Workday Reading

The Edition: No. 71

There is nothing more exhausting than the task you never started.Happier in Hollywood podcast work mantra*

*We’ll talk more about work mantras on Wednesday.  I just wanted to leave this right here, because the tasks I never started are definitely a source of anxiety as the week goes on.  Maybe I can remind myself of that as the week goes on.

Assured. Need help making decisions?  Try the 20-minute rule.

Festive. Need V-Day attire?  Try these embroidered smoking slippers.

Plumped. Do collagen supplements actually do anything for your skin?

Feminine. This vine-printed blouse and pink blazer for work, so gorgeous.

Targeted. How to identify if you’re a victim of gaslighting at work.

Saved. Bloomingdale’s is having a huge sale. This BOSS dress and this Frame blouse are in my cart. Looking for something under-$100? This sweater is fabulous.

Lapsed. What you need to know about makeup expiration dates.

Striped. Love this fuchsia puff-sleeve top and ruffled collar blouse from C/Meo.

Office art — it’s so hard to find affordable wall decor.  The Etsy store The Peoples Prints has great art for your office or for your home.  The pink and navy pieces above are nice.  I also like the moodiness of this dark navy and metallic painting.

    Thank you for the top quote! I’m sitting here staring at a blank page and trying to start writing my dissertation – every little reminder that starting will make it better is helpful. Best of luck to you on your un-started tasks!
