Last week, my new employer sent me to Dallas for some training. I was afraid to go for fear of getting Ebola and also I hate flying. But both things were silly. The trip went effortlessly, except for the taxi ride from the airport to the hotel. OH EM GEE LAWD! And I didn’t see anyone wearing those surgical masks while I was traveling either. Everyone was on their best behavior!
I was flipping through Vanity Fair the other day, the one with Robert Downey Jr. on the cover? And I came across a new book coming out by Penguin Press at the end of October. It is called Bohemians, Bootleggers, Flapper, & Swells. It is the best of early Vanity Fair.
I used to be able to walk around and stand in high heels all the time. Well, maybe not for 8 and 9 hours at a time. And certainly not on a concrete floor. So, I had to break down and get some comfortable shoes for my new positions with Jo Malone London.
Y’all say a prayer for me today. I am Dallas-bound for some training with Jo Malone London. I’m living out loud and getting on a plane with no masks, no hazmat suit, or anti-bacterial wipes. I’m just gonna go for it.
With my new career, calls for a whole new look, not just in clothing but in makeup and appearance as well. The attire is black with a pop of white. Or black pants and white top but normally I wear a black jacket over my white top. I think it just looks classier. It is a more polished look with a jacket.
While it was somewhat sad but a whole big scary to leave my prior job to start a new different career, I have to confess that I am having a ball. I am love, love, loving my new position with Jo Malone London.
Listen, every day that I go to CrossFit is a new personal record, trust me. Ha! But, this morning was a little different. I have done Overhead Squats (OHS) before and I remember the last time I did a 1RM of a OHS was at 70# or 75#. So, this morning when we actually worked for 15 minutes on finding a 1RM of an OHS I knew I wanted to try for a new PR – on purpose!
I start my new career tomorrow with Estee Lauder as a Jo Malone London Senior Stylist. This, of course, requires a new planner. I loved my Moleskine bullet journal while working at my previous job. It came in handy and worked well with both work and personal. But I don’t need a bullet journal for my new position with Jo Malone London.
Well hello there my little Love Bunnies and Moxie Bees! I hope you are doing well and have big plans for the upcoming weekend. I am going to a wedding tomorrow! It’s always nice to be in the presence of a blissful union.
I decided to attend the soft opening of the new Belk at Bridge Street in Huntsville. I mainly wanted to go to see the counter at Jo Malone – a British luxury lifestyle brand and part of the Estee Lauder family.
No, Loretta doesn’t drink coffee. I overheard her tell that to our host when she first stepped off the elevator of the Women’s Business Center where Loretta was about to give a talk.
I just learned about Storify this weekend, thanks to my friend Constance Smith. So I thought I’d share our New Orleans trip through Storify. It was a good trip, it was work-related and that was good too. The Gent and I did find some time to get out and about to enjoy the local culture.
