Who Are We?
Candy Diaries has morphed into not just a relationship blog, but a lifestyle website that deals with the real. We focus on discussing the ups and downs of relationships, current entertainment news and the latest trending topics.
Born and raised on the beautiful island of St.Thomas, V.I. discovered her love of writing at the age of 12. Her vivid imagination inspired her to try her hand at storytelling; and, as a result, she wrote a 13 chapter fictional book. Looking at her finished product, she realized that she was at her happiest when writing and she definitely had a lot to say.
In 2001, V.I. migrated to Atlanta to complete her studies in Business, but still remained passionate about writing and storytelling. Committed to developing her talent, she began writing a journal to chronicle her personal experiences and the lessons learned from her relationships. Many of her friends found it easy to confide in her because it seemed that she had already experienced almost every possible relationship scenario. From listening to her stories – told with brutal honesty and raw insights – they were able to find solutions to their own problems. Time after time, they kept urging her to publish her stories and reach a broad audience who could relate to many of the same issues and experiences, but she was unsure of how to proceed.
V.I. was introduced to blogging in 2008, and she hasn’t looked back since. What started out as an outlet for sharing her relationship experiences in preparation for publishing her book, quickly catapulted her into the blogosphere! V.I. brings a real, straight-to-the-point approach to relationships with her Candy Diaries blog. She is honest and open about all of the issues she experienced in her past, and uses them to enlighten others. She’s the homegirl from ‘round the way who shares her unique perspective on things. Although V.I. has gained a very strong following, she insists on keeping a simple approach by writing as if she’s talking to a friend. Her blogs have a definite personal touch, and at the same time it’s as if she’s tackling your issues and helping you think a little bit clearer. As a result of her writing style, many great opportunities have presented themselves. V. I. also writes for several different websites and has recently opened an online store *Snatched Mane* featuring her custom wig units.
V.I. still resides in Atlanta and is still focused on her writing career. Her growth and experiences has helped her move forward and assist in the growth of others.
