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.

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

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
