Spotlight on Black Businesses: Day 1

I’M BAAAAACCCK!!!Yes AmoreLuxe.com is back in action and instead of making an announcement regarding when I would post, I decided to just do it! I always wanted this site to be about encouraging and uplifting others but I wanted to do something different for my first post since taking an hiatus. While I was talking to my friend Amber (who helped me out tremendously with the project that I’ve been working on!) I decided that I wanted to do a photoshoot to highlight people in my life who have inspired not only me but others who watch and are motivated to get out there and be the best version of themselves by doing what they love. And you know I had to self-promote as well lol but in all seriousness, these individuals have made a great impact on my life and are part of the reason why I was excited to get back into blogging and I will thank each one of them in the posts that I will be doing over the next 3 days! First up is the group of 3 whose merchandise I’m actually wearing so if you like the t-shirts, hit them up! Read on to find out more about what lies beyond their apparel!

Regina Pearl (@hairgirlreginapearl)

There is so much I could say about my girl Regina who is one of my closest friends. She is the definition of a hustler and someone who never ceases to amaze me. Her work ethic is ridiculous not to mention, she is so talented at her craft which if you haven’t figured it out by now is hair styling. I would consider her an artist because her cut and color skills are true masterpieces. Speaking of cuts, she’s the only one I will let cut my natural hair and I’m reluctant when she does it even though I know its the right thing to do! If you are in the NYC/NJ area and are in need of a stylist who can cut, color, press, twist, loc, relax etc. check out her salon Hair Girl Regina Pearl on 124 West 24th Street in NYC. You can also find out more info on this talented woman (including how to make an appointment because she books up super fast) by checking out her IG page @hairgirlreginapearl. Regina, thank you for always encouraging me to be my very best and making me feel like a million bucks every time I leave your salon. You’re so in demand not only because of your talent but because of your heart!  Love you girl!

 

Nafeesah (@buildherupllc)

I met Nafeesah last summer at my girl Tiffany’s pop up shop and was inspired by her story and her message. Buildherupllc is about uplifting women and making them feel that they are more than enough. She is so full of light and positivity and I am so happy that we’ve met because I feel that we are on a similar path when it comes to empowering women. I definitely agree with the mantra on my shirt that says “Real Queens Fix Each Other’s Crowns” and this queen is only just beginning and I cannot wait to see what else is in store for her. Visit her IG page @buildherupllc to purchase her apparel as well as receiving daily inspiration that we all need in our lives. Nafeesah, thank you for being so genuine and sweet and make sure that you create that shirt that we discussed because I am definitely buying that one as well! You truly shine from the inside out and I want you to continue to teach and inspire because the sky is the limit! All Love:)

 

Jae (@mr_international_bmore)

Jae whether he knows it or not was part of the inspiration behind this t-shirt promo project! I purchased the shirt that you see me wearing above and he doubted that I would actually wear it so I said to myself, “I’ll show him!” lol…Jae is the jack of all trades and is so well versed in a variety of subjects and trades but his clothing line, Modern Hippie Apparel is true to the essence of who he is. He is the epitome of cool, chill and relaxed but at the same time, always aware of what’s going on around him and makes sure to educate whether people want to know or not! I am very proud of him and everything that he’s doing so make sure you check him out at @mr_international_bmore to find out more about Modern Hippie Apparel and how to purchase…Jae, I just wanted to say I told you that I was gonna wear it lol but I am so proud of you and admire your hustle and determination and I look forward to seeing what lies ahead for you. Love ya!

Make sure you stay tuned for tomorrow’s post where I will be highlighting 3 more businesses! Thanks to everyone who has supported me during my hiatus because the words of encouragement and motivation meant more to me than you will ever know! Until tomorrow always make sure to love and live Luxuriously!
