Shoot I assisted on for Fault magazine with Yasmin a while ago. First published work, Woop Woop!! Would have been great if I'd been credited too! But such is life.

Redeux: Part 2

07 October, 2011

It's that time of year again, I'm back at Uni so that means an actual valid excuse for the lack of posts, once again I'm in a house with no internet for at least another two weeks and I can't guarantee that once it's all sorted that I'll actually post often but in the meanwhile I've got a few things to tide you over with.

Many, many moons ago I assisted  the styling on the The Thirst's video shoot for 'Damn Girl', if you don't know who they are, they're an amazingly talented rock band from Brixton who in their short career have toured with the Rolling Stones and the Libertines to name the least. The shoot was probably the longest day of my life, 8am- 5am the next morning but was actually kind of fun, copious amounts of alcohol and ridiculously cool people.  The video actually came out a while ago but have just got around to posting it now shame on me.

And speaking of the Thirst, they're also performing at Supa Dupa Fly at the Jazz Cafe next week Friday with Shadez the Misfit.

Once you've done that, check out the interview I did with Professor Green over at my second digital home; theCool, another ridiculously cool guy who dealt with my hastily made up question like a pro and gave some great responses.

Thats should hopefully be enough to tide you guys till the next time I rear my head round these parts.


Picture Perfect

18 August, 2011

I've realised I rarely show you guys what I get up to, mostly because it either ends up on theCool or I never remember to bring my camera but I'm slowly trying to remedy that. The past week I've actually been kinda busy, on Monday me & Obui passed through Margin and meet loads of amazing brands, the recap full recap can be found here and here but for now just check out look at the pretty pictures and enjoy.

All We Need Is Lights by Diaghe


Here's a sneak preview of a shoot I styled in another disused confectionary factory, this time it was a biscuit factory with the legend that is @KidsofGrime and the super talented Lungi.

Every Teardrop is A Waterfall

I've been in love with this song ever since I luckily won tickets to see them perform at the iTunes festival last week. The show was amazzzinnggggg, I've never been to a rock/indie show before so this was a great way to break my indie show virginity.

The song it's self is so sick, it sounds 100x times better live, the band really get into it and give it their all especially Chris Martin, you can't tell me he doesn't look like he's about to spit out a sick 16 when he's performing this song. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a recording of it but I did get some very crappy, blurry pictures  of what I can promise you is actually Chris Martin and not just some random.

Motel Sample Sale

25 July, 2011

What else needs to be said, get your self down there this Saturday, items start from £5, free drinks, one-off specials...perfect. But if you're not able to make it you can always check out the Motel site, their sale is still ongoing and you can still get yourself a few bargins.

Grand Turino

03 July, 2011

Ever since my Ticks  broke and resigned themselves to shoe heaven, I've been on the lookout for some suitable replacements and I think the Turino may just be it, yes they are technically the same shoe but with zippers instead of tacks and a closed front but that's the beauty of them, they're so similar to what we've sen before, yet so different.

I can't believe bloggers haven't been all over these like they were with the Ticks, I guess they're all still caught up with Lita Fever to notice them which is great because it means they're now on sale with 30% off at Revole.   Result!

Dime gone Rogue

06 June, 2011

My favourtie streetwear brand, Dimepeice are doing another one of their epic sales, this time to mark Memorial Weekend the're giving us up to 50% off on selected items. As well as that they've just released their first ever menswear item the Homme  Boy tee, love it!

25 May, 2011

First thoughts of the collection was 'meh' but as it went on I found myself oddly excited about the Spanish Rivera inspired show. It managed to have a look for every occasion, with every possible possible pattern, texture and embellishment thrown in for luck; sequins, feathers, lace, embroidery, ruffles and more, an all-inclusive collection all around.

I absolutely  loved Gucci's collection, compared to De La Renta's overwhelming  63 piece collection, Guccis's short but sweet 7 look collection was a welcome change. Filled with chic, simple cuts and colours; nudes, Golds, Sequins, and semi-masculine tailoring, Gucci managed to tick every single box with swift precision.

