HAPPY BLACKOUT DAY ‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️ Just because I think this needs to been seen like everywhere!

I’m just so amazed! This is Taylor Pollard, the owner and founder of “TAYLOR MADE PASTRIES” 👏🏾 I went to high school with Taylor and I remember her being so sweet and nice. She always had cookies and sweets with her, I never bothered to ask why. Little did I know she was making these things herself because she’s a pastry chef! She has her own BUSINESS!!!! She’s made pastries for celebrities like Draya Michelle, Karen Civil, Heather Sanders and many more. She’s made pastries for many industry functions! I don’t know about you, but in my opinion this is definitely a black girl who rocks and I will always support her ! Congratulations Taylor! 🍬🍰🍭💸💜🎊🎉👸🏾💁🏽

Suzie Beauty was created by entrepreneur Suzie Wokabi, a US-trained makeup artist who runs her business in Kenya and initially found it hard to source quality makeup for her work. This motivated her to create her own makeup line. She struggled to receive financing for several years, using her home as a laboratory for her makeup collection. But now, her company is worth over $1 million.

Hard work pays off 

It’s so inspiring! #BlackGirlsMagic

'Blackout Day' Promotes Black Beauty While the Fashion and Beauty Industries Catch Up
The selfie movement is a positive online community that fights the lack of black representation in mainstream media.
By Amanda Moore-Karim

“Blackout Day is all about creating a space to promote, encourage and inspire the black community to chase whatever dream [is] desired,” - Marissa Rei

A really great article about visibility and representation for black models and creatives in the Fashion and Beauty Industries and our long term goal of creating a space for people to celebrate and network!
