Tech Boot Camp for a Cause

Me and my friends are organizing a boot camp for teenagers aging 13-18. It is about technology which will focus on the theme, “We Tech, We Rock.” This boot camp aims to help these kids, who are all inclined to learning so much more about technology and what it can offer.

Here are the things that they will be trained for:

  1. Website Development
  2. App Development
  3. Social Media Management
  4. Graphics and Design
  5. Copy Writing

We are also happy to announce that in this tech boot camp, we invited fellow techpreneurs who will talk about these topics in different days. Mila Quebec, a 27-year-old Filipina who is working in the Silicon Valley, is set to tackle website development, and app development on the first day.

She has been working as an app marketing specialist for a few start-up companies. She will be followed by Patrick Musac, a entrepreneur, a good website builder who has gained credentials in building websites for charities. He will talk about social media management.

Lastly, photographer and artist Lea Van Der Hyde will tackle the topic graphics and designs and copywriting. She has been a copywriter for seven years now, as well as a freelance graphic artists for various giant companies.

In this line, we are still open to welcoming sponsors for this event. We hope to encourage possible sponsors to help us go through with the cause and eventually tap other organizations who might be interested in giving scholarships to these promising kids.

THE TWELVE FESTIVAL ESSENTIALS I WON’T BE WITHOUT…

Now, unless you’ve been AWOL from all forms of media (social or otherwise), you will be well aware that we’re in the midst of one of the best times of the year: festival season. I myself am off to Leeds in August, and to say I’m buzzing for it is quite the understatement, and whilst my Twitter and Bloglovin’ feed is full of festival fashion and beauty posts, I decided to put together a post about the things you REALLY need to be taking with you.

VALENTINE’S CHEAP DATE NIGHT IDEAS

So here we are again, another cheap Valentine’s guide (I won’t tell him if you don’t…) I wanted to try and think of some dates we could go on on a budget of £20 each, as I’ve seen so many restaurants offering ‘AMAZING, STUPENDOUS VALENTINE’S 3 COURSE MEAL AT ONLY £47 PER PERSON’ which I personally believe to be ridiculous! (Especially when they normally charge £15 for the same thing).

Realistically, we might stay in on Valentine’s. I’m kind of tempted not to go out, as I don’t see why you should pay so much money to be surrounded by waiters who don’t want to be serving so many loved-up couples, with couples filled with so much expectation. My idea of a good Valentine’s is cooking together, lighting some candles, reminiscing on your relationship and getting cosy. You’re with them because you love them, so Valentine’s to me is the perfect excuse to be selfish and not share your other half with anyone else.

MY FAVOURITE PLACE IN OXFORD – G&DS CAFE

So I have a confession. For a few years now, I have been cheating on the pin-ups of all things ice cream, Ben & Jerry’s.

I know, I know, who could be so amazing that I deem them more important than the two men who have always been there to pick me up in times of trouble?

I’ll tell you who. George & D (D being the biggest mystery in Oxford history – who actually is the D?!) or G&Ds as you may know them.

Never heard of them? Let me take you on a trip to one of their three little cafes spread out around Oxford – be sure to pack your expandable trousers!

BURGER THURSDAYS – BYRON BURGER

Eating burgers. On Thursdays. Could there be a better set up? (Apart from, obviously, having them every day instead…)

So a few posts ago, when I filled you all in on the #OxMeet, I mentioned meeting up with Hannah from the rather fabulous Pinafores and Pies before heading on to Wagamama’s to meet everyone. Having chatted non-stop, we figured we must meet up again and continue where we left off, and what better way to do that, than over burgers?

THE WANDER-LIST

I genuinely think I was born to travel. My plan is to work my socks off for the next two years (whilst undergoing Invisalign treatment), and then take off for the mother of all adventures. Where’s on my list? So many places that I most definitely want to share with you – but that’s a post for a different day.

However, until then, I have a whole 22 days per year to take off from my office job, and I plan to fill them with as many mini-trips as possible. My first is coming up in about six weeks (eeeee!!) when I’m taking off to a villa with friends in Spain, but what’s after that??

CRABTREE & EVELYN AND A TRIP TO CLEAVER

Guyyyys life has been totally running away with me at the moment. If it isn’t work, it’s a drama performance, if it isn’t those, it’s booking a holiday for myself and nine friends – it’s all beyond a little manic and I’m afraid to say my blog has been somewhat neglected.

Bad times.

However, today I have a little lifestyle post for you all about what I got up to after work a few weeks ago (wow, what a hook – have I reeled you all in yet??)

A LITTLE LIFE UPDATE (AGAIN!)

Hi folks,

Crikey me, it’s that time again – so many things keep getting in the way of blogging that I’m finding life catch up posts are more and more necessary!

So what have I been up to this time?I think the question is what haven’t I been up to (or not…)

In no particular order, here’s a little glimpse into what I’ve been doing/enjoying/eating/wearing/buying over the past two weeks…

WINING, DINING & ONE HECTIC WEEK…

Happy-bank-holiday-weekend folks!! Boy do I need a three day weekend.

I thought I’d just do a quick life catch up, having not posted for a little while, and having gone AWOL on all forms of social media. Us lifestyle bloggers are a nosy curious bunch, so I figured I’d fill you all in on my most recent adventures (you lucky thangs!)

So, lets zip on back to last Saturday, when the sun was blaring down and my thoughts had turned to all things ‘Operation-Let’s-Get-A-Tan’ (easier said than done, as a naturally pale and freckly English lass).
