…Ms Tracee Ellis Ross. She did it!
The first black woman in 33 years, to win Best Actress in a TV series Comedy!
(And she was wearing Zuhair Murad- my favourite!)
From the days of Girlfriends, I have enjoyed watching this woman and over the last year I have also become a Black-ish fan. I have followed it through each season, episode after episode; so to find out Ross had not only been nominated but won a Golden Globe is great – and to be the first black woman in over 30 years to win such an award is phenomenal! Congratulations Tracee (Joan/Bow)!
Beautiful, full of character and forever wearing a killer grin, Ms Ross is quite literally WINNING!

When they talk about fashion and being alternative they mean the David Bowies, Lady Gagas, Susie Bubbles and Jeremy Scotts but when they talk about food and being alternative this is what they mean…
…And if they remade Breakfast at Tiffany’s I’m sure this multicoloured bagel would make its Hollywood debut!
Admittedly, these bagels looked rather odd at a first glance; (just like alternative fashion) for the obvious reasons of confusion (also like alternative fashion), but with that second (or fifth) look, it really is something spectacular! Its hard to tell what the baker (and fashion designer alike) was going for. Is it sweet or is it savoury? (is it cool and quirky?) Is it flavoured and artificial? Full of E numbers or super foods? (Statement making, attention seeking, or just out right fashionable and trendy?) And the underlining question; how? How did they do it? Just, how? Quite literally; “food for thought” -wouldn’t you say? (The same goes for fashion and how certain looks get pulled off? Especially the weird and “alternative” ones?)
But back to bagels, I still do not have an answer to that questions, however I can tell you that all the colourful swirls aside, it tasted like a regular plain bagel. No added flavours (to which I was happy about) and no confusion of taste nor an imprint of colour(s) left on my tongue. So all in all a pretty amazing bagel, considering it looked super cool! Far from your average bagel yet it tasted exactly like your average bagel-its a win, win! This is where my inner nerd meets my inner fatty- I mean foodie! And I love it! I mean how can you go wrong when food looks and tastes so good! (At a second glance, that is!) #FoodPorn
