The gift giving season is here! This is the time of year when we all shop 'til we drop in search of the perfect gifts for family and friends. My feelings this holiday season have been different from past seasons. I watched a woman make history by being the first Democratic Predidential Candidate. With over 40 years of experience, she still had to fight hard to prove herself. I then felt the emotions of her loss. I was not disappointed in her. I was disappointed to see that in at the highest levels, a qualified and tenured woman can lose to an under qualified man. The outcome of this election has inspired me to to be proactive! To support other women just as fiercely as I support(ed) Hilary Clinton.
This year I chose to showcase products and businesses I love. ALL founded by women! Not only is it important to support women, it is also valuable to our communities to champion small businesses! Remember, purchasing from small businesses like these, is an investment in someones dream!
From clothing to home decor to cosmetics, I've got you covered! I've linked some of my favorite Girl Boss businesses for your holiday purchasing pleasure! Keep you credit cards handy *wink wink*
