Today I’m giving a shout-out to all my fellow secretaries, admin assistants and receptionists out there!  That’s right. In case you didn’t know, I am the receptionist for Pür Minerals, and I blog in addition to my daily tasks.This week marks the beginning of the month, and that means it’s time to order office  supplies. Wow! This month’s list was long. It seems like everybody needed something to make their work area more functional and enjoyable. Just like paper clips, pens and rainbow sticky notes can make a desk or cubicle a better place, certain cosmetic must-haves can also make a day at the office a little easier. I should know.

Thursday, September 23, 2010 | COLUMN: Tips & How-Tos

Shutterstock_13902835 I was chatting with one of my girlfriends online recently, and she felt insecure about a cold sore that popped-up on her lip.  “Cold sores are just awful,” she complained. “They hurt, look gross, and I swear that’s all people see when they look at my face.” I’ve never had cold sores, so I decided research these foul, facial foes, hoping to learn their dirty secrets and weaknesses.

Wednesday, September 08, 2010 | COLUMNS: Things We Love, Tips & How-Tos, Uncategorized

My husband and I moved this weekend. All last week I have been packing stuff at night and Shutterstock_906631 hauling it to work, and I drive straight to our new home after quitting time to unload and unpack. It’s been quite a week!

Friday, August 13, 2010 | COLUMNS: Things We Love, Tips & How-Tos

Summer is in full swing, and even though most people here in the ATL are complaining about the heat, I love this season. It is my favorite time of year by far.

Monday, August 02, 2010 | COLUMN: Things We Love

Shutterstock_10143487 Body language experts know that the best way to smoke out a lie is to follow the fibber’s eyes. Avoid direct eye contact and odds are you’ve got something to hide. However, you don’t have to be a detective to tell if someone’s lying about their age. The thinnest place on the skin, the delicate eye area is where the first signs of aging appear. However, with a little prevention and some serious skin fitness, you can shape up your eyes enough to fool even the toughest examination.
