For those of you who hadn’t guessed from the title, this is a topic that is somewhat close to my heart and one that I’m prone to rant about. My life is based in the digital world, I absorb news through it, I share my views on it and my career is inextricably linked with the evolution of technology and the internet. I am, by almost every definition, a millennial. Born between 1984 and 1992, lovers of technology, entrepreneurial and generally disruptive to the established order due to their beliefs and perspectives.
What angers me, however, is that mainstream media is treating millennials as if we are a group of petulant children refusing to work or contribute to any facet of modern society. For just a small perspective on this attitude you can see a list of Business Insider’s articles about what industries millenials are “killing”, from golf to light yoghurt, napkins and (apparently) vacations.

Each of these establishments feels special and has a quiet air of eccentricity without looking overly flashy. More importantly, however, they all offer an experience to their consumers which heightens any meal and will leave your guests thanking you for taking them there… View Post

The transition between Autumn and Summer is always tricky to navigate when it comes to outfits. Cold, crisp mornings give way to warm afternoons in the sun before cooling again into chilly evenings, so putting together a style that suits these elements can be difficult to pull off. What you need is something that is light enough to be comfortable to wear when things get warmer but not so thin that you’ll feel the cold when a strong wind picks up. So, I put together this outfit as a way of crossing two seasons with one look…
