Monday Mentions {Vol. 5}

No intro necessary… let’s get right into it! As always, by clicking the images, you will be directed to the mentioned link.

#1 – The power couple behind has put together what looks to be a must-see film documenting real-life marriages and the triumphant challenges they’ve faced. There are a few screenings coming up in DC, Chicago and Atlanta. I plan to attend the screening in DC this weekend, so let me know if you’ll be there. The trailer looks promising –

#2 – shared some great news  for all you M.A.C. Makeup Lovers out there. We all hate  it when our favorite lipstick, blush, or eyeshadow becomes discontinued but the good news: You can now vote for your most loved discontinued items and the winning items will be put back into production. I’ve already placed my vote!

#3 – Did you know that Aretha Franklin was married to the colonel from A Different World? What about Cicely Tyson and Miles Davis? Shocking news? shocks us all a bit with their list of “Celebrities Who We Didn’t Know Were Married”.

#4 – I may not have the world’s flyest closet of clothes but that doesn’t mean I’m not a lover of fashion! Last week, a friend introduced me to an online picture party of black women “killing it” with their fashion game. The pictures ranges from fun & funky to classy yet chick styles. Take a look for yourself and tell me what you think. They’re on Facebook too!

#5 – Today’s last mention is not a love story. It’s not about weddings, fashion, beauty or makeup… it’s about justice. Hopefully by now, you know the tragic story of Trayvon Martin. I know many people are deeply saddened by this story and they feel helpless but you aren’t. You can help by taking one moment to sign the petition created by Trayvon’s mother and father in hopes of having the murderer arrested and charged with taking the life of an innocent young man. Please sign and spread the word. We can’t be silent about this and let it falter. Thanks in advance!
