      Shopped

      A True Story of Secret Shopping and Self-Discovery

      by Emily Stott

      ‘I headed alone for Knightsbridge – a strange choice for a skint teenager – and it was there that I fell in love for the first time. The dress was little, black and slightly frou-frou, and I knew on sight that it was the one.’ Ever wondered why you have three versions of the same top but want to buy another? Or why some shop mirrors are more flattering than others? And whether we really only wear 20 per cent of our wardrobe 80 per cent of the time? Emily Stott is passionate about high street fashion. Her Saturday morning shopping trips as a child led to jobs both on the shop floor and in the offices of upmarket stores. But it was while writing about fashion brands for magazines and simultaneously spying as a mystery shopper that she gained a whole new insight into fashion retail. Now a stylist, Emily Stott writes with warmth and wit on the pleasures of dressing up, the trials of growing up and learning how to shop for yourself. Full of insider knowledge, Shopped is a funny and engaging story about the pursuit of style. You’ll never shop in the same way again.

      The School of Badassery

      by Jenni Janakka

      Be the driver, not the passenger in life! How do you respond when somebody interrupts you in a meeting? When you are offered a lower salary than you expected? Or when you are being criticized? The School of Badassery starts off by asking: How can women take control of their skills, career and life? How can we be the driver rather than passenger in life? How can we be assertive, without putting anyone down? The School of Badassery is a fresh take on the formation of self-image. It teaches you to recognize your skill set and trust yourself. We are more than the stereotypical niches we squeeze ourselves and others into.

      Artículos de costumbres

      This is an annotated critical edition of Artículos de costumbres by the Romantic journalist Mariano José de Larra (1809-37), presented with a critical introduction, study guide, glossary and chronology. Larra is still one of the most widely studied Spanish Romantic authors, and his satire of customs and manners in articles such as El castellano viejo, Vuelva usted mañana and Nochebuena de 1836 offers an insight into nineteenth century Spanish culture, while probing issues that are still seen as defining of Spanish identity today. Artículos de costumbres, presented here with an extensive annotation that identifies references that have not been previously elucidated, is a central text in the Spanish canon, opening up questions about modern Spain and issues such as political revolution, class identities, social change and the inclusion of Spain within European modernity.
