BLACK MINIMALISTS ON THE WEB: PART TWO
Just in time for #BHM, I'm back with another edition of Black Minimalists on the Web. It makes me happy and excited to find more and more black creatives who are minimalists and share them with you. The community is continuously growing.
Please check out and support the black minimalists below by visiting, subscribing, and encouraging them on their journeys as they inspire you.
Disclaimer: The creatives listed below, may or may not personally identify as minimalist; however, they were chosen because their content speaks to a minimalist lifestyle.
“Because black girls are more than two thumbs up and a smile.” Self-described “creative minimalist”, Neosha Gardner is the founder of CreateHER Stock, a stock image company catering to black women creatives and owner and designer at HUN Creative, a brand design studio.
“My simple, complicated life.” Meet Yvonne Wallace, life and career coach residing in Washington, DC. Yvonne’s mission is to “help make people wealthy, mentally and physically, from the inside out.” Her blog focuses on adding more simplicity into your life.

Owner of design studio, Orange Custard and visual artist, Nikki Terry states she was born a minimalist and inspired by her father's style growing up. Native Marylander (woop woop) by way of Baltimore and currently a Brooklyn resident (where Brooklyn at?), Nikki also pursues photography. Nikki’s goal as an artist is to recreate the world how she see’s it and minimalism helps facilitate that process.
"All class with a little sass." Carefree and magical, blogger Cicely is living the simple life and recently moved across the country to Dallas for a fresh start. Her lifestyle blog covers a variety of topics from blogging + business, relationships, food + wine, and of course, her minimalist journey.
“To travel is to transform.” I found Nneka through an article she wrote on For Harriet about why black women should embrace minimalism. Nneka is a writer, coach, and avid traveler who lived in Spain for nine months (hence the paella). She currently resides in Atlanta and muses about life and traveling on her blog.
Honor what feels right to you. Take great care of yourself. Use your intuition to guide you through it all. I promise you'll be better off.— Nneka M. Okona (@afrosypaella) February 6, 2016
