Why I Didn't Shop #LillyforTarget

Unless you've been living under a rock, you probably know that this past weekend, Target released their much-hyped Lilly for Target collection, which sold out completely in hours, and in some stores in minutes.

What Happens After You Say 'I Do'?

Recently, my girlfriend and I were chatting about our kids and our husbands and she shared how she wished her marriage was as perfect as mine.  I was taken aback because my marriage is a lot of things, but perfect it is not!  If she knew me and my husband right after we were married, she certainly would not characterize my marriage as 'perfect'.During that first year, past relationship baggage and my idealistic expectations of what a husband is supposed to be, had us both wondering if tying the knot had been the right thing to do....more

Sorry, I Won't Be Bringing My Dick to the Table

Guess what "BRDTTT" stands for? You won't get it, so I'll tell you. Bring Your Dick to the Table. Apparently the artist—and I use that term loosely—believes women can keep these expensive little pet cocks in their pockets to grab on to when they lose confidence in, for example, themselves in a business situation with men.

Yes! All of this, but what really stuck was, "I do not need a penis in my pocket to be a ... more

How to Create a Professional-Looking Email Signature

A professional and briefly informative email signature is very important for anyone who sends a lot of business emails. Including bloggers. You want your recipients to know who you are (name, position, and company), as well as all the methods they can use to reach you. Secondary email, social media, or phone number if you’re OK with giving it out.A simple text email is all you need, but I like to take mine a few steps farther. Really, which would you prefer?
