Four models strode the runway wearing brands like… Continue Reading

Join the Self-Love Movement: The Importance of Self-Love Event


  How often do you prioritise the things in your life which are important to you? The things that make you feel peace, joy, happiness, harmony and love? How often do you do things just for you?

Sexual Harassment — Are You Ready to Act?


  The meteoric rise of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements have forced open a dialogue on what constitutes appropriate sexual behavior.
