The Edition: No. 55

Oct 29, 2018

The secret of your success is determined by your daily agenda. — John C. Maxwell

Shhh. How being underestimated made these women more successful.

Hauled. This cool backpack holds a 15″ laptop and costs just $89.

Tick-Tock. Becoming a “Time Realist” Was Annoying, but Enlightening.

Dressed. $29 Sweater + $19 Skirt + $16 Navy Earrings + $9 Tights + $27 Bootie = $100 for a better-than business casual outfit.

Roar. The one piece of advice women need most about their careers isn’t about their job.

Saved. Extra-50% off at Outnet’s Mid-season Sale. Lots of cool sunglasses.

Adorned. Chico’s has the best affordable jewelry. I love this $19 beaded necklace.

Ahh. What is an informational interview?  And what should you ask your interviewer?

Painted. Sephora’s holiday gifts are out. Get them while they’re hot!

Splish-Splash. How long you should be washing your face for a real clean.

Grown. Did you know you can buy succulents (and cool pots to put them in) on Amazon?

Ch-Ching. Women aren’t convinced the economy is red hot. #notimpressed

    On being underestimated: I work in a field of IT where there aren’t many women. I have to give most people props for not being surprised when I’m darn good at it, but I have been to a few conferences as presenter or booth staff where I got the “Do you really work there?” questions or the raised eyebrow condescension as if they are thinking “what could this girl possibly tell me that I haven’t already thought of?”. When their jaws dropped I will tell you I felt what those women felt, they had underestimated me and they had been wrong to do so. For the most part, they accepted it gracefully and hopefully learned an important life lesson and something about FCoE.

    On being a time optimist: What a great phrase! In my personal life I am a time realist in that I know I cannot get much done with a 5-year-old in the house. But at work I am a time optimist and often look at the clock or the calendar and wonder to myself “where did the morning / day / week go??” there was so much more I thought I could get done. Fascinating!

    I love the $100 outfit suggestion. However, multiple shipping fees add up. Do you have tricks to avoid them? Consider posting outfits from one retailer to avoid extra shipping fees.

Too Many Tabs: April 19, 2024

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

The Find: My Best Workout Shorts

For eight years, I have worn the same workout shorts. Every year, an influencer tries to sell me new shorts. I order them. I try them on. They pale in comparison to the shorts I already own. I return them.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
