Red Hot or Pretty in Pink. Which Will You Be?

Pretty in Pink Let’s face it: Valentine’s Day can be a very stressful holiday. For instance, if you’re single commuting to work on Valentine’s Day you’ll notice every couple holding hands, stealing a kiss or posing for a picture-perfect moment in front of Times Square. On an ordinary morning, you wouldn’t even recognize these moments because you’re too busy dodging these said couples on your way to work after the trainee barista at Starbucks just messed up your coffee order.

On the other hand, if you’re taken your desk will be flooded with roses and your office-mates will be throwing all the “Ooh’s” and “Ahh’s” at you…and eying that luxurious chocolate that has yet to be opened. You know your significant other has planned a romantic, candlelit dinner for the two of you at a restaurant you don’t often venture to.

There is, however, one thing in common on Valentine’s Day whether you are single or taken, and that’s looking like you just walked out of a photo shoot. We’re talking hair done, sultry makeup and an outfit that’s going to make you the center of attention. That’s where we come in! (more…)

Because it’s Wednesday & We All Need Hump Day Inspiration

YouTube Preview Image

This morning as I was driving into work this song by Baz Luhrmann came on the radio. I haven’t heard it since high school and it instantly brought a smile to my tired face.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Everybody’s Free To Wear Sunscreen, here’s a little background: In 1997, columnist Mary Schmich wrote an essay for the Chicago Tribune giving much-needed life advice to youths. The advice from this famous essay serve as the lyrics to Luhrmann’s song.

Take an extra five minutes out of your day to listen to this song. It’s some of the best life advice I’ve ever heard. Of course, never take anything for granted. I hope this gets you through the rest of your workweek.

Happy Hump Day, everyone!
