This week’s Wednesday Beauty is Zambian beauty Nasilele. Her smile could brighten the darkest room! If you’re down today, I hope her smile, lifted your spirits if only for a few seconds. Michael Flaherty’s photo captured her beauty perfectly.
And don’t forget to check out Michael Flaherty Flickr’s photo stream for even more fantastic photos!
I don’t normally come across fantastic headlines across the web but this one about Newt Gingrich’s South Carolina Primary win was concise and bold just the way I like my headlines. Whoever wrote this Huffington Post headline did a great job. Well done!
This week’s Wednesday Beauty was found on DiverseblkBeauty’s photostream on flickr.
The model didn’t have a name attached to her shot unfortunately, but she didn’t really need it. Her look, clothes and attitude in this shot combined helped to make her one of Black Liberal’s Wednesday Beauties.

And remember if you know a Black beauty or a post, idea you would like me to feature on my blog drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org I’d love to hear from you.
This week’s Wednesday Beauty is Shai White.
I love the colors and tones in this shot. Check out the photographer, Chris Willis’ other work on flickr.com.
Tide, a popular American laundry detergent, is running a new commercial featuring a stay-at-home dad speaking about the benefits of Tide Boost.
I can’t recall another major household brand, as well-known as Tide featuring a stay-at-home dad, I wonder if we’ll see more brands following suit?
At this moment corporate America, hell corporations in general, don’t deserve one iota of praise from the public but Proctor & Gamble has earned at the very least a “well done” for having the guts to flip the gender roles and promote this non-traditional spokesman and in effect, an idea, for one of their most beloved products. I applaud Proctor & Gamble’s efforts to empower men who have chosen to throw off society’s shackles and embrace the primary care-giver role which once the main and in most cases the only role for women. P&G, I tip my hat to you!
They both have the creepiest smiles I have ever seen.
Check out Nicki the Llama smiling from about 0.42-0.45 and tell me, isn’t that one of the creepiest smiles you’ve ever seen in your life? Well for me that smile was number one until I saw Herman Cain’s latest campaign ad, with him smiling at the end. I didn’t know what he was trying to accomplish did he want to go for inspiration and authenticity or did he just want to creep us all out around Halloween? Lol I don’t think he was going for the latter but after seeing him smile, at the end of that end most of the viewers probably did what I did lurch backward, raise an eyebrow and muttered, ”What the hell was that?”Lol
But it’s all good Mr.Cain you don’t need any of those fancy ads, your authenticity is winning you millions of friends and your campaign coffers are swelling so obviously you’re doing something right and people love it! But I’d practice my smiling in the mirror just a few more times before appearing in any more ads.
But to be fair Me And My Llama wins the best song contest hands down! So my dear vintage Sesame Street fans go ahead and sing along you know you want to and don’t worry if you feel like a kid when you’re singing it’s ok. A whole bunch of ‘big kids’ will be singing right along with you!
