Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : No Turning Back relives the tumultuous beginnings of Africa''s democratization experiment in the early 1990s. The main theme of the collection is an investment in hope and in the resilience of Africans. The poems are loud and clear in their castigation of dictatorship and its miseries. They celebrate the mass resolve and thirst for democracy by Africans for whom there is ''No turning back!''''A lucid and truly memorable collection of poems. Dibussi forces us to turn back and look at the pivotal volcanic moments in Cameroon''s history between 1990- 1993... As a student activist and budding journalist during this historic period, Dibussi captures cadences of this struggle eloquently.'' Joyce Ashuntantang, Ph.D., Department of English, University of Connecticut, Greater Hartford, USA.''This collection is an important document chronicling, through verse, the events of an era in a given space with unmitigated passion.''Kangsen Wakai, poet, Houston, Texas, USA''. a subtle yet unapologetic critique of Cameroon''s chequered history of predatory governance. The poems provide succor to a people besieged first by the unrealised dreams of a political (mis)marriage and then a false promissory note on which their democratic development is written.''

Petitioning For Our Rights, Fighting For Our Nation. The History Of The Democratic Union Of Cameroonian Women, 1949-1960

Product : Petitioning For Our Rights, Fighting For Our Nation. The History Of The Democratic Union Of Cameroonian Women, 1949-1960
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Thousands of Cameroonian women played an essential role in the radically anti-colonial nationalist movement led by the Union of the Populations of Cameroon (UPC): they were the women of the Democratic Union of Cameroonian Women (UDEFEC). Drawing on women nationalists'' petitions to the United Nations, one of the largest collections of political documents written by African women during the decolonization era, as well as archival research and oral interviews, this work shows how UDEFEC transcended ethnic, class, education and social divides, and popularized nationalism in both urban and rural areas through the Trust Territories of the Cameroons under French and British administration. Foregrounding issues such as economic autonomy and biological and agricultural fertility, UDEFEC politics wove anti-imperial democracy and notions of universal human rights into locally rooted political cultures and histories. UDEFEC''s history sheds light on the essential components of women''s successful political mobilization in Africa, and contributes to the discussion of women''s involvement in nationalist movements in formerly colonized territories.

Anxious: Using The Brain To Understand And Treat Fear And Anxiety

Product : Anxious: Using The Brain To Understand And Treat Fear And Anxiety
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : “A rigorous, in-depth guide to the history, philosophy, and scientific exploration of this widespread emotional state . . . [LeDoux] offers a magisterial review of the role of mind and brain in the generation of unconscious defense responses and consciously expressed anxiety. . . . [His] charming personal asides give an impression of having a conversation with a world expert.” —Nature   A comprehensive and accessible exploration of anxiety, from a leading neuroscientist and the author of Synaptic Self Collectively, anxiety disorders are our most prevalent psychiatric problem, affecting about forty million adults in the United States. In Anxious, Joseph LeDoux, whose NYU lab has been at the forefront of research efforts to understand and treat fear and anxiety, explains the range of these disorders, their origins, and discoveries that can restore sufferers to normalcy.   LeDoux’s groundbreaking premise is that we’ve been thinking about fear and anxiety in the wrong way. These are not innate states waiting to be unleashed from the brain, but experiences that we assemble cognitively. Treatment of these problems must address both their conscious manifestations and underlying non-conscious processes. While knowledge about how the brain works will help us discover new drugs, LeDoux argues that the greatest breakthroughs may come from using brain research to help reshape psychotherapy.   A major work on one of our most pressing mental health issues, Anxious explains the science behind fear and anxiety disorders.  Praise for Anxious:“[Anxious] helps to explain and prevent the kinds of debilitating anxieties all of us face in this increasingly stressful world.” —Daniel J. Levitin, author of The Organized Mind and This Is Your Brain on Music   “A careful tour through the current neuroscience of fear and anxiety . . . [Anxious] will reward the informed reader.” —The Wall Street Journal   “An extraordinarily ambitious, provocative, challenging, and important book. Drawing on the latest research in neuroscience (including work in his own laboratory), LeDoux provides explanations of the origins, nature, and impact of fear and anxiety disorders.” —Psychology Today

A Convergence of Civilizations: The Transformation of Muslim Societies Around the World

Product : A Convergence of Civilizations: The Transformation of Muslim Societies Around the World
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : We are told that Western/Christian and Muslim/Arab civilizations are heading towards inevitable conflict. The demographics of the West remain sluggish, while the population of the Muslim world explodes, widening the cultural gap and all but guaranteeing the outbreak of war. Leaving aside the media''s sound and fury on this issue, measured analysis shows another reality taking shape: rapprochement between these two civilizations, benefiting from a universal movement with roots in the Enlightenment. The historical and geographical sweep of this book discredits the notion of a specific Islamic demography. The range of fertility among Muslim women, for example, is as varied as religious behavior among Muslims in general. Whether agnostics, fundamentalist Salafis, or al-Qaeda activists, Muslims are a diverse group that prove the variety and individuality of Islam. Youssef Courbage and Emmanuel Todd consider different degrees of literacy, patriarchy, and defensive reactions among minority Muslim populations, underscoring the spread of massive secularization throughout the Arab and Muslim world. In this regard, they argue, there is very little to distinguish the evolution of Islam from the history of Christianity, especially with Muslims now entering a global modernity. Sensitive to demographic variables and their reflection of personal and social truths, Courbage and Todd upend a dangerous meme: that we live in a fractured world close to crisis, struggling with an epidemic of closed cultures and minds made different by religion.

Description : Warsaw- and London-based filmmakers Franciszka and Stefan Themerson are often recognized internationally as pioneers of the 1930s Polish avant-garde. Yet, from the turn of the century to the end of the 1920s, Poland''s literary and art scenes were also producing a rich array of criticism and early experiments with the moving image that set the stage for later developments in the avant-garde. In this comprehensive and accessible study, Kamila Kuc draws on myriad undiscovered archival sources to tell the history of early Polish avant-garde movements-Symbolism, Expressionism, Futurism, and Constructivism-and to reveal their impact on later practices in art cinema.

Image And Word In The Theology Of John Calvin

Product : Image And Word In The Theology Of John Calvin
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description :  In his groundbreaking new study of the Swiss reformer, Randall C. Zachman reveals and analyzes John Calvin''s understanding of image and word both comprehensively and chronologically, with attention to the way that each theme develops in Calvin''s theology.For most scholars, John Calvin (1509-1564) insisted on the essential invisibility of God in order to deny that God could be represented in any kind of visible image. This claim formed one of his foundational arguments against the display of man-made images in worship. Given the transcendence of God, Calvin rejected the human attempt to create signs and symbols of GodÕs presence on earth, especially the statues, images, and paintings present in Roman Catholic churches.Zachman argues, in contrast, that although Calvin rejects the use of what he calls "dead images" in worship, he does so to focus our attention on the "living images of God" in which the invisible God becomes somewhat visible. Calvin insists that these images cannot rightly be contemplated without the Word of God to clarify their meaning; we are only led to the true knowledge of God when we hold together the living images of God that we see with the Word of God that we hear. This combination of seeing and hearing pervades Calvin''s theology, from his understanding of the self-revelation of God the Creator to his development of the self-manifestation of God the Redeemer in Jesus Christ. According to Zachman, Calvin maintains the same linking of seeing and hearing in our relationships with other human beings: we must always hold together what we see in others'' gestures and actions with what we hear in their words, so that the hidden thoughts of their hearts might be manifested to us.Zachman''s nuanced argument that Calvin holds image and word, manifestation and proclamation, in an inseparable relationship is relevant to all the major themes of Calvin''s theology. It constitutes a highly significant and surprising contribution to our knowledge of the Reformation and an invitation to further study of theological aesthetics."Randall C. Zachman''s Image and Word in the Theology of John Calvin may well become the standard introduction to the theology of John Calvin. Better than any book I know, Zachman makes sense of Calvin''s work and methods while capturing Calvin''s religious sensibilities in a way no other does. This may be the book that finally demolishes an older image of Calvin that much of the Calvin scholarship has been chipping away at for the last thirty years. Zachman''s fresh reading of Calvin makes a true scholarly contribution that could well shape Calvin studies--and broader late medieval and early modern studies that bump into Calvin--for the next generation." --Thomas J. Davis, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis"With this impressive study Randall Zachman has established himself as one of the foremost Calvin scholars in the world. His earlier works--The Assurance of Faith (a study of conscience in Luther and Calvin), and John Calvin as Teacher, Pastor and Theologian--were substantial contributions to Calvin studies, but this large volume is the capstone of many years of immersing himself in the Calvinian corpus. Developing two major motifs of the living images of God the Creator and God the Redeemer, the author treats a wide variety of themes in Calvin''s theology in a fresh and creative way. This is a monumental accomplishment. Written in a lively, lucid manner, this work should be of interest not only to Calvin scholars but also to a more general readership." --I. John Hesselink, emeritus, Western Theological Seminary "Most students of John Calvin concentrate on his use of words and make of

Caring For Future Generations:  Jewish, Christian And Islamic Perspectives

Product : Caring For Future Generations: Jewish, Christian And Islamic Perspectives
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are increasingly discovering that what unites them is more important than what divides them. Many now acknowledge that an interreligious dialogue going beyond faith and spiritual fellowship to a common struggle for justice can enrich a holistic vision through a complementarity of perspectives. It is this spirit of interreligious dialogue that has inspired this volume and the conference on which it is based. Using as a focal point the conceptual framework of an abiding respect for human rights, in particular the rights of future generations, the contributors demonstrate that the three monotheistic faiths share several basic convictions, such as the need to protect our Earth for the benefit of our progeny, the fundamental unity of the human family, and the unity of past, present, and future generations.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The American debut of a highly acclaimed Spanish writer: a sly, acerbic novel about love—or the end of love—and how hard it can be to let go.There’s a lot about Joan-Marc that his second wife doesn’t know—and that he now sets out to tell her, come what may. He begins with his disastrous first marriage to an American named Helen, and the vacation they took in a last-ditch attempt to save their relationship. From there Joan-Marc unfurls the story of his life, from early memories of adolescence to a reckoning with mortality in his forties: friendships he abandoned, women he wronged, the wide swathe he cut across polite society in Madrid and Barcelona. Joan-Marc may be the kind of man we love to hate, yet his caustic wit, nostalgia, and self-pity are ultimately as winning as they are devastating.Here is an audacious new voice, an unapologetic portrait of an antihero navigating the perilous shoals of modern life—a man struggling with long-held illusions about the inexorable forward march of time.

