Like everyone else, my husband and I watched in horror as the news about the coordinated terrorist attacks in Paris unfurled. It’s the worst attack on the French since World War II. So…this is sort of…their 9/11. I’ve observed the mass immigration of Middle Eastern and North African refugees, as well as the resistance byRead More…
I got a chance to catch up with some of my BB&W girls last week when we covered the Loving Day Flagship Celebration in New York, and MAN!! was I so glad to catch up with BB&W’s very own, Tracy Renee Jones. It’s one thing to read her advice post on how to flirt and celebrate your feminiinity and sexuality, it’s another thing to see her in action.
