The day when… OR Blimey, because my life needs more excitment…

A man in a suit carrying a blue folder under his arm at 11am is a pretty banal sight in Corporate New York. When the man in a suit carrying a blue folder at 11am is not at work but is standing in your living room and is your red-faced DH, you know that yourContinue reading “The day when… OR Blimey, because my life needs more excitment…”

Working Mama: how many is really a crowd?

Last week I was very busy with different non-baby related projects (hence no blogging).  I cannot go into details about these projects for the moment but let’s just say that I have my fingers in too many pies and by the end of the year either scenario could take place: –       I will be ableContinue reading “Working Mama: how many is really a crowd?”

Working mama: to all the Betty Suarez of the world

When I first discovered Betty, I felt like a firecracker on a 4th of July. Finally, I had found someone in the TV world I could perhaps relate to. I always fantasized myself as a Sydney Bristow (from the JJ Abrams’ show, Alias) because she seriously kicked ass, called Victor Garber ‘Dad’ and …, wasContinue reading “Working mama: to all the Betty Suarez of the world”

Lost in transition?

‘Bob: What are you doing? Charlotte: My husband’s a photographer, so he’s here working. I wasn’t doing anything so I came along. Bob: What do you do? Charlotte: I’m not sure yet, actually’. Lost in Translation, Sofia Coppola (2003) I was very excited to attend Kiera’s baby shower because it was taking place in theContinue reading “Lost in transition?”

Mood of the day: true blue

I woke up with a spleen. In fact, I have been waking up with a spleen for the last three days. Another good old shower could not wash away my gloominess so I wikipedia-ed ‘postpartum depression’. I finally self-diagnosed myself as not going through the big D. Note: It is stupid to self-diagnose when itContinue reading “Mood of the day: true blue”

Mood of the day: L’etudiante

I gave in to a very old addiction: enrolling into a class. I am officially a part-time student of NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies. When growing up I was an excellent pupil who turned into a good high school student who turned into an average business student. I only excelled in Philosophy andContinue reading “Mood of the day: L’etudiante”

Coffee with a headhunter: the rules not to break

It is not often than I get work connections through my family – mainly because they still don’t know what I was doing before having kids and more comprehensibly what it is I actually want to do now. My sister’s boyfriend once candidly asked: ‘I am confused…your sister has two Masters in Business and Management,Continue reading “Coffee with a headhunter: the rules not to break”

To Link In or to not Link In?…

Today is the second day of my job search. Considering that my first day of job search was three weeks ago it is becoming slightly pathetic. I had a horrible night since my 3 month old baby L woke up every hour and a half and I basically had to use my breasts as aContinue reading “To Link In or to not Link In?…”