Product : My Life As A Foreign Country: A Memoir
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : In 2003, Sergeant Brian Turner crossed the line of departure with a convoy of soldiers headed into the Iraqi desert. Now he lies awake each night beside his sleeping wife, imagining himself as a drone aircraft, hovering over the terrains of Bosnia and Vietnam, Iraq and Northern Ireland, the killing fields of Cambodia and the death camps of Europe. In this breathtaking memoir, award-winning poet Brian Turner retraces his war experience—pre-deployment to combat zone, homecoming to aftermath. Free of self-indulgence or self-glorification, his account combines recollection with the imagination''s efforts to make reality comprehensible. Across time, he seeks parallels in the histories of others who have gone to war, especially his taciturn grandfather (World War II), father (Cold War), and uncle (Vietnam). Turner also offers something that is truly rare in a memoir of violent conflict—he sees through the eyes of the enemy, imagining his way into the experience of the other. Through it all, he paints a devastating portrait of what it means to be a soldier and a human being.

Tolstoy's Political Thought

Product : Tolstoy's Political Thought
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910), besides writing famous novels such as War and Peace, also wrote on political thought, especially later in his life, putting forward a political philosophy which might be termed Christian anarchism. This book provides a comprehensive overview of Tolstoy''s political thought. It outlines in a systematic way Tolstoy''s thought, which was originally articulated unsystematically in diverse, often informal writing, such as pamphlets, letters and speeches, as well as books, and in his novels, where Tolstoy''s thinking is put forward implicitly through the novels'' characters. The book sets out the basic themes of Tolstoy''s political thought: his acceptance of the teachings of Jesus, his criticism of the way in which Jesus''s teachings have been preached by the church through traditional creeds and dogma, his passionate rejection of political violence both by the state and those working for reform, his plea for a non-violent response to violence and injustice, and his call for society to forego its institutional shackles and enact a community of peace, love and justice. The book also includes background information on the Russia of Tolstoy''s time, including the religious context; and a discussion of how Tolstoy''s political thought has been received, both by his admirers, who included Gandhi, and his critics.

Boarding School Syndrome: The Psychological Trauma Of The 'privileged' Child

Product : Boarding School Syndrome: The Psychological Trauma Of The 'privileged' Child
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Boarding School Syndromeis an analysis of the trauma of the ''privileged'' child sent to boarding school at a young age. Innovative and challenging,Joy Schaverienoffers a psychological analysis of the long-established British and colonial preparatory and public boarding school tradition. Richly illustrated with pictures and the narratives of adult ex-boarders in psychotherapy, the book demonstrates how some forms of enduring distress in adult life may be traced back to the early losses of home and family. Developed from clinical research and informed by attachment and child development theories ¿Boarding School Syndrome¿ is a new term that offers a theoretical framework on which the psychotherapeutic treatment of ex-boarders may build.Divided into four parts, History: In the Name of Privilege; Exile and Healing; Broken Attachments: A Hidden Trauma, and The Boarding School Body, the book includes vivid case studies of ex-boarders in psychotherapy. Their accounts reveal details of the suffering endured: loss, bereavement and captivity are sometimes compounded by physical, sexual and psychological abuse. Here,Joy Schaverienshows how many boarders adopt unconscious coping strategies including dissociative amnesia resulting in a psychological split between the ''home self'' and the ''boarding school self''. This pattern may continue into adult life, causing difficulties in intimate relationships, generalized depression and separation anxiety amongst other forms of psychological distress.Boarding School Syndromedemonstrates how boarding school may damage those it is meant to be a reward and discusses the wider implications of this tradition. It will be essential reading for psychoanalysts, Jungian analysts, psychotherapists, art psychotherapists, counsellors and others interested in the psychological, cultural and international legacy of this tradition including ex-boarders and their partners.¿

Principles of Fire Risk Assessment in Buildings

Product : Principles of Fire Risk Assessment in Buildings
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This book arrives at just the right time to facilitate understanding of performance-based fire risk assessment in buildings – an integral part of the global shift in policy away from traditional prescriptive codes. Yung, an internationally recognised expert on the subject of fire risk assessment, introduces the basic principles and techniques that help the reader to understand the various methodologies that are currently in place or being proposed by different organisations. Through his illustration of basic principles and techniques he enables the reader to conduct their own fire risk assessments. He demonstrates how the probabilities of fire scenarios are assessed based on the probabilities of success and failure of fire protection measures that are in place. He also shows how the consequences of fire scenarios are assessed based on the intensity and speed of  fire and smoke spread, the probability and speed of occupant response and evacuation, and the effectiveness and speed of fire department response and rescue efforts. Yung’s clear and practical approach to this highly topical subject enables the reader to integrate the various tools available into a quantitative framework that can be used for decision making. He brings an invaluable resource to all those involved in fire engineering and risk assessment, including students, academics, building designers, fire protection engineers, structural engineers, regulators and risk analysts.

Category : Books>Food and Drink>Beverages
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The concept of terroir is one of the most celebrated and controversial subjects in wine today. Most will agree that well-made wine has the capacity to express “somewhereness,” a set of consistent aromatics, flavors, or textures that amount to a signature expression of place. But for every advocate there is a skeptic, and for every writer singing praises related to terroir there is a study or a detractor seeking to debunk terroir as a myth. Wine and Place examines terroir using a multitude of voices and multiple points of view—from science to literature, from winemakers to wine critics—seeking not to prove its veracity but to explore its pros, its cons, and its other aspects. This comprehensive anthology lets the reader come to one's own conclusion about terroir.

Her work is waylaid by the arrival of three women—Julia, Camille, and Susan—all of whom have launched a recent and spontaneous friendship that will uproot them completely and redirect their lives. Susan, the most adventurous of the three, has enticed them to subvert expectations of staid retirement by taking a lease on a big, beautiful house in Tuscany. Though novices in a foreign culture, their renewed sense of adventure imbues each of them with a bright sense of bravery, a gusto for life, and a fierce determination to thrive. But how? With Kit’s friendship and guidance, the three friends launch themselves into Italian life, pursuing passions long-forgotten—and with drastic and unforeseeable results.

Got a Revolution!: The Turbulent Flight of Jefferson Airplane

Product : Got a Revolution!: The Turbulent Flight of Jefferson Airplane
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The most successful and influential rock band to emerge from San Francisco during the 1960s, Jefferson Airplane created the sound of a generation. Their smash hits Somebody to Love and White Rabbit virtually invented the era''s signature pulsating psychedelic music and, during one of the most tumultuous times in American history, came to personify the decade''s radical counterculture. In this groundbreaking biography of the band, veteran music writer and historian Jeff Tamarkin produces a portrait of the band like none that has come before it. Having worked closely with Jefferson Airplane for more than a decade, Tamarkin had unprecedented access to the band members, their families, friends, lovers, crew members, fellow musicians, cultural luminaries, even the highest-ranking politicians of the time. More than just a definitive history, Got a Revolution! is a rock legend unto itself. Jann Wenner, editor-in-chief and publisher of Rolling Stone, wrote, The classic [Jefferson] Airplane lineup were both architects and messengers of a psychedelic age, a liberation of mind and body that profoundly changed American art, politics, and spirituality. It was a renaissance that could only have been born in San Francisco, and the Airplane, more than any other band in town, spread the good news nationwide.

History of the Empire, Volume II: Books 5-8

Product : History of the Empire, Volume II: Books 5-8
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The History of Herodian (born ca. 178–179 CE) covers a period of the Roman empire from the death of the emperor Marcus Aurelius (180 CE) to the accession of Gordian III (238), half a century of turbulence, in which we can see the onset of the revolution which, in the words of Gibbon, will ever be remembered, and is still felt by the nations of the earth. In these years, a succession of frontier crises and a disastrous lack of economic planning established a pattern of military coups and increasing cultural pluralism.Of this revolutionary epoch we know all too little. The selection of chance has destroyed all but a handful of the literary sources that deal with the immediate post- Antonine scene. Herodian''s work is one of the few that have survived, and it has come down to us completely intact. Of the author we know virtually nothing, except that he served in some official capacity in the empire of which he wrote. His History was apparently produced for the benefit of people in the Greek-speaking half of the Roman empire. It betrays the faults of an age when truth was distorted by rhetoric and stereotypes were a substitute for sound reason. But it is an essential document for any who would try to understand the nature of the Roman empire in an era of rapidly changing social and political institutions.The Loeb Classical Library edition of Herodian is in two volumes.

Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : In this unique study, Stephen Levine examines the particular characteristics of New Zealand Jewry, one of the most exotic Jewish communities in the world. Because it is so far from the rest of world Jewry, this community must continually face the challenge of Jewish continuity. Levine draws attention to the diversity in Jewish identity among New Zealand''s Jews, as well as to the institutionalization of new relationships between the Jewish community and Israel. Ultimately, however, Levine stresses the community''s interaction with world Jewry, despite the many challenges facing such a small and remote population. The New Zealand Jewish Community will be an essential volume for students of Judaism, the sociology of religion, contemporary history, and political studies.

Global Perspectives On Social Issues:  Pornography

Product : Global Perspectives On Social Issues: Pornography
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Pornography is a volatile issue in the United States_depending on the source of opinion, it can be viewed as either demeaning or empowering. Global Perspectives on Social Issues: Pornography asks whether the issue is similarly contentious around the world. Richard Procida and Rita Simon collect in this volume a wealth of data on laws, regulations, and public opinion regarding pornography in a wide sample of countries in both the West and the East. The authors pose and discuss the following questions: Is censorship of pornography correlated with authoritarianism? Does the censorship of pornography lead to the censorship of other more valuable speech, such as political or artistic speech? How much of a factor is pornography in violence against women and the sexual abuse of children? Is the United States more, or less, prudish than other nations around the world, particularly other Western democratic nations? The book reveals a variety of approaches to the treatment of pornography, providing sociologists, legal scholars, and women''s rights activists with a valuable reference tool.

Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This authoritative study examines Russia''s four key succession crises: after Stalin''s death, throughout Khrushchev''s primacy, during the implosion of the USSR, and with Putin''s ascent to power. The distinguished authors argue that the common denominator has been the absence of a transparent, non-arbitrary, and lawful mechanism for the transfer of political power. Consequently, contenders for leadership have engaged in vicious power struggles followed by pseudo-legitimation of the victor. As Moscow reemerges as a major international actor, its unpredictability domestically triggers after shocks well beyond Russia''s borders. Drawing on newly available primary sources, this book provides essential insights for practitioners and students of policy alike.

Elin Wägner's Alarm Clock: Ecofeminist Theory in the Interwar Era

Product : Elin Wägner's Alarm Clock: Ecofeminist Theory in the Interwar Era
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This book analyses the ideas of the Swedish journalist, feminist, and literary author Elin Wägner (1882-1949), as conveyed in her book Väckarklocka (1941), in a European feminist context. This context is presented in terms of three elements. Firstly, the German sociologist/educationalist Mathilde Vaerting and her sociology of power played an important role in Wägner''s development of a theory of matriarchy. Secondly, the influence of the Austrian feminist Rosa Mayreder and her theory of masculine civilization and feminine culture are analyzed in relation to Wägner''s development of what might be called an early ecological feminism. Thirdly, the mainly unknown Women''s Organization for World Order (WOWO) is presented. 0s and 1930s, which wanted to strengthen women''s position and confidence as political citizens by providing them with a historical past where women ruled (matriarchy). Thereby they not only reinvented a past, but also revitalized the emergence or eternity of patriarchy. These women discussed the possibility of women offering an alternative to the prevailing order. A special analysis is made of Mayreder''s and Wägner''s way of discussing what woman is and in what ways she can challenge the system. Both argued that women ought to have the same rights and duties as men, but that this should not require them to adapt to the distorted male system. This study argues that this position, easily characterized as essentialist in modern feminist terms, is in fact functional and strongly emancipatory in its time and context. In this reevaluation of Väckarklocka Katarina Leppänen has established this important Swedish novel as a text central to the development of the feminist movement. Elin Wägner''s Alarm Clock is a book suitable for students of Swedish Literature and European Feminism.

U.s.-africa Relations: From Clinton To Obama

Product : U.s.-africa Relations: From Clinton To Obama
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : U.S.-Africa Relations: From Clinton to Obama is an examination and analysis of U.S.-Africa relations during the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama administrations. It covers the entire continent with an inclusion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Nigeria, South Africa, Ethiopia, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Uganda, and Rwanda. Some of the issues addressed in the analysis include the militarization of Africa within the context of the war on terror and the creation of the Africa Command; the Arab Spring and questions concerning the U.S. role in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya; the Great Lakes region and the role or lack thereof of the United States, beginning with a discussion of U.S. support for various leaders from Mobutu (DRC) to Kabila (DRC) to Kagame (Rwanda), and Museveni (Uganda) who did and do not act in accordance with the U.S. policy of encouraging democracy. The role of Africans in U.S.-Africa relations is examined in the book. For example, many African leaders expressed their disapproval of the creation of the Africa Command, and African leaders refused to have it housed on their soil. The book discusses how African leaders and Africans can work with the United States to encourage economic development by establishing and upholding the rule of law, respecting human rights, and creating and maintaining transparency in the government and business activities. The role of African-descended people in U.S.-Africa relations is also addressed in terms of African American celebrities, scholars, and businesspeople.In sum, it appears on the surface that the United States has become more involved in African affairs due to new post-Cold War realities-it is the only remaining superpower; the war on terror extends to Africa; more Africans have migrated to the United States; and trade relations have deepened due to the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act and the need to import oil and gas from various African countries. At the same time, the U.S. policy has not veered far from national security interests and the promotion of democracy regardless of who is in the White House.

Israel And Settler Society

Product : Israel And Settler Society
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The struggle between Israel and the Palestinians is not unique -- whatever the news media may suggest. Lorenzo Veracini argues that the conflict is best understood in terms of colonialism. Like many other societies, Israel is a settler society. Looking in detail at the evolution of other colonial regimes -- apartheid South Africa, French Algeria and Australia -- Veracini presents a thoughtful interpretation of the dynamics of colonialism, offering a clear framework within which to understand the middle east crisis.Veracini challenges two important myths: firstly, that the Israeli-Palestinian dispute is unique and defies comparative approaches; and secondly that the struggle is mainly based in nationality and religion and therefore different to typical colonial conflicts. On the contrary, Veracini shows how Israeli society is organised along apartheid lines -- and that apartheid was not unique to South Africa, but a common feature of colonisation. He examines wars of decolonization, and conflicts where whole native populations were all but eradicated -- as in Australia. Comparing and contrasting these with the more recent history of Israel and Palestine, he offers a critical perspective on colonialism as well as important new insights into patterns of imperialism today.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Creative industries in China provides a fresh account of China’s emerging commercial cultural sector. The author shows how developments in Chinese art, design and media industries are reflected in policy, in market activity, and grassroots participation. Never has the attraction of being a media producer, an artist, or a designer in China been so enticing. National and regional governments offer financial incentives; consumption of cultural goods and services have increased; creative workers from Europe, North America and Asia are moving to Chinese cities; culture is increasingly positioned as a pillar industry. But what does this mean for our understanding of Chinese society? Can culture be industrialised following the low-cost model of China’s manufacturing economy. Is the national government really committed to social liberalisation? This engaging book is a valuable resource for students and scholars interested in social change in China. It draws on leading Chinese scholarship together with insights from global media studies, economic geography and cultural studies.

The book begins by examining the foundations of institutional ethnography in women''s movements, differentiating it from other related sociologies; the second part offers an ontology of the social; and the third illustrates this ontology through an array of institutional ethnography examples.

Zen Buddhism and Hasidism: A Comparative Study

Product : Zen Buddhism and Hasidism: A Comparative Study
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : In this work Jacob Yuroh Teshima juxtaposes two religions whose origins are completely different: Zen Buddhism and Hasidic Judaism. The purpose of this comparative study is not to determine which religion is superior, but rather to compare their functional equivalents. After presenting backgrounds of the two religions, Dr. Teshima examines the Zen Buddhist practice of zazen and Hasidism''s devequth, or meditation on God. He then discusses how each religion comes to terms with the major obstacle in the practice of comtemplation: distracting thoughts. Teshima compares conceptions of man offered by the two religions, making clear their fundamental differences concerning the nature of selfhood and source of fulfillment. The study concludes with an examination of how the two religions come to terms with the insecurity of life and what it is that gives life meaning and significance. Contents: Introduction to Zen Buddhism and Hasidism; Zazen and Devequth; The Problem of Strange Thoughts; Annihilating Selfhood and Attaining Ecstasy; The Concept of Man; Insecurity of Life: The Hasidic Approach to Exile and the Zen Approach to Birth and Death.

