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 […]

Kanye West's G.O.O.D Music Fridays – Week 1

posted by on 28/08/2010

I think it’s a dope idea, nothing beats a well fitted black suit. The Rosewood movement requires a sartorial flair but the initiative actually goes beyond fashion as it requires those involved to portray themselves in a grown-up and exemplary manner whilst in public. Basically to be a model citizen within the society.
