I'm Uche but friends call me Tope and that's because I have a Yoruba mom and an Ibo dad, hence the name of the blog, Ibogirlliving. Thank You for stopping by my blog today.
Just to give you a little background info on me and my journey, I used to have a brother but he passed away from complications with Sickle Cell and I used to be married but it was to the wrong man.
I started this blog as my own personal coping mechanism to process the loss of my brother and the breakdown of my marriage but then it has gradually become about slightly more than just that. I use this platform to speak to women like me who are approaching life in their 40s and finding that circumstances have forced them to start all over again. My goal is to encourage, offer support and hopefully walk with you through the uncertainties as I navigate through my own.
Here's hoping that you come along with me on my journey as I document all of my experiences, struggles and triumphs as a now 39 year old woman living under very new and uncomfortable circumstances but who remains optimistic about the future.
I also enjoy fashion and food so you will be seeing some of that as well and how I hope it reflects the woman I am becoming. One who is embracing new things and accepting that this is my new normal. Feel free to check me out on my socials, maybe you will like what you see and decide to follow.
