inside the box: February 2018

this month is all about love

The month of February is Black History Month and also a very commercialized time for Valentine's Day. As we get swept up in expressing our love to everyone during this time, it is important to remember there's no greater love than self-love. We provide our best love to others when we love and take care of ourselves.

Inside the Box is your look at our curated collection for the month. You'll 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 #myFEB18blackbox. We love sharing your discovery experience!
