Last week I spent two days in Kumasi, the Ashanti Region in Ghana, to visit family. We’re just ending the rainy season in Ghana so the weather is really cool and breezy.
Besides catching up with family members, one of my favorite things to do in Kumasi is to go to the market. The last picture is a shot of George (my mother) in Kejetia Market. We picked up some groceries as well as some small souvenirs for family and friends. Markets in Ghana (and other developing countries) are very different from those in the America. In Kejetia, you can find anything from baby wipes to black market currency exchanges. It is really a one stop shop; think flea-market style Walmart on steroids.
I’ll most likely add more pictures to this post when I return to the states. In the meantime, enjoy!
So it’s been awhile…. Sorry for my absence! I was in London for 5 days, and now I’m in Ghana. I’ll be back soon. Been spending time with family, enjoying my beautiful house (moving to Ghana doesn’t sound like a bad idea), and taking pictures, as you can imagine…
So many new posts coming! Miss you all! Be blessed!
I take way too many serious shots! So I decided to live a little with this post. I know the overalls trend is soaring right now, especially skirt and short ones. I didn’t think I’d ever participate until I saw one on sale at Zara. With this outfit, I figured a cropped collared shirt would take less attention to the overalls and compliment the shirt. I completed the look with white strappy heels that I scored for $7 last season and statement earrings.

You know that feeling you get when you find something really old in storage that you never really cared for, but now all of a sudden have a new found love for? Yeah, that happened with this jumper. I bought this French Connection piece last summer simply because it was on sale for like $10 at TJ Maxx/Marshall’s/Ross (I really can’t remember which one). I’m accepting the fact that I can be a label whore fiend; and I think that’s another reason why I bought it. (My logic: How often do you see FCUK for $10?) Off the shoulder tops are big this season so I figured I’d show a little collar bone 🙂 The good Lord is the only One who knows what I was thinking when I bought this clutch from Marshalls 10 years ago. Yes, 10 years ago! Clearly I was ahead of my time, lol.These Sergio Rossi heels were one of those purchases where you don’t look at the price until the sales associate tells you what it is. I saw it on clearance in Nordstrom Rack; one left in my size. And I ran. I ran so fast to checkout.
