The unfiltered reality of social media

Can you imagine living through this pandemic without technology? Not being able to socialise face-to-face OR remotely? Happy we’re coming out of it and even happier that so many people used lockdown time to share their inspirational experiences across the different social media platforms. However, the unfiltered reality of what we see in social media looks much more like every day’s reality than the ethereal perfection it tries to convey.

5 tips on how to dress for the face2face post-lockdown

The long-awaited easing of lockdown restrictions is finally happening. For the first time it feels we have a way out of lockdown(s) and we’re soon meeting face2face again.

Lockdown Anniversary

Yesterday marked the anniversary of the first Covid-19 lockdown in the UK. One year of what feels like “life on hold”. Yet, has life really been on hold? Although it may not feel that way, the reality is that life is moving on. Every single day. In an unconventional way, but it is moving on. We are simply too distracted adapting to this new way of life to truly appreciate how much we’ve lived and achieved.

So, in this week’s blog let me take you through some of my learnings and key events from the past year. Continue reading Lockdown Anniversary

Why in the age of globalisation, when we can have anything at any time would I opt for buying seasonal or local? Why would I go as far as opening a local business? And take part in the Made in UK Day? Simply put: that’s how I was raised! Continue reading Why do I do it?
