The Standards

By: Gabriela Yareliz If we are looking at J.Lo’s direct messaging, we must look at “If You Had My Love.” The song is fun. It has a great beat, awesome choreography and a nice Latin twist in the middle. (She may not be the most vocally talented, but she always has unique signatures in herContinue reading “The Standards”

Sensible

By: Gabriela Yareliz We are bopping today to Gwen Stefani’s “Misery,” and don’t let the title fool you. I am keeping my promise. This is not a sad song. This is not a song about her ex-husband. We left that behind us, and now we have a Gwen who is starting over. This song isContinue reading “Sensible”

The Sun’s Getting Cold

By: Gabriela Yareliz The Earth is in constant movement, causing seasons to come and go. There are times when the heart gets buried in snow. Today, we’ve got another ballad from Gwen Stefani’s Sweet Escape album: “Early Winter.” If you thought “4 in the Morning” was heartbreaking, here’s one to top it.

The Ex Factor

By: Gabriela Yareliz We are entering a new age— one where many of my friends, who have never been married, are dating men who have been married and have children. I feel like back in the day, that wasn’t something most young women in their mid-to-late twenties and early thirties did. That said, most ofContinue reading “The Ex Factor”

My Mistake on: What Every “Godly” Girl Wants in a Man

By: Gabriela Yareliz So, I reblogged a post yesterday that I read, and I honestly think I read it thinking it was saying what I wanted it to say (it’s like being a bad listener, except this is being a bad reader). But after rereading it and thinking about it and discussing it, I realizedContinue reading “My Mistake on: What Every “Godly” Girl Wants in a Man”

By: Gabriela Yareliz I had a conversation with someone about how it’s harder for women with higher education to date, marry or simply find someone they can hold conversation with who isn’t afraid of her. “In reality it is the college-educated woman who is the prize. Her husband can expect a higher level of income,Continue reading “Successful Women”

This Week’s Picks: November 3, 2013

By: Gabriela Yareliz Welcome November! Can you believe it? Already November. It is so cold outside, and it gets dark quickly. In one day, the temperature changed like 15 degrees. There is longing in the air. Longing for: seeing pets, family laughter, eating soup, staying under the covers all morning, reading something that makes youContinue reading “This Week’s Picks: November 3, 2013”

Viviendo [living]: Adamari Lopez

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today, I finished Viviendo, by Puerto Rican actress Adamari Lopez (one of my favorite actresses from childhood). It was a masterful story-telling of her life so far; from when she was born to her meeting and being pursued by Luis Fonsi, her engagement to Fonsi, her telenovela success, her being diagnosed withContinue reading “Viviendo [living]: Adamari Lopez”
