Hey! It’s Adjpants, your Fierceness and Slayage Correspondent, coming to you live from Accra, Ghana. I wanted to give you an update on my adventure so far. Hoooo my garsh- moving “home” when you’re essentially a foreigner in your own country is NOT EASY. It’s been a stressful couple of weeks. After two days holed up … Continue reading Accra Update: Two Weeks In…
My dearest loves. It’s been a while since my last post, and I’m sorry I’ve left you for so long without providing some sort of foolishness or tea-spilling. Why have I been absent?

“Mummy, why come my hair isn’t soft like yours?” I drop the comb into my lap and sigh. “It’s HOW come, baby. How come.” She shuffles round to look up at me from her spot on the floor, and my breath catches in my throat. Every time I look at her I see her father. … Continue reading Untamed
