Love it when brilliant ideas are turned into reality. This mini series (My Life in Sourdough) explores cooking and dating in New York City. Job well done to Marie and the team! Here’s a little teaser of the show:
Always keen to see organisations encouraging girls to get involved with positive change and hands-on planning. An inspiring collaboration between the Nike Foundation, NoVo Foundation, United Nations Foundation and the Coalition for Adolescent Girls, The Girl Effect aims to unite grassroots girl organisations across the world. The initiative encourages businesses and leaders to incorporate girls’ efforts and ideas right from the start of new projects. Read more about girl-centred design here.
I’m a fan of the Forbes leadership articles. “Entrepreneurship is no longer just a business term anymore; it’s a way of life. You don’t need to be an entrepreneur to be entrepreneurial.” Love this advice! Good to be reminded of some helpful steps towards chasing dreams and following through with ideas. This is a good article, too.
I’m always on the lookout for new foodie magazines to add to my collection, so was pleased to flip through Feast: A Dinner Journal, a new quarterly food magazine that focuses on cooking with seasonal produce. Full of lovely photos and recipes, the magazine is Irish chef and food writer Donal Skehan‘s latest culinary project. Love the photos of the gorgeous pottery and soup bowls. You can order a printed copy here, or flip through online.
Nothing more annoying than walking out the door and realising that you’ve severely misjudged your outfit choice (strappy sandals just as it starts to bucket with rain, oversized knit as the temperature starts to soar). Stress less! This app might just be the think to solve our weather-related style conundrums. Pose sends you a daily update with the forecast of your location, and outfits and style tips, no matter the weather. Wish the weather forecast element of the app was available for European postcodes! And these tips are good if your current outfits are starting to feel a little repetitive.
Serious bookshelf envy after seeing these photos of Berlin based Uli Mayer-Johanssen’s home. There are a whole lot of inspiring articles (and photos of gorgeous homes and workspaces) on the Freunden von Freunden site.
If you don’t have time to read the classics, then perhaps the next best thing is adorning your walls with the text of great books? From ‘James and the Giant Peach’ and ‘The Wind in the Willows’, to ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and ‘Jane Eyre’, London-based artist Carl Pappenheim creates wall posters using the text of entire novels for his Spineless Classics project.
Anyone is Paris for this? Will be prepping for my trip to the US so probably won’t have time to check out the Paris Hip Hop festival, but if I could, I’d love to go to some of the ateliers. And this gig.
