What am I going to do with my life? (Powerpoint)

I’m feeling a little stuck, right now.  In a rut.  This powerpoint made by Millie Tran is a great resource for anyone who feels that way about their career.  It helps you think about your future in a different way, and really focuses your thought process.

1) Work dresses with sleeves: this Antonio Melani, this Adrianna Papell, this plus-size LOST.

2) I work too hard, and I’m still poor and miserable. (The Cut)

3) Anh posted this Insta, and I ran right out and bought Spanx Arm Tights.

4) Meet the heroine in every rom-com written by a man. (McSweeney’s)

5) J.Crew’s bodysuit dress shirts, yay or nay? The turtleneck is nice, too.

6) Will Ben Franklin’s timeline help your productivity? (The Cut)

7) Do I need a blush puffer coat? I think I need a blush puffer coat.

8) Half of men think there are ‘enough’ women in leadership roles. (CNBC)

What I’m Listening To. Weirdly obsessed with Macklemore, Glorious.

What I’m Eating. This Kalbi marinade, can’t get enough.

Instagram of the Day.

Every dish Food52 posts always looks amazing.  Even things I would never eat in a million years.  Even things I’m allergic to.  I still want them.  Their Instagram is incredible, their blog is even better.

    I’ve had my eye on those dress shirt bodysutis from J Crew for a while – my biggest complaint with dress shirts is the endless tucking. The only reason I haven’t pulled the trigger is that my office is super casual so I don’t think I’d get much wear out of them. If anyone does try them, though, let me know what you think!

  2. Anna says:

    I am in love with that velvet moto jacket but they are all out of smalls. Any similar options? I’m devastated I missed out on this…

  3. Deb says:

    Love the Macklemore tune also!
