Correct grammar AND a witty tone of voice – The biggest turn on, ever. Spare me the six pack, body oil and Al Green tunes, my Tinder profile would be all about Merriam Webster approved lingo and dates who know their shit, as opposed to not knowing they’re shit. If you can spin the keyboard […]
It’s safe to say the novelty of “you’ve got mail” has well and truly worn off. We’ve become desensitised, if not a little numb, to the pure magic of shooting a little message out into space and it landing on someone else’s screen. Now, our inboxes feel more like a burden, a chore. And then […]
The 2000s were a magical time. And by magical, I mean delightfully cringe-worthy. In hindsight, we probably should have realised that our butterfly clips and Ed Hardy shirts should have been filed along with cargo pants, flip phones and our MySpace profiles. These statement-making culture trends might have seemed like a good idea at the […]
The art of a successful brand collaboration is like a really comprehensive game of match-making. Sorry to break it to you (especially if you’ve just swiped right for the last time) but if you’re in the business of well, business, then there’s no escaping the constant search for the ideal partner. We’re big advocates of […]
When I tell people I run my own business I see their eyes light up. Like all of a sudden, I’m some hot-shot who constantly has a table reserved at the restaurant of the month and bathes in a bath of marble. As far as I can tell, a lot of people still go a […]
This is an excerpt from our Calling the Shots Ebook. Sometimes, I want to fake my own death and move to The Bahamas. I feel sluggish, lethargic and about as uninspired as a kid in a mortgage broker’s office. Creativity is a fickle thing. And we often feel the furthest from it at approximately 3:14pm […]
If there’s one activity I can really get behind, it’s fake sleeping. But if there’s two, manifesting comes a close second. I believe that; If I want to be a rocket scientist, I can be. If I want to beat Elon Musk at a game of sudoku, I can. If I want to create the […]
Now let’s agree on another thing from the get go, creating killer content takes time, perseverance and loads of gusto. It’s a long, hard road, and to be honest, one that has no final destination. In order to reap the benefits of killer content, you need to be creative, consistent and committed to the cause.
This is an excerpt from our Calling the Shots Ebook. We all have that one friend populating our Insta-feed with seriously perfect, immaculate and downright envy-inducing imagery. Whether it’s an Amalfi throwback, a play-by-play of outfit inspo or some snap-happy moments from a sunshine-filled Saturday, you can always count on them to curate a perfectly […]
Oprah sure is making the most of 2019. She’s already released a new book, is producing her own TV series (with no other than Prince Harry), delivered key-note speeches at world summits and celebrated 5 million downloads of her podcast. And whatsmore, it’s only May. Here I am with only one sock on, toast crumbs […]
Planet earth, our little blue rock. Home to over 7.5 billion human beings, 340 breeds of dogs, a million and one different types of milk (give or take), 7 wonders and yet sadly still, only one Chris Hemsworth… what’s with that? As almighty and powerful as the earth seems on paper, unfortunately, she’s a lot […]
Here at Smack Bang, staff hierarchy is about as welcome as a turd in a swimming pool. The thing is, we have a leadership system that works seamlessly, whilst being free of hierarchy and egos. It’s one that is inclusive and where ideas can come from any employee and be considered as worthy as those […]
If you’re anything like me you’ve probably spent the last few years writing tasks on fleeting pieces of paper or the odd post-it-note, which are now stuck to the bottom of someone else’s shoe. In the wake of my holiday-induced binge, 2019 started with two vows. The first, to finally get around to watching every […]
To the sour woman who yelled at me this morning because I didn’t pick up after my dog (who had done a wee…), this blog is for you. Last week I turned off my out-of-office autoresponder and sat down to my first day back at work after 5 months off. Before you tell me I’m […]
On any given day, there are meetings to attend, HR issues to deal with, never-ending emails to reply to, taxes to pay, supplies to order, unpaid invoices to follow up and insurances to update. Sorry, I was so bored typing that I just fell asleep.
If you were to come into our office around lunchtime, you’d soon realise our table talks nearly always revolve around the latest Netflix series that has been controlling our lives. I’m sure between all of us we could give you a detailed review on just about any documentary on there. This week, the talk of […]
