Advice on How To Get a Job – From Someone Who Has a Job

11:15 AM

The unspoken secret in life is that no one knows what they’re doing. The people we consider “smart” are just better at guessing what’s to come. The president, Heidi Klum, your mom – they’re all winging it. If you want to get what you want, more specifically a job, you just have to convince everyone else that you know what you’re doing. The world is a superficial place where we assume things based on what we’ve experienced or stereotypes we’ve learned. Your first impression is EVERYTHING. Everything.

I understand wanting to be a wild, free individual and not wanting to cater to society and give in to social norms – but having pink cotton candy hair is not the most important thing. Think about who has had pink hair – P!nk, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, circus performers. If you’re applying for positions similar to theirs, then go ahead and dye your hair, otherwise I’m not sure if I’d trust a Nicki Minaj look-alike doing my taxes. (more…)

Hey Mom, Treat Yourself for Mother’s Day!

12:40 PM

Mother's DayOne of the toughest jobs in the world is to be a mother. It's nice to have one day a year that's guaranteed to appreciate all the hard work and effort mom's everywhere have to deal with on a daily basis. It would be nice if there were two, three…or four days dedicated to it! But we're just saying.

Obviously since it's Mother's Day you will receive gifts from your children saying how much they love you and that you are the best mom in the whole world. And while you may cherish and look forward to opening these precious gifts that may possibly get stowed away somewhere, eaten (you can't resist those chocolates) or die (I'm talking about flowers!), you should treat yourself. Yes, that's right. We want you to buy yourself something this Mother's Day! (more…)

Rachel’s Radar: Distinguished by Denim

11:15 AM

Current/ElliottDenim has been an all time favorite from season to season. The big three denim brands used to be Levi’s, Lee and Wrangler. Now there are so many different and trendy brands such as J Brand, , Citizens of Humanity and Current/Elliott just to name a few.

Denim Denim became popular with the youth in the 1950s as a symbol of teenage rebellion, in movies such as The Wild One. Jeans were not the “good girl good boy” style back in the day. Currently called jeans, earlier known as dungarees, are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. (more…)

Fashion Meets Baked by Melissa Cupcakes

3:46 PM

Baked by MelissaBaked by Melissa. Three words that can grab my attention in less than a second. I'm a huge cupcake lover and what can be better than mini cupcakes with wacky, but oh-so-yummy flavors? If you have never experienced the euphoria of Baked by Melissa, then you need to re-evaluate every decision you've made about cupcakes…and life (just kidding, kind of).

Aside from cupcakes (and every other morsel of food) I love shopping, I mean, what girl doesn't? Let's be serious. So I decided to combine my love for cupcakes, sometimes referred to as cuppycakes, with fashion because what can be better than outfits that remind me of one of my favorite foods? (more…)

Rachel’s Radar: Spring Cleaning!

12:00 AM

Luckily, spring is almost upon us! Spring cleaning is my favorite thing to do when the weather starts to warm up. It feels great to empty out my closet and organize myself, which makes me feel lighter all around. Plus, cleaning out my closet means more room for new clothes, and who doesn't want that?!

One of my go-to spring essentials is always a fresh white V-neck tee by Monrow. It's easy for whites to turn yellow from season to season and nothing feels dirtier to me than a slightly yellow tee that's meant to be white. Make sure to stock your closets with plenty of white tees that you can easily grab in a hurry to match any outfit. (more…)
