Labels against Women

Gender stereotypes are definitely something I come up against being a full time working mum in a senior leadership role at work (I have touched on it in a previous blog post).

However, as much as I could write about it, I think the below Pantene ad* sums it up and illustrates it brilliantly.  It shows just how differently the same actions can be viewed.

Such a powerful message. We need more of it.

*although I can't say that it will make me go out and convert to Pantene shampoo....

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...
