A Beauty Minute with Akua

Morning: I wash my face with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser with my Vanity Planet facial brush and for my moisturizer I use Alba Botanica Hawaiian Moisture Cream. I’ll only use makeup for a shoot or if I’m going out. If I do wear it, it’s usually Sephora concealer and powder, Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder in the color Lit, and NYX Dewy Setting Spray, plus mascara

I’ve always had a kind of boyish side when it comes to household chores. You know, I’m the messiest, least organized person on the planet, and plus, I’m way too important of a person to pick up after myself.

And of course, I figured out pretty quickly that if I skipped buying a pair of shoes, I could pay for a house cleaner, and my life is forever changed. It’s such a luxury for me.

There’s nothing better.

Julia Sherman’s Salad for President

On the contrary, and I am a big believer in this, salads can be hearty, wholesome, and highly nourishing for many! Julia Sherman knows this, and not only is she interested in the nutritional appeal of a salad, but also the artistic.

I was immediately drawn to Christiane Spangsberg’s work. Maybe it’s the simplicity of her oddly intimate single line faces, or the hues of rich blue that feel as deep as the sea that first attracted me. Whatever...
