Cut like a Diamond;

 

When’s the last time you did something for the first time?

IMG_9713.jpgI can scratch off being in a music video on my bucket list. lol.

Doing wardrobe styling as an assistant I have been on set countless times for the Miami Heat Basketball team, Dwayne Wade, Adam Levine, Pitbull and Chris Brown videos, etc). I’ve never been on the other side as one of the “models” for the videos I’ve contributed to. I experienced difficulty with taking myself seriously with receiving directions on set; “walk sexy” be sexy “smile sexy”. I’m low key an awkward person, ya know? But thankfully I don’t look too awkward. haha.

I’m Broke Because Of Books

Indeed. Story of my life. Like seriously, you know how people buy drinks for girls in bars? Why can’t people do that at books stores? Like if I’m looking at a novel in Barnes and Noble and some person walks up to me and strikes up a conversation and offers to buy the book for me there is a lot better chance of that working out in their favor. *shrugs* I’m just throwing that out into the universe.

No Commission; ArtBaselMiami

your flaws aren’t flaws; you’re art.

the No Commission activation was a contemporary art fair experience curated by The Dean Collection to forge a direct link between artists’ practices and art patronage. Bacardi & Swizz Beatz presented the No Commission Art Fair and the Untameable House Party Concert fair which provided exhibition space at no cost and artists retain 100 percent of sales proceeds to aid studio development. AMAZING !!!

Wynwood is home for me. for the free, creative, entrepreneurs. i was comfortably fully clothed (besides my boobs being out) in my sheer top, full length quilted floral skirt and my ever ready patent leather chelsea boots. i would further define my outfit choice as untamed but not excessive.

BLONDE MOMENT:

Art Basel ; In 1970, three Basel gallerists put their passion and determination behind an ambitious vision to form an international art fair. Now, Art Basel stages the premier international art shows, providing platforms for galleries and artists from around the world.

The US show of Art Basel Miami, which began in 2002, takes place each December and marks the winter reunion for the international art world.

Be confident in the skin you are in. At this age in my life, no one can touch my self-esteem. It is the ESTEEM of mySELF. How can you allow someone to destroy how you feel… about you?

You are Be-YOU-tiful !!!

Source of Knowledge

DSC_0944

After a life changing abundance of fun being involved in Mercedes Benz Fashion week- New York, How can my week possibly get any better? I spoke too soon. I unexpectedly had a great experience while in Newark, NJ. Besides the many horror stories you heard about the area it’s different when you explore a place with your own two eyes. Because my friend likes to sleep (over 12 hours to be exact) I decided I wouldn’t stay in wasting my morning away. Siri directed me to the nearest bookstore. How convenient 4 minutes walking distance, “Source of Knowledge“. What a powerful name I thought.

I arrived with the aroma of calming scents and positive vibes. A place so welcoming I spent 2 hours in. Not a huge place but an overwhelming selection of books from Blueprint for Black Power, Kemetic diet, Zane books and the newest The pussy trap 2. I left with two books I’ll most likely complete this week, Think and Grow Rich : A Black Choice by Dennis Kimbro and Napoleon Kill. Mastery by Robert Greene. Also, a DVD I that was playing while I was shopping around that kept drawing me in. Hidden Colors 1,2,and 3 !! I brought the entire collection lol.

I’ve gained so much knowledge from my prestigious University but I’ve truly received majority of my knowledge from “me time” spent in local libraries reserving and requesting books of my chocie. Being that I’m not sure where life will take me, I don’t always purchase books or my collection of books would be a library, itself. Money well spent. I love coming encounter with other individual who recognize my value as a Black Goddess and feed my mind with an intellectual conversation. My new traveling goal as, “The Blonde Historian” is wherever I am to explore the nearest bookstore.

Knowledge is power

Type A personality.

What does it mean to have a Type A personality? Type A side of the spectrum are those that are more driven, more focused, more goal-oriented, more diligent, more likely to get stressed and emotional. They love sleeping, but have trouble stopping their thoughts from racing. Doing things with a purpose is the only way they know how to live. If there is not purpose behind action, then Type A personalities don’t see a reason for doing it in the first place. They understand that actions are only worth the goal they are trying to achieve.

BLONDE MOMENT: 1980 Basquiat met Andy Warhol at a restaurant. Basquiat presented to Warhol samples of his work, and Warhol was stunned by Basquiat’s genius and allure. The two artists later collaborated. For Andy, it was love at first sight with Basquiat. It was unrequited, but they seemed to meet each other on a spiritual level and both benefited from the friendship. When Andy Warhol died on February 22, 1987, Basquiat became increasingly isolated, and his heroin addiction and depression grew more severe. Basquiat died at 27 from a heroin overdose.IMG_2795.JPG
