For Me The Actual Job Requirements Did Not Match The Pay
Again, keywords here: for me, as in, in my professional opinion based on the job’s requirements and market value for the role. Additional team members were added, along with the time, energy, and talent it takes to manage them, with no raise in pay or update on my benefits package. None.
Do I need to say more? I’d worked at major companies and for major brands—proven myself time and time again–for almost two decades, with the career receipts and education to prove it, only to be flagrantly asked to do the extra work for free. And as a Black woman, I found it even more insulting.
Dos And Donts Of Color Correcting
- Do choose the right hues for your skin. Your color corrector will be most effective if you find the right tone.
- Do apply color corrector to your problem areas ONLY.
- Don’t use colors that you don’t need. For example, if you don’t have redness in your skin, then a green color corrector wouldn’t be for you.
- Don’t use too much color corrector, more is not always merrier! Keep in mind that you still need to apply your foundation and concealer. Too much product will make you look caked up.
- Do use a beauty tool to blend your color corrector. I prefer a Beauty Blender but if your fingers work, then knock yourself out. Be sure to tap the area to blend instead of sweeping motions.
- Don’t worry about coverage, that’s what your foundation is for.
- Don’t use it if you don’t have any acne scars, redness, or dark spots.

Examples Of Praise Kink Phrases To Try With Your Partner
If youre new to the term and looking to explore you probably have questions about what phrases to use. It may take a lot of communication and some trial and error to figure out what phrases work best for you and your partner. Ultimately, the best phrases to use varies from person to person and are based on what sex acts you and your partner enjoy, or what parts of their body they like complimented.
To get you started, here are some generic praise kink examples to try out with your partner:
Praise Kink Examples:
There’s that age-old saying that applies to major decisions in your life: “When you know, you know.” And when it comes to my sanity, happiness, or financial future, it’s a saying that has rung true time and time again. Finding the right time to quit a job is never easy, whether you hate the job, love it but have to move on, or feel indifferent about it.
In my case, I knew that quitting a job after just a few weeks would be a far less painful experience than sticking it out. Continuing in the role, for me, would have led to the digging up of old career wounds and a horrible reversion in the progress I’d made both professionally and personally.
In just a short time at the job, I felt like I was in a nightmare remake of a Christmas classic, except this film would be called, Ghosts of Toxic Workplace Past. It was like allowing my ex to take me on a 10-day baecation cruise. Immediately, no.

I Was Given The Responsibility To Lead A Team That Was Already Emotionally Battered From Previous Issues At The Company
During my first few weeks, I knew it would be a smart move to have one-on-ones with the teams I was meant to lead. The company had gone through a series of lay-offs before they’d hired me, and my experience taught me that it’s good to get a gauge of where the remaining survivors’ heads were at so that I could be of service and approach managing them in a strategic way.
What I found from the one-on-one meetings were signs of disenchantment, disinterest in the questions I was asking, or lackluster responses when talking about what they love about working for the company. One person even seemed to be playing a game on his phone while in the meeting. There were a select few who were enthusiastic, welcoming, and forthcoming, but they seemed to have differing versions of their own roles and responsibilities. And the team members who were positive were newer hires, just like me.
The majority of the team seemed like they didn’t even want to be there or as if they’d rather have been talking to someone else, maybe a previous manager who was laid off. As much as I love a challenge, at the time, I just couldn’t stomach the idea of having to fight through and win the team members over. I just didn’t have it in me. I’d be tasked with not only meeting certain company deliverables attached to my role but also appeasing the hardened hearts of disgruntled workers who’d been working at the company for years.
No, thank you.
My Manager Had Totally Different Work Experience And Credentials That I Felt Were Unrelated To Mine
While this particular person was amazingly welcoming and great at what she did, her talents and skills were for a totally different aspect of the business than mine, yet she was serving as my supervisor. I also learned that she’d floated around to various “management” positions in different departments. She’d been taking on multiple jobs and “helping out” in order to onboard me.
In my experience, I’ve known that professionals who do this are often either looking to be promoted elsewhere or are the go-to person who takes on tasks nobody else wants to do. I also knew that this was a recipe for disaster, especially if I would be looking for leadership and/or mentorship support in my role.
It seemed to me that this person was simply biding their time until a better opportunity came along or that the person was doing a favor for someone in order to advance in some other way at the company. Also, if the person judging me on my performance does not have the educational or professional background and/or credentials I have, how can they offer a fair and reasonable review of my work, especially in my role as a manager? This, too, just seemed too problematic.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid Shades
- Green reduces redness
- Yellow corrects dullness
- Peach masks circles/spots
Wende, Urban Decays founder and creative director revealed on her very recently, I dont know about you, but I need and use all of these! Green, peach and pink are my everyday go-to. They are so easy to use and fix the zit on my chin, dark blue circle under one eye, and cheekbones that need some oomph.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid
Color correcting products is all you see when you check out new releases. Last year it was contouring but this year its all about the color correcting, it seems that every makeup company is coming out with their version of color correcting palettes and products.
Color correcting is actually not new in the makeup world. Ive been using a peach corrector for my under eye darkness for a long time now, my first product was the well famous Bobbi Brown corrector which was a good one to have but it was tricky to work with because of the thick consistency.
Urban Decay came out with color correctors that are part of their Naked line and of course since I love their concealer I had to try at least two shades. I picked up the Lavender shade and the Peach shade to test out. My skin concerns are under eye and inner corner darkness and skin sallowness.
If youre not familiar with color correcting here is a little guide:
Green reduces redness
Lavender balances sallow skin and yellowness
Peach masks dark circles and spots
Yellow corrects dullness and lightens dark complexions
Pink brightens dark areas
Orange masks dark circles on dark complexions
Urban Decay came out with five different shades of the Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in: Mint , Yellow , Peach , Lavender and Pink .
The Lavender shade you can use under your eyes to also brighten and on spots where you have a lot of yellow tones and sallowness just to add some illumination to the skin.

From Day One The Job Description Did Not Match My Understanding Of The Duties
Keywords: my understanding. I often overthink almost everything in my life, so I definitely asked quite a few questions during the multiple rounds of interviews for the job. I also re-read the description and asked questions via email so that I could get a few things in writing before the actual offer was made. I thought I knew exactly what I was getting into. As someone with almost 20 years of experience in my field, I figured, hey, a few minor things might be adjusted, but the overall expectations of the job, the people I’ll be leading, and the nature of the work, won’t deviate much—at least not in the first six months.
Immediately upon starting the job, I noticed that not only was I suddenly given an extra team to lead, but the switcheroo was done very casually as if it were normal. I was taken aback and expressed that I was not aware that I’d be taking on managing more people than what was told to me during the interview process. The response: “Oh, it’s just…”
Yeah, anytime someone of authority at work uses the word “just,” it’s a clear dismissal of what it truly takes to do your job, and from my experience, is a key sign that many of your valid concerns related to your job will be dismissed, whether passively or aggressively. And the dismissive responses to your concerns won’t end. You’ll end up a doormat and out of fear and obligation, take on more work than you have the mental capacity to do well.
