A Rundown on the Emmys

The American award ceremony that recognises excellence in the television may have delivered its awards already. But I would simply like to reflect on the celebration of beautiful fashion and milestones that took place.

Let’s begin with Donald Glover, he was nominated in four categories, and one of the awards he won on the night was the Best-Directing Comedy Award. Donald happened to be the first ever black person to win this award- go him! He also managed to take home the Best Actor in a Comedy Prize, with his show Atlanta, which just so happened to be a crowd favourite at the Emmys this year, nominated for six awards overall.

Zarina’s Runway Debut

The waft of arabica roasted beans filters through the studio, attempting to escape the four stark white walls. The wood flooring strives to hide the severity of the artificial lights, while the mirrors taunt the surface imperfections of each individual standing within the room. “I’d love to see more diversity,” Zarina pipes up, distracting us all from our insecurities.

Amongst it all. (more…)

Since starting her Youtube channel, Nyma has tested out and reviewed the darkest shades of makeup that a brand or line carries. To show the beauty industry areas, they need to improve on as well as express the lack of variety in both what shades are created, and what stores keep the darker shades in stock. (more…)
