Ask ten people what their favorite app is and you will likely get ten different replies. Everyone has a recommendation and I have tried my fair share as a mom to four very active children and as a business owner.
Bite and Booze, the blog, radio show, and culinary media conglomerate based in Baton Rouge and run by Jay Ducote, and The Irish House by Chef Matt Murphy in New Orleans, have teamed up to organize a Louisiana Brewers Bash. While Louisiana Craft Brewers Week is slated for September 22-27, 2014, all…Continue

Don’t Blink. That phrase and Kenny Chesney’s song are stuck in my head.

Driving has been a major theme for my family this summer. We kicked off the season in celebration of my older teen gaining her learner’s permit. I’ll admit that I’m still taken aback by her independence in earning it - I was in no hurry for her to drive. Her driver’s manual provided a great deal of rules for the road, but there are certain courtesies that seem to be forgotten in…Continue
