Admittedly you won't catch me playing with my (amazing) Crystal Barbie any more, but I'm definitely still partial to a Barbie tee or accessory. They make me smile and are a reminder not to take life so seriously. Plus, Barbie is always getting a super cool makeover courtesy of some chic brand or other, so there's that too.
I'm breaking my own rule this week, and starting with a story that very much made the front pages - the front page of Time magazine to be precise. Earlier this week, Beyoncé was crowned queen of the US title's 100 Most Influential People In The World list, or the Time 100 as it's more generally billed, and consequently pictured looking her usual stunning self on the front of the magazine. So far, so good. The socialsphere, however, didn't take long to react and when it did, the reaction wasn't pretty.
