YWW’s Monday Mentions {Vol. 4}

Did I mention that it’s Monday? That means another round of Monday Mentions. I’ll let you hop right into it. Enjoy! :)


#1 – recently announced a contest for guys that are planning to propose. Six finalists will be flown to Disney World to surprise their ladies with a special proposal. If you know a friend or maybe you know your boyfriend is just waiting for that special opportunity (wink), go ahead, copy and paste the link and email it to him. We won’t tell! :)

#2 – Do you love our FLOTUS’s style as much as I do? If so, you should take a trip to the nearest bookstore and pick up Commander in Chic: A Real Woman’s Guide to Managing Her Style Like a First Lady”. The book was authored by former ESSENCE Beauty & Cover Director, and current Editor-at-Large, Mikki Taylor. It’s full of great fashion tips as well as some of the most stunning photos of Mrs. Obama. Makes a great coffee book too!

#3 – I know many African-American brides struggle to find cake toppers that accurately resemble themselves and their hubbies. I stumbled across this lovely chocolate cake topper on Preston Bailey’s blog and while it doesn’t scream “black couple” (actually maybe it shouldn’t, lol) I do think it would be a great addition to just about any cake. Click the photo to see how to buy!

#4 – What does every bridesmaid have to have on wedding day? A bridesmaid’s dress, right? Then why not surprise them with these super cute personalized hangers? I think it’s a great keepsake that can be used well past wedding day. Do you agree?

#5 – I used to have a love/hate relationship with makeup. I loved how it made me feel all “fabulous” but I really didn’t like that I didn’t know how to apply it like the pros. Today, I still don’t know how to apply it like the pros but I’ve come a veryyyy long way thanks to YouTube Makeup Sensation, JackieO. She is so good as what she does and is a great teacher. If you’re thinking of DIY-ing your makeup for your wedding day, check out this bridal makeup tutorial by JackieO. I think you’ll like it.


P.S. – I hope you found something useful. Just as a disclaimer, I have not been paid to promote these items. These are honestly just fun finds that I’ve stumbled across through the previous week. Purchase at your own pleasure and risk. :) Check back later this week for a real wedding feature!
