Fan Art Fridays: RIP Robin Williams

July 21, 1951-August 11, 2014

In honor of the anniversary of Robin Williams’ death this week last year, I’ve decided to feature a piece of fan art of the great legend.

I found this fan art on Illustration Works. I really like the fact that a few of the characters he played in movies like Mrs. Doubtfire and Goodwill Hunting are featured in the piece as well.

The art was created by Emily Stepp. You can view the original here.

Rest in peace, Robin Williams.

Influenster #SunshineVoxbox Review

SPONSORED*

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

A couple of weeks ago I received an Influenster Sunshine Voxbox in the mail. I’ve finally found the time to write a review of the products I got!

The box came with Vaseline Contiuous Spray in the scent Aloe Smooth, Infusium 23 Leave-in Smoothing Creme, Sinful Colors nail polish in the shade Oceanside, Dickinson’s Cleansing Cloths, and Blue Diamond Almonds in the flavor Sriracha.

Here we go!

1. Vaseline Continuous Spray, Aloe Smooth. I’m actually quite fond of continuous sprays. I’ve been using the one from St. Ives in the Oatmeal Shea Butter scent for a couple of weeks now, and I must say that this Vaseline Continuous Spray smells a million times more soothing! It smooths on just as I hoped it would, and the bottle says it helps heal dry skin so this is a win for me! If you haven’t tried any continuous sprays yet, you should definitely consider this one. They’re super quick to use, especially if you’re rushing to get ready in the morning!

Yes, that’s my ugly toe.

2. Infusium 23 Leave-in Smoothing Creme. I haven’t tried this on my hair yet (because I’m really picky about what I put in my hair) but I did smell it and I’m not too happy with the way it smells. It’s an avocado and olive oil scent, but it just smells like medicine. I love avocado just as much as the next person, but this doesn’t actually smell very pleasant. I’m so used to using Herbal Essences that I’ve been spoiled into believing that all hair products smell like fruit. Oh, well. Maybe it works better than it smells. Avocado isupposed to be good for your hair.

3. Sinful Colors, Oceanside. I’ve loved Sinful Colors for a very long time. It’s very cheap and it lasts if you put enough coats on and add a top coat. This color isn’t really something I’d wear in the summer, but I do like it. It’s a nice deep blue, and the color is true to how it looks from outside of the bottle. I recommend two coats of this one.

4. Dickinson’s Cleansing Cloths. So I kind of knew I wouldn’t like the scent of these before I even opened them. Witch hazel shouldn’t be the primary scent of these. Please, please add rose extract or something to these. They cleaned my face well, though.

Dickinson’s does the job. I think I can bear the smell of witch hazel for 24 more cloths…

5. Blue Diamond Almonds, Sriracha. I’m not a fan of pepperish foods. As soon as I cut the bag open, I smelled the sriracha. I was scared, yo. But it actually wasn’t too bad. It tastes like cheddar, oddly, with a light dash of pepper. I could grow to like these.

One at a time, and you won’t feel the sriracha!

Overall I think I enjoyed the Vaseline Continuous Spray and the Sinful Colors nail polish the most. Time to kick back and enjoy my Sunshine Voxbox!

As many of you may have already heard, Taylor Swift went cray this week when she found out Ryan Adams is covering 1989.

I’m pretty damn sure she was doing exactly what the GIF is playing right now.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Katie Holmes on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon

Wardrobe Wednesdays- Katie Holmes, Jimmy Fallon

I’ve decided to try posting more about fashion on The Whisper Box in a new series called Wardrobe Wednesdays. In this series, I’ll feature celebrity style along with a few places where you can find items similar to what the celebrity is wearing.

Keep in mind that everyone wants to dress like their favorite celebs, so these items sell out quickly. Therefore, I will try to post items that kind of look like the original piece. I do not intend to post exact matches. I repeat, I do not intend to post exact matches.

For the first Wardrobe Wednesdays post we have Katie Holmes from the July 27th episode of the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in a scribble print Milly dress paired with a silver Louboutin shoe.

Here are a few similar alternatives to this look:

Dress:

1. Storets, $125.00

2. Keep, $84.90

3. ASOS, £131.73 ($205.71 USD)

Pumps:

4. Belk, $41.40.

5. Lulu’s, $34.00

6. Charlotte Russe, $30.99
