The last few days have a been a big wake up call for not only me, but for the world. Black Lives Matter, and while I’ve always felt this way, I was not a good ally. As life moves forward I don’t want to change the subject, I want the subject to be a part of my every-day actions. I want to live more inclusively. And here on the blog I want to share more inclusively. In the past I didn’t do enough, and I want to do better for my family, my community surrounding me, and for my online community as well. This blog is not an “important site” by any means – it’s not curing cancer or saving lives and I am not an expert on anything. It’s a place for us to discover pretty things. But in purposefully sharing more black and minority owned brands, I hope to make it a more inclusive and supportive place for all of us.

One thing that I’m doing is diversifying my social media feed, diversifying what shows I’m watching, diversifying what I’m reading. Harder to do, I want to diversity my friendships. Sure I have black friends, but I live a pretty white Charleston life. It’s a stark difference to our much more diverse relationships (both social and professional) that we have on Harbour Island, Bahamas. It’s never felt intentional, but it’s messed up nonetheless. Since sharing is what we do around here, I just wanted to share the thoughts above (thank you for reading), and I want to highlight a few black owned brands/business/creators that I think you’ll love.
