Workday Reading

The Workday Reading: November 25, 2015


When your four-hour drive home takes seven hours, through a blazing snowstorm and blinding winds, surrounded by people who have never driven in these conditions before, watching cars go off the road right and left.  Then, you pull into your parents’ driveway, look at the sleeping puppy in the backseat and think, “We’re alive.  How did that happen?”

Stay safe out there, ladies.


1) 5 Things Every Young Manager Needs to Know. (Levo)

2) Target is selling the perfect tasseled pouch for $15.  It comes in six great colors.  I need them all.

3) Anne Frank and her family were also denied entry to the U.S. as refugees. (WaPost)

4) When I was in high school debate, I had a red power suit that was the bomb.  And thanks to Ann Taylor, I can now replace it.

5) Female meteorologists are obsessed with this $23 dress from Amazon. (Buzzfeed)

6) The Outnet is killing it with this DvF ballet sweater and DKNY flutter top.  For jewelry, this gorgeous blue, collar necklace and this $23 two-finger ring are awesome.

7) 40-percent of Millenials support censoring offensive speech. (Pew)

8) This pink Himalayan rock salt cube and grater is such a fun gift for your favorite foodie.  Also, for an office White Elephant, try this 5-minute hourglass.

9) An unassuming Midwestern family is having their lives destroyed by an anonymous hacker, and there seems to be no way to stop it. (Digg)

10) This affordable sequin pencil skirt from Off 5th it perfect for festive parties.  Plus-size? Try this half-and-half Payette skirt.

11) Coco & Kelly has your guide to all the classic holiday cocktails.

Eye Candy. Net-a-Porter is having their incredible end-of-year sale, do not miss it. My favorite Monica Vinader ring is half-price.

    I kind of hate how much I love the red AT suit. (Also, I bought the grey tweed suit in the same cut from AT recently. It’s very flattering.)

    Ughhhhh, so many things I want to click on and they’re all blocked by the House firewall :(. I guess my productivity thanks you.

    I picked up that pouch at Target earlier this week – I had been on the hunt for a black clutch for weeks and this was perfect, plus a lot less expensive than the other options I was eyeing!

    That happened to me coming home from work once, except it should have been a 20-minute drive and it took eight hours instead. At least your puppy was with you, instead of at home in the dark wondering where the hell you are!

    The story in #9 is absolutely crazy. What a nut and egotistical person that hacker is.

    can you please check on the link for the Target pouch, it didn’t work when I clicked on it. I tried to find it by going to the Target website but not sure which one you are referring to.
