A Sustainable Fashion Diary for London Fashion Week
Huffington Post - 5 months
I am planning to look for sustainability in every corner and during each encounter I have during London Fashion Week - my green lens is officially on. I'll be looking at the fashion, the designers, the organisation of London Fashion Week as a whole, and the important topic of waste, currently a focus on this site as part of the Reclaim project. It started for me at check-in. Whilst I write this, I am based in St Martins Lane Hotel, and whilst the hotel is design-led and clearly comfortable in the modern luxury stakes, the tipping point for me choosing this as my base were the hotel's green credentials. The Morgans Hotel Group recently coined the term glamorously green with its daring and innovative approach to embracing a greener lifestyle - including recycling. From donating unused soap and toiletries to Clean The World's soap recycling program to giving mattresses to charity organizations for both local and overseas needs, I was excited to hear how the boutique hotel was working to ta ...

When White Feminists Get 'Honest,' They Also Need Empathy
Huffington Post - 5 months
Jennifer Weiner, the author of novels including Good in Bed and In Her Shoes, has seen immense success over the course of her writing career. In Her Shoes was adapted into a popular film starring Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette and Shirley MacLaine. Her books hit the best-seller lists like clockwork. She has over 100,000 Twitter followers, and she routinely pens essays about feminism in the literary world for outlets like The New York Times. One might be forgiven for thinking that Weiner has found not just enough success for one author’s lifetime, but a pretty enviable amount. Still, there can always be more. Last week, Oprah Winfrey announced that her October Book Club selection would be a memoir about the emotional journey of a wife and mother: Glennon Doyle Melton’s Love Warrior. The book details Glennon’s struggle with alcoholism and bulimia, as well as the upheaval she fought through after discovering her husband’s infidelity.

A Practical Dreamer: Talking with Ana Lily Amirpour about 'The Bad Batch' in Venice
Huffington Post - 6 months
When the line-up for the 73rd Venice International Film Festival was announced, in late July, there was one film that immediately jumped off the page at me, and I knew coming into this edition of the oldest film festival in the world, I just had to watch it. I craved to watch it, in fact, as one craves a good meal or the perfect glass of wine. In fact, "craving to watch it" is the perfect way to describe the desire that accompanies a film like The Bad Batch, which according to producer Eddy Moretti, was initially pitched by its filmmaker as "a cannibal falls in love with his next meal." And right I was to be ravenous about watching Ana Lily Amirpour's follow up to her modern cult classic (yes, it's already a classic, in case you were wondering) A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. Watching The Bad Batch turned out to be so spectacular for me, so infinitely ahead of the majority of filmmakers' visions and critics' perception that I wouldn't be surprised if everyone else was stil ...

Freaking Out in Our 40s, by the Last Unbotoxed Woman on Earth
Huffington Post - about 1 year
I have friends in their 40s like me, then there are the younger set, and I see a difference. Let's begin with social media. "Someone mistook me for 21 today!!!" posted a 43 year old acquaintance. Braggadocio earned her 140 likes in under 120 minutes. Comments from others followed about being mistaken for much (!) younger. Facebook feeds our narcissistic desires and I personally "like" that. It works to my benefit, especially since I have an otherwise overlooked summer birthday. My friends in their 30s post about John Hamm, Netflix or naptime between baby feedings. Those who post about work - Well, I probably don't pay attention - but they rarely have happy endings. Anyway, the response to the 43 year old swiftly becomes a manic flurry of "me too"s, with nary a 30 or 20something chiming in. I am candid with myself and I know we are all going through some sort of "life crisis." With options in the modern world like lunchtime surgical nips, fillers and great makeup (contouring!), as ...

17 Reasons to Stop Following Fashion Trends
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Any fashion conscious person knows that apparel speak louder than attitude But not all of us are fashionistas Some of us just like to wear whatever the we want Should we feel bad about that? Just because the rest of the world is practically slaving over fashion trends? No. I know we've all had those moments when we just get so sick of wearing only what is deemed fashionable by the fashion gods (whoever they are). And that's okay. After all, the trend itself was started by people just like us, right? (Well, maybe not like us exactly. But they have blood flowing through their veins and they breath air.) And if that's not a good enough reason to stop following trends and wear what you deem fit, here are a few more reasons: 1. Trends Don't Last You know that awkward moment when you buy an outfit that is, in your opinion, very sexy, but then you wear it out and everyone is looking at you with that your-clothes-are-so-last-season look (you know that look), and ...

