I Only Used Black-Owned Products For A Week, And Here's What I Bought

Spoiler Alert: It was great.

Hi, hello, my name is Ada and I'm black. 2020 has been A YEAR, I don't have to go into the specifics – we all know what's been happening. But there's been a couple good things that have happened this year.

The best thing to come out of 2020 for me was the beginning of Black Pound Day. I started seeing so many Black-owned British businesses for the first time and I thought: "you know, Ada, let's try and just use them for a week." And here I am.

1. Plantain Cookbook

2. ÁMI London

3. Girls Do Succeed

4. Niche Tea

5. Wild Seed Botanicals

6. Charlotte Mensah

7. Daily Paper

8. Oré Mi Candles

9. The Nude Room

10. Afrocenchix

11. Swimming Pigs Gin

I whole-heartedly back all of these products. Every single one was amazing and I'm so glad I decided to focus on Black-owned products for an entire week. If you want to see me trying out all these products, check out the video below
