Tea Party

Let me start by apologizing for the delay in sharing my lovely Tea party. Like everyone, life got a little busy with welcoming a new niece, pool parties and enjoying our stunning weather until lately. So here we are…Throwback Thursday. The only salvageable and decent way to share my party without being so outdated.

Now that I have begged for your forgiveness let’s chat about my adult tea party! In December, I inherited some vintage hats from my Grandma DiSalvo. They just had to be saved from the trash as they were a work of art. Then a few months later, I found Grandma Wester’s hat collection as my in-laws’ house, and I knew it was fate. I was rolling in 27 in the most fashionable way with an adult tea party! Read more

Opera Theatre of St. Louis

Opera Theatre St. Louis

Opera Theatre St. LouisLast week, Brad and I had a fantastic date night courtesy of Opera Theatre of St. Louis. We called this date night new age adulting because we were selected for the free tweet seats! The night was magical and even started with a charming picnic.

As this was my first time at the Opera Theatre of St. Louis, I was not sure what would be in store for us. What type of people attend the opera? What do they wear? Are Brad and I even adult enough to enjoy the opera?

When I am nervous on fitting in, I always go with my favorite LBD, comfy pair of shoes and a statement piece. When we arrived, I was shocked. There was a variety of ages and attire all looking to have a fun night out. Brad and I fit right in. My nerves and notions of an opera faded away, and I was looking forward to learning what attending the Opera Theatre of St. Louis was all about. Read more

Post-Traumatic Growth

Passion and purpose might land your next job!  Regina Hartley, UPS Human Resource Manager, is challenging my peers in the recruitment field to think differently when reading a resume. Check out her TED Talk here. Keep reading for the quick version on how to get noticed!

A resume tells a story. And over the years, I’ve learned something about people whose experiences read like a patchwork quilt that makes me stop and fully consider them before tossing their resumes away. A series of odd jobs may indicate inconsistency, lack of focus, unpredictability. Or it may signal a committed struggle against obstacles. At the very least, the Scrapper deserves an interview.

3 steps for successful networking

3 steps for successful networking

After a few bumpy flights, I made it to Austin, Texas and the Indeed conference. The first few parts of my trip went smashing- packing, catching a plane and being kind to strangers.

Now, it is on to the challenging part, networking with a room full of strangers. I am a huge extrovert, but you heard me right….networking. No matter if you are an introvert or extrovert going into a room of unknowns and strangers is hard. Will I be dressed appropriately? Will there bar for liquid courage? Will I have anything to contribute to small chat? The worry and questions go on and on!

It is entirely normal to have concerns about networking making connections as it is not as easy as handing another preschooler a red crayon. With my 3 simple steps for successful networking though you think it was.
