What is originality? Undetected plagiarism.
The book Steal Like An Artist is crammed with straight forward wisdom. Each time I open this book I find myself having “ah ha” moments. The author Austin Kleon provides friendly reminders on how to unlock your creativity.
My favorite point made in the book is: SCHOOL YOURSELF.
School is one thing. Education is another. Ah ha. Go to library. Google your dreams. Google your problems. We are swimming in an ocean of information yet drowning in ignorance. Yes, I have a college degree yet sooo much of what I’ve learned is from spare time of my OWN research. “School” doesn’t make someone smarter nor better than you. Its a lousy excuse to use not going to school why you don’t know something when resources surround us. Looking things up and going deeper than anyone else is what gets you ahead. Two of my most creative friends, one is a high school dropout and the other never went to college. They constantly challenge me when I come to them about ideas.
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.
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.
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.
Felt good for my ego to be stroked a little, “are you a model?” are you one of the artist? “awesome shirt !” can I take your picture? “can I touch your hair?” you look amazing \ THANK YOU .

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 !!!
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

The Name: The Blonde Historian, just… came to me. I have my Bachelors degree from THE University of Florida in History. I took courses that were fascinating yet complex as Politics and violence in Africa since 1800, the transformation of capitalism, medieval Germany, the Holocaust, to Salem witch trials of 1692. I love to read, research and apprehend the question of who, what, when, where, why?
I’m a woman of many hats yet the career path I’ve chosen to pursue is a personal stylist. Perfecting my craft is my priority. In my humble opinion, I’m talented with having a keen eye for fashion. As Will Smith said, “Talent you have naturally. Skill is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft.” My head has been in the books exploring the origin of fashion history. My mind goes 0-100, REAL QUICK. I’m infatuated with how fashion lives in cycles. For example, in recent months we’ve heard the catchy phrase “what’s a waist” coined by entrepreneur premadonna. The corset is back in style but the corset was originally created in the 16th century. I love how clothes continue to evolve. My hunger for fashion in me doesn’t stop. We are a fortunate generation to literally obtain information at our fingertips. Thank you Larry Page and Sergey Brin for creating GOOGLE!
All in all, my blog name speaks for itself being I am blonde and I have a strong passion for history. I’m here to share fashion history facts, style tips, motivate you and share my personal style/feelings. I want to feed your mind because knowledge is power. Our men and women need to feel encouraged about who they are on the inside, not torn down for not looking like an unrealistic ideal of beauty.
If I can have any impact, I want women to feel good about themselves and have fun with fashion- Michelle Obama.
i am often asked if i believe in god.
what do i believe in?
i thought about that.
i don’t believe in god as a person, that’s one thing i am sure about.
God is like love. and love is inside everybody.
that’s something i would like to believe in.
decided to challenge the unspoken, yet widely accepted social norm . society has unconsiously accepted the depiction of God is a white male with long flowing hair, big beard with a robe. Doesn’t matter what religion jehovah witness, jewish, christian that is what is put in the media when you think about the concept of God. This shirt is the exact opposite. “I met God, she’s Black” is a pretty awesome notion that God could be anything other than a white dude. God has no color, and the color depends on the way we think.
