Tis The Season To Buy Things Made By Women.
We have a week til Christmas which means it's a great time to buy a thing or two for people you love - or yourself, whatever suits your fancy.
I've decided to compile a short list of women who are making dope things you may be able to get as Christmas gifts. Don't worry if you've missed the cutoff though, they aren't going anywhere.
1. Ravenell by Raquel Ravenell
She is the dopest copper jewelry maker I know - the only - but still, the dopest. Raquel thinks outside the box with her jewelry. It's one of a kind and fits every occasion.
I have worn her stuff from headbands, to nose rings, to arm cuffs, to rings and chains. She has original jewelry for sale and does custom orders as well. Ravenell has a sale going on for the holidays. Hit her up and buy everything.
2. Body Crystals by Crystal Simmons
Body Crystals is the best line of products for moisturizing and exfoliating the skin.She created them (and still creates them) in her kitchen in a process she calls "whip and worship."
These products are so convenient to use, they smell amazing, and literally leave your skin glowing every time. Her beard oils and body buffs for men are a new popular item. Get to her before she's all sold out for the holidays!
3. Divinely Couture Beauty by DawnMarie Glenn
There are many make up artists in the world, but I have yet to find one like Dawn Marie Glenn. She not only creates art with her brush, but she literally creates the products she uses from eyelashes to lip gloss to colorful palettes beautiful for every skin tone.
Her vibrant soul comes to life in the way she uses color and contour to enhance original beauty. Find her, buy her products, and book her for every moment you need to look and feel like a work of art.
4. Art by Fiyabomb
I found Fiyabomb on Instagram through a mutual friend. Her art captivates and speaks a truth beyond words. Not only is her art beautiful, she freely shares her personality, struggles, and truths through her words, creativity, and goals.
She is a daily inspiration for how to live the artrepreneur life without compromising the soul of your art. Her work is everlasting, enjoy it - let it speak to you.
5. Books For A Good Life by Kristin Hemingway
Kristin is a go - muthafkn - getter. She is the type of person to buy a ticket to Kenya on a whim and find joy in every moment life gives to her. In the last year, she has started a podcast, organized a racial reconciliation summit, been to Africa twice and authored three books.
You can catch her in Starbucks sipping a drink and working on her next new thing that helps others live their best life. Check out her books that help women and youth move forward in grace and health.