Silent Joe: A Novel

Product : Silent Joe: A Novel
Category : Books>Mystery and Suspense
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Scarred for life by a brutal father, Joe Trona found a safe haven and a loving childhood in the home of the couple who adopted him. Now he spends his days as a deputy for the Orange County sheriff''s department and his nights as a driver and aide to Will Trona, the influential politician who rescued him from the Hillside Children''s Home. An expert in firearms and the martial arts, Joe has been backing Will up for a long time. Still, his skill isn''t enough to keep Will alive, and when his father is killed right in front of Joe''s eyes, the young deputy vows to avenge him. But first he must find out how the kidnapping of a tycoon''s daughter, a scam to line the pockets of Will Trona''s political enemies, the murder of two Guatemalan immigrants, the unholy activities of a charismatic minister who''s a close friend of the Trona family, and the strange alliance of two rival L.A. gangs are connected to Will''s death.Every secret Joe uncovers leads deeper into his beloved father''s murky past and ultimately his own. But the reader stays right with this extraordinary man as he battles his demons and ultimately vanquishes them. Author T. Jefferson Parker (The Blue Hour, Red Light, Laguna Heat) is one of the best thriller writers working today. Fans of Michael Connelly and Dennis Lehane--and Raymond Chandler, for that matter--will appreciate Parker''s ability to create a complex, fascinating, and fully realized hero whose inner reality is brilliantly revealed by his actions. Will Trona is an equally intriguing invention; while ultimately he is an enigma, we remain convinced that he is worthy of his son''s devotion. Silent Joe is a mindful, intelligent novel you can''t put down. It should break Parker out with the really big boys of mystery fiction, the million-sellers with the marquee names. In fact, he''s a much better writer than most of them, and unlike many, he never tells the same story twice. --Jane Adams

Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : How does one live for God? Really live for God, in a way that provides both intimacy with him and yet adventure in this world? And how does one live for God in a culture that gives him a nod and a wink, but truly worships everything but him? And most importantly, what impact could a life, truly on fire for God, have on this world?Through an insightful and penetrating look at scriptural examples, Renegade challenges readers to live radical lives for God in a culture diametrically opposed to him. Author Vince Antonucci encourages readers to reconsider what it means to live for God, teaches them how to cultivate a real relationship with him, and then equips them to discover their unique calling. For all those times we feel like we''re running on empty, Antonucci provides encouragement and inspiration for readers to live out a risky, renegade faith.

Legacy: A Step-By-Step Guide To Writing Personal History

Product : Legacy: A Step-By-Step Guide To Writing Personal History
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : In this practical guide to capturing those memories that have been stored away, Linda Spence provides the questions that are the keys to unlocking the memories that make up a life.Beyond the vital statistics are the personal stories that tell what it was like, what we did, and why we did it, how we feel about our choices, and what our circumstances were. Through encouraging coaching, shared memories, and open-ended questions, the process of producing a personal history becomes intriguing and engaging.With Legacy the possibilities expand: a personal record is preserved—with its myths, traditions, joys, pains, gains, and losses; a family opens a potential dialogue that will last for generations; the writer has an opportunity for insight and resolution; the culture of a time and place is noted; the tradition of personal story is revitalized, and our present and future find nourishment and knowledge in the past.Either as a gift that can act as a shared experience as the memories are recounted or as a personal way to take account of one’s experiences, often long since forgotten, Legacy is indeed a way to get one’s story down. Linda Spence writes and collects Legacy stories in Mill Valley, California, where she lives and works as a consultant.

H. C. For Life, That Is To Say...

Product : H. C. For Life, That Is To Say...
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : H. C. for Life, That Is to Say . . . is Derrida''s literary critical recollection of his lifelong friendship with Hélène Cixous. The main figure that informs Derrida''s reading here is that of taking sides. While Hélène Cixous in her life and work takes the side of life, for life, Derrida admits always feeling drawn to the side of death. Rather than being an obvious choice, taking the side of life is an act of faith, by wagering one''s life on life. H. C. for Life sets up and explores this interminable argument between Derrida and Cixous as to what death has in store deep within life itself, before the end. In addition to being a memoir, it is also a theoretical confrontation-for example about the meaning of might and omnipotence, and a philosophical and philological analysis of the crypts within the vast oeuvre of Hélène Cixous. Finally, the book is Derrida''s tribute to the thought of the woman whom he regards as one of the great French poets, writers, and thinkers of our time.

Where to Find What: A Handbook to Reference Service

Product : Where to Find What: A Handbook to Reference Service
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Intended primarily as a ready reference source for librarians, this book will also be of use to the library patron in search of the right book to answer a specific question.

The authors have chosen over 600 subject headings as those most likely to encompass the requests received at the average reference service desk. Also included in this edition are Internet website addresses for selected publications and other useful sources of information. Brief annotations on the arrangement and features of the various sources are provided.

The A to Z of the Persian Gulf War 1990 - 1991

Product : The A to Z of the Persian Gulf War 1990 - 1991
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Contrary to many assessments that immediately followed the end of the 1991 Persian Gulf War, that war was neither short nor decisive. The 1991 conflict was the dramatic manifestation of long-standing antagonisms among the principal participants, and its results continue to have a profound effect on the region, a fact that can be seen most clearly in the current U.S.-occupation of Iraq. It is therefore important to determine, on the diplomatic side, just how the war got started, how it was fought, and whether the dramatic ground campaign should have exceeded the mere hundred hours it lasted in order to bring about a more decisive conclusion. With the seemingly endless follow-up to the war continuing, The A to Z of the Persian Gulf War 1990-1991 draws together the results of assessments of the war by a multitude of commentators. This is accomplished through an introduction, a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, a bibliography, appendixes, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on many of the significant civilian and military persons, crucial diplomatic and political actions, as well as the essential military aspects, including the strategy and tactics, the encounters and battles, and the forces and weapons deployed by both sides. As the situation in the Middle East continues to deteriorate, this reference provides an important historical perspective on an increasingly critical issue.

Teaching The Commons: Place, Pride, And The Renewal Of Community

Product : Teaching The Commons: Place, Pride, And The Renewal Of Community
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Reaching all the way back to the classical and medieval past, Teaching the Commons chronicles ideas and resulting policies that have shaped contemporary rural life and living in much of the industrial West. The book examines philosophical assumptions and charts their evolution into conventional wisdom about how human beings should meet their needs, govern themselves, and educate their children. Further, this book examines how policies emanating from these assumptions have slowly eroded the vitality of rural communities, finding that if there is sufficient interest in saving what is left of rural America, an educational agenda at the local level needs to be embraced by America''s rural schools. Using concrete ideas generated in rural schools across the country, Teaching the Commons demonstrates that it is possible to simultaneously revitalize rural schools and communities. Through concerted curricular and pedagogical attention to place-the immediate locality-schools can contribute to rebuilding community in rural America on an educational foundation. Arguing that vital, self-governing communities rather than self-interested individuals represent the greatest hope for American democracy, Teaching the Commons lays out an institutional foundation that would turn the cultivation of civic virtue into an educational goal every bit as important and attainable as education for success in the economic market.

10 Must-Have Holiday Party Dresses To Get You Through The Season
Posted on Thursday November 16, 2017

Amidst holiday parties, the preparation of feasts, and a glut of friends and family to purchase gifts for, it's hard to tell if the holidays are the most wonderful time of year or the most stressful.

You have enough on your plate as it is; the last thing you want to concern yourself with is finding a dress for all those holiday celebrations. Sometimes you just wish someone would do the work for you.

Well, you're in luck! We've curated a list of 10 must-have holiday party dresses that will dazzle your colleagues, friends, and family. And just like Kate Middleton, we encourage repeat outfits at multiple parties if you're seeing different friend groups.

1. Babaton Giovani Dress

This low-key LBD is versatile, but more importantly, it's comfortable. One of the worst things about getting dressed up is having to strap yourself into a body-constricting outfit. Babaton's Giovani dress is made of ponte fabric, so there's give, but also enough structure so you can show off your figure.

Where to get it:Aritzia, $125

2. Privacy Please Brisco Mini-Dress

The mustard-tone trend continues to thrive and we're happy to oblige with this metallic mini-dress, featuring flutter sleeves and a waist-cinching belt. Be warned: this dress demands attention, so don't be surprised when you're swarmed with compliments.

Where to get it:Nordstrom, $223.51

3. Twik Ruffle Tartan Dress

Holiday parties are not complete without some red tartan! The traditional Scottish pattern is always a festive choice. The ruffle hem on this affordable option from Quebec-based brand Simons adds a little extra sass to a timeless print.

Where to get it: Simons, $49

4. Paillette Party Midi Slip

Wearing sequins can be dicey, but we can only marvel at this berry slip dress from Free People that turns heads for all the right reasons.

Where to get it: Free People, $125.44

5. Limited Edition Velvet Dress

Sophistication comes in the form of this holiday-appropriate dress from Spanish retailer Massimo Dutti. A simple silhouette is made spectacular with the addition of cut-out bow sleeves and a stand-out colour. This limited-edition dress will be gone in a blink if you don't act fast.

Where to get it: Massimo Dutti, $275

6. Glittery Velour Dress

If you're looking for something on-trend and affordable, look no further than H&M's festive holiday dress options. This glittering velour mini dress can even be dressed down and worn with denim.

Where to get it: H&M, $59.99

7. Ultimate Tux Blazer Mini-Dress With Pearl Buttons

The menswear trend lives on and we wouldn't have it any other way. This tuxedo-inspired dress from ASOS is great for the no-nonsense party-goer.

