Young people have been brought up in a generation of social media addiction. Everything is documented on the internet and people lay there life bare on these sites for anyone to see. This type of behaviour seems normal to millennials but now that they are entering the world of work, employers often go through their social media accounts and may find something that was not meant for their eyes.

Snapchat’s hyped redesign has been unveiled, and it finally separates business and pleasure.

Social media plumped the visual appeal of nutrition and food porn is, evidently, a thing. The way we relate to food is often conflicting. It represents one of the key elements of our existence, yet, at the same time, it partly measures our self-worth and confidence.
Seems like celebrities will always sell a name ahead of the real people. But then where does this generation of young entrepreneurs stand? A decade ago, the fashion industry had been and still is, conquered by a roster of well-known and talented brands such as Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood etc. Even socialites such as Rob Kardashian, Megan McKenna or even Sophia Richie who have no form of experience at all, have managed to jump straight into their own labels, whatever happened to the saying ‘A dream doesn't become reality through magic’. Must be nice having the power to be whoever they want to be – a lawyer today and an actress the next. Becoming a designer has always been a dream of mine but in order to get where I want to be, I have to put in 101% effort because it’s a t
