    Obsession For Perfection: Positives, detractions and drive

    Obsession For Perfection: Positives, detractions and drive

    As a practicing minimalist and self professed perfectionist, whatever I own should be providing me with a sense of happiness or be the best in its category. I have been on a journey for at least a couple years in search of the 'perfect' baseball cap. Enter Varsity Headwear. For years Alex and Seb have been concentrating on creating the perfect cap, nothing else. 

    Their obsession for perfection allowed us to look introspectively at our own lives and how being a perfectionist can both aid your life but also how your own journey for perfect must be identified and managed. We discuss how the term obsession has been stigmatised in society and how and why we must reassess our view on perfection and obsession.

    Preparing For Parenting: Advice, mindset and compromising

    Preparing For Parenting: Advice, mindset and compromising

    If you are not aware, there is quite a significant age difference between myself and Umar, myself being in my mid twenties and Umar in his mid forties, this can potentially be quite surprising but alas, it is true. He has always been rather vocal about parenting techniques and the generational shift of what would be regarded as 'good parenting'. 

    I ask a series of questions that could help millennials like myself understand the world of parenting and what we can do to prepare and make the most of having children and a family. As we find ourselves in an ever changing society it has never been more important to understand our environment and think about how the next generation want to bring our children up in this new age.

    Physical Books vs Ebooks: Experience, convenience and environmental impact

    Physical Books vs Ebooks: Experience, convenience and environmental impact

    5 years ago most people on the tube, train or bus would be cradling their cherished kindle, their eyes glued to the e-ink screens, watching the screen flash black and white as the pages are turned. However, now it is far more common to see people endearingly and proudly displaying their beautiful hardback, showcasing to those around them they are appreciate 'real' books. But should we be concentrating on increasing our ebooks usage or go back to the good old paperback? 

    We have partnered with Marianne and Danielle at  The Willoughby Book Club to bring you this episode! Aiming to bridge the convenience aspect discussed in the episode they provide a tailored and bespoke service of which after they understand your taste they will curate a collection of books for you every month and send it to your door. A service that truly makes you feel special and exposes you to books you may not have necessarily picked yourself. Definitely something you can't get from an e-reader.
