Self Isolation, Wellness & Me..

During all of this self isolation, wellness has become more important than ever. Taking care of yourself, mentally & physically is crucial. To keep my mind out of what I call “the dark place” I’ve been constantly working out, morning, noon & night. If you follow me on the gram you already know, lol.

Ankara Fashion

Fashion has always been a love of mine & I’m finally branching out to share some of my favourite styles, trends & shopping tips here on the blog! Ankara fashion caught my eye a few years ago, around 2016 when I wrote my post on Jumbo Senegalese Twists almost exactly 2 years ago! Back then I had just gotten my hands on my first piece of African print clothing, a swimsuit, from Andrea Iyamah. Since then, I’ve fallen in love with Ankara fashion & I follow countless designers on social media to feel my obsession daily! My favourites are those that…
