"Did you get a hair cut?" "No, I got them all cut."

You would like to come over to do my hair every morning?  And you would like for me to greet you every morning with coffee and best biscotti in NYC? Okay, see you tomorrow morning at 6:10am.

For the remainder of this week, how about these styles?

Oh, and now you want to do my makeup when you're done with my hair? How wonderful! You're too kind. These are the colors I want to try this season. What do you think?

Making a statement without words.

"The talented Liu Bolin says his art is a protest against the actions of the Government, who shut down his art studio in 2005 and persecutes artists. It’s about not fitting into modern society."

Personalization vs. Customization

There's so much to be said about great customer service. I'm always awed by companies that go above and beyond to deliver their goods and services. Why? It's just not that common. 

I'm used to customization, it only takes a miniute to change my preference. I ask to swap out blue cheese for chickpeas in my salad, I make my LinkedIn profile private, and I set my camera resolution to 1600x1200.

Personalization, however has an interactive component.  Messages/content are uniquely communicated to individuals. My Gilt homepage is set to highlight my purchase/website visit history, my doorman greets me by my name, and my work desk is adorned with photos of my friends and family. 

After searching high and low, my boyfriend finally found a workbag that met his criteria: unique and durable. The cherry on top? The personalized note.

tug at your heartstrings

I came here tonight to apologize to the blogosphere for my long absence. But I have to interrupt my own apology with this great commercial. Maybe it's my love for Ingrid Michaelson or maybe it's simply that I have the best dad ever. Regardless, take a moment to watch this commercial.  I promise I'll update more frequently.

My life on a list.

week 1: Chicago to visit friends and family.
week 2: SPAIN.
week 3: Reorganizing and purging my closet to make room for business clothes.
week 4: End of early retirement. First day of work.   

It has been four years since I've had a cubicle. Pinning of photos, whispering quietely on the phone so not to disturb cubicle-neighbors, storing treats in drawers, lining of shoes under the desk WILL all occur. I'm excited to be working for a company I've had my heart set on, but most importantly, I'll be with two of my best friends. This entry goes out to my most supportive, understanding and funny friends, PV and LL. These two ladies are beautiful inside and out, and I would truly be lost without them.
