    Rebecca Rebouche’s Dreamsicle

    “Hustle is the dark horse of creativity, the close cousin of grit and tenacity. Without the hustle, drive, and complete devotion to making things happen, you are average.” Artist and native New Orleanian Rebecca Rebouche’s quote above could not be anymore honest and inspiring. The moment I discovered this quote on the back of issue #2 of the magazine The Great Discontent, I was instantly reminded of why being a creative person is my crash course destiny.

    Alexa King

    Remember the first time I saw our latest profile Alexa King’s (Electraking on Instagram) work earlier this year. Her images have a subtlety and depth in light and color. Alexa’s images truly stand out and I couldn’t help but stalk the film professional/photographer’s eclectic and amazing feed. Honestly, to this day, I still marvel at her cinematic style.

    Cherry Brown

    There’s nothing more naturally n’awlins than burlesque. A few years ago, I was mesmerized by the fantastic “Burlesque Ballroom” show at Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse within the Royal Sonesta Hotel. It was the first time I’d Cherry Brown perform that night, and I remember thinking even back then that she’d be perfect for a feature here on I was thrilled when she agreed to shoot around the Bywater, and I was even more thrilled to get an inside look into the life of such a gifted performer. Below you’ll find our favorites from the day, and some answers to our favorite questions.

    One of our favorite folks, Kathleen Currie, founder of Smoke Perfume Oil, is set to launch her latest unisex scent “RITUAL”. Launching this week to many eager fans of her original release that left folks yearning for more. I had the chance to sample her new scent, and I was blown away by not only it’s unique notes, but also it’s long lasting qualities. Because it’s an oil, and not mixed with any other agent, the impression it leaves on you is like nothing else.

    Jamielyn Arcega & Cellardoor

    Smack dab in the middle of the New Orleans Central Business District resides a magical and mystical place, restaurant and bar, CellarDoor. Open a few short months ago, Cellardoor is located off of Lafayette St. in a seemingly out of place structure that has actually been standing for over 150 years. As I turned the corner directly off of Poydras street to Lafayette, my eyes grew the size of golf balls as I noticed the distinct character and style of the former Swoop-Duggins House that houses Cellardoor. The exterior of the building is as lush as the inside.
