Is it just me or does everyone get a little slow moving (along with super bummed!) once summer ends? I know fall’s one of the best seasons for the beach (water is so warm in September!), but weekends at your favorite beach town are basically over and it’s harder and harder to justify a nightly ice cream cone. How are we supposed to be excited about that and be ready to jump right back into the routine of schoolwork and 5-day work weeks (or 7 if you’re a girl boss!). In order to go right from summer mode to slay mode, check out these must-haves to unleash the girl boss in you this off-season!

No matter how many times you e-mail, insta DM, snap, or tweet your favorite people, there’s still nothing like receiving a hand written note in the mail. As a girl boss looking to make a serious impression and have her name be remembered, it is critical to get back into the habit of writing letters. After a meeting, a thank you note to a potential customer, when sending press sample, letter writing is perfect for so many occasions! Have a personalized (and pink) set on hand and make it part of your routine. Don’t forget pink stamps!

In a world where you can do literally everything from your phone, taking meeting notes should not be one of those things. I get it—it’s super easy and then there’s no chance of losing information but from the other person’s perspective, it’s slightly rude. Think about it–there’s no way for anyone to know you’re taking notes or writing out your grocery list. Instead, buy a small notebook and pen that can fit in any of your purses and keep it on you for surprise meetings. We love the simplicity of ban.do’s pink 5” x 8” notebook. It’s only $10 and features an elastic band to keep any loose papers safe too!
