We left the party together. Entwined. Tangled. Our skin cells becoming family. “Come back to my place”, he whispered. The air was freezing so smoke escaped with every syllable. Like a dragon who lost his flame. I wanted to reignite him. I said, “I don’t know”. I had read a Seventeen Magazine article on the Top 10 Things to Do on a First Date. Number 3 was “Go home alone on the first date". I read the list so many times, I could taste the smell from the pages. He said, “C’mon. I’m really into you.” Then he turned me around, moved a hair out my face and kissed me. I exhaled for what felt like the first time that day. Steam rushed out my nostrils in two separate directions. The words, “I’ll do anything you want” seemed a little clingy, so I played it safe and just nodded my head. Suddenly I was in the passenger seat of his car. He was playing “Redemption Song” by Bob Marley. How corny? At that point, the only thing whiter than him was the sheets I imagined him throwing me on. Before he stepped on the gas, there was a knock at my window. It was my best friend who invited me to the party. “Hey! I need you to come with me downtown! I left my ID at home and I need yours.” I gave him the look. The one that says, “Nigga, I’m about to get dicked down”. He started begging and pleading. Fuck. He did me a huge favor awhile back and I owed him. Plus, the Seventeen article flashed back on my taste buds. “Sorry, I have to go. Let me get your number”. He said “Sure!”, but an odd look appeared on his face. It wasn’t sadness. It wasn’t anger…but relief. He said he would text me in the morning. A reason to wake up. I opened my eyes and was already closed out of his life. I did something I never thought I’d do, I texted him saying that I wanted to hook up. I poured my heart out. Please don’t leave me. He was the one. I never wanted to see those words again. The next time I would see those words would be in the hands of a cheerleader from my high school. He had sent my text to all his friends. Apparently he had a bad acid trip that night. What do I do Seventeen? Tears covered her face from laughter. Tears covered my face from “laughter”. We both knew my life was a joke. LPCG
Happy Birthday, NELLY @derrtymo !
In 2001, Nelly burned rubber in this 1978 Pontiac #Firebird#TransAm for his “Ride Wit Me” Music Video. The song peaked at No. 3 on the @Billboard Hot 100 in the week of June 23, 2001. @billboardhiphop
Do you remember where you were when you heard this song play? 🎵

Our handsome friend @AntonioSabatoJr had #Forma treatments with us (as if he needed any help) and look at his results 😍 after only a few treatments!
Forma thermal contraction by #InMode is a quick and easy treatment for anyone's busy schedule; ⏱ you can be in and out in 10 minutes.
We hear 1️⃣ word all the time when talking about #skincare: Collagen! As we age our bodies produce less of it, which results in #finelines & #wrinkles, loss of elasticity, firmness & hydration.
I often recommend Forma treatments, an easy #noninvasiveprocedure that uses #radiofrequency thermal heat to contract the deep layers of skin. This treatment stimulates the formation of new collagen -- with NO PAIN or DOWNTIME. 🕺🏻🎉 You will immediately see your #skin become tighter & more elastic, which smooths away finelines & wrinkles, making you look younger. 😍🙌🏼
As the days get shorter and cloudier, it's the time where the plants go for a group huddle by the window and every space counts.
The plant I've been particularly excited about is the pilea 'Aquamarine' which is starting to billow and trail down. Plant curtain in the making!
And if you were curious where the String of Pearls lives from a few posts back, here it is. Tucked away behind the easel, getting full sun with a touch of protection with the plants in front of it 🌿🏠✨ #RegrowingStudioplants
