Meet my big little sister, Malia Audrey Banks

Tonight, my sister Malia came over, bearing gifts of pizza and soda and offered to help me finish up my bedroom and pack for my Paris trip. She’s 3 years younger than me and nearly 4 inches taller than me, hence why I call her my big little sister. It’s always been us, Ny and Lia, since the day she was born on October 21st, 20 years ago. We’re close than ever, she’s my confidant and my biggest motivation. She always says she looks up to me, and that’s what keeps me going. I would of never finished my room without her help, she’s an interior design major and helped me a lot with purchasing decorations and picking a theme. Plus she’s taller  so having her hang up stuff was an advantage. I haven’t seen her in a while, first she was in Toronto and then she was in Amsterdam with friends, and I’ve missed her dearly. We both had so much to catch up on and even when all I do is confess my troubles, she’s the best listener and helps get me out of my own head. 

I love you, Lia, the best sister I could ever ask for.

PSA: Robin’s extra busy

Nothing’s wrong, but we’re getting ready to go on a very time-consuming vacation (we leave next week), and I’ve been super busy getting everything ready to go.  Add the insanity of having a 7 month old and 6 month old puppy in the house, and you can imagine that my tumblr and writing time has sort of vanished.

(Things might be better if my fellow supervisor hadn’t chosen last week to go on vacation, I can hardly complain about that.  It does mean I’ve been going into work early to cover a bunch of his stuff on 1st shift, though, so that’s even less free time).

Bottom line: I’ll get at least one chapter of A Different Fate up this week, but I suspect it will be only one.  Then there won’t be a chapter the week after, since I will be in the Land of Crap Internet, and then there will probably be only one the week after that, since I’ll just have finished a 900 mile drive for  my normal Tuesday update, and I’ll probably be beyond fried.  But I’ll be back on schedule after that!

The Model Series #56 Photoshoot (Magazine Article)

Harry: “[Y/N] shows up for our interview at her favorite local restaurant wearing chic maternity wear in the form of jeans and a peasant blouse. Her hair is tied up in a topknot and she carries all her supplies in a stylish ‘23′ tote bag. She orders without needing a menu–a caesar salad and french fries with mustard on the side. “I’ve always loved this meal even before I was pregnant!” She laughs. It’s really quite easy to see why everyone in the free world is currently obsessed with [Y/N], her easy smile and disarming laugh. Harry most of all! “He never likes to leave me alone now,” she laughs. “Now that we’re having this baby he never wants me to get up or do anything for myself. I had to force him to let me walk to the store and get my own snacks the other day! I mean, I need some exercise!” All joking aside, [Y/N] can’t stop raving about Harry throughout the interview, and her face lights up when he texts her. Clearly their relationship is built to last, and this baby will have parents very much in love with each other. Headline reads:[Y/N] [Y/L/N] Talks Pregnancy Cravings, Redecorating, and Harry in Her Tell-All Interview in This Month’s Harpers Bazaar!” 

Louis: “Our sources tell TMZ that [Y/N] [Y/L/N] and boyfriend Louis Tomlinson are taking things to the next step! The duo reportedly bought a 3 million dollar mansion Los Angeles, California where [Y/N]’s modeling contract is based. This is after the two already bought a penthouse together in London and is certainly a step we never expected from Tomlinson, who was together with girlfriend Eleanor Calder for five years before breaking it off–they were never even close to living together! Sources tell us that Louis just can’t stop smiling, that he is quote ‘happier with [Y/N] than ever before–he’s even started referring to her as Mrs. Tomlinson and knows that their relationship will last forever.’ We wish all the luck in the world to the happy couple in decorating their new mansion! Tweet from @[Y/T/N] “Started painting today. Got more paint on each other than we did on the walls!” Headline Reads: “Tomlinson and [Y/L/N] Heat Things Up: Buy A Multi-Million Dollar Mansion Together” 

Zayn: “Well file this one under ‘Things We Never Thought Would Happen’! Our Gossip! Insider just leaked this photo–a behind-the-scenes look at an engagement photoshoot between [Y/N] and Zayn Malik! The One Direction singer and über-famous supermodel have enjoyed a very public relationship over the past two years and now, they’re tying the knot! Malik popped the question at Central Park and the two are taking some definite steps towards heading down the aisle….steps might we add Zayn and former-flame, Little Mix crooner Perrie Edwards never took! ‘She just makes me extremely happy….I know I’m the luckiest guy in the world.’ Malik is quoted as saying. [Y/N] is over the moon too–and we can’t wait to see what this stylish couple is wearing as they make their eternal vows!” Headline Reads: “Leaked Engagement Photo from Zayn and [Y/N]!”

Niall: “[Y/N] [Y/L/N], supermodel extraordinaire, recently received a joint cancer diagnosis. The blonde beauty has been in and out of several surgeries ever since, with family members and doting boyfriend Niall Horan there every step of the way. Today [Y/N] was scheduled for another surgery, and a video leaked of her in the operating room dancing to ‘Roar’ by Katy Perry. ‘It just pumps me up you know? It’s a great song…makes me feel strong!’ [Y/L/N] has said in past interviews. Her mood has seemingly remained unaffected by her terrible illness and we’re sure a lot of it comes from the supportive team she has around her. We’re told Horan even cancelled important meetings and tried to quit the lad’s newest tour due to [Y/N]’s illness, but that the supermodel herself forced him to go. A hospital worker speaking anonymously told us that Niall Skypes with [Y/N] for ‘hours’ at a time, ‘every single day, he never misses a day’. Good luck to [Y/N] fighting this terrible disease, our hearts are with her.” Headline Reads: “[Y/N] [Y/L/N] Shows Cancer Who’s Boss In This Heartwarming Clip”

Liam: “The holiday season is long-gone but we us here at Perez Hilton just got a MAJOR scoop! [Y/N] and Liam, of One Direction, have been turning us all into that heart-eyes emoji with their cuteness ever since their relationship started, but this one might just take the cake! [Y/N] and Liam sent out personalized Christmas cards this past holiday to friends and family and one of those lucky recipients was nice enough to forward it along to us! In the cute photo, [Y/N] and Liam are standing on what looks to be a Brooklyn street nearby [Y/N]’s apartment (which, btw, cost a reported 4 million!). Liam clearly can’t keep his hands, or his lips, off [Y/N]–cheekily popping a kiss on the beaming model’s cheek. The two are holding hands and a sign that reads ‘Merry Christmas’. What do you think….is sending out Christmas cards together old fashioned or still totes acceptable?” Headline Reads: Payne and Supermodel [Y/N] Caught in a Holiday Lip-Lock: See the Exclusive Pic!”
