Gallery Mondays: #25 by Wane Cod & Lucky Liz

I turned 23 this past weekend, and it truly occurred to me how old I am when I just looked up when the last Garfield movie was released.

More than 10 YEARS AGO.

What even?!

Anyway, I see this truck by Wane Cod and Lucky Liz every time I run an errand for my boss near 32nd Street and Broadway in Midtown, NYC. On it, Garfield the fat cat looks cool as ever in a pair of dark shades against Cod’s infamous “WANE” stamp.

If this is #25, then I better start hunting for the other 24 trucks!

Fan Art Fridays: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for President

Looks like this misery might actually end for sure in 2020.

This week, our favorite rock, Dwayne Johnson, gave us all some hope during a GQ interview and while on Jimmy Fallon’s show when he said he’d consider running for president in the upcoming election.

Hell, yes!

If anyone can save us from the disaster and woes that the Trump Administration has brought upon us, it’s Mr. Johnson. He’s a strong man with a kind heart.

In celebration of the possibility that The Rock might be our next president, let’s admire this cool fan art I found of the actor on Deviant Art by theSinchan. I’m really digging the patriotism on the t-shirt.

View the original fan art here, and watch Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson talk about running in 2020 on The Tonight Show!

Mid-Spring 2017 Dance Workout Playlist

So it’s the middle of spring and you’ve kind of been falling short on your workout goals. It’s okay!

Instead of forcing yourself to run a certain amount of miles everyday to burn calories, turning on some fierce Zumba and soca beats and dancing up a storm in your room for 45 minutes might help you burn fat more effectively.

In other words, why dread shredding the pounds when you can just dance them off?

Here are 14 of my favorite dance workout songs for getting that summer bod ready:

1. Shape of You (Latin Remix), Ed Sheeran ft. Zion & Lennox. Let’s warm this workout up with a little bit of praise for your present (and future) body. 

2. Differentology, Bunji Garlin. You ready?

3. Sexy and I Know It (Glee Cast Version) ft. Ricky Martin. “Menealo, man, yeah.”

4. That Love, Shaggy. The only thing you won’t be missing are those pounds!

5. Fever, Vybz Kartel. Are you feeling the fever yet?

6. Get Ugly, Jason Derulo. “Let’s lose control.”

7. Watch Out For This (Bumaye), Major Lazer ft. Busy Signal, The Flexican & FS Greenu. Can your waistline resist?

8. Velocidade 6, Mulher Melancia. Time to pop that booty at full speed!

9. LUV, Torey Lanez. “I don’t know ’bout you” but burning calories “ain’t a crime.”

10. El Amor, El Amor, Zumba Fitness. Is this workout making you feel cuckoo?

11. Bicycle Ride, Vybez Kartel. “Ride ’til the bicycle bruk off, bruk off.”

12. Sorry, Justin Beiber. Never apologize for losing weight.

13. Perfect Strangers, Jonas Blue. “Come on, come on, come on,” keep moving!

14. Closer, The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey. Cool it down now.

Happy spring workout!

Gallery Mondays: Ribbonesia @ #ShindoUSA

I walked passed Shindo USA in the Garment District of NYC today, and I came across this amazing fox by Ribbonesia made out of ribbon.

I can’t imagine how much patience it takes to make something like this, but it’s gorgeous!

I’m not sure if Shindo USA added the green tie to this fox, but it surely is a nice touch.

Ribbonesia is an artist duo that specializes in making cool ribbon art. See more of their work on Instagram!

Fan Art Fridays: Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer

Melissa McCarthy rode a podium through Midtown Manhattan as Sean Spicer this morning, and I’m kind of upset because I was in the area yet I missed it!

SNL basically secured their TV ratings this for this weekend. With all the craziness that went down in the Washington, DC this week, we’re all going to need some comedic relief.

Over on Instagram, I found this delightful Spicey Mcc cookie made by @thecookiearchitect.

Might I say that Sean Spicer/Melissa McCarthy’s eyebrows and eyelashes look phenomenal on this cookie. I wonder if these cookies are being sold. Even if they were I wouldn’t want to eat it.

Would it go bad if I left it on display in a mason jar?

See the original cookie art here.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Zendaya @ 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards

1. 6pm, $219.00

2.  Lulu’s, $78.00

3. Forever 21, $18.99
