The Way We Were

By: Gabriela Yareliz People magazine has a list of ‘100 Reasons to Love America’ this week. (I didn’t subscribe; but for some reason, I receive magazines to my address from them). Guess what #100 was? Ben Affleck and J.Lo. I laughed. While it’s a bit ridiculous, it reminded me of relationship nostalgia. Then, there wasContinue reading “The Way We Were”

Before The World Knew Them

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today, I was talking to a friend about how excited I am to read Unfinished by Priyanka Chopra Jonas. It brought to mind all the cross-over stars I knew about before they were famous and well known here in the U.S. That’s the thing, when you are steeped into other cultures, youContinue reading “Before The World Knew Them”

New Love

By: Gabriela Yareliz Finding love is such a mindf***, as they say. Relationships are hard work, but I think the hardest thing of all that determines the rest of the story is finding that person. Who. People come together, oftentimes, for shallow reasons, (not always). But regardless of why or how they come together, theContinue reading “New Love”

Bar Exam Body Image Goals

By: Gabriela Yareliz When you sit and study for 16 hours a day, something is bound to change or give. I am not going to lie, it freaked me out a bit. While you can remain healthy, the sedentary lifestyle takes its toll. Mind you, I am not planning on gaining thirty pounds. That isContinue reading “Bar Exam Body Image Goals”

This Month’s Picks: March 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz Oh March. You almost took us to the grave. It has been an insane month. INSANE. It was one of those four and a half weeks where you have to make important life decisions on a deadline. This month: I applied to almost a job a day; I walked to church again afterContinue reading “This Month’s Picks: March 2015”

Wisdom Personified

Wisdom Speaks Does not wisdom call?     Does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights beside the way,     at the crossroads she takes her stand; beside the gates in front of the town,     at the entrance of the portals she cries aloud: “To you, O men, I call,     and my cry is to the childrenContinue reading “Wisdom Personified”

Monica Perfetta

Come si sente da single? <<Molto bene: sono straordinariamente connessa con me stessa. E mi piace anche dare questo messaggio alle mie figlie, per il loro futuro: non è obbligatorio avere un marito o un compagno. La solitudine non deve farci paura.>>  

This Month’s Picks: October 2014

By: Gabriela Yareliz That’s it. October is out with a bang! And November is being swept in by a cold gust of wind (and not the weird Pharrell ‘you-remind-me-of-the-air’-“Gust of wind” song). Here is my compilation of fun things I found throughout the month, as usual. There are a few of my favorite things sprinkled below:Continue reading “This Month’s Picks: October 2014”

Autumn Fever

Soundtrack for this post: Ben Rector–Yes, let’s bring this back. By: Gabriela Yareliz Last year, I really fell in love with autumn. Spring is fabulous; there is always something wonderful about getting some warmth and relief from a brutal winter (looking at you, winter of 2014), but autumn was beautiful. Maybe, I am turning intoContinue reading “Autumn Fever”
