The New Sista Site… “According to Candace Ray!”

“You’re welcome for the memo..”  That’s the feeling you’ll get after visiting Candace Ray’s new media site…  “


According to Candace Ray

The Philadephia based site, is an urban variety online magazine/media site with chic and contemporary information that will have you coming back for more.

In it you’ll find everything from health and fitness to technology and education, to fashion and beauty tutorials.  Plus the latest in mainstream and underground music, and dating horrors of the young adult kind.  You’ll also get to see what’s going on in and around the city of brotherly love.  It’s like local newspaper meets magazine!!

RAICES had the wonderful opportunity to meet with the founder and writers of at their ceremonial  launch party which was held on Saturday August 9, 2014 in Philadelphia.  Cocktails, music, and a light spread were the backdrop as guests networked, took pictures and socialized.  Candace and her crew were on hand discussing the new site’s details:

“We are extremely excited to finally launch the site.  Our publication is fun, trendy and reliable.  We also feature important, controversial issues and informative articles from the best Temple University student writers. There’s the “Ask Candace” section, where NO question is off limits, and we also hope to include a section that embraces the LGBTQ community of Philadelphia.  (Candace Ray)

It was an enjoyable  evening and a perfect start for Candace Ray.
