Honey Birdette is an Australian lingerie brand that has been taking the market by storm. The brand initially started out as just one store and today sells to not just people coming from within the country of Australia, but from around the world. The company has a growing audience in most major online marketplaces and has their products traveling to different parts of the globe. A good quantity of the audiences that come to the site to purchase their products come from parts of America and the United Kingdom, which is why when the company decided to embark on a mission for international expansion, these were the two locations that they focused on.
By analyzing the trends that their customers seem to exhibit, Honey Birdette saw it fit to release a website solely for their American audiences. By shifting their inventories to bases in the United States, they are now providing these customers with the lingerie that they want, without having to wait weeks for it to reach them from Australia. This is naturally a lot faster, thus giving their customers an incentive to buy their products more. Since the launch of their United States site, the brand has seen a lot of success, with their clients from the United States increasing immensely.
When it comes to the UK, the brand had a different idea in mind. Since their clients in the UK prefer a more personalized shopping experience, they saw it fit to open up stores in prime locations in the UK. Last year, the brand opened up their first store in Covent Garden, and two more stores within two months. The stores were a huge success since the locations of the stores were in the midst of prime shopping destinations in the country. Honey Birdette aims to open up at least forty more stores by the end of 2018 in different parts of the UK.

Talos Energy – Opening New Horizons with the First Successful Private Sector Oil Discovery in Mexico
On July 12, 2017, the first private sector, offshore oil well was drilled in the history of Mexico. This exploratory venture between primary operator Talos Energy, LLC and three other joint partners, announced that oil has been discovered from the efforts of their project, Zama-1. This historic well is situated in an ocean depth of 546 feet, sitting approximately 40 miles off the coastline of Port of Dos Bocas.
What makes this discovery even more encouraging is the joint efforts between Mexico and the United States. The President and Chief Executive Officer for Talos, Tim Duncan asserts this was a unified effort between his company and the two venture partners, Sierra Oil and Gas and Premier Oil.
This successful effort to find oil off the coast of Mexico was enhanced by the landmark 2014 energy reforms. The execution of these two production sharing contracts was the first such contract awarded by the Consortium in Mexico’s vast oil and natural gas reserves in nearly a century.
In May of this year, the well spud using the Ensco 8503. The Ensco 8503 is floating rig that is moored in place. There is currently a liner in place to secure the current reservoirs pending additional exploration.
There are potentially a vast number of future prospects in this region off the Mexican coast. These recent successful operations from a private sector entity will certainly spawn further exploration and enhance collaboration.
Talos will continue to employ their motivated efforts to seek new oil reserves by drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. An expansion in shallow water drilling off the coast of Mexico will only improve their prospects for more successful drills in the future. As North American countries strive to meet future energy needs, this is a welcome step in unlocking the vast reserves from Mexico.
