1) 10 Dumb Rules That Make Your Best People Want to Quit. (Inc.)

2) These cobalt trousers from The Limited look great with neutral separates.

3) This is probably the least you’ll weigh all year. (The New York Times)

4) Bobbi Brown’s long-wear liquid eyeliner in violet is amazing.  It’s just the right amount of color.

5) How subtle biases can derail a woman’s career. (The Fiscal Times)

6) I love this off the shoulder sweaterdress from Shopbop.  Their tie front sweaterdress is great too.

7) Why is Uniqlo Cashmere So Cheap?  An explainer.  Their $69 v-neck is an amazing buy.

8) Target has great, inexpensive art for your office or home.  I like this agate abstract and this vibrant blue watercolor.

    Thank you for that quote today, Belle. I’ve been really trying to make positive changes in myself, and that is the perspective I need to work on. Also- beautiful Target art, and as purples are my favorite color and I have brown eyes, I’m desperate for that Bobbi Brown eyeliner! Is it difficult to apply? I don’t have the steadiest hand! Hope you are feeling better – you inspired me to get the flu shot yesterday! First timer 🙂

      Not really. If you want something easier, her gel liner comes in a pencil or a pot that you apply with a brush. Both are pretty easy.

    Uniqlo really has the best price for cashmere! Stocking up on accessories for Christmas now, before they are all sold out. Thanks for the great read.
