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.

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 !!!

To produce flowers; Blossom.

Every flower must grow through dirt.

DSC_0388DSC_0407Sometimes you have to step back and smell the roses. Granted these flowers were fake but that doesn’t take away from the value of joy it brought me for those few moments. I’ve had to realize that, “Nothing will ruin your 20’s more than thinking you should have your life together already.” It’s a process and a journey that I’ve learned to go with the flow. As I continue to work hard everything will fall into place.DSC_0419

British girl in Miami; M i S F i T.

DSC_0689DSC_0666When I took these photos and showed my mother…she immediately exclaimed how I would fit in, in England. My mother was born in raised in Birmingham, England. She knows that one day I’ll be leaving the states to continue my life in England. It’s a place I fell in love with as a child. The weather, the historic building felt like home. I often feel in Miami that I don’t belong. Contiguously asked where am I from and why I dress like that. Dress like what? I’ve never really fit in, not even with the outcast. I long for a place to belong. Where my style is embraced. Not criticized. For now, this blonde will take over South Florida then New York, and London town here I come!DSC_0661_2DSC_0653_2

I’m versatile when it comes to what I wear. I truly feel most comfortable in street styled clothing. Of course, I got stares of my shirt being half in half out but I am confident whenever I step anywhere past my mailbox. I don’t care if I’m in second-hand goods. Regardless, of the millions I plan to make in the future my love for the thrift shop won’t ever die.

BLONDE MOMENT: The earliest known thrift/”charity” shop was in 1899 selling goods that were made by blind people to raise money. It’s obviously more popular now for different reasons such as, for those who are frugal, environmentalist, or fashionistas like myself on a hunt for one of kind items.DSC_0442DSC_0449

i Met GOD, She’s Black .

 

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.
