This isn't a simple sugar-apple. Well, actually it is but while it was being eaten something else hit me. I learnt so many things while traveling in Africa that I'm afraid I won't be able to write all them down, to correctly absorb them and let them settle inside.
I payed for this single sugar-apple exactly the same amount I'd pay for a whole meal on a roadside stall that sometimes is enough for both of us. I shaked when I heard the price and then I thought to myself:

i payed for this single sugar-apple exactly the same amount i'd pay for a whole meal on a roadside stall that sometimes is enough for both of us. i shaked when i heard the price and then i thought to myself: "anything to get nando healthier and smiling". and i bought two with a small discount. sometimes it's hard to realise we're able to afford these thoughts - and go forward with the subsequent act - knowing the great majority of africans can't even give themselves the luxury of free thought. let alone having the means to "simple" treats. their health and access to healthy food, which should be a human right - as everything else - is in god's hands.

Regrann from @hamamatafricanbeauty -  Hi there, Kings and Queens!
.
.
We get this question often: What is the difference between your Golden and Safari Shea Butter? 
For those that maybe don’t know how our jars of butter are made, we decided to share this quick video.
.
.

Similar to our Golden, to make our Yellow Shea Butter, we follow these steps:
.
.

1. Freshly picked Shea tree nuts.
.
.

2. First washed, dried and then roasted.
.
.

3. A process of grinding, kneading and boiling.
.
.

Once they have been boiled for hours, the oil comes out. That oil has to then settle and be stirred until it turns into Shea Butter.
.
.

What makes our Safari different are the ingredients, #KingsandQueens. 
It’s made with a mixture of tea tree oil and indigenous West African Herbs which are added to the Butter in the process. The West African Herbs is what gives our Safari the yellow color and healing properties. .
.

It’s important to remember that due to the change in seasonal weather, the color and scents may change. However, it’s power to heal and moisturize remains the same. We package each jar with LOVE and ship to you DIRECTLY from Ghana, West Africa!
.
.

It’s important to know how your skincare products are made and with what ingredients. A lot of the skin care concerns you have can be addressed by simply switching to a natural, raw product like ours! Want to know more about Shea Butter or any of our products? Kindly send us a DM and a representative will be happy to serve you. .

Bi-annually during West Africa’s dry season, the International Festival of Masks and the Arts (FESTIMA) is held in Dédougou, Burkina Faso, and hundreds of traditional masks from six countries (Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Togo, Senegal, and the host country) take center stage. Over the course of the week-long event, traditional music and dance are believed to transform the mask wearer into a spirit, enabling him to communicate with ancestors, and in 2014, French photographer @martingros was on hand to capture the dizzying performance. Crafted out of straw, leaves, wood, and textile, the masks play an important role during tribal rites ceremonies, such as birth, death, and coming of age.

Regrann from @hamamatafricanbeauty -  Hi there Kings and Queens,
.
.
At Hamamat African Beauty we are all about embracing our natural beauty and using raw, natural and pure skincare products to do so.
.
.
In traditional Africa, beauty regiments are an important part of daily life. Today, let’s visit the small market town of Turmi in the Omo Valley, south west of Ethiopia.
.
.
The women of the Turmi community are widely known for their natural beauty.They have preserved their traditions and are so close to mother earth. As a very traditional community, they use a form of clay known as Ochre as their natural skin care routine for both their skin and hair.
.
.
They bathe in pride with flawless features and Ochre dyed hair. This community values beauty and to them it’s a sign of elegance, strength and unforgettable beauty.
.
.
The women of the Turmi community use the age old natural beauty of clay for body treatments, as a face mask and even as a soap replacement. The clay makes their skin softer and more refined, and they use it for their hair as a natural hair dye.
.
.
We would love to know which natural skincare routines you use daily . Either a day or night routine, that leaves your skin feeling fresh,healthy and radiant.
.
.
Our #Shea butter is one skincare routine you can use. Our #Safari Shea butter works well during the day and at nighttime it’s best to use our #Golden Shea butter for soothing and freeing effects on your skin.
.
.
Our #Shea butter is now available for purchase. Get yours today and enjoy the offers and packages we have just for you.

The gift of giving of giving is one of the easiest and most rewarding things we can do. 
Last year we packed 120 old shoeboxes with useful and educational items and shipped them over to The Gambia.
We surprised every child at Erenjang Nursery School with there very own Christmas shoebox. 
The reaction was overwhelming, the amount of joy it brought to those who have never received a gift on Christmas day. Things that we so easily take for take for granted. 
So what if we didn't buy buy buy and fill the world with even more crap? 
What if we recycled our unused but still useful things to those who don't have a lot? 
We're on a mission to send 120 shoeboxes this year and we need your help to make it happen. 
Shoeboxes must be in by October 15th to reach The Gambia by Christmas. 
If you want to be involved please spread your wealth and the love and follow 3 steps... 👉 Collect your items! reuse / recycle your unused but useful items rather than buy new - books, pens, crayons, toys, underwear (new), toothbrush (new), clothes, sweets. 🎁 Find an old shoebox or similar box 💌 Drop off at our City Centre location - Social Chain, 127 Portland Street, M1 4PZ 
Follow our project @erenjangproject and see where your shoebox ends up. 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱 #donate #giftofgiving #charity #nonprofit #charity #giveback #love #socialgood #instagood #fundraising #westafrica #helpothers #selflessness #lifeofaphotographer #care #christmas
