A few months back when RentMyItems.com was starting its second round of fundraising our Founder, Warren Heal, asked of James Caan, through the Evening Standard, how start-ups such as RentMyItems.com raised finance. The answer is now back and can be read from the link here.

If the longer, warmer and sunnier (sometimes) days of the last few weeks have made you desire holidays and time outdoors even more than usual, don’t worry. You are not the only one who this has happened to. Plus, Easter is nearly here, so there is not long to hold on for a few days off.
Whether you are planning to spend your days off at home or escape for a longer weekend, RentMyItems.com has got the solution for a cheap Easter break.

Did you all just experience the change in weather over the past week? It’s getting warm! Get the t-shirts, shorts and sandals out everybody, summer is here!
...Or maybe we are getting a bit too excited here? Possibly. Yes it’s getting warm, but who knows, it might even snow next week! It’s still lovely to start thinking about all your plans for the warmer weather and daydreaming about summer.

Apparently, it is one of those times of the year again. Articles upon articles about the latest trends in clothing style and designer looks have given it away quite clearly, so I am pretty sure most of you will be aware that it has been London’s turn in fashion weeks’ season. If not, you might instead know that the BAFTAs Ceremony, the Grammy Awards, the BRIT Awards and the Oscars are taking place in this period too, accompanied by the range of stunning evening dresses and suits flaunted on the red carpet. Anyhow, it is a fact that we are currently bombarded more than usual with images of fashion goddesses and gods, which we spend ages going through, rather than concentrating on coursework.

When Saturday mornings were dull and the UK was in a blip, the live TV show Multi-Coloured Swap Shop was launched to the nation, hosted by a radio DJ who would become the nation’s favourite – none other than Noel Edmonds. Each Saturday morning Noel and his bunch of fun-buddies would entice us all to swap things with each other – be it the latest toy that was more ‘past-it’ than ‘a must have’, or a hair-dryer that had been replaced and was now sitting on a shelf unused. The live TV show’s cornerstone was this Swaporama element which saw an outside broadcast from a different location throughout the UK where children (primarily!) could swap their belongings with others.

2011, the year that the world’s population hit 7 billion, just 12 years after hitting the 6 billion mark in 1999, and 24 years after hitting 5 billion in 1987. The world’s population has doubled since 1967, in a single generation. The U.N. projects that the world population will reach 8 billion by 2025, 10 billion by 2083. For now, China remains the most populous nation, with 1.34 billion people. In the past decade it added 73.9 million, more than the population of France or Thailand.
