Fan Art Fridays: Madea

m rasheed madea fan art

Boo 2! A Madea Halloween is out in theaters today, for those of you who’d rather leave the cinema laughing instead of fearing nightmares this Halloween.

I really did not expect Tyler Perry to create a second Halloween-themed Madea film. Not that I didn’t like the first one, but this doesn’t seem to be a direct continuation of the 2016 film. I’ll still probably watch it when it arrives n DVD though.

I was quite young when Madea became a household name. My Godmother gave my mom one of Tyler Perry’s stage plays ages ago. It’s insane how far Madea’s craziness has gotten on the big screen.

For this week’s Fan Art Fridays, we celebrate everything that is Madea with this cartoon by M. Rasheed. It featured Madea and her many faces.

I’m not sure what possessed Tyler Perry to allow Madea to legally own a gun. I would not be caught dead near her while that thing was loaded.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Fallon Carrington in ‘Dynasty’ 2017 Premiere

Fallon fashion, Dynasty Premiere episode

I think I found a new show to dabble into!

The reboot of the 1980s soap Dynasty premiered last week, and aside from the endless drama between Fallon and Cristal that I do not want to miss, the show’s fashion is to die for.

Since the show focuses on the wealthy Carrington family, you can expect to see Fallon Carrington dressed in at least 3-4 lavish outfits per show. The premiere episode, “I Hardly Recognized You,” featured a barn house scene with Fallon in a gorgeous pair of fuchsia pants paired with a dog print blouse.

I love the pop of color in this outfit. It’s so bold and daring!

See below for some pieces inspired by Fallon’s look. Don’t forget to catch Dynasty on Wednesdays at 9pm on CW!

Blouse:

1. Farfetch, $879

2. DHgate, $15.15

Pants:

3. MetroStyle, $39.99

4. NA-KD, $59.40 

Gallery Mondays: Agoraphobic Gallery

agoraphobic traveller gallery

As a Google Maps Local Guide, I was invited to visit Agoraphobic Gallery over on 39 Spring Street in NYC earlier this month.

The gallery was quite interesting, as is the woman behind it, Jacqui Kenny, a.k.a. the Agoraphobic Traveller. Her agoraphobia makes it difficult to travel, so she peruses Google Maps street view as a way of traveling the world, taking cool screenshots along the way. She finds some really interesting hidden gems in her Google Maps travels, which made it into this gallery.

One of my favorites is the promo image used for the gallery, which I got to see IRL on a long skinny illuminated table lined with Kenny’s screenshots. Called “Camels getting out of the way of the Google car in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates,” it features two gorgeous camels in the desert. I can imagine how awesome it must have felt to come across this find. I don’t usually look at Google Maps of places outside the US, so for me this is a really cool scene to have found.

You can view more of Kenny’s agoraphobic travels on Instagram.

Fan Art Fridays: Gloria Delgado-Pritchett

So I’m going to finish out National Hispanic Heritage Month with one of my favorite Hispanic TV characters, Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, played by Sofia Vergara, from Modern Family.

Both the actress and the character are Colombian, which is pretty convenient.

Gloria has such a colorful personality that it’s hard not to like her. From being an overprotective mother to her crazy temper, she’s one of those television characters you can’t easily forget.

Gloria is also known for being really loud, as portrayed in this fan art by katseartist on Deviant Art. She’s screaming for her husband, Jay, as she does regularly on the show. I can hear her voice just from looking at this cartoon version of Gloria.

See the original fan art here.

Nicky Hilton fashion L.O.L. Surprise! launch

Nicky Hilton is living the velvet dream.

She wore a seriously cozy looking ruby velvet blazer to the L.O.L. Surprise launch on Tuesday, and it’s giving me all the fall feels. After looking at the blazer for a while it kind of reminds me of a royal’s velvet robe!

Nicky Hilton paired the blazer with some skinny jeans and black pumps. I love the little bow detail on her pumps!

September Favorites: Maye Musk & “Underdog” by BANKS

September 2017 was pretty groovy.

Besides the fact that NYC weather refuses to fully transition to fall, September was pretty good in terms of pop culture and entertainment. The summer ended with a splash of great music, which I can never complain about. Also, the fall TV premieres did not disappoint.

Let’s get to my September 2017 favorites!

Favorite News Articles

1. Maye Musk is our newest Covergirl. Can I be her when I turn 69?

2. Sean Spicer made an appearance at the Emmy’s. This award season is going to be wayyyyy too much fun.
