Emma Barnes created Wild Fawn in January 2015 when her love for making and drawing transformed into the love of working with silver and gold to make timeless jewellery that can be enjoyed every day. Each piece of jewellery is made by hand in her London studio, which is important to Emma because it means that there has been no exploitation of workers or unnecessary C02 emissions from transport to bring you Wild Fawn Jewellery.
IS INSTAGRAM A WASTE OF TIME?
Hands up if you waste time on Instagram?
I know I do. It’s so easily done because Instagram is so alluring. If I’m not careful, with one trip I find myself tumbling down a rabbit hole, cartwheeling through The Land of Unattainable until I am completely disorientated. What feels like days later I finally come up for air with little more to show for my expedition than stinging eyeballs and a sinking feeling that my life doesn’t quite measure up.
So how can we avoid this dizzying drain on our precious time, get a grip of Instagram, and make sure the time we do spend on the platform is purposeful and rewarding for our businesses?
Actually it’s quite simple. As is usually the case with marketing, we need to be clear about why. Why are you using Instagram for your business and what are you hoping to achieve? Here’s my checklist of the top three questions to ask yourself before you hit that Insta icon.

London Design Festival 2017 was an unravelled showcase of creativity across the capital. The festival took place from 16-24 September 2017 and this year marked the 15th anniversary. #LDF17 is a dynamic celebration of design showcasing the work of artists, architects, designers and retailers. This year was a clear indicator that our city is in fact the capital of design!
The Pulse Team have rounded up our top 3 highlights from the London Design Festival 2017:
1. designjuction gateway
designjunction welcomed visitors to the curated show of cutting edge interior design, with a stunning ceramic gateway by designer Adam Nathaniel Furman and Turkishceramics in Granary Square. The amazing installation consisted of four colourfully tiled arches that encouraged visitors to immerse in walkways of colour. The bold and immersive display reflected historical reference relating to the Ottoman Empire.
2. Villa Walala
The playful installation titled Villa Walala by renowned Camille Walala, was a magnificent display of her bold graphic designs in collaboration with British Land. Located in Broadgate's exchange centre the huge inflatable sculpture has been described as ‘soft-textured building-block castle' evoking the unexpected in amidst the busy city life. An incredible display of vibrancy and colour this was a must see during the London Design Festival 2017.
3. Refection Room
The Victoria and Albert Museum played host to a range of commissioned installations across #LDF17, however the vibrancy of the “Reflection Room” caught our attention. An amazing hall of light was created by Flynn Talbot who transformed the former textile room into an immersive colour experience. Vivid orange and blue hue lights illuminated the space to transcend an incredible display of light.
