Shapes and patterns, especially in primary colors and symmetry are the new floral patterns and swirls in design. Simple cushions with minimal fuss help draw the eyes and can a drab couch look good and lets be honest, come in great use when you spill that red on the white sofa! - seriously though, grab some shout and clean that mess up. Again with most little decorative items it doesn’t have to cost much, look in your Target or Ikea store. The ones in the pic are a little pricier and can be found at Loopy Mango.

A little later than expected but I’m here with the follow-up none the less and the wait  - if I must say - was well worth the wait. Kendrick Lamar broke up the No Make-Up into two parts, hence his to be continued. Though in a way this song is the precursor to the story. Anyway, I’m rambling so, go ahead and take a listen to Keisha’s Song (Her Pain):

Another thought provoking track for everyone. Kendrick Lamar - Born in Chi-Town - raised in Compton is pure unadulterated talent. He will go big, he will open eyes and on this track does both those in spades. It’s funny that while listening to Section.80 to this day I cannot pick out a stand out track so go grab a copy and fall in pure marvel of this guy. Can’t wait till “Good Kid in a Mad City" drops sometime this year. I’ll put the follow-up tomorrow, so hang tight for that piece:

I have a deep fascination with Graffiti Art and the hate/love relationship they have with the public. Of course growing up in England I knew all there was to know about Banksy - as do most people due to his secrecy and radical work. But looking deeper and further I got hold of pictures of work by Michael Tracy or better known as TRACY 168. The true originator of what is the modern day “Wildstyle” of Graffiti art. Go look him up and get up on the true background of Graffiti Art…

And here it is… I told myself I won’t post about the iPad as lets be honest, you can read about it everywhere and anywhere. Also I didn’t want to post about it as I already own iPad 2 but knew that I would lust over the screen on the “New iPad” - hey that’s what Apple are referring it to as so take that up with them.
It’s what I expected to be honest, a Retina Display - a beautiful one based on everything I’ve read - the inclusion of the A5x (dual core CPU, quad core GPU) and the addition of LTE. Of course the camera got a bump up to the iPhone 4S standard but that’s really not interesting to me - really see yourself holding that up to snap a pic in front of other humans??
So it’s here and it’s causing a frenzy but the reality is haters that it will sell. One through Apple’s immense marketing but, mainly due the fact that apps will be there and will blow anything the competition has out the water. Fact remains that Android Tablet apps are not there yet and unfortunately due to “fragmentation” I don’t see that changing unless Google does something about it.

Was listening to J Cole and realized I had to share his magic with everyone else. A cool, thought provoking artist that has a penchant for wordplay and creating images with them. A little somber this track but damn does he know paint a perfect picture. So take a listen:

Damien Hirst - You say that name and of course his famous skulls comes to everyone’s mind. If you don’t know what skulls i’m talking about watch “On to the Next One" by Jay-Z. I’ve been fascinated by his work for a long time but what’s really got my attention is his "Spots" pieces… the pure idea behind them is brilliant and confusing all the same time. It’s a piece that fits in perfectly anywhere again and must be seen.

Fresh jacket by Barbour. A standard in old British styling with jackets that last a long time - you can go get them re-proofed and it’s good as new. Classic style that can go with any look. Go cop it…
