For a group of seemingly perfect schoolboys this appears to be the case as they crash land onto a desert island after being evacuated from a war ridden Britain. But will it be a bed of roses, or will the boys slowly realise that they have a lot of growing up to do?

Please Take One Step* | Book Review

posted by on 09/02/2012

A few weeks back, Yang and I attended a social media philanthropy event hosted by the Rainmaker Foundation at the Hub and one of the things handed out in the goody bag was this book written by the founder, Mike Dickson. I’ve got a reading list of over 5 books at the moment so there was no possible way I’d be reading it anytime soon so I decided to give it to my rather grown up 14 year old cousin to read. His sentence structure and vocabulary are far superior to mine already which is slightly embarrassing for me to admit but praise needs to be given where its due. Without further a do, hop on after the cut to read the review from my talented little cousin.

Jack & Jones – Knitted Jumper

posted by on 29/12/2011

See before this year, I never ever owned a propa’ winter coat. I’d just layer up to the max in the colder seasons: gloves, scarves, hats – the lot. You know how some guys boast about their extensive limited edition marvel-g-shock-casio-your-mum-insertNFLteam-collaboration ‘snapback/new era’ collections, you guys need to see my winter hat collection. At least 30 different types of wooly wonders and I keep adding more, strange addiction. However hats are just one part of the winter equation, the real statement piece has to be the knitwear. The final layer in the pile and it’s essential to have a few solid knits in the wardrobe. Especially for those lazy days where you can’t be bothered to iron your shirt! Throw a knit on it.

Original Penguin – The Outfit

posted by on 05/12/2011

We were approached by the good folk at Penguin to come down to their store, pick out an outfit and do what we do; shoot it for the site. In all honesty, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from the brand’s collection, all I had my eye on before arriving at the store was the Clondyke boot that I feature a few weeks ago. I headed to the store in hidden away in one of the corner’s of the Piazza, Covent Garden. I was pleasantly surprised by the range on offer inside, a beautifully curated collection of polos, jumpers, gillets, footwear and more.

H&M x Yin&Yang – Style Session

posted by on 03/11/2011

So last month, we were invited down to H&M‘s showroom for a style session. What does this entail you ask? Our task was pretty simple – to construct a look that we felt represented our personal style using H&M’s latest Divided collection. To be honest, when I got the email in my inbox about this opportunity, I actually thought it was a joke haha. So we went down, not sure what to expect as we haven’t done anything of the kind before. Sure we’ve done shoots but not a filmed interview/style session – I hate being on camera and hate hearing my own voice played back to me even more! However the results are pretty nice if I do say so myself – continues on the reverse.

Banana Tree Soho | Restaurant Review

posted by on 24/10/2011

First spotted this restaurant chain a few months ago in Angel, with a broke-ass waiting for student loan to drop budget – it was the best to place to go. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and price, this time we were invited to review the new branch of Banana Tree in Soho. Located right next to Byron and Wahaca – my favourite area for lunch after work, the area is filled with great restaurants. We were given £60 credit which is a LOT when you can get dinner for around £10 so we had to go for 3-course dinner + 2 drinks each. They don’t do desserts! More on the reverse.
