CALVIN KLEIN HIGHLIGHTS THE IMMEDIACY OF TIME WITH MOTHER AND DAUGHTER FOR WATCH AD.

Lisa Bonet and daughter Zoe Kravitz look more like sisters in the new Calvin Klein watch and jewelry ad campaign. The fashion brand tweeted about it “Mother daughter #ckminute. @ZoeKravitz + Lisa Bonet, as feat. in the 2016 Calvin Klein Watches + Jewelry campaign,”  and also released a press statement saying the campaign aims to  “highlight the immediacy of time and the richness of relationships.” That my friends, I’d say they.are.spot.on. When one thinks of time and richness of relationships, these two plus Zoe’s dad Lenny Kravitz come to mind. Yasssssss…black don’t crack. Between these actresses, who’s the mother and who’s the daughter?...

ALEXANDRA BURKE TO STAR AS DELORIS IN SISTER ACT THE MUSICAL.

  Still very busy touring with The Bodyguard musical, it doesn’t seem like Alexandra Burke is going to be slowing down anytime soon. Only a few days ago, It was announced that the 2008 X-Factor winner will take centre stage as Deloris Van Cartier in Sister Act, based on the hit movie. Kicking things off at The Curve in Leicester on Saturday the 30th of July, 2016, the UK tour will then move to Grand Theatre in Leeds,  The Palace Theatre in Manchester and many other theatres across the UK and Ireland. The production is being put together by top creatives in the industry including BBC Strictly Come Dancing judge, Craig Revel Horwood who will direct and choreograph the musical and Tony Award winner, Sarah Travis, who will see to the musical supervision and arrangements. Power ballads, big voice, big hair and diva glam…Alexandra Burke is in her element and after watching her slay the role of Rachel Maron in The Bodyguard, all I can do is sing  “I love her, I love her, I love her and where she goes, I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow”…I  C-A-N-N-O-T  W-A-I-T!!!

WORLD AIDS DAY: MEET SETO MCCOY.

WORLD AIDS DAY: MEET SETO MCCOY.

Photo credit: LoveBrownSugar Just the thought you might have H.I.V can leave one feeling so scared, talkless of finally knowing that you’re H.I.V positive. Seto McCoy went through these phases and recently, he took the courageous step and faced his fears. The talented hairstylist and brand manager was diagnosed with H.I.V in June 2015. What happened next is what can be called a true test of strength. Seto immediately took on the role of an advocate so he can help bring more awareness to the virus. Christina Brown of LoveBrownSugar partnered with A DAY WITH HIV, an anti-sigma campaign which provides a platform for people to share their inspirational stories. Click on http://www.lovebrownsugar.com/a-day-with-hiv-seto-mccoy/ to read about how Seto McCoy stamps out H.I.V on a daily basis. Such an inspirational story.   Today, as we unite for World Aids Day, we hope that stories like Seto’s will educate, inspire and encourage more and more people to get tested and for those living with H.I.V to know they’re not alone.

THIS AMERICAN LIFE BY RUDOLF OGOO OKONKWO.

Thumbs up to Rudolf for painting a vivid picture of our broken dreams. Hope this stirs up our minds and gets us thinking. Enjoy! You come to America, young and dashing, on full scholarship, finish school, get a great job, marry a glamorous spouse, have cute children, and retire at a young age with a great pension, portfolio and posture. …And live happily ever after. Yes champ; rub it in. For the rest of you, life abroad is a crest of trajectories. You come into America, by air, by sea, or via a midnight sneak-in across the Mexican border; fooling the Minute Men and Lou Dobbs all at once. You come to school, to join your spouse, to work after winning the Green Card Lottery, or to raise your hand at the airport and claim persecution in your own country because you are a Mormon as well as a leader in MEND. You behold America the beautiful. The triple-decker burgers and the giant cup of coke and cars that are wider than your village road and you wonder what took you so long to get here. You get on with schooling. For now any cheap school will do. You study the things people who came before you say brings money – the things Americans...
