Yomi Adegoke: “Society Must Leave Women Who Dare To Pick Pickiness Alone”

I like to consider myself a pretty laid-back, low-maintenance person. In fact, there are only two things in life I would admit to being fussy about: food and men. But as it so happens, these are the two areas in which most people deplore pickiness. 

A big fuss was made over fussiness recently, after a video went viral on Valentine’s Day, courtesy of comedian and entrepreneur B Simone. In it, she gave some unsolicited dating advice to women of today, claiming that the issue with the millennial dating scene was not ghosting or situationships or Hinge hiding all the semi-decent

Crocs of gold: celebrity fans fuel frenzy to buy used ‘ugly clogs’ | Fashion

Once named among Time magazine’s 50 worst inventions, Crocs have long been one of those love-them-or-hate -them accessories. But now the plastic clogs are being heralded as the shoes of the summer and are in such high demand that they are giving trainers a run for their money in the secondhand market.

Last week, rapper Nicki Minaj posted a picture of herself on Instagram wearing a pair of hot pink bedazzled Crocs, customised with Jibbitz (bespoke charms made by Crocs) including Chanel’s double-C logo. The post caused the Crocs website to crash and saw a 4,900% spike in

Halle Berry slams child support ‘extortion’ | Entertainment

Halle Berry has branded her child support payments “extortion” in an apparent swipe at Gabriel Aubry.

The 54-year-old actress was ordered to pay the 44-year-old model $16,000 a month in 2014 to help with their daughter Nahla, now 12, and she has suggested she doesn’t think the payments are “reasonable” and called for both parents to take financial responsibility for their children.

Earlier in the week, Halle had shared a meme on Instagram which read “women don’t owe you s***”, attracting a lot of comments from her followers.

And in response, the ‘Cloud Atlass’ actress – who didn’t mention Gabriel

Multilateralism Is Back In Fashion At The White House : NPR

The Biden administration has been rejoining international organizations, arguing that it is best to have a seat at the table to resolve global issues.



STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

President Biden’s administration is changing the way the U.S. works with other nations – maybe restoring is a better word, like when it restored funds for the World Health Organization. NPR’s Michele Kelemen examines a less noticed effort.

MICHELE KELEMEN, BYLINE: For decades, the U.S. was the largest donor to UNRWA, the U.N. agency that runs schools and hospitals for Palestinians. That changed in the Trump administration, which cut off funding to Palestinians

On Tuesday, Uniqlo’s Japanese parent company Fast Retailing became the world’s most valuable fashion business by market capitalisation, surpassing Spain’s Inditex, owner of fast-fashion megabrand Zara.

Fast Retailing’s share price has risen steadily since August, driven by several factors. For a start, casualwear giant Uniqlo, which accounts for more than 83 percent

BHDM Design Founder Dan Mazzarini Talks Brand Narrative on ‘DesignBiz’

What is designer Dan Mazzarini’s secret to success? “Brand narrative,” he told Editor in Chief Cindy Allen (@thecindygram) on Thursday night’s episode of DesignBiz, Interior Design’s twice-weekly Instagram Live series.

That lesson is one of many that Mazzarini (@danmazzarini) learned 20 years ago, when he was a new designer cutting his teeth at a retail-centric firm in Chicago. “Twenty years ago was the heyday of retail,” he said. “Everybody had money to spend at the store. Macy’s was huge.” But when retail suffered a dip in the early 2000s, the firm took a hit. As

Woman spots man’s alleged creepy behavior in gym mirror: ‘What do you think?’

A woman on TikTok is sharing a jarring video of a man’s alleged creepy gym behavior after she claims she saw him take photos of her while she was working out. 

TikTok user @juliaapic, who goes by Julia, is a fitness and lifestyle influencer on the platform. But her most viral video isn’t an exercise tutorial or recipe video — it’s a clip of the time she allegedly caught a stranger at the gym taking a photo of her.

“Was filming a workout back in January when this happened,” Julia wrote in the TikTok.
