It has been a VERY long time since I last posted on this blog. Life has been hectic to say the least initially wrapping up job interview processes; juggling job offers (still cannot believe I got three within a week, after over four months unemployed) &, ultimately, starting a new analytic role at a renewable energy company downtown. 

I absolutely love my new job but still have SO much to learn about this extremely complex and ever-changing industry. So with little time for fun “stuff” this blog fell by the way-side as did sleep and taking care of myself really. The good news is I am back!

QOTD - Entrepreneurship

Funny how inspiration always rears it's head at an unexpected time. The various communications about an upcoming reunion from my alma mater, Babson College, have recently led to frequent visits it's website. Given I have been in a period of unemployment, the last thing I expected was to feel connected to that placed which formed the foundation of my professional career. But then there it was, a definition of entrepreneurship as told by Stephanie which caused me to light up with hope and illusion. Because, whether facing rejection for a job application or a business plan, that drive to continue is priceless.

TheHandbagEdit - Clutchin' on to Summer Sales

Now on Sale! (all images via SSense)
Summer is in full swing and we have now celebrated Independence Day in the U.S. This can only mean that sales are in full swing! Rather than get sad and stressed we are getting closer to lower temps, it is best to embrace the warm weather and see how the the retail schedules benefit us ladies! (we must aid retailers in making space for fall wares)

My take is always, always, be alert for accessories when on sale as they hold value much longer than any top or skirt will. And now you get to benefit from my prowl! Here are four amazing luxury bags under $500!!

ShoppingTips - Rock the Job Hunt

What do I wear to an interview?! (image via

Summer means many things; apparently, it means an uptick in those on the job market, as those recent college grads, those with summers off and the unemployed all hit the streets. As people begin taking vacations and things slow down for those of us unemployed, we really must focus our efforts on rocking that first impression. Since I had not been in the market for a new job since 2007 my sartorial options were nonexistent and job interview chic was an aspirational concept. That does not mean I broke the bank to put together an easy to grab and classic "land a job" look!

Ahh summer when days are longer and humidity is out of control. How to you keep your hair in check is a major question that (surely) keeps coming up in the minds of stylish ladies everywhere. Do you simply permanently slick it back? or, perhaps, you defiantly attempt to style it only tie it up in a knot two minutes out the door?! 

A major topknot fan, I also love flowy, bouncy, shiny hair. One of the best compliments I have received was when an acquaintance told me she would be calling me Pantene due to my awesome bouncy hair!
