Design created by Hope James

Black Bloggers and Creatives chatted with Michelle Benson via Zoom a week ago about the Black Business list that she put together during this quarantine period. 

Since we started staying home, I have been shopping for different Black-Owned Businesses. At the same time, I created a list documenting these businesses. Well, girl, I have spent a lot of money buying Black…Ha, ha, ha…

-Michelle Benson told me during our zoom conversation 

Check out these Black-Owned Businesses and get to know why  Michelle B. chose them:

Over the last 10 months, I have been trying to more consistently support black-owned businesses. This is my list of curated companies that I have either purchased from, had friends recommend, or stumbled upon while searching for a certain product. By no means is this list exhaustive of all the black-owned businesses out there but a list that I hope to continue to add to as I learn about more black businesses out there. Some of my personal favorites are highlighted below. 

1• Revival Training – Lucy is an amazing personal trainer, will meet you where you are and design a program that will help you exceed your weight loss goals.

 2 Belle Bar Organics – This product works wonders for my newly natural hair! It hydrates, moisturizes, and keeps my curls poppin! This mother and daughter team are my hair goals.

 3• Buttah Skincare – My skin has never glowed so much! I love the way this product makes my face feel and look. It’s light, airy, and affordable.

 4• BodyLove Products – Sabrina’s spirit and loving energy are in every batch of her handcrafted body products. I always feel like I’m getting a hug from her when I use her products. 

5• Ruth Davis Beauty – Do you want your face BEAT to the GODS without looking like you have on caked-on makeup? Ruth Davis is the truth! From high glam to an everyday look, Ruth has you covered. 

6• The Nail Bar MN – Since moving to MN and desperately searching for a black nail tech that was into healthy nail care and professional, I stumbled on The Nail Bar MN and have not looked back. 

7 Glow by Daye – Satin bonnets and hair scarves that are affordable, stylists and durable! I love this product. 

8 Rentid / NW10 Interiors – Looking for affordable, unique, and stylish interior design? Whether you’re a renter or homeowner, Claudia is the right woman to make your space the envy of all your friends.
