It’s easy to get caught up in the idea of being ‘chosen’ for a job, but smart job seekers know that they’re not the only ones auditioning.  It’s just as important to search your potential employer for red flags.  Few things are as awful is when you great new job turns into a nightmare.

The Daily Ws.

What I’m Lusting After. This $$$ serum, I mean, if Victoria says it’s the best…

    Ugh I feel that way about the Vintner’s Daughter serum. Can anyone tell me it’s not worth the money so I stop lusting after it?

    • CIci says:

      Do it! My skin is so hydrated and looks so dewy/luminous after two months of use. I was able to snag an almost full bottle off of Poshmark at a discount. Worth keeping your eyes peeled on there and maybe eBay?

  2. CatHerine says:

    Thanks so much for sharing. We’re flattered!

  3. SC says:

    I don’t like the color (or the material) on the Boss suit, but the detailing is truly amazing. It would look absolutely smashing in a charcoal gray with a sleeker zip.

  4. Margaret A Peterson says:

    That Hugo Boss suit is AMAZING. Obsessed. Obsessed enough to walk over the the City Center store right now to see it.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024
