Despite being obsessed with fashion designers at an early age, I was already in my late teens when I finally learned Carolina Herrera was Venezuelan. Growing up in Puerto Rico, I had my doubts about whether Herrera was even from Latin America. Her last name was a good indicator that she was, but it somehow didn’t convince me. I asked my mum — one of her biggest fans — but she shrugged off the question with a simple “I’m not sure.” Looking back, it’s clear to me that I wasn’t really interested in

“Race is a delusion,” my friend sighed. We had been discussing passing, the act of someone from one race being accepted or perceived as a member of another, usually a marginalised race to white. After numerous anecdotes about the ridiculous race science-y tactics — gauging the slope of a nose is a popular one — that people employed to categorise others, this was our conclusion. A week later, our Twitter timelines were scattered with comments on a tantalizing trailer for Passing, a forthcoming Ne
SPARKING JOY Marie Kondo in episode 1 of SPARKING JOY. Cr. Adam Rose/Netflix In 2019, Marie Kondo’s Netflix series Tidying Up With Marie Kondo gave a global spotlight on how to find happiness through organisation at home. It helped viewers evaluate their life and their stuff, dramatically changing many people’s outlook on what sparked them joy. Now, in 2021, the world has dramatically changed.

Here it is — the final Mercury retrograde of 2021. So far this year, we’ve made it through a mentally exhausting retrograde in Aquarius and a chaotic, gossip-loving retrograde in Gemini. But this time, we might be catching a bit of a break. From September 27 to October 18, the speedy planet will be doing its backwards dance in Libra, a sign known for being peaceful and harmonious — and relationship-oriented. Libra is ruled by Venus, the Planet of Love and Affection, and as a result our social li

If you're drawn to a more minimalist aesthetic in your interiors, that doesn't mean bare walls and empty surfaces are your only route.

From The Undoing to Normal People — screenwriters certainly stepped up to the plate when it came to adapting bestselling novels to the small screen — but what about what else is coming up in 2021 and 2022? The Conversations with Friends adaption is well on its way, with production officially in progress for the BBC series, plus Normal People’s Daisy Edgar-Jones recently confirmed that filming had officially wrapped on Where The Crawdads Sing. Elsewhere, four of our favourite bestselling books are to be adapted to the small screen: firstly Dolly's Alderton's huge hit Everything I Know About Love is being adapted by the BBC, as well as Naoise Dolan's Exciting Times (starring Bridgerton's Phoebe Dynevor as protagonist Ava).
