LA LA LAND ✨
Sebastian : Alright, I remember you. And I'll admit I was a little curt that night.
Mia : "Curt?"
Sebastian : Okay, I was an asshole. I can admit that. But requesting "I Ran" from a serious musician, it's just, it's too far.
Mia : My Lord, did you just say "a serious musician?"
Sebastian : I don't think so.
Mia : Can I borrow what you're wearing?
Sebastian : Why?
Mia : Because I have an audition next week. I'm playing a serious firefighter.
Sebastian : So you're an actress? I thought you looked familiar. Have I seen you in anything?
Mia : Uhh, the coffee shop on the Warner Brothers lot, that's a classic.
Sebastian : Oh I see.
Mia : Yeah.
Sebastian : So you're a barista? And I can see how you could then look down on me from all the way up there.
I always feel strangely out of place, especially when photographed by others. But this was nearly a year ago, how things have changed! An entire 180... Sometimes things come to be what you never expected them to be. You may lose a friend or two, or find a set of strong arms and a shy smile. A person can change and become a stranger. In wrong turns and mistaken paths, is there a silver lining?
@gastonbacquet has been my very best friend in this life, the very best. No one I’ve ever met has been a better example of being so attuned with emotions and the often unapparent beauty that follows it. Sometimes I catch myself groveling in some thing or another and he would say, what’s there to be done now? It’s fine. Let it go. For millennials the inability to complain feels like I was cheated out of my emotions but of course that’s not the case (it never is). So instead of hanging onto angst like a fort, I try to return to the balance ❤️
Slowed down times are precious the way a photograph is; there is something warm about being able to slowly slip out the front door to see what the world is up to today, whether it is cold and freezing in the winter or warmth from the summer.
So much goes into the culmination of two lives in a single day and it’s the greatest gift I’ve been given and the greatest growth I’ve ever known.
If you’ve never packed your whole life into a box and changed every comfortable aspect of your life for the unknown, I suggest you try it.
Swipe for before/after ☺️ ✨organic permanent makeup over scar tissue. ✨ Just got my lips touched up from my friend @nancyakbari ✨ I am so happy to have such beautiful lips and brows!! I never talk about this - so many of you didn’t know that I was born with a very small opening on my upper lip. Also called a cleft lip, or the less attractive moniker: “hare lip” (like a bunny). I didn’t get enough vitamins in my birth mother’s belly. (Take those prenatals! And I’m adopted, so don’t blame my mom 🤣). Now I’ve reached that point in my life where if I can help others, I will talk about my struggles. 💋 As a model and actor, and as a woman, my appearance means a lot to me. 💁🏻♀️ I met @nancyakbari about 3 months ago to do my brows, and after I saw how beautiful they turned out I booked another appointment for my lippies. She has done an AMAZING job in creating a natural Cupid’s bow over scar tissue and overall, my entire lips. ✨ Before I was scared to let anyone touch my face with permanent makeup, so this is saying a lot. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I really trust Nancy! If you have any questions about organic permanent makeup and want to set up a consultation please go see @nancyakbari ☺️ #permanentmakeup#organicpermanentmakeup#opm#lip#lipstick#cleftlip#model#actor#westhollywood#losangeles#beauty#microblading#iwokeuplikethis
PART 10 of the #poetryseries that @alyssagabbana told me to post on Instagram... It’s been a while. Funny how social media can trick people into feeling ashamed of vulnerability. Anyhow, here goes nothing (again ha)! The following pieces are recollected from as far as 7 years ago. Not sure how many pieces I’m going to post today. I’m getting quite tired of social media... However it serves as a great creative outlet for now. #begentle#tired
