A rock.

 

What is a vivid memory of yours from growing up in LA?

 

There was a bank robbery next to my elementary school and all of us were on lockdown well into the afternoon. Charlton Heston’s grandson was in the grade above me.

Enjoying the company of those that I love.

Frederikke Malle perfume, my boyfriend, success.

Still figuring that out.

Letting someone down :(
