Choosing the right e-commerce platform for your business

Starting an online store with e-commerce can be a tricky thing. A lot more goes into e-commerce than simply selling. You’ve come up with a grand master plan to take over the business world. You hope to make a million in the space of a year and be living on a private yacht in the Bahamas by year two. That’s the dream of many budding entrepreneurs, right? Perhaps not. For those of you wanting to get into business to develop your career rather than make a quick buck then you’re already heading in the right direction. I started my......

Barcelona - What a city!

If you read my last post you will know that I was in Barcelona last week. A beautiful city full of character and charm. It’s somewhere I recommend everyone to visit. I’ll be back one day to do it all again. Sitting by the pool all day and having a tanning holiday is not for me. Mostly because I’m too pale to tan, but I also find it boring. Exploring new cities and their culture is what gets me excited about holidays. And because I’m not a huge jet setter, holidays are rare for me. So anywhere I go......

Anxiety in Barcelona

Time needs to slow down. Last week I was in Barcelona and now I’m back into my routine of work, gym, work and sleep. It’s almost as if the holiday never happened. However, it did. The incredible architecture will forever be remembered, as will the vivacity of the city. It’s such a change of pace in Barcelona. For a big city, it’s one of the most chilled out places I’ve ever visited. But it took me a couple of days to chill out myself before I could fully appreciate all Barcelona had to offer. Mum and I flew out......

The Rise and Fall of Print and Digital News: Journalistic Integrity and Social Media

It is with heavy heart that the news this week has been engaged with in print and online. There will always be tragedy that is prevalent in the media, some more devastating than others. While it is the news’ job to keep us informed of events as they unfold, in this digital age we are consumed by the world around us – and not always in a good way. In light of this week’s upsetting attack at the Manchester Arena on Monday 22nd May, 2017, journalistic integrity has been put to the test. This integrity goes far beyond whether......

District23 Playlists

It’s Music Monday but with a twist. As always the usual playlist has been updated with the best tracks of the past week. There are 31 songs for you this week! But today I wanted to give you some music that was a bit more genre specific and straight from the District23 studio. As you’re aware, wherever I am there is music playing. With so much music played I can easily give you my favourites of the week. But what about my favourites in a certain genre? District23 has released two new playlists for you to have a listen......

Playing Cards Reimagined

Graphic design comes in all shapes and sizes. Today it comes in the form of playing cards. They are an overlooked form of design. Their straight edges and slight rounded corners are simplistic in shape. Yet they are iconic to what a standard playing card shape should be. The actual design however can be reinterpreted as many times as possible. After all there are 52 cards to design. They can all look unique or completely uniform depending on the designer. Some may be heavy on illustration whereas others may take a completely new approach and focus on strong line work. Even......

February Favourites

February has come and gone. How are we now in the third month of the year? We’re almost a quarter of the way through 2017. That blows my mind. It feels like I haven’t accomplished all that much other than eating and sleeping. Last month I gave you my January favourites. This month I don’t have as many items as I don’t want to bore you with every tv show I’ve loved. Plus February is a short month. So here are just a few of my favourites. 1. Protein Bar | 2. Santa Clarita Diet  | 3. Sampha | 4. District23 Be Well | 5.......
