If you’re looking for great, affordable denim this Spring (which you are) then look no further than Uniqlo. The brand from Japan has hit us all in the face once again with a superb lineup of jeans and denim shirts. Great fits, great styles, great quality. Uniqlo have made selvedge more comfortable than ever, working hard on a brand new stretchy fabric that means you can look effortlessly cool in comfortable jeans that didn’t hurt the bank. And when I say that, I mean it. These beauties will set you back a mere £35. For men’s jeans these days, that is nothing. I got my hands on the slim fit dark selvedge (it’s not everyday skinny jeans) and they are wonderful. Check out some styles after the cut and be sure to pick up a pair in store.

American Shokunin | An American Bonsai Master

posted by on 25/02/2015

“Shokunin (Sho-koo-neen) is a Japanese word used to describe an individual that aspires to become a master in their particular craft or art form,” writes filmmaker Ryan Bush. Which is precisely what this film is about. I never thought it possible for me to be captivated by a man describing his love of Bonsai but his passion is just incredible and seeing someone take the time to truly master an art of any form is inspiring. Check out the video after the cut.

Le Gouffre | A Short Film by Lightning Boy Studio

posted by on 23/02/2015

Le Gouffre (“The Gulf”) is an inspiring tale about friendship, sacrifice and conquering the impossible. It is a beautifully animated short film by Carl Beauchemin, Thomas Chrétien, and David Forest at Lightning Boy Studio, telling the tale of two friends forced to build a bridge to cross a canyon on their outdoor adventure. They take on the challenge, and what follows is a wonderful tale. A story of building a bridge has never been so moving. Added to the fact that the film was funded through kickstarter, where they managed to raise almost five times their original goal. I don’t want to give away anymore, just watch the film after the cut.

iOS Game | Alto’s Adventure

posted by on 22/02/2015

We do like to post a bit of everything on the blog. As a source of daily inspiration, that should really know no limits. With that being said, I thought I’d share a brilliant game I have stumbled across on my iPad. Is this the most beautiful iOS game ever? Potentially. Alto’s Adventure is a new game on iOS that is both visually stunning and great fun to play. The game is a snowboarding adventure presented in amazing visuals, as you slide, jump and backflip your way down the never-ending mountain collecting your Lama, coins and other boosts. The game mechanism is similar to many others out there, but what sets Alto’s Adventure apart is the captivating graphics and accompanying audio. You’ll be playing all day. Check out a video after the cut and download from the iOS store for a mere £1.49.
