Essence Magazine - Ugh!
After much anticipation, I finally got the latest issue of Essence in Accra (more about my trip later) and can I say What a big waste of time and money! Don't quite know what's happening with the magazine, but it's not good. All the little things that set Essence aside from the mass of 'women's magazines' out there are slowly disappearing and what we're left with is an increasingly bland Black version of Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Marie Claire, etc. Well, thank goodness for Nigeria's own True Love and Genevieve.
