Black Love & Buttah Babez: Beauty Bae

I try to support small business. Especially when they’re owned by snazzy young black female entrepreneurs. Especially in the face of massive consumerism and ritual holiday competition.

My get-ready ritual is a science. It differs slightly depending on the season and occasion, but by now it’s muscle memory. So when I add a new product, and like it, It becomes canon. I’ve given ButtahBabez a try, and I’m so happy I did!

I discovered this guilt-free, ethically-sourced, homemade beauty boutique on Instagram, and was immediately attracted to the sample sale she was hosting featuribg a new formula; “Black Love”. Samples are my way of avoiding goop-hoarding. Y’all know I’m tryna live free and travel light! ::Points 👆🏾 tagline at top of website::

She was fast and courteous. She spoke to the at-the-time ashy, soon-to-be-classy young 👸🏾in me! In no time she had processed my order and my package was on its way!

The packaging was simple, transparent, and elegant; just like her product!

ButtahBabez did not disappoint!


Like Michelle and Barack. Like Claire Huxtable. Like Oprah’s hair. Like the Three Wisemen Combo: Gold, Frankincense, AND Myrrh!


Smoov like a whale’s belly. Whipped to perfection! Like rubbing Migos’ “Bad and Boujee” on your neck, elbows, and shoulders. I caught sight of myself and caught an attitude at my reflection. How dare I wait so long to try her products!?

But don’t you worry your dry lil’ knuckles!


Check her out on Etsy! She has even more than BUTTAHZ! She’s got masks, and scrubs, and an assortment of products with ingredients you can identify!

Check her out! Tell her I sent you! Probably won’t get you a better price, but maybe it’ll get me a discount!

Roze Goes,

If I love you, I can’t let you be a chalkboard. And I do love you!

When Roze first went in 2012,  it was kind of like a journal ... that other people could read. Embarassing. But I'm realizing that my voice, my experiences, my representation and narrative are valuable. There's room enough for me too. My talents and interests. My time is now. Roze
