Lemonade Is Not Beyonce’s Story

Ifie Natasha May 3, 2016 2 Comments

Yes. Another blog about Lemonade because that is what true art does. It not only evokes emotion but it incites cultural enlightenment. I believe Lemonade is more than Beyoncé telling a story about her and her husband. I feel as if she said “I want to tell the story of thousands of women” and that’s […]

The Fault In Our Stars. A beautiful movie that I shouldn’t have watched while loaded with hormones and various girly emotions. But I did. And though my eyes are red from the tears I shed, I’m glad that I did. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a movie about two young cancer survivors who fall […]

Is contentment, even if acquired through avoidance, not still contentment? This thought derived while reading a conversation between Liz Gilbert, a New York Time Best Selling Author, and her mother which she detailed in her Eat Pray Love sequel, Committed (which you should read only if you desire to learn more about the history, variances, […]

“Kill the noise. Kill the noise. Kill the noise.” I repeated these three words to myself over and over as I struggled to remain focused on the good in life. Distracted by my unfulfilled desires and fear, I found myself deep in question and without answers. Then I heard it, “kill the noise. kill the […]

Is Self Love Selfish?

There is an unrequited freedom that comes in solitude. The only person I have to please is me. The only opinion that matters is mine. The only happiness to be fulfilled is my own. The imminent pressure to fulfill the desires of others while balancing the art of appeasing oneself can be taxing. As a […]

Truth. Often daunting. Seldom accepted. Frequently offensive.  It can be the cause of fights, breakups and misunderstanding among loved ones and often fails us when met with judgement or reprimand.

Ifie Natasha December 10, 2015 1 Comment

Love. Hatred. Resentment. Sadness. Arguments, Misunderstanding. Loneliness. Beauty. Laughter. Possessiveness. Growth. Death. Life. Marriage. is all of the above. It translates the deepest emotions into the most aggressive actions at the drop of a dime. It is the effervescent mirror that reflects our behaviors and tendencies. The mirror that we naturally avoid as we settle […]

A Dying Superhero

Ifie Natasha November 25, 2015 11 Comments

 There is this ability we have. The ability to die over and over while trying desperately to look alive. Putting on makeup and cute clothes to feel beautiful. Convincing ourselves that we have to keep going or life will drown us with no remorse. We wake up early and sleep late. We’re the backbone to the […]
