Thandie Newton Discusses Embracing Otherness


I believe this is a very important video, in light of recent events: Ferguson, the death of Eric Gardner, the shooting of Malala Yousafzai, among others. Actress, Thandie Newton, took to the stage in 2011 to discuss the long journey she took to finally embrace herself. Take thirteen minutes out of your day to watch, you will be inspired!

"By the age of 5, I was aware I didn't fit. I was the black, atheist kid, in the all white Catholic school, run by nuns. I was an anomaly"

The Official Colour of 2015: Get The Look

Ta da! The colour of 2015 is Marsala, and Pantone promises it to be "robust, earthy, sophisticated, hearty, stylish and fulfilling". Sounds like a colour you need in your life... here's some products that will meet those Marsala-y needs!

Spice It Up Lipstick, Mac

This is such a lovely lipstick, and oozes marsala. It's a "lustre" lipstick, so if you're not into a bold red lip, this could be right up your street as it is a dewy formula. It's also pretty subdued and wearable, just like Pantone's colour of the year. Definitely something everyone can wear!

New York Eyeshadow, Nars

I do love myself some Nars eyeshadows, and New York is going to be right on trend for 2015! A beautiful bruised red colour that will be perfect to warm up a smoky eye

Downtown Brown Nailpolish, Essie

This is like no other brown... mostly because it's not brown but a lovely rich mahogany that is practically the same as marsala. Since it's super festive, it'll look perfect with a LBD and heels for a Christmas party.
