Sometimes you get invited to a work function, and sometimes there is a big open bar. Now, if you’re a recent college grad, an unlimited supply of vodka soda’s may be a heavenly version of your regular Tuesday night - on crack.
But I urge you: resists all temptation to get bombed. Your superiors are all watching and everyone is judging. And no matter how many free pinots you think you can handle, when you have fondue on your face you won’t notice, and people will talk about it the next day at work. In a bad way.

Up Speak.
All it does is make you sound dumb (good example of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrp_yzIsXkk). Do you want to sound dumb? Or do you want to be a professional power woman?
Other vocal trends I hear by the youths are vocal fry (Kardashian speak) and “I know, right?!” It’s nails on a chalkboard. Stop it. No one will take you seriously. The end.

This is Beyonce. She is performing in a sequined blazer and it’s awesome, because she’s Beyonce. 
As a young professional woman picking out your clothing for work in the morning, before you reach for the sequined shirt, ask yourself 2 questions:
Am I Beyonce?
Is it after 5pm?
If the answer is ‘No’ to both, you do not wear sequins.I venture to say, if the answer is ‘No’ to even one, you do not wear sequins. Unless you work at tanning salon, then wear what you wish.
