You may remember the beautiful deer by Kimberly Witham from On Ripeness and Rot at Last Rites Gallery that I posted for a Gallery Mondays last fall.
Since winter is coming, I’ve decided to feature another one of her creations, this time, a squirrel. She features squirrel’s in quite a few of her pieces.
Squirrels are such random animals. One second they’re running up a tree, and the next they’re stopped in the middle of the street waiting for a car to get just close enough to almost run them over.
I love that this squirrel is calm, in a sleepy state. I really want to believe he’s not dead.
Also, why a lemon wedge and not a nut?

I’ve been participating in several holiday activities (parties, decorating, etc.) this week, so I figured I’d take some down time on this snowy Friday night to catch the Christmas episode of Bob’s Burgers.
Titled “The Bleakening: Parts 1 & 2,” the episode has no shortage of funny one-liners from Gene Belcher and crazy ideas from Linda.
The latter is basically the premise of the episode. I mean, I’m halfway through the episode and I’m still trying to figure out in what world it’s okay to mutilate a Christmas tree. I’m sure that automatically qualifies you for bad holiday ju-ju, Linda!
This Friday we’re celebrating Linda’s quirky personality with some fan art I found of the character on Jamie Owen‘s Etsy store, Digiarttree. It features a drawing of a happy Linda over what looks like a page from a dictionary with the caption “I’ve only had half of four bottles of wine,” taken from another holiday episode “An Indecent Thanksgiving Proposal”.
If you’ve got a Linda fan in your life, this fan art would make a great Christmas gift. Digiarttree also has fan art of Gene, Tina, Louise, and Bob!

Wardrobe Wednesdays will return next week!
November 2017 was an emotional roller coaster. I went from dancing around my room to the month’s most danceable tunes to nearly bawling my eyes out over season finales. It’s no wonder that it took me this long to sit down and gather all my favorites in pop culture in entertainment for this post.
Let’s get to it:
Favorite News Articles
1. The deets on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding. Don’t mind me, I’ll just be here waiting for the specific date in May 2018 so I can set an alarm to catch this on television from across the pond.
2. Moschino’s dry cleaning bag dress. I can already see the Halloween costumes that will come of this.
3. You can now hide away in an 8-foot scarf this winter. You know you’re a New Yorker when all you can think about is how difficult it would be to take this off on a packed and extremely warm train.
4. Cards Against Humanity Saves America. Literally. Have fun trying to build that wall, President Trump.
1. “Pyor” by Darius. BRB, letting the enchanting instrumentals of this track keep me sane until the end of 2017.
2. “Mirage” by Satin Jackets. I’m dying to know who is singing the vocals on this because I really want to delve into their solo work if they have any!
Gallery Mondays will return next week!
The Neighbourhood put out a new song this week called “Scary Love”!
“Scary Love” is part of the band’s upcoming EP To Imagine. It features some pretty high pitched synths, making it sound as scary as the title suggests. When I first heard it today, Jesse Rutherford’s vocals kind of scared me when he sang the opening line “Move to the city with me” in a screeching yet beautiful falsetto.
I’m used to the somber R&B feel of their music but I could definitely get used to a few hair-raising synths 😉
In honor of the release of “Scary Love”, I decided to scour the internet for some fan art of The Neighbourhood. I found this really fun cartoon of the band on Pinterest. It’s not signed at the bottom so I have no idea who created it.
I find it very interesting how the artist decided to give the band members a clown blush look on their cheeks, since The Neighbourhood seems like a serious bunch of guys. Gotta love juxtapositions!
Listen to “Scary Love” on YouTube.
Who said fall was strictly for leaves?
Model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted this week at LAX rocking the most amazing pair of velvet ankle booties I’ve ever seen! The velvet booties were black with a vibrant floral print. She paired the boots with a cozy white wrap coat and a black designer tote bag.
I don’t know what it is about velvet this season, but these boots are to die for! I love how the red rose just pops against the black background mixed with the green and blue plant prints.
Sadly, the original boots are sold out (not surprising!) but see below for a few similar options, as well as other pieces inspired by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s look!
