Alicia Boateng’s fabulous cups are almost too beautiful to use, but we have ours in regular rotation for our morning tea. (The cup topper serves as a warmer to keep your beverage hot.) We went for the royal RBG bling cup.

Alicia Boateng Designs a BIPOC small business located in South Florida creates these wonderful art pieces.




Gaining notoriety (the good kind) for her Afro Glam Collection, Ms. Boateng says she aims to inspire and empower all women. And part of the proceeds from the AFRO GLAM COLLECTION is donated to Girl Pride Africa.


Most of the 16 oz cups are $45 with handcrafted gems carefully placed for decoration. Do NOT microwave or put in the dishwasher, but you knew that.

There are also fun blinged-out tumblers, like this Afro Glam ‘Carrie’ 22.oz Acrylic tumbler ($40.)

Perfect holiday gifts for girlfriends, right?
