Love Yourself First

Love Yourself First

Here at Acacia & K we do not get caught up in the month of Love so you may not see a lot of romantic gestures from us this season. It's fine, you can always sue us (errr that is a joke).

Seriously though, we do have a thought to share and that is, the ability to love someone else be it in the month of February or any other day in which you can wake up, starts with you.

Love yourself first and you may find it in you to love someone else.

Clay pots keep water cool as low as 10degrees and lower in cooler climates. Who needs a fridge when mother nature keeps it cool.

The plan to summit mount kenya seemed simple enough in theory but once you start the journey, you realize there is more to it than expected. One big omission is the altitude sickness. No matter how fit you may be, altitude sickness does not care. You have to find the inner strength to go on even when your body says otherwise.

Climbing a mountain is about perseverance, loving nature and the deep feeling of achieving that which a few have achieved. The world is big and beautiful. Pack a bag today and see the world.

Girl into Womanhood Passage Rites of The Miene Tribe In Gabon

Girl into Womanhood Passage Rites of The Miene Tribe In Gabon

Africa is rich with cultures and tribes. One rite which seem to be common across all tribes regardless of country is the passage rite into adulthood. We were lucky to get this image with an insight into the process.

There is an initial ceremony of sorts which involves dancing and incantations (we have no clue what was said) . After which the girls are taken into the forest for a number of days by designated elder women, who teach them how to take care of a man in every way. We are not sure if this a skill required towards our goal for women empowerment :-). Though that said, myth has it, if a man is to come across a girl/woman in the forest during her passage rite, she is to make love to him until he dies. We are scratching our head on that one. Female empowerment on a different scale?

We do not know if these are tall tales but it all makes out for a rich culture which has been around for years.

Beauty of Africa. You never know what you might find at each turn.

 

A Female Partner Is Not A Property

A Female Partner Is Not A Property
According to womensaid, on average 2women are killed by their partner or ex every week in England and Wales. In Africa it is thought to be higher but data collection is poor. We at Acacia & K put out this tee as our way of saying no to violence against women.

Buy one and take a stance with us.
