2020 has not been easy on the Black community. The murders of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, protests, looting in underserved Black communities, and now Black-owned businesses on the rocks. Black people need to be supported in many areas, but a great place to start is by supporting Black-owned businesses.

Ivy's Tea Co. is where tea and hip-hop meet. Herbalist Shanae Jones launched the organic tea brand in 2016. Shanae pays homage to black culture through her tea. Some of the names of the teas include "Sister-Sister", "C.R.E.A.M", "Blow", and "Nip's Tea" honoring the late Nipsey Hustle.

NaturalAnnie Essentials

Looking for the perfect scent to set the mood in your home? Annie's candles are essential to set any mood. Her soy crafted candles will have you all the way, relaxed sis. She recently released Brown Sugar Rum candles just in time for the holiday season. If you're thinking about purchasing their amazing holiday scented candles better act fast! She frequently sells out. You can always purchase NaturalAnnie Essentials fun quote candles. Her "Currently Overthinking" and "Get Shit Done" candles are my new current fave.

Goodnight Darling

Homebody

Due to 2020 being messy, I think we have all embraced our true inner Homebody. This modern wellness brand will have you canceling all of your plans. Homebody is dedicated to those who are suffering from pain, stress, mood swings, or just plain ole "my non-existent cat is sick, so I can't go out tonight" syndrome. Their bath soak product is infused with CBD, vitamins and amethyst to help anyone struggling with mental health issues. The bath soaks may also double as fun-colored face mask.

A Little Wellness

OK, so maybe you don't need a whole lot of wellness, but just a little bit of wellness. A little wellness is a small Etsy stop shop for a gentle amount of care into your dietary routine. The brand began with female DJ Crystal DeVone and her passion for wellness. Her most popular product is her infused sea moss. Sea moss-infused selections range from Elderberry (for your immune system), Moringa (best for skin, hair, liver, and mood disorder to name a few), and Burdock (a powerhouse when it comes to antioxidants). These infused sea mosses are perfect for your morning smoothie.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
