Most of us — whether we’re planning brides or not — are trying to get and stay more fit these days. And a significant part of this quest is eating healthier. My friend, and fellow bride-to-be, Tianna Feaster recently penned a cookbook that can assist us all with doing just that. Tianna’s book, Feast Your Eyes on This, is full of yummy yet nutritious recipes that even the most challenged folks in the kitchen will appreciate. And [insert long drumroll here...] Tianna, who has been featured in ESSENCE magazine and is a regular expert guest on WUSA-9 News in Washington, D.C., has given an autographed copy of her book to Triple B for the latest GIVEAWAY! Here’s all you need to do to win: [Read more...]

The case retails for $39.99 — but you can have it for free — and includes two transparent removable pouches that can fit easily in your purse, handbag, or carry-on tote. [Read more...]

Happy Monday! Today, Triple B announces another happy giveaway winner. Jacqueline Royall of New York City is the recipient of those two awesome beauty products in the TAY skincare giveaway first mentioned a couple weeks back. Royall, who favors a diet full of organic fruits and veggies and void of meat is delighted with her Clean Orange Soap and Youthful Eye Treatment because she avoids products with sulfates and/or parabens. And just what was her winning response to the giveaway question about incorporating something green/eco-friendly into a wedding day you’re wondering? Check it out:
“I think an excellent way for someone to make their wedding day eco-friendly is by donating leftover reception food to City Harvest or a similar organization for the hungry and homeless. Or, a couple could ask their reception venue to compost as much trash from the event as possible,” shares Royall.
Sharing is indeed caring. I loved that her response suggested paying it forward. Join Triple B in congratulating Jacqueline Royall and stay tuned for more exciting giveaways on BlackBridalBliss.com in the near future.
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.) No one can forget how secretive the duo was about their NYC nuptials in Jay-Z’s Tribeca home and to this day the public hasn’t seen nary a wedding pic from the Knowles-Carter affair. I’m still in awe of how they pulled that off!
