Amazon Prime Day, October 13-14 is around the corner. With the holidays coming up and social distancing being what it is, we already know that instead of clamoring into the stores, you’re going to be behind the safety and comfort of your computer screen snagging the best deals to be found online. Good luck and Godspeed.

This year there has been a push-nationwide to start investing in Black owned businesses. Over at MadameNoire, we’ve been about that life but it’s never the wrong time to do the right thing. While shopping on Amazon, if you’d like to patronize some Black owned businesses in the process, we have some options you might want to explore below.

Check them out.

Vegan Soulfood Cookbook

Vegan Soul Food Cookbook, $14.39

These days it’s important that we keep our bodies (and our minds) in great health. Food goes a long way in accomplishing both of those goals. If you know all about veganism or want to try something new with the increased time you’re spending in the kitchen, the Vegan Soul Food Cookbook by Nadira Jenkins-El might be a great help on your journey.

I would argue that the biggest thing holding most people back from vegan food is the fact that feel it won’t be as tasty as the meat and animal products we’re used to.

Majesty Hair Care Royal Package, $40.00

We’ve talked about Majesty Hair Care here before. Created by a Black stylist, Angela Constable, along with the help of chemist, Majesty Hair Care prides itself on being a line that caters to 4C hair, a market often overlooked or completely abandoned in the natural hair movement.

Majesty specializes in restoring moisture to the hair with natural ingredients like avocado, coconut oil, and the noni fruit.

As someone who used this product line in the styling of my wedding hair, I can vouch for it.

Darlyng and Co. Diaper Bag, $69.00

Being a mother does not mean sacrificing your personal style. And if you’re a mom on the move, you don’t want your diaper bag holding you down or making you look frumpy and unfashionable. Thankfully, Darlyng and Co., a Black-owned company specializing in baby products.

This bag is a bit deceiving from the outside.

It has compartments for days and the ability to carry your diapers, wipes, snacks, and your laptop comfortably. The bag, made a durable vegan leather, can be worn in three different ways: backpack, cross-body or shoulder bag.
