Hi everyone! I hope life is treating you all well. I’ve been pretty good, all the green tea I’ve been having is making me feel alive #organicshade. The last couple of days in Milan have been gorgeous, the sun is out, the skies are blue, I’m … Continue reading The Little White Dress
I usually never really care about trends, but the ones for Spring Summer 2016 have really stood out to me. In this video here I talk about the colours for the year, and in this post I will be talking about another trend- the It accessory. … Continue reading Accessorizin’
From previous posts, some of you might know that Urban Outfitters is my favourite place to shop, just because nobody does formless and oversized and tattered like they do- and that’s exactly the kind of clothing I love. Since I’ve been here, however, I’ve had … Continue reading THIS DRESS
*Because I miss doing this, this blog will also be dedicated to my early morning thoughts and occasionally planned writings. Brace yourselves, they’re not always cute.*
All my life, I’ve had this fantasy of being someone’s muse. It’s probably why I’ve only ever loved troubled artists. The people I’ve cared most deeply about have always had some creative outlet I hoped to influence. Music, poetry, film…
It comes from a need to immortalize myself. Life is so fleeting, so short, so….insignificant in the grand scheme of things, or at least most times it feels that way, that I just want to make sure I live forever and what better way to do it than through art?
Why are we here and what is the point when we find out? Are we just living happy lives in Accra, going to concerts, meeting amazing people, traveling to Amsterdam on a whim to see Nneka (EasyJet, please hook me up) while on the other side of the world, or even two streets down from us people die, never to be remembered, sometimes even unnamed?
Are we just going through motions, performing the art of a conditioned reality, doing our duty to our family, being good to our friends, ruining our love lives and telling ourselves it doesn’t matter, hoping to find someone to grow old with but never really admitting it, finding ways to express ourselves that feel true, making up scandalous tweets so the RTs make us feel like our voice can be made out in the sea of other people crying and hungering to be heard?
In an almost unhealthy way, I’m obsessed with immortality. You know how the boy in the Fault in Our Stars wants to be remembered? That’s how I feel. And most days I’m so paralyzed by the fear of never meaning anything that I can’t do anything, which of course is counter intuitive, but I’m human. Look at my imperfections in awe.
I want to live forever. Not just be a humble girl from Akyem Tafo with the most incredible mother on the planet, I love you so much Ma, who saw some of the world and only kept getting more and more confused as time went on.
I want to live forever.
Hello everyone I’ve been feeling so good lately. Why is that something to report? Because a year ago I wasn’t doing so great. I’ve talked about that before so I won’t go into it here. The feeling of perpetual happiness I’ve had this semester … Continue reading Life Update 1
Hey guys! It’s been a rather long minute, as usual. I will try to do better, honest. I haven’t posted anything in a while but I have been working on finding a photographer here. I thought I had landed one, but it just fell through- … Continue reading New Buys : Shoes
Hey guys! I’ve been seeing a lot of date night look books and makeup tutorials, and although I am single as a loaf of bread I thought I would do my own spin on it. I have two looks, one for warmer weather and the … Continue reading Date Night inspired
‘For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.’ Hey Everyone! I hope you’re all doing really well. It’s the end of the first month of the new year already. Crazy, I know. I recently went on a day trip to Genova, and … Continue reading Genova and Clean Lines
Hey guys It’s a really beautiful day out today, and I had planned on going somewhere but I decided, sort of at the last minute, to do this post and walk around Milan a bit instead. As I mentioned in my last style post, black … Continue reading How To : Monochrome
I wasn’t going to do this post until I realized I hadn’t been sleeping well because I was ashy. Let me explain. I have dry skin; my body is properly dry, but my face is dry to combination. It’s a little odd because my face … Continue reading Winter Skincare
