Hooray!! It’s Friday, Friday, Friday!!! Once again, I’ve compiled a list of five things you might’ve missed this week, that I think you ought to know about. Here are my 5 Finds 4 Friday:
R.I.P. Burt Shaviz
The co-founder of Burt’s Bees sadly passed away at age 80. Read more about his passing at Jezebel.com.
I think I just found my new job hunting playlist
The Ultimate F#@k You, Pay Me Playlist, presented by Buzzfeed. I think most of the songs I would’ve added were included. Check it out to see if they included your faves!
Awesome Movie Alert
If you haven’t seen this amazing documentary on the life of Nina Simone, what are you waiting for? Check it out on Netflix.
Dear white people in the fashion world! Please don’t take this the wrong way but it’s time you people get your shit right when it comes to our complexion! Why do I have to bring my own makeup to a professional show when all the other white girls don’t have to do anything but show up wtf! Don’t try to make me feel bad because I am blue black its 2015 go to Mac, Bobbi Brown, Makeup forever, Iman cosmetic, black opal, even Lancôme and Clinique carried them plus so much more. there’s so much options our there for dark skin tones today. A good makeup artist would come prepare and do there research before coming to work because often time you know what to expect especially at a show! Stop apologizing it’s insulting and disrespectful to me and my race it doesn’t help, seriously! Make an effort at least! That goes for NYC, London, Milan, Paris and Cape Town plus everywhere else that have issues with black skin tones. Just because you only book a few of us doesn’t mean you have the right to make us look ratchet. I’m tired of complaining about not getting book as a black model and I’m definitely super tired of apologizing for my blackness!!!! Fashion is art, art is never racist it should be inclusive of all not only white people, shit we started fashion in Africa and you modernize and copy it! Why can’t we be part of fashion fully and equally?
