No posts to display
Spent the past two days looking for apartments in Los Angeles and here’s a selfie that says “wow, cool sunlight,” but also “I just had breakfast while wearing lipstick and will reapply in the Lyft,” while also softly whispering “help me find a place to live already plssssss” 🏡 💚🥝You read this correctly. You. Could. Get. A. Pop-Socket!!!! IT’S PLASTIC and says OBVIOUSLY (🔌✨🤩) and is GREEN but will also HELP YOU NOT DROP YOUR PHONE. Too cool for one? Ha, no, but even if you *think* that you can always still get one and give it to your much cooler friends and relatives. More info in bio!! 🥝💚When people ask me what my book is about...it’s this. Plus 🦝 and 🛍 and 🏔and 🏰 and 🌞 💃🏾! Announcement for everyone who has/will pre-order coming later today.Let’s spend the rest of the day trying to do “Maps” on expert.“Sweet, crazy conversations full of half sentences, daydreams and misunderstandings more thrilling than understanding could ever be.” - Toni Morrison in Beloved. RIP. 🌼Once upon a time I needed to do some recon on essay books before attempting to write my own. @jazzloon let me borrow** not HAVE Meaty by @bitchesgottaeat. I read it in a day and a half, and couldn’t believe a book could be so funny, so relentlessly honest, so graphic, so modern, so chill, and so truly goddamn hilarious. After that I read all of her blog, and followed her everywhere online. The smile I have had for a few weeks knowing this was her blurb for Obviously: Stories from my Timeline 🔌 has been one of the biggest of my life. Go pre-order my book and if you’re unfamiliar with the genius that is Samantha Irby, rectify that too. Xx 📚 🤩Had the distinct honor of sitting for this portrait by @shyamagolden, an incredible woman of color artist who absolutely does some of the most mesmerizing, colorful, uplifting work I’ve seen. I reached out about my book launch and how I was already tired of talking about myself in these posts and she offered to do this portrait!! How lucky am I? Befriending artists is so easy in New York, and maybe the best thing I’ve ever actively sought to do. Anyway, blah blah blah follow her and love her work!!I can get down but I can’t get back up 😂💖I’m nothing without my team💖⁣ ⁣ Starring:⁣ ⁣ 💄: @alanawrightmakeup⁣ ⁣ 👩🏾‍🦱: @hsbk_⁣ ⁣ 📸: @erinpatriceobrien⁣ ⁣ 📚: me GO TO MY BIO AND PRE-ORDER DAT WE NEED A BESTSELLER BB 😘Things were so much simpler back then. 😂 I think my favorite Timbaland song is probably The Way I Are because it still feels like that summer I worked at Forever 21. 💙I’m trying to commission some art for my upcoming book release (pre-order already, that shits out 9/24 don’t miss out), so if you know any really amazing artists #onhere pls tag them so I can check em out!
