Fan Art Fridays: Lana Del Rey

lana del rey fan art will costa

Elizabeth Grant’s, erm, Lana Del Rey’s new album, Lust for Life was released today, and boy, is it one sultry 16-track album.

I just can’t get enough of her voice sometimes!

My favorite track on the album is the title track, “Lust for Life,” featuring another crooner fave The Weeknd. There’s so much intense imagery and repetition in the lyrics, which I’ve always really loved about Lana Del Rey’s music.

To celebrate Lust for Life, let’s enjoy this piece of Lana Del Rey fan art by Brazilian illustrator Will Costa that I found on Facebook. It has just the right amount of playful cartoon characteristics mixed with real human qualities. He captures Lana’s lips and eyes perfectly!

See more of Will Costa’s work on Facebook and watch the music video for “Lust for Life“.

 

June Favorites: Ken’s Man Bun & Washed Out’s ‘Mister Mellow’

June 2017 had some interesting developments.

Can I just say how excited I am for this summer’s new music?! So many amazing singles, EPs, and full length albums have come out already and the summer is less than a month in!

Let’s take a look at my favorites in pop culture and entertainment for June 2017:

Favorite News Articles

1. Ken has a man bun. I’m not a huge fan of man buns but this is really a quite interesting hipster-like look for a doll.

2. Obama wore the same tux for his entire presidency. The things men can get away with.

3. This guy’s business card tho. I’d get hella excited if I’d received anything close to this cool at a networking event.

4. Al Sharpton’s gym selfies. Let the man live.

5. Designer cantaloupe. Walmart, what makes you think anyone would trust this when everyone and their mother wants to buy organic?

Favorite Music

1. Mister Mellow by Washed Out. Can someone book Ernest Greene at Lincoln Center with an accompanying orchestra to perform this album live please? Thanks.

Capital Cities duo Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant just made my Friday with the release of their new EP Swimming Pool Summer.

I was so caught off guard when I heard their voices coming through my headphones at the office while listening to Spotify’s New Music Friday!

The EP is super summery and upbeat. Long-time fans will not be disappointed.

In celebration, let’s enjoy this fan art I found on Twitter by Filipino Capital Cities fan @imnotjess. I love how vibrant and fun the colors are in this poster-like fan art. Perfectly matches the personality of the band!

She paired the blue/black gingham with white capri pants and a gray leather weave handbag, keeping with the subtle neutral tone of the look.

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

 

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!
