I’ve been away from this chosen family of mine for a year. This weekend we reunited. I got to meet some new faces and hear some new stories of heartbreak, successes, new healthy choices and milestones (a year of sobriety!) from the women who’ve since become a part of the @livefashionABLE tribe and are now turning their lives around as a result. We shared. We laughed. We cried. All the things. I am so proud of my framily for all they do to try and make the world a better more compassionate and female empowered place. 10 years of friendship. 10 years of partnership. 10 years since the birth of ABLE. One of the most meaningful and fulfilling parts of my life. I’m just so grateful. Here’s to 100000 more. ❤️
When the coffee kicks in after a 6am call on Sunday morning. 🧐 Also yes, my feet are on backwards.
A very worthy of your time and important watch.
I’m not sure what more I can say other than to aggressively agree with a heavy heart how devastating the lack of action to protect innocent people and children in a public space is. That weapons of mass destruction have no business in the hands of civilians - especially so of white supremacist terrorists. I’m so deeply sorry for how broken our country is right now. My goodness. • The House of Representatives passed a bill to require background checks on all gun sales. Now we need the Senate to act. Text CHECKS to 644-33 to be connected with your Senators and tell them to act on background checks. It takes only seconds. Follow @everytown & @momsdemand & @shannonrwatts to find ways to take action and get involved. Sending all my love. #GunReformNow #Vote
All new @drunkhistory tonight! You’re going to learn about Doug Hegdahl, played by @mrjoshcharles with @instahashi & @dantebasco told by the original narrator @markgags! And then the one and only Paget Brewster teaches us about Florence Nightingale played by ME with my favorite Queeeeen @idiotsivan! Annnd I got to reunite with my girl @aashadavis (FNL days)! This was a really fun one. Ps: @dw34 - the genius behind this whole operation - turned 40 today! Happy Birthday, friend! Let’s do it again real soon! 🍻
Hair color all touched up! Thank you, @tonypham_lacandco! 😘 @traceycunningham1 you were right, he’s definitely the best in the bizz in Toronto.
this was deeply beautiful on so many levels. wow. it’s on netflix. watch it.
“Love is real. You just have to find it on your own terms” Love my @chellamanart hoodie so much! Visit the link in his bio to see his collection with Opening Ceremony. 🤟🏽❤️🧡💛💚 (It’s a wig. These were taken at work)
Congrats @stingrayed on the release of your first trailer for Night Hunter (aka Nomis)! So excited. Loved working with you even though I slipped on black ice and busted my head open on my first day of work! 😳😂 Check your local listings, we’re out in most countries around the world this August and September.
this just about sums it up. so grateful for this lady and moments like this. that is all.
Never did I expect to feel so loved and celebrated while so far away from home on my birthday. I feel so lucky I don’t even know what to say other than thank you to my Toronto family. Especially you, @the_annadiop! You too @conorleslie. My heart is so full it hurts.
It’s that time of year again where I get to wish my @rebfef a happy birthday and tell as many people who will read this what a beautiful human she is. What a good, loyal, honest (sometimes too honest just kidding there’s no such thing ugh) and supportive friend she is. The best travel around the world partner she is. Always down for any adventure, rolls with whatever I throw at her and always makes everything ok no matter the mess. She is my rock. I love you so much, Fef. Happy Birthday to you. Also, come back to Toronto now please. And bring that elbow of yours! 👅😍🎂❤️ #505
You really know the difference between a colorist and a true artist when they’re able to take you from just about solid black to this. Had a liiiiittle accident with the hair color. Flew home for 48 hours and ran straight to my friend and hair magician, @traceycunningham1. She’s a unicorn of a human and even more so of talent. ❤️ you, Tracey! • Cut by my beloved @marktownsend1
Happy Birthday my sweetest most sensitive most talented with the make-up brush and most generous with the heart (and also happens to be the most talented baker there ever was), @makeupmatthew. The very first to paint my face and still going strong. I’m so grateful you were born and I love you muchly. 🎂❤️
Happy X-Men Day! Happy directorial debut release day to one of the most special and important people in my life! It’s finally here! I can’t wait for everyone to see the magic you made. Thank you for having me and allowing me to shadow you and learn from you. It’s pretty exciting to think that in this new space of directing, you’ve only just begun, my friend. I’m honored and feel very lucky that I got to bear witness to the very beginning of this new chapter for you. Proud of you, Bossy. You truly beautiful mutant you.
Happy Birthday to the brightest light there ever was. You light up any room you’re in and brighten any situation no matter how dark. You’re a constant lesson in positivity. You’re the absolute most funnest and you bring out the silly in all of us. I’m so grateful for you and your spirit in my life. You’re also the best damn cook (and teacher!) I know. I love you my little nugget. Freddy loves you too. Happy Birthday, @whatsgabycookin. 🎂❤️
tfw you discover your new side hustle #🎥👀 📷: @bigger_mountain
I believe that Phoebe Waller-Bridge may very well be one of the best thing that’s happened to television in a long time. I couldn’t have loved season 1 more. Season 2 is the most perfect string of 6 episodes maybe ever. Wow.
