Adubea (Janet Oddoye) was born in England to a Danish mother with an eye for beautiful soft furnishings and vintage clothing, and a Ghanaian father, civil engineer by day and amiable socialite by night. At a tender age, Adubea was steeped in an aesthetic that was quintessentially Danish as well as being influenced by traditionally African social and moral codes of conduct.

Naturally gifted with her hands along with an inherent faculty for attention to detail, Adubea learnt from her maternal grandmother, how to crotchet, knit and needlework during her visits to Denmark.

Her education in a prestigious international school in Ghana broadened her cultural horizons and further reinforced her values of integrity, based upon the giving back principle from a position of privilege. But perhaps more importantly the flames of her love affair with Africa were fanned.

As a young mother and wife in London, she embarked on a seventeen-year career in direct sales, attaining senior directorship level. Her human resources skills, methodical thought processes and tireless work ethic evolved, as did the numerous teams under her mentor-ship.

However, her passion for all things beautifully hand crafted coupled with her thirst for design knowledge did not wane. She proceeded to enlist herself in various courses covering interior design, furniture upholstery and jewellery design, culminating in business skills: a holistic strategy eventually harnessed to introduce the world to the ADUBEA JENSEN luxury handbag line.

Adubea Jensen handbags are uniquely made using tiny beads which are woven together to form exquisite one- of-a-kind bead bags. The process is 100% handmade and a bag can take up to 50 hours to make. Their vibrant colors and amazing designs speak to the modern, fashionable and sophisticated woman. Coupled with the limited availability of each design, owning an Adubea Jensen handbag becomes an irresistible must-have.

Adubea Jensen Designs Limited, established only in 2014, encapsulates Adubea’s life journey. The beautifully chic accessories range is homage to her personal and cultural narrative to date.

The design led precision, muted hues, quality craftsmanship and flamboyant tones demanded by Adubea sit perfectly with her mentorship and training programmes.

They’ve been dating for less than a month.

But Blac Chyna, 29, has already started coordinating her outfits to those of her younger boyfriend, YBN Almighty Jay, 18. The pair were seen holding hands in matching black and white attire in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The star poured her enviable curves into black leggings for the day of shopping with her toyboy.

 She paired the flattering garment with a crop top that showed off plenty of the reality TV star’s tattooed torso and slipped a white Beatles jacket over the top.

The former flame of sock designer Rob Kardashian rocked a blue wig and heart shaped sunglasses for the excursion.

Her No Hook rapper beau went with ripped white jeans and a checkered jacket for their outing, matching the older woman’s color palette perfectly.

He tells us that his career has been a journey with many lessons learned, attesting to the fact that nothing comes easily.

You don’t need us to tell you that accessories can take an outfit from boring and basic to glamorous in an instant. Admit it or not, there are certain fashion accessories that you simply cannot do without and so we’ve gathered a list of major accessories every woman should have. See what’s hot in the accessory game :

Sunglasses
Forget a smile, you’re never fully dressed without a killer pair of shades. Bigger is usually better, but not mandatory if they overwhelm your face shape.

Hats

Effortlessly chic. And who has to know that you’re actually hiding a nightmare hair day?

Shoes

Update your shoe collections with more sneakers, flats and heels that don’t lie! From printed, striped, velvety, denim like and plastic shoes, you can make anything with minimal outfits. 

Bags

These babies are a must! And the good thing about purchasing many bags it to satisfy all forms of fashion fancy. From intricate details on it like beads and sequins, embroidery or any textured feel you can go crazy with your bag choice. If plains are your thing, you can find them in different types.

A waist belt
Well, it’s not like we ever really wear a belt to hold our pants up. Move your belt a few inches north and exploit its waist-defining potential instead.

Jewellery

From modern metal creations to sparkling pieces you can find all types of jewellery in silver, bronze, gold, diamonds, pearls, gemstones and you can go on naming it as it sets new standard in accessorizing. Fashion jewellery like brooches, rings, bracelets, anklets, bangles, watches, earrings and necklaces can be worn all at a go keeping it minimal but yet vibrant to admire.
