June 2022 Favorites

By: Gabriela Yareliz A new month begins. June was filled with really magical and fun moments. There were victories, excitement, and stress. It was sort of a harvest month. There are months when we cultivate and months when we reap the result of serious efforts and grace. I read some incredible books on entertaining, startedContinue reading “June 2022 Favorites”

A Society of Cowards

By: Gabriela Yareliz A society of cowards. Perhaps most of the ills in society can be traced back to a spiritual crisis in which we have eliminated God and have placed ourselves alone on the universe’s stage. And then, in the midst of the anarchy, we grow afraid. We live in a society that cravesContinue reading “A Society of Cowards”

Our Internal Narrative

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s a dark and rainy spring morning as I write this. It is so cool outside, which is refreshing after having woken up with allergies and swollen eyelids. (My allergies are killing me lately). I have my basil Beauty Pie candle going, and my pretty bunch of chamomile flowers on my entryContinue reading “Our Internal Narrative”

The Same Voyage

By: Gabriela Yareliz I watched Bon Voyage (Jean-Paul Rappeneau). It had been years since I had seen the film. It is one of intrigue. One where the upper class and average French life collides as the Germans are invading France. You see government officials in their reasoning for fleeing and surrendering, you see German spies,Continue reading “The Same Voyage”

Summer Inspiration

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s summertime. (Well, almost). The weather feels like it, and school in the South is officially out. What has happened since we last met? I mean, Johnny Depp rightfully won his trial. Shakira and Pique are splitting. The news is in its typical tailspin, and gas and food prices keep going up.Continue reading “Summer Inspiration”

The Vision

By: Gabriela Yareliz I have been a fan of M.I.A. for more than a decade. She became famous for Paper Planes and Bad Girls (Bad Girls has been stuck in my head since it was featured on The Mindy Project). I gravitated to her for her honesty and bad-assery. The Sri Lankan/British rapper is oneContinue reading “The Vision”

May 2022 Favorites

Hello! We have come to the end of my favorite month– and what a month it has been. I binged the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial. My thoughts on it were the #1 post of the month. As I review this, we are still on verdict watch. I enjoyed watching videos from the attorneysContinue reading “May 2022 Favorites”

Johnny Depp v Amber Heard

By: Gabriela Yareliz As many of you know, I have been following the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial. (Nerding out and feeling like I am in law school again). I get a thrill out of a good cross-examination that corners someone into telling the truth. Shout-out to The Body Language Guy (Jesus Enrique Rosas)Continue reading “Johnny Depp v Amber Heard”

The Creative Bride

By: Gabriela Yareliz I’ve got bridal stuff on my mind. Something that has always captured my attention are unique bridal looks. There are brides that sort of pick a more cookie-cutter route (nothing wrong with that; it’s classic). But there are brides that bring an iconic feel to how they look. My mind immediately goesContinue reading “The Creative Bride”

The Jagged Lines

By: Gabriela Yareliz Erwin McManus wrote recently that we pick certain studies and professions because something deep inside of us sort of seeks something in that. He gives the example of his wife, a woman who was orphaned at 8 years old, who then went on to be a teacher for eight-year-old kids. While sheContinue reading “The Jagged Lines”
