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 […]

Nerds galore! I’ve been watching DC and Marvel animated movies since Comic-Con started last week, it’s my way of being there in ‘spirit’. Marvel unveiled the Avengers cast and a few trailers to upcoming movies. Most of which haven’t surfaced online till now, peep the trailer for the norse-god based film Thor after the cut.

Dead Giraffe Clothing

posted by on 30/07/2010

Remember Jay? my brother from a white mother, well he’s spent the past few months working hard on his clothing company Dead Giraffe. As you may already know, Jay is a post emo-scene kid – you know the type who rocked his sister’s jeans. Well he’s grown up and switched up his style a fair bit to create a brand that caters for ‘streetwear/skater kid, cross over kinda vibe’ – his words. The site launches at midnight on his birthday (and mine!). Photos and more insight into the brand after the cut.

The Gold Mine Vintage Superstore Opens August 1st

posted by on 30/07/2010

See I’m not that much into vintage, I’ve always been a bit snobby when it comes to wearing 2nd hand clothing unless they were family hand downs from in my childhood. In recent years, the vintage hype has boomed and everyone has been purchasing vintage pieces from the 50s-90s because you know fashion tends to recycle itself. I think it’s mainly due to the recession! Shop Dutty founders have decided to launch The Gold Mine – a new vintage pop-up store for the folks of Bristol. More details after the cut.

‎45. Oxford Circus Diagonal Crossing | LDN.365

posted by on 29/07/2010

I have a love/hate relationship with this part of London. I’m quite materialistic, I love fashion so I do love shopping. There is no better place to do that in London other than in and around Oxford Circus but what I hate about it is the traffic. Human traffic/congestion on the pavement, way too many tourists clogging up the area. It’s like ‘move bitch get outta my way’ as I’m trying to get my shop on. That’s the newly opened diagonal crossing pictured above, it confused me at the start.

Tron x Adidas Sneakers Preview

posted by on 29/07/2010

All the lucky nerds who attended Comic-Con last week got a chance to immerse themselves in their comic book memorabilia and movie culture. I saw these posted on various sites last week but waited for a better photo (yes, I’m picky with photo quality). They are the upcoming TRON x adidas Collection and both these sneakers light up. As a child may parents never bought me LA Gear kicks so I think I’ll buy myself a pair of these.  I think it’s a pretty dope idea to partner with movies, remember the Hell Boy collaboration. More photos after the cut.

Step Up 3D Movie + Soundtrack Review

posted by on 29/07/2010

Umm. I don’t quite know where to begin, we were invited for an early screening of Step Up 3D by Atlantic Records. I loved loved the previous 2 films in the series as I’m a big fan of dance films. One thing people need to realise about dance films is that you’re going to watch the film for the dancing not for the Oscar award winning storyline. It was very much the same story for this movie.

Estelle 'Fall In Love' Video

posted by on 29/07/2010

Wasn’t Long ago that Estelle dropped her first ever mixtape which was quite cool, yesterday she premiered her video for ‘Fall In Love‘.  There are two videos, one featuring Nas and the other featuring John Legend; both videos are pretty similar but I prefer the one with John Legend just because I think him and Estelle work better together where they have a similar sound. I have always preferred Estelle’s music from her ‘Shine‘ album over her new stuff but this a nice track , I heard it on the mixtape and liked it but didn’t think it was a song for release. Her next studio album ‘All of Me‘ is set to be released very soon this year and its supposed to show us all the different types of music that Estelle is capable of putting out so it should be good. Anyways, here are the videos for “Fall in Love”

Drake – Better Than Good Enough Documentary

posted by on 29/07/2010

I’m very late with this documentary, I actually overlooked it when it first came out as I was too busy listening to his debut album ‘Thank Me Later’. For the past few weeks I’ve been dual screening my Macbook Pro so I tend to watch something on one screen while I work on the other. So a few days ago, I decided to give the Drake documentary a chance; I was surprised by how real he is and how much I could relate to him. I’ve gained even more respect for him after watching this, I suggest ya’ll peep the videos after the cut.

Alexandra Estevez

posted by on 29/07/2010

I have an odd taste in females, in fact I don’t actually have a particular type. Although it’s fair to say I adore all beautiful woman and that’s where  Alexandra Estevez comes in, I came across her on another blog the other day. So I took to Google (not Images!) to find out more about her and what she does. She’s a New York-native who has her hand in modelling, promoter, graffiti enthusiast and a tattoo fiend. She goes by the name of Inked Girl of NYC. More photos after the cut.
