Celebrating 17 Years of Black Love with Self-Care


With COVID came no travel, no dining out and no parties with friends. In previous years we've celebrated with vacations (Mexico, South Africa, Australia...), brunch with our friends, and dining out at some of our favorite restaurants. This year, we had to come up with a new plan. With all the stress of the year, we decided we could both use a little self-care and, to add an extra element, decided to feature some of our favorite black-owned businesses to close out Black August.


The weekend included good food, pedicures, massages, our favorite movies/tv shows, and of course some good dranks. From our clothing, to products we love, we are highlighting a few of our favorite Black-owned businesses. We hope our self-care weekend inspires you to care for yourself, the one you love, and support the black-owned business, brands and products we love.


Check out our video to see how we celebrated and how we used all the products and brands listed below.