That 'Jumanji' Remake Now Has A Director
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Sony is plowing ahead with that "Jumanji" remake no one asked for, naming Jake Kasdan as director, Deadline reports.  The man who executive-produced "Sex Tape," the 2014 comedy starring Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a 21st-century couple struggling with cloud computing, will be in charge of reimagining the 1995 Robin-Williams-led classic. His other credits include "New Girl," "Bad Teacher," "Freaks and Geeks" and "The Grinder."  Kasdan will either give us a refreshingly updated take on the story about a magical game board with more challenges than any of its players bargained for -- or leave an ugly scar on our childhood memories. The stakes are that high. News that "Jumanji" would be given, for better or for worse, the reboot treatment first broke in 2012. Sony has since announced a Christmas 2016 release date.

Dear Leo, I'm Inviting You to Take Me to the Oscars

Hey Leo! I can call you Leo, right? First of all, I feel like I need to apologize. After watching The Revenant, I realized the purpose for the man bun all those months. The disheveled, scruffy, Jack Nicholson look had me a little worried. I should have known it was for a movie role. I'm sorry I lost faith in you, briefly, but I now feel like I understand your supermodel obsession a little more. I'm glad we've gotten passed that. The real reason for this letter isn't actually to convince you to take me as your date to the Oscars. Well, ok it is, but let's be honest, we all know you're planning to take Irmelin, or Mom as you call her. Don't get me wrong, she totally deserves to sit next to you, I mean, she did birth you.

Harrison Ford Is The Highest-Grossing Actor In U.S. Box Office History
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Looks like Han Solo can finally pay off his debts. Harrison Ford, who gained worldwide fame as the roguish smuggler in the "Star Wars" series, has officially grossed more at the U.S. box office than any other actor in history. He's earned a whopping $4.71 billion, according to Box Office Mojo. The insane numbers raked in by J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" probably have something to do with Ford taking the top spot -- although we can't overlook his many other successful films and franchises, like "Indiana Jones" and "Air Force One."  Ford nabs the top box-office spot from his fellow "Star Wars" actor Samuel L. Jackson, who appeared in all three of the prequel films released between 1999 and 2005, and who has also appeared in seven films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. Jackson's number sits only slightly lower than Ford's at $4.63 billion. Tom Hanks comes in at number three with $4.33 billion, while the voice of God Morgan Freeman ($4.32 billion) and ...

Bella Thorne Defends Her Heritage: 'You Don't Have To Have Brown Hair To Be Latin'

She might be a redhead, but that doesn't mean Bella Thorne isn't Latina and proud.  "You don't have to have brown hair to be Latin," she told HuffPost Live on Tuesday. "It's just a fact." Plenty of Latinas have lighter hair, the "Alvin and the Chipmunks" actress affirmed, citing Cameron Diaz as an example.  And while the naturally-blonde Thorne is bothered that people are constantly questioning her heritage, she has no problem setting them straight.  "People ask me all the time 'How did you have a Quinceañera if you're not Latin?'" she recounted. "It's a little annoying that people don't realize I'm Latin, but it's okay because I'm like right up there to tell them that I am." Watch more from Bella Thorne's HuffPost Live conversation here.

    In February 2015, Diaz spoke of the effect of practicing Transcendental Meditation, saying, "To have that tool now and to be able to go inside to the deepest part of myself and to access that and to recharge my battery internally, within myself, I feel so badass.
    More Details Hide Details I really do. I think it's so awesome. I feel so empowered that I actually possess that." As of 2010, Diaz lives in Los Angeles, California.
    Diaz has had long-term relationships with video producer Carlos de la Torre, actor Matt Dillon, actor/singer Jared Leto, singer/actor Justin Timberlake, and New York Yankees baseball star Alex Rodriguez.

    More Details Hide Details The marriage came as a reversal for Diaz, who had previously referred to the custom as a "dying institution" that doesn't "suit our world any longer". Diaz received substantial defamation damages from suing American Media Incorporated, after the National Enquirer posted an article and pictures with the headline “Cameron Caught Cheating” on their website in May 2005. The photos claimed to show Diaz cheating on her boyfriend of the time, Justin Timberlake, with the married MTV producer of her show Trippin', Shane Nickerson. After Diaz complained, the article and pictures were removed from the web and the hard copy did not contain any of the content. The magazine apologized to Diaz, Timberlake, Nickerson and his wife for the distress caused and said the story was untrue and the picture showed no more than a goodbye hug between friends.
