It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves. — Edmund Hillary

Spread Around. You deserve to take up space. Here’s how to make it a habit.

Dropped Down. These $30 drop earrings are chic and versatile.

Filling Up. What to do when work is slow to make the most of the lull.

Topped Off. Ann Taylor is offering 50%-off two tops, code TOPTHAT. I love this mock neck top and this floral sleeveless shirt.

Helping Out. How to support a friend dealing with infertility.

Lifted Up. These Enzo Angiolini Mary Janes are awesome for work and just $50.

Worked Over. Tips for Negotiating Your Job Offer Like a Boss.

Sing Out. This wireless, waterproof speaker makes a good HS grad gift.

Staying In. Men in Spain got paternity leave. They ended up wanting fewer kids.

Bagged Up. This canvas weekender from Cuyana is a great bag for under-$200.  Or try this Sole Society bag for $90.

Calling Out. How to give feedback that works without hurting anyone.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?  This New York Times article features some wonderful advice.  Lots of gems.

For me, the best advice I’ve received recently is that “nothing takes longer than the task you haven’t started.”  Basically, it’s the tasks you put off that haunt you the most.  It’s helped my procrastination to repeat that phrase in my head when I’m putting something off that needs to get done.

    Could you link the NYT article?

  2. Jess says:

    We have friends who just recently moved here from Spain. And as the article suggests, I’d be more inclined to think it was the economy (which is and has been rather awful for a very long time) than staying at home for two to five weeks. An interesting fact from our friends, is that many Spanish adults live with their parents well into an age that we would think inappropriate here in the States. That may also prove to be a reason why people are choosing to not have more kids.

      I wonder why women would inversely want more children during the same time period then?

      • Anna says:

        I thought that was the more interesting stat. The number of men wanting kids seemed to be in a steady decline that just continued.

    • Anna says:

      That’s more a cultural thing though and hasn’t really changed drastically with the economic issues. It’s pretty common with Latin American families too (my dad moved out when he got married at 28).
