Let’s get real, expecting your bundle of joy is a beautiful thing. Dressing it every day for work can be a tad more challenging, especially when you can’t see your feet or when you look like you’re about to topple over any second. Yet it’s not about because we’re giving life, that we should give up on (professional) style. So […]

Got A Love Jones For Your Career?
Ask me to list my favorite romantic movies of all times, and Love Jones is pretty sure to feature right next to the top. If you’ve seen the 1997 movie featuring my imaginary boyfriend Larenz Tate (he doesn’t know yet) and the ever-gorgeous and talented Nia Long as two artsy lovebirds on the rebound from Chicago, then you know all […]

Stripes are in this Spring, but not just your regular, flat navy stripes. I’m actually going diagonal (stripes that is) today with this Rag&Bone long-sleeve blouse, perfect for the office and after hours. Loving the classic cut of this basic top, which features an elegant caftan neckline and flattering surplice front. But it’s the shirttail back that turns heads on […]

Are You Cheating On Your MarriageWith Your Career?
I have a confession: I sleep with my laptop…Right there, on my bedside, with the green light winking at me…I may even, sometimes, rest the palm of my hand on it to make sure it’s still right there in the wee hours of morning, when I jump out of bed to write…It’s not an obsession, it’s just a treacherous relationship, […]

Why Loving what you do matters 4
What would you do even if you weren’t paid for it? That’s the question most career or life coaches will ask you when trying to determine your passions and interests. Pretty generic, right? I mean, I could try on designer shoes all day until my feet beg for mercy, if you ask me… But really, even as we make our […]

Listen, there’s nothing cute about painfully treading your way through the snow with weather-inappropriate shoes, even especially when they’re super cute…But that’s not a reason to walk around like whodunnitandwhy just because New England’s weather decided to go crazy and jump from spring-like 60 degrees to sub-zero/snow storm/end of the world temperatures… So for all the sisters out there still […]

Hidden Figures Movie - Photo credit: youtube.com
After weeks of anticipation and Internet-scouring, I finally left the kids with their dad, fixed my ‘fro, and went on a girl-movie-date with my sis-in-law to see “Hidden Figures“. I have to say, I was both excited and a bit apprehensive. There comes a point when, as a Black or minority person, you get slightly weary of watching anything reminiscent of […]
