Gym Etiquette

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.

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.
