How beautiful is this? This is on a corner in the French market in NOLA. The bottom half is a pizza parlor and the top half is the living space for the owners. My husband is IN LOVE with this space. Maybe because.... pizza 😋😋😋 Or maybe because of the old timey, vintage feel and of course the location. I feel like someway, somehow we belong in this city. Something about it makes me feel like its home to us and this past visit I felt a strong need to stay. Maybe because our trip was a little more in depth and in tune with society and the environment. Maybe because we saw poverty but happiness at the same time. Maybe because we saw and heard so many acts of kindness and human to human gestures that literally brought tears to our eyes. As time goes by my heart longs for more meaning. For more ways to contribute. I’ll keep praying on it but in the mean time I’ll keep pictures and happiness and god next to me to lead us in the right direction. Isn’t this location BEAUTIFUL?!?!
Smoke Break on Chartres Street 2019 I turned onto Chartres from Canal and came across this gathering outside the parking garage of the New Orleans Marriott. After I fired the shutter, the chef with the beard flashed me a kind smile that told me he was probably a good boss to have in a hot and hectic New Orleans kitchen.
It’s time for another real ass talk with Amanda I weighed 141 lbs here- and I thought I was so fuckin fat I refused to get in the pool at the @thebtcshow and I never posted this photo. It’s been a year since then and I’ve gained 60 lbs. Stress combined with horrible eating (and drinking) habits have led me to some serious weight gain but tbh I am mentally MUCH STRONGER than this skinny hoe right here. I’ve moved to a new city, and am about to open a new salon. I went swimming so much at @premiere_orlando I got an ear infection. I hated the way I looked so much I considered getting every surgery in the book. I’m not happy with the way I look now, but I’m proud of myself for throwing my money at my dreams instead of my problems. The Amanda of this photo cared way too much about what other people thought, and the opportunities she would miss if she wasn’t beautiful enough. The Amanda of today knows that hard work can EARN you those opportunities, and that it feels much better to be picked for something because you’ve worked for it rather than because you are pretty. The beauty industry can be a tough place to be when you see beautiful people getting back to back opportunities that you would kill for- but everyone’s journey is different. Put in the work and your time WILL come. I’ll get back to looking like this girl one day, but it’ll be because I value my health, not the opinions of others. ALSO WHO THE FUCK IS GETTING IN THE POOL WITH ME AT @thebtcshow in August?!?!?!?!?
