International Women's Day - Female owned businesses you need to know!!
Today is international women's day and I wanted to do something to showcase all of the amazing female talent I see on my social media because there is SO MUCH!! Although I myself am a female owned small business, girls supporting other girls is one of the main priorities of my business so, for today's blog I'm going to share some of the amazing female owned businesses that I think you need to know/follow.
I asked on my instagram earlier this week for you to send me some female owned businesses that you love, so I will be featuring them alongside the ones I personally follow and love!! Through this process I found so many more TALENTED girrrrls. It is crazy to me how many creatives are out there and that are so amazing at what they do. As a creative myself, I know it is hard to get exposure - ESPECIALLY WITH TODAYS ALGORITHMS, so wherever I can boost more small/independent businesses I damn will.
(clicking on the name of the brand will take you to their instagram)
@LAURENTATEOFFICIAL , @DELILAHBONOFFICIAL - It is only right to start off this blog of inspirational female owned businesses with my big sister. Ironically it is her birthday today, of course a boss ass bitch would be born on international women's day- HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUEEN. She credits herself as a singer and front woman of @HANDSOFFGRETEL but she is also a producer, videographer, graphic designer, director, illustrator... the list goes on. She is the most hard working person I know and she inspires me everyday to strive for what I want in life. She deserves the world and more. She also has a new music video coming out today - check that out HERE

That was only a portion of the AMAZING female businesses I reached out to for this short blog. Please make sure to show love to every single one of them. As an small business owner, I know and can appreciate just how much work goes behind every single one of these businesses and also know how hard it is for creatives to get the exposure they deserve so hopefully this will help you discover some new businesses to support.
