Not today. Today is Vikki's bday which means it's officially #InternationalVikkiRossDay (party, bday cake emoji). Keep forgetting your best friend's bday (even with a Facebook notification), disremembering your Mum's age, or muddling your kids' names but... never ever forget 22.10.22 I had the honour to be Vikki for a day, not like the 'Single White … Continue reading I was Vikki Ross for a day
I love my two girls, but I love myself too, and now that they are both at school, my brain is asking me for a third child. Not a baby (I have to clarify before my friend Antonio makes a comment here about me overpopulating the planet). THIRD CHILD is my way to find a … Continue reading Third child
Escribir sin pensar
Siempre he pensado que uno tiene que pensar antes de hablar pero no antes de escribir. Los mejores escritos salen sin filtro, no tienen razón, no tienen 10 revisiones de texto, ni buscan los temas del momento; no les importa alcanzar la fama, convertirse en un Best Seller o quedar olvidados en una mesa de … Continue reading Escribir sin pensar
A beautiful bunch of words from Steve Jobs
Today I found Wordle, a toy for generating “word clouds”. You can paste a bunch of text, enter the URL of any blog or enter a a del.icio.us user name to see their tags. As you can pick fonts, layouts, and color scheme, your cloud is going to look nice. Play and share it! I … Continue reading A beautiful bunch of words from Steve Jobs
Where the hell is Matt? In Manchester
A good friend of mine told me that today, 14th of September, Matt will be dancing in Manchester. If you want to appear on Youtube and show the world your dancing skills, you should join him.

We had to assess the multichannel retailer’s business and present in a ‘consulting style’ our findings and recommendations for improvement/opportunity.

What does Gandhi and an ironing board have in common?
They were both in my assignment for an "eCommerce Essential" class. I had to ask a question online about a product and assess the quality of retailer's response offline and online. Therefore, I wrote a Customer Review Experience; Gandhi's words were in the introduction and the ironing board was the product. "A customer is the … Continue reading What does Gandhi and an ironing board have in common?
How mobile and store are connected
I am attending this module: e-Commerce Essentials. Despite all my capitalists expectations about transactions, payment methods, retailers, ROI, software, etc. I have learned to look around. Ecommerce can not be effective if we don't understand what is happening out there. We have to spend more time researching about the customer, his habits, access to different … Continue reading How mobile and store are connected
UK Music Festivals
I am one of those people that always know about a concert; whether the day when happens or days after when there is nothing I can do. This is me, Martha Tolosa in London. I used to have a friend that knew everything about music in London, Marisol. My friend knew about dj's, concerts, venues, … Continue reading UK Music Festivals
Veux tu aller à Cannes?
The Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival (IAF) is known in an abbreviated and cool way: Cannes. It has been the desired Festival for Creatives. We imagine ourselves winning a precious Golden Lion and walking up the red carpet, surrounded by CEO's from the biggest agencies in the world asking for your name.