Where to get it:ASOS, $57.06

8. Flowing Midi Dress With Long Sleeves

This festive emerald green midi dress from Zara offers everything we love about vintage cuts and details without having to sift through racks of clothing at our favourite vintage boutique.

Where to get it: Zara, $99.90

9. Velvet Winston Shift Dress

Has Reese Witherspoon ever let you down? The stylish actress launched her own clothing line, Draper James, and offers up this sweet velvet-and-lace combo we can envision the Oscar winner rocking.

Where to get it: Draper James, $250

10. Yumi Kim Save Leading Lady Dress

Not all holiday parties are created equal. If you're headed to a fancier affair, you'll need a dress to suit the occasion. This Yumi Kim lace dress featuring a regal mock neck collar, tonal lining and scalloped edging hits the perfect balance of sophisticated and sexy.

Where to get it: Shopbop, $275.29

Winter Boots That Look As Good As They Feel
Posted on Tuesday November 14, 2017

While some parts of the country have already been hit with a coating of snow, it won't be long before all of us Canadians will be trudging through slush, sleet, and icy rains.

If, like us, you're shivering at the thought of Mother Nature's frosty weather, then it's time to seriously consider your winter boot options.

Below are a selection of our favourite winter boots to ensure a season of toasty warm tootsies without sacrificing style.

Kamik Sienna Waterproof Boot

While the rustic outdoorsy styling of the Kamik Sienna boot (Meghan Markle is a fan of the Canadian heritage brand) initially caught our eye, the Thinsulate insulation and lightweight, slip-resistant soles solidified this pair's spot on our list.

Furthermore, Kamik is committed to sustainable manufacturing, with a zero waste target in their plants, 73 per cent domestic production, and a recycling program in place.

Bhava Aspen Hiker

The eco answer to the traditional shearling-lined hiker, this vegan pair from conscientious footwear brand Bhava features Italian vegan shearling and a comfort flex rubber sole, artisanally crafted in Spain and road tested on the tough city streets of New York City.

Vans SK8-HI MTE

For the sneaker-head who refuses to wear boots, these weatherized high tops could be the perfect compromise for facing the elements. Designed with warm linings including a heat retention layer between sockliner and outsole, and a lug sole tested for maximum traction, this sneaker/boot hybrid also features reinforced toecaps to ensure long-wearing durability.

Manitobah Waterproof Tamarack Mukluk

Rated up to -32C, the Tamarak Mukluk features rubber soles displaying Indigenous artwork that details life energy and connection to nature, and uses traditional waterproofing methods.

Committed to supporting Indigenous communities, Manitoba Mukluks invites its customers to direct a portion of their sale to a Manitobah community program of their choice.

Bogs Kettering Boot

While slip-on boots may rate well with the five and under set, sometimes us adults also need an easy fix when we're running out the door in extreme temperatures. Enter the Bogs Kettering boot: rated from temperate to -30C, these boots feature a pull-on handle, Neo-Tech Lite insulation, a moisture-wicking lining, and an insole with odour-resistant technology in every urbanite's favourite colour, black.

Khombu Andie Waterproof Boot

We love the look of the Fair Isle print and the faux fur trim on the Andie Boot from Khombu, perfect for chalet getaways or stylish trips within the city. Not just about looks, this practical boot is waterproof, micro fleece-lined, with Thermolite insulation and a memory foam footbed.

Cougar Creek Waterproof Winter Boots

The festive styling of these cute-as-a-button Creek Winter Boots from Cougar is getting us in the mood for trekking around town and the countryside. We can't wait to slip into the plush lining and padded insole, knowing the rubber sole and waterproof outer will keep our feet warm and dry.

Giuseppe Zanotti Snow Boots With Faux Fur

The everything après ski boot, these killer cuties from Giuseppe Zanotti are styled with a faux fur cuff and metallic plate to cover the Velcro ankle strap. Can't you picture Mariah Carey wearing these babies in Aspen?

Hunter Boots Original Snow Boots

From the brand that brought us iconic rain boots comes this winter-resistant snow boot, complete with a zipped outer shell and drawstring detailing to keep out the cold. Neoprene-lined with a padded sole to minimize ankle slipping, we can't wait to face the elements in these beauties.

Joe Fresh Knit Snow Boots

The latest snow boot from Joe Fresh, this classically cute style is 100 per cent synthetic, with a faux fur lining and pretty knit, ideal to keep you warm and winter-adventure ready.

Roots Nordic Boot Warrior

These gorgeously rugged boots from iconic Canadian brand Roots are available for both men and women, and are designed to withstand severe cold and icy conditions while keeping your feet cozy and dry.

Aquatalia Kiara Boot

Lupita Nyong'o Has No Time For Magazine's 'Eurocentric' Airbrushing
Posted on Friday November 10, 2017

Lupita Nyong'o.

Even though it's 2017 and women of all cultures and backgrounds are finally being celebrated for their diverse beauty, it seems that not even an Oscar winner can get away with having natural hair.

On Thursday night, actress Lupita Nyong'o took to social media to criticize Grazia magazine for cutting off, and smoothing out, her curly hair.

Posting photographs on Twitter and Instagram, the 34-year-old "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" star showed what she looked like before and after the editors used Photoshop on her image.

In the before pic, Nyong'o is seen rocking a curly ponytail, while in the after pic, the actress' ponytail is gone, replaced with a smooth, super short crop.

In the caption, Nyong'o explains that the magazine clearly photoshopped her image to "fit a more Eurocentric notion" of beauty.

"Disappointed that @GraziaUK edited out & smoothed my hair to fit a more Eurocentric notion of what beautiful hair looks like. [don't touch my hair]," Nyong'o wrote on Twitter.

In a lengthier Instagram post, the "Black Panther" star wrote that it's important that women of colour be embraced for their beauty, "kinky, coily hair" and all.

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh

In a statement to The Telegraph, a representative of Grazia magazine apologized to the actress for changing her hair type and noted that they didn't "alter" the image. (Even though they clearly did.)

"Grazia is committed to representing diversity throughout its pages and apologises unreservedly to Lupita Nyong'o.

"Grazia magazine would like to make it clear that at no point did they make any editorial request to the photographer for Lupita Nyong'o's hair to be altered on this week's cover, nor did we alter it ourselves. But we apologise unreservedly for not upholding the highest of editorial standards in ensuring that that we were aware of all alterations that had been made."

After Nyong'o posted her criticism, social media turned out to support the actress.

This incident is far from the first and only time the beauty industry has airbrushed women of colour to fit a specific (namely white) ideal.

Just recently, Solange Knowles called out The London Evening Standard for altering her braids in an image that appeared on the publication's cover. Subsequently, the Standard apologized to the singer for digitally removing her hair.

In a statement, the Standard said: "The decision to amend the photograph was taken for layout purposes, but plainly we made the wrong call and we have offered our unreserved apologies to Solange."

In that cover story, Solange described how important braiding was to her, noting, "It is an act of beauty, an act of convenience and an act of tradition."

Tabria Majors Proves Plus-Size Models Look Good In Victoria's Secret Underwear Too
Posted on Thursday November 09, 2017

Brooklyn, N.Y.-based model Tabria Majors is challenging rigid fashion standards after recreating a series of her favorite Victoria's Secret photos.

Victoria's Secret is facing stiff new competition from a plus-size, Brooklyn, N.Y.-based model.

The idea that the lingerie company largely showcases thinner models didn't sit right with Tabria Majors.

She scoured through her favourite outfits from Victoria's Secret to prove, as she says, "that curvy girls can rock (and sell) lingerie just as well as straight-size models."

The breathtaking photos she posted on Instagram and Twitter speak for themselves.

"Maybe I'll be a Victoria's Secret Angel this year for Halloween, since it ain't happening in real life," she wrote in an Instagram post on Oct. 31.

"I've been thinking about doing this for a while, and the pieces happened to come together," she said in an interview with HuffPost Canada. "I really want to open the discussion of inclusivity in mainstream media."

Majors said that the Victoria's Sercet has been a staple for decades but they have been repeating the same formula over and over.

"I just want to know why they, and so many other companies, don't cater to the average-sized woman."

It boggles the mind that higher-ups at the lingerie company won't include more plus-sized "angels" among the skinny ones the brand is famous for. Tip: Diversity sells. Literally.

"The main argument I've heard is that it's expensive, time-consuming, and companies don't have the proper resources to expand their sizes," Majors said.

Majors says plus-size industry is lucrative

"I personally don't believe that, primarily because the plus-size industry brings in billions of dollars each year, and the potential profit companies would make should counter any of their hesitations."

However, Sports Illustrated has definitely taken notice of Majors.

The model is currently a finalist for SI's Swim Search, where 15 women will debut their swimwear line and compete for a chance to be featured in the 2018 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

She's even bragged about her weight online to make it clear she is damn proud of how she looks.

"I'm Tabria Majors, I weigh 218 pounds, and I don't care if you hate my body because I love it," she wrote on Instagram in August.

And in doing so, she's joined famous plus-sized model and body-positive advocate Ashley Graham in fighting the weight stigma.

I'm Tabria Majors, I weigh 218 lbs, and I don't care if you hate my body because I love it 😊

A post shared by Tabria Majors (@tabriamajors) on

She's not the first to post shots of herself beside ads to highlight the lack of diversity — black model Deddeh Howard recreated a series of famous ads last year.

