Spotlight-hogging during interviews can convey the message that you’re self-centered and are not considerate of the interviewer and the other people who may be with you during the interview.
Webinars have quickly become a part of our quarantine life. It’s similar to workshops and talks, minus the physical interaction and it’s obviously much shorter. Some of you may have thought of doing it or may have been invited to do it and you’re thinking: How the heck do I start? Where do I look? How do I conduct myself?” Watch this video and learn.
So you’re done with decluttering and sorting out your clothes. Is shopping the next step!?!?! HOLD YOUR HORSES! Before going shopping, it’s important to assess how much of your current, sorted out wardrobe can still serve your needs. And then you list down what things you lack, based on your current lifestyle, activities and season in life. ENJOY THE VID!
Handling interviews, giving statements and public speaking are all a part of a public figure’s life. Whether one is a celebrity, a politician, a government official or a company executive, knowing how to communicate properly and appropriately is a key skill.
Why have apologies been a huge thing, these past few weeks? As humans, we’re prone to err. But that doesn’t mean we should make it an excuse every single time. We’ve also been given our common sense so we can think things through before we say or even do some things.
Do you feel busier or more involved than other people in your church community? Watch out! Be careful not to use yourself as a barometer to measure others.
Is the husband exempt from engaging in it because he’s supposed to be providing? Is the wife expected to do it, just because it’s her turf?
When I started meeting my designer for my wedding gown, I didn’t fuss so much about wedding shoes. I know it had to flow with my gown’s overall look but it also had to be comfy. I’m no stranger to walking and standing for several hours and I know it can be very excruciating if the footwear is tortuous.
Earlier in my working life, I did go through a phase of buying and collecting beautiful shoes that were at least 4 inches because I love how high heels can make your legs and feet look sexier. While I still am particular about quality, style and durability, I have entered that life stage of embracing low-heeled shoes and tasteful flats because I’ve learned to prioritize my body alignment, foot and back health.. Walking and standing in high heels can be learned; you can train your body and muscles to get used to them, but one unfortunate miscalculated movement and you can trip, fall and injure yourself. I didn’t want that happening on my wedding day.
Looking for the right wedding shoes wasn’t such a long process for me because I knew what I was looking for: comfortable, tasteful and something that would go well with my gown. Also, since my gown was floor-length and had a train, I didn’t see the point of wearing heavily-decorated shoes. Check out the video below and I hope this helps ease the whole pressure of having to splurge on expensive wedding shoes.
Hey everyone! Here’s another tip on what hubby and I scrimped on for our wedding: Printed wedding invites. Some couples may feel that this is something you can’t skip; again your wedding, your rules. I’m just happy that Dave and I agreed that we can do e-invites and allot the wedding budget elsewhere. It was easier for us to monitor our guestlist and it was also more convenient for our guests to confirm or decline.
After making a list of our essentials and nice-to-haves, it was easier for us to assess which ones we’d allot more money for in our budget. When you’re planning your wedding, it’s important to remember that:
1) advice from experienced wedding professionals is valuable but be discerning as well. There are some that I have worked with who put the welfare of their clients and fellow suppliers above all, and then there are those who have a different agenda.
2) seeking inspiration is good but ultimately, it’s still YOUR WEDDING, so your rules and preferences will take precedence. Don’t allow popular trends and peer/family pressure to dictate how you’re supposed to wed.
Hope this video helps you out. By the way, I didn’t discuss wedding coordination just yet. That’s coming up in another video.
