In 1634, two ships full of British settlers landed at St. Clement’s Island and colonized the Province of Maryland. Among those settlers was the Calvert family, credited with both founding Maryland and inspiring our iconic state flag with its family crests.
Every year on March 25, we celebrate that founding with an official state holiday and by waving Maryland’s bold and unique flag in all its red, white, black and gold glory. Nearly four centuries later, thanks in large part to a motivated graduate from UMD, we can wear that flag too.
A popular shoe store in Towson has moved its digs to Baltimore City this month and is already booming with business.
Ann Parker is a graphic designer by training but found it difficult to connect with technology. On a whim, she took a ceramics class one semester at Towson University where she received her undergraduate degree.

Seven years ago, Julianna Margulies helped redefine what it’s like to dress as a professional woman, acting as high-profile lawyer Alicia Florrick on the television show The Good Wife. Her uniquely feminine style strayed from the pantsuits and “dress-like-a-man” ethos that flourished in business at the time. Instead, she wore modest, form-fitting dresses, swirling cloaks, patterned suits, and heels that occasionally lifted her higher than the height of many of her male co-stars. Costume designer Dan Lawson used a variety of brands to dress the show’s characters, but for Margulies’ character, he often favored a New York brand, Lafayette 148.
Gone are the days when we made valentines in school out of paper plates and doilies, relishing guilt-free in the seemingly unlimited craft supplies, and handing out democratically the finished product to everyone we knew. Sure we might celebrate with friends, or secretly hope for a homemade card from the kids, but let’s face it: We are adults now, by golly, and we usually have to narrow it down to one special valentine these days. We all know to book the reservations in advance, and pick up the flowers, but who has time to make a card? Still, nothing says “I love you” quite like that timeless tradition of writing those exact words. Read More →
Buying flowers is a Valentine’s Day standard, and few gifts make someone feel as admired as a big, vibrant bouquet. A study by Rutgers University researchers in 2005 concluded that flowers have both an immediate impact on happiness and a long-term positive effect on mood. People who are regularly around flowers demonstrate a higher sense of life enjoyment and satisfaction. They are a fail-safe gift that everyone loves. But have you ever considered the environmental impact of buying flowers?