Androgynous model Rain Dove also reimagined Victoria's Secret shoots by Photoshopping their models' faces onto her body with the original image of herself beside them.

Hopefully, they'll understand that everyone ... shouldn't be 'punished' for their size.Tabria Majors

But she says major companies have to stop hesitating to showcase plus-size models.

"I'm sure there's an underlying reason that we're not aware of," Majors said. "Whether it's associated with costs or the company's image, but hopefully, they'll understand that everyone should be able to purchase any style of clothing, and shouldn't be 'punished' for their size."

Anyone at Victoria's Secret taking down notes?

These models are trying to bring you into the revolution. Stop missing it.

Oprah Gives Her Stamp Of Approval To This Canadian Sleepwear Company
Posted on Wednesday November 08, 2017

Oprah Winfrey arrives at the taping of 'Queen Sugar After-Show' on November 7, 2017 in California.

Everyone knows Oprah's stamp of approval is gold, which is why we can't help but freak out at the fact that the talk show queen has named a Canadian sleepwear company as one of her favourite things.

This year, The Sleep Shirt, a Vancouver- and Montreal-based sleepwear company, made the TV host's famous list. Specifically, Oprah noted the Blue Oxford Stripe Shirt as one she would wear as a stylish addition to a day outfit or for simply lounging at home.

"One of our editors wore this oxford cotton sleep shirt to the office with sandals and looked terrific," the 63-year-old revealed. "I'd relax in it at home or wear it as a cover-up. There might even be a few people who'd actually sleep in it."

Naturally, Sleep Shirt creator Alexandra Suhner-Isenberg was thrilled when she heard Oprah's positive review of her nightwear.

"She's such an influential figure, and there hasn't been a single person who hasn't been like 'oh my god' when we tell them the news," the designer told Flare. "To be recognized by such a major person and influencer is so great."

A post shared by Oprah (@oprah) on

Suhner-Isenberg modelled her nightwear after a 19th-century chemise she found at a vintage menswear store in London. She then founded her company in 2012 and has been creating stylish, oversized unisex sleepshirts ever since.

And thanks to the sleepwear trend, the designer's clothes have only been gaining in popularity over the years. Besides Oprah's list of favourite things, The Sleep Shirt has also been featured on Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle site, Goop.

Back in 2012, Suhner-Isenberg told the Vancouver Sun, "In terms of why people love them, we haven't reinvented the wheel, and you can find other brands that do night shirts, but we're known for them, and it's a great product."

Plus, if it's Oprah-approved, you know it's gotta be good!

Faux Fur And Fur-Free Winter Coats And Accessories That'll Keep You Warm This Winter
Posted on Friday November 03, 2017

Luxury giant Gucci's announcement last month to go fur-free in 2018 marks another inspiring step towards cruelty-free and conscientious fashion practices.

While fur is traditionally considered a common option for warmth in cold weather, numerous brands are making the choice to offer synthetic weatherproof fabrics and faux fur details to satisfy the demand for the functionality and aesthetic appeal of a fur coat or trim.

Stella McCartney has long sat at the helm of this movement, and Net-a-Porter announced in June that they would no longer be selling fur on their website, proving that the fashion industry doesn't need to harm animals to look chic.

Whether you want to invest in ethical, cruelty-free products, or are simply looking to stay stylish and warm, we're certain you'll find something to suit your liking in our roundup of fur-free and faux fur winter coats, jackets, hats, and scarves.

1. Frank And Oak Featherless Parka

The latest addition to the endlessly hip Queen Street West strip in Toronto, Frank And Oak offers more than up-to-the-minute style at reasonable prices — we recently discovered their parkas are proudly down-free (this parka in particular uses Thinsulate), and there's not a fur collar in sight.

2. Stella McCartney Fur Free Fur Coat

The OG of ethical practices and sustainable designs, Stella McCartney's #FurFreeFur Elina Coat is the ultimate in animal-friendly luxury. Impeccably designed and beautifully made, we're adding this faux fox fur coat to our dream wish list!

3. The Gap Denim Faux Fur Parka

Trust the Gap to do winter warmth right in denim. We're making a mad dash for this indigo parka with faux fur trim for a trendy transition towards the colder months.

4. Aldo Faux Fur Pom Pom Hat

We're happy to see a cruelty-free take on this trendy toque. This Aldo "Albenise" hat offers some stunning sparkle topped with the softest splash of faux fur.

5. Topshop Luxe Faux Fur Coat

What's not to love about this soft-as-a-bunny faux fur coat from Topshop? We'll be topping our party sparkles and LBDs with this little stunner throughout the season.

6. Lolë Morgan Jacket

Whether you're a bonafide ski sensation or more of a chalet aficionado, this bright jacket from Lolë will have you looking and feeling your best on the slopes. We're fans of the waterproof fabric, bright watermelon hue, and mesh-lined vents under the arms to keep us warm and dry.

7. Aritzia Faux Coyote Fur Pull-Through Scarf

BRB, rushing out to buy this gorgeous silk-lined, faux coyote fur scarf. Whether you're rocking the everyday glam look, or saving this piece for a truly special occasion, this is one winter accessory that you're going to want to own!

8. Old Navy Faux Fur Shearling Vest

We've gotta have this waist-length faux fur shearling vest from Old Navy. It would look stunning styled with jeans and a long sleeve tee, or popped on over a long floral dress to add a seasonal update to a summer favourite.

9. Joe Fresh Herringbone Coat

This grey herringbone coat makes our list for a classic topper that's long on style but won't break the bank. Leave it to Joe Fresh to cover all the necessary details (funnel collar, zip front with snap button closure for extra warmth!), perfect for a stylish transition from day to night.

10. Joe Fresh Hooded Puffer

Nothing says winter is here like the return of the puffer coat. Canada's signature staple for fighting the cold has seen several evolutions from the Michelin Man likeness to this stylish version from Joe Fresh. We love the slim fit and bum and thigh coverage, making our daily run to the dog park/school/grocery store that much more bearable.

11. Wully Outerwear Doe Parka

Serious about stylish outwear and animal kindness, Wully's website keeps a running total of how many animals are saved by shopping #CrueltyFree. We're obsessing over their women's Doe Parka: weatherproof, multiple pockets, and the cutest Canadiana red plaid lining. What more could we want to stay warm this winter?

12. Lululemon Run Fast Gloves

Leave it to Lululemon to make the perfect gloves with all the features: snap closure to keep the pair together, fold top for extra warmth, and sweat-wicking super soft fabric for winter runs or snowball fights.

13. Hoodlamb Ladies' Nordic Nightwatch Parka

Our pick for all-black-everything winter warmth, this 100 per cent vegan parka from Hoodlamb boasts a luscious faux fur removable trim, hemp and organic cotton outer shell, and a Thermore and EcoDown lining, designed to resist extreme cold in full weather resistant chic.

14. One Teaspoon Heartshaker Faux Fur Coat

With a little bit of rock 'n roll and a whole lot of vintage styling, we're voting this patchwork faux fur jacket with vegan leather trim an absolute showstopper.

15. Vaute 'The Lincoln Future' Coat

We can't wait to bundle up in this cozy full-length coat made of 100 per cent recycled, windproof, snow resistant ripstop, and insulated with Primaloft ECO, also made of 100 per cent recycled fibres. Customer reviews claim this coat is a game changer for those of us who don't exactly love winter and we'd have to agree: a drawstring hood, internal belt, and ribbing at the cuffs, as well as a pretty princess cut make this coat a winter wardrobe essential.

The 2017 Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra Is Here, And It's Fantastic
Posted on Thursday November 02, 2017

It's that time of year again.

Halloween is over, there's a hint of festivity in the air, snow dare we say is on the way, and it's all leading up to the one magical moment merrymakers young and old look forward to all year: The Victoria's Secret Fashion show.

The highlight of the show, the Fantasy Bra, was revealed Wednesday, and, as expected, it's fantastic.

The bra, designed by world-renowned jeweler Mouawad, is valued at US$2 million and is set by hand with nearly 6,000 gemstones: diamonds, yellow sapphires, and blue topaz in 18 karat gold, Victoria's Secret revealed. It took 350 hours to create.

Model Lais Ribeiro will wear the 2017 Champagne Nights Fantasy bra for the first time on the runway, Victoria's Secret announced Wednesday.

Ribeiro, 27, is the fourth black model to don the bra, Teen Vogue reports. Tyra Banks wore the bra in 1997 and 2004, Selita Ebanks had the honour in 2007, and Jasmine Tookes rocked the runway in last year's version.

Being chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra is a career-making moment for a Victoria's Secret runway model, also known as an "Angel," according to Refinery29.

Ribeiro is "beyond honoured," she wrote on Instagram.

"I am very happy and thankful for my Victoria's Secret family for trusting me and all the support from my on family, friends and fans," Ribeiro said.

I'm sorry but the pictures will just keep coming! 😜

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs Nov. 28.

The new collection will feature bras, underwear and lingerie in shimmering champagne shades.

What The Heck Is In Halloween Makeup Anyway?
Posted on Friday October 27, 2017

Unknown ingredients in Halloween makeup may spook you, but with some helpful tips and expert advice, painting your (or your little one's) face, this All Hallows' Eve will be a treat.

