Fuss Fridays: a fortnightly list of essentials


Say hello to Fuss Fridays! Inspired by Tim Ferriss, I'm sharing with you six essentials that I’ve been obsessing over.

I’m about to dive into ‘Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind’ by Yuval Noah Harari—a summer reading pick of former President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg. It’s also highly recommended by Emily Weiss (founder and CEO of Glossier, a three-year-old beauty brand that just completed Series C funding—raising $52 million dollars!!)

“From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.”—Amazon.

Bill Gates guessing grocery store prices on The Ellen Show... need I say more?!


Also, Drake—God’s Plan. The budget for this music video was $996,631.90… are you intrigued?

Girlboss Radio: Priya Malani: Entrepreneur and founder of Stash Wealth. Priya designed a financial planning strategy for millennials—an entire generation that’s still largely ignored by traditional financial institutions.


Crate and Barrel Stainless Steel Straws. These were actually a holiday gift for my mum (or mom), but turns out I get more use out of them than her as they’re perfect for sipping on chilled smoothies. Lately I’ve been taking on a bit more of an environmental approach to my lifestyle—even swapping plastic grocery bags for reusable canvas ones when possible.

Whitney Wolfe Herd (@whitwolfeherd) —founder and CEO of Bumble, the dating app that lets women make the first move. The company has since expanded into Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz


Wholegrain spelt hot cross buns! Although, I pick out the raisins because I’m a bit of a freak...
