My Final Blog Post…Thank You To My Readers (Letter)

Hi Everyone,

This has been long in the making. I have been putting this off for a smooth month, but it’s time. As you all know I have been going back and forth for a few years in regards to shutting Candy Diaries down. Well, this is it. This is my final post and I’ve got a few thangs to say. First and foremost,  I have loved every minute of it. Even when I didn’t feel like blogging, I put out content because I knew you guys wanted to read something new (Lowkey I’m a people pleaser). I have gained a lot of opportunities due to my writing and this site and I appreciate all of it .

Gal Where You Been…Again?


I know I keep disappearing and reappearing like I’m Kanye’s  sanity, but I’ve been busy as HELL. I know I haven’t been blogging and there is a reason for that, which I will discuss at a later time. As of right now, I’ve started new ventures that has kept me so busy I forgot I had a blog. No Lie.  One thing I’ve been working hard on is my t-shirt company. “Respect My Melanin”. LISTENNNNNNNNNN now this has been in the making for almost 5 years. I have wanted to start a t-shirt line for so long I just didn’t know where to start. I decided this year that I would do all the things I’ve been putting of, and this is one of them. Respect My Melanin is a company that takes pride in our blackness. The shirts are all designed by yours truly and I worked HARD on this ya’ll. I believe in supporting black owned businesses, so if you feel the same hit up the website. I have new shirts coming soon. I will leave all the info on down below as well.

Another thing I’ve been  working on,  I started a podcast with a few of my friends called “The Dope Clique” show. It’s a podcast of 30 something friends who discuss anything we damn well please. This is something that I’ve wanted to do for a while, and so glad that I have the opportunity to do it with my friends. I’ll leave the link to our website, where you can listen to the show, our social media and I’ll also leave the soundcloud link to our last episode. I hope you like, share, download, comment or whatever you wanna do.

I still have my wig company “Snatched Mane which ya’ll know I make custom units. I’m also taking classes to enter into another career field. I’m just trying new things because honestly, if you’re too afraid to take a chance on yourself how do you expect to live to your full potential? I am jumping into my destiny this year. Thank you guys for your patience.

Surprise…I’m Back: Update On Where I’ve Been


Well well well…Look who’s back. I just wanted to reintroduce myself and give you an update as to where I’ve been. For those who don’t know me, I’m “VI” the owner and editor of this here blog. For those of you who have been rocking with me for years, ya’ll know I have been gone for quiet some time. It is totally impossible to update on the goings on, but I’m just here to say I’m back with the jump off. I do want to thank ya’ll for your continuous support throughout the years. Honestly when I started this blog I never expected anyone to even read the thoughts I had in my head. I was just writing it for me, but many of you identified with what I was going through. I’ve heard that I’ve helped women in situations with their relationships, but honestly you guys helped me. I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Loving The One You're Not With!!

woman crying

Everyone at one point has been here. You want someone, but know you can never have them. Either they’re with someone else, just totally unavailable  or really just don’t want your ass. Some people try to erase them out of your minds, and hope that the feelings disappear. Then there are others who live by the rules “By any means necessary”. They will try any back-handed gutter shit to get the person they want. They seduce and pray that the sex will keep em coming back. People have a way of wanting the unattainable. We just want what we can’t have I guess. The more it’s away from us the more we feel we have to have it. It’s more like a sick game.
