Black Girl Sunscreen
We are long past the days where the myth is flying around that Black people don't need SPF and sun protection. When you're traveling, sunscreen is one of the most important items you should pack in your luggage. For our Sagittarius who are always traveling, Black Girl Sunscreen is a sunscreen brand that caters exclusively to women of color. You don't have to worry about a white cast on your deeper skin. Although their collection of SPF products is small, they are mighty.

Mess in a Bottle
Mess in a Bottle "creates MESSages that evoke change, give a voice to the voiceless, and create a community of unapologetically authentic humans." The brand and its products are telling it like it is. If you have something to say, Mess in a Bottle is for you. One of my favorite pieces is the "Mind Your Own Mess" sports bra.
