6 Years of Aisha

By: Gabriela Yareliz On August 6, 2010, this funny, stylish, Bollywood adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, Emma, was released. Aisha is a hard-to-forget film. It was the first film where I really loved Sonam Kapoor’s performance. And while it has its cheesy moments, it has some fantastic dialogue, clothes, songs– and Sonam is justContinue reading “6 Years of Aisha”

Reflections Before Bedtime #87

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today, I was reminded of a friend of mine. Maybe, it’s more appropriate to use the term ex-friend. We had a weird dynamic and a weirder falling out. We spent lots of time together. It was one of those friendships where you know how the other person thinks and his or herContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #87”

Monday Inspiration: January 11, 2016

Reflections Before Bedtime #31

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s funny how we end up meeting the people we need. People who teach us, stretch us, challenge us and sometimes see us in a much more accurate way than we see ourselves. Maybe, it’s not funny…maybe, it’s serious; so serious, it’s sublime.

Happy Birthday Akash!

Akash, you are one of the most uniquely hilarious people I have ever met. High school wouldn’t have been high school without you.  It was awesome sitting next to this smart, funny guy throughout high school. He always made me laugh. He is caring, hilarious and generous. Dear Mort, this one goes out to you. *wink*Continue reading “Happy Birthday Akash!”
