Celebrating The Royals!

Celebrating The Royals!

Tiaras, Cupcakes, Champagne & Jewelry 

No British weather for this party. The sun shone as more than 40 princesses flocked to the Old Town Alexandria jewelry boutique Mystique last Thursday evening for Mystique's first-ever Princess Party and to toast Will and Kate on the eve of their nuptials. The tiaraed guests sipped champagne and tried on rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings adorned with diamonds, sapphires, and more, all befitting royalty.

Mystique owner Elizabeth Mandros, who is celebrating 20 years in business this year (and her birthday as well), was the belle of the ball. "We had such fun," Elizabeth exclaimed, "It was a perfect night." And her guests agreed. Iris Perry, of Montgomery Village, Maryland, "felt like a princess."

In From Hello to Goodbye, published by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Walters provides employee relations tips – from orientation to exit interviews – to ensure every step of the employee relationship runs smoothly and beneficially for both employer and employee.

The Washington Post Pulls a Darwin

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that traditional media struggles to find its place in the digital world. Electronic distribution gives people greater choice, and we consume from the publishers that give us the most value—however each one of us personally defines that value. Advertising revenues have followed eyeballs and, over time, newspapers have lost relevance. Now, The Washington Post has pulled a Darwin maneuver by launching a service called Trove.

While I applaud the move, I wonder if it’s going to net the results they seek. The Washington Post has teamed up with Facebook to aggregate and deliver personalized news based on a consumer’s likes and dislikes. That, in itself, makes me uncomfortable.
