Summer officially starts next week and most of you are probably heading to the beach or pool soon. I spent last weekend reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn for my book club. It was so good!!! I am recommending everyone add this book to their summer reading list. In addition to Gone Girl, Well I’ve created a list of books that I think are great beach reads.
What’s on your summer reading list?
Last night I attend a private screening for a new fashion documentary about Bergdorf’s called Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s. The documentary celebrates the evolution of the legendary New York landmark. The documentary features top designers who have worked with the department store throughout the years like Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Fendi. The documentary also features employees who have been influential in the Bergdorf brand like Linda Fargo.
Check out the trailer below and head to a theater near you to see the film.
Today I am back for another installment of my Around the Coffee Table series. During the last post we discussed the millennial worker. Today we are discussing friendships post college. Earlier this week I was talking to my best friend that lives in Texas about making friends in the real world.
She moved to Dallas about two years ago and has struggled at finding true genuine friends in the metropolis city. A lot of the friendships she has made have been through work. Which is where I think a lot people find friendships post college. With constant after work happy hours you are bound to find friendships with co-workers.
But what happens when you leave that workplace or things fall apart with that friend. Then you are left thinking where are all of my friends. Well that’s what has happen to her. I think it has happened to a lot of us twenty-somethings. It has happen to me and that’s why I like to keep work and pleasure separate.
My advice to her was to get involved with community and young professional groups in her area that may have a lot of young people as members. That’s what I did. I’ve found a core group of girlfriends through my church small group and other groups I have been involved in.
If you are a young professional, how have you kept, maintained, and found new friendships post college?
