As we’ve covered here on Triple B before, few things get Black women as emotionally riled up as the topic of hair. Blogger Nikki Walton’s cult following from her blog, Curly Nikki, is yet another example of this. Nikki’s first book, Better Than Good Hair (Amistad) is all the buzz right now and for good reason. The book, co-written by Ernessa T. Carter, is chock-full of useful info on transitioning from relaxed to natural tresses, the big chop, tips on caring for your daughter’s mane, kitchen beautician recipes, product reccos and tons of pics from real women like you. Although I currently relax my hair, I was natural from 2000-2008 and boy do I wish this type of book was accessible back then! Well, Triple B called in a couple of favors and secured a spanking new copy for you! Wanna know how to win it? [Read more...]

Confession: My very first “boyfriend” wrote all of the lyrics of A Teenage Love by Slick Rick on loose leaf paper and slipped it to me after school. I saved the papers for months and cherished them like my beloved Cabbage Patch Kids. Even I recognized waaaay back then that this gesture took a lot of effort. (Remember, this was before the days of simply turning to Google to retrieve the lyrics of a song.)
Fast forward to 2012. A talented group of folks has taken this concept up a few notches (okay, more than a few) to bring us Song Bouquet. This innovative company writes personalized love songs for anyone looking to express their feelings in a bespoke way. [Read more...]

Please join Triple B in wishing Beyonce and her hubby Jay-Z a happy 3rd wedding anniversary! We wish the influential couple many years of happiness. (Word is they are celebrating in the sunny Caribbean on the Abaco Islands.)

I’m still in awe of how they pulled that off!
