Workday Reading

The Edition: No. 198

Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened. // Rev. Billy Graham

+ “Women’s work” can no longer be taken for granted.

+ I can’t say enough good things about these wide leg work pants.

+ America’s daughters grow up to be women it can’t handle.

+ Don’t miss my favorite tights when the weather turns cold.

+ ‘Is my job the problem, or is it me?’

+ My favorite concealer and concealer brush are now available at Ulta.

+ What is early menopause, and how to prepare for it.

+ Gap has so many cute pajamas; this star print is lovely.

+ Do you think it matters how you end your e-mails?

+ The Reiss Outlet is amazing. This blouse looks great with black suits.

+ See inside Rome’s secure vault for housing stolen art.

+ This brushed funnel neck sweater is so unbelievably cozy.

Long Read. What’s the catch with a $99,000 condo in NYC?

It’s been a hard week.  Enter mug cake.  Sometimes mug cake recipes lead to a chalky and unappetizing product.  But this S’Mores Mug Cake from How Sweet Eats is actually pretty good.

So if you love sweets, but you shouldn’t bake a whole cake and eat your way through it while watching Bake Off on Netflix (who would do that?!), try this mug cake.

Prefer pie?  Jean has a recipe for simple apple pies that used crescent dough and makes individual servings.  Don’t miss it.

    Wow, this must be a top10 edition post. The Cut article is really well done, the work advice cut through the fog, the pajamas are cute, and my signature petpeeve is having “thanks” as a canned sign off on every message.
