Today's news of Apple becoming the world's most valuable consumer brand got me thinking: which brands/institutions do I love? Which ones became a big part of my life I couldn't live without (well I could but wouldn't want to). So here's my initial list, I'm sure I'll add to it as I go:
Marks & Spencer - for giving me free bottle of water with their delicious salads!
Louis Vuitton - for the best customer service among all the luxury goods stores I've ever been to.
Air France - for serving edible food in Economy.
Zara - for being my never-fail destination for all the fashion fixes!
Apple - for making iPod and iPhone - it created a need I didn't know I had!
Marie Claire - for being a mag I will read from cover to cover as opposed to flicking through, with articles actually stimulating some parts of my brain.
Chanel - for all the timeless classics Coco brought to this world!
Gilt.com - for being my biggest guilty pleasure! 5 pm GMT is when I log in to check the latest flash sales...It's sad - I know.
Mawi - for designing the most exquisite costume jewelry. You can never have too many Mawi pieces!
Facebook - for helping me stay in touch with all my nomadic friends around the world and giving me the courage to start my blog :)
subconsciously the above follow Maslov's hierarchy of needs: as in food comes first! Fashion second!
