Meet George’s Opinion

After a long day of doing absolutely nothing, apart from drinking cava, I was scrolling through Instagram (IG) and came across Faron Alex-Paul (vigilante) post. He’d shared a post from George’s Opinion which was a spoken word IGTV on knife crime. WOW! JUST WOW! What an amazing, powerful piece, performed perfectly and the backdrop (the kitchen where a lot of people will steal kitchen knives from) was suited to the cause. I shared it on my IG story and he replied. I’m quite good at taking the plunge to collaborate with people, so I went for it. He was really nice and agreed.

The Future of Fashion Is Now: International Women’s Day

With International Women’s Day approaching, it’s important to celebrate not just established but also emerging female talent within the industry.

KANO ~ HOODIES ALL SUMMER TOUR DRUMSHEDS REVIEW ☀️

As the first few chords of 'Free Years Later' opened the show, we heard a girl behind us say "this is going to be some spiritual sh*t" and we felt it too. Kano took us to the endz, to church and back again blessing us with as much of his 15 years worth of material that he could cram into 2 hours.; he brought the garage, grime and gospel vibes.

Oh The Shade! Top 6 Rules For Elegant Monochromatic Dressing

*featured image by @blaireadiebee Tonal dressing is one of those things that you either do right, or just don't do it at all. Get it wrong, and you'll look just about as monotonous and 1-dimensional as my rum and coke by the end of the night. But get it right, and you can end up [...]

Chase & Status ~ RTRN II JUNGLE @ Drumsheds

Guess whose back!!! I’m really excited to have even been invited to cover this event and will forever be grateful to Wired PR and Chase & Status. What an incredible year they’ve had following the release of ‘RTRN II Jungle’ and what better way to end the year than with one f**k off rave in London.

Tallulah ~ More Than Friends

Lookbook – The Quintessentials of an Estate Life

When we first came up with the idea to do a lookbook, this was not it. Like most editors, I wanted it to be every other front page spread: quirky, venerable and a little out of our price range. Returning to work from a 3-4 month hiatus, this wasn't going to be possible. Reality. Realistically, [...]

How To Create Your Own ‘Capsule Wardrobe’

Lately I've been going through what I'm calling a 'style crisis' for want of a better term. I'm finding that most of the items I own are unflattering and cheap - I tend to buy stuff impulsively and don’t think about the amount of wear I'll realistically get out of it. This basically means that [...]

Too Glam For Rock- Kennedy Design x Ragged CULT

I think I first came across Kennedy Design when they followed me on my not-so-personal Instagram a couple of months ago. Usually bypassing most of my followers, something about this account caught my attention- I think it was their profile pic. Upon clicking on their account, I was hit entering this world immersed in everything [...]

Meteora ~ Numb Cover

Meteora, the “Symphonic metal band” from Hungary, has been hard at work writing and recording their second album ‘Tragedy of Delusion.’ With a grandiose sound rivalling that of related artists such as Nightwish and Epica, they have not only created a ten track album of original, heavy rock songs but have treated us with a cover of the influential alternative rock band Linkin Park’s ‘Numb.’ Having time left over from recording, the band decided to go with an idea they had for a while; including a cover. With much deliberation between band members and their fans, Meteora decided to go with the dark yet powerful ‘Numb.’

The Many Sins of the Reservoir Rats

Go on a date in the 21st Century, whether initiated online or in person, and it is a bloody minefield. Many of you will know this. I’ve always joked about writing a book about it. Frankly, I don’t really have the desire to give some of these cretins book space. Article space, on the other hand…too tempting to resist. Here’s a handful of some of my most spectacularly bad experiences; on dates and in relationships at best for laughs and at worst, to know you are not alone and we are in this madness together, people.
