Some of Ashanti Ameyaw's favourite things..
There is a picture of Ashanti holding up a t-shirt that says, 'When I'm in the place its party time' and she's so right. Because as you can see from the photographs above, -this social butterfly knows her stuff. Whether she's wearing a cute dress by N'yka Designs, a leggins and vest combo -or an uber glamorous body con dress, -Ashanti is aways 'hot to trot'. A big fan of N'yka Designs, the first three pictures [featuring Ashanti] -are all N'yka Designs by Sheila Boateng. I especially love this cute yellow and green dress.
Kiki Clothing is a new discovery for me. I'm loving this gorgeous multi print dress with a bell sleeve details, -and this oh so cute blue dress. Kiki Clothing is designed by Titi Ademola, -another one of Ashanti's favourite labels- http://www.kikiclothing.com.
Ashanti uses Iman foundation and make-up [a brand that gives flawless coverage] -and their 'IMAN Cream to Powder Foundation' glides onto your skin -like sheer silk to give the coverage of cream combined with a velvety powder finish -and provides a medium to maximum coverage (£23.50). I am also loving this 'IMAN Dressed for Success Makeup Kit' (£19.950).Why not order these Iman products online from, Afrotherapy [it was founded by -hair 'Queen' Harriet Kessie] at: www.afrotherapy.com Like other Ghanaian Glitterati [and myself], Ashanti is also a fan of Nivea -and their NIVEA VISAGE Rich Moisturising Day Cream is a rich, fast absorbing formula that gives dry skin all the moisturising and smoothing elements it needs to maintain its natural balance (http://www.nivea.co.uk).
I love discovering new beauty products and 'Chocho' cream -a product loved by Ashanti and made in Ghana is a 'new-one-on-me'. Touted on 'Chocho Industries' website as; "Quick, dependable and sustainable skin restorer" - this effective herbal skin care product appears to have a cult like following in Ghana. And even though Chocho [a 'national treasure'] is available -nationwide in Ghana, -it can only be bought from big Ghanaian retailers in the UK [like 'AKWAABA SUPERMARKET and TRAVEL & TOURS' shop at: 103 Dalston Lane, Dalston, London E8 1NH -020 7249 2777 / 07903 620 541].
