Cocoa Sounds: Misha B – Do You Think of Me

I’m loving Misha B’s new single ‘Do You Think of Me’. The lyrics are really poignant and seem to hint to Misha’s past as an adopted child, which is probably why vocally her delivery sounds really heartfelt. The track entered the top ten of the ITunes chart during the first week of its release with minimal radio play and virtually no appearances on prime-time television *side eyes Simon Cowell*. Not that I’ve been watching it this year, but let’s hope she gets a slot on XFactor.

You Lil’ Beauty: Jourdan Dunn’s Burberry Beauty Campaign

I read an interesting article recently penned by one of my favourite hair and beauty bloggers, Naturalbelle, who can be found over at Belle made a pretty spot on observation when she pointed out the fact that although there are a few more brown beauties fronting advertising campaigns for major make-up brands, the actual shades suited to black women darker than Halle Berry’s complexion are few and far between. West London’s Jourdan Dunn is one of the most successful models from the new generation and one of my faves (anyone who follows her on Twitter can attest that she’s just a regular, down to earth Landan girl). Jourdan is currently the face of Burberry and recently released a video to accompany the brand’s Spring/Summer 12 look. I’m loving the balmy/ barely there/look: no make-up, neutral and nude shades which is touted as one of the hottest make-up trends for this upcoming season. I’ve never been a huge fan of brands that try to diversify into a new and already strongly established territories, but I’m willing to make an exception here and give Burberry a chance because this looks hawt.
