There is no shortage of relationship books being marketed to women. In such a flooded field, a book that would be worth your time to read needs to make a value proposition that the savvy consumer can’t resist. Author Roslyn Hardy Holcomb has created a relationship book that offers tremendous value and, best of all, […]
Got this note from “LB”, a woman who ditched the naysayers and found her true love. Here’s her story, in her words…
It is my pleasure to announce that our much-loved Lorraine Spencer aka SwirlQueen has published two children’s books!
When I came across this couple I was actually drawn into the photo by the intense and deep love Danish Andreas Anderskou and South African Zani Suttle have for one another. Although they actually live in New York city, the Webersburg Wine Estate in Stellenbosch (Western Cape) South Africa was quite the perfect venue for this handsome and lovely couple to exchange their vows. Wow! Photographs by Christopher Munton Photography.
In my last post, I shared with you some fabulous fashion trends garnered from Lurhmann’s The Great Gatsby movie. This time, I am bringing you the amazing and I do mean AMAZING beauty trends perfect for Summer and Fall. They are definitely vintage, bold and not for the lighthearted, but in all of these trends, I am sure there is one in here for every woman.
A couple of days ago I was led to a story on one of those white nationalists sites about a white racist who loves black women and is with one of the sweetest black women out there. You know how the cartoons show eyes moving around in the head with that sound effect that kids enjoy so much? Well that was me when I read it. I can’t in good conscience share that link but if you look hard enough you will find it.
The Week in Review/Hot Topics That We Didn’t Get Time to Write About will be a new and recurring feature on BB&W.
Meet Richard and Alana Newman, creators of the uniquely cute and amazing “Happy Couple Workout.”
BB&W is officially not a BWE blog, yet in practice and intent, BB&W is very much a BWE blog. … my purpose is to direct the attention of the leadership of BB&W to an uncomfortable set of questions, culminating in an appeal to take on responsibility for promoting the ideas of BWE to the those who could benefit from them, regardless of the level of support coming from the traditional BWE bloggers.
I’ve been getting this question a lot lately: “Chris! Your hair is so thick and healthy looking! What are you doing?!” Like my curls? I have to thank Philip B for them. Just purchased the Philip B Curly hair styling kit from Gilt.com at a discount (normally this line with wacky crazy expensive) […]
So apparently Jennifer Hudson’s guy, and baby daddy (anyone notice they’ve been engaged for about 100 years?) says he thinks Jennifer needs to dial back on Jenny Craig. Here’s the skinny:
Check out these timeless looks!
“Hi, I’m a 19 years old and I’m very interesting in swirling I have had interest in white guys before but never really made an attempt at dating them because I figured they don’t date black girls, but right now I have a predicament I really like this guy I think he likes me but some of the black boys tell me that he is just trying to be nice that white guys don’t like black girls, and my brother knows I like this guy and he told me if I date a white guy he is going to disown me I just don’t know what to do. Thank you for listening.”
This post is a bit tricky because it deals with the issue of intersectionality. I strongly suggest people read up on the term and who is impacted. I say this because intersectionality is something that smacks black women upside the head from many angles depending on who they are, and how many different levels of privilege work for or against them.
Forget about “What The Cuss?!” file this story under “OMG Seriously?? GTFOOH!!”
One prominent blogger has concluded that, because I made two short comments recently, on a couple of blogs, that were in poor taste, and because she kicked me off her blog four years ago, that I am the stealthiest of stealth concern trolls, spending years gaining you all’s trust so that I can pursue my true an agenda of “pissing on BW’s heads”. Then she uses me as an example of someone who has been improperly allowed to be a supposed ally due poor vetting by BW.
President Barack Obama gave the commencement speech at the only all male historically black institution of higher education in the United States, Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA. President Obama could have made his speech about anything he wanted, but he choose to make a call to personal responsibility the foundation of the speech, which says a lot to those who are bothering to pay attention.
I’m totally over the moon! You regulars remember ‘Young Teach,’ the really cute music teacher from Tennessee who had recently acted upon his desire to date black women. So he started a blog, “Adventures of Swirl Man,” and bought “Swirling,” and read it in two days. He was a contributor here for a while, and […]
