July according to Sample Room

Pssst! Guess who just got a makeover?

Book review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Oh Gone Girl, where do I even begin?

Written by Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl is one of the biggest books to have come out in the last two years. It has been in my to-read list for a while now but I didn't really get the drive to go and get myself a copy until I realized the movie adaptation's …

Thoughtful Thoughts: Time

Nothing reminds us of our own mortality than the death of someone, even more so when it's a loved one. It's a rude awakening of the fact that we are not invincible, that life is but a series of hellos and goodbyes, and that we are just passing through. We are encouraged more than ever to m…

A eulogy

Everything is fleeting.

Your perfume will wear off before the day ends. Your eye makeup, no matter how budge-proof it claims to be, will smudge. Trends come and go. Your favorite TV show will end no matter how you badger the producers to keep it on air. The flowers in the garden will bloom and the…
