You might have clicked on this blog post thinking, what even is "black out day"? Well, I am so happy I get to be the person to educate you! Today, July 7, is a one-day social media boycott where different social platforms are asking others to purchase only from black-owned businesses. I am a proud supporter & encourage all of you to spend today exploring new businesses!
Another thing you might be asking is; well where can I even find a black-owned business? Lucky for you, I am writing this blog post to share my top ten favorite businesses run by amazing black women.
1. Beauty Bakerie
When I asked my Instagram followers for their favorite black-owned business, this company was the most suggested (they highly recommend her powder btw). Beauty Bakerie is an amazing beauty company. You can find things from foundation, palettes, lipstick, brushes, and more! Check is out here.
2. Vintage Chic Boutique
This boutique is actually local for me! I went in for the first time a couple weeks ago & I am so happy I came across it! They have the cutest clothing & accessories. Everything is very unique, you can find things from everyday wear to full glam while shopping. You can check this boutique out here.
3. Aqualime Skincare
Wanting to find new body & skincare products? Look no further! Aqualime Skincare is a company that sells clay masks, body butters/oils, bath soaks, & body scrubs. I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on some of her products! You can shop here.
4. Southern Elegance
I actually didn't know about this company until one of my Instagram followers suggested I check her out, & I am SO happy I have found this company! Southern Elegance is a candle company creating beautifully crafted candles & bath products. If you know me, you know that I have a candle burning non-stop in my home! Something I love about this company is its southern charm, candles with the names of "Back Roads", "Front Porch", & "Palmetto Breeze". Who's going to race me to their site to buy some amazing candles? Shop Southern Elegance here.
