The {Other} Interestings #5

I collected these articles for June but I missed the deadline so let’s just pretend I found them this month. I hope you find these interesting. Happy reading!

Happy Friday! How’s your day going? I hope all is well with you.

The week before this was pretty hectic for me. After my internship ended at Fusion Retail Brands, I spent approximately 1.5 hours travelling between the CBD and Chadstone for a 4 day styling course with Style With Cindy. During these four days, I had 5.45 AM starts and I usually reach home at 7 PM. I know some form of exercise will make me feel better but I need to fit in dinner, shower and some me-time (very important!) before 10 PM so I ended up not exercising for 4 days.

It definitely wasn’t a big deal but the lack of exercise made me feel really lethargic.

The day after I finished the course, I finally have time to clean my studio, run errands, meet a friend, exercise and prepare lunch for the week. And before you know it, it’s time to sleep and go back to work the next day.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad that I signed up for the course. I’m glad that when the public transport failed me, Uber was there to save me. I’m glad that during those four days I made new friends, challenged myself and had a really good time. The only thing I didn’t enjoy at all was contracting tonsillitis. Two weeks of severe sore throat, blocked nose and mild headaches weren’t pleasant at all. Now you know why you haven’t seen a post for this segment in awhile.

If you’re new here (hello!), The {Other} Interestings is a segment where I gather a collection of articles that I think are helpful, thought provoking or just downright fascinating to share with the community. Without further ado, let’s dive in shall we?

  1. Have you ever wondered why inequality still largely exists in this era? According to research, this might be one of the reasons.
  2. Don’t sweat it when you make mistakes. Susie Moore explains how dropping the ball could benefit you.
  3. The idea of someone chasing and buying the newest make up products baffles me. I mean, mine last me for years (some I had for way too long) and where do they store their “old” products?? That said, this behavior is starting to dwindle as the latest makeup trend is not buying more makeup.  (Surprised? Me too.)
  4. Did you know that your life experiences could land you a job?
  5. Everyone is always trying to do more with the Time that they have. So how do you work more margin into your life? Find out here.
  6. I love jewelry and what makes me really happy is seeing more brands taking the initiative to direct their proceeds to help those in need. If you haven’t already, perhaps consider supporting brands such as Kicheko Goods.

 

7. If you’re (or were) a Marketing student, you’ll know that there are many factors that need to be taken into account before launching a campaign. Unfortunately, not all marketers can predict how consumers would react.

8. There’s panic in the world of retail as an increasing number of stores ceased operation in Australia. But Japanese brand Uniqlo is unlikely to be one of the victims. Smart Company explains why.

9. Attention all female yogis! Have you ever wondered if it’s safe for you to do inversions when you’re having your period?

10. “We need to accelerate the fashion industry’s transition to a more circular system by increasing the volume of textiles collected, reused and recycled by 2020,” says Eva Kruse, president and chief executive of the Global Fashion Agenda (GFA).” -Business of Fashion

That’s all I have for you today. Enjoy the rest of your Friday and stay tuned for more!

  1. A lot of information for me 🙂 I didnt know that uniqlo is Japanese (and I thought I know the origin of all brands in the universe, lol), but knowing that I am not surprised they managed to embrace their business. I used to work with one Japanese company for an IT project and they left a very good impression. Few people I meet seemed to me business focused and long term goals oriented. Thumbs up for them to be effective in their actions. 🙂
