Mars thinks - Sooooo, maybe I should start by informing you all that Tamron is on my official crush list. She would probably have to wear my old gym shorts and a 3XL sweatshirt in order for me not to like the way she looks. However, [Read more…]

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – My Visit to Truth + Beauty Spa

Triple B on the Scene at Truth + Beauty Spa in Long Island, NY

I recently headed out to the borough of Long Island (for you non-New Yorkers, Long Island isn’t really a borough — this is my attempt to be funny) for a visit to Truth + Beauty Spa. This posh medi-spa opened Spring 2013 and offers a wide range of treatments for brides-to-be. So when the invitation for me and a friend to spend an afternoon at Truth + Beauty landed in my inbox, I was all in! Here’s the scoop: [Read more…]

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Flash Tattoos

Flash Tattoos: My latest crush!

When I was a freshman in college, I got my first (and only) tattoo. My older cousin took me to get it and thankfully provided some guidance. She ensured the location was clean, licensed and that I didn’t get some teenage boyfriend’s name permanently stenciled on my body. I went with an ankh on my upper right thigh and nearly 20 years later I have no regrets.

But, every now and then a gal wants to mix things up — and not necessarily with permanent ink — with no guilt or worry. So when my friend Pam introduced me to Flash Tattoos, I was excited. These metallic henna-inspired temporary tattoos are so hot! [Read more…]

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Oyin Handmade

Bennu Bliss: Jamyla and her husband, Pierre, co-founders of Oyin Handmade and their sons Osei and Sadat

One of the products included in gift bags for BlackBridalBliss.com’s 4th anniversary fete was Hair Dew samples from Oyin Handmade. Hair Dew is ideal for naturally wavy, curly and/or kinky tresses because its filled with moisturizing goodies like coconut oil and aloe vera but void of harmful ingredients like petroleum and paraffin. I’m currently transitioning and I’ve been relaxer-free for eight months so my strands yearn for hydration and a yummy scent to boot. All of Oyin’s products are green-friendly and founder Jamyla Bennu and her husband Pierre pride themselves in this. What I’m really feeling most about Oyin Handmade isn’t even their growing line of products — although they all seem fab and I can’t wait to try more — but rather that the couple behind this growing Baltimore-based company is so freakin’ fly.
