As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist based in London, Natalie Manima has recognized the importance of one’s home environment in coping with issues like anxiety and low mood levels. Being of Ghanaian descent, Natalie grew up surrounded by vibrant colors and prints which she found to be uplifting. This was part of the inspiration behind launching Bespoke Binny, an eclectic homeware brand rooted in African expression. Bespoke Binny is a British-based business offering a range of handmade homeware and gift items made from West African fabric. The product range includes pillows, lampshades, aprons, oven gloves, table runners and card holders.
Viva’s is on our radar for a couple of reasons. One, it comes out of Slovenia, an under-the-radar travel destination that you’ll be sure to want to visit soon … before the word gets out.

Changing the Face of Beauty
CHANGING THE FACE OF BEAUTY COUCH SERIES? We believe the voice of CTFOB needs to be from the disability community and we are committed to providing a platform for all to speak out about their experience with advertising and the media. Our hope is that their voice will be heard and changes will be made in the industry to ensure inclusion of the disability community in ad messages all the time. In fact, the disability community remains the only minority that does not discriminate. Any person of any race or religion can become a part of this community at any time. Because of that we are advocating for the entire human race. Inclusion is important and you are going to hear why. ?
