Fifty Shades of Grey not about fun sex games - It's abuse

 

 

Whoever hasn't read the book or saw the movie, I will briefly note that the plot tells the story of literature student Anastasia Steele (played by Dakota Johnson), who falls into the net of Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), a tormented billionaire whose relations with women are of the sadomasochistic variety. Anastasia, known as Ana, is hesitant to give in to Christian’s sexual conditions – which even include signing a contract stating what she will consent to do. But Christian is so incredibly charming, and the lifestyle he offers so lavish, and Ana – who is still a virgin – may be attracted in some way to the sexual adventures he presents. So she agrees, perhaps also with the thought that she may also be able to free him from the perversions that shape his sexual and emotional world.

 

 Although many fans of Fifty Shades of Grey would beg to differ, a study released today says that the main characters, Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, are not just in a relationship involving bondage, dominance, and sadomasochism (BDSM), their connection could also be characterized as intimate partner violence (IPV).

Millions of women around the planet believe Christian Grey is a heartthrob, but researchers from Ohio State University, Columbus, aimed to prove he is guilty of behaviors consistent with classic emotional, physical, and sexual abusers: intimidation, threats, isolation, stalking, and humiliation, as well as forced sex acts, contact against another person’s will, and sexual intimidation and pressure.

 

Can a Man Like Christian Grey Really Change?

In the end, Anastasia liberates him from this and brings him to true love. She is the hero."

Although the relationship begins with him affirming, “I do not do the girlfriend thing” and insisting he is a dominant looking for a submissive, many readers believe Christian Grey changes his tune by books two and three. Anastasia says she wants “more” and desires “hearts and flowers” and he says he will “try” to deliver — and many readers think he does change to become more communicative, compromising, and caring of her needs.

But the OSU researchers seem to think that millions of women have sipped of the Fifty Shades of Grey Kool-Aid. They should never trust a guy like Mr. Grey.

“Even if Christian did ‘try to change’ to ‘give her more,’ his actions are consistently abusive — including stalking Anastasia, intimidating her, isolating her from friends and family, and humiliating her,” said Bonomi. “And I raise the question—Did Christian try to change? Or did he manipulate Anastasia into thinking he was trying to change, as abusers in the 'real world' do

 

We cannot continue to mistake infatuation for romance, or obsession for love.

Hip Hop Artist J. Cole plan to help support single moms

 

 

 

 

At the end of 2014, J.Cole dropped his most prolific album to date — 2014 Forest Hill Drive. Titled after his childhood home in North Carolina.  Speaking with the Combat Jack show for a lengthy breakdown of his new music, childhood, and rise to success, Cole explained his experience moving from military housing to a trailer park to the single family home that graces his latest album cover. Explaining his excitement as a kid to move into the now-iconic address, Cole said he wants to give other kids that same opportunity.

 

“My parents separated before I was even conscious. After we moved back they were separated. When they got divorced we had to move out of the military quarters ’cause you can only live there if you’re married. That’s like real nice housing, it ain’t no mansion but it’s safe. Everybody got jobs, everybody got benefits ’cause they’re all in the Army. When I’m four years old we have to move; it’s me, my brother, and my mother and we moved to Spring Lake, a little outskirt area of Fayetteville. We moved to the trailer park in Spring Lake. It was my first taste of like, ‘Oh, shit. This is nothing like where we came from.’ I knew the energy was not right. I knew my mother was the only white lady in the neighborhood and there was no man in the house.”

 

My goal is to have that be a haven for families. So every two years a new family will come in, they live rent-free. The idea is that it’s a single mother with multiple kids and she’s coming from a place where all her kids is sharing a room. She might have two, three kids, they’re sharing a room. She gets to come here rent free. I want her kids to feel how I felt when we got to the house.”

 


“Appreciation is everything,” he also said. “Life could be both beautiful or ugly depending on how you look at it. It could be both hard and blessed. Heaven or hell. It’s all within us. The devil is in us. God is in us. All of these things are within us. It’s just how we choose to view it, it’s the decisions we make, how we decided to view it.”  It is all Beauty Within.

Beauty trends at the Golden Globes

 

 

Red carpets can be a little...predictable, right? From — shimmery gown, Old Hollywood waves, cat-eyes. Sure, there were a few very classically pretty moments at the Golden Globes, courtesy of the usual suspects — Amy Adams, Jessica Chastain — and even a newcomer or two, like the lovely Gina Rodriguez. But, there were (surprisingly) quite a few standouts, too: a violet smoky eye (Lupita!), cat-eyse (Jlo), and quite a few gorgeous lips throughout the evening

 

Jessica Chastain

Chastain looked amazingly sexy with a plunging neckline, beautiful waves and smoky gray eyeshadow winged out past her eyebrow.

