This summer, we are on a journey that takes us across the African continent and beyond. Exploring the joys of travel through the things we love; fashion, food and some fun. There are too many reasons to travel and sometimes we don’t take as much advantage of it as we should.

It’s easy to develop a habit of visiting familiar places, or going to new places without a sense of adventure. To experience a new space, we believe there’s a style to travelling, from budget holidays, to quick city breaks and long haul summer vacations, we are ready to take on the challenge.

For the first edition of Destination Fashion we take a journey to the serene Gold Coast:Accra that leaves us not only refreshed and rejuvenated, but with a new eye to the city that moves to its own beat. Featuring Marie Humbert and Maame Adjei of the hit web series ‘An African City’ and Fashion Stylist/Publicist Afua Rida of House of Cramer, welcome to the ‘Ghana Effect.’    -The Style HQ

5 Natural Hair Illustrators/Artists We Love

Aside from the bloggers, vloggers, natural hairstylists and businesses who are working hard to enlarge and expand the natural hair community worldwide; there are also a group of creative women who are using their unique talents and abilities to encourage others. In a day and age where we are constantly bombarded with so much information that we don’t have time to read it all, these group of women have come up with interesting ways to educate and entertain us. Through the work of these women, a newbie who is struggling to stay encouraged or a veteran who is feeling bored with her hair can be inspired and motivated to keep treading on. (keep reading)

What beautiful ladies.

it has always been difficult for me to make sense of/make peace with the paradox of beauty at home. Ghana. home to the spirits of Yaa Asantewaa and Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah (among others). home of the #BLACKSTARS. the first place to show me the ubiquity of my beauty and the first place to show me the pervasiveness of white supremacy. walk the streets and be called “Ahoofe” (beautiful) by random people. try to gift little girls with Black baby dolls and watch them cry for Oburoni Ba (white baby) instead. Still, I have never bought a white doll. Ever. And I won’t.

It’s crazy how sometimes I have to go back to what I have written to find solace. This is a page from my book “Love in my Language.” Resonates so much for me right now!



I love this
