I can't stop my fox craze. It's starting slowly, but I'm already looking for ways to incorporate the darling animals into our apartment decor without looking like a crazy person. I'm in love with the above fox by Jonathan Adler, but I'm not in love with the $138 price tag. So I researched some budget-friendly options and this is what I found.

|Fox plate by kokokoshop on Etsy | $18|

I had to bring back our Hitch or Ditch column for this latest trend I've seen pop up in a few places recently - animal ear headbands. I won't lie, I first spotted the cat ears in Taylor Swift's recent music video for her song "22." Then I saw a character on NBC's show "Deception" rocking bunny ears, followed by Lucy Hale (from "Pretty Little Liars") posting photos on her Instagram account wearing a cat ear headband. A quick Google search found the above cover photo from NYLON Magazine of "Glee" star Lea Michele with cat ears - is this what sparked the trend?

ASOS seems to be the place to purchase animal ear headbands, namely cat ears, and prices them from $10 and up. What are your thoughts on rocking a headband with animal ears?

A couple standout tracks to me are "Don't Know How," "Old Friends" and "LA River." Their ability to switch from upbeat and happy to dark and somber between tracks and keep you listening the whole way through is incredible. Check out the track "Turn That Finger Around" below.

I mean, I couldn't not post about this, guys. Justin Timberlake's highly-anticipated album "The 20/20 Experience" dropped on Tuesday and it is phenomenal. If you thought you liked "Suit & Tie," "Don't Hold The Wall" will be the next song you have on repeat. I can't pick a favorite track just yet, the whole album has been playing nonstop at work, in my car, etc. And it has me even more excited for his concert with Jay Z this summer.
I feel like I don't purchase physical CDs very often anymore, but this one is a purchase must and you should consider getting it at Target. Okay, maybe not just consider - you should buy it from Target. You get two bonus tracks with the Target edition and this week it's on sale for $10. I swooned over the liner notes photos, for a lot of reasons. So much goodness.
Also, our good friend Matt posted that word leaked JT will be releasing a second album this year. I don't even know how I'll handle that.
