What makes a good design? What makes a great designer? Does it have anything to do with taste? Does it matter? The question I prefer to ask is how does the designer's work make me feel? What does it inspire in me? If the answer is nothing, then subjectively, it's not for me.

During the presentations at Elms Lesters Painting Rooms there was time to be consumed by the building and the designer's visual storytelling. Not having show notes to read through while sitting, waiting for a show to start means no advance intro to the clothing and seasonal theme, however a presentation offers less pretence and puts the experience above all else.

Many young people find the idea of starting their own business to be so daunting that they never give it a go. The number of people slaving away, doing jobs that make them deeply unhappy, when they clearly have the talent and discipline to successfully follow a career path that they actually enjoy, is something that saddens me.

Everyone is wearing a Fitbit. Everyone that is except me. I am not wearing a Fitbit and nor shall I in the foreseeable future. I am not even a "bit fit" so it probably is not the gadget for me.

Aside from becoming more inclusive (and ensuring we address the issues that face modern men- be that balancing work with parenthood or the pressure to conform to the 'gym body' aesthetic) - it's important that feminism doesn't feel like just another trend.

I've learned to accept my straight up straight down figure. Yes, I'd quite like to have bigger boobs, but only in the same way I'd like to have a mansion with a tennis court. My mum is skinny. My nan is really skinny. Inevitably, I'm always going to be a bit on the skinny side.
