1. In case you missed it... Last week I was in my hometown of London for a fantastic Work Party with special guest mentor (and my very old friend) Sharmadean Reid - who was brilliant and wise as always. Watch back 30 minutes of our chat (sadly the camera cut out on us after that) over here.
2. Huge thanks to the fabulous group of businesswomen and bossgyals that attended the London event, and to Breather who provided our gorgeous space. Peep the pics (by Tom Donald) overhere.
3. A good download, should you be making a long car/train/bus journey this week: Stella McCartney on Desert Island Discs.
4. And a good long(er) read to keep your mind ticking over once you've finished listening to the above: Zadie Smith on Get Out and Dana Schutz's Open Casket.
5. An intriguing article on one woman's 'relationship contract' - read'The 36 Questions That Lead to Love' first, if you haven't already' - thatgot me thinking about human relationships in general, and how our lack of transparency and direct communication is perhaps the source of all our interpersonal woes. What's your take?
6. I'm looking forward to heading to MoMa PS1 to check outLumen by Jenny Sabin, the winner of this year's Young Architects Program award. (Ditto PS1's Warm Up Sessions, which are always a highlight of summers in NYC.)
7. If, like me, you're always on the hunt for new, good music - check out Framework: a weekly-updated playlist by my friend Jacqueline Schneider (listen to us in conversation at an event i did in LA way back in 2015!), who definitely has 'the ear'.
8. Kudos to The Financial Diet for this super-transparent post on how their site actually makes money. An insightful read for anyone seeking to monetise an online media business.
9. I liked Another's round-up of five emerging Japanese female photographers you might want to know about. Hiromi Kakimoto's work (above) is an extra-dreamy new discovery.
10. Time rounds up the 25 most influential people on the Internet. Great to see a power list where half of those included are women.
