Fan Art Fridays: Mariah Carey

Is this supposed to be the re-emancipation of Mimi?

This week, Mariah Carey did a photo shoot while floating on the Dead Sea to promote Dead Sea Cosmetics, and it is now confirmed that she’s indeed extra.

I mean, I can’t say I would pass up the opportunity to do a photo shoot on such a gorgeous piece of scenery, especially if I were a multi-platinum artist.

To celebrate her extra-ness (is that a word?), let’s enjoy a normal pencil sketch I found of the singer on Pinterest by reifra.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Aria Montgomery in #PLLFinale

Aria Montgomery, Pretty Little Liars Series Finale Episode Til DeAth Do Us PArt

It’s insane to believe we actually spent 7 years dealing with the suspense and torture that was Pretty Little Liars.

Last night, the show came to a close with the 2-hour finale episode “Til DeAth Do Us PArt.” In the beginning of the episode, Aria Montgomery (played by Lucy Hale) is seen wearing a cute yellow mini dress at the Lost Woods along with Ezra, the rest of the Liars, and Toby.

The dress has the cutest little belle sleeves and frills, making it the perfect summer staple. See below for some dresses inspired by the look!

Dress:

1. Shopbop, $537.00

2. REVOLVE, $536.00

3. TB Dress: $34.99

 

Gallery Mondays: Vintage Motorola Model 57CF AM Tube Radio

Vintage Motorola Model 57CF AM Tube Radio compass music and art center vt

Over the weekend I visited Vermont with my parents, and we stopped by the Compass Music and Arts Center in Brandon where I saw this beautiful pink vintage Motorola tube radio.

The radio is from the late 1950s, and comes with a clock on the left side. I just love how adorably retro chic it looks with the cute golden radio dials. I can so imagine a group of high school girls going down to the beach with one of these to play some tunes while they relax on the sand.

If you’re visiting the Rutland County area of Vermont, you should totally check out the Compass Music and Arts Center’s permanent Phonograph Rooms exhibit. There are loads more vintage audio and video stuff to see there, if you’re into that sort of thing!

Fan Art Fridays: LIGHTS

LIGHTS released a new song today called “Giants,” and now I’m excited about her upcoming album Skin&Earth.

I didn’t even know she was putting out a new album, much less that she had dyed her hair red! Where have I been?!

Anyway, let’s celebrate the release of “Giants” with this awesome fan art I found of LIGHTS by @kellymusler over in Instagram. Her hair looks super fiery in the color pencil sketch, which I absolutely love!

Gallery Mondays: “Trans…Chair” by the Campana Brothers

Last Tuesday, June 12th, was the Museum Mile Festival in NYC, which many art and museum lovers know as the best three hours to be in on 5th Avenue in Upper Manhattan.

During the festival, a variety of museums along the 5th Avenue strip are free admission, including the MET, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum. As you may have guessed, the smaller the museum, the less people can get in, so the line for the Guggenheim wrapped all the way around the block to Madison Avenue.

Needless to say, my friends and I did not bother waiting to get into the Guggenheim. Maybe next year.

We did get to visit the MET, Cooper Hewitt, and the Museum of the City of New York.

At Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, we came across this wicker chair called “Trans…Chair” by the Brazilian Campana Brothers (Fernando and Humberto). Part of a collection called TransPlastic, the chair is transformed with some interesting objects that have become attached to it.

This is one of those museum pieces you can’t just walk by and not stop to examine. I mean, come on, there’s a flip flop and a baby doll’s leg jutting out of the chair for crying out loud!

Learn more about the chair here.

Fan Art Fridays: Demi Lovato

And here we all thought that the sass was real on Demi Lovato’s “Confident.”
Today, Demi’s collab with Jax Jones and Stefflon Don titled “Instruction” was released, and boy, I don’t think I wanna disobey!

Demi is basically boss lady on this track and I love every second of it.

To celebrate this amazing song, here’s some fan art of Demi by @londonhazz on Instagram. Look. At. Those. Lashes!

Check out some more of @londonhazz’s art and listen to “Instruction” here.

Summer officially begins next week, and Olivia Munn is wasting no time breaking out the mini skirts for the occasion!

The actress was spotted in New York City dressed in head to toe sporty chic as she wore a leather mini skirt, graphic tee, and black hi-top sneakers.

I love how daring the mini skirt is! The embroidery on the mini skirt is also a really nice touch combined with the Bella Freud ‘Anita’ t-shirt.

May Favorites: Covfefe & #BowWowChallenge

Let’s not even get into how late this Monthly Favorites post is.

May 2017 was a month of laughs. Oh. Em. Gee. I don’t think I’ve had this much fun with pop culture news in a while. We got some awesome music videos during the month of May as well.

Let’s get to it:

Favorite News Articles

1. Donald Trump’s “Covfefe.” The tweet read round the world?

2. Jaden Smith’s hair as an accessory. When it comes to the MET Gala 2017, anything goes.

3. When a pineapple becomes modern art. Simply brilliant.

4. This couple went to prom dressed like the Obamas. YAAASSS.

Gallery Mondays: Peace

While strolling past a school under construction in East Harlem, I saw this adorbs crochet peace sign made of yarn on the fence.

Even though crochet reminds me so much of winter, this peace sign screams spring with its florals and vibrant colors.

I’m not sure who created it―much less if it was just one person or a combined effort―but I think it’s such a nice touch amidst all the scaffolding, dumpsters and construction tools on the site.

See the floral peace sign for yourself on the corner of Lexington Ave and 104 Street!
