Today’s Menu: Designer Party Dresses, Originality and a very important job search and interview tip!

Be (B)eautiful: There is nothing I love more than a dress. It is quite possibly my favorite item of clothing to wear because it’s just one piece! Trying to pair an outfit together can sometimes lead to a major headache for me. I always want my outfit to be perfect, especially on special occasions.  So with the holidays rapidly approaching I have been browsing for some super fab party dresses. These are a few that had me drooling at the mouth. Be (A)uthentic: Food for thought: “You’ve gotta be original, because if you’re like someone else, what do they need you for?” ~Bernadette Peters Be (D)etermined: Cater your resume to the job description! I can’t stress this point enough. It’s imperative that you cater your resume to each position you apply for. Yes, it takes more time than sending the same resume to 100’s of jobs, but you’re far better off applying to a fraction of those jobs with a resume specifically written for each job. Put yourself in the interviewer’s shoes. Their job is …

How to: Keep your thoughts positive, ask questions and make sure you sing at the top of your lungs!

Be (B)eautiful: I absolutely love blasting my favorite song of the moment, singing at the top of my lungs and not caring about what anyone thinks. Its my way of releasing any stress I may have bottled up inside. It also helps to  put me  in an automatic good mood. 🙂 Be (A)uthentic: “Our thoughts create our reality; where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go”  by Peter McWilliams. This quote is oh so true. Its important to keep positive thoughts in and kick negative ones to the gutter! Be (D)etermined: A good question to ask on an interview is “Why is the position currently available?” Your intentions in asking this question is to get insight as to whether this will be a good job for you. The interviewer might tell you that the previous person wasn’t comfortable cold calling and being rejected. If this is the case for you as well then it can help you decide whether or not to accept the position if/when it’s offered to you.  They …

“Who you are speaks so loudly I can’t hear what you’re saying.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Be (B)eautiful: One of the best things you can do when someone is feeling down is to get them to S M I L E. A genuine smile releases endorphins that make you feel good. Be (A)uthentic: Being a big talker is such a turn off. No one likes to hear some one go on and on about what they can do, how great they are, what they have accomplished, who they know etc. Talk less and prove more. Let your actions do all the talking for you. Be (D)etermined:  If you work in a very corporate setting where business attire is a must then I highly recommend you dropping some extra bucks on 1.) a really good suit and 2.) quality button ups and slacks. There is nothing tackier than cheap business clothes. Too tight blazers, flimsy button ups and polyester slacks are a no- go.  Plus a nice suit will last you for anytime you may need to interview or dress up for events and important meetings. It’s a smart investment.

“I’m tough, ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay.” ~Madonna

Be (B)eautiful: Keep your beautiful face hydrated this summer with Caudalie Grape Water Toner. I highly recommend!! Be (A)uthentic: As a B.A.D girl who keeps it real all the time it can lead to some sticky situations. You need to learn to filter your thoughts before they come out of your mouth. In other words- think before you talk. No one likes a rude bitch so it may be best to keep your comments to yourself every once in a while. Be (D)etermined: Don’t ever tell the person who is calling you about a job opportunity that you applied to so many jobs you forgot what the position they are calling about is for. You should not be applying for jobs that you don’t qualify for anyways. Seriously, just go along with what they are saying, pick up on context clues and use your brain!

“A life without love is like a year without summer.”~ Swedish Proverb

Be (B)eautiful: It is the first day of summer and the B.A.D girls are ready to turn up the HEAT! So lets make it a hott summer girls! This dress is guaranteed to raise the temperature a few degrees in any room you enter. Be (A)uthentic: Be secure with the woman that you are. Can you look at another female and without hesitation compliment her or say that she is pretty or hott? Only a hater will say something stupid like her hair looks bad in a pony tail or I don’t like that dress. A BAD girl will give props when props are due and she will acknowledge a pretty girl and not roll her eyes at her, unless the bitch deserves it! 😉 Be (D)etermined: Get the job! When leaving a voice mail with a prospective employer or anyone of importance for that matter make sure you speak loud and clear. You don’t need to yell, but please make sure you aren’t mumbling. I cant tell you how many voice mails I have …

“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.” ~Author Unknown

Be (B)eautiful: Do you know a young girl who could use some guidance? Perhaps a little sister, cousin, niece, -why not help her overcome an obstacle she may be facing. Whether it be she is too shy, she wants to get in shape, she has trouble talking to boys, wants to audition or try out for a team, she lacks confidence or esteem. Help her to feel good about herself the way you do.  Take her out for lunch and chat- get to know her and understand why she feels the way she does. Then share a similar story about yourself. This will allow her to connect with you and see that you really do understand.  You want to sound like her friend and not an older adult trying to change her. Be (A)uthentic: We have all been guilty of feeling that we just aren’t good enough for something. As a BAD girl this should be a foreign concept for you now. If you want to achieve something, you aren’t afraid to fail in the process. You …

“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.”~Nora Roberts

Be (B)eautiful: A great beauty tip I learned from my mom is to use orange peels on our skin! So instead of throwing them out after you finish eating one for lunch, take the peels and use them on your skin. If you take the peel and squeeze it (the orange side) you will see that a liquid seeps out. This is great for your skin! I also found a  recipe for an at home orange peel face mask. Let me know how it works for you! Be (A)uthentic: Confidence is a MUST.  Men find confidence to be extremely sexy, the only men who don’t are those with their own personal issues. These men want a partner who is weaker than they are so that they can control them.  BAD girls want a man who is turned on by their confidence and not intimidated by it.  Kiss those insecure losers goodbye! Actually, I take that kiss back,  a hug may suffice. 😉 Be (D)etermined:There is no better feeling than going after what you want and …
