I love these polishes.

Little White Lies: Frozen Planet Fakery and the Fall of the BBC

By: Alice Bonasio

It is always sad when your heroes let you down, and this week one the people I most admire did just that: Sir David Attenborough.

When it emerged earlier in the week that certain scenes in the BBC’s latest wildlife documentary series Frozen Planet had been filmed in a zoo, I was truly shocked.

Not because they had used the footage of newly born Polar Bear cubs – which by any standards was amazing – but because they intercut it with scenes showing wild polar bears, with a narration that deliberately misled the viewer. [Read more…]

On Beauty and the Perfect Pose: My INTERVIEW with Nigel Barker

“Learning how to use a camera is one thing but knowing when to take the picture, coaxing your subject to deliver a specific performance, understanding the nuances of light and manipulating it deliberately, setting out to accomplish and knowing when you’ve got it – even when others hate it…

#MusicMonday – Interview with Bad Rabbits

with Dua Boakye from Bad Rabbits

Considered part of a new wave of indie-soul artists, Bad Rabbits is a breath of fresh air.

While they ask their audience to dance the electric slide and cover hits from Michael Jackson in their set list, these guys from Boston are a unique addition to the current music scene.

As American as their diverse heritages, they use their personal histories and inspirations to create the music they make.

As a part of the RLife LIVE Music Series put on by the Renaissance Hotels, I had the pleasure of attending their Times Square concert and sitting down with the band afterward for a chat. [Read more…]
