    That article on confidence is fantastic! Thanks for sharing

    • LaUren says:

      It was an interesting article. I just turned 39, and I don’t know if it’s that I’m more confident than when I was younger, or if it’s just that I don’t care about the same things anymore. Or I definitely care much less than I used to. I’ve gotten better at noticing what takes up space in my thoughts, and not just passively believing everything that pops into my head about myself.

  2. AB says:

    Totally identify with this. I think around 37 something changed. I suddenly had a lot more people working for me and more visibility, and instead of the adrenaline dump, panic attacks, I started only focusing on what information or direction people needed from me. It totally changed my mindset, and I no longer gave a sh*t what anyone thought about me, as long as they had what they needed to be successful. The unintended consequence was that I came across as super confident. I’ve been told I am cool under pressure, and like I have a “force field.” I definitely don’t feel like that on the inside! I just always focus on making sure whoever I’m with feels comfortable and leaves with all their questions answered. ????‍♀️

    Re: the Instead of ‘I’m sorry’ article… am I the only one who finds ‘thank you for your patience’ irritating when someone is late? Not only have you kept me waiting, you’ve now presumed patience on my behalf. I much prefer a quick apology and moving on, or simply thanking me for waiting.

Shopbop’s Best Slight-Splurges

Recently, I decided to stop buying so much fast fashion. True, some of my favorite pants and dresses came from Old Navy and H&M, and there’s nothing wrong with snagging a deal on something you’ll really wear. But I’m moving into spring with a new shopping mentality.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
