This corduroy bag from http://www.infusion.etsy.com/ looks like the perfect bag for any and every day! Great gray color and awesome mother of pearl button on the front! It's being added to my favorites! $45

I absolutely love this Simple Pearl Necklace from http://www.sparklecouture.etsy.com/!!! It's so simple and so chic. Pearl is also my birthstone so I guess I'm a little partial. But what woman doesn't like the simple yet classy look of pearls! $29

Who can resist the simple little t-shirt. This Nature Tree Metallic Leaf t-shirt is the perfect fit for going out anywhere! Especially with Earth Day on it's way! I love it because it's very subtle, but very unique. And also very WEARABLE!!! It's found at http://www.apheele.etsy.com/. $28

(Another) One of those days....

So while I work for a great company and it's my first job directly out of college, I find that many of the people I work with are under utilized. It's unbelievable the types of tasks that we do. Would you believe that "Party" (names will remain anonymous) who sits across from me is contemplating getting her masters and has a bachelors in HR is LAMINATING papers. Does that seem like a job for a college graduate? Pretty soon, I'll be opening mail and I'm in the same educational boat.
It's very funny that we pay all this money to go to school because that's what we are supposed to do where after we are launched into the real world with mounds of debt and then we find jobs that pay us pennies only to find that we are doing tasks that didn't need continued schooling in the first place. I find it annoying that most jobs want a college education in order for you to qualify for the job but then if you get the job, they have you alphabetizing and filing.
It's been one of those days. It's been one of those days where you look online for a new job and read about all of these self-made millionaires who want "to help you do the same thing." "Just pay $79.95 upfront and we'll unlock the secrets to success." My question is, did they go to school because if they did, then that $79.95 is part of a student loan payment and how did they unlock the "success?"
Times are hard. Where I live, gas went up to $3.45/gallon yesterday. Times are getting to be very expensive and tight. Why is it so hard to make things work anymore? Especially financially. It's painful to go into work everyday to know that you are under appreciated, undervalued, underestimated, and underpaid. It seems like those who work from home and own their own businesses and and who are their own bosses seem to be doing ok. It's hard when "easiness" just falls into some people's laps. This is why I think we all should be our own bosses.
We all have many talents that aren't utilized and are often pushed under the rug at day jobs. Why not take that power that we have and make something of it? Working on working from home is a task in itself though. I just think that we'd all be a lot happier, successful, and rested if we actually got to do what we are good at and feel the accomplishment that would come with that.
It's just been one of those days and I'm sure we've all had them. When I figure out what I'll do from home.....I'll write about that.



Well, this week has gone by pretty fast. I've been working, skating, passing and failing skating tests, and trying to keep my house clean. Now it's Friday and I don't see relaxation in the near future.

Tomorrow we will be going to a wedding. My boyfriends cousin is getting married, or at least I think that's who it is. That should be an interesting ALL DAY Saturday event. Always fun. I'm hoping to work on my resume, along with my mother's, to give them both some needed zest. And of course, I'm always working on Verre Chic. Sunday may prove to have a little down time in the evening hours.

Friday's just aren't what they used to be. They used to mean a break from the reality of grown up life. They used to involve friends, trips, family, and rest. Not anymore. Now Fridays are only a tease that makes you wonder how long the weekend will really be. Well, hopefully this Friday, night at least, will prove to be productive.

For now, I have to go back to the almost over reality of the work week. 3 hours and 38 min left for mine.
