We've outlined the new code of conduct to make your beauty routine work for you come Monday morning.
Leap from cubicle warrior to corner-suite exec with can't-lose looks.
In or out of the office, makeup looks better on healthy, hydrated skin. "In unflattering work light, you can see everything, so start with a good moisturizer for a smooth surface under makeup," says makeup artist Tina Turnbow. "I also de-puff each morning with an eye gel - store it in the fridge so it's extra cooling." On days you down a supersize latte, "I love peppermint lip balm - it moisturizes, tingles, and helps with fresh breath when you're talking to people up close." Just don't skimp on the final review: "Before you head out the door, take a mirror into natural light to make sure everything is properly blended." You want eyes on the bottom line, not your jawline.

1. WE OFFER FREEBIES
Branches often have complimentary or discounted admission passes to local museums, science centers and zoos. And most libraries will also provide free Wi-Fi and access to foreign language databases, car-repair manuals and paid subscription sites, like Ancestry.com.

2. E-BOOKS HAVE NO FINES
If returning books on time is tough for you, try borrowing an e-book. When the library's checkout period ends, you simply lose access to the file-there's nothing to bring back, so there are never any fines! Check one out at the library's website. Most libraries also offer e-reader tech support, and some even lend out devices.

Fat paychecks and fancy perks don't equal contentment. You need something deeper. Agree with any of these statements and it's likely your job falls short of fulfilling.
Your company isn't inspiring. If you wish your company had a purpose a bit more noble than padding the owner's bank account, spearhead a community project, such as a book drive, suggests Nicole Williams, career expert at LinkedIn and author of Girl on Top. "It's great PR for the company, brings the team together and makes everyone feel good about their work."

- Jessica Ferri | Work + Money | Mon, Jan 14, 2013 1:46 PM EST | CommentsThe Kardashian sisters' makeup line, Khroma, has been slapped with a copyright infringement lawsuit and it's not the first time the family has been accused of stealing someone else's ideas.
An image from Khroma Beauty's European website.
Lee Tillett, a makeup artist from Florida, has officially filed suit against the Kardashians in Los Angeles superior court. She is suing for $10 million dollars in damages, claiming the Kardashians stole the name of her makeup line, Kroma, which was founded in 2004, and simply added an "h."
Apparently the Kardashians couldn't resist beginning the business's name with the letter "k." All five sisters and mom Kris have names beginning with the letter K. Their fashion label is called the Kardashian Kollection for Sears and their line for OPI nail polish is called Kardashian Kolor.
9 reasons why the Kardashians should stay out of fashion
"I developed the Kroma line myself, built my business through my own hard work, and took the legal steps necessary to protect it," Tillett said in an interview ...Read More »
- Sun, Jan 13, 2013 11:46 PM EST | CommentsWe are SO happy "Girls" is back on HBO-we're endlessly entertained by the hilarious banter, the realistic storylines, and, of course, the great clothes. After each episode we'll be highlighting one outfit we loved. This week our gaze is fixated on Hannah's best friend Marnie. No matter how much drama she's facing, when Marnie walks out the door she always looks confident and like she has life all figured out. We really admire that! She embraces vibrant colors, and her sophisticated sheath dresses are perfect for the office, cocktails with friends, or a book launch (though they are definitely out of place at a Bushwick loft party).

The job listing for a line cook at FARMBloomington had 44 detailed requirements, including showing up early, having a good attitude, and never complaining. But it also asked that applicants "don't get defensive or act like you already know everything," "admit when you're wrong, but don't point it out when others are wrong — especially the chef," "anticipate what the chef needs next," "cook your dishes exactly as the chef taught you, the same every time," and only suggest changes "in private or phrase it so it seems like it was the chef's idea."

Try these five easy ways to support your local branch.
Public libraries are an invaluable resource, but with shrinking budgets and closures they need you more than ever. Photo by GettyImages.
1. Ask for a card-and then use it.
A large number of active cardholders helps a library prove its worth to the community and justify its funding. Encourage your kids, friends and neighbors to get cards too.
2. Donate your change.
The coins you drop into the collection jars at the desk add up (to the tune of thousands per year at some locations)! So dig out your loose change before going inside and leave a few dimes when you check out a book.

3. Supply a subscription.
Share a periodical you love with your whole town by offering to pay for a subscription ($10 to $30 a year). If you can't decide on a title, ask your librarian or check the library's website for a subscription wish list.
4. Support sales.
Many libraries organize sales of used donated books, DVDs a...Read More »
- Babble.com | Work + Money | Mon, May 6, 2013 5:41 PM EDT | CommentsThe new iPhone 5 reached 5 million in sales in its first weekend, and shattered existing records for the fastest-selling phone ever. As well as providing a much-needed boost to the overall economy, those sales will also meant a sudden surplus of second-hand phones, as people discarded their existing handsets and upgrade to Apple's shiny new device.
If you are one of those that have bought - or are thinking of buying - an iPhone 5, then one of the issues you face is what to do with your old phone. Surely there is something more useful you can do with it other than consign it to the kitchen drawer to gather digital dust alongside all its predecessors?
Thankfully, there are lots of alternative things you can do with a second-hand phone. Here are a few suggestions:
1. Pass it on
If you currently have one of the previous iPhones or another serviceable smartphone, then passing it along to a family member or friend can be a nice gesture. Giving your no-longer-needed iPhone 4S to your t...Read More »

You're not the type to take the lead; you'd rather hang back and watch others forge a path. But instead of picking up what they leave in their wake, it's time to start figuring out for yourself where you want to go. There is plenty of low-hanging fruit that you could pluck if you go your own way.
