The Edition: No. 82

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full. — Henry Kissinger

Raised Up. Women do ask for more money.  They just don’t get it.

Wrapped. This $30 skirt from Rack is a chic update to a simple black pencil skirt.

Redecorated. Small space design ideas for apartment dwellers.

Organized. Need bathroom storage? Try a beauty cart with built in plug-ins and some chic Yamazaki storage baskets.

Equalized. What would a world without sexism look like? (I would no longer get asked if I am my boss’s spouse at events.)

Nostalgic. Caboodles are back.  And every little girl I know needs one.

Kissed? Would you ever sign off a work e-mail with “xx”?  Some people do.

Woven. These natural baskets in large or medium are perfect for decorative storage.

Un-Gapped. Adidas announces it will pay male and female soccer players equal performance bonuses.

Summered. Mix this Gibson top, white denim, and this wood clutch for the perfect resort wear/summer date night attire.

Prepped.  A beginner’s guide to meal-prepping. (Try these glass containers.)

It’s almost barbecue and potluck season.  (Don’t @ me, I’m trying to think of summer, as I am trapped in unending winter.)  My biggest crowd-pleasing, easy dish is this Hot Mexican Corn Dip.  It’s easy, requires only a few ingredients, and is very tasty.  I like Cilantro, so I always add more.  And don’t forget to bring a few lime wedges for a burst of bright, fresh flavor.

    I love that corn dip. I eat it on EVERYTHING. It’s great with eggs for breakfast, on greens for lunch, etc. etc. 🙂

    From the Raised Up article… “women are more likely to be refused or suffer blow back for daring to broach the topic”

    Of course. Cue inner rage.

    *remembers that I’m 36, throws entire thing into the trash*

    *buys three tiered cart and baskets from blog post*

    How can I get the hot corn dip recipe? I do not have a facebook, or Pinterest account?
