So what areas in your office might be making you sick?

Office Reception

Like an eye is to the body, the reception desk is to the office. It picks up everything. The sweaty bike courier. The boss’s kids. The tradesmen fixing the broken lights. They all come through reception, touching the door handles, the pens, the water cooler. Think about how many people pass through reception day in, day out, all the germs they bring through those front doors. Could your reception be making you sick? Continue reading »

Three Ways To Recreate Your Little Black Dress

There are few items that are absolute must-haves in a woman’s closet than a little black dress! Little black dresses or LBD are undying in the fashion-sphere, and they are perfect for an evening dress or a cocktail.

Not made for selfie

Do you have a friend who is always pretty in selfies?

I know, irritating right? Because us girls have this hidden goal in life, that is to feel (and sometimes look) good about ourselves. And how do we do that? By comparing ourselves to others. Most often than not, we compare ourselves to the people surrounding us: our girlfriends, our office-mates, our neighbors, that girl in the coffee shop. I know it’s not healthy but admit it, we (sometimes) feel good if we look much better than the people around us. Why do you think fashion and trendy clothes are so profitable? It’s because they survive and feed on our insecurities.

If you have body issues, we do this all the time. Crooked teeth? Flat chest? It’s okay, at least I have an expensive bag, or a nicer shirt, or even VS undies.

I do have those insecurities. Sadly, I don’t have those fancy things, but you get my drift yeah? We focus on the other good things about us, sure we’re good people who pay our taxes, donate to goodwill and whatever ViralNova-worthy things we do but people on the social media can’t really see that. Because believe it or not, us humans have this innate longing to be noticed and to belong.

So back to the blessed bitches who looked divine in selfies. Obviously I’m not one of them. I’m cool with that. I look good in front of the mirror anyway. I woke up with a faint blush on my cheeks and my hair was gorgeous when I removed it from its bun. I looked perf to be honest and it put a smile on my face even and that’s even before coffee. That’s huge, mind you.

If only I could capture that with my brand new iPhone so that I could post a photo of me with the hashtags #humblebrag #gorgeous #perfect, that would be glorious.

P.S. In case you didn’t get the tone of this post, read it again with sarcasm. And my iPhone is old boohoo. Not really hehe.
