This series looks like it’s going to be majorly inspiring for me. Oprah Presents Master Class is an unique look into the brilliant minds of influential individuals we love, respect and admire. Each of these people are famous and hand picked by Oprah for their remarkable impacts on the world. First season of masters include Diane Sawyer, Jay-Z, Dr. Maya Angelou, Simon Cowell, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Lorne Michaels and Oprah herself. Peep the trailer on the flipside, I’ve already noted down some inspiring quotables from it. Props to Verse over at SC for this one.
I saved a lot of the better photographs from my trip to Greenwich for my LDN.365 series. This is definitely one of them, certainly one of my best thanks to the painted wall in the back. Ya’ll may recognise the painted wall from a fair few Hollywood blockbusters such as The Mummy, National Treasure and The Golden Compass. Definitely go check it out. More imagery from my Greenwich visit here.
2010 has come and gone and as the previous year drew to a close a whole host of people made lists of their favourites/Top 10’s from the year be it in music, TV or film. I personally find it to hard write top 10 lists so I thought I’d take the idea and put a different spin on it. Instead of listing my favourite songs I will highlight a few that caught my attention for one reason or another. 2010 has seen growth and maturity materialise in me and this has allowed me to appreciate things I never before would have done including music. Diversity is the keyword of 2010 in terms of where I’m at with music. The story continues after the cut.
Number (N)ine’s designer Takahiro Miyashita presents his 2010 Winter Collection for new label “The Soloist“. Entitled “Debut” the collection draws inspiration from the 19th century while putting a modern twist to the pieces. The collection consist of an array of sweaters, boots, blazers, and cardigans. To emphasize the 19th century feel Miyashita uses lots of suedes, gold/bronze details and patches on several items such as the blazers, vest and the boots. Another thing you notice is the heavy usage of dull colors which accentuate the old 19th century theme. With this label you can see it has less of an avant-garde vibe from what most Miyashita fans are use to seeing. Images after the cut.

I haven’t written any of the clichéd best of 2010 lists that you have been seeing in all types media this past week. I honestly should have but post-Christmas laziness got the better of me. These past 12 months have been great for me, I’ve learnt a lot about myself and others and finally found a direction in life. Now I just need to make it happen, put my head down for the remaining few months of university instead spending hours browsing the net trying to find things to post on here. 2011 is going to be even bigger and better. HAPPY NEW YEAR YA’LL. Hop on after the cut for some more of my ramblings.
Happy New Year! thank you all for the support in 2010, expect bigger and better things from the Y&Y family in the next year. I hope the past year was as good to you guys as it was to us! now I command you to go listen to this song, perfect way to start the year.
