Brrrrr, Octoberrrr...

As we go into the fall season, it's hard not to think about food, Thanksgiving and Christmas already. Fall is a fantastic time of year that we have to savor while we can. This month's collection helps you ease into the last quarter of the year with some great Black-owned businesses to talk about with family and friends.

Inside the Box is your look at our curated collection for the month. You'll get to learn a little more about our thoughts, selection process, and featured businesses.

As always, make sure to share your unboxing photos and videos by tagging #myOCTOBERblackbox. We love sharing what you've discovered.

october blackbox included:

Hair Yum - Blueberry Deep Conditioner: Hair Yum provides a whole collection of goodness to maintain a healthy mane. We were excited to feature the Blueberry Deep Conditioner, especially during the summertime when protective styles are crucial; plus it leaves the hair smelling great! There is a nice variety of hair essentials by Hair Yum which include cleansers, moisturizers, conditioners, oils, vitamins and hair extensions.

Sweet Tamarind - Jaz Face Pendant: The collection from Sweet Tamarind is truly wearable art. Owner Tiffany's collection of handcrafted necklaces, bracelets and earrings where fun to choose from for this month's blackbox. The Jaz Face Pendant was a unique find that we wanted to share with our subscribers. Sweet Tamarind is also our first Black-owned business that we have featured outside of the US, located in Toronto, Canada!

K Milan - Signature Bath Bomb: Chanel, owner of K Milan, fell in love with the beauty industry at a young age. She now offers an exciting mix of products for her line including soaps, body butters, scrubs, lotions, facial products, candles and more! We chose the Signature Bath Bomb because everyone should pamper themselves with a nice, hot bath to relax and rejuvenate. The Signature Bath Bomb is a detoxing mix of oils and salts that will have you wanting to indulge frequently.

Aims Moon Paperie - Be Collection Card: We wanted to feature a simple, yet uplifting card in the August blackbox as a reminder that we deserve to BE. The Be Collection Card crafted by Amy, owner of Aims Moon Paperie, is great to include with a gift, as a thank you card, or as a reminder to the recipient to be the best they can be. Because the card is blank inside, we are happy to know our subscribers can insert their own personal message to whoever is lucky enough to receive. Aims Moon Paperie offers a variety of handcrafted greeting cards, perfect for multiple occasions.
