Mixed Monday

Mixed Monday

Happy Monday, dames! I just finished a spin class at the gym, and after ignoring myself in this department for almost 10 days due to a hectic schedule, it felt great to SWEAT. It’s Monday, spring is ALMOST in the air, and the sun is actually shining in Montreal.

Today is sort of a mixed bag, so I titled it Mixed Monday. Wanted to keep you updated about some events, revelations and conclusions… WomenOnTheFence style.

INTERVIEW: The Secret To Success and How To Live Your Passion With Adam Braun

INTERVIEW: The Secret To Success and How To Live Your Passion With Adam Braun

“Four years ago, I sat at my desk overlooking the Manhattan skyline from the 25th floor of 3 Times Square. I was in my mid-twenties, earning a six-figure salary at Bain & Company, which has now been rated the #1 global consulting firm by Consulting Magazine for 11 years straight. I looked down at the drafted email on my desktop, took a deep breath, and pressed send. The email notified more than 400 coworkers and friends that I was leaving what I’d previously believed was my dream job to pursue the non-profit I had founded, Pencils of Promise (PoP).

International Day Of HAPPINESS!

Oh my goodness, the truth is, I wasn’t planning on blogging today, but after seeing this, I had to share. Today is International Day of Happiness, and watching this made me, well… HAPPY! And I know it will make you happy too.
Watch this cover of Pharrell’s hit HAPPY, sung by the Detroit Academy of Arts and Sciences choir. Let’s just hope these kids are the future of Detroit. I’m in love.

Wordless Wednesday: RIP L’Wren Scott

Wordless Wednesday: RIP L’Wren Scott

The devastating news of the death of L’Wren Scott has sent waves of shock and compassion through the worlds of fashion in New York and London. The loss of such a figure of grace, fun, and multidimensional talents seems incomprehensible. Always poised, always publicly reticent and privately considerate of her clients and friends, L’Wren was a self-made designer who was proud of building an independent business, which she kept scrupulously separate from her status as the girlfriend of Sir Mick Jagger. “I am doing this with my own money,” she said, on launching her own collection in 2006. “My life’s always been like that. It’s how I was raised.” – Vogue Magazine

Friendships in Our Thirties and Forties

Friendships in Our Thirties and Forties

A friend of mine forwarded me a recent article from the New York Times titled “Friends of a Certain Age.
Why Is It Hard to Make Friends Over 30?” The argument states that the period for making B.F.F.’s, the way you did in your teens or early 20s, is pretty much over. It’s time to resign yourself to “situational adult friends.”

And another Wordless Wednesday: Today is also the 25th birthday of the World Wide Web! Happy Birthday WWW dot!

#BanBossy? Great. But May I Also Add #BanBitchy

#BanBossy? Great. But May I Also Add #BanBitchy

“When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a “leader.” Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded “bossy.” Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys—a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead. Pledge to Ban Bossy.” -BanBossy.com

I am SO excited to write about this today, and even more excited to get your feedback. The ever-inspiring rockstar Sheryl Sandberg just launched her latest baby – the Ban Bossy Movement (along with Girl Scouts of America). Sheryl, I applaud you. It’s a brilliant initiative. I have been a long-time supporter of yours as you can see here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/erica-diamond/leaping-in_b_2862847.html
