Life is overwhelming at times, and when they are - it's time to turn inward. Our homes, clothes, and personal finances aren't nearly as important as our health and wellness. One of the most valuable lessons learned from last year was the importance of taking care of yourself. Whether it's your mind, your immune system, or what you're putting into your body, the emphasis on wellness is at the forefront.
It can be a sweet treat, a nice cocktail, or a CDB gummy; whatever helps you get through, we approve. Below is a wonderfully curated list of health, wellness, and food brands that will continue your #blackgirlglow all summer long.
