Hey Queen! I’m Iva- I’m hella happy you stopped by!

Here’s a bit about the blog and I…

Welcome to VSG, the blog Iva Lion created to share her day by day experiences with the world. She is a 24 year old who just recently got engaged to the man of her dreams. She has a fascination for photography, interior design, beauty & skincare, fashion, and as us millennials love to call it “aesthetics”. Inside VSG, you will find all of these topics and some! She is also a medical cannabis supporter. “I love anything that helps my brain open up and spill ideas on my notebook pages like a million bottles of colorful paint simultaneously falling on a canvas creating a beautiful masterpiece.” In addition to, everything listed above, POSITIVITY is a common theme you will find throughout the entire blog. 

A little more about me?


I am a 24 year old black woman from Chicago & a entrepreneur.


I just recently became engaged to the man of my dreams.

Positivity, interior design, skincare, & photography are things I have a extreme amount of passion for!

I was a shift manager at Starbucks for 5 years and I also worked for the Chicago Bears in the food department as a Front Of House Employee before I quit my jobs to work from home full time.

I’m am the best barista around town, hands down.

I can basically live off anything that contains matcha powder or chai.

I strongly believe in meditation, healing crystals, & yoga. 

I love inspiring people to focus, do better, and always remain positive!
