UGG's Flagship in Covent Garden...

|


Ugg boots are showing no signs of going out of style anytime soon, they were first introduced to the ever-changing world of British fashion back in '03 and to celebrate the brand's success, Ugg is opening its European flagship store in Covent Garden.



Just one month ago, Ugg opened its outlet in London's new Westfield centre and today the sheepskin-lined footwear will be hitting Covent Garden following the launch party this week. The Covent Garden store will echo the decor of the Westfield one, with rich wood and plenty of soft sheepskin rugs.



Personally I think they look like loaves of hard-dough bread, but to each and their own...I guess.

The Original Soul Man is back

You probably remember Anthony Hamilton from his timeless classic; 'Coming where I'm From' or my personal favourite 'Charlene' .... his rough yet soft as silk voice captures me every time, you know those artists that make you close your eyes, click your fingers and rock to the beat ....LOL. This combined with his heartfelt, down to earth lyrics is what makes him my original Soul Man... check out his new song from his new album; The Point of it All

Adidas have collaborated with David Z to create the Black Tie Project.

This partnership takes a deluxe approach with premium pearlarized leathers, patent leather and tone on tone pinstripes, but what really makes this shoe unique is the toe and midsole.
The traditional rubber shell was replaced with premium embroidered leather and the midsole was leather wrapped giving a more sophisticated and grown appeal.
The Superstar has been transformed into a dress shoe in this collaboration. There are only 400 pairs available, set for release on 'Black Friday' November 28th.

Wiley 'Shes Glowin' Feat. Kano and Ghetto

|

Wiley and co. continue music's new fascination with auto-tune :-(

On the first listen I was giving Wiley a serious side-eye, but after a few plays its grown on me. I still don't love it but I think it's Ghetto's appearance that makes me able to listen to the song at all .

And is it me or does this video look like its a really funny skit about grime artists'?

I'm not hating, I'm just saying

:-)

It's Pop' Africana...

|

I love hearing about new and interesting creative projects especially when its mission is to 're-educate the globe'.

So imagine how intrigued I was to recieve an email about 'Pop’Africana' a project which aims to re-define African fashion and style in the media.


'Pop’Africana is a collaborative effort which aims to re-introduce and
re-define all aspects of 'Art Africano' . Not only will the magazine aim to
re-educate the globe on African ideas of style and individualism it also aims to
serve as a robust, visual guide for understanding the 'Africano pshyce' from an
all inclusive perspective. Pop’Africana sets the standard for iconic style and
individualism and we are steering to the limits of the stars. So jump aboard!
Show some love to the premier issue by PopAfricana.com'

- Press Release

A project like this is long overdue. Many people are unaware of Africa's cutting edge, bold fashion and style. I am so tired of the negative images the Media try to associate with Africa, so its great to see things such a this.

Please check out a few members from the Pop Africana collective and their blogs;

Oroma Elewa [Oroma's Therapy] and Tenne Fatona [MR Made

You can also join their facebook group too: Pop Africana FB

Heeeyyy...Errrr?

I love how they needed a lyrics sheet for the chorus of Hey Ya! lol and apparently they're available for parties...Joyful, Joyful!

So I've decided to hire them as entertainment for my birthday party next year and I'll make sure they perform 'Hot in here' including choreography. Because everybody wants to see old people take their clothes off

...right?

Thanks (I think) to Jimmy Sevenways for sending it my way

MOB x Nike...

|


Married to the Mob has collaborated with Nike on a pair of Dunk High Supremes. They feature a clean white woven cotton upper accented with glossy black patent leather trim. The glossy patent trim throws me off a bit, but I'm loving the gold MOB logo lace locks and flap clips...and Christmas is only 40 days away *ahem* :-)















Guess Who's Bizzack?

|
....Ms Dy-na-mi-tee!!

Remember when Ms. Dynamite used to spit?? Ahh...the good old days :-)

Well It seems like she's going back to her roots with a brand new track entitled 'Bad Gyal', produced by Sticky, of 'Boo!' fame.



I have a feeling that loads of artist's will jumping on the remix to this track...

I know its only a one minute rip (Semtex!) but its good enough for now.
