This here is a prime example of folks advocating for behaviors and lifestyles for others that they would never do themselves. It’s classic. Monsato lobbyist, [name] went on a French news show and said that Roundup, the cancer-causing weed-killer created by the company that wants to keep us from using our own, non-GMO seeds, saidRead More…
House Republicans think rape is negotiable. I think it’s safe to say all is lost…
We all have unique fashion styles, preferences, and shopping habits. This post is for women who want easy and inexpensive ways to makeover their clothing items or outfits so that they are more feminine or interesting. Some will buy a plain t-shirt and wear it as is.

I was looking around in an old recipe database this morning when I cane across this!
Blasian love in Africa!!
I was not prepared for the response to the first part of this post. I was not prepared to think of myself according to my skin shade rather than as simply a human being. I was not prepared for guilt for having written the article despite not being dark-skinned myself. But most of all, I was not prepared for the push back from non-dark skinned women.
I like my beer just as much as the next woman. I live in Philly after all, which a a major beer town. Hubby and I are home brewers and when traveling he and I always try what is local. Sometimes this works, some times not so much. Sorry Baltimore we tried your Natty Boh recently at a place in Fels Point. Nah Uh.
Parents, fathers of daughters in particular, YOU should be front and center in telling each of your daughters how beautiful, smart, precious, important she is to YOU! She should be able to sit on your lap safely, and hear those things that matter so much, first from YOU.
Honey, if a man you’re dating refuses to tell you that you are beautiful TO HIM, dump him, do not look back.
Sheryl Sandberg’s book “Lean In” will be released on March 11th and I’ve already pre-ordered a copy. Ms. Sandberg has also created a non-profit organization to help women ‘lean into’ their careers and goals.
Went to the exclusive, pro-only L.A. Makeup Show this passed weekend, and thanks to some of the best products on the market, I know wake up and look like this is the morning.
Have you ever been in the company of a person that made you feel instantly at ease? The way you interact with them is almost like you are familiar with each other, even if you’ve never met, yet you leave the interaction with a feeling of genuine happiness and an upbeat attitude. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but its a pleasantness that certain people give off about themselves.
The ladylike girlie, feminine trend continues this year. I don’t know about you, but I am sucker for 20’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s inspired fashion. Those women knew how to dress and kick ass while doing. I would watch Mad Men and Pan Am just for the fashion alone.
Maybe Black folks won’t fear the doctor’s office so much anymore…
I was chatting it up with one my gorgeous guy friend when he revealed an interesting tidbit about himself: he had lived with his parents until he was 29 years, only for the last 2 years had he been in his own apartment.
Got this note, and it really struck a nerve with me…
By popular demand (okay, two people), here’s a follow-up How to Pack It post for students and others out there, who asked for a scaled-down “lite” version that will allow you to get your workout in, on the run.
You asked, I delivered. OT away!
It’s rare that I come upon a post that is just so delicious and well-suited for this blog that my fingers literally itch to cut and paste. This is one of those times. Thanks to BB&W Crew members, Kia and Brenda55, you are about to feast your eyes on the ultimate touché–a list of reasons why black women should date white men.
My own personal recipe for Crusty Italian Bread. You may or may not add sesame seeds on top. Italian bread – Perhaps a bit closer to French bread in composition and appearance, American “Italian bread” is a lean white bread, often braided and covered in sesame seeds, with a thin but usually crisp crust and a soft crumb. American “Italian bread” does not particularly resemble many traditional Italian bread forms, but is very popular in both loaf form and roll form, where it is often closely associated with sandwich making.
Why are movie producers okay with pairing Naomie and Zoe again and again with White men (and an Asian in Ninja Assassin) in blockbuster mainstream films? It makes you wonder why these producers are willing to face the protests of racists by employing Black women in these roles. Do they think that the actresses are attractive enough that audiences won’t mind?
