Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

posted by on 15/04/2010

These are dope. Guns are not cool but bullets are (duh!), imagine carrying your university work in one.  Well that’s exactly what you can do with one of these. I’ll have to pass on purchasing one seeing as that I’ve manage to lose 3 USB sticks in the past 6 months. FML. These 2GB USB flash drives are now available from the Crooks & Castles online shop. Reload!

Throwback Thursday – Dr. Dre

posted by on 15/04/2010

Forgot about Dre? It’s been 9 years since Dr. Dre dropped Chronic 2001 and apparently he’s been working on the messianic ‘Detox‘ album ever since. Last week, we recieved official confirmation that his new single will be titled ‘Under Pressure‘ and it’ll feature none other than the Hov himself but major fail again when the song failed to drop on the day it was meant to, when will we ever hear music from this elusive Detox album? after the cut for some Dre classics.

Portobello Park Life

posted by on 15/04/2010

I don’t think I need to add many words for this one and I should be saving all the words for the 2500 word essay I’m writing. So I’ve decided to throw a few random photos that I captured yesterday on our Portobello adventures.  A few random shots of the area and most from our chillaxin‘ day at Holland Park  enjoying the weather. I tried my best to hide from the sun as I don’t want to get a tan. Should have brought my Rihanna umbrella. Photos on the flipside.

Marc Jacobs 'Zip It' High Top Sneakers

posted by on 14/04/2010

I’ve never been a fan of shoes with zips and studs etc… but these are nice! Someone said they would make me look like I had ‘Ethiopian legs’ because they are super high tops with a peeping tongue. The sneakers come in black premium leather, a logo patch embossed on the tongue, a two way wrap around zipper and a white sole. You can find these at SSENSE if your in the US.. these are defo on the NY list ($630 though)

Taiwanese Subo Gets The Boot

posted by on 14/04/2010

Lin Yu-Chun finally gets booted off the talent show ‘One Million Star’. You may know him as the Susan Boyle look-a-like who sang Whitney Houston’s ‘I will always love you’ that became a YouTube hit over night. With over four million views Lin managed to win over the rest of the world with his sublime singing but failed to impress the judges. Would you believe Lin is actually 24 years old and nicknamed ‘Little Fatty’ SMH!?

Eargasms

posted by on 14/04/2010

I think I’ve changed Eargasms onto a Wednesday thing now. Some of these tracks dropped mid-week last week so don’t call me late or anything as I’m still ahead of most of ya’ll. This first track is apparently an unreleased track from Keyshia Cole featuring Alicia Keys titled ‘Only With You’. I’ve listened to the song about 30 times and I have yet to hear Alicia’s vocals, so I think she’s the one playing the piano. The track is all lovey dovey but the airy vocals with the piano works so well. This song and many more after the cut.

Hummingbird Bakery

posted by on 14/04/2010

My friends have been hyping up this place for a whole minute now so I decided to check it out with my 2 friends Rachel and Mel. We headed to the renowned American bakery, Hummingbird Bakery in Notting Hill and it was pretty much love at first sight with their cupcakes. The place seemed classy, the choice of colours and fonts complimented each other well. Staff were really friendly whilst I decided which cupcakes to acquire. I decided to buy four cupcakes, 2 vanilla and 2 red velvet. They’re beyond delicious, it’s definitely gave me a food-gasm and a sugar high. Photos to make you drool after the cut.

Twitter Ad Anyone?

posted by on 13/04/2010

Twitter has announced it will be allowing adverts to resonate in our tweet feeds calling them ‘promotion tweets’. Starbucks, Sony Pictures and Best Buy have already purchased their ads so be prepared to be bombarded with more corporate mumbo jumbo.
