After living in Shoreditch for almost two years, I’ve seen already a lot of change in a creative and charming part of the city.

Lots of developments recently mean slowly on a daily basis I see originality replaced with futuristic glass buildings or trendy bars / pop ups (meaning exposed brick wall, chip board furnishings and non matching chairs) 😴.

Recently passing one of the new 5 star hotel building sites on my doorstep, I noticed they had uncovered one of my favourite posters….which ironically was covered by the last development (For those that are unfamiliar with the movement the Obey Manifesto will fill you in).

I was meaning to take a picture of the poster and it’s surroundings for the last couple of days as the scene almost resembled an archaeological dig, uncovering Shoreditch’s creative past………………However true to form when I returned to take my picture, air conditioning units where up before I had the opportunity to capture the image and I was somewhat disappointed  😦

Upon reflection, it’s funny how things turn out. I think I love this picture even more than my first intention. It reflects the area I live in.

Development and money chasing at the expense of character flare and originality.


Adidas Stan Smith ‘Metal’


What can I say I’m a sneaker addict…… And when I saw these I couldnt resist.  Being a proud owner of the Adidas Stan Smith Consortium ‘Reptile Leather’ ,I thought these new Adidas Stan Smith Metal are right up my street.

When it comes to fashion in most cases I love original product or remakes of classic pieces. Hence why Stan Smith are one of my favourite sneakers.

To be honest the new contemporary twist on these Stan Smiths had me split at first, as I was not sure how they would look on the foot, but after much deliberation I though why not. 🙂

When they came last week I was pleasantly surprised. They look just as good on your feet as they do in pictures. These Stans have a new comfy inner sole and the materials used are amazing which give the shoe a premium feel.

All in all these bad boys are well worth the £105 price tag.
