This is also what I look like when I act normal in athleisure, thank you for seeing me Cara.


Where are we on bucket hats, team? I am… like, not sold? But Quinn is making a deeply compelling case here? A lot to think about.


Hey boo! You know, my mental health is a little iffy these days, but honestly, I think the return of the sun is really helping? Thanks for asking!


🎶 I will be your father figure, I have had enough of crime, I will be the one who loves you, until the end of time 🎶 (Sorry but if I have to have it stuck in my head, you do too.)


Look. Janelle looks incredible, we know this. BUT the shape, color and rimlessness of these sunglasses??? I am very, very worried about the resurgence of the early aughts into our fashion, and we should keep an eye on it!!


*passes away*


Not to be like, super gay, but this has been on my mind: what do we think Niecy smells like? Just… wondering for science, you know?


They wrapped the last season of Pose! 🥺 (full disclosure, I googled “bottom emoji” for that.)


Obviously I am going to celebrate the shit outta Samira making back selfies a thing.


This is so sweet?? Celebrate the people you love and respect!


Okay, gotta wrap this up and find exactly that cheesey treat to enjoy for myself see you!!!
