Yellow Bone Craze- 50 Shades Lighter


By Farirai Macheka We have all heard about the miraculous powers of ultra-expensive or cheap potions and lotions that transform one into a 'Yellow Bone’. Growing up Zimbabwean meant bathing routines consisted of rigorous scrubbing with a stone to scrub off the 'dirt' and an adult relative encouraging you to scrub more (Mugotsvuka/Libebabomvu) or to achieve that light skin tone. Bless our souls. Fast forward to the millennials, light skin is trending and there is a quick fix to getting a lighter skin tone, but at what cost? Products used To the bleaching ...

Sometimes a look just isn’t complete without a fully grown beard. ‘Movember’ is the only month that you are bonafide to let ...

Fengshui Guidelines on Handbag Buying!


By Jane Gavera From totes to clutches, I have a hard time choosing - all I know is that I got to have them all. We all have a weakness or two and mine happens to be a serious sweet tooth (and it won’t come loose) a glass (or two) of red wine, and fabulous designer handbags. Talk about confessions-of- a-chic-hobo. Rather it’s a fetishistic love of high end handbags that would probably require decades of counselling /Psycho analysis to detox of them. It’s hard not to crave a new handbag ...

Suit Size Matters


It doesn’t matter if your suit costs $500 or $5,000; if the SUIT fits like a garbage bag (or it’s so tight that your co-workers can count your leg hairs), it won’t look good. Suit jackets are shorter than they were a decade ago, but you don’t want your entire bum showing, either. If you hang your arms loose at your sides, your fingers should be able to easily cup the bottom hem of your suit jacket. Avoid longer and or else you’ll look like an undertaker.      Your Shoulders: A tailor ...
