BIRTHDAY 2020. This year has been one of incredible perspective. It has made it impossible to look away from both the good and the bad. We have had to get incredibly comfortable and uncomfortable. My take aways... ONE: surround yourself with the best people and love them really loudly because you never know when the world will fall in on itself and those people will be all you have. TWO: never cut your own bangs. Thank you for the birthday love/ messages/ virtual hugs/ DMs about your quarantine bang crises ❤️ (photos taken prequarantine with my love outloud forever pod )
We all know these shoes are instant cool. Immediate cred. Contact high fly. Right? Well here is their story. Be prepared to be STUNNED. Once upon a time, my best friend Miss Sneakerhead @thatclevershark set her heart on the most iconic Js in the world. She stalked the internet and saved all her money and then threw it at the screen. She then patiently waited the most excruciating few weeks and then they arrived. She brought them to my house. Unboxed. And then carefully took out her babies and fell madly in love and before she even had a chance for her feet to touch them I cluelessly waltzed in in my burger shirt and said “nice shoes Wends can I try them on?”. And she, without hesitation, said “Sure, ma.” DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE ACT OF LOVE SHE DEMONSTRATED. THE COURAGE. THE BRAVERY. THE SACRIFICE. The sheer strength of that woman. The depth of the sisterhood. Beyond comprehension. She’s a life lesson.
On my morning scroll down memory lane... A Greek Cypriot Indian girl goes to her best friend’s Greek-Cypriot Syrian wedding in Spain five years ago and demands that Bollywood music is played. Lesson: I’m a bad guest. Don’t invite me to your party. I’ll take over the playlist and drink all your champagne. OKAY BACK TO STARING AT A WALL IN MY HOUSE.
The shoes too pretty to just post one picture. She deserves multiple angles. And I am here for this hot selfie ladies feelin themselves sisterhood trend. No need to be invited. You wake up fresh to death everyday. Post that. In whatever color scheme and lighting makes you look the kewtest. Then tag me so I can see.
Watched Last Dance and now I’ll be sitting here screaming PUT ME IN COACH to no one because it’s a pandemic and I haven’t seen anyone in a million years. *i was too scared to wear my pizza shirt those who know know.
Me to Me about about this never ending spiral that is 2020.

Quarantine Day four hundred bazillion: nap eat on repeat with small breaks to stare out my window general demeanor is one of melancholy with a strong side of apathy so basically I’m a house cat for proof see THE TAIL I HAVE GROWN.

Watching the @spacex x @nasa launch feels so surreal. A couple years ago our cousin @astrodocscott took us to the Space Center in Houston and gave us an all access tour with his friend the legend Gene Kranz (flight director of Apollo 11 and 13 and many others ) that completely blew my mind. Our cuz Scott has done five Space Shuttle flights and seven spacewalks (think Georgie Clooney ala Gravity but real ). In his last mission he had a completely unplanned EVA to repair a live solar array which was totally insane... read about it. Insane. In May 2016 he was inducted into the United States Astronaut Hall of Fame. To which my response was UH ARENT ALL ASTRONAUTS INDUCTED INTO THE HALL OF FAME LIKE WHAT MORE DOES A PERSON HAVE TO DO TO QUALIFY YOU WENT TO SPACE AND SURVIVED. This hermetic earthling is wishing these astronauts well on their flight today and a safe return (also @astrodocscott wrote an incredible book called The Sky Below about his time in space and his summiting of Everest... just in case you want to read about stuff you would totally do if you weren’t quarantined. ) 🏔 💫 🚀 #failureisnotanoption #launchamerica EDIT: SEE YOU SATURDAY!!
That time I lived in Fiji and discovered the best neighbors. We hung out every single day and became incredibly close friends. They told me wild stories about living in Africa and the crocodiles and leopards that wandered through and they made great tea and gave me amazing relationship advice about what to do when things get hectic and best of all WALKED THEIR CAT EVERY NIGHT ON THE BEACH. So nice when you find yourself on a remote island and still manage to find “your people.” - as much as I miss family and friends during this quarantine I miss when the world smashes you into strangers that make you feel seen and loved. Got any random traveler stranger turned best friend stories? #pattyandneilandcatjacques
This basically sums up the entire David/ Lana story line on 90 Day Fiancée. Those who know, know. TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK OF THEIR ENTIRE INSANE STORY BECAUSE I HONESTLY CAN’T COPE WITH IT. #dangerzone
No one in the New Girl family has the words... Lynn Shelton was the most wonderful creative human and we were all lucky enough to be around her many times over many years. If you love our show, you love her... we are heartbroken.
This is the only photo I took during the Prince episode of New Girl. I had been called to set and decided to hide in the back of the room because of all of the natural mayhem that occurs when you have a living legend just walking around. It was about 4 am and I was curled up in a corner behind slews of background actors who were waiting to shoot a big party scene and then the seas parted and Prince walked though and came and stood in front of me. He said “How are you?” And I replied like the sweet angel I am “I’M TIRED.” And he said “Well then tonight, I’ll dream for you.” He then evaporated and I took this photo.. hours later he reappeared and taught me to play ping pong and it became the beginning of one of the most unique lovely friendships I’ve ever had.
