As a creative professional, I’m always trying to figure out how to do my job as well as I can. While I come across so many practical tips and words of researched advice, which all offer helpful ideas, I never read about how one specific incident was managed, about real life peers in the workplace, or concrete strategies for daily challenges. Hence, this is one of the reasons Pink Curlers & Post Scripts exists. The other is style, particularly, lifestyle.
This blog blossomed out of my brain as way to express the development of my own style, and to fill the void that I found online: a blog that helped me deal with my day to day activities in a more vivid, personal way.

How will I present my space when I own my first home? When I get my own office? How will I present my-self in my home or in my office? You could say I’m sort of sitting on ideas, keeping them warm for the future, hoping others will join me.

Susan J. Fowler, a former employee of Uber, published a post on her blog revealing numerous counts of sexual harassment and discrimination she experienced while working for the company.

“Make information beautiful” is my favorite infographic design tool’s slogan. Piktochart’s phrase really conveys the core purpose of the infographic. In addition to summarizing information beautifully, the infographic is a place to insert subtle but important messages about the writing process. Small but highly supportive messages can be integrated throughout the informative image. Similar to […]
