5 Women Entrepreneurs You Should Know

1. Ivanka Trump
Ivanka Trump, Top Women Entrepreneurs
DRESS (I ordered it and love it!!)

Real estate mogul, fashion entrepreneur, business executive, and author, Ivanka Trump is one of my favorite women entrepreneurs.  I have been following her since I was in high school.  I love her book, "The Trump Card", and cannot wait for her book, "Women Who Work".

2. Sara Blakely
Sara Blakely, Top Women Entrepreneurs, Spanx

The youngest self-made female billionaire, Sara Blakely invented Spanx after scoring very poorly on the LSAT twice and not getting accepted into law school.  I love hearing her speak, especially about failure.  Her energy is infectious and I can totally relate to being a bad standardized test-taker!!  

3. Sophia Amorouso
Sophia Amoruso, #Girlboss

Sophia Amoruso is the ultimate #Girlboss.  Founder of Nasty Gal, author of #Girlboss and Nasty Galaxy, her story is so fascinating and inspiring.  She also has an awesome podcast called #Girlboss Radio where she interviews other successful women executives and entrepreneurs.  I highly recommend it!

4. Tory Burch
Tory Burch, Tory Burch Foundation

American businesswoman, fashion designer and philanthropist, Tory Burch has built an amazing brand and philanthropic foundation.  I have several Tory Burch bags, and they are some of my favorite work totes.  I enjoy going to the Tory Burch Foundation website for inspiration and interviews from Tory and other successful women.  Check it out sometime!  

5. Lori Greiner
Lori Greiner, Shark Tank

Inventor, entrepreneur and T.V. personality best known for her role on "Shark Tank", Lori Greiner is someone I have recently began to follow.  She has also been called the "Queen of QVC", and has launched more than 400 products.  She has a book out called "Invent It, Sell It, Bank It!", and I can't wait to read it!

Happy Monday!  I cannot believe that Christmas is this week!!  I love this red J. Crew school boy blazer for work this time of year.  It looks so pretty and festive for the holidays, and is the perfect blazer for office Christmas festivities.  We are having a tacky sweater party and potluck later this week and I have agreed to let my team decorate my atrocious orthopedic boot with LED lights. Haha!  I am still wearing my boot (which is why my feet aren't pictured).  I cannot wait to get this boot off and go back to wearing normal shoes!!

Motivation Monday

Women Who Work, Ivanka Trump, Lawyer Lookbook, #Girlboss
My dad and I at our Town's Christmas parade.  My first parade as an elected official.  

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  

BREAKING NEWS: I am now walking AND driving after over one month on crutches!!!  I am still wearing an extremely atrocious orthopedic boot with obnoxiously loud red trim and a matching bright red air pump (I call it my Rafael boot (from the Ninja Turtles)- it is so ridiculous looking)), but I am tickled to be mobile and independent once again.  My next big goal is to get back to wearing my heels.  I am extremely motivated to make this happen now that I can finally walk.  Also, I am hoping to snap some blog photos in the next week or so- this injury has really set me back!   

Thanks again for all of your kind comments!  I hope this motivates you this week! :-)

The Best Christmas Gift for Only $10!!

Anthropologie Gold Monogram Mug
Limited Edition Mug (only $10 and makes the perfect gift!)

Thanks so much for all of the kind comments and emails asking about my foot.  I broke my toe October 30th.  I started to make significant progress mid-November, but then re-injured my foot.  I sprained the top and bottom part of my foot and tore the ligaments on the bottom.  I am still on crutches, and still can't walk or drive.  Every time I try to take a step, it feels like I am walking on broken glass and fire.  It is absolute torture, and I feel like I am wearing a constant GPS tracker.  With that being said, my friends and family have been incredibly helpful and I am extremely appreciative- I just want my independence back!!  

Needless to say, I have been taking it easy (when possible) and lounging around by the Christmas tree with my favorite gold monogram mug.  How cute is this mug??  I ordered it last year and I am so glad I did since it is a limited edition mug.  It is only $10, and would make the perfect gift for the hostess, a friend or co-worker.  It would also be a cute housewarming gift.  I just ordered one for my cousin.  I cannot believe Christmas is right around the corner!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
