michelletrachtenbergEvery single day is #mothersday. This is my mom at age 3, she fought many battles to come to America so that her future daughters could thrive and live their dreams. Her strength and #love have been the foundation that my sister and I grew on making us the women we are today. Look at that 3 year old. She doesn't even know yet that she will create two bad ass bitches, cuz the apples don't fall far from the tree. Love you mom. Thank you. 💖
michelletrachtenbergI'm too sexy for this couch. Too sexy for this couch. So sexy it hurts. Cuz I'm a model you know what I mean and I do my little turn on the catwalk. Yeah, on the catwalk. #caturday from Mister Martini 😹🎩🍸
michelletrachtenbergThey call me Martini, Mister Martini. I enjoy long naps, hiding all of my toys, snacks and crime fighting of course. My mom says I'm too young to date, but romance waits for no one. Where my kitties at? 😻🎩🍸
IT'S A BOY! Welcome Mister Martini Trachtenberg. Weighing in at 1lb 5oz, this beautiful baby boy is happy and healthy and extra cuddly. Mama and baby are STAYING HOME to make sure everyone stays healthy. Martini is in his tuxedo and always ready, just like James Bond. #meowtini baby! #adoptdontshop 😻🎩🍸
michelletrachtenbergI'm reposting this photo for #flashbackfriday #throwbackthursday #sundayfunday cuz who the fuck knows what day it is. But I had clothes on, I had a martini and I am extremely #grateful #stayhome
michelletrachtenbergSo. My friend dared me to do something I'm afraid of while #socialdistancing. That would be a video of me singing, with no makeup, showing off my blonde eyebrows and eyelashes! I'm chillaxin during this quarantine. Catching up on cleaning, organizing and working/writing from home. If you're going to say something nasty in the comments because you don't like my messing up singing of June Carter's song. Fuck off. This is me being brave and vulnerable as we all are doing at this time. Now please excuse me, I'm late to make my boxed Mac n Cheese lunch. ❤️🧀 And yes. I have secret dimples. 😜
michelletrachtenbergHi. I have turned into a super cool cat during this staycation. I'm shouting out to Tweens, Millennials, Gen Z, idiots who think they are immune: read books, watch TV, put silly animal ears on your #selfie filter and protect our health care professionals who risk their lives to save ours everyday. #stayhealthy #stayhome #socialdistancing THIS IS REAL AND LET US ALL HEAL 🙏🏻😷
michelletrachtenbergOk. #stayhome #socialdistancing breathe. This is a photo from one of my favorite places @bigheartranch #flashbackfriday if you can donate to the ranch, it would be appreciated for all of their rescue animals. Soon we will be better we will hold hands again. #bestrong and enjoy boxed Mac & Cheese 🧀
michelletrachtenbergSo. It's valentines week.
Back in my day all the kids had to write a bullshit Valentine's Day card to everyone in the class. I never got one on purpose, everyone got a valentine card. No one ever gave me one and they thought I didn't need the attention. The kids and staff all laughed and thought everyone else should get one, being an actress since I was 3, apparently I didn't need one.
No one gave a thought I was helping my family pay bills. I was just the girl on the tv, it was just that their kid wasn't on tv.
This is challenging for me to post as people always contact me on social media saying oh my brother my sister went to school with you, you were best friends! False.
The kids were cruel. There is no need to harp on the past. But I still have scars from being thrown down stairs and slammed into lockers head first.
I write this to every child, teen, person, out there who is bullied. You are something. Do not put your value in someone else. Not letting them win, is your win.
So actually my valentines goes to three teachers who protected me and I think about to this day.
Mrs. Vollman (she let me eat lunch in her classroom so the kids wouldn't throw out my food or throw their food at me)
Mrs. Lighter (who helped me love learning and let me read books in her classroom)
Mr. Beckman (he saw I was a writer and challenged me, as a former college professor and wanted to see my writing succeed)
Thank you to you all. #Grateful for life.
@gregoryarlt & @jonlieckfeltbeauty decided to go with a power Hedy Lamarr menswear chic, #hair and #makeup look. Also #sustainablefashion my Armani jacket I've owned for ten years 💖
michelletrachtenberg#throwbackthursday To @kaiagerber and I on set. This was her first movie, she did a small cameo and she was brilliant and humble. Before runway shows & couture came a fabulously kind human raised by the amazing @cindycrawford and her husband Rande. Both #women beautiful inside and out! 💖
michelletrachtenbergToday I survived a grocery store trip during #thanksgiving week. I watched grannies fight over pies, moms screaming about gluten free gravy and grown men battling over the last challah loaf for their stuffing. Still emotionally scarred but #grateful. Gobble Gobble. 🦃
michelletrachtenbergThis #morning I took a moment to stop & smell the roses, and enjoy simple beauty in my home with the right amount of #decor drama. What are you #grateful for today? #bloom #sparkle 💋

Olivia is a baby goat @bigheartranch in Malibu. She likes long walks down the hill, grapes, head nuzzles and sitting on your lap. If Olivia is your type of lady, please follow @bigheartranch, #donate and #help keep this beautiful gal prancing in #love. ❤️
michelletrachtenbergI was so excited to be a part of the @metmuseum #metcameo next to one of my most favorite paintings. The most magical part was the private tour of the entire museum, after it was closed and the sun was setting. Check out my #instastory from my Private Night at the #Museum 🔮 #magic #art Today's #MetCameo comes from @michelletrachtenberg, who shared her love for the one and only Madame X:
"Madame X was considered scandalous, as was this painting. She did not listen to anyone who tried to put her down. She rose above the public bullying with internal strength. Because of her, we know the artistry of John Singer Sargent. She proved art is powerful and lives forever.”
🎨 John Singer Sargent (American, 1856–1925). Madame X (Madame Pierre Gautreau),1883–84. Oil in canvas. On view in Gallery 771 @metamericanwing. #MadameX #JohnSingerSargent
michelletrachtenbergThis is my favorite childhood photo of my amazing mom. My sister and I are really lucky that this little girl, grew up to raise two strong #women who are independent and have accomplished several things she dreamed for us. She is strength personified. Sassy, classy, and #fabulous. I didn't get her chic fashion sense at all 😉. #Grateful for her everyday. And to the little girl in this photo thank you, we try to make you proud everyday. Love you mom #mothersday 🦄✨💖
