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 […]

Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook

posted by on 11/06/2012

Dell recently launched one of the lightest ultrabooks on the market, the XPS 13 with a 13 inch screen, solid state drive and an eye popping slimeline appearance has gone down a storm- our friends over at Dell sent us one to test out! Now… I know Dell products haven’t really identified as slick portable machines in the past but it seems the brand is determined to switch things up with this one (and others to come that I can’t talk about) *awkward silence* More after the break.

King Lear @ The Space Theatre

posted by on 11/05/2012

King Lear is the most powerful individual in the Kingdom looking to retire from his royal duties. In order for his Kingdom to thrive long after his reign, he takes it upon himself to determine who will gain the majority of his Estate. However, in order for King Lear to do so, he must see which of his three ‘devoted’ daughters is the most deserving. They must all pit against each other to declare which of the three loves him the most. Enraged by Cordelia, his most favoured daughter’s straightforward, non poetic response, he rewards both Regan and Goneril his Kingdom, but is this for the best?

Converse Block Party

posted by on 09/05/2012

On 29th April Tara, Derek and I headed to the graffiti-covered Old Vic Tunnels in Waterloo, central London, to party with Converse and much of the grime scene’s finest for a Y&Y day out. Alongside a music line-up boasting Wiley, Skepta and P-Money were a gang of talented skateboarders and graffiti artists. The night’s best bits were all captured through Derek’s lens, with words from myself and Tara (Tara’s words are in italic).

Photographer: Patrick Baldwin

A tale of love, defiance and adventure, the girl with the iron claws explores the lengths and breadths the youngest daughter of a king must take to find her true love… a bear, Valemon to be exact. This is the debut show from the theatre company The Wrong Crowd, a collaboration between writer/director Hannah Mulder and designer/puppet director Rachael Canning who ‘share a similar vision for inventive, joyful, provocative storytelling that revels in the wonder of live performances’.

Women of Troy | Lazarus Theatre Company

posted by on 11/04/2012

Following the dreadful fates of the male soldiers of Troy, Women of Troy shines a light on a nation of women who must band together to rebuild the foundations of their community. The very essence of the community was prominent throughout the piece which I felt was communicated brilliantly throughout.
