The Weekly Edition - Issue 4

26 November, 2017

So it's finally happened, I've officially become a Londoner. It's been a long time coming, but I've finally reached the objective of spending my twenties living and working in the city. Things are looking up and I'm really excited about the future. Everything's coming up, Milhouse.

I spent the first weekend in my new apartment without broadband (hence the last posting), so I decided to explore some parts of the city I hadn't been to yet - starting by picking up a copy of Cereal Magazine's London Guide.

From this guide, I found a selection of great places, most notably Daunt Books, an independent bookseller with a beautiful interior, and Workshop Coffee.

Highlights

Around the Web

  • Monzo announce a new feature, Pots, a lightweight money-saving system direct in the banking app that allows you to put money aside for various different things. As someone who often struggles to save money, this new feature looks like an awesome way to help manage funds a little easier.

  • Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has been released on iOS and Android. This game is an old favourite of mine from the Nintendo DS days, and looks to be a perfect way to distract myself from all the political noise.

  • The Design Directory, a growing directory of designers & studios producing amazing stuff.

  • Mozilla have released the latest version of Firefox, called Quantum, with a gorgeous new design and a powerful, new engine to create a better browsing experience. After playing around with it for a couple days, I'm still considering switching my primary browser from Chrome.
