Identity and Development: Surviving My Professional Crossover

Identity and Development: Surving a professional "crossover"

Fall 2015 is waiting for the gun to go off. I keep finding myself hashtagging #fall2015 more than usual. I’m stoked for it. This is the first time I’ve ever started a new semester without some heavy weight on my back (both when I was a student and as a professor). Today, I’ve got my …

Would You Wear this to Work? Is it a Do or Don’t?

Sometimes the line between too much and too little is hard to draw straight. What's appropiate and what's not for work? Take a look at these conflicting styles, then take a quiz to see what you think about professional fashion.

With all the bling and pizzazz out there, especially if you’re a creative type, it’s hard to differentiate what’s appropriate for work and what isn’t. I mean nail art is mainstream. Body glitter is sold at the drug store. Neons are normal. It’s all so vibrant and beautiful, but when it comes to work (sadly) …

Winter Wonders

This style is like a combination of rich woman luxe and funky authentic artist. Every piece reminds you of something classic, while it shows you something you've never seen before with subtle asymmetries, color switches, pattern sizing, allusions to animals and so much more.

A white winter, a city bundled in frozen ivory light. People leave footprints– stamps of existence in the snow. Each carries a sticky chap stick in his/her pocket. Each wears a vivid scarf. It seems too cold to say hello, yet somehow, they wave or nod. It’s warmer under the Christmas lights. Pulled this poem out …

Think You Know About Women?

We should all be able to access the free-spirit inside ourselves.

Let’s see how much you really know… Here’s a quiz I made for us to really get a hold on things.

6 “Power Tools” to Quicken Your Morning and Make You Look Sharp

"power tools" to get you outta the house ready to march through the urban jungle while still looking "meeting with the boss" worthy.

Today I’m choo chooing around on public transport. I’m heading all around town, into work, downtown and back, so the train is the best option. With the awesome convenience of the train still accompanies the requirement of appearing professional for work. In order to be comfortable, safe and hygienic (I don’t like my skin on …

Simply Mauvelous

picky & stay true to your style.

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 …

Find Your Self-esteem Inside Your Cluttered Closet

You will be surprised by how much your closet could be holding you back...

Your room should be your sanctuary. How can it be when every time you open your closet to get dressed, a pair of jeans triggers bad memories, poor body image or low self-esteem? Today, I am proud to say I threw out all my skinny clothes.  I had a Banana Republic fitted dress that I …

Fluffy, White & Fresh

You'll never guess what products you have in your cabinets that are better than dry shampoos and whitening kits

I love fluffy messy movie star hair like Bridget Bardot’s cotton ball teased hairdo. Alas, I have thin hair without body.  If I’m going for a Gwyneth Paltrow look, my hair can be a blessing, but if I want big & Bardot, it’s a whole other ball game.  It’s taken me a lot of hairspray, mousse, …

Her Meanest Day

Learn how to survive even your toughest day. Sometimes looking back at childhood can help you design your own victories against fret, stress or worry.

Ever get the mean reds? –Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s as played by Audrey Hepburn Part 1 One of the main reasons work stresses me out when it does, is because of all the fretting I do. “To fret” literally means to gnaw, as in: The dog gnawed on the chew toy until she …
