Monday Inspiration: March 9, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz Happy Monday! Yesterday, we hit a high of 50F degrees. Yes. Spring is blowing us kisses. It’s in the neighborhood, stuck in traffic and not quite here yet (but on its way).┬áLet’s accomplish a lot this week! May it be a week of many accomplishments, simplicity and peace. Let’s keep walking, forward–alwaysContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: March 9, 2015”

West Village Girl; living in her Greenwich Village world

THIS POST HAS A SOUNDTRACK. (I know it can be annoying to press play, and then scroll back up to stop the song when it’s time for the next one, but indulge me). 1] Do me a favor and click play on this, so it plays while you read: By: Gabriela Yareliz Welcome to NewContinue reading “West Village Girl; living in her Greenwich Village world”

Spring & Break

By: Gabriela Yareliz Happy semana santa! It’s the week leading up to Easter. It’s also our only break in the semester. It’s more of a reading week, since exams are days away. It’s a time of reflection, much studying and blessing. It’s a time usually filled with family, pastel colored dresses, chocolate, renewal and life.Continue reading “Spring & Break”

All About Your Heart

By: Gabriela Yareliz I thought I would actually write something; a short note perhaps. The semester is ending. Time is just running like sand between our fingers. It feels like we are on a car that is on fire heading toward a finish line that is actually made of caution tape. Life has been veryContinue reading “All About Your Heart”

Tuesday Badinage

By: Gabriela Yareliz It was a spring day today. I was trapped inside for the entirety of it. In the forecast is: snow. Yes! (Sarcasm dripping all over this people). It seems like we will be experiencing the four seasons this week. New Yorkers are simply living through it and trying to just “let itContinue reading “Tuesday Badinage”

TheContinue reading “Source”

Holi Hai! NYC Bhangra

By: Gabriela Yareliz Holi was a lovely cultural experience. NYC Bhangra and Time Warner Cable put on a great party at the Dag Hammarskjold Park on 47th. There were hundreds of people there. I was there from the very beginning when they first began coloring, and DJ Ricky was setting up while the dancers practiced.Continue reading “Holi Hai! NYC Bhangra”

Cocktail Spring/ Summer inspiration

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am totally ready for the warmer seasons and sunshine. I am tired of dark colors, wearing more than one layer of clothes. I am ready for a softer look, where makeup doesn’t play such a big role to hide pale skin. Current inspiration: Diana Penty; she is known for her roleContinue reading “Cocktail Spring/ Summer inspiration”

Week survival

By: Gabriela Yareliz This week was absolutely insane. When I mean insane, I mean: finishing an oral argument at 10 p.m. at school (but thank God, owning it), that night having to read two briefs and an oral argument, 95 pages each (and it had to be that night thanks to the professor sending usContinue reading “Week survival”
