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 […]

Symmetry By Everynone

posted by on 30/04/2011

Everynone creative agency teamed up RadioLab to create this incredible video showcasing the world’s deep symmetries. This is easily one of the most well put together videos I have ever come across, it’s striking. Everynone plays with our yearning needs for balance and reveals how beautifully imperfect some of the symmetrical matches can be. I’m in awe, it’s so simple but amazing? Watch it on the reverse. I geeked out and embedded both youtube and vimeo videos.

320. Cyprus Docklands – River Thames | LDN.365

posted by on 30/04/2011

Outside UEL‘s docklands campus. I took this on Wednesday, spent most of Thursday night/Friday morning up in the library here. Fortunately I slept through whole royal wedding kerfuffle but have felt like sh*t the whole day due to the lack of sleep. Really should put more effort into this post but I have a 10,000 word dissertation to write. It’s getting real now. May 19th.

ASOS Canvas Backpack

posted by on 30/04/2011

During our overnight library visit I took numerous breaks which resulted in me window shopping online and I came across these bags on asos that I think are quite cool. Quite simply named the ‘ASOS canvas backback‘ they’re available in three colours: mustard, khaki and black- khaki featured in the leading photo for this post is also my preferred colour. The stylish rucksack is made from canvas material, featuring outer cargo pockets, leather look straps with buckle fastenings, a drawstring tie to the top and adjustable shoulder strap and it’s only £35. They look good but I wonder about quality… click on the bags after the cut for more info.

COMPETITION: Win A Meal For 2 At Wahaca, Covent Garden

posted by on 30/04/2011

Wahaca was one of the first restaurant reviews we conducted last year and still my favourite one of them all. I think I’ve been to Wahaca about 20 times since, their chicken tinga burrito is somewhat heavenly. I can never say no to good food! and that’s what they offer, GOOD FOOD. It’s my easily my favourite Mexican restaurant in London. We’ve teamed up with them to offer ya’ll a chance to win a MEAL FOR TWO and a round of margaritas at their Covent Garden restaurant. All you have to do is answer a simple question on the reverse.

The Royal Wedding: King's Speech Freestyle + Beatbox

posted by on 29/04/2011

All those that follow me on Twitter will know that I’m not a fan of this Royal Wedding malarkey and this will probably be the ONLY post on the topic unless the ‘Royal’ Family decide to come out all GQ‘d. Then I might just have to do an outfit breakdown/style post on it. Our friends over at Unruly Media have teamed up with Grey London Films to create this funny message for the future King & Queen. It’s definitely one of a kind! Stig’s rhyming and wordplay has always been hilarious, do you remember the way he dissed Asher D at Jumpoff a few years ago? Killa Kela kills it with the wedding themed beatboxing. Hop on after the cut for the video.

EcoCentric | The Home of Eco Chic

As an Interior Design student, it’s important to know how design decisions can have an impact on the environment. It’s not just about making a space look pretty, but more about providing a space that will provide a positive effect on people, the built environment and nature. I’ve recently become part of the Sponge team, which actively works towards promoting awareness of sustainable design, and last week Earth Day reminded everyone the importance of taking care of our environment and how we can all do our part. Have a look at EcoCentric which offers a range of beautifully designed environmentally friendly products and presents opportunities through good design to reduce your carbon footprint. Particularly fond of this Cork iPad Sleeve and the Grow Your Own range.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Trailer + Perks Of Being A Wallflower

posted by on 29/04/2011


Take over Isadora

Nothing like waking up after a good night’s sleep and the gorgeous morning sun kissing your skin through your window. Sigh. What makes it an even better morning is waking up to all the media news! First major topic that’s been blasting the headlines early this morning is the recent trailer release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 or as the French would say it deux! Now I must say I’m not particularly a fan of the Harry Potter movie series, mostly because I feel the series started going downhill after the third movie.

319. Lincoln's Inn Fields | LDN.365

posted by on 29/04/2011

Any of you guys watch/watched American show The Wire? These buildings reminded me of some of the scenes on that show. I think it’s because of the fact they are terraced like the run down buildings featured on the show. Never walked down this area behind Holborn Station till the other day, there’s a nice square in the middle. Check it out.

Throwback Thursday

posted by on 28/04/2011

Today’s introduction to this week’s Throwback Thursday is going to be short and sweet, mainly due to the fact that i’m really tired and my eyes are closing as i write this. This week’s song is taken from Deborah Cox‘s sophomore album One Wish, released in 1998. ‘Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here’ is one of those classic slow jams that can be played for many many years to come.

Jason Bell's Cinematic Celebrity Portraits

posted by on 28/04/2011

Wow. All of these images look like screen captures from films. London-born photographer Jason Bell takes photographs as if he was director, each of the photographs look so dramatic and filled with purpose and intent. I can spend minutes staring at each image trying to figure out the story. He’s definitely one of the UK‘s most renowned portrait photographers and you can definitely see why in these following images. One can only dream to be as good as him one day. To top it off he actually studied politics, philosophy and economics at Oxford University before starting his photography career. Who said creative types can’t be academics? Dope. Check out the rest on the reverse.