 

Emma Stone

The actress looked youthful wearing a jumpsuit, a silvery shimmer on the lower inner eye, and then used a black, shimmery, waterproof Chanel pencil and made a cat-eye.. Her hair deep red hair color( easy waves), which were clasped together in the back with a barette.  

 

 

Lupita Nyong'o

Ms. Nyong’o wore hair natural and looked beautiful — Great choice of choosing bright color eyeshadow courtesy of makeup artist Nick Barose

 

 

Rosamund Pike
“Architecture in hair is on the way back — it looks amazing with the fashion that’s trending right now,” says Tina Andersen, Pike’s hairstylist. “I just gave Rosamund an asymmetrical, razor-sharp bob with a secret undercut in the back and paired with smoky, sultry navy eye makeup.

 

 

Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston is wearing an updo. Her Bronze, glowing skin-the result of combining three diferent foundations (one dark, one true to tone, one ultra light) was the hallmark of the star's red carpet look.

 


Tina Fey
The night’s cohost absolutely killed it by keeping her beauty look refreshingly simple, with lined eyes and a ponytail with major volume.

 


Sienna Miller

Miller looked the part of a California beach girl in the winter, beachy waves, bronze skin and pale pink lipstick.

 

Kerry wore black line  all around the eye, and then layered it with a shimmery, dark-gray shadow for the appearance of a shimmering liner.”

 

Jennifer Lopez

We love JLo over being over the top, barbie styled hair, dark eye liner makeup.

Scene Stealer: Tips from a fashionista

 Fashion Files  featuring DT by Abesi Manyando

 

She's a fashionista, socialite and most importantly a beauty with brains and purpose. DT “Scar” Ladon is the woman that your man crush Mondays crush over.  Her beauty is effortless and she is a self-described "tom girl." She rocks a signature Marilyn Monroe-blond pixie cut  (at times) red. DT fearlessly mixes bold colors in her every-day wear. Her statement accessories are a collection of art. Whether she's sporting over-sized designer shades, one of a kind-jewelry, gold-encrusted masks or  Parisian scarves, this trendy jet-setter always leaves a memorable impression. DT's  impeccable original style is often duplicated but she says she doesn’t mind because its all a part of being the fashion trend-setter that she is. Beyond fashion and beauty, she is a confident business minded-woman  and humanist who is always quick to help other women achieve their dreams through her immense network and must-have rolodex.  As St. Louis County (ferguson) became a firestorm of racial inequality, DT put aside her style focus and made it her mission to stand up against injustice through the Mike Brown challenge, asking everyone to raise awareness against violence.  Because she is a kaliedoscope of all things beautiful  it wasn’t hard for us to choose her as one of  Beauty Within's end of the year "scene stealers." Check out her sit-down with us after this year's New York Fashion Week .

 

BW: Describe your style?

Get Rihanna look - metallic lipstick

Rihanna is known for her bold make-up as well as her music , and now her beauty look can be copied thanks to a make-up artist's new video.

Cosmetics expert Michelle Phan, who has a wildly popular YouTube channel, has made a step-by-step guide on Vogue.com using dark lipstick, liquid eyeliner and plenty of contouring to recreate Rihanna's signature look.

And she tops it off with a backwards cap and metallic accessories, proving that anyone can transform into a celebrity sexy "Bad Girl".

 

 


 

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna 2 Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “warm mauve with silver frost.” It’s a muted, dark brown with copper, mauve, and silver flecks of shimmer in it. The finish is more frosted, lightly metallic. MAC Icon (DC, $16.00) is several shades lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It had mostly opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy consistency, but it didn’t apply as evenly as I’d like. It doesn’t feel gritty in the tube, despite the high shimmer content, initially or as it wears away. On me, the color lasted four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating over time. It is a Viva Glam, limited life, shade, and it is packaged in a metallic red, rubberized tube. Viva Glam is one of the best charitable causes in beauty, as every cent of the selling price goes to the MAC AIDS Fund.

7 Steps For Layering Your Outfits

Friday
Nov212014

Bundle up with style (winter coats)

As the weather begins to get colder, it's important to start thinking about shopping for the perfect women's coat to bundle up in. A winter coat is essential if you live in a cold climate. Your winter coat is going to be one of your bigger clothing purchases and one of most used items in your closet during the winter, so you should enjoy wearing it. Find the right outerwear  for your shape, you will look your best..

Which coat is right for your life and your style?

