The Re-Up

I hate that I've abandoned this blog for so long. Moving things around (simple make-overs and what not). I will be back to posting, at least once a week. For now, I'll just say this: Never underestimate the power of a layer.

Listening to as of late

[click here to download]

So, I've been listening to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy: The Samples and have fallen in love with a lot of the tracks but I'll only mention a few to save time:

In High Places [Dark Fantasy by Mike Oldfield

It's Your Thing [Power] by Cold Grits

Afromerica [Power] by Continent no 6

The best thing to me was finding this song:

The same track that inspired one of my favourite Michael Jackson songs "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'". As I tried to sing the song to my parents, turns out they were already tuned onto the song. After my Mum taught me how to pronounce "Makossa" properly, my Dad told me the story of Manu Dibango.

Apparently Dibango was a "hard-up" (that means broke/struggling) headmaster, who had a talent for music. He was signed by an American label, flown out to the USA, recorded this song and it became a massive hit. I imagine his royalty checks to be bonkers for this song in particular.

PS: Soundtrack to Ghana Christmas '10

Ad Savvy: DO MORE

DO you see life as an adventure, as an opportunity to take on new challenges? Is it a voyage of discovery, for doing things you never thought you could? Whatever you do, wherever you go, replenish your energy and keep striving for MORE

-- Lucozade ad.

This ad is inspirational to me and I think should be for everyone: "whatever you do". DO MORE.

Poplin & Foie gras

*I have never eaten foie gras in my life*

Whenever I think of poplin, I always think of a blue shirt with a very thin cream pinstripe design. I have no idea why as poplin is a fabric not a pattern or design. Anywho... In these hot summer months I think this outfit would be perfect for a rooftop lunch. With an order of foie gras...

I did want to include a "his" version but alas... For the guys, put away these rings, put on your penny loafers and look spiffy, accessories or not.

Ah, I'm finally back. School's finally out and I'm very excited. To blog more, to work, to intern, travel around town and just enjoy the sun.

Bring out the SPF 30 people and for those little momentary times you are online, make sure to check back here.


PS So relieved to be able to rest... a little.
