Weekly Reads – December 26th

Welcome to the Weekly Reads, where I highlight articles that I found on the web and that are focused on career advice, lifestyle, beauty or anything I think would round-up as useful for the young, modern, working woman. So get yourself comfortable, pour a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy this week’s reads!

This week’s reads are coming to you a few days late. The holidays made me lose track of the days and I completely forgot to post!

This past week has been quite short and busy when it comes to work; I only worked Monday and Tuesday and on Wednesday morning I was already on my way to Spain, to spend the holidays there. Back in the beautiful city of Bilbao, the rest of the week has been just amazing – we’ve been surrounded by good food, wine and coffee as well as great company – what else can I wish for?
