Just in time to wrap up the month and get a head-start on the holiday season, Beyoncé just dropped an unboxing video of her brand new perfume for women, Cé Noir. It literally translates to “black”.

Emma Dabiri New Book shakes the table on today’s idea of beauty 📚🤲🏾
Today with so much of history, politics and social influences, the human body has shaped the standardised version of beauty. Irish-Nigerian academic activist and broadcaster, Emma Dabiri explores the pressures of beauty standards on today’s body in her new book, Disobedient Bodies: Reclaim your Unruly Beauty. In association with the Wellcome Collection, Emma deconstructs why so many women hate or feel uncomfortable in their bodies as she zooms in on her why - “I write for the world as it is now”. Emma encourages us to rebel against current beauty standards and to find joy in the beauty that we live and feel through now, appreciating our body as it is. The compilation of this cohesive essay is said to be ground-breaking, intellectual, insightful, readable and necessary. She inspires an alternative to beauty, and forming a healthier relationship between the two and we love that at FROW! What is attraction, can we be free from this feeling in our body that we are scrutinised, has childhood shaped us due to capitalism or something else? Her books delved deeply into it and questions beauty as something we are or something we do. Pick it up for this winter’s read, the paperback original is £7.99 at all major book stores.
