The Spell-ometer July 2020

We look at what's hot and what's not in the world of Spell, from Bey's black business directory to missing out on hols with the squad.

Beyoncé's Black Parade

HOT: Black Parade

Proceeds from Beyoncé’s surprise single go to the BeyGOOD Black Business Impact Fund.

Face masks
Cotton face mask, £15

HOT: Safe & stylish

Safety and style come first with these colourful masks by London-based Black-owned business Joanna Vanderpuije.


HOT: Silver screen

Cinemas are now open, so go and watch stylish time-bending thriller Tenet, starring John David Washington.

Protest safely

NOT: Health first

Protesting without safety precautions is a big no-no. Our checklist includes masks, sanitiser, sunscreen and water.

Pull up or shut up

NOT: Pull up for change

Sharon Chuter’s initiative, @pullupforchange, highlights racial inequality in multinational corporations - and we’re disappointed with the findings.


NOT: Wander-lust woes

Oh, how we miss those summer holidays with the squad!

❤ Picked for you ❤
