Letter from the Editor

Welcome to Little Gold Book!

about me:

I’m a current law student in Los Angeles, with a passion for all things beautiful and creative, thanks to my former event planning career. I love traveling the world, eating all kinds of food, and ending the day with champagne. I also love reading, contract negotiations, and laughing until my abs hurt. This blog is for me, and for you.

As I make my way down the professional path, I’m repeatedly confronted with the difficulties of being a girl in the corporate world. It’s hard to balance pretty and professional. It’s exhausting to stay fit when you’re at a desk ten hours of the day. It’s nearly impossible to keep up with friends when weekends don’t seem to exist because you’re busy catching up on sleep.

BUT I believe there’s nothing more important. It’s important to look good when you walk out the door in the morning, it’s important to feel good about your body and all it can do, it’s important to stay connected to the people you love. Why?  Because "success" without these things isn’t really success at all.  

about the blog:

This blog is dedicated to the girls out there who believe that success means balance. These girls are career girls: attorneys, artists, doctors, entrepreneurs, analysts, editors, designers, and so much more. They love their job, but they love their life outside work just as much. They know that success is a result of hard work, but that it also depends on being polished, professional, happy and healthy. These girls are tired of being told they have to choose…between pretty or smart, between successful or balanced, and between the office or the home. They believe there is a way to have it all, and are drawing the map to their own success story.

This blog is an attempt to answer the question: how does she do it? It’s a guide to being successful in all the ways you want to be. I hope you find my tips & tricks useful, and would love to hear your ideas and feedback.
