DESCRIBING TINIE

"HE IS POLITE AND ELOQUENT. HE ANSWERS QUESTIONS IN FLUID BUT SHARP, THOUGHT-OUT SENTENCES AND CULTIVATES A STOUTLY ENGLISH MANNER: HIS BLOG IS CALLED MILK AND 2 SUGARS, HE FAVOURS A GENT-CLASSICS-WITH-A-TWIST STYLE AND NO, HE DOESN'T NEED THOSE READING GLASSES, HE JUST LIKES THE BESPECTACLED LOOK." - AN EXCERPT FROM TINIE TEMPAH'S EVENING STANDARD MAGAZINE INTERVIEW.

QOTD

SO THEY SAY.

IT'S A FINE LINE

UPON RESEARCHING A CERTAIN FASHION ILLUSTRATOR I FOUND ANOTHER I LIKED EVEN MORE SO, SO SHE GOT THE SPOT INSTEAD. PARISIAN CAROLINE ANDRIEU IS THE ART DIRECTOR OF CONDÉ NAST DIGITAL DEPARTMENT. SHE'S FASCINATED BY DRAWING AND REALISTIC OUTLINES, AND I'M GLAD, LOOK AT WHAT HER FASCINATION LED TO.

WE FOUND LOVE

"IT’S LIKE SCREAMING, BUT NO ONE CAN HEAR. YOU ALMOST FEEL ASHAMED THAT SOMEONE COULD BE THAT IMPORTANT - THAT WITHOUT THEM, YOU’D FEEL LIKE NOTHING. NO ONE WILL EVER UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH IT HURTS. YOU FEEL HOPELESS. LIKE NOTHING CAN SAVE YOU. AND WHEN IT’S OVER, AND IT’S GONE, YOU ALMOST WISH THAT YOU COULD HAVE ALL THAT BAD STUFF BACK, SO THAT YOU COULD HAVE THE GOOD."

HELP FOR HALLOWEEN

IF YOU HAVEN'T GOT YOUR COSTUME SORTED FOR THIS WEEKEND THEN HERE ARE A FEW IDEAS. BECAUSE OF THE SHORT NOTICE AND THE FACT THAT I'M WORKING TOMORROW I'M GOING AS A WITCH'S BLACK PUSSY CAT, BUT IF U WANTED TO GO AS AN EGG THEN THAT'S COOL TOO...

WON ME OVER

I'VE HAD MY EYES ON THESE ZEBRA WEDGES SINCE THEY DROPPED, BUT IT WAS THE SALE AT OFFICE THAT SWAYED MY PURCHASE YESTERDAY. EVEN THOUGH THEY'RE CANVAS - THEY'D WORK WONDERS IN THE WINTER TOO WITH ANKLE SOCKS OR TIGHTS AND THAT'S EXACTLY HOW I PLAN ON WEARING THEM.

OH LA LA

IT'S TRUE WHAT THEY SAY. PARIS IS THE CITY OF LOVE. YOUNG PUPPY LOVE RIGHT THROUGH TO OLD CLASSIC LOVE, COUPLES EMBRACING PASSIONATELY EVERYWHERE. THE CITY WAS PRETTY TOO, EVEN THE DIRTY STREETS ARE MARKED WITH CHARACTER. THERE'S A REAL COFFEE SHOP CULTURE WHERE THE LOCALS SIT OUTSIDE CAFES ALL DAY LONG AND IT'S NO WONDER AS THERE'S SO MUCH TO SOAK IN. WE STAYED IN A BEAUTIFUL BOUTIQUE HOTEL, DID THE SIGHTS IN A DAY, I DRAGGED MY GIRLS TO A GOOD FEW VINTAGE SPOTS AND WE PRANCED FROM ART GALLERY TO SHISHA TO BAR TO CLUB AND BACK AGAIN. ALL THE WHILE BEING IN THE PRESENCE OF A LANGUAGE ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU MELT LIKE BUTTER ON A HOT CROISSANT.

FLEE TO THE MARKET

SOO GLAD THE AA FLEA MARKET RAN TILL TODAY, I THOUGHT I'D MISS IT WHILE AWAY IN PARIS. MOST PRIZED PURCHASE HAD TO BE THE LEMON COLOURED RIDING PANTS (THANKS FOR SPOTTING THOSE SISTER) AND QUITE LITERALLY JUST A HANDFUL OF UNDIE-PANTS.

DEMAIN JE VAIS À PARIS!

