Did you know Louis Vuitton is a writer? For a while now, the luxury brand has put out super expensive city guides that cover places like Milan, Paris, Shanghai – a total of 25 cities from around the world. It’s the kind of gift travelers would love to have in their collection but also the kind that most of us can’t (or don’t want) to afford.
Well, Louis Vuitton is making its city guides accessible to all via a mobile app (iOS only). 24 city guides are available for download @ $9.99 each. You can download Paris for FREE until December 31st if you want just give it a spin and see what it’s like. Check out the video below for a brief intro. Individual city videos are also available as a playlist (~3 minutes each in the designer’s YouTube channel). Enjoy!
I live for a non-fiction book recommendation! That’s exactly what I got this morning while planning a Women’s networking event with a co-worker. The book is called The Confidence Code, published in April of 2014 by Claire Shipman, a regular contributor to “Good Morning America” and Katty Kay, anchor for BBC World News America in Washington.
“Confidence. We know it when we see it or think we do. And we want it for ourselves. The authors deconstruct this essential, elusive, and misunderstood quality and offer a blueprint to bring more of it into our lives. Inspiring, insightful, and persuasive, The Confidence Code shows that by acting on our best instincts and by daring to be authentic, women can feel the transformative power of a life on confidence.”
I have not read this book (nor have I ever heard of it) but I 100% trust her reading taste! While discussing the book, she noted that she hates non-fiction (which this book is) but was able to easily get through it. That should be good news for those of you who may feel the same way. So watch (the video below) or purchase the book and start reading ~ I am!!