Narrowing down who or what you'll transform into is one problem, piecing the look together is another. But when it comes to things like face paint or makeup, it's worth spending a bit more on high-quality products to guarantee a safer experience for you and your kids.

Earlier on HuffPost:

In a study by the Breast Cancer Fund in 2016, 48 Halloween face paints were tested — all of which are marketed to kids. They found 21 of these products had trace amounts of at least one heavy metal, while some products contained as many as four metals. Some of these harmful ingredients included styrene, formaldehyde, lead, cadmium and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as toluene and benzene.

"You should buy the products at established costume stores, not pop-ups that open only for a few weeks before Halloween, or at your pharmacy where costume makeup kits are inexpensive, but are generally poorer quality," says Dr. Sandy Skotnicki, assistant professor at the University of Toronto and medical director at the Bay Dermatology Centre.

In this case, the more expensive the makeup the better quality, as it's not likely mass-produced."

When shopping for Halloween makeup, avoid any flimsy packaging with small amount of products (like those paint sets with numbers on them) — these tend to be products that are created for just the season.

"As dermatologists, we usually tell patients face creams that cost more are not that much better for your skin. But in this case, the more expensive the makeup, the better quality as it's not likely mass-produced," Skotnicki says.

Skotnicki also suggests avoiding any products that contain lead and ensuring the product has been vetted by government agencies. But you don't have to panic over things like dyes in face paint, since FD&C grade dyes are found in everything from lipstick to cake mixes. Simply, read the label.

The most common ingredients found in cheap makeup that could irritate the skin include alcohol, fragrances, artificial dyes, mica (which gives shimmer), glue, adhesives, waxes and oils.

Applying glue to bare skin doesn't require a dermatologist to tell you that this may cause a bad reaction.

Certain fluorescent or luminescent dyes can also contain colour additives that many not be government-approved, and that fake blood? It is made of a red dye that could cause irritation if it reacts with a petroleum base, notes healthcare site Vermont Urgent Care.

"Let your kids have fun and of course, use common sense. Applying glue to bare skin doesn't require a dermatologist to tell you that this may cause a bad reaction."

Skotnicki recommends testing a small amount of product on your child's ear a few days before if you want to ensure there are no allergies or irritations, and avoid adhesives and glues altogether on children under the age of two.

"Irritants are cumulative — it does not have to be one thing, it can be all together that cause the irritation and I would argue that is usually the case," Skotnicki said. "Another way of putting it — it is not the eye shadow, it's the eye shadow and eyeliner, and eyelashes all working together to cumulatively cause a reaction."

For makeup and special effects artist Samantha St John, Halloween is celebrated everyday in October. Her 28,000 followers on Instagram can expect scary (and sometimes gory) looks with her 31 days of Halloween posts. From split skulls to gouged-out eyes, St John's looks require safe products and an attentive skin care routine.

"My favourite things to use are water-activated paints for body art; silicone and alcohol paints for my special effects," explains the Vancouver-based artist.

I always use some type of barrier cream to create space between the prosthetic and my skin.

"Removal is the most important part... I always use some type of barrier cream to create space between the prosthetic and my skin, and I also make sure to safely remove adhered pieces."

St John recommends Telesis 5 remover and Isopropyl Myristate for heavier looks and prosthetics. For body paint, she uses the Franklin & Whitman's cleansing serum. St John also recommends avoiding latex, as it is a common irritant.

If using makeup from your personal collection on your trick or treaters, Courtney Kelly, beautyBOUTIQUE Manager for Shoppers Drug Mart says avoid sharing any eye products like mascara or eyeliner, and avoid using glitter around the eyes. Sanitize all lip products with rubbing alcohol before and after you use them.

As for your own costume, Kelly recommends playing with makeup already in your cosmetics bag.

The rise in popularity of colour correctors also means you may have some non-traditional colours at home.

"The great part of this is you already know whether or not the product works for you so you avoid any issues the night of," she said.

"The rise in popularity of colour correctors also means you may have some non-traditional colours at home that you can use as face paint instead of buying a new product."

To avoid any skin nightmare the following morning, use the golden rule when it comes to makeup and skincare — take it all off. Kelly recommends Dermablend Milk Makeup remover.

"Even if you get home late, don't forget to remove all of your eye makeup and apply a moisturizer before bed. Your skin will thank you in the morning."

You've Been Washing Your Face Wrong This Whole Time
Posted on Friday October 27, 2017

We get it — you want beautiful skin (who doesn't?), but your morning skincare routine usually consists of splashing some water on your face in between sips of coffee, or standing under the shower head and hoping for the best.

Thoroughly cleansing your skin is more important in the evening, anyway, when you want to remove all traces of that day's makeup and grime, right?

Wrong, according to a dermatologist.

Taking the time to properly cleanse your skin in the morning is just as important, dermatologist Natasha Cook told Daily Mail Australia this week. A simple "wash and go" isn't going to cut it.

"Cleansing in the morning is good to prepare for your application of your daily serums and skincare," Cook said.

It will act as an effective base and prepare your skin for that day's makeup application, she added. And taking care of your face, morning and night, is the key to a clear complexion, Cook said.

Dermatologists recommend a gentle cleanser.


Choosing the right cleanser is key


"The single biggest mistake I see people making is choosing the wrong cleanser," Cook said.

The Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA) recommends choosing products that are unscented or fragrance-free, do not contain common allergens, are non-comedogenic, and have a low potential for irritation. Brands such as Marcelle, Avene, and Garnier have products that have earned the CDA seal of approval.

It's also important to keep in mind your skin type when you're removing your makeup, dermatologist Julia Carroll previously told HuffPost Canada. Products with alcohol should be avoided by anyone with sensitive skin, Carroll said, and oil-based makeup removers should be avoided by those who break out easily.


What about double-cleansing?


Double-cleansing, or washing your face twice in one sitting, isn't always a bad idea, especially if you're wearing a lot of makeup or sunscreen, Cook told The Independent.

Double-cleansing can tackle different types of impurities.

Just be wary of over-cleansing, since that can irritate the skin and make acne worse, Cook said. She recommended using micellar water to pre-cleanse, and then use a gentle formula cleanser.

Micellar water is made up of tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules suspended in soft water.

"The idea is that micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin," dermatologist Hadley King previously told HuffPost. "Therefore, micellar water can be used as a facial wash, makeup remover and moisturizer all in one."

Issa Rae Is Proud To Represent Black Women For CoverGirl
Posted on Wednesday October 25, 2017

Issa Rae attends Black Girls Rock! 2017 at New Jersey Performing Arts Center on August 5, 2017.

Being a CoverGirl ambassador means a lot to Issa Rae.

When the 32-year-old actress revealed she would be the new face of the brand in September, she noted how, as "an awkward black girl in high school," she would see the beauty giant's ads in magazines and sing their slogan in her head.

But now that the shock of her new title has worn off (sort of), Rae revealed her pride in being able to represent women who look like her.

"[When it happened] I called my mom, I told my friends, and they were all super excited," she told Cosmopolitan in a recent interview. "To see the response that people had, I felt even more validated and more touched. It showed the support out there and that the news struck a chord and that people feel represented in a way that they hadn't before."

People feel represented in a way that they hadn't before.

A quick look at Twitter proves that people are loving the brand's decision to make the "Insecure" star one of their spokesmodels, not only because she's an inspiring role model, but because she represents women of colour too.

CoverGirl has made noticeable efforts to be more diverse and inclusive as of late by not only adding more women of colour to their list of ambassadors, such as Rae and Ayesha Curry, but by also including older spokesmodels, such 69-year-old Canadian beauty Maye Musk.

As a result, even Rae has applauded the brand for being more inclusive.

"Becoming a CoverGirl means a lot because the brand recognizes just how important it is for people to embrace their individuality and express themselves in unique and diverse ways," the 32-year-old said in September. "This has been a major part of my personal journey, and a message that I want to share with others."

The World's First Lesbian Bridal Magazine Is Finally Here
Posted on Tuesday October 24, 2017

It is 2017, after all.

As an Australian couple launches the world's first lesbian bridal magazine a glossy, photo-filled celebration of love called Dancing with Her the internet is saying "finally."

The magazine, which officially launched Tuesday with its first print edition, comes just as Australians are in the midst of voting on whether same-sex marriage should be legalized.

Nearly 12 million Australians, or three quarters of eligible voters, have mailed in their ballots so far, Reuters reports. The government has said it would put a proposal before parliament if a majority vote "yes." That would make Australia the 25th nation to legalize same-sex marriage, according to Reuters.

Dancing With Her is a creative, inclusive and real wedding publication for women who have been left underrepresented for too long.Tara Baker and Arlia Hassell

Same-sex marriage has been legal in Canada since 2005. Since then, the number of same-sex couples in Canada has increased by 60 per cent, according to Statistics Canada. About one per cent of all couples in Canada are same-sex couples.

Founders Tara Baker and Arlia Hassell who celebrated their engagement in 2016 created the magazine to fill the gap they discovered while trying to plan their own nuptials in a hetero-normative wedding industry, they write on the Dancing With Her website.

The couple is "passionate about diversity within wedding media, and as two women in love, want to see that represented in wedding material," they said.

