GOAT

8 YEARS TODAY SINCE WE LOST MJ, THE MAN WHO'S MUSIC WILL PULL YOU OUT YOUR BLUES. 

عيد مبارك

RAISING A DELICIOUS GLASS OF MINT TEA TO ALL THOSE CELEBRATING EID TODAY.

WILD THOUGHTS

WE THE BEST MUSIC SOUGHT OUT SANTANA AND DROPPED ANOTHER ONE.

501

LEVIS 501 SHORTS FOR A FIVER. BARGAIN OF THE DAY, BOOTY OF THE DAY.

BELLA HADID x NIKE CORTEZ

"THE CORTEZ IS AMAZING ON ITS OWN, BUT TO BE ABLE TO PUT IT WITH ANY OUTFIT IS SO COOL. YOU CAN MIX AND MATCH IT WITH A BLACK DRESS OR LEVIS OR SWEATPANTS - WHATEVER YOU WANT. I PROBABLY HAVE FIFTY PAIRS OF SNEAKERS. I NEED TO START DONATING THEM, I FEEL BAD HAVING THAT MANY."

HOKUSAI

FINALLY MADE IT DOWN TO THE BRITISH MUSEUM LAST SATURDAY AND RODE THE GREAT WAVE BY HOKUSAI. THE MASTERPIECE WAS WAAAY SMALLER THAN I EXPECTED IN REALITY BUT THIS OFFERING FROM JAPAN'S MOST FAMOUS AND INFLUENTIAL ARTIST WAS BY NO MEANS ANY LESS ENTRANCING.

PEACHES & SCREAM

I'M A LITTLE OBSESSED WITH THE ITV2 SHOW LOVE ISLAND AND HAVE BEEN TUNING IN RELIGIOUSLY SINCE IT STARTED LAST WEEK. I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES WHEN ON THURSDAY I GOT AN INSTA DOUBLE TAP FROM #TEAMKEM MY MOST DROOL WORTHY CONTESTANT. IT SEEMS ESSEX LAD KEM CETINAY WOULD APPROVE OF THE HOUSE OF CB 'CALLIAH' BANDAGE DRESS. EVERYTHING WAS PEACHY AFTER THAT.

FEMINIST POST?

AMBER AIN'T BEATING AROUND THE (ROSE) BUSH.

KAN-YAY

HARDER, BETTER, FASTER, STRONGER. KANYE WEST IS 40.

HAILEY BALDWIN x MAXIM

"CELEBRITY RELATIONSHIPS ARE DEFINITELY EASIER, YOU'RE NEVER WORRIED WHETHER THEY’RE ONLY HANGING OUT WITH YOU BECAUSE THEY WANT TO GET ATTENTION OR BE SEEN? IT CAN BE WEIRD FOR SOMEBODY WHO'S NEVER BEEN IN THIS WORLD BEFORE TO BE SUCKED INTO IT. DATING IS WEIRD, BUT IT'S SO FUN."

BLACK AS NIGHT

I'VE BEEN USING CHARCOAL IN MORE WAYS THAN JUST WITH MY SHISHA LATELY. I'M SURE YOU'VE NOTICED IT'S RECENT BEASTLY PRESENCE IN THE BEAUTY WORLD - KNOWN TO DRAW OUT BACTERIA, POISONS, CHEMICALS AND DIRT, IT HELPS TO ACHIEVE PURIFIED HAIR, A HEALTHIER SCALP AND A FLAWLESS 'I WOKE UP LIKE THIS' COMPLEXION. CHECK OUT MY COAL CRITTERS JUST IN TIME FOR BBQ SEASON, BURN BABY BURN.

I SMELL YOU

I'M A SUCKER FOR A SWEET SMELL AND HAVE BECOME OBSESSED WITH HEM INCENSE. THESE ARE AN AFTER COOKING SAVIOUR, EVERYDAY MOOD LIFTER OR A GO TO FOR SETTING THAT SEXY SCENE. IT MAKES SENSE.

GET IT OFF YOUR CHEST

I PAIRED MY BANDEAU WITH A PINSTRIPE BLAZER TO WORK THEN SWIFTLY WHIPPED IT OFF FOR A SELFLESS SELFIE WHEN I GOT HOME FROM WALKING IN THE RAIN. THESE LADIES ARE ON THE BAND-WAGON TOO.

NAOMI CAMPBELL x ES MAGAZINE

WHEN THEY FILM YOUR SONG OF THE MOMENT IN YOUR HOMELAND UGANDA. MONTANA, YOU MADE ME PROUD.

TEAM JOSHUA

I WAS INVITED TO A 'FIGHT NIGHT' GATHERING ON SATURDAY IN A BEAUTIFUL RIVERSIDE APARTMENT IN DOCKLANDS. WITH SHISHA, DISARONNO AND A ROOM FULL OF ANTICIPATION, THE SCENE WAS SET FOR ANTHONY JOSHUA TO KNOCK OUT WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO.

PLAY IT BY EAR

HAPPY EASTER TO ALL MY RAMPANT READERS.

