At The Southern C, our demographics span the entire South, from large cities to small towns, each with their own unique blend of Southern culture. This mix is a large part of what makes The Southern C special.
We want to promote this mix by having members in different cities peel back the curtain on the way they conduct business in their town.
This week, sisters and best friends Beth Aschenbach and Danielle Norcross who were born, raised and currently live in the Palm Beach area with their families, will share their favorite spots in Palm Beach on an instagram Tuesday Takeover, on a pinterest board and below. If you aren’t familiar with their sunny perspectives on their lifestyle website, Palm Beach Lately, about their native town then you are missing out!
Describe your brand/business and how it got started:
In 2010, we became really interested in blogs and began following inspiring fashion, home and lifestyle blogs that were mainly being shot in big cities like New York City or San Francisco. After reading and connecting with them for a couple years, we decided to create Palm Beach’s first true lifestyle blog in 2012.
Palm Beach Lately (www.palmbeachlately.com) is the modern online guide and shop featuring Palm Beach’s latest fashion, home, social and travel trends. Their online shop (shop.palmbeachlately.com) is a modern twist on traditional Palm Beach, including cocktail napkins, pillows, art prints, totes, jewelry and more.

Describe a typical day in your town
Beth: Workout, answer emails, schedule upcoming content for blog and photo shoots, ship customer products, meet friends or client for lunch, answer more emails, dinner (My husband and I often eat dinner with Danielle and her family) or attend an event in town, read my latest book and love to end the day with a bubble bath.
Danielle: Wake up, get our girls off to school, get ready, check emails, work on upcoming projects, some days we have photo shoots, run errands, pick up our girls from school, spend time with them before they nap, catch up on any other work or house chores, cook dinner, eat as a family, get the girls to bed, spend time with my husband, read a book and get to bed early.
