Ariana Grande On Cosmopolitan UK May 2017 Issue

The cute Ariana Grande covers the May issue of Cosmopolitan UK and she looks lovely as always. I love her signature ponytail hairdo, and her makeup is always on point. This is a fab cover!

I can clearly see myself reading this issue. From the topics on the cover, it looks like it would be a great read. I would love to read the “Dress like a Boss” article, “How to join the 150k Job Club”, and “Beauty Bloggers: Can we trust anything they say” articles. They sound interesting.

I do find it funny that magazines editors are mostly threatened by bloggers in general, I find it extremely flattering. I am not sure if this Beauty Bloggers article is a positive or negative article, but it is funny that many of these magazine bosses are having sleepless nights over bloggers.

I think there is more than enough room for magazines and bloggers, there should be no competition or bad blood at all. I celebrate the magazines I read, and I truly enjoy writing about them. I have been reading magazines long before I started reading blogs or writing on Fashion and Style Police, and I have a separate place in my heart for magazines and blogs. They feed a different part of me in different ways.

I like blogs because I can relate more to them, and I like magazines because I can’t relate with them, if that makes any sense. I do prefer reading blogs to magazines and that could be because I am a blogger and blogs are free!

 

 

Anyways, back to Ariana Grande. She looks gorgeous on the cover and I want to read this issue now.

What do you think? Have you read this issue? Please sound off in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the week!

Jourdan Dunn Covers Glamour Magazine UK April 2017

The beautiful Jourdan Dunn is the cover girl for Glamour Magazine UK April 2017, and I am loving the cover!

Jourdan Dunn looks great on this month’s Glamour Magazine cover. I love her short hair and simple makeup. Her outfit is edgy and so her, and that smile is so beautiful. This is one issue I will definitely be reading this month.

In this issue, Dunn chats with Glamour about her career, new collection with Missguided, and everything else in between.

 

On her new collection – LouDunn + Missguided

“I want to have the final say, because it’s my name and it’s a representation of me. I don’t want to have my name on it if other people have done all the work.”

I like the sound of this collection already, and can’t wait to see it in flesh!

 

On designing a collection for “real women” vs models

“I don’t really like the term ‘real women’. When you compare ‘real women’ to models, it’s like they are not real, and it’s like, what do you mean? I live on earth. I have breasts, I have a vagina, I am very much real.”

I get what Jourdan means, she is a real woman of course, but many of these collections are not designed with a ‘real woman’ in mind.  But I guess since this collection is a representation of her, it is going to fit a certain body type more than others, and there is nothing wrong with that.

On her attitude to life

“I have down moments, but I just let them be moments and not drag on. I’m like ‘Be a big girl, get on with it, you’ve got shit to do’.”

That is exactly how I see life too.

 

I love the sound of this issue, it ticks all the right boxes for me. I am looking forward to reading Jourdan Dunn’s interview in full, and the other features as well.

Will you be reading? What are your thoughts on this issue?

 

 

 

 

 

Claire Danes Covers Harper’s Bazaar February 2017

The lovely Homeland star – Claire Danes, is the cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar February 2017, and she looks stunning on both covers.

I am a huge Homeland fan. It is an adrenalin pumping series, and it keeps me at the edge of my seat all through, almost like 24. It is currently one of my favourite series. I have binged watched all the seasons on Netflix as soon as I discovered it. So I am happy to see season 6 is out. I can’t wait to watch that.

This Harper’s Bazaar cover is beautiful as usual. Claire Danes looks amazing on it. I love her hair and makeup (the red lippie always wins), and the outfit looks good too. I would love to read this issue. The interview sounds like a fab read.

Here are some excerpts from Danes’ interview with Harper’s Bazaar:

 

On Donald Trump and BREXIT

“I do think that England and America are so closely affiliated that it’s not terribly surprising there’s this parallel phenomenon occurring between our two countries,” Danes says. “The Brexit and Trump phenomena are informed by similar forces and social and economic movements. I think it’s been really stressful; it’s been really scary. I think we’re in a fever state and we’re all really anxious about how we’ve gotten here and why we’ve gotten here.”

Yes it is a very stressful time for many.

On her Carrie Mathison Character

“You know, I don’t think of her as female,” says Danes. “I’m playing a person. I’m playing a person. She’s just not defined at all by her sex. She is defined by her ideals, by her patriotism, by her commitment to righting wrongs, by her relationship to her mental condition [but] it’s just really beyond the more conventional stereotypes about what it is to be a woman in this world.”

I love Carrie Mathison! She is not a typical heroine, and that is what I love most about her.

What do you think of these covers? Are you a fan of Homeland?
