Fan Art Fridays: Ode to Prince Harry (& Meghan Markle)

I’ve thought long and hard about making this a full on #TWBT post yesterday, but I decided to make this one short and sweet on this lovely Fan Art Fridays blog instead:

Prince Harry of Wales, take care of your Princess.

As a fellow multicultural woman, I’m very pleased with your pick, Meghan Markle. She’s educated, poised, and absolutely stunning. I, and I’m sure many others, were concerned you’d choose to marry the craziest British woman you could find across the pond, but boy am I happy you went for Meghan.

Although Meghan pretty much has to hide her outspoken qualities as the future Duchess (CANNOT WAIT TO WATCH THE WEDDING FROM NYC ON TV TOMORROW, BTW), I hope you always remember to ask for her opinion when you two are behind closed doors. Don’t let a brilliant female mind like Meghan’s go to waste. Let her have influence on your decisions.

And yeah, I know divorce isn’t a thing in the royal world, so please be a good husband. We don’t need a scandal, Harry. I’m serious. TREAT HER RIGHT.

And Meghan, I’ll be watching you strut your fancy self down the aisle in your wedding dress tomorrow morning, representing all the Americans that are obsessed with England and the royals in general.

P.S. Please consider buying property in California. Finish what Princess Diana was trying to start up in Malibu!

Best wishes to Harry and Meghan ❤

Enjoy this amazing fan art of the two by Amro Ashry (artistamroashry) on DeviantArt. I’m considering having it framed.

Also, I highly recommend watching the two documentaries The Real Princess Diaries: From Diana to Meghan (E!) and Meghan Markle: An American Princess (FOX) and if you haven’t already. They’re both phenomenal.

Fan Art Fridays: Prince William & Kate Middleton

prince william kate middleton fan art

This week we learned that Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their third child, so I just HAVE to feature the royal couple for this week’s Fan Art Fridays!

Obviously I’m excited about this news, but some Brits aren’t :/

To celebrate, I found this life-like portrait of Will and Kate over on Deviant Art. Created by Soul of David (David Tercias) the digital piece was inspired by this photo of the two.

I just can’t get over how much hair William has lost since they started having children. Look at how full his hair was back then!

After her performance on Day 1 of Coachella 2016 in Indio, California, Ellie Goulding was spotted chilling in an ombré windbreaker, metallic silver shorts and white sneakers.

The British singer took a laid back look and made it seem effortless, tucking her white blouse into the metallic silver shorts for added measure.

I don’t know about you, but I think she definitely looks ready for a couple of rounds and some good music!

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Cara Delevingne at the 2015 MTV VMAs

It’s only right that the stars wear stars…

The MTV VMA red carpet saw so many great outfits, Cara Delevingne’s being no exception. Just look at how she’s working this beaded star pattern mini-dress!

What I like most about this dress is the fact that it looks appropriate for an upscale award show after party without trying too hard. I bet the disco ball and the lights at the VMA after party lit Cara Delevingne up in this dress like no tomorrow.

Maria Nichol’s Gift Box from Across the Pond

gift box

Back in 2013 when I first started my blog, I met British fashion and entertainment blogger Maria Nichol. Since then, we’ve become buddies, and even though I never met her in person, I think she’s super cool!

We decided to do a gift swap this year. I sent my box to her in October for her birthday, and she sent mine in time for Christmas!

She took the time to write a little note to put in the box before sending:

The box came with some awesome goodies, including Cadbury milk chocolate, temporary tattoos, eyeshadow, cupcake mittens, fake nails and so much more!

Here are my three favorite things from Maria’s box:

1. Dancing Queen

She’s got some serious hip action going on there!

2. Posh Polish

Super excited to wear this for the holidays!

3. British Telephone Booth

I’ve always wanted one of these. I keep it on top of my nightstand next to my bed.

Thanks so much for the awesome gift box Maria!

This Week in Music: Cher Lloyd’s “I Wish” Music Video ft. T.I.

cher i wish

British singer Cher Lloyd premiered the music video for her song “I Wish” ft. T.I. today, September 24th.

This song is definitely an upgrade from her 2012 hit “Want U Back.” After listening to that song on the radio too many times, her grunting gets a bit irritating.

The critics say that Cher Lloyd’s “I Wish” is the female version of the 1995 Skee-Lo song of the same name.

I love it.

The song has a very jazzy, upbeat feel with its trumpet melody and fast bass drum tempo. I love how the trumpets are distorted for the outro, as Cher laughs.

Cher Lloyd looks gorgeous in the music video. She plays a waitress at a lounge bar who lusts after T.I., a player who arrives with a group of women falling all over him.

In the song, Cher wishes to be like these girls so that T.I. would notice her. She sings:

I wish I was tall, I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash’
Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)
I wish I had style, I wish I had flash
I wish I woke up with a butt and a rack’
Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)

And no, Cher did not kiss T.I. in this music video.

I love the parts where Cher tries to give herself bigger boobs. The first occurs in the kitchen, where she places two golden peppers over her chest.

The second time, she’s in the ladies room trying to stuff toilet paper in her bra.

Classy.

After her shift is over, Cher dons a gold glitter jacket and heels. She walks out of the lounge looking sexier than ever, and T.I.’s eyes follow her.

Of course all of his lady friends are jealous and thoroughly confused.

The dancers in the parking lot scenes were fun to watch. I do wish that Cher could have showed off some of her dance moves in this video.

My only complaint about this music video is the way the scenes skipped by so quickly. None of the scenes last more than 3-5 seconds. It was kind of jarring.

Overall, though, it was fun to watch.

Enjoy the music video!

Don’t forget to catch Cher Lloyd on MTV’s Nikki & Sara LIVE at 11:00 PM ET and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on NBC at 11:35 PM ET!
