You may remember that in 2015, adidas debuted the first sneaker made entirely of reclaimed ocean waste.

Jaw-Dropping BMX Parkour in Berlin

A bit of a departure from the usual articles about clothes and accessories, but sometimes you come across a video that stops you in your tracks.

Even though I can’t honestly say I’ve given much consideration to BMX since I was around 10 years old, this video showing professional BMX rider Tim Knoll performing stunts on the streets of Berlin is incredibly captivating. Not only does it feature some jaw-dropping stunts, but it’s beautifully shot, elevating high-def Steadicam operation to an art form. Continue reading “Jaw-Dropping BMX Parkour in Berlin”

I’m a big fan of independently-produced city guides. They’re a great way of familiarising yourself with a place you haven’t yet visited and are also a means of breathing new life into a city that you’ve long become familiar with.

Cereal, the magazine-slash-journal, produced two such guides in 2015 – simply titled ‘London’ and ‘New York’. Each one details the places to go, things to see and even include essays from notable residents of each city. Continue reading “Cereal City Guide – Paris”

Valentine’s Day is one of those occasions that makes gift-buying especially difficult – even more so if you’re looking for a gift for your husband or boyfriend.
