This week I was asked what my career Plan B would be. And not a genuine Plan B based off my current skill set and education (answer: I have absolutely no idea what I’d do), but a ‘if I could go back and start all over again without limitations’ one. I settled on archeologist or art curator. Weird, huh? I’m going to leave you with that question for your Sunday – what would you do? – Jenn
Here’s what has been spinning around in our heads this week:
- Every day we give away our secrets, messages, family photos, likes and dislikes for free, but this artist has had enough of companies knowing, owning and selling on everything they have on her. She’s turned herself into a corporation and charging for her personal data. (The Creators Project)
- This one is going to be buzzing for a while (and rightly so) – the stories of the 35 women assaulted by Bill Cosby go public in a huge front page cover story by the New York Times. (The Cut) #LongRead #GetToKnow
- Dropbox is as much of a daily staple as smoothies or milk. But here are 7 handy things you might not have known you can do with the nifty cloud storage tool… it’s all about automation. (Refinery 29)
- Jane Birkin has demanded Hermes stop using her name for the most coveted bag in history. (FT)
- We all saw, read or heard about Cara’s (or should I say Carla’s) supposed haughty interview with Good Morning Sacremento. John Green, author of the adapted film that she stars in, Paper Towns, has hit back with a very accurately penned essay highlighting the ridiculousness of the questions she was asked (and it says something about the rest of Hollywood junket interviews too). Go John! (Medium)
- Sistem51 – the timepiece that’s about to revolutionize the watch world. And no, it’s not made by Apple but a brand that will take you back to your childhood. Now if only they could make them less… plastic… (Slated)
- We are loving Pyscle London‘s June workout playlist by Tameka. Perfect for a high bpm 30 minute workout. (Spotify)

Our snapshot this week is of the National Gallery in London. It doesn’t exactly have the same glamorous ring as ‘sitting on the steps of The Met’, but it’s pretty damn beautiful in the sun.
