A new study was done on how couples manage their money together, and while some reports find the gender roles in money management surprising, most of us won’t. A new survey finds that women pay most of the household bills … More
In a classic facepalmingly stupid move, Huntsville, Alabama ABC affiliate WAAY TV reporter Shea Allen got fired for blogging about all the naughty things she did at work. And when you’re the literal face of a network, that’s even worse … More
There are some very famous sister pairs who work together. Ones that come to mind right away include Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Venus and Serena Williams, Jessica and Ashlee Simpson, all seven of the Kardashians, etc. They’ve all talked about how magical it is to work with their sisters and how every day is like heaven because they spend it with their best friends. But let’s get real. Those women are making millions. If I was making as much money as Kim Kardashian, I would skip and hold hands with my sister all day.
Today is Valentine’s Day, the official day of love. And if you’re anything like me you probably have a few friends who just got engaged and you are already figuring out how you are going to make to six weddings in three months time. Plus, I recently just watched Lord of the Rings. Basically, rings have been on my mind. Specifically how rings impact women when they go on job interviews. It seems silly. Why should a little accessory impact your potential as a candidate for a job? Well, it shouldn’t but as we know an engagement rings represent a lot more than a necklace or pair of earrings. More
Katie Holmes didn’t have an official presentation at New York Fashion Week, but her fashion line Holmes & Yang did schedule a private showing of the latest collection for press. However, the blizzard that hit New York on Friday meant early school closings for New York City kids, which includes little Miss Suri Cruise. I’m sure Holmes has a bevy of people on her staff who could have picked up her daughter, but instead she chose to do it herself and had to skip out on some of the showing to go pick her up. Holmes & Yang’s target customer is the stylish working mom, making this a great move for Katie. The press ate it up. More
This is a post from our friends at Money Crashers about how to enjoy a spa weekend without spending a fortune.
Last spring, my friends and I had a dream of treating ourselves to a weekend away. Unfortunately, we had a very limited budget, a huge group of 10, and did not want to sacrifice on lodging, services, or food. But in spite of these obstacles, we had a fantastic weekend and only spent around $100 per person for top-notch lodging and food.
In between frantic sips of your iced skinny mocha and texts to your mother asking her to please stop editing your LinkedIn page, a Google Alert pops up on your iPhone screen. There’s a new article out on Marissa Mayer, a.k.a. the CEO of Yahoo, a.k.a. your spirit animal. You look at the time and reason that the minutes you spend reading this now can be made up later; looks like “go to the bathroom” is getting pushed from your Google Calendar once again. More
Conversation is inevitable when employees spend 40+ hours a week on the job. This may turn the office into a home away from home, and co-workers into confidants. Unfortunately, this kind of environment is certain to produce chatter that veers … More

Back at work today? Us, too. While it’s great to enjoy a four-day holiday weekend, it makes it all the more brutal to try to gin up momentum for a three-day week sandwiched between two holidays. Scientists call it “social jet lag,” and you can blame it for making you tired, unmotivated, and a few pounds heavier than you were before Christmas.
The Dalkey Archive Press is a small but influential book publisher in Illinois. The company is hiring several new staff members in its London office, and the job listing they wrote for these positions is being called “the worst job description ever” and “the world’s wackiest job listing.” Looking for a low-paying job that forbids you from having any personal or professional commitments outside the office. And don’t even think about attending a wedding in Rio, you hedonist slacker. More

Tory Burch has been in the news a lot lately. Some if it has been about the rapid success of her company and its rumored IPO. But a lot of it has been because of her very personal and public legal battle with her ex-husband, Chris Burch, and his business venture, C.Wonder.
