15th Edition

Hi, Woman on Fire!

Can you believe it’s already October? We’ve been busy rounding up our favorite cozy sweaters, pumpkin-flavored coffee, and fall-scented candles (even if the temperature is still hovering in the low 70’s).  Either way, fall is here and we are ready to celebrate! Hope you’re starting to enjoy the signs of autumn, wherever you might be, and with that let’s get to the links!

Best Take on Work-Life Balance– You might remember when Debbie spoke about the topic of work-life balance here, and we thought this article from Mashable was the perfect followup.

Best ‘You Go, Girl’- Mayor Bloomberg is looking to empower the girls of New York City with the “I’m a Girl Project.” We think there’s nothing more powerful than a girl who feels good about herself, so two thumbs up for Bloomberg. Read more about the campaign here.

Best SNL Skit- Speaking of girls…did you happen to catch Tina Fey’s guest appearance on Saturday Night Live last weekend? Just in case you missed it, we’ve included our favorite skit below.

Best iPhone Gadget- Have you ever grabbed just your ID, credit card, and phone in a mad dash to exit the house? Now you never have to worry about losing any of the three above, because Eyn Products has made it possible to carry them all at once. This new iPhone case is our new favorite all-in-one carrier that conceals your cards and ID while still protecting your phone.

Best Quote- This made us laugh and we thought it might make you smile too! However, we might need more than just a day. Try 2 or 3 🙂


Best Roasted Side- We eat roasted Brussels sprouts around here like it’s our job, so imagine how excited we were to find this recipe for Honey Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts from Dashing Dish. Don’t worry, we’ve already taste tested the recipe for you twice.

Best Happy Feet- Not thrilled about walking around your Yoga/Pilates studio barefoot? Try Toezies! They cover your feet while providing a great grip. These would be a great gift to give to your favorite yogi 🙂
