Show your support for small businesses!
As part of making a commitment to the Black Lives Matter movement, there are lots of things we could all be a bit better at. One of which is getting behind Black Pound Day: the campaign designed to support Black-owned businesses and the growth of the Black economy.
The first Black Pound Day was held on 27 June and will be every first Saturday of the month going forward. The next one is 1 August, and is essentially just an opportunity to treat yourself to something GREAT, while also supporting a Black-owned entrepreneur.
Because seriously, not only are there some incredible beauty brands that should be on your radar, but some beautiful Black-owned interior and lifestyle stores you should be aware of, too. Prepare for your bank account to hate you.
