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 […]

Dr. Martens 2011 Spring/Summer Apparel Collection

posted by on 19/04/2011

I’ve only ever known Dr. Martens for their footwear so I was pleasantly surprised when I came across a lookbook for an apparel line. Little did I know that this lookbook was indeed a glimpse of what is to come in their inaugural collection of clothing.  Both men and women’s garments are offered and are both displayed in the preview. Take a look at what Dr. Martens have come up with for their first attempt at attire.

Shoulda Woulda Coulda

posted by on 19/04/2011

Missy Elliot is one of the most creative artists when its comes to music and videos but she has been missing from the game for quite some time now. She has been busy working on new material which we are believed to be hearing at some stage this year but nothing is set in stone as she has previously tried to deliver the new album ‘Block Party’ (name subject to change) a few years back. After all these false starts with the release of her new album people have been crying out for her and her team to get their act together and produce so more of that creativity that we know and love her for. After reminiscing over some of her previously released tracks I stumbled on a track from her Cookbook album which was one of my favourites. It wasn’t released for what ever reason however I believe it would have done well on urban radio formats. Check it out below.

309. Marylebone Road | LDN.365

posted by on 19/04/2011

I took this a few weeks back when my beloved left the country on maid of honor duties, she’s back now and my life is in order. I’m not being paid to write this, nor do I have a gun held to the back of my head haha. I quite like this photograph but I’ve made a big mistake with the editing, can anyone spot it? but I really like the rest of the photograph. Oh well.

T&F Slack Shoemakers 2011 Spring/Summer Collection

posted by on 19/04/2011

I would be lying if I said I had known about this brand before Hypebeast put me on them yesterday. T&F Slack Shoemakers is the brainchild of a husband-and-wife team Tim and Fiona Slack, who are dedicated to making modern classics. They started making shoes back in the 70s and are known for their unusual colour combinations which are definitely be seen in this new collection. The bold palettes are certainly an eyeful, the ones pictured above are somewhat toned down to the rest of them. The slate blue oxfords with the contrasting berry sole is the one I have my one. I can definitely see most of these being rocked with neutral toned down looks, bright colour footwear can set it off. Oh add that matching pocket square.

Matt Sartain's Misadventures

posted by on 18/04/2011

Gosh these photographers are killing me with the levitation photographs. Do you even need me to tell you what the photograph above reminds me of? Well if you really need me to tell you, I will…DRAGONBALLZ. The most epic anime of all time. San-Francisco based photographer Matt Sartain is an incredible storyteller, this photo series is evidence of his talent. Misadventures features scenes of interesting characters embarking on epic voyages through dreamy and fairytale-esque landscapes. All these misfits are trying to find a place where they belong. I simply love the styling, art direction, lighting, clouds. Basically I mean everything. It’s just perfect. Hop on after the cut to view his work.

308. Edgware Road Car Park | LDN.365

posted by on 18/04/2011

I was waiting around for my girlfriend yesterday as per usual, women take time to get ready. In the mean time, I decided to wander around Edgware Road area, the place is full of shisha places and Arab owned shops/restaurants. I majorly dislike Shisha, it doesn’t do anything for me! just blowing smoke out of a pipe, not fun or cool. However this view is cool, it reminds me of Kuwait. Edgware Road is like mid-town, just a stone’s throw away from Central but yet very suburb-y. Is that even a word!?

Dope Quote #7

posted by on 17/04/2011


What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Had a little play with some typography this morning to mock up this image above. Believe in yourself = JUST BE YOU. I have no time for the pretenders at these pretentious events I sometimes get invited to, I only like meeting people who are themselves. A lot of people don’t seem to have confidence in doing what they love, it’s a risk but if you believe in yourself, anything is possible. Belief makes things real. HAPPY SUNDAY!

Millions Like Us – Don't Let Go | Music Video

posted by on 17/04/2011

I don’t usually like songs like this, it’s a bit of Pop, D&B and Dubstep? It’s the latest single from Millions Like Us, a Brighton-based D&B/dubstep trio. They are the guys in the back of the taxi in the video, it’s the only part of the video that I didn’t like. It’s a little awkward to watch, the London scenes are dope though. Paying more attention to the music now, the beat drop is crazy. Hate to admit but the parts with the chick singing are weirdly infectious, check out the video on the reverse. Still don’t get why they used those weird furry hats!

Macro Kingdom By Clemens Wirth

posted by on 17/04/2011

Clemens Wirth (vimeo user) bought himself a Macro lens and decided to test it out and trust me, the results are wow-ing and also I’m a little bit in love with this. Would just like to commend him on how great the shots are along with the editing- the music is also very fitting. It’s amazing that these are just simple everyday scenarios that we don’t find significant however, captured here in this video it suddenly becomes fascinating. “Flying dust particles”… who gives a crap, I hate dust but I think It’s incredible how the camera so thoroughly captures these moments. There are three whole parts to this which you can view the first after the page break. Clemens shot these with the infamous Canon 5D Mark II and his lens: MP-E 65mm. Enjoy.
