Failure to Launch | How to get out of your own way

Failure to Launch | How to get out of your own way and launch your idea

  Failure to launch gets the better of us time and time again. It stops us in its tracks with a flighty, restrictive breath feeling right in our chests. What if we were to use this feeling as energy? How can we use fear to fire us up ready to take on the next challenge? …

26 ways to consume less & create more

26 ways to consume less & create more | Rebecca Hawkes

With the approach of Black Friday and the intense consumerist drive it gives us annually, why not pair back instead and focus on what is important. Embracing the concept of ‘minimalism’ and the less serious statement of ‘who the heck is going to mention your expensive shoes at your funeral?’. I ask myself and you, …

Create an ethical business and give back with your brand

Create social good and give back with your brand | Rebecca Hawkes

From charities, non-profits to eco friendly businesses and voting with your dollar, there is power in giving back.

Cheating on Fall with Autumn

Living abroad (from the UK) I often hear Norwegian using American words over the English. I cannot blame them with most television programs and films coming from the US.

Spotlight On // Fanny Latour Lambert

Sometimes great things happen. Like stumbling across art that makes your eyes light up. This was the case when I came across the photographs of French photographer Fanny Latour-Lambert. Her images are playful, thought out in a way that makes me go ‘huh? what a great way to look at that theme’ (for example her …
