I’m very picky when it comes to style (I don’t know anyone else who declares mauve their favorite color).
I’m so picky, that I created this blog 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.
As a “rookie” professional, I’m always trying to figure out how to do my job as well as I can, resulting in a few collections I call “Profesh!” across social mediums like Pinterest and Scoop it. While I read so many practical tips and words of researched advice, which all offered helpful ideas, I never read about how one specific incident was managed, about real life peers in the workplace, or the always present not-so subtle competitive vibe. Hence, this is one of the reasons Pink Curlers & Post Scripts exists.
Part of style development and professional growth is looking for aesthetics and designs created by others’ minds that please you. The way a room looks when you enter it can compel you to never want to leave it. 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.
But, because I’m so picky, I have a hard time finding others that “live up to” my preferred aesthetics. Needless to say, when I do find something that’s more than what I’ve been missing, more than I could make up on my own, I’m blown away. So, maybe being picky is worth it.
Anyway, the whole point of this post is to share a blog I came across via a Pinterest related pin. The first thing I noticed was that it was an image of a gorgeous bathroom. It contained a lovely bathtub surrounded by shades of mauve and lavender. It’s a look I never would have thought of myself, but now that I’ve seen it, it’s mauvelous!
Another post I enjoyed on marcusdesigninc.com was a mini-collage of images illustrating what can be worn after Labor Day. I actually like the looks. Her bio is also impressive and seems genuine,
A stereotype as defined by Merriam-Webster is “an often unfair and untrue belief that many people have about all people or things with a particular characteristic.” Colloquially, the term, stereotype, “is used to categorize a group of people. People don’t understand that type of person, so they put them into classifications, thinking that everyone who […]
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. Her post is straightforward and pretty bias-free; her tone is calm, but frank. While some of her experiences at the company might appall readers, her author’s […]
“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 […]
