You Should Never Wear Thumb Rings. It's A Juju Thing.
Huffington Post - 2 months
Embed from Getty Images In his book "Mystic's Musings", Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev has warned women to never wear any metal rings on their thumbs as it "will lead to attracting occult forms". Sadhguru, a name which means uneducated guru, is an Enlightened Yogi, Mystic, Humanitarian, New York Times Bestselling Author, and more than likely a genius. So as much as I am a long term fan of fashion guru and thumb ring advocate, Rachel Zoe, (I love receiving her quarterly Box of Style and fashion advice via The Zoe Report) I am going to have to draw the line here. Rachel is even quoted as saying "why are you asking me if I've read a book". I've read the book, Rachel, it's now up to you to stop just accessorising with gay abandon and enlighten your fashion followers! Sadhguru and Rachel Zoe both share an affinity for snake jewelry. Spiritual seekers and Isha meditators can buy copper snake rings from Isha Shoppe USA to be worn only on the r ...

The day we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived: The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs tonight. Based on photos that have emerged in the days since this year’s show filmed, it’s evident that the flashy production, which has only gotten more elaborate over the years, maintains its reputation in 2016.  But if there’s one thing that has gone unchanged since the show’s humble beginnings, it’s the models’ excitement about walking that coveted runway. Kendall Jenner has been quoted repeatedly calling the show her ultimate dream, and the same goes for best friend and fellow supermodel Gigi Hadid.

Heidi Klum’s Extraordinary Halloween Costumes
Huffington Post - 4 months
By Erika Harwood Heidi Klum has spent over 15 years mastering the art of Halloween costumes. Her famous annual party has forced her to step up her game every year, and she’s not afraid to spend hours applying prosthetics or wearing something that will render her immobile (or unrecognizable) at her celebrity-adorned bash. Take a look back at all of Klum’s innovative and increasingly over-the-top costumes through the years. At her Halloween party in 2000, Klum dressed in head-to-toe black. Perhaps as a goth Pippi Longstocking? Who’s to say! In 2001, Klum arrived on horseback as her own version of Lady Godiva, complete with a bedazzled white bodysuit, blonde wig, and fake blood dripping from her mouth. Klum did her best Betty Boop in a short red dress, satin gloves, and cartoonish eye makeup in 2002. Klum was all about gold in 2003. Her costume included gold teeth, gold body glitter, and gold hair ribbons. (2003) More: The Kardashians' Obsession with Nude ...

Get Ready! Mormon LGBT Superheroes Could Soon Be A Reality
Huffington Post - 5 months
A groundbreaking new comic book that features a gay, Mormon superhero was released to great acclaim earlier this year. Stripling Warrior is a queer comic project from Brian Andersen meant, in part, to give queer people who have felt marginalized by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints a character they could connect with. Now, Andersen is launching a Kickstarter campaign to expand both the storyline and the breadth of characters in Striping Warrior to include not only gay but also lesbian, trans, bi and asexual Mormon heroes. “As a gay Mormon myself who’s felt the sting of my Mormon faith’s anti-LGBT policies, it’s super important to have representation,”Andersen told The Huffington Post. “The Mormon culture is pretty much all or nothing ― either you fall in line and follow the leaders (who are called Prophets, Seers and Revelators) or, as Heidi Klum sternly and dismissively declares, you’re out!
