The Story of Pinky & Pretty
“Whose your hot pink haired friend?”
A question that will follow me till the day my “hot pink haired friend” changes her hair to another badass color. Just for reference, her name is Madeline.
Not only is her outside appearance colorful and beautiful, her personality is just the same. She’s full of life and beauty all around.
How Madeline and I became friends was written by the vagina gods as the most girly story of all time. No really, it’s actually pretty ridiculous.
It was a couple years back, and I was in my early 20’s “punk rawk” stage of life. Bright red hair, pierced everywhere. As you can imagine, my wardrobe store of choice was Hot Topic.
Well, Madeline worked at a local Hot Topic. Every time I would go in and buy an outfit, we would both be weirded out that she just bought the exact same one the day before. This happened multiple times. So we decided to become Facebook official friends and hang out.
It turns out we had a lot more in common than clothes and bright hair. We loved the same music, Halloween and she even preferred Backstreet Boys over N’Sync (which is always a win in my book).
And as everyone on my social media knows, the rest was history! A best friendship was born! I had finally met a girl who was just as weird as me!
Last weekend we had her boyfriend Red take some pictures of us. It had been awhile since I had done any modeling, so it was nice to get back into it! I needed a break though, I was starting to burn out. I’m very lucky for all the opportunities I get, but I’m also balancing a job and real life relationships. It gets hard.
Enjoy! And love yourself enough to dare to be different. The one thing I admire about Madeline the most is her confidence in herself. She’s not sorry for being a bright haired girl whose into nerdy things. She’s her, and who she is… is be-you-tiful! Like you!
