[Kate Moss and Johnny Depp via Pinterest] Elon Musk tweeted, “The bird is freed.” Is it really? The Twitter deal is complete. (Insert Honey Badger laughter here– if you know, you know). The month felt like it went by fast. The nights are longer and darker. Winter is at our doorstep. This month was moreContinue reading “October 2022 Favorites”

Switchblade PCRs, Standing Dresses and the Triplets Return

By: Gabriela Yareliz Triplets I thought maybe they were moving out because there was so much noise in the hallway, yesterday. Yes, I am talking about my neighbors, the triplets. I thought maybe they were carting their sofa away. (Wishful thinking). I hadn’t heard a peep from the triplets. But today, they were back, andContinue reading “Switchblade PCRs, Standing Dresses and the Triplets Return”

Wedding Planning (Vanderpump is a Mood)

By: Gabriela Yareliz This scene on RHOBH cracked me up, mostly because I am #TeamVanderpump on this one. (If you skipped it, take a look. It is hilarious). First, I love Lisa Vanderpump’s desire for a church wedding. Her daughter wants her wedding on their estate, but Lisa is thinking church. The wedding planner Kevin,Continue reading “Wedding Planning (Vanderpump is a Mood)”

A Lesson from Ms. Hilton (Loves It)

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s 2004. For Christmas, I get the new Paris Hilton fragrance with a black quilted handbag that has a little compact in it, and it has the name “Paris Hilton” embroidered into it in bright pink. The greatly coveted and cherished gift set. If you were a teen in the early 2000s,Continue reading “A Lesson from Ms. Hilton (Loves It)”

Passport Photos

By: Gabriela Yareliz I greet my friend at the pharmacy. (He works at the pharmacy, and we always say ‘hello’.) He asks me my last name as he logs it into the photo printer computer in front of me, and we find out we have the same last name. Something we had not discovered yet,Continue reading “Passport Photos”

The Thing with Dark Ponds

“People are like that, too, you know. They start over. They find a way.” Celeste Ng By: Gabriela Yareliz I am not going to lie– I can be an annoying person to watch something with. I dislike things that resemble the harshness of our reality. Don’t sit me down to watch some war film whenContinue reading “The Thing with Dark Ponds”

The Ross Geller ‘Hi’

By: Gabriela Yareliz There are people who say ‘hi’ like Ross Geller. As Joey states, they make you depressed when you interact with them. It’s like they are never ok. In fact, you are in a bad mood before you even speak to them because you know what is coming. You armor up. I wasContinue reading “The Ross Geller ‘Hi’”
