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 […]

Pain Passion Poetry - Four Seasons By Yemi Oyefuwa

You know when the smallest thing reminds you of someone you really don’t want to remind you?  A remote control reminds you of an inside joke between you and an ex lover and can set your emotions off? Sucks huh?

The Guardian 'Three Little Pigs' Advert 2012

posted by on 02/03/2012

In support of The Guardian’s Open Journalism concept, the paper has launched their first TV ad in many years- the ad was unearthed a few days ago. The title along with the theme suggests the generic fairytale idea that’s been done, re-done and is now tired, but that’s not the case. ‘Three Little Pigs’ is a depiction of how we (modern society) would cover the story of The Three Little Pigs in print and online. This includes, television, newspapers and of course social media. I love how the advert is so relevant to our time but still manages to capture the traditional elements of the story without selling too young AND it is hilarious, I mean this ad is just genius. Watch it after the break and let us know what you think!

Where Creativity Lives – Street Gallery

posted by on 02/03/2012

I stumbled across this open-air street gallery on the way to lunch in Goodge Street. Located right in the heart of Fitzrovia, “Where Creativity Loves” is an open air installment run and judged by Diemar/Noble Photography. The competition was open to anyone with a camera, both professionals and amateurs and from the hundreds of submissions – they’ve picked the best ones to be displayed around the HUGE building site for Fitzroy Place; a gigantic housing complex. What caught my eyes was the presentation of the photography, it’s so colourful and glossy – it’ll definitely catch anyone’s attention as they pass by. Why can’t they do this with all the ugly building sites? I noticed quite a few people stop and stare at the images, most intriguing was one man who looked through the gap in one of the photographs. Hop on after the cut to see more images.

Yin Eats: Chicken Caeser & Bacon On Artisan

posted by on 01/03/2012

It’s been a while! I am SLACKING. Work has been a lot more hectic recently, spreading myself over a few more accounts and projects which means lunches have been lazy or non-existent. All of you must have THAT one place/piece of food that you go for when you can’t be bothered to walk an extra mile to find proper lunch, well this is mine. I’ve had this baguette at least 30 times in the past 6 months. Hop on after the cut.

An Extra Day To #MakeItCount

posted by on 01/03/2012

A day that comes around once every four years? You best believe Nike were gonna shut LDN town down & #MakeItCount. The scene was set, as the sun followed suit, Southbank became the working athletes home. Basketball courts for the dunkers, a sweet 5k for all the run clubs & for me, a spot in the media pod of the London Eye.

Throwback Thursday

posted by on 01/03/2012

Glad to be back on this post! This throwback isn’t a proper ‘throwback‘ for me as I only actually came across this 70′s track in the last decade. Heck, I doubt my family were even listening to much English music back then! I ended up purchasing the song off iTunes a few years back as soon as I watched the film; the infectious hook and THAT guitar solo – damn. You know what song I’m talking about, hop on after the cut to listen. Baby come back…
