The Weekend Reading List

Weekend Reading List

Have you watched the Fyre Festival documentary on Netflix yet? I’ve been talking about it with friends all week. And it doesn’t help that I read Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup, this week, which tells the story of another young and controversial entrepreneur (Theranos founder, Elizabeth Holmes).

In 2015 Elizabeth Holmes was named the youngest and wealthiest self-made female billionaire in America, and she was pitted at the next Steve Jobs. But by the following year it had become clear that Holmes’ company was based on a series of false claims, and she had a dramatic fall from grace. (I couldn’t help but draw parallels to Fyre Festival’s Billy McFarland).

Bad Blood investigates Holmes’ rise and fall, and the book is currently being adapted for screen, with Jennifer Lawrence set to play Elizabeth Holmes. I cannot wait!

Anyway, onto more talking points from the week…

Are you also confused about the current trend for celery juice? The team at Man Repeller shed some light on what’s going on (I’m convinced the celery industry has hired a marketing team haha).

4 food bloggers share their favourite comfort food recipes.

This chunky knit cardigan has climbed to the top of my wish list. It’s perfect for lazy days at home.

Four yoga poses to help loosen tight hips (they’re a must for anyone who sits at a desk all day).

Making a new set of friends as an adult can be daunting a daunting prospect. But this post has some great tips to put into practise.

What to do if your New Year hasn’t got off to a good start.

The 2019 Oscar nominations were announced this week. Who are you rooting for?

Isn’t this snake print pleated skirt super-cute?

I love the mix of colours and prints in this pretty Atlanta home. It’s now made me want to wallpaper a wall in my apartment.

Apparently pigtails are making a comeback, this year. Would you wear them? It’s a firm no from me…

And, in case you missed the announcement on Monday, I’ve re-released my e-book, which shares everything you need to know to launch a successful lifestyle blog.

      From what my yoga instructors say, it’s really common to have tights hips if you spend a lot of time sitting at a computer etc. Also, like your shoulders, it’s a key area that people hold a lot of their stress within the body. Those poses are all so lovely, so hopefully they’ll help xxx
