A few years ago I ran across the Big Black Book of Web Sites. It was actually an article in Essence Magazine on the best sites for your every need. Of course I saved it because there seemed to be so many web sites that I would want to visit and share with the readers of the New Pittsburgh Courier. Here are some of the best of the best:
In health and wellness
Calorieking.com—do you want to know how many grams of fat were in that KFC meal you just ate? Get the 411 here.
Letsmove.gov—the First Lady’s site details how to eat right and get enough exercise.
Blackwomanshealth.org—track health news and studies related to Black women.
Blackdoctor.org—locate African-American physicians in your area.
In the world of travel there are some great sites:
Blackatlas.com, sponsored by American Airlines, is a portal tailored to African-American travelers (interesting stuff).
Invillas.com—rent some of the most astounding luxury properties for your next vacation. Please note this is not for the traveler on a budget.
You know I love the bargains and there are some great bargain sites.
Fashionvault.ebay.com—shop the biggest names in fashion and save up to 80 percent off, timing is everything on this one, sales only last 60 hours.
Bagborroworsteal.com—rent a Coach, Louis Vuitton or Prada bag. Please ladies if you really want one just buy it.
Shopathome.com—search 100,000 coupons and deals.
Renttherunway.com—browse and rent pieces for specials occasions (and pray someone notices it).
Geeks.com—locate huge deals on your favorite gadgets from this direct to consumer e-commerce site.
The sites for beauty and hair care are quite interesting. Keep in mind that many sites are sponsored by a product and really want to sell you something, but you can find good information.
Aad.org—The American Academy of Dermatology provides an A to Z breakdown of the signs and symptoms of various disorders of specific to Black skin.
Rxforbrownskin.com—renowned African-American dermatologist Susan Taylor, M.D., delivers top notch information and products.
Afrobella.com—created by Trinidad native Patrice Elizabeth Grell Yursik, this blog celebrates  natural hairstyles.
We all love beautiful shoes and there are tons of sites dedicated to footwear, here are a few.
Feverhoes.com— owned by African-American Natischa Harvey, this site features a wide variety of sexy and stylish women’s shoes worn by the likes of Raven Symone and Fantasia.
Samantahoes.com—check out the stylish array of shoes, including ones with wide widths.
Gwynthshoes.com- here, African-American designer Gwen Frempong-Boadu showcases her comfy yet sophisticated women’s shoe line, available in sizes up to 14.
Be careful shopping on line, use a safe and protected computer and shop with a credit card and not a card that is tied to your pay check.
