Fan Art Fridays: ‘Fifty Shades Freed’

zipcy fifty shades fan art ana and christian grey

The last installment of the Fifty Shades series came out in theaters this weekend, basically revving up everyone’s Valentine’s Day yet again.

Although I haven’t seen any of the movies yet, I have read the trilogy and fully intend to read Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey As Told by Christian sometime this year.

I’m pretty sure the film adaptation is very racy (it would be a waste if it weren’t, right?) and I kind of don’t want to watch them alone so I’m still waiting for the perfect moment to watch them.

Zipcy, an illustrator I recently found on Instagram posted some fan art of the film this morning, so I couldn’t resist featuring it on this week’s Fan Art Fridays. Inspired by the official movie poster for Fifty Shades Freed, the fan art features Ana and Christian Grey getting ready to do something hella raunchy!

I love how Zipcy turned this black and white grey poster into full color. It totally gives the image life, especially with the added the flowers in the right corner.

View the original fan art here, and watch the trailer for Fifty Shades Freed below.

Gallery Mondays: “Sea Dreams” by Peggy Mach

sea dreams peggy mach babylon library

I’ve been to the Babylon Library a handful of times while back home in Long Island, but I’ve never stopped to take a proper photo of this sculpture in front of the building.

Called “Sea Dream” the sculpture was created by Peggy Mach and donated to the Village of Babylon in 1983. In it, a boy sits barefoot on a ledge with a book in his lap, staring out into the void.

I love how blissful the look on his face is. He must be having a wonderful day dream about whatever book he’s reading.

Speaking of, what book is he reading? The scrawls on the book cover aren’t really legible.

I guess I’ll never know.

As for my playlist, which I’m dubbing “Spotify & Chill,” it starts out sappy and slow, then switches to a smooth groove toward the end.

Fan Art Fridays: Groundhog Day

Today is February 2, aka Groundhog Day, and, as usual, the groundhogs are not in consensus.

Punxatawney Phil in Pennsylvania saw his shadow, predicting we’ll have six more weeks of winter. Meanwhile, Staten Island Chuck here in New York City says spring is fast approaching. And then General Beauregard Lee in Georgia went and ruined the odds with his prediction that winter is definitely sticking around for a bit.

Sigh.

Once the winter is gone by May, I’ll be able to deal.

A few theaters in New York are showing the 1972 film Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray as Phil Connors this weekend to coincide with this yearly meteorological madness. I also found this fun watercolor inspired by the film on Etsy, painted by andyrama. The watercolor depicts the scene in the film where the groundhog takes the wheel during a car chase.

I don’t care how good you are at predicting the weather, buddy. I’m not letting a groundhog drive a car that I’m sitting in, much less during a car chase. That’s just not gonna fly with me.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Miley Cyrus @ MusiCares Pre-Grammy 2018 Event

Miley Cyrus fashion, Pre-Grammy MusiCares Person Of The Year 2018

Even before the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday, celebrities were bringing out their best looks, one of them being Miley Cyrus.

It really is refreshing to see her back to her old self again!

The singer took the stage at the Pre-Grammy MusiCares Person Of The Year show in NYC last week to honor Fleetwood Mac with “Landslide” while wearing an amazing black sparkly ensemble. At first I thought it was a jumpsuit, but it appears to be a separate long sleeved blouse and pant outfit, custom made by August Getty Atelier.

I love how polished and put together Miley looks in this outfit. The plain black color against the sparkles make for a  freaking fabulous look without appearing too overdone. I’m a huge fan of fun outfits like this one.

See below for a few pieces inspired by the look!

1. Forever 21, $48.00

2. Pretty Little Thing, £10.00 ($14.21 USD)
