5 Things You Should Have In Your Office

Earlier this year, I made the jump and started working as a freelance social media manager. It’s been a great five months, I am having so much fun and learning a lot along the way. The first couple of months I worked out of my bed, the sofa, my local library and even the nearest Costa. As I’m finally starting to get into the swing of things, I decided it is about time I sort out a workspace of my own. We recently re-did our living room and I set aside a corner of the room for  ...

Brands Like THINX Are The Future

THINX are a company from America that make underwear that can be worn during your period. Their pants are designed to be used as a substitute or a supplement to traditional menstrual products. Late last year the company found themselves under fire for their subway ads. This in turn made THINX a hot topic on social media and arguably made them more mainstream. If it wasn’t for this backlash, I would never have heard of them.     I love those Thinx period underwear ads on the  ...
