A weekend of fashion, charity and a walk down memory lane

Hey Guys,

I have had a really fun but busy week!

The Black Stars played Zambia on Saturday in the World Cup qualifier but unfortunately lost 1-0. It was such a shame because the entire team played really well. I still say well done to my amazing husband and the rest of the Black Stars team and better luck next time!!!

I attended the launch of two up and coming Ghanaian designers MO SAIQUE (shoes) and JOANSU (jewelry) at one of the hippest boutiques in Accra on Saturday afternoon. I really loved their unique pieces with its African inspiration and I can’t wait to own a few of their designs. Later on in the day, I accompanied my mom to show our support at a fundraiser to help raise funds for the Bomase Siblino School in the Krobo region of Ghana. I turned out to be the highest bidder on the cake auction bidding 1,3000 Ghanaian Cedis. My nieces and nephews were very pleased when they saw the cake, but most importantly it was for an amazing cause with its proceeds going towards supporting the futures of young people!

I had a lovely evening out with Miss Universe on her visit to Ghana on Sunday evening. She has a great chance to be a great role model and do some good as with her new role. As part of her reign, she gets to pick a charity to support and she has chosen to raise money for SOS Children across Africa. The current Miss Universe Ghana and other former title holders were all in attendance so it was a real walk down memory lane for me!

As you will also have seen, last week I was announced as the new face of top Ghana fabric house Printex. I’m so excited about my new role and will update you on my plans very soon I promise!

Hope you all had a super weekend too.

Love Menaye xxx