WHICH TRANSLATES TO: TOMORROW I'M GOING TO PARIS! YES, I KNOW I'VE LEFT IT A LIL LATE TO TELL YOU ALL (JUST AS CARRIE DID TO BIG) BUT I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LIKE SURPRISES. IT'S JUST A MINI BREAK TO THE CITY OF LOVE WITH MY GIRLS AND TO CELEBRATE ONE OF THEIR BIRTHDAYS. BE BACK SUNDAY WITH LOTS OF SNAPS AND STORY TELLING TO FOLLOW. I HATE LEAVING YOU LIKE THIS, AU REVOIR AND BISOUS X's...

ART AND EAT

HALFWAY THROUGH THE NIGHT SHIFT LAST NIGHT I ATE MY DINNER AT WAGAMAMA OVER A STRIKING PATRICIA ELLIS PIECE OF ART. THE RESTAURANTS ARE SHOWCASING SOME OF THE UK'S MOST EXCITING EMERGING ARTISTS. LOOK OUT FOR THEIR WORK ON YOUR PAPER PLACE MATS. THIS ONE GAVE ME THAT 'I'M GOING TO BLOG THIS TOMORROW' THOUGHT. NOW THAT'S FOOD FOR THOUGHT.

ONCE YOU GO BLACK

YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED SOME OF TOPSHOP'S WINDOWS EMBLAZONED WITH THE LOGO 'BLACK IS BACK' - I MEAN HASN'T BLACK ALWAYS BEEN IN?! MY BRIGHT DAYS ARE OVER AND I'VE GROWN TO EMBRACE THE DARK SIDE. MIXING TEXTURES IS THE KEY - LEATHER/SUEDE/VELVET/FURS IN SUPER LUXE MIDNIGHT HUES AND JEWEL TONES, TAKE A NOTE FROM JAMEELA JAMIL WHO'S GOT THE PALETTE DOWN.

LAZY BUM

THE NIGHT SHIFTS ARE OVER AND I HAVE TWO WEEKS OFF. PLENTY TIME TO SIT ON MY FAT ASS

BABY GOT BOOK

TINIE TEMPAH COMBINES THE STAGE WITH THE PAGE IN HIS 'STORY SO FAR'. SINCE HIS HUMBLE BEGINNINGS IN SOUTH EAST LONDON TO HIS WHIRLWIND RISE TO THE TOP OF THE POPS AND EVERYTHING IN-BETWEEN. INCLUDING EXCLUSIVE SNAPS AND JUICY INSIDE INFO - I NEEDED TO GET MY NOSE INTO A NEW BOOK, GUESS IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE STARS...

STOCKING FILLER

JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS (YES I JUST SAID THE C WORD) CHECK OUT THE NEW 'BRONZE DASH, GOLD FLASH, SILVER JAZZ' METALLIC NAIL POLISHES FROM AMERICAN APPAREL. EVEN THOUGH THEY SOUND LIKE AN EXTENSION OF SANTA'S REINDEER, IT'S WHAT'S IN THE BOTTLE THAT COUNTS.

DON'T GIVE UP

HERE'S SOMETHING I MADE EARLIER

THIS HAS BEEN SWIRLING AROUND MY BRAIN FOR A LIL WHILE NOW. I WANTED TO REFRESH MY PAGE, LOOSE THE PIC AND CREATE A LOGO. I GOT MY IDEA FROM A WIRE SHAPED NAME GIFT I HAD AND INCORPORATED THIS CONCEPT WITH THE OBVIOUS REFERENCE TO A PERSONALISED CLOTHES HANGER. WITH A FEW CLICKS HERE AND A BIT OF TEXT THERE, MY LOGO WAS BORN...

BAD FASHION

SO NOW THAT THE NIGHT SHIFTS ARE OUT THE WAY (WELL FOR THE TIME BEING AT LEAST) LET ME TAKE A MOMENT TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE 'BAD FASHION' THEMED PARTY I WENT TO ON SATURDAY. I DECIDED TO THROW TOGETHER A CHEAP LOOKING TRY HARD OUTFIT WITH EXTRA SLAP AND ENDED UP LOOKING LIKE, AND I QUOTE MY GBF, "WHEN KIM KARDASHIAN WENT TO ESSEX". I CAN SEE WHERE HE GOT THAT IDEA FROM. COMPLETE WITH THE ONLY WAY IS ESSEX PINK POUT AND A MORE MODEST VERSION OF KIM'S CLEAVAGE.

STYLE AISLE

A VICE STYLE SHOOT ENTITLED 'CHINA GYAL' FEATURES A VINTAGE WARDROBE AND RINGLETS APLENTY. SUPERMARKET SHELVES ALWAYS PROVIDE A QUALITY BACKDROP (AS I'VE SHOWN IN MY OWN EXAMPLE 3RD SHOT DOWN) WHICH FEATURES...THE BAKERY AISLE.