KHLOÉ KARDASHIAN x ES MAGAZINE

"I NEVER CONSIDERED MYSELF FAT, BUT WHEN I USED TO SHOP WITH MY SISTERS I WAS ALWAYS REALLY SHAMED AND SHUNNED BY SALES ASSISTANTS. I WAS ALWAYS SO EMBARRASSED. CELEBRITY STYLISTS WOULD REFUSE TO WORK WITH ME, THEY SAID THEY DIDN’T DRESS PEOPLE MY SIZE. IT’S SHOCKING, BUT ONCE I LOST WEIGHT, THE SAME PEOPLE WOULD REACH OUT AND BE LIKE, WE WOULD LOVE TO STYLE YOU. I WAS LIKE, SCREW YOU."

COP OF THE WEEK

I'VE MISSED OUT ON PAST RELEASES BUT THIS TIME I MADE DAMN WELL SURE THAT THE AIR MAX 97 SILVER BULLET WOULD FALL RIGHT INTO MY LAP. S/O TO MY PLUG WHO HELD ME PAIR. TEAM WORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK.

FUTURE x BILLBOARD

"IF I’M THE BIGGEST ARTIST IN THE WORLD, COOL, BUT I WANT TO JUST BE ME, I WANT MY MONEY TO BE DIFFERENT. I’M NOT TRYING TO HAVE RAPPER MONEY. MY GOAL IS TO BE ABLE TO GET EVERYTHING FROM THE WORLD THAT I CAN GET."

TBH

NOW YOU'RE SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE.

TRACKSUIT MAFIA

THIS COMFORT ON 100 TWO PIECE IS NO LONGER SAVED FOR SPORTING ACTIVITES. THE HUMBLE TRACKSUIT HAS BEEN GIVEN A SPRINKLE OF LUXE AND HAS BECOME A STAPLE IN EVERY WORKING WOMAN'S WARDROBE. JOG ON LADIES.

STYLE ICON

I WAS CASUALLY SCROLLING THROUGH THE RARE LONDON WEBSITE THE OTHER DAY AND NEARLY FELL OF MY CHAIR WHEN I NOTICED THEY'D USED MY INSTAGRAM SELFIE TO PROMOTE THEIR 'SILVER HIGH SHINE MIDI DRESS'. FLATTERED BUT ALSO SHOCKED THAT THEY DIDN'T HIT ME UP BEFORE SNATCHING THE SHOT. APPARENTLY I'M ALSO A STYLE ICON. I WONDER IF THEY MADE A FEW EXTRA TWENTIES OFF ME? PIMPIN' ALL OVER THE WORLD.

HALIMA ADEN

"A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE THE MISCONCEPTION THAT, AS A MUSLIM WOMAN, I AM SOMEHOW AGAINST WOMEN WEARING BIKINIS. NO, I WANT WOMEN TO FEEL COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT IN WHATEVER THEY WEAR. AS MUSLIMS WE JUST NEED MORE POSITIVE STORIES. PERIOD."

BOY MEETS WORLD

STILL REELING OFF THE DRAKE CONCERT ON SUNDAY NIGHT. IT COULD HAVE BEEN ALL THE WINE WE DRANK BUT PAPI'S SET LIST OF NUMBER ONE AFTER NUMBER ONE MADE ME DIZZY WITH DELIGHT. EVEN THOUGH I HAD A SEAT I COULDN'T SIT MY ASS IN IT. GYRATING TO THE BEAT OF HIS GIANT INFLATABLE PLANET IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STAGE, THIS BOY MET THE WORLD AND THE WORLD SAID, IT'S A PLEASURE TO MEET YOU.

THE NEW EDITION STORY

I WAS TOTALLY ENGROSSED IN THE 3 PART BET BIOPIC CHRONICLING NEW EDITION'S INSPIRATIONAL RISE TO FAME FROM YOUNG BOYS IN BOSTON WITH A BIG DREAM, TO BIG MEN IN HOLLYWOOD WITH A STAR ON THE WALK OF FAME. THERE'S ENOUGH CROONING TO TAKE YOU RIGHT THROUGH VALENTINE'S DAY AND PLENTY OF EYE CANDY FOR ALL US CANDY GIRLS.

BEYONCÉ x BELLY

"WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE OUR LOVE AND HAPPINESS. WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED TWO TIMES OVER. WE ARE INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL THAT OUR FAMILY WILL BE GROWING BY TWO, AND WE THANK YOU FOR OUR WELL WISHES."

BUSY

APOLOGIES FOR THE LACK OF CONTACT. LIFE HAPPENED AND I HAD TO MAKE THAT LEMONADE.

LOUIS VUITTON x SUPREME

"YOU CAN’T HAVE THE CONVERSATION OF NEW YORK MENSWEAR WITHOUT SUPREME RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE IT’S SUCH A MASSIVE GLOBAL PHENOMENON. WHEN I WAS AT COLLEGE I USED TO WORK UNPACKING BOXES OF SUPREME AT A COMPANY IN LONDON THAT DISTRIBUTED IT WHEN IT WAS JUST STARTING OUT, SO IT’S SOMETHING I’VE KNOWN ALL ALONG IN MY LIFE. I JUST FEEL THAT THE STRENGTH OF THEIR GRAPHIC VERSUS THE STRENGTH OF THE LOUIS VUITTON GRAPHIC AND THAT KIND OF POP ART FEELING - IT WORKS TOGETHER PERFECTLY."
