Workday Reading

The Workday Reading: September 11, 2015



1) Six reasons to set New Year’s goals in September.

2) This top handle satchel is lipstick red with multiple compartments and a good size for work.  Plus, it’s under-$50.  What more could you want?

3) Deadspin has some very helpful tips on how to write a note for any occasion.

4) Need work dresses? The Tahari Avant sheath and Contrast Sleeve dress are perfect for early fall.  And this Nicole Miller dress is a winter time staple.

5) Gizmodo discusses the rise of “fake holidays” like National Tequila Day.

6) Belif is my new-favorite skincare line.  Their soothing mask is incredible for tired skin.  I’m also loving their mild facial scrub.

7) Is it time to tax the Ivy League’s multi-billion-dollar endowments?  And is college tuition really too high?

8) Hello, perfect v-neck sweater.  Casual enough for day, dressy enough for the office.

9) Looking to boost your understanding of economics?  Business Insider has some tips on how to learn the basics without going back to school.

10) If you’re into little rings, this black enamel accented Kendra Phillip Rosie Ring is to die for.  I also love these perfectly pretty stack rings in rose, yellow, and white metal.

11) The economics of pop music, and why Spotify is a bad deal for young artists.

Workday Eye Candy. Need an evening gown?  This $180 ASOS number hits way, way above its weight class.

    Thank you for all the work you do to collect these links! May I make a request? (Sorry if you’ve addressed it in the past, and I’ve missed it.) When linking to other sites, including links to clothing/shoes/accessories in your daily posts, could you possibly code the links to open in a new window please? I follow about 100 blogs on a daily basis, and forget which ones have links that open in a new window (without overwriting the blog post) versus which ones need right clicks on the browser. It’s so very helpful to be able to stay on your main post and click through all the links in one fell swoop, instead of clicking the back button after reading every link. Thank you again! ❤

      WE have a new design coming (I feel like I’ve been saying it forever, but paying for it, and coordinating it has taken more time than I thought.). The links in the new site will open in a new tab.

    There’s a loud auto-play ad that appears in the middle of the screen, right below this post.

      I’ll see if I can get that off. All these ads will be gone at the end of the month.
