The LA insider has left LA.

Don’t panic! It’s only for a short time. There’s been so much going on, but I’ll only tell you about the cool things or Mimi will kill me.

Well, first I’ve been whisked away to Norway to do a magazine spread. I can’t say any more yet, but the acronym for the magazine is NGAM.

I literally only had time to throw a few things in my case and grab my Verizon Storm www.estore.vzwshop.com/storm/ (it has global sat nav). I was a bit bummed to leave so quick though as I missed the Bel Air launch party for talenthouse.com created by the wonderful Lisa l’Anson (sorry I couldn’t make it Lisa). For those of you who know good music, and remember when Radio 1 was really cool you know who Lisa is. She’s now created the world’s first global online creative community space and it’s been endorsed by Bono – enough said I think.

Wen Haircare

Wen Haircare

Before I left LA though, there was all this talk on the street about Wen www.wenhaircare.com  I don’t have much hair so I’ve had to take my friends words on this…Though thousands are ditching their shampoo for it. Created by Hollywood’s Chaz Dean hairdresser to the stars, Wen boasts it can be used on ALL hair types, ethnic, European, horse (wink wink).  What makes this product different is it cleans the hair with astringent and antibacterial properties and doesn’t lather so I’m told. Apparently Wen has to be massaged in which stimulates blood circulation to the head and creates healthy hair growth and stops hair loss (again so I’m told). It’s selling all over QVC in the States, and in the UK at  www.wenhaircare.co.uk

Now from hair to Skin, well actually the film ‘Skin’ www.skinthemovie.net . Based on a true story, it’s a MUST see film – and I don’t usually say that. I was fortunate to attend the LA premier at the Pan African Film Festival www.paff.org, and I was surprised at how captivating the film is. It’s an emotional roller coaster from start to finish. Starring the beautiful Sophie Okonedo who gives a stellar performance, and directed by break through director Anthony Fabian, ‘Skin’ tells the story of Sandra Laing, a black baby girl born to white parents in 1950′s apartheid South Africa. That alone tells you you’re in for a masterpiece. Not distributed in the U.S. yet (hmmm Obama?) It’s already released in the UK so for all you jet setters flying in to the UK  it’s my must see film of 2009 and worth every penny.
