The Guilt-Free Pleasure Collection

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.

GLOW Luminous Facial Serum

The GLOW Luminous Facial Serum is a lightweight, hydrating, and high potency face oil that is a must-have this season. On many wishlists of your favorite influencers, this serum can be used on fresh skin or as the last step to your skincare routine.

Okay. So, This Is Why Oral Sex Is Probably Not Satisfying You (Fully).

To this day, folks will debate that one of my favorite songs by the R&B group SWV, “Rain” is about sex even though Coko has made it clear that it’s not. Now another one of their classics, “Downtown”? That’s about the matter entirely. In fact, some hail it as being one of the most sex-positive songs of its time when it comes to — we’re all grown here, right? — cunnilingus. Its praise makes a lot of sense being that it is the act that helps women climax the most.
