Born is a leading manufacturer of comfortable and stylish footwear for men, women and kids. Fashion just isn’t that interested in glamour right now. The defining trends of the past decade have been athleisure and its ironic cousin, normcore. I keep thinking of what Anne Hathaway’s character in The Devil Wears Prada would wear if the film were made today. My best guess is Everlane. She’d run errands for her demanding boss in eco-cool Veja sneakers instead of Jimmy Choo stilettos. Following Brazil’s proclamation of independence from Portugal in 1822, Brazilian national identity was thrown into sharper relief, but its constituent parts remained largely unchanged. A small European elite still dominated Brazil’s political and economic life, although gold had replaced sugar as the principle source of wealth (coffee would later replace gold). But the Brazilian masses still consisted of black slaves and free people of color who labored in gold … Read the rest

Beauty bloggers search out little known, obscure beauty and skin care tips for you, doing all the research you probably don’t have the time to do on your own. These are easy photos to find on the Web-Of Africans looking like savage and barbaric-like, next to their masters clad in Bush boots, safari hats, smoking pipes and carrying a cane, with one-eyed glass for effective measure… Us, our backs bent, practically naked and having on our back the Master’s whole load. These are the images the world sees about us. Whenever cultural videos are played, many people from the West see “Tities” when women are bare-chested, with beads draped pall over them-They look at women’s behind, when women are wearing their cultural skirts-All is porn that which is our culture to us. “As people play the shallow ‘color’ game, African people, on the continent, are in dire economic and political … Read the rest

Today, you don’t have to be a princess or a multi millionaire to be able to dress up nicely. The missionary turned academic C. M. Doke proposed to the conference participants the establishing of An Academy of African Arts; a proposal that was to be re-discovered anew in the 1940s by Jordan Ngubane and Anton Lembede (1914-1947) in Inkundla ya Bantu (Bantu Forum) newspaper, the intellectual forum of the African nationalism of the ANC Youth League. This innovative idea of the Academy was in all probability related to the extraordinary linguistic work Clement Martyn Doke had undertaken in the study of African languages in Southern Africa which he anticipated could inspire African literature(s) in the African languages into creating a renaissance or renascences. Even so, in the midst of multicultural reading it can be a difficult task to find those universal characteristics for some readers. This is a major problem … Read the rest

Today, you don’t have to be a princess or a multi millionaire to be able to dress up nicely. Many people make this mistake and that is wearing jeans or bottoms of any kind that are far too tight creating a belly bulge that is unnecessary. Whether you are thin or bigger, wearing pants or bottoms that are too small for you is not stylish, it is one of the biggest fashion mistakes of the century. Accepting your own size and wearing what fits you properly is the style of 2008. Although church and state are separate in Brazil and, by law, there is freedom of religious belief and expression, a close relationship exists between the Catholic Church and the state. Major Catholic holidays are public holidays and a priest (or bishop) always presides at the inauguration of public buildings. Also, church-based welfare and educational institutions, such as religious seminaries, … Read the rest

Men rarely shop for shoes. Concerning the matter on Wole Soyinka, in a recent letter to the Editor of The Times Literary Supplement , Chinweizu has effectively put that charge to waste, even winning the accent of a later English contributor. Concerning the matter in relation to Diop, Fage has been unable to dislodge the historical finds of Cheikh Anta Diop, precisely because they are irrefutable scientific findings. One thing is absolutely certain, and that is, contemporary European liberal historiography on Africa, at least large portions of it, is merely a continuation, though subtle and hidden, of imperial colonial historiography on Africa. This point needs to be paid attention to. We see a culture that is diverse and colorful, not a tribalized backward peoples. We have the same cultural or whatever practices, same language(Some of these were worked on some of my blogs now), the music, dances, traditional dresses and … Read the rest

In the 20th century, the war and social revolutions brought definite changes to the fashion industry. This marks a turning point in Emma’s own relationship with beauty, which has been fraught with, trying to fit in,” while attending a Catholic boarding school. I was a huge tomboy when I was younger,” Emma says, as she details her journey from unconfident teenager to jobbing model – a career she put a stop to in 2016 when a designer told her, “Sorry, it’s just we’re not used to girls who exercise,” when a pair of trousers didn’t fit her in a London Fashion Week fitting. I have added and rewritten this article and posted it on the FB Wall wherein I found the members very active and interested in the work I provided for them. I posted the same videos(added some) and the history of the Africans of Mzantsi for them, and … Read the rest

The terms “Natural” and “Organic” seem to be spreading like wildfire across the store shelves nationwide, creating a lot of confusion about what it really means to be an organic skin product. Men may like the idea of donning on male tights. But the admission about it can be done in a reserved manner. This is because they are worried on how their ladies will react to the fact that they also likes to use the same kind of leg wear that their ladies may be using. The way ladies can think about men wearing tights is due to how the society has conceptualized the right and wrong criteria of clothing choices. Which is why men would pick out their decision based on the three options: They can choose to keep it even to their girl; they share it to them in secret or they throw cushion to wind and … Read the rest

Fashion is a new trend that is commonly used in different areas, but mostly it talks about the latest clothing and accessories trends. In the hallowed halls of the Northeastern Ivy league campuses, new trends emerged beginning with the trad style. Like the tuxedo, the trad style adopted the traditional style of the suit but was an effort to allow young men to rebel against the strict dress codes they viewed their fathers as having. Despite these dress codes being far more relaxed than anything throughout history, the Ivy league students felt they needed to revolt. Some of us are at loss as to what to do and say given the seemingly overwhelming reality we are immersed into. Many of us,Africans here in Mzantsi, opt-out of our responsibilities to stud, learn and act upon our acquired knowledge. We are simply happy to cost our artificial posts in life, and pass … Read the rest

Your skin is the largest organ in your body. What sets a face serum apart from ordinary skin moisturizer is that it can penetrate the skin deeply because of the size of its molecules, which is smaller than ordinary moisturizers. This penetrative property of serum formulas can refine wrinkles, clear the skin of toxins and remove black spots. In terms of use, the first one is divided into underclothes and over clothes. At the same time, this type also can be divided into social, daily, professional, sports and performance clothing etc. The second one is classified by the garment material and the craftsmanship, such as Chinese clothing, western clothing, embroidery clothing,, knitwear and so on. Despite South Africa’s progress, much work remains to be done before soccer is truly a sport that bridges the country’s pernicious racial divide. The national team, Bafana Bafana, or “the Boys” in Zulu, has only … Read the rest
