Ku­dos to the South­ern Liv­ing staff for fea­tur­ing eco-belle Bianca Araneta (Septem­ber 2010). Know­ing that some­one as high-pro­file and glam­orous as Bianca Araneta is concerned on mak­ing the world a greener place as much as I do, is re­ally em­pow­er­ing. Af­ter all, she could well af­ford to not care given her so­cial sta­tus. She's def­i­nitely a breath of fresh air, es­pe­cially since she re­volves around a world that cham­pi­ons con­sump­tion. So great job South­ern Liv­ing for fea­tur­ing some­one who's got both beauty and sub­stance. The fea­ture on green prod­ucts is en­gross­ing, as well. Hope to see more events and hap­pen­ing this side of the metro more. Keep it up, South­ern Liv­ing.

- An­gel Fer­nan­dez It was brought to our at­ten­tion that the ar­ti­cle “Truly South­ern,” (South­ern Home, De­cem­ber 2010) caused some con­fu­sion to read­ers. Our se­nior ed­i­to­rial as­sis­tant Dianne Pineda wrote that Dim­ples Bala­guer-La'O put up suc­cess­ful busi­nesses such as Noth­ing But H20 and “launched Toms, a shoe com­pany that do­nates a por­tion of its pro­ceeds to char­ity.” Ms. Pineda did not in­tend to mislead read­ers into think­ing that Ms. La'O was the one who cre­ated the brand TOMS. TOMS is a US shoe brand founded by Blake My­coskie. It is based in Santa Mon­ica, Cal­i­for­nia and was brought to the coun­try by Ms. La'O.
