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

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

Thrift & Rip

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

The Blonde Historian. Who is she?

DSC_0636The 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.

Who is she?

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.
