The thing about weekends is that they’re big fat teases- they stand in front of you, covered in tassels and glitter, beckoning. Promising delights beyond reckoning and frolics that put the most debauched imagination to shame. And so, in you go, wide eyed and full of beans, waiting for your world to be rocked, red paintbrush in hand, and before you know it it’s Monday morning and all you have left is a broken shoe, half your dignity, and all of someone else’s chewing gum.
BUT UNTIL THEN, here’s a little something to help you get into it. (Warning: Caps ahead)
1. JOAN MOTHERLUVVIN’ SMALLS, KILLING EVERYTHING IN CANNES. ALL THOSE PEOPLE BEHIND HER ARE CORPSES. THEY ARE DEAD BECAUSE SHE KILLED THEM.
2. These two excellent essays on why pretty much everyone should stop watching Game of Thrones and/or at least why you should watch it with about half the expectations as you did before. The Mary Sue here and the excellent Andy Greenwald here .
3. This photo of Neville Longbottom or as Muggles know him, Matthew Lewis showing everyone how long is front-bottom actually is. Or, it would be, if some hilarious person hadn’t put Maggie Smith’s face right on it. Go check out the full photos here
4. These Aquazurra Wild Things, the current IT shoe of the moment, so gorgeous and fun that they make me giggle every time I look at them.
The featured image this week is of Chantelle Winnie, who is gorgeous and also, word has it, a bit of a bitch. I LOVE HER.
