๐Ÿ’ซ Diana Huntley ๐Ÿ’ซ  Finding the magic in the mundane. Looking for a little extraordinary. ๐ŸŒด aussie actress in #LosAngeles ๐ŸŒ wanderer ๐Ÿ’Œ champagnetwilight@gmail.com

Just another day, that started out like any other ๐ŸŒŠ โ†  You never know which days are going to be the most meaningful days of your life, so smile, something beautiful is coming ๐Ÿ’™

So I havenโ€™t posted about this here - but offline, Iโ€™ve been telling everyone who will listen how much I LOVED the film @crazyrichasians.
.
Not just because itโ€™s crazy funny, but itโ€™s one of the few films I relate to on a deeply personal level - not only does it have an all-Asian cast, but it portrays Singaporean culture while tackling the experience of the Asian diaspora.
.
Seeing films likes this opens young people of diverse background up to possibility. Please go support films like this! Because films where a diverse cast such as this are shown in roles of power and desirability show young Asian-Americans that being who they are is enough, that they can be comfortable in their own skins - that their body, their face, is enough.
.
The first time I saw an Asian woman in a leading role on TV (when I was 17 years old) was the first time I even considered a career in acting to be a possibility. Prior to that I had a misconception that to be portrayed in media, you had to look a certain way, and that was not like me. . .
.
Iโ€™m not the only one with this experience, and being a part of a new media landscape where I am more welcome and see people of all kinds making waves has been such a gratifying and thrilling experience so far, and I wouldnโ€™t give it up for anything in the world. ๐Ÿ’›

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And everything you do
Yeah, they were all yellow ๐ŸŒŸ

Remind yourself that itโ€™s ok to have big dreams, even though you canโ€™t see the entire road to get there now.

Where you were last year, the year before that, 5 years ago? Did you know you would be here? Remember how far youโ€™ve come ๐Ÿ’™

Hashtag eating healthy.

Not pictured: the salad I had for lunch ๐Ÿ˜‹

We go together like strawberries and cream ๐Ÿ“โค๏ธ (I completely recognise Iโ€™m actually holding a raspberry, but Iโ€™m saving the strawberries for last ๐Ÿ™ƒ)

Hey there September,
shower me with verdant dreams
walk me through a waterfall
itโ€™s always summer somewhere in the world ๐ŸŒฟ
.
Can you believe weโ€™re already 2/3 through the year?

Dear summer 2018, you have been one of my favourite summers yet โ˜€๏ธ August had been a little stressful for me, but finishing strong, so excited for the cooler weather thatโ€™s coming. Best summer memory so far?

P.S. Pumpkin spice latte season is starting early this year, tomorrow actually ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Forgetting gets easy where the milk and honey run
And the sense grows sharp off the fruit of an island sun ๐ŸŒบ โ€ Flashback to paradise โ€

So just lay back and wait for it to come
Le paradis nous trouvera toujours oรน nous sommes ๐ŸŽถ

What habits do you implement to keep yourself happy, healthy and grounded?
.
Whenever stress or overwhelm starts to creep in, I take stock of the little daily or weekly habits that cumulatively allow me to be my best self.
.
That could include a daily gratitude practice, journaling, having a bath time ritual, gym time...or treating myself to something sweet - that may or may not be a guilty pleasure habit, but everything in moderation ๐Ÿ™ƒ
.
Side note: These sugar cookies from @coffeedosecm are seriously good though. ๐Ÿฌ

Throwback to this day exploring, featuring the Game of Thrones theme song played on repeat for two hours because someone was having a GoT themed wedding - and all I could think was:
โ‚ 1. I love how television and the worlds created by artists can have such a deep impact on peoplesโ€™ lives, and .
โ‚ 2. ...Iโ€™m doomed to involuntarily hum this song the entire way home ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Sunshine on my mind โ˜€๏ธ
Wanted to quickly introduce myself to the new faces here - hey Iโ€™m Diana, Iโ€™m an Aussie girl living in LA.
.
5 quick facts:
โœญ
1. I lived in NYC by myself for almost a year in my late teens at a full-time acting conservatory. I had no idea how to โ€œadultโ€ back then, but it was one of the best years of my life. ๐ŸŒƒ
โœญ
2. My craziest travel experience to date is mud-wrestling in Bali, which culminated with a giant duck standing on my head. ๐Ÿฆ†
โœญ
3. Dessert is my vice. I should be banned from the ice cream aisle. ๐Ÿฆ
โœญ
4. I secretly think it would be really cute if my cat Bagel had a friend called Cream Cheese (donโ€™t tell @j.w.albert ๐Ÿ˜†)
โœญ
5. I actually much prefer winter and the snow, but summer is growing on me. ๐Ÿ’›

Would love to know about you guys too so feel free to comment/DM me to introduce yourself :)
