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 […]

221. Ed's Diner | LDN.365

posted by on 21/01/2011

If you’re American and missing your diners that you get back home then Ed’s Diner is the place to go for your gastric bypass burger. If you’re not American like me and feel like destroying body with excess fat intake then this is the place to go. In all fairness, the food is quite nice for ‘junk.’ Still though, you might want the meal here to be your ONLY meal of the day. There’s quite a few of this chain around, this one pictured above is behind the back of the big Boots near Bond Street.

Adidas SLVR 2011 Spring/Summer Collection

posted by on 20/01/2011

Honestly i’ve never really taken any notice of the Adidas SLVR line before but this new collection looks kinda alright. My eyes caught a few pieces in the set of pics that will follow that has got me thinking. Maybe its the way the pics were shot but I actually really like the collection. The approach for SLVR maintains its roots in sportswear with some casual garments in addition to more refined pieces. Peep the new 2011 Spring/Summer collection when you read on.

Erin Paula – Medley Covers (feat. Summer Breeze) Video

posted by on 20/01/2011

So beautiful. Her voice that is, I’m already taken so not allowed to speak of other Filipino women in such a way. This is probably the first ‘proper’ video from the YouTube sensation Erin Paula featuring fellow internet star Summer Breeze. By proper I mean shot on a SLR and not a webcam/iPhone! I can’t say I have heard of this guy before but his guitar skills are dope and voice compliments Erin’s really well.  Oh I could listen to her all day long #nopervo. I swear nearly all the Filipinos that I have met in the past few months can sing?!?! Not fair. Video on the flipside.

If you enjoyed the first documentary then you will enjoy this one too. Have a look!

Marni 2011 Fall Collection

posted by on 20/01/2011

On Wednesday I read Annabel’s post on her experience with a Topshop personal shopper (see post here) where she done a short interview with her personal shopper Rachel Lamb. In that interview Rachel states that one of her favourite brands at the moment is Marni. I had never heard of the brand before but as coincidences happen yesterday I stumbled across the brands 2011 Fall/Winter collection. Now obviously Rachel was talking from a female perspective but I thought I’d post the menswear collection anyway. Check it out on the flipside.

Take a look at the new lookbook which seems to have that smart casual vibe which is great if you want to look fresh at all times, refined but youthful at the same time. Lookbook after the cut.

Jason Magbanua – The Wedding Videographer

posted by on 19/01/2011

Meet wedding videographer, visual storyteller, star of the night Jason Magbanua. I can’t pronounce his name, sorry. I stumbled across a wedding video created by him on my Facebook video, I clicked it thinking it was a video my friend had made. The video featured mind blowing visuals, each frame beautifully shot and edited, feels like you’re watching a film. It’s that GOOD. I want Jason to shoot my wedding in 5 years time. I better start saving as his current fees are £2,000 per wedding + I’ve already found my photographer and videographer. Shame I haven’t found a bride. More after the cut.
