Sofia Richie at SAG-AFTRA Foundation Awards fashion

Just look at Sophia Richie’s pose, so light and carefree. Who said tuxedos were only for men!

Gallery Mondays: Freeport Spirits

freeport spirits wall art

I’ve been dabbling in a bit of historical fiction writing over the last couple of months. I recently wrote a short story about pirates, so when I came across this photo in my camera roll I decided it was fitting for this week’s Gallery Mondays.

This seafaring scene was found on the wall outside of Freeport Spirits in Long Island. I see it every Sunday on the way to church, so I recently snapped a photo of it.

One of the three ships in this art piece looks like a pirate ship. I wonder if this scene is based on real events, and if so, did the pirates make it onto land in Freeport?

I wonder which ship is carrying the barrels of wine…

October Favorites: Obamas Moving to UES & Rihanna Drive

The cold wasted no time making an appearance at the end of October. Like, I know I was complaining that it was still summer during the first few days of fall, but jeez!

Anyway, the month of October 2017 had a mix of fun music and pop culture news coupled with a few terrible events. Monthly Favorites on The Whisper Box only focuses on the former, so let’s leave all the bad stuff behind.

Here are my favorites for the month of October!

Favorite News Articles

1. The Obamas might be moving to NYC’s Upper East Side. They say third time’s the charm, and this is the second report stating they may end up living in NYC…

2. Barbados is naming a street after Rihanna. I bet she’s gonna rev up her engine and cruise on down Rihanna Drive blasting “Drive” because, why not?

3. Balenciaga’s platform heel crocks. What is fashion anymore?

4. This woman checked her horse in at a Kentucky hotel. Was no one concerned that the horse might accidentally cause damages to the room?!

5. Lupita Nyong’o’s NYT piece on Harvey Weinstein. I’m glad spoke up about this, even if she was able to avoid this disgusting bastard’s advances. He got what he deserved 10 times over.

Favorite Music
1. “No Captain” by Lane 8 ft. POLIÇA. Something happened to my heart when I heard this song for the first time.

2. “Should I” by Phoebe Ryan. Loving the Motown vibe mixed with ’80s electropop on this track! Continue reading

Fan Art Fridays: Freddie Highmore

ABC’s The Good Doctor was on hiatus this week, which was so saddening because I was legit lying in bed waiting for Dr. Shaun Murphy (played by Freddie Higmore) to appear n my screen on Monday night to no avail.

The show is only a few weeks old and I am hooked! Its partially because I’ve loved Freddie Highmore’s acting ever since seeing him as a kid in August Rush back in 2007. The Good Doctor is generally a well written medical drama, in my opinion. Freddie Highmore just adds to the show’s appeal.

To get me through until Monday, November 13th’s episode of The Good Doctor, I’ve decided to feature Freddie Highmore for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. This piece of digital fan art by Oshin Padhye (OshinP) on DeviantArt features the actor smiling that sly grin he always does. Classic.

Ella Lopez, Lucifer, “Vegas With Some Radish” fashionAs if this weeks episode of FOX’s Lucifer, “Vegas With Some Radish,” wasn’t amazing enough, LAPD forensic scientist Ella Lopez wore the most incredible outfit during the casino scenes!

This outfit plus all the craziness in this episode are making “Vegas With Some Radish” one of my favorite Lucifer episodes to date.

Ella came down the escalator at the casino to meet Lucifer wearing a black and gold strapless dress that basically screams VEGAS. She paired the look with a cute gold clutch and wore her hair swept to the side.

This was a very exciting change of scene, I must say!

Gallery Mondays: Chelsea Guitars

A couple of weeks ago, I walked past Chelsea Guitars and saw this awesome sculpture of a woman sitting outside the shop with a mini guitar in hand.

It took me a while to realize this woman is Marilyn Monroe. Boy, I’m slow sometimes!

Marilyn Monoe is wearing her infamous white dress from Seven Year Itch, the top of which is covered with one of the Chelsea Guitars Coat of Arms tee shits. So clever.

I’m not a guitar player, but I would have totally went inside if I were. Chelsea Guitars seems like a really cool shop!
