DC PSA: Current Favorites are Now A Diva's Picks Tab

Hello All,




I know my posts have been sporadic as of late, but bare with me as I adjust to blogging, working full time, and now graduate school. In the meantime, I have modified one of my features. I was never a monthly faves person, so I usually posted them at the end of a season anyway. However, I have decided to create a tab call Diva's Picks where I will occasionally update my favorites as they change. This way you can always reference what I'm loving at the moment and don't have to search for the blog post. So click on the tab to see what I'm loving.  I have favorites from podcasts to perfume!

Diva Cover Stories: Ebony Magazine Pay Tribute to Black Models on the Cover of Its September Issue

The Most Beautiful Skin In The World<br />

If you haven't noticed, there's a little black girl magic happening on the magazine stands this month. For years, advocates in the fashion industry have challenged designers to put more women and men of color on the catwalk and editors in chief to put more on their covers especially the famed September issues. Ebony Mag is showing how it's done by putting models that are usually found between the pages of famous magazines on their cover.  Models Chantelle Winnie, Milan Dixon, Fatima Siad, Marquita Pring, Diandra Forrest, and Samantha Archibald look fierce in blacks, whites, leathers and furs on the cover.



Lovely ladies, just lovely.

Diva Cover Stories: Kerry Washington for Self Magazine, September 2015

Kerry

Kerry


Kerry Washington covers the latest issue of Self Magazine where she states she is loving her post pregnancy body. Here is a snippet of her interview: 

“I’ve been really focused on not being ‘back’ to anything, but being the best version of myself right now,” the mom tells SELF in the new September issue. “My body is the site of a miracle now. I don’t want to be pre-miracle.” 
In fact when her manager told her she was “back,” Washington took issue with the phrase.
“She meant it as a total compliment, but we had this great conversation where I was like, ‘You know what? I try really hard not to use that language, because it’s not about going backward in life.'”
