  • The Queen's Gambit beth harmon

    100% Inspired

    Opposed to the normal #businessbossbish I’d be inspired by. This week I was enthralled by Beth Harmon, the chess prodigy orphan from The Queen’s Gambit. In this Netflix binger, Beth Harmon becomes the queen of chess, smashing it against her male opponents. All the while having tranquillizers and alcohol for breakfast, lunch and dinner (I just noticed the…

    Who needs college when you have underwear?

    Better “Bitch” than “Mouse” – RIP RBG

    IT WAS SO FRUSTRATING to only discover about RBG’s existence since this weekend.. yes I just crawled from under a rock, don’t judge 🙅🏻‍♀️. If you’re with me and didn’t know about her – here’s a quick summary of why we should’ve known about Ruth Bader Ginsburg already. Ruth was one of nine women in a Harvard class of 500+ men,…

    Underdog boss ladies, part II: Vicky Tsai / Tatcha

    I don’t know cosmetics, I have no patience researching it. I just follow what Janet/Naomi slap on their face and then I copy it. I never heard about Tatcha, but learnt that their products are inspired by what Geisha’s use in their skincare routine and Kim K and Princess/Duchess/Rachel Zane/ Meghan Markle are fans. Tatcha was built by Taiwanese Vicky Tsai and…

    I boss, you boss, we boss

    I’ve been listening to “How I built this” that gives insights, anecdotes and founder stories. Everyone knows the Uber, Airbnb and Toms but although they’re definitely aspirational, it just hits closer to home when I hear a woman talk about building out her passion and grinding her way thru success. So this week I present to…

    Relaxation in a digital age

    I don’t know what’s happening in the world today. I was introduced to ASMR last year by the 15 y.o. crew and next to feeling old, I have been seeing this pop up more and more over the past months.  I should make this a “What the F” corner, because bro, seriously: What the actual F? The above video is…
