More often than not, we find ourselves being apologetic for just being us. We apologize from a spectrum of things : vital to inconsequential. I do not condone rudeness nor disrespect however, I am all for people taking a stand for what they truly believe and who they truly are. My name is Ife, I […]

Sunny Stripes

Since Mother Nature has decided to keep acting like a heartbroken lover 🙄, I am just going to soak up some sun by proxy from my  birthday trip to Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is such a beautiful place with so much authenticity that is very endearing and charming. I must say that this was one trip I […]
