Happy Friday, Style Mavens! This week’s Top Five Friday’s is dedicated to a woman with a very inspiring story complemented by her love for a career in the Beauty Industry. In 2011, Cashmere Nicole founded Beauty Bakerie, a vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and smudge-free beauty line while being a nurse and wanting more for her daughter. She gave herself five years to make her dream come true.

After a 4+ year battle with Cancer, sampling her products, and working a full-time job – Cashmere Nicole”s dream finally came true. It’s almost like it was overnight, it seems. Even after receiving recognition from Beyoncé in regards to her campaign Broken Boobs, a Breast Cancer Awareness and Fundraiser. Cashmere Nicole still didn’t see her full results, but of course, she didn’t stop there. In an interview with Refinery29, she stated that she took a two-month break from the business to revamp her hustle energy and she was back at it – You can never keep a Black woman with drive. Thus, making Beauty Bakerie into the powerhouse brand it is today! Sometimes when we think our journey is over, it has just begun. Let’s get into these products, shall we?
