This Ain't No Thursday Tea - #TeaspirationThursday

This ain’t no Thursday Tea, but it’s a #BrokeandBougie Saturday brew full of Teaspiration for my Weekenders | #PickYourPotion

Taurus: Motto—I have.


 

Your wealth is always abundant now, in all that you currently have—not in that which you seek to obtain.

Love, E²

The latter…the thoughts of a wife attempting to find places for all of her artsy high-end fashion purses, pocketbooks, totes, handbags and all of the other lavishly bougie thrift store finds from all of those lovely days when King was like…”Wanna go thrifting today?” *hands over cash* “Knock yourself out Queen.”

that girl in Nana’s hand-me-down sweater and Mom’s vintage bell bottoms, going ham at the Goodwill 50% off sale…

#BrokeandBougie | Value Potential, Live with Purpose, Be Intentional

#BrokeandBougie | Value Potential, Live with Purpose, Be Intentional

We have the tendency to believe—falsely— that because we may be currently struggling or have a lot less than we desire we do not deserve more—deserve to live a life worth claiming. Ehhhhhhh—you could not be farther from the truth if you are thinking like this, viewing life with such a negative perspective. To tell the truth, you are selling yourself oh so short and confining yourself to a poor man’s hell. Continue reading “#BrokeandBougie | Value Potential, Live with Purpose, Be Intentional”

Dead horses, the unconventional…& diamonds cut from blood | #BrokeandBougie

Okay, so back to “How to live a fun & lavish life on a low-low budget?”

My intention is to always look my best and always be an unapologetic reflection—representation of my own light. Thus, I get to pick and choose at my own free will the trends and fades I indulge in, the places I go, the events I attend, and the spoils I spend my hard-earned coins on. Despite the fancy high-end price tags for generic sweatshop manufactured pieces and the glitz and glam of flashy lights, I choose my lavish.

#BrokeandBougie | Poor frog living like a rich prince

I am a whole host of desires, but I want for nothing….

You may not be financially or economically blessed with a fortune of notes, or dollars right now, but does that truly stop you from appreciating or enjoying the life that you have, the memories you’ve made, the experiences you’ve gained, the knowledge you’ve acquired, or the lessons you’ve learned… Continue reading “#BrokeandBougie | Poor frog living like a rich prince”

Wedding vs Marriage?¿ —#WeddedWednesday|#BrokeandBougie

Wedding vs Marriage?¿ —#WeddedWednesday|#BrokeandBougie

“I don’t really want to marry you, I just want a lavish wedding…”  said someone somewhere boldy mmm…or possibly in confidence. . .

I’m not sure what’s gotten into people nowadays, but we have an annoying tendency to insist on putting the cart before the horse. We rush down the aisle…and sometimes it is simply for the purpose of saying “We’s married now!” The sad truth is—just because you performed a wedding ceremony and exchanged vows does not necessarily constitute that you are indeed married. Sorry, but not sorry to rain on anyone’s parade—eh, it rained own our wedding day, and I couldn’t have been more elated. Continue reading “Wedding vs Marriage?¿ —#WeddedWednesday|#BrokeandBougie”
