Fascinating Food

Ever thought food was scary? When I was little I remember being scared of some foods….okay fine, sometimes I still am - the thought of eating chicken off the bone still gives me the willies (I’m weird, what can I say). Check out the food sculptures below – you might not look at food the same way again! The watermelon dude is a bit creepy in my humble option.

Tonight's THE Night

Sex in the City premieres tonight in London (that’s right, it's the WORLD premiere) and the city is buzzing with excitement. I’d like to say that I’ll be down in Leicester Square waiting for the fab 4 to show up but let’s be honest me and large crowds don’t get along. But I’d still like to celebrate and share some cool facts. In today's Metro was a great article of the lesser known facts of SITC check them here


(Update: Outfits from the premiere below. What in the world is SJP wearing on her head? It's awful!)

One for One

In today’s day and age I think it’s important that businesses and individuals alike are socially responsible and aware. Bono (as much I find him annoying at times) had a great idea when he (along w/ the sponsoring brands/labels) introduced (Product) Red to the world. It’s easy really, you buy something that you’d normally buy (iPod, clothes, shoes, phones etc…) and part of the proceeds goes towards distributing anti-retroviral medicine to those dying of AIDS in Africa. This business model works because it doesn’t require a lot from the consumer. Tim Ferris (i.e. my hero) author of the 4-Hour Work Week, is using his influence to encourage others to be an ‘Eco Bounty Hunter’ and so far some great ideas have been discussed. With the reoccurring theme being that whatever it is, it needs to be ‘easy for the consumer’. Fair enough I guess people don’t want to have to go out of there way to be socially responsible so it needs to be in conjunction with something they’d do anyway. On this note I’d like to introduce a company, that’s been around since May 2006, but that I’ve just become aware of them, TOMS Shoes. For every pair of shoes that’s purchased, TOMS will donate a pair to a child less fortunate. So far they’ve donated 10,000 pairs to children in Argentina and 50,000 to South Africa. The shoes are pretty stylish and are great for the summer PLUS it’s a guiltless purchase – shoes with purpose, finally! I’ve recently seen them on sale at TopShop (Oxford Circus) and am considering the black, possibly the white pair to wear around the town.

It’s easy really ‘do the right thing… a man’*

I'm bored, Does that Count?

Blame the Kids (in the Hall)

Last night I was indulging in my past, on YouTube no less. I became addicted to watching clips of ‘Kids in the Hall’ (who could forget Mr. Tyzik the head crusher ‘I crush you!’), I forgot how funny and random these sketches were. Minutes then hours quickly few by but I was captivated, I wanted to watch ALL the (available) clips. One in particular had a second screening – it was too funny to resist. I give you the ‘Apathetic Robbery’, it left me in stitches and hopefully will bring a smile to your face as well.
