I recently read Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg and it has changed my life and the way I look at my career and the impact I have on my own happiness with regards to work. As I said, there are so many people I know who are right now, at this very second, looking to make a change and going for a job interview is not unlike going on a date. We preen and prance and fluff and truss all in the hope that the person sitting on the opposite side of the table will see something worth investing in. And while your skills have a massive role to play in this process, your confidence and your belief in yourself does too.
Friends! As I mentioned on Instagram earlier this morning, Kim and I are going to be introducing a new series to the blog, this is the new series by the way. We’ve realised (through our exploits in frugality) that we experience wonderful things every single week and not all of them are as a result of a purchase, we read, we eat, we meet, we experience… So every week, starting from today, we will be sharing five things that have truly sparked that joy during the course of the week.
It feels like the perfect time to do a light winter update to your wardrobe. I have put together a quick list of 20 items from their standard and plus size ranges. All of these items would be great for work, home or outings.
I am a last minute packer. When travelling for work I usually pack the night before or the morning of my trip. Why? Because I have waxed a packing formula that serves me so well, I just don’t need that much time to pack. It hasn’t always been this way though.
I have been on a mission, a MISSION I tell you, to incorporate more prints and patterns into my wardrobe. You guys, I have lived a life of bland and I am so over it. That whole business about not mixing prints is so tired and it is about time we put that nonsense to rest, once and for all. I am here today to tell you, in no uncertain terms, that you can, NAY, you SHOULD be mixing your prints.
