"Broken Engagements & Returning the Ring"  
Hugh Hefner's broken engagement came as a great surprise to many, but not as big of a surprise as it was to the quintessential "Playboy" himself who learned just days before he was scheduled to walk down the aisle for the third time that his young fiancÚ, Crystal Harris, had a sudden change of heart.  Our latest installment for wedding website, Weddzilla, offers expert etiquette advice for how to put forth our best selves after a broken engagement.

"Business Cards - Still Useful After All These Years"

 business card

Nowadays, it seems that the passing out of traditional business cards has gone the way of the land line telephone and handwritten thank you notes. Cards that once contained a street address, phone number and fax now display an email address and Twitter handle. Rather than shake someone's hand and exchange a paper business card, acquaintances are using smartphone applications or quick emails to exchange contact information.  Here are our top tips for purpose, presentation and storing.

Table Setting



Today is NATIONAL HANDSHAKE DAY, a day dedicated to the history and celebration of one of the most common greetings shared between two people.  The handshake actually emerged from a time when men patted one another on the wrist to ensure no one was concealing any weapons.  Over time the handshake has evolved into the most universal gesture for greeting both business associates and casual acquaintances.   Earlier this week, we were thrilled to share our expert handshaking advice with AOL's JOB site in an article entitled, "SHAKE UP YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING AHEAD." 


This month, we're also pleased to bring you our MANNERS MONDAY feature on BUSINESS CARD ETIQUETTE, as well as our latest WEDDZILLA installment on "BROKEN ENGAGEMENTS & THE RING".
