I actually feel quite bad about not posting anything in regards to fashion; so I thought I'd give it a shot today and tell the world what I decided to wear today!

Acid Wash Denim Gillet - £40 Topman
I started with the basic denim Gillet, with an overall acid wash. This undermined with the red check around the collar makes it eye popping and you'd easily stand out in the crowd. Kinda hopping on the Gillet bandwagon I know but it is a major focus in both Topman/Topshop trends and even the likes of The Vaccines are wearing them. A clear influence from the 80's, so this encourages outfit combinations of white t-shirts and checked shirts. Another point I have to mention is the comeback of denim, with the likes of jackets, Gillets and jeans making a welcome return to the fashion industry; Exciting stuff eh?

(not the actual shirt I wore but I couldn't find it online!)

The Vaccines - Come of Age (Review)

So, what were you expecting from The Vaccines? I'm only joking kids for those who caught on, if not, that was the name of the London based band's first debut album. But ironically, that's what everyone was asking when 'Come of Age' hit the shelves, what exactly are we expecting this time around?

Basically, don't have any expectations. They're back with new haircuts, new outfits and a new sense of musical style. I went into this album with HUGE expectations and after I listened to the record in it's entirety I have to admit I was quite disappointed. I was expecting another 'Wrecking Bar' or another 'Norgard' and it never happened. So, I went away and came back to 'Come of Age' for a second round; and I loved it. The band have clearly grown up over the last 2 years and this is influenced in the darker tones, the heavier riffs and a lot more swearing "You know I'm fucking moody" Justin growls over the omniscient tones o…

The Dark Knight Rises Review

"We were in this together, and then you were gone. Now this evil... rises. The Batman has to come back."
Personally, I think Christopher Nolan is a genius. To take a mere comic (designed for children and young adults) and to twist it into the light of the modern world and includes cleverly written responses to corrupt Governments & terrorism deserves a solid pat on the back from me. 
The Dark Knight Rises is the third and (hopefully) final installment of Nolan's Franchise and boy, what a way to go. Nolan understands what the audience liked from the first two films and has successfully incorporated these aspects into a story with thought & heart juxtaposed with heart stopping action and visual masterpieces. Plot wise; it's been 8 years since the events of the last film and supposedly all is well in Gotham City. Batman is no longer needed and Bruce Wayne has gone into hiding looking like a hermit you see lingering in the subways.  But, this is a Batman movie so o…

I'm sorry for being so neglectful.

I've been so busy lately, with everything regarding University and work; it's just all been rather hectic to say the least! But, I have 2 weeks before I depart to Reading so in the meantime, I shall be catching up on last time. This includes film reviews, music reviews and just general rants; it's good to be back!
