The Workday Reading: May 12, 2015
May 12, 2015
1) “A Day in the Life of Pinterest” — imagine if Pinterest was a person, The New Yorker presents a satirical documentation of her daily life.
3) Elle reviews the forthcoming book Under the Bus, a counterpoint to Lean In. The article addresses many issues like, why must work be a calling:
Work, as I’ve always understood it, isn’t a gentle, swaying sort of thing. It’s not full of opportunities for musing on work/life-balance. It’s where you go, when they let you, to make whatever money they’ll give you in exchange for your labor.
4) Looking for fewer ingredients in your beauty products? I am one week in to using the S.W. Basics skincare line, with fewer than five ingredients in each product. So far, loving it.
5) Another Picasso sold for a record sum, but is the public paying the price for the soaring market?
7) The New York Times discusses how Kris Jenner, the ultimate Mom-ager, redefined what it meant to be a celebrity. (It’s an interesting, at times nauseating, read.)
