Hello everyone, Merry Christmas to you all! It's been an awesome day so far on my bed, in my onesie but I hope you are not being a bum like I am.

My friend, Yeka who writes beautiful articles at Thingstheyshouldknow paid me a visit last week and we had a blast, in our own little way. She introduced me to some really nice Ghanaian and Nigerian TV shows - An African City and Gidi Up (search YouTube) which we watched all week in addition to some Nigerian movies. Of course, Nigerian delicacies like meatpie, puff puff, rice and stew, Edikanikong and pounded yam were not left out in the kitchen department. Oh and she finally showed me how to make an omelette, southern style. :)

Right before our first trip to the mall, I started getting dressed but my clothes were certainly not for a trip to the mall. She was confused. So I hit her with the blog photo shoot and she complied.

Message from Yeka: "Tell them I love them, but most importantly, God loves them more. Live life knowing you are loved".

Yeka's Yarn for a Cause: This Christmas, Yeka is sharing her love by knitting scarves and hats to raise money for Memunatu Magazine, a charity organization I recently volunteered for. She is still working on this project and will donate 50% of all profits to Memunatu. See more of her work on Instagram.
