    5 Natural Beauty Products That I Can’t Live Without

    5 Natural Beauty Products That I Can’t Live Without One of the requests that we’ve had on the blog is to feature a few more beauty posts. To be honest, I’m not all that good at doing makeup.

    Spring Fashion, Girl Boss Fierce, Look 5

    Spring Fashion, Girl Boss Fierce, Look 5 Not to say that when you’re a girl boss you’ve got to wear pants, but there are times that menswear inspired can add a bit of a boss touch. Spring Fashion Girl Boss Fierce Look 5 doesn’t have as many feminine touches as our previous menswear-inspired look, but it still brings the fierce. The ruffled, stand-up collar with western-style necktie is definitely more simplistic in styling; yet, the contrast of black and white with shades of gray do still make a bold statement.

    Spring Fashion, Girl Boss Fierce, Look 4

    Spring Fashion, Girl Boss Fierce, Look 4 We all know a girl’s best friend — the bling-bling. While INTJ females aren’t the blingiest MBTI type, there’s always room for a bit of embellishment even on the most committed minimalist. Spring fashion, girl boss fierce, look 4 outfit represents a style that I wore often as a business analyst. When you work in I.T., super-feminine styles aren’t appreciated, or appropriate, as the industry is still very much dominated by males. This skirt is a few years old, but it’s a great example of Girl Boss styling when you work in an industry where too much, whether you are male or female, is too…
