I Am Alex Petty(4)

When you say his name it sounds like a French delicacy. When you see his face, you want to rough it up because it’s a bit too pretty. Yet, what is it about this British actor/model that makes you know, categorically, that he’s the next hot thing to watch? Last month, I was asked along […]

Scott Disick, there’s no need to flash your cash …

In a recent episode of ‘Kim & Kourtney Take New York’, Scott Disick bows to pressure and ‘purchases’ a Rolls Royce Ghost to impress the world at large, then ‘suffers’ further embarrassment when he has to return it because girlfriend Kourt can’t stand the aforementioned showy vehicle. Methinks Scott’s actions reeked of a stunt, which […]

How to live a simple life

Have we let fear and anxiety distance ourselves from each other as we cocoon ourselves in self sufficiency and unwittingly deprive ourselves from the richness of ‘relationship’ that comes from sharing and giving to each other?

Bro-mance….ah, mate.

Holla Holla! There is a social phenomenon happening all over the world. And we dig discussions that break down the barriers of society’s much enforced ‘jail of expectation’. Gleefully, one of these subjects is categorically second in line to the confronting documentary, My Penis and Everyone Else’s; which as we’d all agree is potentially the […]

A man and his horse…

Stop horsing around I hear you say? Polo is only for Royalty. It’s just for yuppies & celebrities and upper class snobbery. ….I don’t want to be involved with that mob… We have heard this statement quite a bit. Polo is a sport the public already knows and has association with class, wealth and privilege.  […]

Selling a Dream of Elegance and the Good Life

On a daily basis, I tend to open a glossy magazine and enjoy flicking through its high quality pages to view the latest collections from designers, home wares, houses, holidays, motorbikes, restaurants, yachts and the like.
