Slemfit
Emily Newton

In November of 2019, I quit my corporate job to pursue health & fitness coaching full time. 

  • I teach women how to lose stubborn body fat, build muscle, and sustain their results for a lifetime! The world needs women and in order to be successful we must integrate holistic health into our DNA.
  • I teach women how to become more confident, stronger, and emotionally resilient individuals. Confidence is something that I personally have struggled with my entire life. I am more confident than I have ever been in my life right now, and I can’t wait to share my story with other women in hopes of inspiring them.
  • I challenge my clients on more than a physical level. I challenge their integrity, the reputation they have with themselves, and the commitment they make when we begin training!

C.Ross Made
Cierra Ross

scoop deal ~ 15% off for scoop readers with coupon code scoop15 from July 5th – July 20th.

Cierra Ross, Owner and Creator of C.ROSS MADE launched C.ROSS MADE in April of 2020. I know bold move of starting a business in the middle of a global pandemic! Considering everything, I would say my business has totally taken off. I started my business because I simply wanted more. I went to school for fashion merchandise & design at the illustrious school of North Carolina Agriculture & Technical State University. Sadly, I never fully got into the fashion industry in hopes of becoming a fashion buyer. Instead the Lord directed me into the path of becoming a FCS teacher. So during quarantine I had a lot of extra time and decided to finagle around with clay and started designing earrings and the rest was history! C.ROSS MADE offers beautiful handcrafted polymer clay earrings. My earrings express that bold and daring style that I believe ALL women possess somewhere inside. I find inspiration everywhere, especially from my 4 year old daughter. I truly believe every woman can find a style that fits them when they shop C.ROSS MADE.

Captivate
Charity Washington

scoop deal ~ 20% for scoop

I launched Captivate in 2019, a business goal I had in mind for many years as a celebrity stylist. The decision to launch in 2019 coincided with planning around the right time to do so. Prior to Captivate, I spent 10+ years exclusively styling private celebrity clients across the country and as a result lived in several cities. Once I returned to Charlotte for good with my children, I knew it was time to embark on the project that would soon turn into my brick-and-mortar spaces. 

Today Captivate is housed inside of the two most prominent shopping centers in the city of Charlotte. The store attracts locals as it does tourists. Our online website generates global sales and our social media footprint covers a reach of over 90,000 followers. I ensure that my boutiques have something to offer to every woman regardless of size, shape, age or color.

Rucker Roots
Ione and Ellen Rucker

The history of Rucker Roots runs deep as it stems from the Rucker family name and several people in the family who have contributed to the thought behind the brand. From their paternal grandfather’s garden in South Carolina, to their paternal grandmother who was a hair model in Atlanta, GA during the 1930’s, the founders of the brand have had many influences throughout their lives that led to them creating a brand that embraces healthy hair and styling options.
Dating back to the early 1980s, the Rucker sister’s mother used vegetables from the family garden along with oils, mayonnaise, eggs, and avocados to mix up kitchen concoctions to include in their hair regimen. This helped the sisters develop an appreciation for natural hair care products, the value of family and importance of their heritage and strong roots. Later in life when the owners Ellen and Ione became mothers, they desired for their daughters to love and appreciate their natural hair and have the products available to keep their hair healthy. These events lead to them creating Rucker Roots.
Today, Rucker Roots promotes its products using social media and often takes part in trade shows including The Southern Women’s Show in Charlotte, NC. They have received features in several magazine editorials and on local morning TV throughout the Mid-Atlantic. Additionally, the brand was featured in 10,000 Mother’s Day Boxes with ABC’s The View, included on Good Morning America Deals & Steals with Tory Johnson, and recently featured as one of GMA’s Robin Roberts’s go-to products in Instyle Magazine. The brand was first introduced in 2015 on the sister’s reality TV show Love Thy Sister on WeTV.

Heavenly Scent Candle Co.
Antonia Evans

I started my business 8 years ago after taking an Entrepreneurship class as part of my Master’s degree program. I’ve always loved candles. But would be disappointed when they smelled great in the store but I couldn’t smell it while burning at home. So I decided if I was going to start a business it would be based on something I love. I started researching candle making and began experimenting. Then Heavenly Scent was born. My natural soy candles are known for having excellent scent throw. You can smell the fragrance throughout your space and will have hours of pleasant aroma.

blĂĽ nail laquer
keyah Greer

As long as I can recall, I have had a love for painting my nails, over the years I have collected many, many bottles so much so I often give it away to keep my growing collection under control. Keeping my nails polished is an activity which I’ve come to find relaxing.

Starting Blu Nail Laquer has been a dream of mine since my friend Renee spent years raving about the colors and quality of polishes I created for myself. I’m known to wear vibrant, high gloss colors that reflect my personality, but I struggled to find these polishes available in stores. As a middle school science teacher, my inner chemist came out and I turned my kitchen into a laboratory to mix the collection that I’ve wanted to wear.

When I’m not obsessing over pigments, bottle design and all things nail polish, I spend time with my nine-year-old son, and with my sisters of Delta Sigma Theta. We love to explore all Charlotte has to offer!

Toushea Body Boutique
Shanon Kindred

My name is Shanon and I’m the founder and product formulator of Toushea Body Boutique. The name Toushea (pronounced tooshay) pays tribute to shea butter, which is one of my favorite skin delicacies. I created a body butter for my oldest daughter in 2010 when she was a few months old. I had tried several brands of baby lotion to soothe her dry skin and mild eczema and they just weren’t helping. Now she has softer skin and the eczema outbreaks have been reduced. Seeing the positive results on my baby’s skin (and mine), I became passionate about making other skincare products for my family that were as natural as possible. At the urging of family and friends, I began selling my creations in 2014. My products are lovingly handcrafted in small batches to ensure quality. I carefully select fair-trade ingredients and strive to use pure essential oils, organic and/or unrefined ingredients, and natural colorants whenever possible. Any other enhancements used, a fragrance oil for example, are formaldehyde, paraben, and phthalate free. All soaps are palm oil free and most items are also vegan friendly.

Shoppers may enjoy free standard U.S. shipping on all online orders $35+ through August 31st. If you subscribe to our email list here: http://eepurl.com/dL0_86, you’ll also receive a promo code to save 15% off your first online order.

Mud + Sunflowers
Nikki Baldwin

Mud +Sunflowers was built two years ago from my love of gift giving. I was in the middle of a separation and many sleepless nights. One day I decided I wanted to make a bracelet for a friend and it kind of took off from there. I started to add to our product line and slowly but surly we are building up clientele. As a single mom birthing a business from $20 and two kids in tow has not been easy but it has all been so worth it. My prayer is that more people see the impact and how truly amazing it is to shop with small business owners.
