We'reFEATURED!! (1)

The Founder and Editor-in-Chief is Michiel created this site when she became frustrated in wedding planning and finding home decor when she could not locate black vendors in these areas. This site is a space to support black women in the south through using their service or reading about their life and achievements.

A little about Michiel… She is a Black Southern Belle living a DC Life, but will be relocating to SC soon. She loves all things fun, new and exciting. The greatest thing is she in an alum of the best school in the land – HOWARD UNIVERSITY (the REAL HU)!! I had the opportunity to chat with Michael a couple of months ago and she was a joy to speak with and has great aspirations for growing the site. I can’t wait to meet her in person.
