Whether you love it or loathe it, there’s no escaping the fact that Valentine’s Day is approaching and everything is getting a romantic makeover. From Lush Valentine’s Day bath bombs (which should never be used as sex toys, FYI) to Ben and Jerry’s new Valentine’s Day flavour, there are things out there that we can all enjoy – singletons and loved-up couples alike.

And as the most ro/bromantic day of the year edges ever closer, we’ve got another nugget of happiness to share with you – Krispy Kreme doughnuts are getting a huge Valentine’s Day makeover on February 14th.

For one day only, Krispy Kreme is turning its entire doughnut range into hearts and hugs. Everything will be ring or heart shaped, so if you’re stuck for ideas then a dozen tray of these will go down a treat.

And that’s not all. There will also be three brand new flavours for you to try with your pals or partner.

First up there’s the Nutty Chocolate Heart, filled with Nutella, dipped in a rich chocolate icing and decorated with hazelnut pieces.

Plenty of time to try them all.

What better way to spend a romantic night in with your SO or a chilled-out Galentine’s than downing doughnuts.

Sources: Kamala Harris Will Launch A Presidential Campaign Around MLK Jr. Day

Sen. Kamala Harris may officially announce her bid for the White House sometime during MLK weekend, according to inside sources who spoke to KCBS Radio in her home state of California.

Speculation that the Democratic senator will make a run for president next year escalated when she launched a book tour promoting her new memoir, The Truths We Hold: An American Journey, which published Tuesday. When questioned about the 2020 race on her tour, Harris has repeatedly said that she is not ready to announce her decision yet. However, several sources with knowledge of her plans say she and her family are indeed ready for a run.

Sources also say that the 54-year-old freshman senator is still debating on how and where to kick off a presidential campaign. KCBS reports that “the tentative plan is for Harris to enter the race for the Democratic presidential nomination with a campaign rally, most likely in Oakland, where she was born and began her legal career.” However, a spokesperson for Harris told The Hill, that no announcement is imminent and Harris will not be in Oakland during the holiday weekend.

Nonetheless, Harris told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Wednesday that she will make a final decision about 2020 soon and that she truly believes the nation is ready for a woman of color to be president.

“We have to give the American people more credit, and we have to understand that the American public and the people of our country are smart people who will make decisions about who will be their leader based on who they believe is capable, who they believe has an honest desire to lead, to represent, to see them, to be a voice for them even if they have no power,” she said.

Harris made history in 2017 when she became the second African American woman to be sworn into Congress as a U.S. Senator. Altogether, a total of just 10 African Americans have ever served in the U.S. Senate, including former President Barack Obama and Sen. Cory Booker.

If Harris jumps into the 2020 race, she would likely join Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who recently announced an exploratory committee for a presidential bid. Other potential high-profile Democratic candidates include Sen. Booker, Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas).

Izzue to Launch Capsule With CSM and to Show During London Fashion Week

FIRST TIME AROUND: Hong Kong fashion brand Izzue is throwing a 20th birthday bash in the form of a runway show during London Fashion Week in February. This will be the first time that Izzue’s men’s and women’s pieces will be showcased on a London runway.
“London has always been a source of inspiration for Izzue. It has always embodied British punk, so to show outside of Asia needed to be a natural next step and it needed to make sense, so it had to be London,” said Deborah Cheng, chief commercial officer at I.T group.
Izzue, which is under the multibrand I.T Group, has formed ties with London since 2013 when they launched in the U.K. in Selfridges. Since then, the brand has gone from being a pop-up to having a dedicated space in the department store’s Contemporary Studio on the third floor.
“Our pop-up was so successful back in 2013 that we were offered a permanent space on the ground floor right after, and to this day we are still exceeding their expectations. We’ve grown with Selfridges and now we are located in the Contemporary Studio,” said Cheng.
On top of its runway show debut, the brand is also launching a capsule collection with

Comcast to Launch Two New Black TV Networks in January

Comcast Corp. is adding two new African American majority-owned independent networks to be broadly distributed on Comcast Cable systems beginning in January 2019. The selected networks, AFRO and CLEO TV, will showcase programming that highlights and features black communities around the diaspora. The announcement, however, came just days before a federal appeals court cleared the way for Bryon Allen’s Entertainment Studios Networks to pursue a $ 20 billion lawsuit against the cable operator on the grounds of racial discrimination.

More Representation In Media

TV One’s Cleo TV focuses on lifestyle and entertainment content targeting young women of color. Afro, which is owned by the Florida-based company Afrotainment, features movies, TV series, and other programming representing cultures in Africa and across the globe. In addition to being broadly distributed on Comcast Xfinity, the channels will be offered on Comcast’s basic tier digital platform in select markets, making them available to millions of subscribers online. This will provide the networks with a major boost and help fill the void in the lack of quality and diverse black-oriented media content.

“The offerings from both AFRO and CLEO TV serve as an excellent complement to the growing catalog of programming choices we offer about global black communities,” said Keesha Boyd, executive director, Multicultural Products at Comcast Cable, in a statement. “We remain committed to delivering a wide array of programming by partnering with independent networks, such as the two we’re announcing today, to better serve our increasingly diverse customer base.”

