The Edition: No. 216

Mar 16, 2021

Try to keep your soul young and quivering right up to old age. // George Sand (who was a woman, by the way)

+ Is this the end of the ‘Girlboss’?

+ This WFH/casual utility shirt is so comfortable I could sleep in it.

+ “Pandemic brain” is why you can’t focus.

+ This Everlane sweater with a wide weave is perfect for spring.  Just add white denim.

+ “Take your full lunch break. Schedule your PTO.” Great advice.

+ It’s time for SPF: This Supergoop one disappears completely and their Resetting Spray will touch you up after you’ve applied makeup.

+ Wait, did people not know influencer ‘mirror pics’ are faked?

+ Need to drink more water? Discounted Hydroflasks can help.

+ Women are losing their career ambition during the pandemic. Duh.

+ My new spring work shoes from Ann Taylor are comfy and professional.

+ ‘Eggroll in a bowl’ is just a vehicle to eat more vegetables.

+ Bring on the color with this plus-size dress in pink or orange and this misses size one in cobalt or pink.

Long Read. Behind the Scenes at a Five-Star Hotel.

In Portuguese, ‘saudade’ means to give the loss of that could have been.  Click through Mari Andrew’s Instagram for the rest of the story.

    In regards to the PTO article. If you are working in an actual office. Don’t eat lunch at your desk even if you are reading a book or doing something just for you. I had a supervisor who would see me eating lunch and reading a magazine and she would demand that I take calls simply because I was at my desk. When I tried to push back, it became an HR thing. Fortunately I moved on to another company that respected their employees.

    Re: “the last word,” there is a really beautiful NYTimes piece that talks about the benefits of naming and acknowledging the losses you’ve suffered over the last year, even if they’re “not as bad” as the losses others have suffered.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
