The death of George Floyd and unfortunately many black people like him has finally started to open the eyes of people that racism is very alive and present. Over the past several days across my social media platforms I’ve seen people I follow be shocked that they were not aware that they were also contributing to this. I’m happy that this has made a lot of people share very talented black businesses, creators and others alike that deserve to be recognized. But what happens when this is no longer in the media eye or loses speed on the internet.
I wanted to put together a blog post of black owned businesses and the services they offer because as we can see it is very easy for black owned creators to be lost in the background. I just want us to continue to share the light on these amazing black creators in the industry and support them. Support comes in many forums for businesses. When funds are not available just by liking, commenting or sharing a post helps gets attention as well as following if you really love what that person does.

Live Queenly Boutique 👑
Live Queenly Boutique is a company I’ve mentioned several times on my Instagram. I’ve had to pleasure of purchasing hair bundles and a couple pair of lashes and satisfied is an understatement. From start to finish I received amazing customer service. I received my product always within the time frame. I got a direct message on Instagram on top of the included tips with the product letting me know how to take care of my hair and to reach out if I had any questions. The lashes are so beautiful even though I haven’t quite mastered putting them on lol.
