Fun Opportunity: Calling All Confident Women!

16 Apr

I was recently told about an opportunity that Dove is sponsoring in conjunction Seventeen, Marie Claire or Cosmopolitan. They are searching for searching for fabulous women to be Dove Deodorant Correspondents for each of the publication titles. This would be a short stint which would include a trip to New York, the chance to meet influential bloggers, a photo shoot, and being actively involved in social media.

To enter for the chance to have this one in a lifetime experience all you have to do is share with Dove how you remain confident throughout life’s ups and downs, while approaching life with a fresh perspective? And what activities and interests help support your confidence and help you express your uniqueness? There is a deadline deadline—but it has just been May 5, 2010. After reading the fine print one of the requirements is that you must be between 18-25 years , phew I made the cut off!

Although I applied and would die for this chance I thought it was a great partnership and too good not to share with our lovely readers who are maybe looking for the perfect summer opportunity during college, well this just might be it!

To find out more information about the program and apply click here. I feel lucky to know and surround myself with fabulous, fresh and full of life women everyday!

Happy Friday! Make the most of your weekend!


Some Links I’m Mad About…

19 Jan

While you’re busy dreaming about the amazingness of your day off yesterday, you might want to check out these links:

1. Untemplater- Incredibly talented bloggers who give you the tools to breakout of your template lifestyle, and live the life you’ve always imagined. (Be sure to download their manifesto).

2. Nicole is better I discovered this blog 2 nights ago and like a good book, I can’t put it down. She’s open, honest, funny, witty and you’re guaranteed to find an experience you connect with. *Major* blog crush.

3. Comedian Nick Swardson– I saw his special last night on comedy central, and I haven’t laughed that hard in awhile. Check out one of my favorite clips here.

4. Waterproof Notepad: If you’re like me, and your best thinking is done in the shower- here is your godsend.

5. Neighborhood guides from Daily Candy- discover restaurants and shops in your very own backyard that you didn’t even know about.

6. Avatar: Call me a nerd, but this is one of the coolest movies I’ve ever seen. The special effects were incredible- and don’t even think about not seeing it in imax. Check out the Trailer here.

7. Help Haitian Earthquake Victims: One of the easiest ways to help is by Texting “HAITI” to “90999″ to donate $10 to the American Red Cross.

8. Courtesy of glassdoor.com check out “Top Oddball Interview Questions” from last year. I have to admit, I can’t stop thinking about “what my best McGuyver moment was.”

9. Oprah’s No Phone Zone Pledge: Each year, nearly 500,000 people are injured and 6,000 are killed  because drivers are talking, texting and e-mailing behind the wheel. Sign the pledge now to make a difference.

10. Great article from CareerAlley on “Job Search Ideas to Fast Track Your Job Search

What We’re Mad About This Week…

21 Nov

front-holiday-cardPoseprints: Our friends started this company a year ago, and all biases aside, if we had to design our dream stationary, this would be it. Using their design tab, you can personalize your stationary with a look-alike pose. They have options for every occasion- christmas cards, birthday invitations, graduation and wedding announcements, recipe cards and more. 

169100_detail-2See Jane Work:  Since most of us spend a good part of our week (okay most of it) at the office, why not invest in some cute and fun office supplies? They have everything from laptop bags, to calendars, notebooks and computer supplies. Check out their sales section for some great deals. 

20something20something bloggers: I know, all you need is one more social networking site to be addicted to. But if you’re like us, and can’t wait to discover new blogs, this is a great community to be a part of.  With over 3,000 members you’re sure to find some new favorite blogs to follow. 

burgerDaily Candy’s ten nibbles and sips under $10: All you sf’ers out there, this is a great list of frugal finds! Eating out can be expensive, and if money’s tight, (especially as you save for xmas presents or if you are like me and moving to a new apartment), it’s always nice to eat out cheaply.

l6092929747_8545The office: In case you didn’t catch last night’s episdode, all we will tell you is.. Toby’s back!!! Yes, the can’t-explain-it hatred between michael and Toby is by far my favorite part about this show, and I was experiencing major withdrawals when he went to Costa Rica. Check out the site to watch it if you missed it, and catch up on the characters blogs. 

grow-21Swirly Career test: Thanks to working-girl for this one (another recent obsession). This quick little career test has been right on for everyone who took it! 

zenhabitszenhabits: This is one of my favorite blogs out there. It covers a variety of topics from motivation, organizing, simplifying, parenting and living frugally.
