When you broke into my home, it never felt like mine again. I can’t even let a lover in without being sick. It’s too heavy to carry your guilt. I’m setting it down. I’m tired of decorating this place with your shame as if it belongs to me. It’s too much to walk around with what your hands have done if it’s not my hands that have done it. The truth comes to me. Suddenly, after years of rain, the truth comes like sunlight pouring through that open window. It takes a long time to get here, but it all comes full circle. ~ Rupi Kaur @rupikaur_
Do you know how many people tried to tell me who I should be? How I should behave? What I should wear? You can’t define me with one word. You can’t put me in a small little box. Thank you @lorealmakeup for always supporting my feminist and very opinionated self. Thank you for standing up for women by my side and showing girls that they can be themselves! I am #daring#powerful#true#unapologetic#unique#free You are never gonna stop me.
When I started modeling almost a decade ago, all I wanted to do was create art, and strong images that would stick to your head.. like those black and white photos of Audrey Hepburn. There’s a few interviews where I mention how powerful an image can be and how it can make you feel things that weren’t there before. Like in a movie. But oh dear, times have changed so much and I am barely keeping up with this new technology world. All I can say is that I’m still here. Not for the fame or the followers, but for the art.. and every now and then I bump into someone who’s just like me.
I used to be the youngest child out of 3. Now I’m the 3rd out of 4. Welcome to the family my sweet little Mel. So proud of my mom and dad for adopting and for being my heroes! Eu era a caçula de 3 crianças, agora eu sou a número 3 de 4 crianças! Bem vida a família mel. E parabéns pra mim mãe e pai por adorarem, e por serem meus heróis ! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Live a conscious life! We have access to so much information. We know how our clothes are made and how fast we get over them and how harmful they are for our mother 🌏 Make conscious choices! Buy pieces that you love and will wear for decades, and not just twice. And DONT THROW IT IN THE BIN. Give away to someone in need! YOU HAVE OPTIONS! Organic, bio clothes, might be a little more pricey but will also last you much longer. Think about what you are buying. Be conscious! Don’t hurt our mother 🌏
