I really didn't know what to say.

Prepare to shit your pants at what I am about to show you. Many months ago I was in a meeting with Reebok regarding some things that I am not going to disclose. Due to the nature of this meeting the conversation was able to drift in and out of relevance. We talk about many things including past and present projects that Reebok had been involved in. One of the projects mentioned was so earth shatteringly amazing I have been dreaming of it ever since. At the time I really could not understand why it was spoken about in such a nonchalant manner. This was a HUGE deal but then again I suppose with Reebok being a sports brand they didn't really understand the level of greatness surrounding this particular project.

Anyway, sometime last week I found myself in the Reebok Lounge obviously with the legend of this certain shoe in the depths of my memory. I sat down, I chatted for a while with Dee and Dominik and then suddenly I remembered. I turned to Dee and asked her

"Do you by any chance have the Chanel and Reebok lovechild here?"

She got up and walked away. When she returned she was holding these...

I was speachless.

All we know is that there were 20 pairs made for a Chanel catwalk show in the 90s. The 20 models that were priveleged enough to wear them were also allowed to keep them. Rumour has it that a pair managed to find their way onto Ebay where they sold for £2000. If you would like a pair you will need to hand over £2000. Just in case you do have the £2000 this shoe is called the Chanel Pump Fury.

Are they worth £2000?

FUCK YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Santa, I have been a very good boy this year. Except for that one time when I got really drunk and... Anyway, I think you know what I want.

It's all Fine and Dandy

Dandy - a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance, refined language, and leisurely hobbies.

I stumbled upon an amazing online store a few days ago It's called Fine and Dandy Shop and believe me when I say the things stocked there are exactly that.

There are certain things one must be in possession of in order to qualify as a Glamorous Man. With regards to ones chosen attire the Fine and Dandy Shop seems to have all of our backs covered, Just take a look...

Bow Ties
(This is what a real bow tie looks like before it has been tied. None of that clip on nonsense)
Brim Hats

Pocket Squares
(If you think that this is a handkerchief then sadly you are in the wrong place)

Silk Scarves
(You ain't got glamour till you got one of these)

Tie Pins
Charles Henry, the owner of the site has sourced much much more. This is only a very small selection of what is for sale, and with prices as low as his I implore you to purchase more than one colour way in each item.

While you are there why don't you check out the

A quote I found today...

Nobody ever worries about the hole in the roof when the sun is shining.

The key to my heart

This is going to be a quick one.

Remember my Lamborghini? Well I have found the perfect key fob for me to use to open it. It's by Amosu.

As you can see, It's covered in diamonds. The very things I love!

They make the kinds of things that make me want to shit my DKNY trunks!

That is all!

Bitch You Better Work!!!

So for those of you that don't know what I do, I am a stylist. I work with brands and I see a lot of things. I also get given a lot of things too. Do not by any means think that I get these things for nothing. I have to work, I have to work very hard.

One of the perks of being a hard worker isn't just the fact that I get given things. The real perks lie in what I get given. For example, here I have an image of my latest acquisition courtesy of Reebok.

A pair of Ex-o-fit Hi tops in Radar Yellow.

Now I'm guessing that not everyone reading this is a Reebok connoisseur so I'm just gonna come right out and say this...


Well I say never but what I actually mean is not until autumn/winter 2009 (this time next year), and even then they won't be available in this colour. There are only 2 pairs of these trainers and one of them belongs to me.

So yeah, just in case you didn't know.

They did come in a pair but the other one looks exactly the same as this one so you don't need to see it.

The only companionship I need

All I'm saying is I want one now!

The innocence of a child

I spent most of today with my siblings. Christian is my 6 year old brother and Anike is my 11 year old sister. Here's how one of many conversations went.

Christian: Niyi, Anike is crying.
Christian: I don't know, She's always crying.
Niyi: She's such a baby.
Christian: Maybe her diaper is dirty.
Niyi: Maybe she's hungry.
Christian: I think she want's breast milk.

(Gets up into Anike's face)

Christian: Do you want some breast milk?
Anike: Leave me alone!
Christian: Niyi I don't think she wants any breast milk
Niyi: Hahahaha
Christian: Hahahaha
Niyi: Let's watch Ben 10.
Christian: ok.

A quote I found today...

I may not remember your actions but I will remember the way they made me feel.

Thank god for Facebook because this could have been embarrassing.

Those who know me will know that I have the worlds worst memory. They will also know that I have an attention spac comparrable to that of a fly. These two factors have been know in the past to get me into a hell of a lot of trouble. Today however I was saved by the grace that is Facebook.

Here is how the story goes...

There is a certain person who's name I have always believed to be synonymous with legendary. He is always at the forefront of any conversation regarding his specific craft within the fashion industry. Dominik and I are always talking about this person with such admiration it is actually insane. It's one of those scenarios where I would have been more than honored to meet this person and simply shake his hand. So I decided to request this persons friendship on Facebook. I felt that it was probably the closest I was ever going to get to actually meeting them in person. They accepted my request however no form of communication was established by ether of us which I was totally fine with until today.

I decided I wanted to learn a little more about this person so I clicked on their profile and thought that maybe I would even leave a comment stating how amazing I thought their work was. Well, after clicking on said persons profile I decided to have a good old gander at their photos and boy did I recieve the biggest shock of my life. It turns out that not only did I recognize the face of this person, but we had actually met. On several occasions.

I think it may have been a case where every time we met I was either too drunk or to unfocused to take note of his name and profession. How stupid do I feel?


Thank god I discovered this via Facebook though. Just imagine if we had met again at another event with all our peers and colleagues and I had said something stupid like

"So what do you do?"

I can just imagine the expression on everyone's face as I literally commit social/career suicide. It would be a travesty. Even my great great grand children would be ashamed of me.
