Last Thursday I finished a program called CREATIVE COMEBACK 2020. An initiative to get more people back into the creative industry. Yes, back, because once upon a time we were all in an ad agency and for X or Y reason we stopped. There are gaps in people's careers and for some, they don't look … Continue reading #tbt to the best Thursday

Uh oh...what is this? A woman revealing her age? Yes, proudly. This is a tribute to my 30s. Thirties you were amazing, even though you started like a Netflix horror series trailer. Are you ready for the plot? A week before my 30th birthday, I was made redundant. Not a good start right? I was … Continue reading Hello 1979
"Uber, the world's largest taxi company owns no vehicles. Facebook the world’s most popular media owner creates no content. Alibaba, the most valuable retailer has no inventory. Airbnb the world's largest accommodation provider owns no real estate. Something interesting is happening." Tom Goodwin in TechCrunch, March 2015.
Whaaaaat?!!! Yes, I'm one of those annoying people adding lots of vowels and exclamations marks at the end of the words to add some emotion to it.

I got to Wieden+Kennedy's London office and we headed downstairs. I … Continue reading Shut up Imposter!

It seems like we are all suffering from phone addiction or "Nomophobia", an abbreviation for "no-mobile-phone phobia" - a term proposed during a UK study evaluating anxieties suffered by mobile phone users when they "lose their mobile phone, … Continue reading Phones are not bad
After publishing my previous post, I kept thinking... telling people not to read is not a good message, especially for myself. Life is a contradiction, so here is my new post about a very inspiring book: LEAN IN by Sheryl Sandberg -Chief Operating Officer of Facebook. A good friend gave it to me on one … Continue reading Must read to write
I've been trying to finish 3 books in order to write something about them. As you can see by my title: I failed. I keep leaving the books in different parts of the house to give them a fair chance. Downstairs is the book about love and funny stories. When I'm upstairs I read random … Continue reading No need to read to write
