Welcome to Lana Parrilla’s 2017 birthday project!

Official Twitter - twitter.com/embraceforlana


This year me and my friend decided to come up with something to all of Lana’s fans, the Evil Regals.


A couple months ago, Lana posted a picture on Instagram where she was using no make up. She also had her natural hair showing up. When she did this, she inspired lots of people to do the same, and it was beautiful. Seeing so many people accepting themselves as they are, opening themselves like that was amazing, and that’s what this project is gonna be about. The project is called Embrace The Natural You because that’s exactly what we are gonna do. We’re gonna take pictures using no make up and put it together on a video. (if you want to, you can show your natural hair too).

We’re gonna show her how brave she is for showing herself by showing her ourselves. We’re gonna show her how special she is and how special we are. This project is also a challenge. There are lots of times when I don’t feel beautiful enough, when I don’t feel beautiful at all.

This project is gonna challenge you all to accept yourselves, because you are beautiful, no matter what anyone says.

This project is about you finding strength, it’s about you raising your head and believing you are incredible, you’re everything. It’s about increasing your self-steem and about becoming yourself.

Above everything, it’s about making you smile.
And dear, I would love to see you smile. And I bet Lana would love it too.

So if you’re interested in joining the project, please read the instructions carefully.

1. WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?

- You need to take a picture of yourself using NO make up and no filter. Wash your face, smile and that’s it. If you feel like showing your natural hair, you can do it too.

ATTENTION: take the picture in HORIZONTAL POSITION. We won’t accept pictures in vertical position. Example:


2. WHERE DO I SEND IT? AND HOW? UNTIL WHEN

- Send your picture to the e-mail embracingforlana@gmail.com with the subject EMBRACE THE NATURAL YOU. The deadline is JULY 1ST. You have until the FIRST DAY of July to send your picture. It gives you almost A MONTH, don’t be late.

3. WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ON THE E-MAIL?

- This is important! On the e-mail, please write:

. YOUR NAME
. YOUR AGE
. YOUR TWITTER USERNAME (if you have one)
. YOUR COUNTRY

EXAMPLE:

.GRETCHEN ODETE
.20 YEARS OLD
.@thefamousgretchen 
.BRAZIL

PS. I need you to write this information, otherwise I can’t identify you on the video.

I NEED IT TO BE IN ENGLISH OR PORTUGUESE!

If you don’t speak english or portuguese, please ask for someone to translate your e-mail for you! If you send it in another language, I will have a VERY hard time to put it all together.

4. I DON’T  WANNA SEND A PICTURE, CAN I JOIN IN IT IN ANY OTHER WAY?

- Unfortunatelly not. The project is all about pictures of your pretty faces.

5. I SHIP SWANQUEEN. I SHIP OUTLAWQUEEN. I SHIP GOLD-

- Your ship doesn’t matter. Not right now. This is a ship free thing, this is ALL about YOU and LANA. I’m tagging the ships on the post only to make it easier to find.

6. I’M NOT FEELING CONFIDENT, I’M UGLY, I HATE MYSELF.

- As Lady Gaga said once: “I’m beautiful in my way, I was born this way”. You’re beautiful. Don’t think for even a second that you’re less than that. If you need encouragement, here it is: YOU. ARE. PERFECT. So please, don’t let your insecurity keep you from joining this beautiful project. Do it for yourself, do it for us, do it for Lana.

7. IS LANA EVEN GONNA SEE IT?

Yes, I can guarantee that. The only thing I can’t ensure you is either she’s reacting or not.

8. I HAVE A DOUBT THAT YOU HAVEN’T SOLVED, HELP!

- You can tweet me: twitter.com/berry_sck or my friend who also happens to be called Letícia twitter.com/mayormillls  - we’re gonna solve any doubts you have. You can also send us an e-mail in the address I gave you before: embracingforlana@gmail.com or message twitter.com/embraceforlana

-

Well, that’s it. I hope you all like it! Please spread the word to the world, ask your friends to join and embrace the natural you!
