I love to unapologetically sprinkle, dab, and pour my #BlackGirlMagic into everything I do.
I was effortlessly minding my business and being motivated by some amazing Women Entrepreneurs for #WomensHistoryMonth when I stumbled upon the instagram of @OursbyBlackjoy. I fell in love with everything they represented from Black owned businesses to spreading Black Girl Magic.
With that I STALKED their Instagram looking at what brands and businesses they worked with and being the communication/marketing student I am, the BRANDING. I'm in college and support as many businesses as I can, when I can, and got extremely, shamelessly excited when they where doing a February Giveaway. I usually don't do giveaways or contest because of those terrible childhood "sweepstake giveaway" memories I had.
sidenote: I grew up in a generation where Disney Channel was constantly doing giveaways to THE MOST MAGICAL PLACE IN THE WORLD that I NEVER won. But somehow they always emailed my mom about coming to the parks or on cruises (LOL, y'all know Disney was great at the whole bait and switch marketing).
Anyways, I decided to enter the giveaway where they asked us a question on how I spread my #BlackGirlMagic. I absolutely LOVE when there is a short answer question to things because I always go over and beyond for the questions I know the answer to.
Lets just say, I knew the answer:
I spread my Black Girl Magic through love, passion and positivity. Need I say more?
I spread my Black Girl Magic by empowering the ones I love.
I spread my Black Girl Magic every single day, in every single way that I can.
I wrote a lot more but this was just a few ways that I spread my Black Girl Magic. *Leave a comment on how you spread yours*
After receiving a sweet email from the creator (which I love when a company is that personal), I was LIT. I was even more excited when I was out of town and found out the box actually arrived. In the box I found a sweet thank you card along with 6 products that melted my heart.
Our Hair: Sistren + Seed Crown Oil: a lovely oil blend for my crown. It not only smells amazing but it has a therapeutic smell that is great for pre-meditation.
Our Skin: Body by Nature Coconut Rose Melt Body Bar: a soap that I have already fallen in love with not only the smell but the moisture it leaves me with.
Our Beauty: USHIND122 Crown Earrings & Kecia Liquid Lipstick: I cannot wait to wear these amazing queen earrings. I must give a round of applause to THE most Black Girl Friendly Lip color. I am extremely hesitant about certain colors on my skin tone and this color is perfect for every shape of brown.
Our Health: Honey Pot Feminine Wash: this product is what got me the most excited. I had just recently purchased the travel sensitive bottle at a pop up shop I attended and automatically fell in love with the product. Not only does it cleanse and promote a healthy PH balance but it is made with NATURAL ingredients *BOOM**mind blown*
Last but not least I sincerely loved the Black Girl Magic tiny notebook by Inclusive Randomness. That I automatically threw into my bag to jot down my next magical idea on.
In all I absolutely loved not only the products but the meaning and purpose of the business. I sincerely enjoy businesses that are tailored to me.
Ours by Blackjoy is definitely For Us, By Us.
