CANCER QUEEN

by Rachel Lynch


Cancer season is officially underway, and I kicked it off big time. Last weekend, I had a huge barbie-themed birthday party with all my friends! It was especially cool because everyone dressed up.

My actually birthday was Monday, and I had a beyond lovely time at the Williamsburg Hotel in brooklyn.

Tomorrow I leave for Paris, so perhaps, it’s fair to say it’s the most wonderful (emotional) time of the year.

BOO PALA LONDON

by Rachel Lynch


I was gifted this beautiful dress recently from Boo Pala. It’s divine, it’s the kind of romance goth I feel like I was born to be. My dad called this look “steam punk” which I think is pretty spot on. I’ve always liked looking like the girl backstage, “almost famous” vibes.

summer in the city

by Rachel Lynch


the memory of who i was slipped away as soon as i left. this month will be ten years since i moved away from my childhood home, six in new york.

i’ve never had a problem letting my past slip away, the person i was left in the night.

she was replaced by dreams of what could be, a life that would someday be mine.

sometimes now, it feels like i have that life. just a little. a soho loft, long blonde hair, the freedom to make art whenever i please, talented friends.

i guess though, i never doubted myself. that’s why it worked so well. there was never the palpable risk of failure, i was too persistent for that.

i hope the slew of social media i press into my eyeballs every day doesn’t take that from me.

and when i start to feel the doubt creep in, i set down my phone.

i return back into this life i have created for myself, this beautiful reality in all it’s dimensional glory.

and i know that it is enough.

the virgin suicides

by Rachel Lynch


watching movies with the sound off. dreaming you were somewhere else but you’re right here.

it’s so magical, but your head’s in the next moment and it’s like you were never even here.

i’m far away from you, but always with you. i dance in your mind, my smile replays softly. you remember me in pictures, soft and pastel like. creamy around the edges, child-like, a bubble pops in your heart.

but i am not yours, and you are not mine.

we are more creative that way.

i like making art to the idea of you, miss making love to the feel of you.

some things never really end, you are in my sound.

my morning and evening inspiration, the light in the day and the pull of pleasure at night.

forever yours,

xx

forgetting to document the good stuff, every minute counts.

light rush to my head, i don’t know what to say anymore.

holding back is getting harder, the air is getting warmer.

i want you by my side all the time.
