Save. Spend. Splurge.

In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: If you’re so rich, why are you still working 70 hours a week?

This article completely resonated with me and the whole reason why I stopped working for a company as a consultant. To make it to Partner, or head level, you need to work long hours starting from a junior, flying in and out of cities all the time, at the cost of your lifestyle, your family and sanity.

I realized early on after I put in my dues that I’d rather work less for less money than more for more money. Luckily, the tables flipped and I work less for more money, the best of any situation.

The DRAMA of this beautiful top from MM Lafleur that could be a cape as well if you let it down, has my name all over it. I think when I go back to NYC next year, I’ll be out a lot of cash.

I know deep down this Barbie Dream Gap Project to show and get little girls under the age of 5 and beyond to see that they too can be in STEM, be pilots, and so on, is probably a massive marketing ploy to sell Barbies to enlightened parents (Okay, it totally is), but I am sucked in by their marketing anyway and love the idea, even if it is capitalistic.

“Starting at age 5, many girls begin to develop limiting self-beliefs.”

I have MM Lafleur fever right now because this Gosia wrap dress is calling my name. I love the curved hem, the long belt, everything about it.

15 Financial Windfalls and how people spent them… Money changed everything for them. I like these kinds of posts because it gives you insight into what other people value.

Does anyone remember a blog from way back called My Milk Toof? It was SO CUTE and I loved it when she posted new images daily. Sadly, Inhae has stopped blogging, and all that is left are these lovely books she sells on Amazon which I am sure she makes a living from.

If I have layovers, I do wait longer in the airport, but just getting there early (I have a fear of being late), I can be there for at least an hour or more. Airport retail is capitalizing on that. I have noticed bigger airports have looked a lot more open and chic than in past years.

The office waffles from being an inferno to being chilly, and having this MM Lafleur Angelou wrap on call has been a godsend for me. I have it in two colours – ivory and charcoal. It even comes in NAVY! If that is too ‘lady’ for you, try this super chic Leigh cardigan from them.
