I’ve been getting lots of people asking me for book recommendations and I have been sending them the list I made last year (find it here). But since I wrote this, I’ve read a lot of good books so I thought it was time for an update – especially as we’re all looking for something to do now we can’t go to the pub. Books … Continue reading Coronavirus Quarantine Reading List

Brand collaborations are not a new thing, but in the last 3 years they have been increasingly utilised by big names to drive organic growth across both existing and new brands, in the face of slumps in consumer spending and reliance on sales. In fact, Google found that fashion collaborations were ranking higher than their solo counterparts in search. Whether brands are seeking audience volume … Continue reading Brand X Brand: the rise of the collab.
After the delight of the villa, I was a little sad about leaving it to go to a hostel next. Really I had nothing to worry about because the hostel was amazing too. We stayed at the Puri Garden Hotel, and shared twin rooms. It was pouring rain when we arrived so we sheltered while we checked in and watched the skies open. The hostel … Continue reading Bali – Ubud
This post is really over due. I went to Bali in November 2017. I know. I have no excuses. We started our trip in Canggu, arriving late to the most delightful AirBnb – pool flamingo and all. It had an open plan living and dining area that made you feel both inside and outside at the same time; perfect for Bali luxury living. The bedrooms … Continue reading Bali – Canggu
I get asked a lot about which city has been my preference to live in, what the best part was, what the worst part was. In reality I have loved them all, and the friends and memories I have from each city are different but equally cherished (lol lame). But the best thing I got, came from living abroad in general because it teaches you … Continue reading What you learn when you live abroad.
Typically I like to read a lot – for example, I would normally get through 3 – 4 decent size books on a two week holiday. My 2018 new years resolution was to read 52 books this year, and boy am I stubborn; I refused to fail. Mostly rewarding, but at times a – s t r u g g l e – . I … Continue reading I read 52 books in a year: here are my recommendations.
You know when you come across someone and you are just in awe of how that person could exist? That’s what happened when I came across Jessica Pointing. Physics and computer science student at Harvard (prior MIT). Internships at Google (software engineering), Goldman Sachs (investment banking), Morgan Stanley (strategist). Incoming PHD candidate at Stanford in Quantum Computing. One of those things alone would be incredibly … Continue reading #WCW – Jessica Pointing
Amazon just announced their $1 billion acquisition of PillPack, an online pharmacy drug dispenser. A company who set out to sell books now touch every part of our lives: from fashion, to food, to healthcare. Cleanly designed, easy to understand, simple. It’s an acquisition that makes sense. Amazon has spent the last 20 years perfecting the direct to customer model, refining it until you can … Continue reading Amazon & PillPack: another step towards Prime domination.
You can’t have a day in the office without hearing someone talk about it; ‘Did you watch Love Island last night? Oh my god!’. I must confess that I don’t actually watch it, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been touched by the obsession that’s swept not only my home country, but my current country of residence too. Love Island is by no means the … Continue reading How the reality TV model is driving real business
