Not so True North

image

North Korea - the land of Lil’ Kim, propaganda, nuclear weapons… now the thing about this strange country is that we really don’t get to see much about it.

Until now. Want to know more, go here and download the ‘Behind the curtain’ ibook.

Looks like a great weekend read.

More Cape Coffee Cool

What do you get when you mix a great location, some Motherland design cues (it’s that fist icon) and throw in some beautiful furniture?

A coffee bar called ‘Shift’.

Look it is beautiful but… I dunno, another coffee spot in CT that feels just like the others.

Hopefully the coffee is good enough to shift my cynical view, see what I did there?

Yawn.

Monday made

It’s Monday and sometimes you just need something awesome to kick the week into the right gear!

This little bit of street art did it for us.

New Converse kicks

Converse has become the quintessential sneaker brand that has transcended generations!

Sure they’re consistent and a classic choice but we kind like these new editions to the family… the Converse Weapon series.

What do you think?

Great white hype

People, esp the older generation love referring to work as ‘the salt mines’. We thought the least we could do is offer a  visual reference of what actual salt mines look like! 

Enjoy this great photographic series by Emma Philips and then BACK TO WORK!

Shadow play

Love this shadow street art on the wall of a school. Personally my elementary school would have never been cool enough to embrace this!

Cafe that oozes cool

When you combine a great name with beautiful interiors the results can only be exponentially cool. This is exactly what the lads over at Foxtrot Charlie in Melbourne got right.
