Gigi, always an innovator, going jet black. Of course, I suppose it’s less dramatic to do the blonde at home dye job when you are a blonde.

💍💍 should I go blonde next? Or redhead?

Bella is leaving us on the edge of our seats with this one— most commenters are voting for red! I think she could pull off a season four Addison Forbes Montgomery very well.

𝘝. 𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘥: what in the heck is actually going on?! my mind runs around in circles trying to understand. there’s random times i cry (like dead ass sobbing) for all the people we have lost, will loose or on the way because of this virus and how helpless i can’t do more… there’s other times I go down rabbit holes on youtube – watching communities around the world coming together, healthcare workers talking about their success stories or watching extremely funny videos of pets clearly getting sick of humans being home for too long. ⁣ ⁣ so, it’s been indeed an emotional roller coaster personally, but I do have to say that I am pretty lucky to be able to distance myself in a home of my own, food in the kitchen, and a nice comfy bed. taking it day by day, but staying indoors keeping myself and everyone safe. ⁣ ⁣ welcome to my self-portrait chronicles during this distancing. my state of mind⁣⁣ .⁣ qué es lo que está pasando?! La mente mía está tratando de entender. alguna veces yo vuelo, pero que lloro lloro por todos a las personas que han fallecido, estar por fallecer, o está en el camino dos fallecer con este virus y me siento triste por ellos y que yo no personalmente puedo hacer nada… hay otra veces cuando me pongo a ver Videos de comunidades en el mundo ayudándose uno al otro, médicos o enfermera hablando de pacientes que se han curado, o videos chistosos de animales que está cansados que nosotros estamos en casa por tanto tiempo. ⁣ ⁣ para mí todo esto ha sido una montaña rusa de emociones. pero al final del día, estoy Super agradecida que tengo una casa adonde vivir, comida en la nevera, y una cama que parece que duermo en el cielo. lo estoy cogiendo una vez al día. ⁣ ⁣ bienvenidos a mi fotos chronicles en esta epoca. mi estado de mente.⁣⁣ —⁣ image description: three photo chronicles and all three photos I am laid on my bed, in my black underwear watching or typing on my computer. my face and some of the photos I look worried or bored. In the background you see a frame with two fishes, sleeping mask on the door handle, and a big shelf on the far right.

Self portrait chronicling is something I always want to do but forget?

A classic thirst trap pose and a deeply relatable series of activities.

IFTAR: DESI VEG TACO TUESDAY. Been wanting to make one of my favorite desi dishes — KEEMA — but vegetarian. I don’t eat a lot of meat alternates but this was so good. Keema is a garam masala-forward kind of dish. And as my mother instructed, we used whole garam masala. We made #kachumar which is like a desi salsa and #masala pickledonions and served w/ fresh cilantro and ginger then got some #tandoori #rotis to eat it with. And bc it’s iftar, we made it extra special with some homemade #fruitchaat and #aloo #samosas. Dates and Lemon Water not pictured. #ramadan #muslim #lgbtq #iftar #fasting #ramzan #breakingfast #dinner #tacotuesday #thekitchn #f52community #f52gram #f52food #eattheworld #castiron #beyondmeat #eattheworld #desi #keema #vegetarianmeals

I am jealous of anyone who is still cooking, I lost the motivation sometime after unloading the dishwasher for the 3,023,324th time.

Real talk I tried to imitate this pose after seeing this photo and I felt DUMB and did not look anywhere near this charming. Mileage may vary!

Do you think I can get this sketch of Holland Taylor blown up to wall sized for my home? I….need it.

I have a lot to say about these women, first of all there wouldn’t be a @vida_starz without them, or at least it wouldn’t have run so smoothly, had the resources that it had, and looked, felt and sounded as lush as it did without them. They were my lifeline. My teachers. My guides. My sounding boards. My support system. My shoulders to cry on. My partners in crime. My friends and my sisters. They stay deeply behind the scenes by design when they are pulling all the levers and strings. They are #vidastarz ‘s producers and I love them. Truly love them. And it is my biggest wish in the world that we get to do it again. That we get to nurture a world into existence all over again. @rjs28 @slanghoff

  1. I dyed my hair purple and it helps me feel queer enough even when I don’t know what to wear because of gender feelings. Also, I had the expected reaction from my mum seeing anything I do in queerantine: “oh no”
