Until the Fatted Bull Moos!

Pre-Lenten partying and feasting is a custom that dates back to the Middle Ages. One of the oldest symbols of that tradition is the fatted bull, representing the last meat eaten before the fasting of Lent begins. The fatted bull, or “Boeuf Gras,” is a representation of Mardi Gras in New Orleans today, although there […]

Prepare to Get Warm

With the new year upon us and the heightened enthusiasm about getting fit, don’t underestimate the importance of a good warm-up before working out. The warm-up should be part of every exercise routine for several reasons:  Warming up your muscles will increase the blood flow to the working muscles. In addition to increased blood flow, […]

Morning Miracles

As a fan of eating from the moment I wake up, I never understood why breakfast has a bad rap, skipped by many or replaced with a cup of coffee and a burnt toaster strudel topped with icing from a plastic tube. Such a shame, considering the wealth of gourmet options we have for beautiful […]

On the Cover

Though history has proven that Marie Antoinette did not, in fact, say, “Let them eat cake!” there are few among us who can resist those beautifully decorated sugary confections. So, as we’ve all thought at one time or another, if you can’t beat them, join them! On March 21, join BRAVO and the New Orleans […]

Along the Avenue

’Twas and ’Tis the season! As we march toward Mardi Gras there’s been no shortage of merriment and mirth. All those along the avenue, places and boulevards pulled out their prettiest pumps for deb parties, the opening of both the Mahalia Jackson Theatre and the Zulu exhibitions at the Presbytre, and moved right on to […]

Robert Logan V

The world’s youth is the world’s future, and older generations can smile – and relax a little – when those young men and women look to the future with a sense of purpose. Robert Logan V is a 17-year-old senior – and 12-year veteran – at Lusher Charter School. He has served as president and secretary of […]

Smallpage – Gilly Wedding

Although Kathryn “Katie” Carrère Smallpage and Thomas Cameron Gilly both grew up in New Orleans, and knew each other casually in high school, it took old-fashioned college football pride to finally unite the happy couple. “We started really hanging out our junior year during football season,” says the bride. While attending the University of Alabama, […]

Richeson- Scoggin Wedding

M.I. and Guy Scoggin met in the Newcomb Quad of Tulane University at a Pan-Hellenic event. She called him Joe incorrectly for at least a month! Finally she got it right and after dating for a while he asked her to marry him at the old Civic Theatre. South Pacific was playing and when the […]

Take a Stay-cation

We are all sick of hearing about it – “Times are tough.” We get it already. But when economic troubles become too much to handle and we need to get away from everything, if only for a weekend, it helps to have some thrifty options. So, in the event that the daily grind gets you further […]

Lash Out

Each year, I fall prey to glossy ads of the new “it” mascara. Truth is, most of those long lashes are faux and have been digitally enhanced; yet still I’m seduced by the ads. With so much new technology in mascara these days, I wanted to see which ones really work. So the best mascara? […]
