1) Questions to help you pinpoint why you’re unhappy at work. (The Muse)

3) Sorry for the Delayed Response: What I wish I could say in e-mails. (The New Yorker)

4) This Vince Camuto top looks great under a blazer, and this Topshop drape blouse is phenom.

5) When your ‘Day Without Women’ Response Violates Federal Law. (Inc.)

6) Ann Taylor Must Haves: This tulip lace shell, flare sleeve dress, and wide leg crepe pants.

7) Why you need quiet time (aka. a social media break) when you’re stressed. (HBR)

What I’m Looking Forward To. Victoria Beckham’s new Target Collab.

What I’m Super Excited About. I saved up to buy a new vacuum, the Dyson Cinetic for pet owners and allergy sufferers.  It’s like Christmas morning in my house.

What’s Upsetting Me. A woman was accused of faking her own kidnapping, and not even the truth can set her free.

    #2 – I bought a Guess Cate satchel last year, but the quality was poor. The fabric loop that the shoulder strap connected to tore out one day – and I don’t overload my bags.

    #3 was a much needed laugh that does hit surprisingly close to home. Whoops.

  2. Anna says:

    Someone needs to make a vacuum for human hair. Forget all the pet hair, I’m the one who sheds all over the place.

    • Cait says:

      Yes! This weekend I had to use a knife to cut out all the hair that had gotten wrapped around the rolling mechanism in my vacuum- so gross!

    • MS says:

      This!! Sometimes I’ve wondered if “pet” is just code-word for women’s long hair in marketing speak — my roommate and I don’t have pets but our vaccuum is still a mess.

  3. Lauren says:

    Would love to see your wedding season picks and maybe a summer travel clothes guide!

  4. Addie says:

    Regarding the article on needing true quiet time: I’m an introvert who frequently comes home from work and sits in silence for 30 minutes. No tv, no serious reading, no music. Although I will sometimes mindlessly scroll through FB. It’s beyond soothing.

  5. Jennifer says:

    Thank you for The New Yorker article. I rewrote one of the entries to be, “So sorry that I’m just getting to this now. I hoped you would forget you _ever_ e-mailed me and I could just go on living my life.” I am also adding this entry, “So sorry that I’m just getting to this now. I’ve spent a week sifting through so many attachments from you that I wouldn’t have to do if you just used the &*^%$ shared drive!” Seriously, I am doing this now . . .

    • Belle says:

      “Sorry for the delay, I had way more interesting things to do than respond to this e-mail, here is a list of what I was doing instead: watching grass grow, watching paint dry, watching cat videos on YouTube, and converting oxygen to carbon dioxide.”

  6. Hilary says:

    I thought a Dyson would be the vacuum of my dreams … Sadly, I HATE it. Wish I had never bought it. It’s heavy and I HATE the hose attachment – the process of getting to it, the uselessness of the attachments and how much they doesn’t suck, and it does not clean the carpet on our stairs. HATE.

  7. Rachel says:

    I have a friend who had her brows micro bladed and it looks SO good. It is a procedure I’m freaked out by in theory but it was good to see how great it looks on her and is something I am considering.