Happy Birthday, @yutsai88! The master teacher of how to take a sexy photo. I’ll never forget how nervous I was and how hard you worked at making me feel empowered and comfortable in my skin. ❤️🎂 (this was a long time ago!)
When I was younger I had an abortion. It was the smartest decision I could’ve made, not only for myself & my boyfriend at the time, but also for this unborn fetus. For a baby to’ve been born to two people — too young and completely ill equipped — with no means or help from family, would have resulted in a child born into an unnecessary world of struggle. Having a baby at that time would have only perpetuated the cycle of poverty, chaos and dysfunction I was born into. Forcing a child to be born to a mother who isn’t ready, isn’t financially stable, was raped, a victim of incest (!!), isn’t doing that theoretical child any favors. For those of you insisting abortion is murder, and to Rep. Terri Collins who said “an unborn baby is a person who deserves love and attention” — forget bringing up the mother might be in need of some “love and attention.” What do you think happens to these kids who end up bouncing around in foster care, live on government assistance because the mother has no help, can’t afford childcare while she works a minimum wage job, and is trapped in a cycle of trying to survive on the meager government assistance so many of you same pro-lifers are determined to also take away. If you insist on forcing women to carry to term, why do you refuse to talk about comprehensive sex-ed, the maternal mortality rate, free daycare, paid maternity leave? Our lives, traumas & family planning is for no one to decide but us. Certainly not a group of old white men. Speaking of men... With all this punishment for women I wonder where all the punishment is for the men in this scenario. By looking at the photo of all the men who are making this mess, I find it hard to believe that if it were the autonomy of a man's body, health and life in question, I cant help but be certain we wouldn’t be having this conversation in the first place. I appreciate seeing men speak up on this issue - women do not get pregnant alone. Lest we forget, outlawing abortion has never stopped women from attempting it. @abortionfunds @yellowfund & @EmergeAmerica @emilys_list @runforsomethingnow who work 2 elect pro-choice candidates. #YouKnowMe
oh hello spring time almost forgot your beauty I’m so glad you’re here #ShesAHaiku 🌸

If you wanna see the best chef in all the land, Mr @chefludo himself teach me (us) how to make a Quiche Lorraine there’s a lil swipe up action in the ol’ story. We may or may not have burnt the first quiche. Fun times for sure. Thank you, Chef!!! 👨🏼🍳👩🏽🍳
Happy Birthday to our Wonder Girl!!! Cheers to you on this day you gorgeous tall drink of water and breath of fresh air on a hot summers day! We are all so lucky to know you and to know you is to love you madly...especially your boyfriend Fred! 🎂
Happy Happy Birthday my sweetest Mandizzle!! I love you very much and wish I were there to celebrate you today. Alas, I am sending you all the goo and birthday hugs and kisses from afar. ❤️
When you find out last min that José González and The String Theory are playing just a few days after you’d just seen them in another city you grab the last 3 tickets available and bring your friends so you can watch them experience it for their first time. It’s more than a concert, it’s an experience. Also, sitting in the very last row might be just as special as the first. Ok thank you byyyyeeee.
Jose Gonzales with The String Theory is always a good idea.
Going into season 2 liiiiike...
To the best story teller, the funniest, the man who knows everything about everything we didn’t even know we needed to know about, the most loyal, the one you want around when you need a pick me up, best game night host there ever was, most generous, mane man extraordinaire and friend for so many years I’ve decided to stop counting, Happy Birthday, @marktownsend1. I love you the whole universe. 🎂❤️
this guy and his underbite 🐗
My beloved @thefefco ( @rebfef) produced her very first, very important documentary @runningwithbeto that premiered at @sxsw to a standing ovation yesterday. I’m so bummed I couldn’t be there in person to support her but my goodness am I so damn proud of her and how hard she’s worked on this. Go Fef Go!! 💚💚💚💚💚
These were taken by my friend @annstreetstudio. Her images and self portraits are what I imagine poetry would look like if words didn’t exist. She is a master and a goddess behind and in front of the camera. I’m grateful she chose to see me through her magic lens that day. ✨
Thinking of my momma. Her spirit. Her heart. Thinking of how vulnerable we are to our surroundings. How we are raised. I think of her innocence and naïveté. I think of despite how dark things might be that you can still shine such a light and what a crime it is to ever be so misunderstood. How much that hurts. To be taken for granted. For the people closest to you to not only fail to but refuse to see said light... Sometimes we learn the most important lessons the hard way - through loss and retrospection. If we’re lucky we‘re present and conscious every single day and love our loved ones while we have them. Even though, and even when, we think they’re wrong. If we’re really lucky we know before it’s too late that being right is inconsequential to the big picture. Love is all that matters. My goodness is that ever true. Love your beautiful mothers. They really are doing their best. Even if, by your standards, it isn’t good enough. #HappyInternationalWomensDay ✨
The way she says yeah at the end tho 😭 Happy #InternationalWomensDay So lucky and so grateful to not only get to go back to work with these two beautiful women in a few days but that they’ve become two of my closest and dearest friends. These sisters of mine. Lucky me. ❤️
