Fancy Hair

A woman’s hair can come in all different shapes, sizes and colors and more amazingly, it can change in the blink of an eye. Unfortunately, the timing of this blink can change dramatically depending on who the hair stylist is. Scarlet has surely had her share of hair styles and stylists and their timing and…

I QUIT!!!!!

You have grown increasingly unhappy with your job and you have decided it’s time for you to leave. Most of us deep down inside would like to make a dramatic movie-styled exit…you know the one that involves clearing off your desk with one swoop of your arm and quoting words from the movie, Half Baked…Yes,…

Are you worried about your sole?

Have you been to someone’s house and they asked you to take your shoes off and you went into a mini head panic? You instantly start to sweat all while thinking?…Do my socks match today? Did I do a full hole analysis of my socks? Are my toe nails polished or chipped and unpresentable? You…

Vibration Nation

Perhaps Scarlet is on a phone hating spree this week, but it’s better to be informed. So, about those ringing cell phones in the office… Let’s be clear here. Your co-workers don’t like them and quite frankly, it’s unprofessional. So, maybe the sound of your daughters voice saying “pick up the phone” as your ringer…

The Universal Prayer

Phone Addiction or Just Bad Etiquette

We all have that one friend who is ALWAYS on their phone. If they aren’t on Twitter, it’s Facebook, Blackberry Messenger, GChat or just plain ole’ fashioned text messaging… Now Scarlet is no stranger to “staying connected” and utilizing social networking, but there is a thick line between staying in the know and just being plain rude…

It’s just hello!

Isn’t it interesting when people approach your desk or call your business (or personal) line and just start immediately ranting about something that they need. I am not too sure if it is “interesting” or “appauling” actually. It seems only common and the right thing to do to actually greet someone with a simple, “Hello,…

Who am I?

About a week ago, I was asked to take part in an interview and photo shoot for an upcoming publication. I was very aware that during the interview, I would be asked questions like, what do you do, where do you work, what are your daily job functions, etc. This question made me cringe, because…

Tradition. Rules. Etiquette.

With so many people striving to create their own voice and get noticed, etiquette often goes out the window…but should it? Scarlet says, etiquette should always be considered. Don’t set yourself up for failure before you even begin. Know the do’s and dont’s when entering any situation. –Scarlet
