Have You Ever Been Sexually Harrassed In The Workplace?

Have you ever been harassed, sexually or otherwise in the workplace? did you report it?

I have been but never reported it, I didn't want to be known to my co-workers as the girl who was sexually harassed or worse the girl who allowed herself to be (the latter is sad to say but it's true). I figured, I'm an adult, I can handle this without becoming the main subject to rampant workplace gossip. Although, I did speak to some friends about it and received a few colorful solutions, most of them violent in nature. Just so you know, I didn't act on any of them.

In my opinion, the first thing to do in a situation like this is to approach your offender, he or she might not even be aware of their actions. However, if the offending behavior continues, it's best to involve upper management. In addition, having a witness or solid proof of the harassment will help significantly. Otherwise, it's just your word against your offender's, which poses its own challenges if they outrank you.

Throwback Julia

Julia Roberts has been making us swoon for at least three decades and still captivates us with her eloquent beauty. This pretty woman has had a pretty lengthy and scandalous dating history. She has romanced some of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors like, Kiefer Sutherland, Benjamin Bratt and Liam Neeson, just to name a few. Perhaps it's that megawatt smile of hers? You still have us under your spell, Julia.

What Staph Likes

Butterfly cinemagraph, how pretty!

The wisdom of hands.

How to make homemade ricotta cheese, it's so simple!

A site dedicated to burgers, very "hood" indeed!

How the Brady Bunch lives, not those but these.

Edge up any outfit with this.

That indescribable, homey, euphoric feeling you get when you smell a bouquet of lavender, aah...

Priscilla Ahn - Dream, listen.

“ I was a little girl
alone in my little world
who dreamed of a little home for me.
 I played pretend between the trees,
fed my houseguests bark and leaves,
and laughed in my pretty bed of green.
I had a dream…that I could fly
from the highest tree.
I had a dream.”
 
lyrics from: dream

Retro Glam: 'Pretty Woman'

These gorgeous retro photographs are just perfect to sate my wistful yearning for the lost glamour of the 1930s, where women embraced their femininity and wore dresses that hung to every curve. Also, I'm loving the polka dots. I'm inspired to stock up on a few pieces for the fall season!

A Mother's Work

 Gene Tierney with one of her three children.
 Jackie Kennedy and her daughter, Caroline.
 Elizabeth Taylor and her daughter, Elizabeth Frances.
Mia Farrow and her children.

She may not be a famous Hollywood siren or the First Lady of the most powerful nation in the world, but she holds the most important job a woman can and will ever do, being your mom.

No matter what her status, she is still the only person who will kiss all your boo boo's away, check for monsters beneath your bed, refuse to go to bed until you finish your term paper and cry with you after your crush all but crushes your heart. She believes in you,  helps you, supports you and loves you...even when you fight her every step of the way.

What would we be without mom?

Mommy, thank you for all you do, I love you, always.

Happy Mother's Day!

Iconic Dresses In History

Marilyn Monroe's White Pleated Dress

The image of the buxom Marilyn Monroe standing above the subway grate in the "Seven Year Itch" while her white pleated halter dress flutters in the wind is forever ingrained in most of our minds.
 Princess Diana's Wedding Dress


Talk about a princess moment. The People's Princess wore this multi-layered tulle frock for her wedding to Prince Charles, in 1981. While I find the material too overwhelming, I still gasp when I see it because its such a historic moment. Plus, it was the 80s, the era of, a little too much.
 Jacqueline Kennedy's Pink Chanel Suit

This pink Chanel suit is so powerful that it stood out amidst JFK's assassination. Kennedy refused to remove the blood splattered suit following the murder, stating "I want the bastards to see what they've done to Jack."
Audrey Hepburn's LBD From Breakfast at Tiffany's

Audrey Hepburn (Holly Golightly) singlehandedly propelled the classic LBD into the fashion archives and also carved her place in fashion history.
Dorothy's Gingham Dress

Who could forget Dorothy's (Judy Garland) blue dress from the 1939 adaptation of the "Wizard Of Oz." I think it's charm lies in its sweet, almost virginal disposition. The pigtails, the ribbons in her hair and the ankle socks only add to its appeal.

Vintage Ralph Lauren Ads From The 80s

The Ralph Lauren brand truly encapsulates the classic American lifestyle. I've always admired how Lauren is able to portray blue blood aesthetics without it appearing haughty. It takes a creative mind to achieve such  balance. Furthermore, he always tell a story with his collections which is most evident in the 80s ads below. Lauren incorporates the Annie Hall and Navajo-inspired look flawlessly, don't you agree my darlings?
