The Five at Five: Liha Beauty
8 Oct 2020
The Five at Five is a download of the best things to read, watch, shop, and get inspiration from – ready for the weekend. Each week, we’ll be bringing you selections from different tastemakers in our community, so you can delve into what’s keeping them entertained.
This week’s curator is Liha Okunniwa, co-founder of LIHA Beauty – a brand born from the desire to create an organic skincare that blends the rich botanical life of West Africa with traditional English aromatherapy and folk remedies.
Future Shock by Alvin Toffler. Simultaneously eye opening and humorous, this book of essays by the Economist written in 1970 popularised the terms information overload and throw-away society. It’s so interesting to re-read now whilst considering the internet and algorithm culture.
Mo' Better Blues. A classic that never fails to cheer me up. Denzel in his heyday and Jazz? Heaven.
Any playlists by Acyde on Spotify. Acyde is and will always be my favourite DJ so until I can dance against the speaker IRL wine in my living room will have to do.
Local European, amazing staples from a fellow black women owned business. Perfect bikinis, sweats and dresses for when I can get on a plane again.
Nique Miller for surf moves, Undercover Osh for visuals and Rick Rubin for zen quotes.
