The beauty founder’s favorite place to disappear.

Highly subjective takes on life's most interesting experiences.

The best place to disappear?

Anywhere with a quiet beach is my favorite place to disappear. One of my favorite places to disappear when I am in Ghana is Prampram — it's a beautiful town off the water, past Tema. There are these amazing beach houses right on the water. I also love staying at Ocean Green Beach Villas. They have the best fufu and the sunset is to die for. One of the best mango sellers is on the way there. I also love escaping to Costa Rica once a year. I stay at this beautiful beach house in Jaco.
