Are you ready for the trip of a lifetime?
My Black is Beautiful haircare is turning up its ongoing celebration of Black beauty and culture with a thrilling contest – with a huge prize! Enter Fly Away to the Future, and you could find yourself in the middle of an exciting cultural immersion in Ghana, West Africa!
Ghana, particularly its capital city of Accra, is quickly becoming one of the hottest vacation spots (and in many cases, permanent relocation spots) for the global Black community. Enter to win and you could join thousands of members of the diaspora –– including some of your favorite celebs –– for a thrilling once-in-a-lifetime experience featuring a glamorous hair and a beauty day with My Black Is Beautiful Golden Milk products and more at the electrifying New Year “homecoming” holiday season in Ghana!
I can tell you firsthand that Ghana can be one of the most luxurious and exhilarating destinations for a vacation. As an avid world traveler, it’s one location I personally revisit again and again, and I discover a new favorite restaurant, turn-up spot, or activity each time. With my fourth jaunt to the crown jewel of West Africa on the horizon, let me tell you how amazing this prize package actually is.
The keyword in Accra is ENJOYMENT. Anyone who’s visited can tell you, it’s much more than a noun here. It’s a framework for life: living life to the fullest and enjoying both the simple and extravagant pleasures it brings your way. Everywhere you go, the people have smiles on their faces, and often make sure you wear one as well. Here’s how the lucky winner will embody the spirit of enjoyment and excitement on their big Ghanaian adventure.
Airfare and Accommodations for two
The biggest hurdle for most to travel to this gorgeous country is how to get there and where to stay. But you can relax! My Black Is Beautiful will provide you and a guest with top-notch accommodations for air travel and lodging at one of Accra’s many high-end hotels. Once you’re all settled in, the fun can really begin.
A glamorous hair and beauty day
Needless to say, you’ll want to get prepared to enjoy yourself to the fullest for your trip. Nothing prepares you for a fun-filled vacay vibe better than a day of beauty prep and pampering, and My Black Is Beautiful has you covered with its Golden Milk Collection. Ghana has some of the most skilled braiders and talented natural hairstylists in the world. With a little extra boost from the My Black is Beautiful Golden Milk Hydrating Shampoo, Tangle-Slaying Conditioner, and Edge Slayer, all infused with natural ingredients like honey, turmeric, and coconut milk help give you a nourishing experience you deserve with either natural or protective styles, the day of beauty and hair services will have you looking like the queen you are and ready to boldly express yourself on the trip and experience all that Accra has to offer during the annual season of return.
Access to Accra’s hottest beach club
From New Town to Aflao, Ghana’s coastline features some of the most beautiful beaches and breathtaking sunsets you’ll ever lay eyes on. Closest to the city, locations like Labadi Beach, Naked Beach, and Titanic Beach offer a number of beachfront restaurants, lounges, spas and recreation centers primed for optimal enjoyment of the warm Atlantic breezes and crisp cool waters. On some stretches of the beach, you can easily grab a drink, a quick authentically Ghanaian bite to eat (I’m a big fan of the kebab and a bag of fresh popcorn), enjoy a horseback ride, a brief thrill on a sand ATV, and purchase everything from a foot massage to a stylish new hat just steps away from your beach chair.
But nothing beats the day party vibes at one of Accra’s bustling beach clubs. Whether it’s the grand infinity pool and nonstop Amapiano music at Sandbox Beach Club or the all-day party bottomless cocktail energy at Polo Beach Club, the champagne-soaked beach club scene rivals and often overshadows the poolside parties of Las Vegas, Dubai, and Ibiza.
Sightseeing at iconic cultural landmarks
You can’t stop through a country with a history as rich as Ghana’s and not take the opportunity to learn a bit more. From Kwame Nkrumah’s lavish memorial grounds, to W.E.B. DuBois’ historic home and final resting site, to the iconic Black Star Square commemorating the country’s independence, Accra is home to many sites where the groundwork for Pan-Africanism and West African sovereignty was laid. That’s before we even mention the poignant yet powerful historical lessons to be heard and felt at Elmina Castle in Cape Coast, the final exit point from the continent for millions of Africans during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.
New Year’s Eve in Accra – UNMATCHED!
From sundown to sun-up, Accra’s club scene is stacked with music from Hip-Hop and High-Life to Amapiano and Afrobeats, with non-stop dancing and food options ranging from freshly made pizza to authentic Ghanaian cuisine…All. Night. Long. Soak up the culture and the libations at spots like Twist, Bloom Bar, or Kruna to name a few. When you take a look around, there’s no telling who you’ll see partying right alongside you, from Burna Boy to Naomi Campbell – I’ve spotted all sorts of celebs and public figures just casually breezing through the club. Be sure to dress to impress (and maybe down an energy drink or two) to bring in the New Year!
