Christmas Day in Nigeria is a public holiday that is marked by the emptying of towns and cities with excitement in the air. People travel to their respective state or origin to celebrate with their loved ones, it is often a time for family re-union, a time to re-strategize and focus, it is a time to seek the face of God and make new year resolutions and to also bless those less fortunate and general acts of random kindness.

You are invited to the Beautiful Heritage exhibition. An exhibition of Style, Elegance and fun pieces of clothing items (for Men & Women), Jewelry and home decor.
This exhibition is a collaboration between three indigenous businesses run by women entrepreneurs. Proverbs Creations by Bukola Adenuga, African Idy by Idy Toye-Arulogun and Eira by Ronke Akpata.
Having a thirty-five-year history behind it, and with exhibitors from about twenty-one African countries, South African “Africa’s Travel Indaba”, is undoubtedly Africa’s biggest annual tourism marketing event as well as one of the top three events of its kind on the global calendar. Therefore, I am always looking forward to having a great time at this Africa’s own international expo and I must say that in the past four years that I have had the privilege of attending Indaba, it’s been truly fantastic as well as memorable.
The creative and innovative industry is one of the major bedrocks of the economic development and civilization of the advanced world. It involves all those human activities that bring into form out of nothing, through imagination, design and production. It creates investments that sustains humanity, keeps it gainfully employed and assures the continuous development of the world.
Meaningful living on the other hand, is about deriving happiness from helping the vulnerable people in society. It is a lifestyle. It is about helping the helpless members of society. It involves living the life of giving,planting seeds for trees that will someday give shade to people that we may never meet. It is a lifestyle of deriving happiness from promoting the welfare of others by providing succour to the needy to better their lives.
This post goes out to my fellow perfectionists. So for a while now, after procrastination, the second thing on my negative list to consciously get rid of this year is ‘Over Perfectionism’. I thought it was a good/okay thing, but I now realise there is a very bad side of this trait I have acquired.
The thought of this led to this quote over the weekend, and I’m sure you can relate to it, “Over Perfectionism Can Certainly Kill/Drown Your Beautiful idea”. It’s time to get it behind you, and cast the negative spirit out fast.

Adire cloth (pronounced Ah-DEER-eh), is one of the many African textiles I really love. It is quite versatile and I love the way the patterns can be so simple and yet unique. It is an age old textile of African origin which has been brought up in several discussions for many years.
With the changing times and discovery of newer findings, a revised edition of old Adire cloth publications is a welcome introduction to our knowledge accumulation. Adire is a Yoruba word for indigo-dyed style of fabrics, it is so unique that it can be considered a form of cloth art….
