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 […]

New Balance Spring/Summer 2015 996 MRL

posted by on 11/02/2015

It’s about time I got some new New Balance‘s, the only pair I own are a size too small. I’m loving the two tone/colour split thing these have going on and red just happens to be one of my favourite footwear colours. I dress in a way that suits my lifestyle, so any footwear I can wear to the gym in the morning and then for the rest of the day while working is ideal for me. Find out where you can buy these after the cut.

Levi’s Line 8 | Shoreditch Pop-Up Store

posted by on 11/02/2015

Iconic denim brand Levi’s is celebrating the launch of it’s new Line 8 Spring/Summer 2015 collection by opening a pop-up on Charlotte Road in Shoreditch, the store sits rather close to another couple of notable denim makers and will be located there for five months. The pieces are wonderfully minimalist and, as expected from such veterans in the denim game, high quality (I’m sure they won’t tear at the crotch like my Cheap Monday’s recently did). Nip down and invest in something that’ll last you for years, you won’t regret it!

February Fog

posted by on 11/02/2015

A beautiful little piece of film by filmmaker Billy Perry as he shares some stunning woodland visuals shot during the cold and foggy month of February. I originally followed this fellow a good few years ago for his Call of Duty videos (when that was a thing) but he’s moved onto better and far more creative projects that are always a wonder to watch. The atmosphere in this piece is fantastical but eerie all at the same time, check it out after the cut.

Ruffians Barbers – Covent Garden

posted by on 10/02/2015

Hair is something a man needs to take care of, and London is no stranger to barbers that understand this. When the £5-10 haircuts from your local bloke aren’t doing the job, there’s plenty of options to get a better experience and get your hair cut by someone who takes their time. With that in mind, I jumped at the opportunity when we recently got invited to get a cut at Ruffians barbers courtesy of their collaboration with Jura whisky for Burns Night weekend. I sipped some fantastic whisky and got myself a tidy up. Read on to see my thoughts on one of the best new(ish) barber shops around town.

Music Video | Frett – Silent Alarm

posted by on 10/02/2015

To be honest, I wasn’t aware of Frett until seeing this video, I’m just not that hip. However they give me a bit of a Warpaint vibe and I love Warpaint. The video screams with emotion and transitions between a variety of contrasting scenes, I’m yet to get my head around it completely but it definitely caught my attention. With that said, I’ll let you make your own mind up after the cut!

Tomer Ifrah | Moscow Metro Photography Project

posted by on 10/02/2015

I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve tried to take photos on the London underground or even just in crowded places and ended up with nothing even close to impressive. In this project Tomer Ifrah manages to incorporate large crowds into his work in a way that engages you and creates multiples points of interest rather than just cluttering the frame. The Moscow Metro being his location of choice, Ifrah captures a gloomy colour palette and juxtaposes stillness and movement effectively. I guess it’s time to grab my SLR and head back underground, more after the cut.

Straight Outta Compton | The N.W.A. Biopic Official Trailer

posted by on 09/02/2015

Here’s a film trailer to get the hip-hop heads excited. In fact, it’s a trailer to get anyone excited. Straight Outta Compton is an epic new biopic on the story of LEGENDARY rap group N.W.A. Originating from Compton, California, the rap group formed the foundations of West-coast hip-hop. While not everyone is a fan, there is no denying that N.W.A. were one of, if not the, most important rap groups ever. Controversy and politics were always at the forefront of their existence, and is what made them so significant. This biopic looks to focus on that, and tell the story of these history makers. Watch the trailer after the cut. This looks set to be DOPE.

Drive – The Quadrant System

posted by on 09/02/2015

If you haven’t seen Drive, then shame on you! If you haven’t heard the Drive Soundtrack, then double shame on you! If you haven’t heard of the quadrant system however then you’ll be forgiven. The concept involves breaking a frame down into four section (top, bottom, left and right) and utilising those four areas to different effective within a frame. The concept is quite simple but in this breakdown by Tony Zhou you’ll see just how impressive it can be when analysed. Things like this make me want to get into film making! Video after the cut.

Help Write My Paper

Hot Foods Maintain hot foods at 140-degrees Fahrenheit to reduce the probability of bacterial growth ; chafing dishes using a heat resource underneath, slow-cookers or heating trays all can do the trick. Deviled Eggs. For greater – tasting mushrooms, pre cook them marginally, then load them and re-heat. Grapes. Nuts. Strive pimento and cheese distributed, cream-cheese spread and a trout or a cheese-ball made out of cream-cheese, blue cheese and cheddar.

Within this economy an edge is needed by you’ll.

The Kooples Sport | Spring/Summer 2015 Lookbook

posted by on 08/02/2015

We’re all aware of the Sports Luxe trend that has gained steam over the last couple of years, who’d have thought slim jogging bottoms and a shirt would ever be a viable combo. The Kooples Sport however are breaking new ground with this latest collection that I’m going to label Sports Grunge, I just made that up and it probably won’t catch on but check out the lookbook and I think you’ll see where I’m coming from. The skater and biker model are used to display leather sportswear, as well as baggy denim and unmistakable skater shoes, while the well known Kooples aesthetic remains. More after the cut!
