Writer's block. Grrrrr. Need my mentors to inspire me. Turn off the TV, Nadine. Stop cuddling with the dogs, Nadine. Put away the snacks, Nadine. Just sit down and write. Oh, and stop posting on Instagram!Play video
@briflys there's always something.
My dad and my cousin @jennitrangle say that I look more relaxed these days. By this picture I'd have to agree, but my mind still gets overly busy at times. Time to calm down some more. Today I will attempt a hardcore meditation hour. Namaste, everyone!
For the past few years, I've spent the majority of my time either at my desk or in a yoga studio, meaning you would mostly find me bare feet in sweat pants. For 2016, I started doing some spring cleaning and getting rid of unused clothing items, when suddenly the fashion bug bit me again. Instead of donating it all, I am now trying to breathe new life into these gems. Usually, I wear heels only for special events, but nowadays I find myself reaching for them more and more. I gotta say , even with the associated "pain" I really do love how I look and feel...Read more
It's safe to say that I'm a huge fan of Ernest Hemingway. Through his works, I realized that we don't all have to be such flowery writers, and that short simple prose can have a strong effect on the reader. The use of detail is minimal, but when employed it becomes very powerful. I used to be very self-conscious about my limited vocabulary, because English isn't my native tongue (German and Vietnamese are). Growing older, I have now come to accept my short comings as strengths. Sent via @planogr.am #planyourgrams
Was photographing my studly husband, when the tables turned and he took a few snaps of me. I will post portraits I take of people in the near future, but until then, enjoy my mug! Selfies and Instagram portraiture have always fascinated me. There's something narcissistic about it, but also creatively freeing. Selfies are self-expression, a label usually only reserved for "art", and in this day and age it's available to everyone at the press of a button. Remember when we would put up posters of our favorite singers or actors? Now there's a way to...Read more
Motivation Monday: Need to finish my revisions and work on soooo many projects! Every day is Monday for me. Always so full of false starts and doubt that I'm writing junk! Grrrr! #josephheller
Hello world! To combat writer's block, which cripples me often, I will begin to collect ways to keep inspiration going on this Instagram and on a reimagined and newly improved blog. It will combine my writing/film journey, yoga musings, and some fashion and lifestyle tidbits. I will also share excerpts of screenplays and short stories. In the next few weeks you'll witness a few social media transformations, but know that at the core I'm still just good ole Nadine, who is an optimist, who still loves her sriracha, and who continues to laugh and cry about t...Read more
Happy viewing! I look forward to meeting you all!
