In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: Is Hustling Making us Happy?
1. Hustle .. harder?
This beauty serum is making the rounds because it makes foundation glide on smoother and look better without silicones. I am all about that if it works. I’m going to give it a shot after I get through all my serums.
I briefly toyed with the idea of paying for undereye fillers to try and avoid having to wear concealer every time I leave the house so that people stop asking me if I am tired or sick.
This Club Monaco shirtdress in stripes is giving me all the feels right now and if you’re not into stripes, they have a beautiful crisp white number… along with this button-front dress that is such a flattering shape for so many body types.

What should you do when your partner has traditional views on money? Mine is thoroughly modern (50/50 and we are not tied to the idea of him being the ‘provider’), but I liked the response.
I still find this Soho skirt from MM Lafleur the most versatile I’ve ever owned. I bought it when I was slimmer, I put on 20 pounds and it still fit beautifully, and draped like a dream. WINNER WINNER I say.
How to advance in your career without being a manager. I actually have never wanted to become a manager. Early on, I knew I did not enjoy managing (*cough* babysitting *cough*) people.

I started reading The Heretic Queen and I couldn’t put it down. I sometimes find biographies tedious but this one sucked me right in because it wasn’t just stating facts or talking about Nefertari’s life in a dry way – it was showing her life in a first-person point of view. FASCINATING. It truly sucked me in, I couldn’t stop reading until it was done.
