The ”shirt-wrapped-waist” trend

I had this endless argument (discussion as she would call it) with my girlfriend in regards to the amount of shirts, in particular the amount of check-shirts that i owned in my wardrobe. I had to come up with a plan with what i was going to do with all these shirts, as i felt at some point she would donate all the shirts to some hospice sooner or later.

I remember soon after Chris Brown dropped his hit song ”Loyal”, in the music video we saw him pull off the ”shirt-wrapped-around-waist” trend which if i recall we used to do as kids when you were tired of having to carry your jacket/shirt around but would end up wrapping it around your waist. But as adults after a few well known celebrities and hip-hop artist starting doing these things it all becomes normal at this age or so we seem to feel.

This left me with no choice, thanks to the help of Breezy with just the right idea and option i needed to put the shirts i had to a good, very good use. I had to find some inspiration before going ahead and doing this, as i know my girlfriend too well and she wouldn’t let me down easily if i came up with this plan and it failed. If it had to fail i think that much more than just my shirts  would have ended up at the local hospice.

Check out the ”shirt-wrapped-around-waist” trend just as it is meant to be done. If these guys could do it, sure we all could.

Esther ‘Brownie’ Philander – Better Days

On the weekend, while doing some research and merely just browsing the net (after a long week of seeing ”Kim Kardashian – Break the internet”) i wanted to find something fresh and new to share with the readers. After a good amount of data, i came across some guys doing underground creative for African popular culture which did videos and visuals for brands & artists called ”The Visual Creative Content Gang”.

They did a music video for a local artist which won a competition hosted by ”Hectic-N9”RAWkus which was a live, music talent search competition that aims to expose fresh, South African talent. They managed to find an artist which i as they say I grew up with and witness develop from level to level with her career as a local upcoming artist. Esther ”Brownie” Philander which reigns from Ottery, Cape Town was crowd the champion of the competition back in 2013, just went from being the girl with the bubbly and outrageous personality to being a force to reckon with in the local music scene in Mzansi. This is just one of the many hit singles and music videos which we will hear from this talented young artist.

This is her latest hit single under the record label ”Soul Unit Records”, with the song titled Better Days.

Kim Kardashian – ”Break the internet”

They say if you manage to get the internet to come to a halt and when as the cover shoot says ”Break the internet”, you know that this is going to be something which will be trending and catch the attention of million internet users as its goes virals across all forms of social media.

This could not be done by just anyone out there, but it can most definitely be pulled off by ”Kim Kardashian”, with her winter cover shoot for New-York magazine ”Paper”.

By the reactions, shares, comments and viral responds to the cover shoot the guys at Paper had by most achieved what they wanted too with this campaign.

How did you react to this today, did she break your internet or data?

They say in most cases, that after the third title in a sequel ”It is either overkilled or just completely lost the plot”, but in the case of ”Fast and Furious” this might just be a whole different story.
