Rowan Blanchard x Edit Magazine

I’ve had a soft spot for Rowan ever since she was the star of “Girl Meets World.” Even though the show has ended, she’s quickly becoming a powerhouse for young women everywhere and taking a stand against some of the most important issues being talked about today. In this interview though, she speaks about how maybe she might have spoken too soon on some of these things. Maybe that’s true, whatever the case though; I appreciate her for her awareness. After all, she’s still a young woman coming into her own and learning along the way.

Balmain x Victoria’s Secret Preview

I was going to say earlier this week that this is the first time I’m seeing this much media coverage leading up to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. It’s true, but now that we’ve reached the end of the week, I’m realizing that it’s half positive and half negative. Katy Perry (rumored to be performing) and Gigi Hadid along with several other models will no longer be present for the show. The reasons are…interesting, but I’ll let you look all of that up yourself!

Despite those hiccups, the show will go on and I’m still looking forward to it. This year, the brand is collaborating with Balmain and this is probably the segment that I’m most excited about. Just look at these wings on Jasmine Tookes made out of safety pins. Can we just… have these forever? I have been hearing that there’s a section of the show that will be more punk than ever and with this preview, I’m confident that I’m going to love the rest of the looks.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on CBS on November 28th. Stay tuned for a post featuring all of our favorite looks from it.

Ashley Judd on How to Handle Sexual Harassment

I’ve been holding onto this video for a couple of weeks now and usually when that happens, it’s because I want to marinate on things a little bit longer before I post. These past few weeks – past month – have been littered with news calling out numerous individuals across different industries, but mainly entertainment, for sexual harassment and sexual assault. At times, the details are disturbing and hard to read, but I continue to do so because it’s important. I know that the victims, both men and women, likely struggled to spit those details out for fear of re-opening those wounds. I have so many thoughts on all of this that I could write an essay about it. However, I want to focus for a second on the video posted above.

The assaults, the harassment – all of it is just bad. One thing that consistently irks me is the cat calling. I don’t know how we can get away from it. I wish I could say that I’m someone that is quick on my feet and that when it happens to me, I’m able to shoot something back out at the caller, but I am never that person. You want to know what kind of person I am? The one that comes up with a comeback four hours later. It can be hard to call out the people that are calling YOU out, but I really loved Ashley Judd’s advice in this video that she did for Teen Vogue. I hope that others find this useful as well.

Carpool Karaoke w/ Sam Smith ft. Fifth Harmony

On weekdays, my brain is so fried from work that I can’t muster anything more than posting a YouTube video. You’re in luck though; this is a great one and one of my favorite carpool karaoke’s EVER.

Janelle Monae x Gap

Janelle Monae joined Gap in celebrating their latest campaign. These types of collaboration happen all of the time and we probably could write about one of these every day. However, in reading a little bit more about why Janelle chose Gap as the brand to work with, I stumbled upon a quote that meant something more to me. This my reason for why I chose to share this collab on Yow Yow!

“Growing up, my family and I would always shop around the holidays. I grew up with working class parents and we didn’t have a lot of money. Or, at least to go and buy super expensive things for myself and my sister. So, one of the things was always a treat for us was when we did get the opportunity to go shopping, one of the stores that was within my family’s spending limit was the Gap.
My sister and I would get to pick out a sweater, some jeans — but usually, it was a sweater. I just remember doing that in middle school. Even when I got old enough to shop for myself and I was working at Blockbuster or FootLocker [in the mall], I’d always stop in Gap. It’s pretty much everywhere, especially around the holiday season.”
While there are many that look forward to the holidays, there are also many that don’t. The holidays can be a tough time for families and it’s not something that we tend to shed a light on. Instead, we focus on the best gifts that we can give each other and how much money we can spend. I used to always look forward to shopping with my family around this time, but my parents definitely taught me how to be frugal and this story that Janelle shared is something that I know not only resonates with me, but as I’m sure, many others. This isn’t an ad, though I love Gap and if you’ve been following my Instagram, you know that it’s my favorite piece from the fall season. Gap is such a wholesome, quality brand and they have helped define holidays for me, but also family.

I, Tonya Trailer

The teaser that was released just last month was everything I needed to know to feel confident that this trailer would be amazing. I was just 4 years old when this infamous attack happened on Nancy Kerrigan so it was tough for me to really grasp exactly what this meant. I’m pretty sure my parents described it in terms like “two ice skaters were not nice to each other and one hurt the other’s feelings.” Adult me is ready for the very real and raw version that is this film. Also, don’t you just love Margot Robbie?!

Music Video of the Day

This weekend I did something that I had never done before. I joined my brother and his friends for an evening of karaoke and a hot pot dinner – at the same time. The idea of this is so foreign to me because when I eat, my food has my full attention. I can barely keep up with the conversations going on around me let alone sing to a crowd. It actually ended up being a more low key dinner than we thought it might be so instead of doing both things, we had a queue going of our favorite songs and would casually sing along to them if we decided to do that. One thing that kind of surprised me though was that I had never really seen the music videos of these classic songs that I loved from way back when. I’m talking pre-TRL here. Someone at the table asked “Do music videos even still exist?” Yes! And I might be the only one watching them!

This bop from Calvin Harris’ latest album “Hard to Love” with Jessie Reyez was one of my favorites. Her interactions and movements in this video are totally what I do when I dance too.

Sesame Street Parodies “The Walking Dead”

Okay, we’re having a moment this evening with these posts, but how ADORABLE is this? I was actually a little bit scared to press play when I first saw this because I didn’t know how graphic this was going to get for a kid’s show, but they did a good job. In fact, it’s such a good job that it reminds me a lot of the original series that I love and it’s hilarious. By the way, did anyone watch the season premiere on Sunday?! Where are my Walking Dead fans out here?

The Puzzle Place

Isn’t it funny how something in your day-to-day can instantly remind you of something from your childhood? I was at work today when Crystal had mentioned to me a sushi restaurant in the city called “Zushi Puzzle.” I hadn’t thought about my favorite childhood show since I was probably a kid, but immediately was reminded of The Puzzle Place! I was in love with this show like I loved Sesame Street and something that was really important to me even back then, was seeing another character that looked like me. I didn’t know it then, but I certainly know it now and understand why Julie Wu was my favorite character of them all. Our favorites are always the ones that can identify with us in some way or another. Anyways, I’m not sure if anyone watched this growing up, but looking back I’m impressed with how diverse their characters were. Well done, PBS!

Bobby Hundreds | The Hundreds

This is the kind of stuff that I love sharing on Yow Yow! I’ve had a fascination with all things people since I was a kid. It’s one of the reasons why I’m a recruiter and my interest in people really has many layers. I now work at a company where we help to share peoples’ legacies and their stories so this kind of things jumps out at me almost immediately. Though I’ve never personally shopped at The Hundreds myself, I’m very familiar with the brand and the company that Bobby and Ben created. I watched this profile before bed last night and couldn’t stop thinking about it all day. There’s some good stuff in here and it’s worth the watch.
