Diva Info: Essence Editor-in-Chief Fires Managing Editor



Photobucket


Constance C.R. White, Editor-in-Chief of Essence Magazine, has fired the title’s managing editor Michael Bullerick. Apparently, Bullerick, who is white, had some unsavory things to say about black folks on his private Facebook page, made public by Journal-isms after a tipster sent it to them. The screenshot of his page shows an unflattering caricature of Reverend Al Sharpton with the caption “race pimp,” as well as attacks against the President, labeling him as a radical. Clearly such behavior has no place at a publication like Essence.



When will people learn? Sigh.

I got my hair straightened in celebration of my birthday(which is tomorrow, 4-19-12) and for my six month natural-versary. My hair has grown substantially since my first blow out.

My first blow out, fall 2011.

Diva Talks Culture: Compliment or Cultural Appropriation??


Supposedly, there is a trend going on where Asians are getting their hair chemically treated to achieve afro texture. Now I know this may cause a mixture of reations, but I personally take it as a compliment.
For so many years black women have been treating their hair to achieve a straight look, but now that time has come that others (with the same straight hair we try so hard to have) are seeking and finding beauty, style, and flair in our natural hair.

What do you think, compliment or cultural appropriation?

Diva FOTD: Matte Nudes


This was my FOTD for an event I attended last weekend. I just purchased a matte lipstick from the Revlon Super Lustrous line called Mauve It Over, so I decided to build around that.
