"I Want It All, and I Want It Now" is an amazing article on Glamour.com that I highly recommend reading. Here's an excerpt from the piece -- If you’re a young, smart, talented woman kicking ass at your office, nice work! But bosses around the country have a message for you: There’s a difference between being driven and being a “deserver,” and it’s up to you to walk that line. To read the best ways to make sure your boss sees you as dedicated, and not a deserver, be sure to check out the Glamour article here

Must Watch - Scandal


This weekend I was couch-ridden with a fever, so with homemade vegetable soup on the stove, Justin and I finally dove into the first season of Scandal, thanks to my sisters persistent campaigning. Holy cow, how have we not been watching this show. Kerry Washington's character Olivia Pope is refreshingly smart, powerful, and insanely stylish. We've already finished the first season and I'm dying to start the second. Revenge just got some major competition in my book.

My latest beauty discovery is these fabulously luxurious satin pillow cases that were created by my blogger friend Dale Janee of SavvySpice.com. Savvy Sleepers are the world's first unisex satin pillow cases designed to protect your hair from breakage, prevent morning face crinkles and maximize your hours in bed with a secret enclosed pocket. Pick up one of these pillow cases up for yourself here!

Not only did Taylor Swift totally kill it with her uh-mazing opening performance, the country darling also brought the fabulous on the red carpet in a stunning J. Mendel gown. My other two faves were Rihanna and Kelly Rowland.  Who was your best dressed at the Grammy's last night?

  38. I totally agree with your best dressed! Holy cut outs on Kelly Rowland, she was smoking! The red on RiRi was perfection and T.Swift rocked the white flowly number. LOVED! I also would have to add Florence W. in her custom emerald green Givenchy!

    That article is fantastic, and I'm really glad you shared it. As for the best-dressed... My top three were definitely Taylor, Rihanna, and Janelle Monae. I just can't resist super-fancy menswear, apparently.

  60. Solange Knowles didn't get any attention on the Red Carpet telecast but I've seen pictures of her emerald green gown and the girl killed it! I agree with your choices too. I also liked Carrie Underwood, however I would have preferred her to show off those envious legs!
