Let’s hear it for the girls. Women in South Florida are leading the Nation in small business growth and aren’t slowing down anytime soon. Between the fierce support systems, the willingness to go all in on their ideas, and basically being creative geniuses, women business owners just rule. Fact.

It’s likely that you’ve supported a handful of women owned businesses in the recent past, but we’re here to help you swipe your card with intention. This Small Business Saturday and every other day, consider shopping with some of these boss babes who are blessing Miami and beyond with all their goods, services and special talents.

Mahina.Bikini– Living in The Sunshine State means you can never own enough swimwear. Just ask Marissa Lew, founder and CEO of Mahinas Bikinis who created her brand to fit and flatter every body and we’re all about that life. Visit her online store all weekend long and shop ridiculously marked down bikini pieces from $20-$40. We’ll see you at the beach, babes!

Santuario Miami– If you’re not up for a solid workout by now, you probably didn’t eat enough this Thanksgiving. Luckily for us, Jenny Sanchez of Santuario Miami caters to all types of yogis at her Little River Studio through her hot yoga and HIIT classes. Leave your phone in the car, come sweat it out, laugh hard, and make meaningful connections amongst friends 7 days a week. New students pay just $69 their first month and don’t forget to ask her about retreating to Patagonia (like the place, not the sweater) this Spring.
