It’s so nice to see that black business are F I N A L L Y getting the recognition and spotlight that they have deserved since day one. A lot of my fellow blogger friends have shared their “Black Owned Business” roundups, and I’ve decided to join in on the fun. It’s been quite the whirlwind of emotions + feelings towards everything that is happening in the world so please excuse me if you feel as tho this post is too late. I’ve done my best to break them up into categories and I will, of course, continue you to add as I discover more of them and try them out for myself 🙂

Happy Browsing! x

It brought me so much joy knowing that she does that. No body is shaped exactly the same, and it was nice to know that she caters to everyone by providing this option.
