Welcome back to Shit You Should Know. We skipped last week and now I know who really loves me because they texted when I didn’t post anything. The rest of you I’ve already unfollowed on Instagram.
Instead of its usual lineup of mostly nude super models, the 2016 Pirelli calendar features a wide array of accomplished women, including Amy Schumer, Patti Smith, and Serena Williams. The resulting photos portray women who are interesting and authentic and complex and, yes, beautiful.

There are only 3 northern white rhinos left in the world after the 4th, named Nola, recently passed at 41 years old. She was the only one of her kind not living in Kenya. Alternatively, there are 7.3 billion people in the world. That’s a lot of people even if 99% of them are undatable. Just something to consider the next time you’re feeling lonely. RIP, Nola.

What I love this week:
The absolute BEST over-the-knee boots that aren’t $700 . These will go great with a NYE dress or a Santa costume or Olivia’s newest workout gear. Wear them to the gym if you want! Work on your core strength. (Note: I am not a fitness professional.)
My heart to the first guy I see wearing a glitter beard.
There are 3 whole months before you have to wear a bikini again—5 if you skip spring break. Winter isn’t all bad.
