The Five at Five is a download of the best things to read, watch, shop, and get inspiration from. This week’s selections have been curated by the female members of our team at Appear Here.
Dominicana by Angie Cruz - just finished reading this, a story that highlights the realities of being a young, female immigrant. The way it’s written really lets you take a step into 15 year old Ana’s shoes as she moves from the Dominican Republic to New York with her new husband.
Emma, Product Manager
Devils on Sky Atlantic. It’s a financial thriller based on a book by Guido Maria Brera.
It’s about the inner workings of a top bank and uses real life events, like when the Greek economy crashed, how powerful the banks around the world are, and how they will do anything and everything to maintain power.
Helen, EA to CEO
I've been listening to FemTech Focus Podcast, with Dr. Brittany Barreto. It is a meaningfully provocative conversational series that brings FemTech experts - including doctors, scientists, inventors, and founders - on air to talk about the innovative technology, services, and products (collectively known as FemTech) that are improving women's health and wellness.
Teni, BI Data Engineer
Been eyeing (another) ring from Ella Bull. She’s an independent jeweller who handcrafts all her stuff from a small studio in Peckham. Each piece is one of a kind and made to order. I have two pieces so far and totally love them.
Aoife, Special Projects
Noshi accessory collars, a collection of unique pieces handcrafted from antique pure Japanese silk kimonos.
Helene, Head of Service
I'm watching and getting inspiration from Cassandra Bankson. She's a skincare expert, who advocates skincare as self care. She's super friendly and explains the science behind our skincare so clearly. And I attribute all my retinol/vitamin C knowledge to her!
