Good information. Lucky me I discovered your site by chance (stumbleupon). I have book marked it for later!

hello!,I like your writing very much! percentage we keep in touch extra approximately your post on AOL? I require an expert on this house to solve my problem. May be that is you! Taking a look ahead to see you.


Hi there! This article couldn't be written much better! Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this information to him. Pretty sure he'll have a very good read. I appreciate you for sharing!

It's very straightforward to find out any topic on net as compared to textbooks, as I found this article at this web page.


I'm so with you here! But the rlealy rlealy bugging thing is .. When I do finally eek out the brief fleeting few hours of yummy mummy time . I god darn miss them all, all their bickering, background noise and constant demands ..AND to pack the final punch I feel so guilty about wanting the me time in the first place . That I end up cleaning their rooms or baking their fav cake or mending their fav toy that broke last week or making play dates for later. I need help I think, but guess I wouldn't have had the 3 little darlings if I hadn't wanted to shower all my devotion on them.Enjoy the peace, learn to listen to the trees and the quietness and before you know it school holidays will be round again x


Good post about coffee. I really like it. Please check out this blog for more info about coffee and coffee makers. Enjoy!

College Term Papers

Very nice write up. Easy to understand and straight to the point.


In a way Nespresso is a lifestyle brand with similar values and communication as Apple Inc. Focused on product and simple but classy design and experience/store.


so I guess that makes it use of celebrity with a bit more thought than usual. hard to compare to the sausalicious efforts of the likes of innocent. i think big multinationals need celebs as a security blankie. thanks for the post anyway anne.


Sure, using celebs per se is not 'strategy of the year'. But the campaign idea is not about George Clooney himself, but about quiproquos and misunderstanding between celeb, non - celeb and coffee. Clooney, because of his personality and film history (remember 'Michael clayton'...) serves this story well, better I'd say that Robin Williams or Brat Pitt would. In that sense, Clooney is part of the story, not just sizzle.

Patrick, Thanks for your comment, and feedback on the blog.

I must admit to being a big George fan... and the product/sausage is at least the co-star of the ad.

But over to Anne, the guest blogger: what do you think?!


come on avid I am a great fan of this blog, but using clooney to sell mass produced coffee is all sizzle!
