TV weekend update:
On my favorite weekend TV series, Running in Heels
, Samantha left work early on Friday in order to meet up with her boyfriend. Unfortunately, the Marie Claire
yearly beauty product sale fell on that same day which gave fellow interns Talita and Ashley plenty of complain about. The whole question of work over personal life is one many people deal with on a daily basis, and though it's certainly healthy to take that break and go see your beau, it can make you look less than dedicated in your boss' eyes. In her weekly follow up blog on MyStyle.com, Samantha says her boss approved her leaving early and as for it keeping her from getting a job at the magazine in the end, she doesn't care. She says she's not interested in a full-time job because she intends to go back to school when it's over. What? So why take the Running in Heels
internship in the first place? Why deprive someone who would really love a job at Marie Claire
from taking the space? Yes, it's a learning experience, but publishing and fashion are two highly competitive industries and I'd rather have an intern who plans on staying in for the long haul.
Geez, I didn't realize I felt so passionate about it! Better move on to other things like the America's Next Top Model
marathons on Oxygen. This is the only reality show that I can watch over and over again and Oxygen has added little pop-up trivia bubbles to the episodes so it's even more fun the second time around. Visit Oxygen.com for Top Model
Obsessed -- their own little club with interviews, photos, trivia and more.
Plan on parking it in front of the TV all night tonight, there are dozens of new shows on including the premiere of two new shows on ABCFamily and one on TLC. Read on for details.
