5 Essentials for a Fabulous Career

Many young professional women are in the same boat: We’re in our early 20s, starting fresh careers with well let’s just call them “interesting” paychecks which contradict our big aspirations and dreams we’ve been yearning for since that first job interview. And while the monetary amount you’ve always wished and hoped for will come some day @KhaleejiGirl, hopefully soon, meanwhile you need to look the part. No, not the part of someone yearning and wanting more than ever to be rich but more of the part that looks like a presentable professional woman. Since you would be on a stricter budget during your 20s, it would be a wise investment to invest in a few statement pieces that could complete y

First, Let Me Take a #Selfie

It has become more of a commonality than a trend for people to stop whatever it is they’re doing in their lives for a moment to take a #selfie. More often than not there’s usually no purpose behind it- no historical building behind them, no beautiful landscape, and no special reason to take a picture of themselves other than the fact that they can reverse the camera on the phone and then share it on social media so the rest of the world can gaze upon it as well. Then again, maybe #selfies are a sign of self-esteem a sign of someone loving themselves where they broadcast the image to the world. Or maybe it is a person’s 15 minutes of fame within their own circle of friends as an attempt to g

Dealing with a Bad Boss

You know what I’m talking about. That one boss you may have had who’s also been inconsiderate of you.

Am I Turning into my Mother?

She yelled at you to stop wearing so much eye makeup in middle school. It took her a while to approve of any guy you thought was cute unless she thought he was a somewhat respectful young man worthy or her daughter’s love. She always noticed when you gained a few pounds and never failed to make a comment. Never. She’s your mom- if not her than who’s better to point these things out to you? Mothers and daughters are biologically programmed to fight. And, of course, as young girls, we swore we weren’t going to be like our moms when we got older.
