Nearly finished the book that every women on Instagram is reading too. Its good, honest and makes me laugh out loud.
You are what you wear // “we are more conscious than ever that our clothes are vehicles of self-expression. Even if it turns out that lots of other people express themselves in exactly the same way.”
I BLAME THE INTERNET // “Do you know what used to be considered cool, before fashion blogging and influencers and H&M and Instagram followers and Vlogging your shopping haul, before a curated lifestyle and a personal brand and filters and selfies and your entire self being defined by what you can buy and what you choose to buy? Before we started curating considered, eclectic mixes of tasteful minimal accessories and vintage mid-century modern pieces on Pinterest and wet playlists of music about nothing on Spotify?”
Can someone do this for books and music please? // Art seen in films.
I like this advice. You never know where you might go // “Always be ready to go on the adventure”. My grandmother told me this was the reason she wore make-up – so she was always ready to accept a lovely invitation, to go where she pleased, to feel her best while she was there.”
Digital marketing today // “do nice things for real people in the real world, film it, put it on YouTube.”
If you build it they might not come // “Content is king’ is not totally true – the real king is more often than not the grid or the template that decides where the ‘content’ ends up.”
Silence is golden // “a break in your own city is often more about getting away from other people. Hiding from them, indeed. Just occasionally, what could be nicer than to find yourself in a silent zone of discretion?”
The internet didn’t invent stealing // “the interesting thing is not why do some people get stuff for free — they’ve done that for as long as there have been libraries or people singing on street corners. The interesting thing for me, as a creator, is how do I ensure that my share of the money that people spend is as large as possible?”
