What I've Been Collecting Lately

I've been woefully bad about posting the last two weeks.  Work, family, travel ... eh, you get it.  But I've always said my blog is nothing more than a place I collect things, so here are a few things I've collected lately. 

  • Jimmy Choo partners with Foursquare on what I think is a simple and effective foray into social media.  "One pair of Jimmy Choo trainers will check in at various locations and those who follow the campaign and are lucky enough to arrive at a venue before the trainers leave will get to pick a pair in the style and size of their choosing."
  • Springwise turned me me on a company called Offer Me a Trip.  Travel agents bid on a dream trip that you design.  Mine:  skiing on every continent within a two week period.
  • John Lewis - a UK retailer that I'm not familiar with - released this superb short film (via @BBHLabs).  Very touching.
