Day twelve, the final day of the healing process ✨ If you swipe through you’ll see my brows prior to microblading and then fresh ombré brows by @jessiedillon_ . Initially they were quite dark and it was intimidating but I was assured they’d fade and settle in. It was so much faster than I thought and after the first pass totally painless. If you want to see the full healing process I highlighted it on my page. I’ve had some terrible patchy natural brows, some over plucked scene brows and some even worse square black hardcore girl brows so to wake up in the morning and already be set has been wildly helpful. Call it shallow or whatever you like, but I had braces to make me feel better about shitty teeth and now I feel better about shitty brows ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
You & me forever
Oh no mom’s had some drinks
Hello, these are my children. I’m going to be making a foray back into blogging in the next couple of months with the launch of the @olderghosts website. I’ll be talking about home and personal styling and also sharing some of the work I’ve done on our house in order to take it from a bland 2000’s model house to an actual home with character #thrifttildeath
Today @jay_maas is working with @circus_trees, three sisters aged 12, 14 and 16 making REALLY good alternative music. What the hell were you doing at that age? Nothing this cool I bet, so check them out. We need more women in music always and most of us don’t have this kind of guts ever let alone in our early teens. I’m so excited for what I’m hearing today to reach it’s polished stage so I can force feed it to everyone around me.
I’m thankful to have @jemrichards as one of my best friends and also personal photographer because now I can still post good photos on days when I feel like trash physically and mentally. Big hoops and a misshapen bun is my summer look for 2018 please ignore that it was also my winter look.
We don’t have a child that likes to sit and be read to, he doesn’t care much for TV unless there’s a drum beat or a dog, he’s not one to lay quietly and cuddle. We have a hurricane, a tiny perpetual motion machine that refuses to slow down or stop, that will climb and crawl and figure it out and is afraid of nothing. Sometimes I’m a little envious of people with kids that are relaxed and quiet and will happily entertain themselves with a puzzle, mine keeps me on my toes and I’m always exhausted. Then I see my little Bean figuring out how to stand on a skateboard and wanting to go like Dad, running for the biggest slide in view without fear, playing in the lake and taking in all of the plants and animals around him with interest and excitement and I look forward to the adventures we’re going to have. My fearless little bug, I may be tired today but in a few years we’re going to climb mountains together.
I feel like my followers doubled in the last month so hi hello how are you, here’s a get to know me. My name is Jessie and I’m 25 and live in suburban Massachusetts, previously I lived in Sydney 🇦🇺 and was a music industry workaholic with a bachelors degree in entertainment business management. One day I went to a bar when I was still straightedge (9 years and then I drank a beer at the Jawbreaker reunion) and met @jay_maas who was on tour, we fell mega in love and one time I came to visit and never went home. We got married and made a little dude called Dean that we only ever call Bean and just before he showed up we adopted a tubby asshole cat named Smudge. I accidentally started a vintage business (@olderghosts) in December and it’s taken over my whole life. I have bangs so of course I’m queer and I’ve been vegan half my life, I also used to strip and still dabble in sex work now and again. I’m on the *~bipolar spectrum~* and have a few other personality cracks we’ll refer to as fun quirks ✨I like cooking, hiking, building stuff from wood, home renovating and killing house plants in a slow Saw like manner. There’s all the dating profile basics for you, if you’d like to know anything else like my number of teeth or preferred shower gel, just let me know!
When you’re in a mood so @georgiarosedraws sends you a doodle of your boys and so you start your day off by snorting (she also does very excellent pet portraits that I have bought five of now)
@jemrichards out here making my family look like we’re straight outta an emo J Crew catalogue
I was going to make a joke about how this is how I always hang out in my kitchen but when I thought about it, it actually is. 📷 @jemrichards
I’m going to be spamming everyone for the next few weeks because aside from the shoot I did with @jemrichards for @amme_b_shop we also worked on a secret project for @olderghosts that’ll be dropping soon. Jem is a close friend of mine but the photos she’s taken of our family, of me at work and just for fun always floor me and I couldn’t recommend her more especially if you feel uncomfortable in front of a camera. NYC and surrounds give her a little love 💕