  1. Consider where you want to wear your winter coat most often. You may want something that is going to fit your daily activities. If every day of your week includes dressing up and going into an office, you would be better off with a classic tailored wool coat.

  2. Take a look at the latest Gareth Pugh coat ($2,427) from their Fall 2013 collection. This is a black woolen coat with leather sleeves, a high collar and a front zip closure. Gareth Pugh has received global recognition for redefining modern luxury and this radical coat will certainly set you apart from the rest this winter.

  3. We investigated what makes a warm coat warm -- tight stitching and water resistance are two key factors -- so that you could stay cozy when the temperatures plunge. Our search for the warmest winter coat are down-filled jackets.

Which coat will be most flattering on your body type?

Finding the right size is important, and most coats can be tailored a bit. You can usually have the hem shortened, the sleeves shortened or let down a bit and possibly even have darts added. But finding outerwear that is flattering is about more than just size; you will want to start with a shape that works for your figure.

  1. If you would like your coat to help you feel taller, try a women's coat that hits no lower than an inch above your knee to elongate your leg line.

  2. If you need a little help creating curves, try a belted coat. Belts will cinch in the waist, creating a feminine hourglass shape.

  3. If you're worried about looking top-heavy, consider a single-breasted coat.

  4. If you're worried about looking bottom-heavy, try an A-line coat.

  5. If you have broad shoulders or a large bust, look for a coat with a V-neck.

When you want to find the perfect women's winter coat at a discount price, look no further than Overstock.com, where you can find the right coat for your life and your style without spending a lot of money.

Bino & Fino: The Cartoon every parent needs to know about!

Bino and Fino is the groundbreaking cartoon that everyone is buzzing about.  As parents we all know that there is a definite void in diversity as it pertains to children's programming.  Adamu and Ibrahim Waziri, the creators of this popular educational cartoon are changing this.  Finally, parents have a cartoon that their children can identify with. Bino and Fino are widely popular amongst children from many different backgrounds and cultures.  Hopefully with their growing popularity, children of color everywhere will no longer fill as invisible when they watch their favorite cartoons and other children will get to learn about true African culture.  Beauty Within TV  had a chance  to talk to  Adamu and Ibrahim Waziri. See what the inspiring creators had to say about our new favorite animation!

Why is Bino and Fino important for parents and children? 

 

Bino and Fino is important for children and parents because it is an educational and fun show. The show is also important because it portrays a type of African family that is rarely showed in popular children’s media. 

  

What can children learn about Bino and Fino?

 

Bino and Fino are brother and sister who love to learn. They go on adventures with Zeena the magic butterfly who

 helps them learn and discover things about the world. 

 

 

 What inspired you to create Bino and Fino?

 

 

There was a lack of of a type of children's show for children in Nigeria.  Where I'm from.  All of the children's cartoons on  our television screens are imported. Plus none of them showed any characters that looked like us. The older I became I noticed it more African countries. This is a crazy situation that’s going under the radar as far as I’m concerned. I have to mention that I have nothing against foreign children’s shows. What I have a problem with is the balance.

 

We need to step up our game in sub Saharan Africa to make sure our children have a good choice of quality locally produced children’s media that is safe and educational. The educational element is the most important part that inspired me to be honest. Nelson Mandela said that education is the most powerful weapon with which to change the world. I totally believe that.

 

The medium of cartoon shows is a powerful influencer of young minds so why not use it to an advantage? Since I had a small animation company in Abuja, Nigeria, I decided we could have some sort of impact and address the imbalance in a little way.

 

How do you think Bino and Fino can change the stereotypes of the western perception of Africa?

 

Though that’s not the main reason for doing Bino and Fino, a wonderful side effect of the show has the reaction to the show from parents who live in different parts of the world. The show has fans in the U.S. Japan, S. Korea, Brazil, Germany, Sweden , the U.K., France, Jamaica, St. Lucia and many more countries. The interesting is that the fans are not only from the Diaspora which is great and we hope this will increase with the new episodes. That is the way it should be. The cultural exchange should not be one way only but be equal ideally.

 

 What are some children's responses to Bino and Fino?

 

The great thing is that the educational component of the show is coming through. Many parents comment on what they and their children have learnt from the show. On a basic level, many children have commented in various ways about seeing characters like them on screen. They say things like “Bino looks like my brother” or “Fino is Brown like me”. Those are very powerful statements.

 

 What can audiences expect in the next DVD?

We’re going to mix it up more in the new episodes. There will be quite a few episodes about culture, geography and history from different African countries. Beyond that we’re going to cover general educational topics like maths, science and life lessons.
