Better Together: Community as Self-Care with Christina Brown

podcast December 9, 2021 4

share close

Self-care is the daily practice of nurturing yourself. Because we’re naturally social creatures, self-care also involves being part of an authentic community that is truly invested in your wellbeing. Community is a vital part of our self-care.

Guest Spotlight

Christina Brown is the founder and Chief Curator of the BabyBrownSugar brand and community. For over a decade, she’s been a champion for women’s empowerment and inclusivity.

In 2009, she created the award-winning blog, LoveBrownSugar to encourage self-love and style inclusivity for women of color. It wasn’t until she was pregnant with her daughter in 2013 that she noticed the lack of online spaces that celebrated moms of color like her. As a response, she launched BabyBrownSugar to celebrate the magic of multicultural moms. With Christina’s background as a digital community curator, she knows first-hand the importance of cultivating digital spaces for marginalized groups.

This episode mainly focuses on the power of community and how having a community is an important part of our self-care practice. We also talked about how she grounds herself as a busy mom and business owner, her upcoming product launch (which I’m geeked about!), and so much more.
