Roles Women Play – Career Woman #WomensDay

Women

In my second post on the Roles Women Play, I want to talk about the role of a career woman. I have shared my thoughts about women at work during the A2Z blogging challenge of professional life.

Julie is my boss’s boss’s boss. She is also…

Whisper Ultra Clean Review

Lifestyle Women

I do a lot of reviews on this blog. Beauty products, subscription boxes, books and heck… I have even reviewed a laundry service. I would never buy a lipstick without reading a review and yet when it comes to something like a sanitary pad, I have never bothered looking for a review online. Out of curiosity, I googled Whisper Review and guess what, the first page showed reviews of a 2007 film and an app both of which are called whisper.…
