It is an Ashley Graham season as she features on yet another magazine cover. This time, she covers the latest issue of Cosmopolitan UK, and she killed it!

I previously featured the stunning Ashley Graham British Vogue cover some days ago. So it was a pleasant surprise to see her on the Cosmopolitan January issue as well. I think I can see more of her body on this cover but I think the Vogue cover is more tasty.

Here is the Vogue cover for January for those who have no clue what I am on about –

I do like both magazine covers. I just think the Vogue is a prettier and more classy shot. Do you agree?

Anyways back to the Cosmopolitan January issue, I have seen it around in the shops and I am hoping to grab a copy (as it is just Β£1) this week while on holiday. I would love to read more about Ashley Graham. I have gone from not knowing who she is, to seeing her on the cover of 2 major magazines in the UK, in the last couple of days, so she has my full attention now.

I would love to read more about he modelling career and how she has survived the whole plus size modelling industry. I hear it has not been a smooth ride to the top. I even read about many brands allegedly refusing to send Graham clothes for her British Vogue cover, can you imagine that? I would have thought designers would jump at dressing anyone for a British Vogue cover. I guess sizeism is alive and very common in the fashion industry.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you aware of sizeism in the fashion industry? What do you think of this Cosmopolitam cover?

Sound off in the comments section below please.

Random Things That Have Happened Lately

Craig David Tweeted Me!

So the coolest thing happened to me the other day. I was reading the latest issue of Cosmopolitan – the one I told you all about the other day, and then I got to the Craig David mini interview, and I read the bit where he claimed he always responds to tweets. I was like, ‘I bet that is just him talking’, celebrities are too busy to respond to mere mortals like us right? So I decided to tweet him to see if he responds, and he did! I was well surprised and impressed to see he is a man of his word, and he is still keeping it real. I am glad to see he is not carried away with the fame and fortune in the celebrity world. Many of us are yet to be ‘somebody’, but we think so highly of ourselves, and we get cocky and lose the plot, which I think is very sad.

That simple act right there made my evening and got this post written. I am a fan of Craig David, I like most of his songs, some of my favourites are 7 Days and Walking Away. I know the lyrics of many of them off the top of my head. I am looking forward to his new album – Following My Intuition, launching later this month..

A Cat Breaking Into my Shed!

Another random thing that happened some days ago, was us catching our neighbour’s cat trying to break into our shed. Well I think that is what she was trying to do. It was so weird to watch. She saw us at some point and went over the fence. I still wonder what that was about. Our neighbour has a shed so while ours would interest the cat is quite puzzling to me. Maybe the cat owners can help me out..

Wacthing KUWTK Latest Season!

Me watching the latest season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (KUWTK) is random because I stopped watching after the first few episodes. I found them so slow and boring. So for me to start watching the last few episodes in the season, some days ago is very random. Guess boredom has a major role in this random act of mine. KUWTK is one reality show I think needs to go away. I think we have all had enough now. It has been on TV for years now. I think they are running out of ideas. What more could happen? But I am loving the new E series – Rob & Chyna. Good entertainment there, lol..

Has any random thing happened to you lately? Do share..

 

 

Taylor Schilling Covers Cosmopolitan UK July 2016 Issue

Cosmo UK July 2016

The Orange is the New Black’s (OITNB) star – Taylor Schilling is on the cover of Cosmopolitan UK July 2016 issue and she is looking very good. Now this is one cover I have fallen completely in love with. I love her hair and light makeup. I love the jumper she has on, and the flirty/playful pose. Cosmo definitely got this cover right.

I adore Taylor Schilling. I think she is a great actress and I am a huge fan of OITNB. It is one of my top 10 Netflix series, and her character, Piper is my favourite inmate. So you can imagine how happy I am to know the 4th season of the hit series will be on Netflix from June 17. Happy evenings await me on the sofa!

Taylor on Cosmo July 2016 Picture

In the interview with Cosmo, Taylor Schilling talks about how fast paced and lonely her career can be –

“You feel lonely but also so deeply plugged in with your work and you forget almost. But then it gets to the weekend when I do remember and it’s like, ‘Gosh, I haven’t talked to anybody in real life for a week. I’ve only been talking to fake people, my fake friends and my fake family.’ It’s so crazy…”

She also talks about her romantic relationship with another inmate Laura Prepon (Alex) in the series, their sex scenes and her refusing to go nude –

“They’re pretty easy,” she says. “To me it’s a bit of choreography, then everyone is on their way home. It’s not comfortable, but it’s simple. For Laura and me it’s just old hat now.”

There are limits though and Taylor does have a nudity clause.

“I don’t know who wouldn’t,” she says. “But nobody is trying to sneak a nipple in there without telling you. Or an errant pubic hair!”

I admire her for sticking to her guns and I have a new level of respect for her after reading her interview. So many women and men are so quick to yank the clothes off for a few bucks. It is refreshing to see a successful actress refuse to take her clothes off.

What do you think?
