LEOPARD print is huge right now - but if you aren't brave enough to go all-out animal magic, you can just flash a bit on your feet. We've been lusting after these adorable Christian Louboutin heels for what feels like an age - but they cost an absolute fortune. Unfortunately our pockets aren't deep enough to spend in excess of £600 on a pair of shoes - no matter how gorgeous they are. These beauties have Louboutin's famous red sole and we would feel like Carrie Bradshaw prancing around in them. Our hearts were racing when we spotted them on Net-a-Porter. But, alas, they are just too expensive - until we spotted this amazing High Street dupe which you can get from Fabulous favourite Dune.

Black History Month Wales begins this October... And it has given us the perfect excuse to celebrate the fact that Wales is full of brilliant, black Welsh people. To honour this annual event-packed month and this year's 70th anniversary of the Windrush arrivals, we are featuring 100 brilliant Afro Caribbean and African Welsh people who have helped shaped our nation. Each has been chosen by the Black History Wales-wide network of members as supported by the Black History Committee to mark its Black History Month theme - "Icons of Black Wales". Each has been chosen for their extraordinary commitment and contributions to public life, science, health, education, the arts, sport, business and equal rights.

And we hope … [Read more...] about Brilliant, Black and Welsh: A celebration of 100 inspiring people
A Brit has described the harrowing moment a family reunion barbecue turned into a bloodbath when five armed men attacked his South African home and shot his sister-in-law through the heart. Retired David Thomas, 67, wife Brenda, 61, and close friend Shaun Vorster, 51, were tackled to the ground and tied up as Brenda's sister Heila Kilian, 63, died before them from a single shot. Despite the horrific scene, devout Christian Brenda told their attackers that God still loved them - quoting scripture with a knife to her throat. The group was enjoying a barbecue at 10pm in the back garden of their Questus Lighthouse home near Stilbaai, in the Western Cape when suddenly the men in masks and boiler suits pounced. Father-of-two David was dragged into the darkness, had his head smashed repeatedly against a brick wall, had a gun put to his head and was told by his attackers they “hate whites”.

On 7 March 1965, African Americans were beaten bloody on a civil rights march led by Martin Luther King Jr. They were demanding their constitutional right to vote. Two years before that now iconic day, in the west of England, nineteen-year-old Jamaican Guy Bailey made his way to a job interview with Bristol Omnibus Company, the city’s bus service. Paul Stephenson, a local youth worker, had arranged the interview for Guy, first ensuring that there were jobs available, and that Guy had the qualifications to do the work. But when Guy turned up to his interview, he found that it had been cancelled. Recounting his interview to the BBC fifty years later, Guy recalled the exact moment he was rejected by the receptionist. “She said to the manager ‘your two o’clock appointment is here. But he’s black.’ And the manager said, ‘Tell him we have no vacancies here, all vacancies are filled.’” That Guy was turned down was not a surprise to … [Read more...] about On Martin Luther King Day remember that the UK had a black civil rights movement too
