The last gasps of summer do have it’s benefits, ya’ll. It’s the time of year that fruits and vegetables are readily available at just about every region in the country for a decent price. As you scribble on your grocery list for next week’s shop, don’t forget to add these three: Tomatoes, eggplant, andRead More…
Don’t you just love stories about characters who start off hating each other and gradually build an insatiable attraction? A debut novel by an author with the pen name, “Sepia,” Coffee and Cream, Kat and Katrina, is a story about Kat Bautista, a professional bodybuilder and personal trainer who knows who he is and what he wants. […]
Tamera Mowry (who was unaffectionately dubbed, “white man’s whore”) is pregnant again by her HUSBAND, Adam Housley. Remember when this happened? I love how this couple continues to thrive!
Presenting Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Friedrich! A few pictures from our celebration with my in-laws in Germany. They met in church in 2009, and just got married in Germany amongst a winter wonderland!
First, it was our vocal talent. Second, they took our lips. Then, it was our asses. Now, it’s our color. I guess everyone is better at being a black woman than an actual BLACK WOMAN. I’m in utter shock right now. The other side will perhaps argue that this is “bronzer.” Really? Is that what […]
The affect of colorism in Black America continues to be a topic of contention. While many of us are dating and marrying interracially, the wounds from feeling rejected based on hue are still raw with many of us. Such an occurrence played out this week on our Facebook fan page, when I posted a video […]

If you haven’t yet seen our weekly Google+ Hangouts, you’re missing out! Lots of fun, good conversation, and a great way to connect with community. (Hint: skip to 1:18 and you’ll get a clue of yet ANOTHER love connection from our private G+ group!) I had fellow You Tuber, Wes Murphy, back to talk about […]
About four hours ago, the exchange below took place during our current discussion on the film “Light Girls”. I wish to thank Neecy for asking some insightful – and quite possibly for some, uncomfortable – questions that I feel deserve further exploration. I have crested this side bar to the main article so that readers […]
We’ve lived in Temecula for seven years, and while I’d heard some rumors about crazy, freak snow storms, I thought maybe there were a few flakes and a dusting. Nothing like what I woke up to this morning. It basically snowed from about 1AM to 8AM, and of course the kids were delighted… By the […]
Both Fawn Stone and Lakesha Yvette Walker were featured as singles on Interracial Marriage and Family, formerly Swirling and Marriage. I have not been single for quite some time but as a dating and life coach understand that it is quite hard out there for women everywhere to find love. Throw in beautiful, successful and […]
Right now, Temecula is under a freeze advisory, which is pretty unusual for Southern California. I’m mildly concerned about my fall garden, because there’s a few crops that are sensitive to frost. But what I won’t be worried about are the sprouts that I’m growing indoors. For the impatient gardener, growing sprouts can give you […]
Sharing is caring!
The people who make careers of trashing black women in social media might not have counted on something: Critically thinking men of all races might investigate these claims to either confirm or dismiss them. You also can’t count out the increasing numbers of non-black men who are dating and marrying black women disproving all the […]
I’m so excited for 2015, because we’re about to embark on one of the most exciting things we’ve ever done. We’re all going to go on a journey. A journey to be the BEST VERSION of ourselves. Whether it’s with your mind, body or spirit (or all of the above) we’re going to go on […]
By “Empress NK” “Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.” Abraham Lincoln “We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.” Max de Pree “Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” Dalai Lama “Research has shown […]
*Before you read on, being insulting or unnecessarily cruel in your comments won’t be tolerated, regardless of your hue.* When I heard about a new documentary as a sequel response to Dark Girls, a pretty groundbreaking and honestly painful look at how dark-skinned women are treated in the black community and shed light on […]
Why Do You Feel You Have to Explain? So much guilt I sense in reading some of the notes BB&W followers have about their preferences for non-black men–so much ringing of the hands. Why do we feel like we owe our community an explanation for our inclinations? Unfair Preferences… In the African American colorist caste […]
It was only a matter of time before it came to this. All of us, in this community, after years of bonding, will come together in pure “The Hangover” style, complete with a wedding. Yes; our very own “EarthJeff” will be married in Las Vegas, and the BB&W elite will be there celebrating and partying […]
We are finishing out the 2014 with pin-ups and a special message for our readers. Change is in the air. This will be the final Babe Wednesday for 2014 and the last that will appear on this blog. We have learned a lot since starting this series whose aim was to showcase […]
