The Gatekeepers [video]

Kwame of Hey Nu World put me onto an online content label called Creative Control:
Creative Control is "the brain child of directors Coodie & Chike and media mogul Dame Dash"

What I like best is their fresh approach, they film somewhat candidly and the videos come out with a natural feel and real-life humour. The spaces they invite you to with their cameras and the spaces are what I love the most. I mean how else could I have known Dame Dash was a beast at Ping Pong?

They produce shows amongst other vids (and recently directed Erykah Badu's Window Seat video). One show they make is "The Gatekeepers" which my brother recommended I watch. It's about two doormen, Sam Sneed (who also directs the show) and The Chad. Watched it, I did and I loved it so, I'm sharing it with you :)

See ladies, it not only the "haters" who share the same views on those "fashion faux-pas"! It's just people who have sense and taste who share those views. *smiles*


PS No shots fired, but these guys better come back for another season

Write Like A Kid

So today, I saw a friend's list of goals. What was so different and refreshing about it was the aspirational feel to it. It wasn't materialistic, with a list of things to buy or get, but instead things to learn and grow from.

The style she wrote in was child-like, not in an immature way, but more like dreams. We laughed about it at the time, but I really liked the idea.

Her list went a little something like this:

1. Have an epic love story ("Something like Dear John, something to tell the children" - She said)
2. Climb a really big mountain
3. Learn to speak fluently in...
4. Run a marathon

and so on (it was like a page long and I can't remember the rest!) I liked it so much I wrote my own!

Try and write your own, it's actually fun and humbling... Takes you back to being a little kid, care-free and limitless.


P.S. Seriously, watch Shadrack & The Mandem = hilarity.

A Quick Note


I have not disappeared off the face of this earth ;) I've just been studying for some exams.

I will be posting regularly again though, so look out for a post tonight and the UniQlo x Glamour post next week!
