Workday Reading

The Workday Reading: December 16, 2015



1) This Google e-mail on time management is definitely worth a read. (Fast Company)

2) I wish these Globe Trotter suitcases weren’t so expensive, or impractical.  Oh, well.

3) A Harvard study says you need to beware the rule-following co-worker. (Washington Post)

4) Two of my favorite British brands are having great sales.  Hit up Karen Millen for gems like this knot-draped pencil dress.  L.K. Bennett has great pieces for work and play. I love this black tweed jacket.

5) What ignited our burning desire for luxury candles. (Racked)

6) BareMinerals has the best eye kits for the makeup challenged.  Their Alluring Eyes Kit and Work, Weekend, Wow Palette are both great.

7) How can I fit all of my accomplishments on a one-page resume? (Levo League)

8) Need a winter coat with extra style?  I love this JDY wrap coat from ASOS.  Boohoo’s long-line camel coat also caught my eye.  I was also draw to this green, faux-fur trim parka.

9) Five financial conversations to have before the end of the year. (Forbes)

10) Gilt is having a Rebecca Minkoff sale.  They have the last of the oh-so-perfect MAB Mini Satchels for work, and this cute Adeline tote for weekends.

11) People who curse have better vocabularies. Take that, Mom. (Mic)

Gift Guide. Do you have a person who likes to run or walk outside?  Do they do it after dark? Athlights provide a bright light that makes them more visible to passing cars.  These LED wristbands from Lab7Fitness.

    Those LED wristbands are a GREAT gift idea. I bought a similar pair for myself and I have been so much more confident running at night since then. Anything that helps me avoid the treadmill is a true gift!

    That candles article is great – definitely have noticed the trend towards higher end candles, but just can’t bring myself to commit (as much as I want a wood sage and sea salt Jo Malone candle). We have a great local candle company ( so I will continue to spend my “candle budget” there.
