It’s been 3 weeks since The Momference and I am still on cloud nine after experiencing pure black mom magic, and the feeling of belonging and purpose that permeated the day. If you don’t follow me on Instagram then you’re probably wondering, “what the heck is The Momference”?  The Momference™ “is the premiere, one-day conference for motivated, magical moms of color boasting regionally and nationally acclaimed mom influencers, panels, celebrity keynote, workshops, vendors and top-tier, multi-cultural focused products”.

Black Mom Magic was everywhere from the Mom Squad greeters to the purple and gold decorations, and most importantly, the swag bag. The Momference was created to address the trends, needs, and wants of millennial moms of color and the gift bags do just that. It is important for me to note that many of the brands supporting The Momference are black owned and operated businesses (Momference, 2019).

What I love most about the swag is that there’s personal items for us moms, and items to use with the kids. The bag is completely filled and spills over! Below is a round up of the items in my gift bag. I’ve included each brand’s website link and social media if you want to make a purchase. We can support the Momference by tagging and sharing these brands on our social media. Doing so means even better swag for next year and increases the Momference’s brand exposure, thus, incentivizing brands to continue to support moms of color. Alright, soapbox over. Happy shopping!!
