I am not a beauty blogger but I do put some attention into my appearance, mostly for myself and partly to project a professional and high-standard image at work. At the same time, I refuse to spend hours getting ready in the morning : sleep and time with my family is much more important and so is getting to work early. Over the past 4 years, I have become quite efficient in my morning routine so I thought I would share my main tips with you. No rocket science, simply tips for regular working mums who just want to look a tiny bit good without spending 1 hour getting ready.Read More »

I want to write this post for 2 reasons. The first one is that I hope that it may provide some support and ideas to some readers who might experience a professional setback. The other reason is to keep a record for myself, as I know professional challenges don’t happen just once in a career, and it is helpful to develop one’s own way to tackle them.Read More »

Reblogging this article to give inspiration to help my readers be more organized in 2019 (good resolutions for many of you I am sure)
About a month ago (see review of April 2018), one of my friend showed me her bullet journal. I had heard of them and had seen a few ads on Facebook but I had never seen one in real life. She told me that she started hers because she was always doing 100 things at the same time and was doing a bad job of keeping track, thus becoming notoriously unreliable.
That sounded just like me ! So I thought I’d give it a go and try it out for at least a whole month. Here is my experience after 30 days of “bullet journaling” !

1 year ago today, I was getting ready to come back to work after having my second daughter Peanut. 3 months before, I had finished work 3 days before my due date, I had put everything in order for projects to continue smoothly without me and I felt very confident. After all, I had done it before and it had gone smoothly. Boy, I was in for a rough ride ! Read More »

Everyone has lapses of motivation in their career. It can last a day or several months, but in any case, it is always annoying and can make you feel guilty.

Sometimes, it can be linked to a more profound need for “more meaning” in one’s work, maybe triggered by the emotional transformation that parenthood can bring, rendering routine assignments more menial.Read More »
