“It is an ironic habit of human beings to run faster when we have lost our way.” — Rollo May

Toned Up. What the tone of your voice should sound like during tricky work conversations.

In the Clutch. This metallic box clutch from Aqua is perfect for summer weddings.

The Honey Trap. Could your Tinder flirtation be with a paid impersonator?

Protect and Defend. Wear Sunscreen — Invisible Shield for face, Supergoop for body.

Armor Plated. How one woman’s “cartoonishly sexist” office changed the way she dressed for work.

Wrapped Up. Behold, summer travelers, the cozy $68 wrap cardigan that will keep you warm in planes, trains, and automobiles.

Mind the Gap. Asking about past salary fuels the gender pay gap; here’s how to fix it.




Do you have a favorite summer wine?  A rose or white or red that you just can’t wait to drink on a crisp June night while sitting outside?

For me the wine I love all summer long is the Isabel Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Rose.  It’s a darker rose that’s really crisp and zesty.  Plus, it’s $15.  You really can’t beat that.  Leave your wine suggestions in the comments!

    Casal Garcia Vinho Verde. It’s in between a champagne and moscato (in my opinion) and super cheap.

    The Armour Plated article is insane! It was interesting to read that and I immediately questioned what I would do in that position. Wow.

    My go-to summer wine is Gerard Bertrand’s rose, cotes des roses. It has a nice flavour, not too sweet.
    The bottle is beautiful AND it has a glass stopper, not a cork so it’s perfect for those spring picnics or sunsets on the Seine.
    Now if only it would STAY warm here in Paris…

    Pretty much any pinot noir rose. Haven’t found one I dislike yet.

    The link to the Invisible Shield sunscreen isn’t working. What sunscreen is it? I’m dying to know what you recommend for the face, as I’m looking for a new face sunscreen!

    My favorite rose wine is from Josh Cellars – and I find it for $10 at Trader Joe’s. Goes perfectly with a charcuterie plate, baguette, and outdoor movie in the park!

    I love Fire Road Sauvignon Blanc. It has a hint of carbonation, or it may just be in my head. But it’s my go to, especially in the summer. Yum. Now I want to open a bottle and sit outside…
