Ashleigh Hardin-Jones, Social Media Manager

Her Favorite Fragrance(s):

"This was hard because I'm a perfume connoisseur. I collect them and especially the bottle so I have a ton of faves from Beyonce Heat to Chanel No 5. But I narrowed it down to 2, one for those on a budget and one for the splurgers: Viktor & Rolf and Jessica Simpson's Fancy."

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

What She Loves About It:

"It smells amazing and a little goes a long way!"

What She Could Live Without:

"You're going to have to dig deep in your pockets and gather your coins because it's expensive with a price tag of $140."

Why It's A Signature Scent:

"Call me behind the times but I didn't know about Flower Bomb until Wale put it in a song. When I looked it up I saw the price tag, saved it to my Amazon wish list and that's where it's been sitting for the past 4-5 years. Until now. I finally have it and I'm so in love with the scent. It's perfect for a night out or a night in with bae. I received it as a Christmas gift so if you're on a budget like me, you can add it to your birthday, Valentine's day, or Christmas list (it's never too early)."

On the cheaper end...

Jessica Simpson's Fancy

Why She Loves It:

"I love its lasting scent, that it's under $20, and that it lasts."

What She Could Live Without:

"The rose gold foil on the cap rubs off over time I use it."

Why It's A Signature Scent:

"This perfume released 10 years ago and I fell in love with the sweet smell. It's like Cotton Candy but for grown ass women. It's perfect for everyday wear and I love the design on the bottle and around the neck of the cap."

Bonus: "I got Good Girl by Carolina Herrera recently and it's the cutest bottle, yes, a real heel! And a really nice scent. Price tag on $."

Jason and Elise Robinson’s union is a reminder that kind people still get their happily ever after. The pair had their first date in October of 2021 and tied the knot on June 15, 2024. Both of them have dedicated their lives to celebrating and supporting Black culture so it was only fitting they get married in what's considered the Black Hollywood of America during the Juneteenth celebration weekend. From the florists to Elise and Jason's gown and suit designers to the table signage and so much more, everything was Black-owned. It's no wonder their love for Black culture was the jumping-off point for their love story.


South Africa has always been a bucket list destination for me. I’ve admired the culture and history of its people, and I’ve been aware of its troubled political past since childhood. I’d often read books about the systemic and political struggles there, and I’ve watched many documentaries about esteemed activists and leaders like Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, and entertainers like Miriam Makeba and Brenda Fassie.
