Starting today and going forwards on my Friday ‘Weekend Reading’ posts, I will be highlighting different local black business owners, authors and interesting reads that may add value to the black community, so please stay tuned for these weekly posts. I hope to continue to consciously incorporate more diversity and inclusion into my day to day content.
With Father’s Day quickly approaching (and in my case, my dad’s birthday as well), it’s probably about time to start brainstorming gift & brunch ideas for next weekend:
For brunch, I can’t recommend KASpace Cafe enough (cover photo above)! They are a black owned cafe in the East end that make the best matcha lattes & nutella crepes. I started visiting them back in January and have been back almost every weekend. KASpace also offers market boxes available for pick up or delivery on weekends.
For gifts, I’ve curated a Father’s day gift guide below but you can also visit my shop as well. I include everything I link on my blog in my shop. One of the happiest gifts my dad has received in 2020 is this. This is a must buy especially if your dad loves watching YouTube or streaming Netflix. It honestly just makes life so much easier.
You can stream select movies by black filmmakers here now
This is a guide for supporting the grieving black community for non-black people
I’ve been eyeing this loungewear set since quarantine started and its FINALLY on sale! It’s one of those loungewear sets that you know will be super comfy and feel like a constant hug.
I recently re-watched the entire 6 seasons of Gossip Girl on Netflix and had no idea that this is how much Blake Lively made per episode!
