Spring Cleaning

The Magic of Tidying Up has become another Netflix phenomenon, and for good reason. However, Marie Kondo and her KonMari method of cleaning and organization have been around for years. Whether you’re ready for a major fashion overhaul or just want to examine your possessions a little more deeply, we can all get our lives together one KonMari step at a time. Now ask yourself, “does this spark joy?”

Jesus and Jollof Podcast

 

If you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t seen HBO’s Insecure, then I’m sorry in advance. If you have, then you already recognize and respect Yvonne Orji’s genius. Add author/maker of moves/social commentator Luvvie Ajayi into the mix and the pair is pure magic! Named after the “two things they can’t live without”, their podcast is an uplifting and funny narrative about life, love, money, and everything in between. We’re here for it.

Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show

 

 

This Spring’s Bronner Bros. is in NOLA and we couldn’t be more excited! Catch Mayvenn and crew at Booth 705 in the Convention Center from March 30 - April 1. From hair and fashion shows to the showcasing of the biggest beauty brands, Bronner is truly a sight to see year after year. We love when our fam shows up and out - let us know if you’ll be in town and say hello!

Going Outside, Regularly

This may sound obvious, but going outside is a lost art. When’s the last time you looked away from your screen and took a long walk? Can you remember the last time you took in everything around you and appreciated nature in all its glory? As the rain dies down, let’s make it a point to unplug, get some fresh air, and recharge.

Fenty’s Stunna Lip Paint

 

 

Rih Rih is the queen of versatility, period. We all know that her Fenty brand is breaking barriers and cashing checks, but a few products have been become our ultimate faves. Her Stunna Lip Paint is long-lasting, non-sticky, and full of pop. What’s not to love?!

Cristina Martinez aka Sew Trill

 

 

We. Love. Black. Art. When an artist’s aesthetic gives you all of the feels, it’s mission accomplished. Cristina’s take on women, beauty, and lifestyle intrigues us...now the only thing left to do is pick out which prints we want to order!

Black History...Everyday

We’re bigger than a day, a month, or even a season. Taking the time to appreciate our contributions and highlight us in a positive way isn’t only beautiful, it’s completely necessary. Cheers to celebrating Black History all the time, because it matters.

Travel Noire

 

 

This site is a resource for all things travel-related, from flight deals and restaurant guides to how to spend a day in Black-owned *insert city name*. If you’re ready to book a trip or just itching to expand your worldview, add Travel Noire to your list.

Bangin’ Bobs

 

 

Will we ever get tired of a snatched bob? Probably not. Edgy Edna, pictured here from our Ready to Wear collection, serves just the right amount of class and sass. Throwing on the wig and heading out isn’t the issue - it’s picking which one is our favorite!

Satya + Sage

 

 

Founded by Sonja Haile, Satya + Sage is a “self-care inspired line of handmade, eco-friendly candles and home fragrance products”. Their scents are heavenly but not overpowering; they’re the perfect addition for bringing better energy to any home or office space. Their site reads: “Each Satya + Sage product is curated to provide you with an intention. We believe that acting with intention is the most effective way to uncover your truth and begin making progress toward the life you want.” Simply beautiful.
