Black-Owned Businesses

We're getting into the groove of this new year and wanted to kick it off with another style interview! You might have seen us feature Viv on our Instagram back in July of 2020, and this time we brought her awesomeness back for the full style interview. Viv is an educational psychologist, blogger, educator and coach who runs the...
I felt better about sipping a cocktail after I slapped on makeup, a spritz of perfume & decorated mahself w/ jewels. THAT is how my joggers + jewelry outfit was born.
Scotti and I were recently guests on Momtourage's video podcast, Live From The Couch! In our episode we discussed holiday style...but with a decidedly 2020 bent. Which means joggers, obviously. The Unexpected Answer To Dressing Up Joggers? Jewelry I had a realization several weeks ago — after a day of sweatpants and unwashed hair and no-makeup — that I...
To spark joy, we're going sustainable. Think handmade, artisanal, eco-friendly, Black-owned, fair trade & community supporting. Beautiful home decor, right this way.
I went in search of sustainable home decor inspiration, because I wanted to take a minute to celebrate the folks out there who work extra to create, find, and/or source items that are handcrafted — by artisans, sustainably and to support communities — that this community might otherwise not have access to. All of the businesses highlighted below...
We're on to fun pops of color for accents like umbrella stands, pendants & pillows,+ sales at WIlliams Sonoma & PB. Jungalow's on our home decor list, too.
Happy Hanukkah! I hope your first night of light was totally lit! We pulled out the electric skillet (that links to the current best sale price on the one we have — it's 10+ years into latke-making and going strong.) I do giggle when my friend Lauren refers to it as my Latke Maker — she's not wrong. We...
A shop small opportunity we're thrilled about: Makers Union PDX & Portland Made offer Window Shop 2020. Support local artists + benefit the Black Resilience Fund. SO good.
My dear friend — photographer, maker, and Portland Textile Month organizer — Christopher Dibble, recently collaborated to create a new makers union here in Portland called Makers Union PDX. The artisan pieces from local craftspeople are gorgeous, and the efforts to support the community, and specifically The Black Resilience Fund, are lovely. So, I wanted to share it with...
A (rapidly growing) list of small businesses we're obsessed with, many Black- or woman-owned and/or sustainable. Support these 30+ shops that spark joy.
Supporting small businesses has become increasingly more and more important to us here at TME — and especially now during a pandemic when small shops are really struggling. So if you are trying to shop small this holiday season, or if you are just looking for wildly unique gifts, this post is for you. 30+ Small Businesses With Really Great...
Consider this a shop small holiday gift guide of seriously cool, wildly unique & practical gifts — for everyone on your list. Sustainable, Black-owned, local. It's all here.
We love small businesses over here at The Mom Edit, and this year — with so many hit especially hard by the pandemic, we're all making concerted efforts to shop small. So it's no surprise that, when starting on a regular 'ol gift guide, I was almost halfway through and realized that the products I chose were all from...
Fave finds include Black Friday sales, lucky charms & numbers, Covid-19 Family Diaries & a black-owned business spotlight on The Iconic Home.
Currently on my mind: Black Friday Sales, live, with early starts (my favorite among them so far are Land's End-code: rake and West Elm,) Good and Bad luck (check out this money tree named Dinero!!!), Covid-19 Positive Diaries Week 1, Quarantine, the number 46, and Happy Friday the 13th! Forget 13, that unlucky number. I'm on 46. I turned 46...
Cute mugs, travel carafes, candles, throws & accessories...we're finding our fave meaningful gifts & home decor from Black-owned businesses
We don't normally shop for holiday gifts quite this early in the season. And in the past, we haven't directed our search for gifts specifically toward Black-owned businesses, organic, sustainable and handcrafted gifts. This year, is different, and we're doing all that. What began as a deep-dive into shopping Black-owned home decor this year has been, for me, one of...
A few of our favorite things we have, love & appreciate to be more comfortable at home. Think candles, comfy chairs, luxe sheets & even a sexy sweater.
Come Sunday, I will have completed another turn around the sun. Anyone else feel like they aged 10 years over the one actual year that was 2020? I've been hinting in my posts for random fun and beautiful things as gifts over the past few weeks, when really, I probably should just be asking for better eye cream —...
