THIS SUNDAY: KiKi Layne, fashion's latest muse and the star of Oscar-tipped If Beale Street Could Talk. PLUS, a look at the shifting power dynamics in porn as an increasing number of women turn to watching the gay male genre. As well as: how to wear checks and winter denim, the super flattering make-up colour you need to try, and a look at @drewbarrymore's fantastic new make-up range.
There are two types of people: those who’d raise their hands to read aloud in school, and those who stayed still, avoided eye contact and prayed the ground would swallow them up instead. The Enchanted Hour by Meghan Cox Gurdon suggests we all have something to learn from the former. Taking the time to read aloud is likened to “applying a soothing balm to the soul” in a world where our attention is constantly being pulled in a thousand directions. Full of tips and recommendations, this book is a fascinating insight into the dazzling cognitive and social-emotional benefits that reading aloud can bring. If you still need convincing, you can see what @pandorasykes made of it at the #linkinbio. (#STYLEreads by @emilyashpowell)
