Latina actress Genesis Rodriguez is the newest spokesperson for  the campaign called “It’s That Worth It To Me.” The campaign is a collaboration between L’Oréal and Melanoma Research Alliance. It is essentially a Public Health Campaign and Social Media Call-to-Action that drives Melanoma Awareness, raises funding for research and encourages sun protection and sunless tanning.

This past Thursday an amazing panel of women spoke at the Thompson Hotel in South Beach to discuss the importance of protecting your skin and to raise awareness about Melanoma. The panel consisted of Miami-based doctor Flor Mayoral, M.D, of Mayoral Dermatology, Danielle Macaluso, AVP of Communications for L’Oreal Paris USA, as well Genesis.  According to the campaign, melanoma is the most common cancer in women under 40.

“Currently melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer and one of the most common cancers in women under 40 years old in the United States. The first line of defense in helping to reduce the risk of developing melanoma is by wearing broad spectrum UVA and UVB SPF protection. L’Oréal Paris, a leading global beauty brand, and Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA), the leading private funder of melanoma research, announced today the launch of It’s THAT Worth It To Me. This social media campaign encourages women to donate 15 social media seconds by sharing why SPF protection or using sunless tanner is worth it to protect their skin, their beauty and their life. For every social share, L’Oréal Paris will donate $1 to MRA to fund the L’Oréal Paris – MRA Team Science Award Research Grant, up to $250,000 in 2015.”

How To Participate in It’s THAT Worth It to Me by Donating 15 Social Media Seconds

Beginning on May 4th, “Melanoma Monday,” and through Labor Day on September 7th, people can participate in the campaign by following three steps:

  1. Create a 15 second video or photo sharing with their social community why SPF protection or using sunless tanner is worth it. 
  2. Share the video or photo via Insta-video/Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter with hashtag #ItsTHATWorthIt   
  3. Get your social media community involved to further spread the word by tagging three friends in your post.

Kyemah McEntyre, a senior at Cecily Tyson School of Performing Arts, in East Orange, New Jersey has been making waves with her handmade prom dress. In a sea of Met Gala inspired prom dresses, McEntyre broke the internet with her sense of originality and boldness. One of her Twitter captions that has been making headlines eloquently read:

“This is for always being labeled as, “ugly” or “angry”. Thank God, stereotypes are just opinions. – Kyemah McEntyre✊”
McEntyre is going to be attending Parsons School of Design in the fall. We have no problem admitting that we can’t wait to see what she shows us next. She shared on her Instagram that she draws inspiration from all cultures.
“I’m Kyemah McEntyre, I am 18 years old and I am undoubtedly of African Descent. As an artist I have a completely different point of view compared to most individuals. I am extremely analytical and observant. Throughout the world, we have people who do not notice each others essence and humanity. We Stunt our collective spiritual growth by allowing assumptions and stereotypes to cloud our mind and thus our physical reality. We let these negative ideas get the best of us, and in turn a world of isolation is manifested by our lack of sensitivity and desire to sympathize with each other. This results in a world in which people live within the confines of their own space, isolated from each other and separated from the rest of the world.Sometimes we get trapped in our own prejudice ways. We don’t notice how the idea of a particular type of person changes the way we live our lives. The most creative people are the ones who step out of their comfort zone and take advantage of the world around them. My abilities as an artist allows me to experience the benefits that versatility fosters. Being exposed to all kinds of people and cultures is the muse for my artwork. I am an aspiring artist who is very passionate about the connection between art and the world. I believe that in order for society to gain a wider horizon, we have to be willing to acknowledge other people from differences, beliefs, morals, and values. I would like to take this moment to say that you have to understand who you are because if you leave that space open, you leave your identity in the hands of society. Don’t let anyone define you. Beautiful things happen when you take pride in yourself. #blackgirlsrock #kyebreaktheinternet”


This one-of-a-kind look is most certainly #worthyapproved.

Highlights from Ciara’s Vegas Performance


Friday night, international recording artist Ciara gave a flawless full-length concert in the middle of Drai’s Nightclub at The Cromwell while boyfriend and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson danced the night away to her greatest hits, from her original worldwide smash “Goodies” to her latest acclaimed chart-topper “I Bet.”

We selected some of our favorite shots from the weekend performance.

The sea of fans at the 65,000 square foot rooftop nightclub were treated to songs from each of Ciara’s albums including “1, 2 Step,” “Like A Boy,” “Body Party,” “Oh,” and many others. Three highlights included an earnest performance of “I Bet,” a heart-pounding remix of “Goodies,” and her own special take on Missy Elliot’s “Lose Control,” which Ciara was originally featured on. Rarely taking a moment to slow down, Ciara’s masterful and iconic dance moves were in full effect for the entire duration of her show.
