    Blogger Interview #10: Myyeka

    Hey everyone! Ready to discover some more wonderful blogs? We’re on interview 10 out of 12 so far in this series, and whilst it’s sad to think that there are not many left right now, I’m definitely planning another series like this for the future. It strikes me how blogging enables you to connect with people, whether that’s from your own country, or halfway across the world. It’s time to find out what being a blogger is like in Nigeria with the lovely Yeka from Myyeka.   1. How did your blog start?

    Christmas Decorations

    Hello everybody! I am not calling this a Blogmas post, as I have decided to do Vlogmas instead. However, it is that time of year when we are getting festive and going all out on the decorations.
