Gallery Mondays: Dogs at Fabiane’s Place by Tom Bob

#tombobnyc #fabianesplace

I was walking to South 4 Bar in Brooklyn for a Sob Sisters meeting that Ada Calhoun invited me to this evening when I stumbled upon this lovely street art next to Fabiane’s Cafe & Pastry Shop by Tom Bob (@tombobnyc on Instagram).

As if the dogs of NYC weren’t cute enough, now there’s six little pups immortalized in street art outside a cute Williamsburg cafe.

Tom Bob depicts the dogs against a New York City skyline with a red house behind them featuring a yellow bird on top. Very Charlie Brown-esque.

It’s little things like this that make me love stepping outside of Manhattan, even if just for an hour or two.

P.S. I think my favorite is wide-eyed Indigo, who appears to be a tan poodle!

Fan Art Fridays: Rachel McAdams

Our favorite Canadian drama actress, Rachel McAdams, is pregnant with her first child!

News of the broke pregnancy on Thursday, and I am so happy for her!

As most probably do, I’ve loved pretty much loved every film I’ve seen starring Rachel McAdams. I think my favorite film she’s starred in would have to be The Time Traveler’s Wife, in which she played Clare Abshire alongside Eric Bana’s character Henry DeTamble.

In light of this baby news, I’ve decided to feature some fan art I found of the actress on Deviant Art by k-dezign. It appears to be inspired by a still of her character Kay Nesbitt in the film Married Life, which takes place in 1949.

I think this black and white sketch captures her essence perfectly. K-design definitely got her on her good side!

Guest Blog: 5 Most Inspirational Women in Hollywood by Nicole DaRosa

Hi, I’m Nicole from Glamorously You! I am so excited to be joining forces with The Whisper Box to provide you with some Hollywood-style inspiration. I talk a lot about staying inspired in your life and career on Glamorously You, so it only made sense to add an element of the entertainment industry on top of that for this collaboration! So without further ado, here are the 5 most inspirational women in Hollywood right now.

Reese Witherspoon

Ready to take on the #Nashville snow! ❄️❄️❄️#coldshoulder

A post shared by Reese Witherspoon (@reesewitherspoon) on

We can’t talk about women in Hollywood right now without bringing up the #MeToo movement, and Reese Witherspoon has solidified her place as a supporter and activist. During the tidal wave of women coming forward with their stories of sexual assault, Reese bravely admitted that she too was violated by a director at only 16 years old. Since then, she has led the path for other women to come forward and tell their stories through the #TimesUp initiative.

Greta Gerwig

Greta is definitely having her time in the spotlight this year, and hopefully it will last for a while. She has become the first women director to have her debut film be nominated for Academy Awards as well as becoming only the fifth woman to be nominated for Best Director in all of Oscar history. Her film Lady Bird has received critical acclaim and is considered to be one of the best films of 2017.

Ava DuVernay

Based on her amazing pieces of work, you would think Ava DuVernay has been in the film industry for decades. Surprisingly enough, her early beginnings were in journalism and public relations! It wasn’t until 2006 that she decided to write and direct her first short film. 12 years later and she has become the first female African-American director to direct a live-action film with a budget of over $100 million! Ava’s story shows us that it’s okay to not have everything figured out at a young age – your destiny will always present itself!

Tiffany Haddish

If I had to give an award to the biggest breakout star of 2017, it would absolutely be Tiffany Haddish. She was the comedienne that we would all see from time to time in small or guest starring roles, but it was her role in the hit movie Girls Trip that catapulted her to leading lady stardom. Since then, she has starred in her own Showtime comedy special, written a memoir, The Last Black Unicorn, and is set to star in a sitcom with Tracy Morgan and a movie with Kevin Hart. This girl is busy!

I had to give a shout out to one of the many young women in Hollywood who are making a name for themselves right now. Yara is best known for her role as Zoey Johnson on black-ish and its spin-off, grown-ish, but recently we have seen her using that platform to launch herself as an activist. She has a mentoring program, Yara’s Club, and has just launched her latest initiative, Eighteen x 18, which is meant to inspire young people to use their power to vote in this year’s midterm elections. And she’s done all that before she celebrated her 18th birthday!

The past year was a rough one for not only women in Hollywood, but for women all over the world. However, it is times like these that bring out the brightest stars! Which woman in Hollywood is inspiring you the most right now?

Nicole DaRosa is the founder and blogger-in-chief of Glamorously You, where she helps young women on their journey to becoming their most glamorous selves, inside and out.

Fan Art Fridays: Nakia from ‘Black Panther’

The day that fans of the Marvel Universe have been waiting for is finally here! Black Panther is officially in theaters today, guys!

I am totally going to see it when the theater clears out of all the people that cannot wait to see it this weekend. Trying to be patient until the end of February is going to be hard, but I’m gonna do it.

I’m most excited to see Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia in the film. I found this really cool fan art of Nakia on Deviant Art while looking for something to feature on this week’s Fan Art Fridays.

Created by Cara Stratton (Erynnia on Deviant Art), the fan art is inspired by this photo of Nakia and Shuri (played by Letitia Wright). I love how Lupita Nyongo’s cheekbones shine through. Contour. On. Fleek.

See the original fan art here, and watch the trailer for Black Panther below.
