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 […]

SOKARNO – COMING UP FOR AIR

posted by on 31/07/2015

While paying a visit to Japan late last year, I had the pleasure of meeting those behind Sydney based best paper writing service brand Sokarno. The brand focuses on high quality garments made in limited numbers giving a level of exclusivity to each piece. Amongst a sea of brands attempting to gain attention for out there patterns and cuts, Sokarno creates timeless but modern pieces with its heart in real quality, which starts at the design stage and moves its way into the fabrics and finishes. Even their packaging screams, “you’ve just bought something special!” The latest collection drops on the 1st August and you can see more of it after the cut!

In Residence: “Rose Uniacke” by Matthew Donaldson

posted by on 29/07/2015

All over the world there are beautiful gems hidden, some more hidden then others, some very personal and private. The home is, in an ideal world, the most personal and private of spaces, a safe and comfortable place. Who knows what beauty lay behind the doors of homes, especially in a city as diverse and rich (not necessarily financially) as London. I can’t help but appreciate the artistry behind the interior design in Rose Uniacke’s home, her supreme attention to detail is a thing of wonder in this 19th century Georgian home, which is full of heart and soul. As if I didn’t already, I’ll now be wondering even more what’s behind the doors of mysterious London homes as I walk the streets. Catch the video after the cut.

EYLENDA – ICELAND 4K

posted by on 28/07/2015

BEWARE – The following video may melt your eyes. You have been warned. Believe it or not, this stunning video was shot by two Audiovisual Media students from Germany for a film project they were set over the semester. Over 14 days they managed to capture this captivating footage, their aim they say, “was to capture the stunning landscape and wildlife to take you on a journey through this magical island.” Mission accomplished. My only problem is having such slow broadband that it’s taken me about an hour to watch, an hour well spent though, you’ve got to watch it in full 4K! Video after the cut.

First Converse Chuck Taylor update in 98 years

posted by on 25/07/2015

For the first time in almost a one hundred years, the iconic Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars have undergone a redesign. The famous design hasn’t changed dramatically, rather it’s been brought into the 21st century. While I’ve never found the All Star particularly uncomfortable, the main change by its Nike owners is to the technicalities of the shoe which aim to make it more comfortable, in the process they’ll see a slight price increase too. Check out the redesign after the cut.

The Relentless Pursuit | Yoji Tokuyoshi

posted by on 25/06/2015

This is the type of content we love to see brands produce. It’s beautifully made, has real substance and doesn’t force a product down your throat. Not only is Yoji Tokuyoshi’s story of moving from Japan to Italy and developing into a master of his craft captivating, it is also very similar to the story of Red Wing Heritage and it’s development. It’s easy to see why they chose to tell it, his passion for quality and hard work is a true reflection of the brands personal ethos. We produced a feature on the brand a couple of months ago, so you already know we’re big fans! Check out the video after the cut.

See What Others Do Not – #WingIt for the Weekend

posted by on 21/06/2015

Don’t go to the Louvre, forget the Champs-Élysées and definitely ignore the Eiffel Tower. Ok, I’m exaggerating, however there’s definitely far more to this stunning city than these iconic landmarks. They’re staggered with history and beauty, and they’re most certainly worth a visit but don’t let them consume all your time, the rest of Paris is just as wonderful and seeing it will go hand in hand with your new flair for being more spontaneous.

Be More Spontaneous – #WingIt for the Weekend

posted by on 21/06/2015

I’m going to order my meal in another language; I’m going to eat something I’ve never eaten before; I’m going to pick something from the menu that I can’t read or translate; I’m going to point to something someone else is eating and say I want that! Or here’s a game someone told me about recently, one person picks an area in a city, the other picks a street, when you arrive you have to find somewhere to eat on that street. Less decisions to make and a little spontaneity added to lunch. Following yesterdays post on How To Travel Last Minute are some little tricks for being spontaneous while you travel. More after the cut.

How to Travel Last Minute – #WingIt For the Weekend

posted by on 20/06/2015

A good traveller has no fixed plans, he is not intent on arriving.” For me, travelling with as little planned as possible is the most fulfilling and exciting way to travel. Living for a weekend, a few weeks or a year and never knowing what’s around the next corner is an adventure that can’t be replicated. Serendipitous pit stops span the potentially endless journey, with unlimited opportunities to meet the nicest, wackiest and most interesting people, lifetime friends are guaranteed, fleeting romances are likely. And despite preconceptions, it’s easy! So when Booking.com and Time Out challenged us to wing it this weekend, I jumped at their offer. The story so far and travel tips after the cut.

Climbing The Worlds Second Tallest Building

posted by on 11/05/2015

660 metres above the Earth’s surface. This is how high two men, without safety equipment, climbed to the top of the Shenzhen Centre in China. The building is currently under construction but will be the second tallest building in the world upon completion. Scaling the building however wasn’t enough for the daredevils who continued to climb the cranes being used to construct the tower. The On The Roofs clan are well known for their sweat inducing videos and this is no different, it’s racked up on over a million views in two days, check it out after the cut.
