By Alexandria Washington

LITTLE ROCK – Little Rock Fashion Week is back again to heat up the runways July 16-21. After much success last summer, Brandon D. Campbell, creator and executive producer of LRFW, and staff are ready to roll out the red carpet on its fourth year. 

"I’m extremely excited about Little Rock Fashion Week 2012. There’s something magical about this year. I can sense that LRFW will be even greater than previous years,” said Campbell. “People have spoke positively about LRFW and have supported our functions throughout the year. Ever since we wrapped LRFW 2011, last July, I’ve been contacted weekly by models wanting to be in LRFW 2012. That speaks volumes of LRFW’s significance and the amount of love that people have for our industry. I’m grateful.”

The Theba Thing: Biking Bliss

The Theba Thing: Biking Bliss

"The Theba Thing" is about stepping out of my comfort zone, meeting new people and trying the things that have been on my mind and heart.

In the fall of 2011, I was bitten by the bike-riding bug. I went biking at Two Rivers Park with my brother and his family visiting from Fayetteville. I knew I was going to “have to” go, because they’re big into outdoor activities.  So I rode one of their extra bikes and I absolutely had the time of my life.

I had no idea these wonderful scenic trails existed so close to where I lived. I sure have been living in a comfortable bubble, which usually means to me, where there are no bugs, no potential for bumps and scratches and plenty of air conditioning.

Nevertheless, I was hooked. I started planning how both my mother and I could enjoy bike riding together, and get my friends in on the action as well.  But first I had to convince mom that she would enjoy it as much as I did.
