I love digital media just as much as any millennial. But I am very excited to see Hannah Magazine come to life! The digital publication has reached their Kickstarter campaign goal and the publication will be in print. Hannah Magazine focuses on the fashion/beauty/lifestyle narrative of women of color.  And it’s important to have a publication that speaks to black women when so many fashion mags don’t. 

If their print edition is anything like the website…baby we are in for a treat! I couldn’t find out an exact date for the inaugural print edition but keep your eyes peeled and your ears open. But to wet your appetite check out hannahmag.com! You can see the work thus far and stay up to date on the publication date.

Congratulations to the Hannah Magazine team.

Xoxo,

Jared.

The Birth of Hannah

I am too excited for the new James Bond film. Spectre hits theatres on November 6, 2015 here in the states but I have a confession. Yes, I am a fan of Daniel Craig’s work but I am dying to see Moneypenny aka Naomie Harris. Naomie has such style on screen and off screen. In fact, she is my favorite Bond Girl. So in honor of great style and the new film, here are my favorite fashion moments from Naomie Harris.

Harris consistently knocks it out of the park and you definitely need to add her to your style icon list.

Sorry Bond, It’s All About Moneypenny!

For the second month in a row a black woman has covered Vogue magazine. And Lupita Nyong’o is killing it. The Oscar winner is decked in head to toe couture for her spread and the photographs were shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The photographers and actress previously worked together on Lupita’s Lancome campaign. 

Is anyone else in love with these shots? I think they are pure works of arts. See the spread below.

Speechless!

It warms my heart to see actress and business-woman Jessica Alba on the cover of Allure. The dynamic beauty is the magazine’s September issue cover star and she looks radiant. Alba isn’t seen on many magazine covers these days because she is too busy running a billion dollar business but she took time out to give us “fresh face” beauty and to remind readers she is still making moves. Many starlets have a way of losing that x-factor when they step back from the spotlight but Alba is a true beauty. Yes, she has an upcoming movie. Yes, she has a new beauty and skincare line for her company (The Honest Company). But can we just appreciate how this lovely mother and wife is radiating from the inside out.

Allure made a great choice and I look forward to seeing more of Ms. Alba in the coming months.

Xoxo,

Guess Who’s Back?!

Summer is coming to and end and Fall will be here very soon. When one season ends, another begins. And it’s the perfect time to shake things up and gather strength from the things that inspire us.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with old black and white photos and here are a few that I keep coming back to. What does it mean? What is my inner self trying to say? I don’t know. But I do know that harvest season is almost here and it’s time to take stock and get inspired.
