Happy Friday Family!!! I know it’s been awhile, but I hope you’re all doing well. I’m doing pretty good myself (considering everything that’s going on in the world). I’ve spent the last month trying to figure out ways that I can make more positive and adequate contributions to the world, my world. I still haven’t figured it out completely, but I’m working on it.
But in the mean time, as a black woman who loves her black sisters and brothers, I feel that it is my duty to make sure that I’m using my platform/blog to do my part to push my community forward.
For the past few years, around the holidays (Memorial Day, Independence Day, etc.) I usually do a blog post featuring/promoting all the sales that are happening that weekend. This year for the 4th of July weekend, I decided to do something similar. Only this time around, I’m featuring black owned businesses. Some of these businesses, I’ve shopped multiple times. And some of them, I plan to shop in the very near future! There is something for everyone here. So, check them out!

The idea behind the brand/statement Jolie Noire, is that black is beautiful. Jolie Noire stands for Pretty Black in French. We are primed to think dark colors (specifically black) are negative and light colors are good. In an effort to level the playing field, we’re working to shape the minds of onlookers and change the meaning, emotions, and values associated with black. Color is something that doesn’t come pre labeled, we label it… At Jolie Noire we choose to believe that black, like other colors, is beautiful!
She Is This started as a way to inspire women of color and beyond – young and old to not just embrace their skin, but celebrate it and everything it comes with.
Curly, coily, chocolate, caramel, freckles, moles – It’s all beautifully stunning and worth sharing. I hope you can see yourself in one of my illustrations and know that every bit of that shade of brown you’re wearing is perfection. There is no wrong way to BE YOU.
