1. North West will be on the cover of WWD this month!


The daughter of Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West will star on the cover and have a spread in WWD. This is, without a doubt, the cutest thing I've ever seen.

2. Zandra Beauty, a plant-based skincare line founded by 18-year-old Zandra Cunningham, is now available at Target, Costco, Whole Foods and Wegmens!

Instead of having Under Armour, who Steph is sponsored by, throw him an All-Star Weekend party, he asked that they donate the funds to something lasting instead. Way to make an impact off the court as well, Steph!

5. Yolanda Ford was inaugurated as not only the first black mayor of Missouri City, Texas, but also as the first female mayor.
