Girl on the go...

21 March 2018

 

Whether you’re a busy working woman or a mum chasing the kids around, we can relate to being a busy girl on the go. We’ve found that many of us have similar bad habits, one of which is being late! It can be hard to find time in the day to fit everything in but we have complied a list of tips and essential products to help those busy days go a little smoother...

Start the morning right with a coffee. This is a mantra that many of us follow, but not just any coffee; we want fresh, organically grown, eco-friendly coffee that helps the enviornment. One such brand is @Unioncoffee, although they don’t own any coffee shops, their coffee is used in many different independent cafes in London and across the UK. They are doing so much for the environment and offering a fantastic product. Find out more about them and all of their great work here; https://www.unionroasted.com/blog/03/15/take-away-cups/ 

Whether we are taking clients for meetings or catching up with friends for brunch, we are always looking for a venue with great healthy food, a relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.  Below is a list of three of our current favourites

Between rushing around the city for meetings or preparing exhibitions at Top Drawer Olympia or Spring Fair at the NEC our sales girls swear by a comfy and stylish pair of trainers! For the ultimate urban luxe look, pair trainers with a pleated gold skirt and simple tee, allowing you to look effortlessly cool on the go. Here are our favourite flats...

All great ideas start in a notebook and if you let it, a notebook can become a platform for your imagination. This is why we always carry ours with us wherever we go, as you never know where inspiration might hit. Which is how we came up with these fun, glossy multi tab notebooks, perfect for keeping your notes neat and organised.

How many of you can’t put your phone down for more than five minutes? Our lives have started to evolve around them more and more, so why not use them to help other areas of your life? Although it is important to work hard, down time is also highly important too. These three apps are our personal favourites to help you stay on top of your game throughout the week.

When it’s time to get back to the office we feel that a happy desk helps create a happy work life. On a designers desk stationery items are just another accessory that should be as beautiful as our imaginations. Shop our top stationery picks for an Instagram ready desk.

As with any girl on the go you want to carry your life around but need to stay hands free.  Well look no further, here are two brand new bags to keep you looking stylish, your life organised and your hands free...

When it comes to taking the edge off after work, London really has it all to offer. With some of the best pubs, bars and restaurants in the world, we are spoilt for choice. We asked the girls in the office to pick some of their favourite hangouts...

Working hard means we sometimes forget to give ourselves a well earned break to recharge the batteries, enjoy other cultures and have fun! Whether it’s a city break or lounging by the pool to take our mind off of the stresses and strains of a busy life, we never go anywhere without these travel essentials.
