Who's that boy?

Although I wouldn't class myself as a guy who has a major lust for print, my eye is always drawn to basic neutrals. I imagine it's like a painting - a canvas, a blank one at that, to escape into an alternative reality. One could only hope, eh? It has been a while since I've donned a white shirt but that urge certainly hasn't been forgotten.

Lucy's delight

I've always had an unappeasable appetite for photography. Actually, that's a lie, to be honest. Throughout college, I was around people who had a keen interest in it so over time I began to experiment with the idea of photography in the most basic ways I could - a red digital camera. Fast forward a few years later and I have purchased my first proper professional camera. I didn't know much about the ins and outs but I was pretty eager to learn. Sadly that went a little by the wayside over the years but it has been refreshing having that light relit recently. And although I didn't take the above, I'm always happy to be a prop for my pal, even if she is borderline obsessed. 

Ps. This was not staged at all...

Nailed it

'Bland' and 'Anodyne' - These are words that might actually fool you into thinking that a neutral hue is one that you should pass on. Don't let that happen. Those greys can pack a punch. Wearing a single colour is a classic fashion trick - you are either going to look chic or garish. Having said that, many avoid the colour because feeling grey is a lot more common these days than it ever was so the association is avoided. Today is World Suicide Prevention Day so it's important to note those little mental wins for yourself. Throwing on a grey hoodie (this one in particular) is one of those wins for me.

To make them wink

Have you ever noticed how it is the little things in life that make you happy? The world we live in is incredibly image-conscious. Trying to define yourself is actually kind of hard. But at the end of the day, it boils down to each individual and how they decide to make their outfit stand out. Personally, I just wanted to try out all pink for a day. There wasn't a whole lot of winking being done though...

Midday mood

Man, it has been a long couple of weeks. Between starting something completely new and a few personal hills being climbed, I feel like a holiday is due (again). It is like every day is filled with signs to hit that pause button. You could say that the universe is telling me to slow down and just enjoy life. Having said that, I have been enjoying branching out and trying new brands lately. A little out of my comfort zone but I could literally get lost in these shorts. Brb, going to pitch a tent with them.

Day one

Do you remember when you were back in school and you would count every day as if it was an "anniversary" to something? Just me? As a kid, it usually made sense around relationships but the superficial things worked too. Well, my friends, brace yourself because there is some retro action coming your way. This is my first time wearing this t-shirt (my "one day anniversary", if you will). Very important information, I know. Peace.

"M" is for. . .

A little while ago I got asked 'why are you still blogging?' And I am not going to lie, it hit me hard. The question wasn't put to me in a hurtful way, but just genuine curiosity. Many people think of blogging as a dead ball game nowadays. But is it? Or has it just been cast into the shadows by the next 'it' thing? There is no denying that it was at the forefront for years and in many instances, you could say it still is. A few years ago, I deleted my first blog because I hated everything about it. I think it took me the guts of nearly two years, maybe more, to come up 'mark my style'. But it was that moment of creativeness that hit me, that moment I found an outlet to write down whatever I wanted. I feel I am a bit manic, meticulous, mischievous and pretty damn moody but I think that is what makes this. That and sitting on the floor constantly. In fairness though, you make some of your best decisions down here, pondering the next move.
