For the perfect desk…

As I was writing the previous post I was making a mental list of things I want to buy for my new desk. There is something to be said for fantastic items that you purchase for your desk at a job. If and when you leave down the road, you take it with you! It sets you apart from the corporate garbage bought at big name retailers and makes people curious – at least like minded women. I hope that some of those exist at the new place of employment! So, without further ado, here are some of the items that will *hopefully* adorn my new desk!

  • A fantastic file holder … 26$


  • Fantastic file folders – / $11.95 for 6


  • A fantastic pen – / $61.60


  • Business card holder – / $29.70


  • Funky canisters to hold *stuff* – / $12.00


  • A fantastic eraser – / $4.00


  • Fabulous picture frame – / $24.00


And every woman needs a fantastic tote but I haven’t found one yet. I’ll blog about it if I find it. Fingers crossed!

See Jane Work


No, I don’t have a coworker named Jane – it’s a fabulous website! I wish I could buy all of the neat stuff that I find on that website! Especially as I’m getting ready to switch jobs, I wish I could buy a little bit of this and a little bit of that from their site. It’s a great site with girlie stuff for working women. From fantastically designed binders and folders to bigger staplers, fantastic journals and note cards, it has it all for the working woman.

If you haven’t checked out the website, make it a point to check it out sooner than later. It’s my fav! Enjoy

One More Week in NonProfit!


One more week to go in the land of nonprofit! I’ve loved the experience. I’ve spent 3 years in nonprofit and have enjoyed the work but not always the pay. I hate to think of myself as a gold digger because I’m going into the big world of FOR profit but the fact of the matter is I like to shop. I do and unfortunately I’ve got to find a way to pay for some of the things I love besides using the credit card. And so … next Tuesday is my last day and Wed. is my first day at my new job in agency life. I’m excited. I know it will come with lots of changes. After-all, I’ll be a supervisor, which should be interesting in itself and managing budgets which should be a great catalyst for humor down the road but I’m going to “put myself out there” like Dr. Phil says and try something different. “Why not?” I think to myself. The worse thing that could happen is that I hate it and then I can always move on to something else. PR is always needed … especially crisis communications. The best thing that could happen? I’ll love it and thrive in it and do splendid! Wishful thinking and prayers!Change – here I come!

New Opportunities

Last week I quit my job. It was a stressful decision but I decided to accept a position with an agency. I’ve never worked for an agency before so the decision was especially tough. I’m not sure about billing hours or making nice with my staff and clients a like but it should be a great experience. I love my current job but I wasn’t being utilized to my full potential. Honestly, I was bored to DEATH. It was nice when I was planning my wedding, but now … not so much. In addition, there just wasn’t enough job stability for me. I’m all about change but not when I’m not prepared!

So, on the 19th, I start a new phase! I’m excited about it but also a bit scared and worried. We’ll see how it goes… Wish me luck!