Vogue Experience V

After hugely successful events in Italy and Rome, Vogue Italia are holding the first London edition of their Vogue Experience sessions,  a unique and unmissable opportunity where young and emerging designers, stylists, photographers and creatives are able to meet up with fashion's most influential.

This time you'll be able to meet up with Franca Sozzani, Vogue Italia Editor-In-Cheif and Lisa Armstrong, Fashion Editor at The Times for some one-on-one time to show them your portfolio or simply to ask them a few questions in a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I've already signed up for one of the slots, even though I have no idea what I'm going to ask, it was just to good of an opportunity to miss out on so make sure you do the same before it's too late.

The Wanderer Returns

24 May, 2011

Taken by G.S

Good news everyone, I've finally been reunited with the love of my laptop. It's back with a new depressingly empty hardrive itching to be filled. So now I've got nothing stopping me updating this thing more often, expect loads more to come.


Update x3

18 April, 2011

Hey everyone, it's that time of the month again, me apologising for not updating and promising that I'll be back soon, but this time I actually will I PROMISE!!!!!!!!!!!!! My laptop's still, still in MIA which is proper annoying since there's been loadddss of exciting stuff happening the past couple of months which I've been lucky enough to have been involved with (all down the the amazing Abuk Joseph) that I've been literally itching to share with you guys. But they'll soon come, don't worry.


Until then, all you Grime heads out there,  make sure you pass through the Y'OH x Kids of Grime exhibition, they're celebrating the launch of Y'OH's debut collection 'Heads Ain't Ready', I tagged along for the shooting of the press pics and they look sick and I know the night's gonna be even better.

Update, kinda

07 March, 2011

So it's March and as you can see there are no new posts, and unfortunately there probably won't be any for a while. I broke my laptop a couple of days after I first wrote the last post and I'm still in the middle of getting it sorted so it looks like I won't be back again till the end of March at the earliest :-(

In the meanwhile, just thought I'd show some pictures from a shoot I helped out Obui  with a couple of few days ago, it was the first time I've actually remembered to bring a camera to a shoot I've been assisting on so I had to share.

The quality of the pictures are kinda wack because I just ended up using my phone but hopefully it gives you an idea of the amazing-ness we managed to capture day. To be honest I 'm sure I didn't really help much on the day but it was fun to be a part of it, I just can't wait to see the finished product, I know they're going to look amazing!

Hopefully these should be enough to hold you over till I'm back.

See you soon

 Model: Rhianna Bishop
Styling: Obui Amaech & Olivia Sykes & Me

 So I've gotten to the end of this and realised that this has actually turned into a proper post, it was just supposed to be a couple of words! But at least it's given you guys an idea of what's to come, I promise there will be loads of even more exciting stuff to come when I'm fully up an running.



27 January, 2011

It's been a long time coming,  but I  have finally decided to go on an official hiatus, it'll be no different from what I've been doing on the blog  the past few months ie; nothing but this time I'll feel a lot less guilty about it. Looking back to when I first started, I was blogging two or three times a day but now I'm lucky if I do it 3 times a month which is really disappointing because there hasn't really been anything stopping me except my own laziness and at times self-doubt  plus the odd laptop malfunction.

But I shall be back, hoepfully by the first week of  March with a renewed love for blogging and life in general, until then, you can keep up with me and my not-so-exciting life by following me on Twitter.
Hope to see you all on the other side

Kanye West x Dazed & Confused, January 2011
via Hypebeast

I love 'this' Kanye;  V-necks, suede slippers, Leather jeans, and a plethora of chains, they shouldn't work but he somehow manages to pull it off and effortlessly, I love it all. Not too sure how I'd feel if this actually started a trend amongst regular guys, but on Kanye, it looks beautiful. 

P.S Outfit posts will be making a return very soon, my room has been a tip for the past few months but I've finally got around to sorting it out so we should soon be returning to our regular schedule. Yayy!!!
