Kerryanne Croft of the Vitamin M box says trying to fit in is boring, create the change you want to see.
What’s the Vitamin M box?
Based in New Jersey, Kerryanne saw a lack of support and love for Black owned businesses. She wanted to change that, so The Vitamin M Subscription Box was born. M is for Melanin, the dark brown to black pigment occurring in our skin.
Vitamin M isn’t just a subscription box. It is a movement to not only support these substantial businesses, but to help build their communities and share their stories. The Vitamin M box delivers brands in the form of beauty, fashion, books, home and lifestyle produced by people of colour to your doorstep.
Every 3rd month, Kerryanne donates 10% of the proceeds to a charity/non-profit in the Black and Brown community.
Kerry believes we need to continue to highlight these entrepreneurs over businesses that don’t see or respect their shine.
GW Art is a part of the Vitamin M box for December and the boxes are sold out!
What’s in it from GW Art?

The stars rocked it on the Red Carpet for the Oscars last night. Both the Ladies and the Men did quite well, but of course there were a few fashion disasters.
White and Nudes were popular for the night.
Gina Rodriguez’s dress and how she wore it is what the Oscars are all about! Plunged neckline, sleek ponytail and a dress that dazzled in the right way for her to present under the lights on the Oscars stage.
Best Dressed Nominee
Nude gone Wrong – Phoebe Waller-Bridge
Nobody should ever go on the Red Carpet with what looks like Chicken pox!
A few stars wore black, but hardly any of them got it right. Who let St. Vincent out of her bat cave?
Black gone Wrong
Black gone Wrong or Right?
I am on the fence for Taraji P. Henson in Vera Wang. This is a woman I love to see on the Red carpet. This dress on anyone else would make the Black gone wrong list, but Taraji wears the dress, the dress doesn’t wear her.
I love Viola Davis, but I don’t think she was Pretty in Pink yesterday. I don’t think the Yellow worked out for Greta Gerwig either. But Betty Gabriel, the help from ‘Get out’ rocked her colourful dress. She looked beautiful.
Stars who usually get it right!
Sandra Bullock who was in Louis Vuitton, Lupita Nyong’o who actually looked like an Oscar in Versace and Octavia Spencer are usually a pleasure to see. Well done ladies!
Other Well Dressed Ladies
Let’s not forget the Men! It seems like Common can do no wrong on the Red Carpet. No surprises either for Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman. Martin McDonagh looked sleek in All Black Burberry. Young, Timothée Chalamet was a Best Dressed Nominee for me in All White. Jordan Peele, writer and Director of ‘Get Out’ had a big night. He was the first Black male to win Best Original Screenplay.
Well Dressed Men
Worst Dressed Men
Of course there were a few fashion disappointments for the men. Adam Rippon was dressed for the wrong kind of party and Darrel Britt-Gibson looked like a Pink Panther.
Worst Dressed Ladies
For the ladies, Whoopi we love you but you looked like a peacock about to take flight. Others looked like they were draped, literally like curtains. Salma Hayak added chandelier. Emma Stone looked as if she was going to a Pajama party and Bianca Blanco looked nice but I don’t think the dress was appropriate for the Oscars as it left little for the imagination.
THE Worst Dressed Lady
Where was Haley Bennett going?! The Oscars are not in Hawaii.
Best Dressed Male
For Suga, Best Dressed Male hands-down went to Armie Hammer in Armani. He rocked his red velvet from head to toe. Bravo!
Best Dressed Ladies
Other than Gina Rodriguez mentioned earlier, these ladies were Best Dressed Nominees! Hard to choose a winner. Jane Fonda was stunning in 44 Francois Premier. Mary J. Blige who acted in Mudbound looked absolutely chic in Versace. Allison Janney who played the Mother in ‘Get Out’ was the best Lady in Red. Nicole Kidman was fabulous in Armani Privé and definitely the Best in Blue.
See you next year!

Horrendous to say the least. Suga still can’t declare a Best Dressed or even narrow down the Worst Dressed. There were so many violations of Fashion.
Joan Rivers is rolling over in her grave and Fashion Police on E! is going to have a field day later.
Well if you missed it, here you go!
What were they thinking?! There are a lot of featherless birds out there.
The Men were not much better either. Will Smith, please help your son.
Two did not make one for those that came in pairs. It was obvious Kim K didn’t even finish drying her hair. Blue Ivy looked cute but was spending 11k on that dress really necessary? I’m sure similar could be found in a costume store.
Although Nicki could hardly walk in her dress and I’m still not sure about Cassie, thanks to the ladies who did something right!
Congratulations to the lady of the night, Rihanna, whose last look was beautiful. I’m sure it wasn’t just me who thought Drake was going to propose while he presented the VMAs Vanguard award to her last night, proclaiming he has been in love with Rihanna from he was 22. Great speech.