The announcement is part of a bigger deal that Comcast inked with the FCC and DOJ back in 2011 when it acquired NBCUniversal. In order to receive federal approval for the merger, Comcast agreed to launch eight minority-owned and/or –operated networks. This included ASPiRE in 2012 and REVOLT in 2013 along with four Hispanic-focused channels.

“We are excited to bring AFRO’s live content and growing on-demand catalog of more than 300 hours of original programming to millions of Xfinity customers. Comcast’s selection of AFRO, which is a recognition of the rich diversity in black content and culture, solidifies our position as a leader in polycultural black home entertainment in North America,” said Yves Bollanga, founder and CEO of Afrotainment, in the statement.

“We’re at a pivotal moment in history where women are making a huge impact in our society and culture, especially women of color,” said Michelle Rice, TV One’s general manager. “CLEO TV will offer a diverse mix of lifestyle and entertainment content through the unique lens of millennial and young Gen-X women of color, an audience segment that is currently underserved.”

Scrutiny

On Monday, a federal appellate court ruled that Entertainment Studios can pursue a lawsuit against Comcast for alleged violations of the Civil Rights Act, according to Variety. The company has also been granted legal clearance for a similar suit against Charter Communications for $ 10 billion. Allen, a media titan who graced the May/June 2018 cover of BLACK ENTERPRISE, claims that both Comcast and Charter refuse to carry his networks because of his race. The comedian-turned-mogul settled a similar suit back in 2015 with AT&T’s Direct TV, which now carries seven channels produced by his company.

HGTV Will Launch a New Show…on Snapchat! How to Watch You Wish You Lived Here

HGTV has a reputation for being the channel everyone always leaves on. Now, it will also be the one fans can watch wherever they go.

You Wish You Lived Here is HGTV’s first-ever “Snap Original,” a show that airs exclusively on Snapchat. It premieres Sunday, October 21 at 6 a.m. ET and will be available to watch on the app for 48 hours.

The series will be hosted by DIYer Dylan Silver, who, along with a team of HGTV pros, will tackle a total room makeover in each episode inspired by the guests’ celeb style inspiration. But the designs don’t come with an A-lister’s budget: Every space will come together for $ 1,000 or less.

Behind the Scenes: What it Really Takes to Launch a Film Career

Thanks to digital technology and social media, it’s easier than ever to start your filmmaking career. But starting a film career is one thing, growing and maintaining it is another. We asked award-winning filmmaker Adisa Septuri for some actionable tips and advice for creating your own path in the film industry. Here’s Septuri’s advice:

4 Ways to Launch a Film Career

 Invest in Yourself and Fail Forward

There’s a tendency to think that because we see lots of people picking up a camera and making films that it’s easy. We live in an instant gratification, YouTube video generation. If you want to excel at a high level, really study the craft, take classes, and watch YouTube videos, which are great but also read books and ask a zillion questions of people already doing it. You don’t necessarily need to go to film school, especially with the exorbitant tuition prices these days. Start making small films and then challenge yourself incrementally. It’s important to take chances and make mistakes in the beginning. My biggest lessons came from making mistakes. The bigger the mistake, the bigger the lesson. By doing this you’ll gain confidence.

Also, don’t rush yourself or feel as if you’re in some kind of race with time or other filmmakers. It will happen to you at the right time. Your main job is to do the work and invest in yourself. If you do that, you will ultimately create an opportunity or you’ll be presented with one.

Connect With Mentors

Find a mentor, it will save you a lot of time and wasted energy. I never really pursued one until much later and I could have really benefited by having one.

Hustle Smart

It took me a long time to get into writing, but besides learning the craft of directing, learning how to write screenplay puts you in a greater position to succeed. It allows you to generate your own material. It will also help you become an even better director. It takes a lot of patience, persistence, and determination to succeed in this business. Find you a hustle where you can pay the bills while you pursue your dream. For me, it was sound mixing. I actually became a union sound mixer. It kept me close to the film set while I pursued my passion of directing. I had to dedicate 10,000 hours to be good at it and it wasn’t always easy and sometimes I felt I was getting nowhere but I kept writing and studying in the meantime and sound mixing kept food on my table and gave me the fortitude to keep going.

Slow Progress is Still Progress

There’s also a tendency to fantasize about coming out the gate and being successful like Ryan Coogler or your first film going to Sundance and getting a big studio deal. I hate to be the one to burst your bubble, but that’s not realistic thinking. It only really happens to a very small few. The other 99% of us—myself included—take it day by day and film by film. Hard work is its own reward and it will eventually pay off.

Even if it takes you 15 years after graduating NYU film school like me to make your first feature film. Not everyone is cut out for it, but if you really want it—don’t just do it for the fame, money, or accolades. Those things are nice but I would suggest doing it because you have something to say. Do it because you want to make a difference and because you feel the call to be great and for a purpose. For me, it was a desire to see black images reflected on the screen and to tell the multitude of stories that exist in our community that never get told.
