Bridged. Asking for a New Year raise? AAUW offers a negotiating class.

Suited. Ann Taylor is having a big sale. I picked up a camel suit for court.

Solo’ed. How to cope with the holiday season when you’re single.

Topped. The Rack has great leather jackets. I love this rose-colored one.

Freed. Everything you need to know about quitting your job.

Punchy. This pretty, puffed-sleeve Minkoff sweatshirt is so fun.

Viewed. The most hopeful images from 2019.

Sold. 50% off at Banana Republic. I’m thinking this leopard dress for NYE.

Chatted. Holiday small talk tips for surviving work parties.

Glittered. Stila’s liquid eyeshadows are great for the holidays.

Extended. When does a boyfriend or girlfriend become part of the family?

Partied. These green velvet jeans caught my eye, or go for a velvet skirt.

    The Atlantic article is such a lovely piece-thanks for all that you share!

  3. Denise says:

    Loved reading the ‘solo for the holidays’ article.

    I am newly single for the first time in 17 years. The last time I was single social media didn’t even exist! I’m going to adopt the author’s attitude around seeing the possibilities rather than stewing in jealousy. Onwards and upwards.

  4. Erin says:

    Thank you for the Atlantic photos. Brings to mind a line from my favorite poem, Desiderata, “With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.”

  5. Kathleen says:

    Thanks for the Seeing Yourself as a Leader podcast link Abra. It looks like I’m unexpectedly becoming a manager in the New Year and this is perfectly timed.
