In the 20th century, the war and social revolutions brought definite changes to the fashion industry. In case you aren’t already hanging off your sofa every Monday night on Sky Atlantic – Nicole’s latest intense AF thriller The Undoing follows Grace, a New York-based psychiatrist whose life is turned upside down when her doctor husband, Jonathan played by Hugh Grant , goes on the run as a body is discovered in the local neighbourhood. It’s got more twists and turns than the big dipper and to say it’s anxiety-inducing is an understatement as so many personal traumas come to the fore. Distinctive differences in language, in sentence construction and meanings, also teaches one that to hold on to ones’ class prejudices against them or that would be the fatal denial of ones political stance. It also teaches one that to actually overcome ones negative aspects, which requires change in the … Read the rest
In terms of women’s fashion, dress shopping is probably one of the trickiest things a woman has to do. Choosing the right dress for any occasion can spell success or disaster: pick the wrong gown and no amount of accessorizing will fix the mistake. It is the same cults, traditions, customs, music, dance and multi-colored traditional dress and very pity and efficient languages. We dance with cowrie shells or whatever percussion we can attach to our bodies, we gyrate, stomp and stomp the ground, we all clap rhythmically to dance and song, we roll, and sit flat hitting the ground; we all sing together in groups and so forth; the dances are the same, ‘Mtjitjimbo” for we”s say, Amaxhosa, “Mokgibo” in Sesotho; theres the “Domba” snake Dance in the Ndebele, as found in the Zulus; We all dance and sing accompanied by the Drum-drums of all sizes and kinds. We … Read the rest

When it comes to having beautiful skin, it does not have to cost you a fortune in order to purchase all of those chemicals to treat it. There are many different beauty products that you can purchase for your skin, but those skin products are not all natural. As with any minority peoples, there is also the creolization of the native tongues upon the merging of different cultures. Rushdie describes how he and his siblings were able to cleverly amalgamate their native tongue and the language and meanings of the dominant culture to describe the adults they encountered. As a result, they came up with cute names to fit the characters of these persons. The other male tenants in his father’s building he conveniently referred to as Maharaja P and Maharaja B. In Hindi, Maharaja means prince.â€ Because Rushdie referred to them as princes, one would immediately assume that these … Read the rest
Sometimes, the best way to mix up your everyday hairstyle or complete a look is to add some fun accessories. It’s just so easy and really doesn’t require much technical skill in the hairstyling department, which is always music to my ears as someone who is pretty lazy with my hair. I have definitely opted for an eye-catching headband when I wanted to do something to my hair but also wanted to put in minimal effort. Totally foolproof, right?
When it comes to hair accessories, I definitely have always gravitated toward headbands (blame the original Gossip Girl), but I realized recently that I have been sleeping on hair clips. I think the last time I seriously wore a hair clip out in public was when I went through my butterfly-clips phase in the early aughts.
I was in an online shopping black hole just a few weeks ago and … Read the rest
T – Shirts that are made for men should be worn to enhance your body size in order for you to look like a large build man and not a boy. In citing this piece by Chancellor Williams, I am also saying that this applied in many ways to the culture of African South Africans, as I have demonstrated in the Hub prior to this one “South African Culture, Customs and Practices Writ Large: Re-Morphed Cultural Renaissance against Dysfuncritional Existence”, by talking extensively about the Basotho, Swazis, Xhosas, Zulus, Pedis and Vendas in regards to their cultures, customs, traditions and practices, that, they are one, and bear a lot in common that if looked at in that way, form a nation with a cultural, customary, traditional mosaic in a myriad and diverse setting, but common and the same in its manifestations, and embedded within the African Society core and psyche. … Read the rest
Can you ever think of going out of home without wearing a pair of shoes? On the other hand common creams use chemical ingredients and synthetic substances that are not healthy for your skin like parabens, petrolatum, alcohol, fragrances and mineral oil. We acquire power if we know something and or everything about our cultures, etc. When we begin to learn and have a sense and more concrete knowledge about our culture, by looking it as it in it its whole wholesomeness(Holistically), we begin to understand, see and recognize, and observe more similarities in dancing styles, hand-clapping, voicing, circle-formations, and half moon patterns crisscrossing lines, snake-like, and choreographic back and forth movements in-sync and patterned precisely, with a flurry and changing shapes, and forms on and of their same bright and energetic colors, Polyrhythmic syncopated sounds, explosiveness, and rhythm of all the 11(eleven) African people as one unified and diverse, … Read the rest
Let me preface this story by saying that I have been obsessed with crafting since I was a little kid. My parents took me on weekly trips to the craft store, and my bedroom was often covered in glitter and beads. (They weren’t too happy about the mess.) But as life moved forward and I started facing more adult responsibilities with college and eventually my full-time job, I put the hobby on the back burner. But as I scrolled through TikTok recently and saw a plethora of fashion DIYs make their way onto my feed, I knew I had to pull out my crafty hands once again.
In today’s society, we’ve been convinced that everything needs to have an end-all purpose that serves others in materialistic ways. Hobbies should become side hustles, and if you’re creating something, it should either be sold for money or shared to Instagram for likes. … Read the rest
