Sunday Girl: June 20, 2021

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Hi guys,

I built a plant stand this week for my little friends and started using my red light bulb in the evenings to wind down. It’s like the red light district in here. Kidding. But seriously, my studio has a Pigalle glow. Anyway, as I glow red *summon healing powers* here is the scoop…

Good Read

So, I am reading Sally Field’s biography, In Pieces. It’s so so well-written. And so damn sad. Wow. I don’t know much about her, but I remember her from Steel Magnolias and Mrs. Doubtfire. If you are looking for a good read, here’s a good one.

Nostalgia

Next, I wanted to discuss the fact that “DieHard” car batteries are available at Advanced Auto Parts. I am not kidding. And I saw an ad with a nostalgia clip referencing the film. This is a real thing. (I saw the ad and thought it was a joke, so I went and looked into it). Bruce Willis and everything. I cannot.

Games

I have been really into games, lately. I feel like we need more card and board games in a world of tv/movie streaming. I got Dutch Blitz (card game) and Clue (Office Edition). I will let you know how the old world gaming sessions unfold. I am excited to spend some time off-screen.

Podcast

I am so honored to have done a podcast episode with my friend Naseem. She has a fabulous nostalgia podcast called Nas-Talgia (a play on her name). We talked about Britney Spears, mental health, the controversial conservatorship and her Oops I Did It Again album. Check it out, here.

What were some of your week discoveries and favorites? xx
