The Digital Age...

We live in a digital age, there's no doubt about that. I've grown up alongside the increasing use of technology and digital medias. Everything has been digitalised, even down to paying for items using your phone. MIND BLOWING!

But in a digital age there is something concerning.. something that many people in my generation and those younger than me won't be thinking about. So we all get old right? That's just a fact of life. But what happens when our memory starts to play up? Where are all the tangible memories our children can use to help us? What happens if we lose our memory? Sure, you can show me pictures, tweets and all sorts, but would that really help us?

Tangible memories are priceless. They mean something to you, and only you. Writing it down, buying a souvenir, anything. It's something that I really think poses as an issue for my generation. I mean, don't get me wrong, I LOVE social media and all things digital, of course I do! But at the same time, I al…

The Little Chick turns 21

My baby sister is officially 21!

We've had a fabulous weekend in London celebrating... SO much cake was consumed, but it was 100% worth it! I'm going a bit personal with this post, a whistle stop of my weekend, along with a couple of reviews of the places we went to.

Friday we enjoyed Afternoon Tea at Madd Hatters, which was lovely. Consisting of brownies, millionaires shortbread, teacakes, savory bites, Rooibos tea and an Oreo cupcake. Spot on!

Then we headed off to the Roadhouse in Covent Garden for a night of music, cocktails and dancing. A fabulous night out, live music is right up my street! 

Saturday, along with ringing ears, we headed to Borough Market, the off to Tea and Tattle - even MORE cake! It was a brilliant weekend though!

I can't believe the little one is 21 though, she's my world and my twin (just a few years apart!)

Happy Birthday to my sister!

Lets get social! Get tweeting or LinkedIn Disclaimer: This blog reflects my own opinions, not those of my employer

Social Media Etiquette...

Right, so the main focus of this is on LinkedIn. Quite frankly it's become somewhat of an annoyance. Why oh why have people forgotten that LinkedIn is a professional platform?! If I want to do a maths question or see a picture of cars I would just Google... LinkedIn is a professional networking platform!

Yes, I post my blog, marketing articles and advertising things, but no I don't post selfies and all sorts of odd things! I think a LinkedIn connections cull might be in order... 

The bad press that LinkedIn has received recently with it being used as a dating site etc is another fuel for this fire, let's leave that to Tinder shall we? So that's my opinion on the matter... Let me know your thoughts!

The Detox

To start off with: I originally wrote this on paper... yup, paper. Old school.

A couple of weeks ago (Mon-Thurs) I've had a social media detox - well not on the work accounts and snapchats were still sent... but all my other personal accounts I didn't touch. WELL DONE ME! No tweets, no FB posts, no Insta love... And do you know what, I felt amazing for it! So Liberating! I was sick of seeing everyone getting engaged, announcing their pregnancy or traveling pictures! Anyone else ever tried the social detox? I have realised I need to post less... Facebook is only being kept for pictures and events (birthday reminders are essential!).

Does anyone actually remember life before social media? MSN, Bebo, Myspace, Facebook... It's never ending and there is so much pressure to be involved with everything that is going on. "Did you see that on Facebook...?" "Oh did you see that tweet...?" Maybe its more my generation, I'm not sure. There is a guy I know, who de…