"Dancing With Her is a creative, inclusive and real wedding publication (print magazine and online blog) for women who have been left underrepresented for too long."

Dancing With Her is a celebration of women in love, according to the magazine's tagline.

It boasts over 100 pages of real wedding stories, editorials, a wedding-planning journal, and a directory of vendors across Australia and the United States.

And, of course, there are the beautiful photos splashed across the magazine's Instagram page ahead of the launch.

Kelly Clarkson Says Body Image Pressures Caused Her To Have Suicidal Thoughts [UPDATED]
Posted on Tuesday October 24, 2017

UPDATE: Kelly Clarkson responded to reports that she contemplated suicide while battling body image pressures to be "really skinny." On Tuesday, the singer clarified her remarks on Twitter:

Earlier on HuffPost:

No celebrity is exempt from body image pressures, including Kelly Clarkson.

In a new interview with Attitude, the 35-year-old singer got real about the self-image struggles she faced after being catapulted into stardom following her 2002 win on "American Idol."

"When I was really skinny, I wanted to kill myself," she told the British magazine. "I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life. But no one cared, because aesthetically you make sense."

Clarkson revealed that she was pressured by executives to keep her body image on par with pop stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera during her first years of fame.

"It was a very dark time for me. I thought the only way out was quitting," she said. "I like wrecked my knees and my feet because all I would do is put in headphones and run. I was at the gym all the time."

Kelly Clarkson sings after winning 'American Idol' on Sept. 4, 2002.

By the time Clarkson released her third studio album, My December, in 2007, she had had enough. Not only did she channel her struggles into her music, but she decided to get rid of the negative people in her life.

"There's a song on My December called 'Sober.' There's this line 'picked the weeds but kept the flowers' and I just live my life by that because you are who you surround yourself with," she explained to the mag.

I was around some really negative people, and I got out of it because I had a lot of great people there too.

"I was around some really negative people, and I got out of it because I had a lot of great people there too," she continued. "It was a case of turning around, facing them and walking toward the light."

Clarkson has been open about her body image issues in the past, and in 2007, she revealed to CosmoGIRL! that she battled bulimia for six months in Grade 7.

Kelly Clarkson arrives at Variety's Power Of Women: Los Angeles on October 13, 2017.

In the 15 years since she first won "American Idol," the mom-of-two has come a long way and found self-acceptance with her body.

Last week, while giving a private performance in New York to debut her new song, "Whole Lotta Woman," Clarkson told the audience, "Too skinny, too fat, too blonde — so much blah. This is who I am and I'm happy. Happy looks different on everyone."

She later elaborated her thoughts on body image to the Daily Mail, saying, "The media has always been obsessed with [my size]. And I have felt conflicted over the years. Do you address it? Do you talk about it? Because then you just add to the noise.

"But people like me to talk about it, so I don't really mind carrying that flag. I love that people come up to me and say: 'Because you are comfortable in your skin, you have made me more comfortable in mine.' That's the best compliment ever."

16 Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands You Can Find In Or That Ship To Canada
Posted on Tuesday October 24, 2017

Those of us who are socially conscious animal and beauty lovers know how hard it can be to find ethical, cruelty-free beauty products.

Not only do many of the big beauty brands out there (including Estée Lauder, Avon, Clinique, Maybelline, and L'Oreal) still test on animals, pay for animal testing in China, or commission/contract animal testing, but there are laws in Canada that allow beauty companies to test on animals.

But the good news is that on Oct. 4, the Senate Standing Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology unanimously voted in favour of S-214, the Cruelty Free Cosmetics Act. This bill would prohibit not only cosmetic animal testing in Canada, but also the sale of cosmetic products or ingredients that have been newly testing elsewhere in the world, reports the Animal Alliance of Canada.

The proposed legislation will move to debate and a final vote in the Canadian Senate, and if the bill passes, it will move to the House of Commons.

Here in Canada, [animal testing] remains perfectly legal for cosmetic chemicals to be dripped into rabbits' eyes and spread on their delicate skin, all for the sake of a new lipstick and skin cream.

"Cosmetic testing on animals is an outdated, needless practice with no place in a modern and progressive society," Troy Seidle, Humane Society International's (HSI) senior director of research and toxicology said in a statement. "Yet here in Canada, it remains perfectly legal for cosmetic chemicals to be dripped into rabbits' eyes and spread on their delicate skin, all for the sake of a new lipstick and skin cream."

The alternatives to these methods, notes the New England Anti-Vivisection Society (NEAVS), include using donated human cells and tissues in vitro, computer simulations and genetic testing.

According to a poll conducted by Animal Alliance and HSI, 81 per cent of Canadians support a national ban on cosmetic animal testing.

Anita Roddick of the Body Shop and comedian Alexei Sayle challenge the Cosmetic, Toiletry & Perfumery Association to back an EU ban for cosmetics testing on animals in London.

So how can you tell whether a beauty product is cruelty-free? For starters, check out the lists of brands on PETA, Cruelty-Free Kitty, Logical Harmony and Leaping Bunny.

PETA also has a searchable database, so if you're unsure whether the product you're interested in is cruelty-free, you can just type in the name of the brand and PETA will do the work for you. Meanwhile, Cruelty-Free Kitty, Logical Harmony, and PETA also have lists of companies that do test on animals.

DIY Halloween Costumes That Are Creepy AF
Posted on Monday October 23, 2017

There are some who enjoy playing dress up and going all out for Halloween, and we are among those Halloween-loving people. The best time to be the scariest version of yourself is October 31st and you don't need a pro to help you scare the bejesus out of someone.

Here are 15 creepy AF looks to inspire your inner demon.

1. Billy the Puppet from "Saw"

This is a relatively easy tutorial. To pull off Billy the Puppet from the "Saw" and "Jigsaw" movies, simply paint your face white and use black makeup around the eyes. Use red paint to make circles on the apples of the cheeks. Finish the look with red lipstick, followed by a faint black line from the corner of the lips to the chin. Voila!

2. Regan from "The Exorcist"

To be the possessed girl from "The Exorcist," all you'll need is a little face paint to mark scratches over your face. Use a sponge with green paint for that gross stuff around the lips, get yourself a flowered nightgown, and you're good to go.

3. "Black Swan"

This is another look that looks both amazing and creepy. Use white face paint and black liner for the eyes. You can fill in the eye makeup with white eyeshadow and use a shade of burgundy on the lips.

4. Samara Morgan from "The Ring"

Samara from "The Ring" is creepy AF. You'll just need a brunette wig and drawn-on cuts and bruises over your face. Put on some contacts and stain those teeth for a wicked grin.

5. Uncle Fester from "The Addams Family"

A post shared by Siena Wanlass (@swanhorns) on

Uncle Fester is another easy one to master. Just draw black circles around the eyes, find a high-necked black shirt and give a wide-eyed look all night long.

6. A devil

A post shared by Naomi (@namglam) on

For some red devil glam, paint the face red and use shimmery black shadow for the eyes. For an extra sinful look, pair your lips with red shimmery lipstick.

7. The nun from "The Conjuring"

What you'll need for this look is white face paint and use black face paint around the eyes. Then start drawing faint lines as wrinkles. Use some contour to define the cheekbones and the smile lines. And finally, add black lipstick and then smudge it around the lips for a creepy look.

8. "The Corpse Bride"

For this "Corpse Bride" look, paint your face, neck and shoulders with blue colour, even the brows. Then use black paint to create a high brow point. Use fake lashes and contour the nose and cheekbones. Apply pink lipstick and get a blue wig to complete the look.

9. Pennywise from "It"

To scare the living daylights out of anyone, go for the iconic clown. Simply paint your face white and use red lipstick or paint to enhance the lips. Extend the lip lines upwards from the corners of the mouth to the eyes. Oh, and don't forget the red nose. Then give your best creepy smile all night long while whispering, "You'll float, too."

10. Edward Scissorhands

This one requires a lot of contouring for that Johnny Depp look. You can start by using black paint for cuts over the face. Get a wig for that messy hair and use a touch of burgundy on the lips.

11. Chucky

A post shared by Jess Mcdonough (@jesskatmcd) on

To be the iconic Chucky from "Child's Play," just put a few stitches on your face and you're a serial killer on the loose. You'll only need red, black and white paint to create this look.

12.Princess Ahmanet from "The Mummy"

For Princess Ahmanet, you'll need black paint to draw ancient symbols across your face. Use black eyeshadow around the eyes and over the lips. To be extra, you can paint double irises over your lids.

13. The Joker

The Joker is a classic and you'll be the most wanted psycho at the party. Buy yourself some white face paint, red for the lips and slight black shadow under the eyes. Dye your hair green (or grab a green wig) for that extra creepy look.

14. "Game of Thrones"

A post shared by Anahy (@glassjawbabe) on

This "Game of Thrones" look might take some more time, but it's well worth it. If you have fishnet tights, cut out a piece to use as a stencil for the snakeskin print over the forehead. Use black shadow for smoky eyes and for lining the lips. You'll also need black shadow for contouring the cheekbones.

15. Sugar skull makeup

This one's easy — you'll just need a lot of face paint colours. Start by painting the base white and add blue circles around the eyes. Then use a paintbrush to draw designs over the face.
