Just when I thought the tech world couldn’t come up with anything new… Sony storms in and introduces Xperia Touch – a revolutionary addition to the smart home category!
The Xperia Touch uses Sony’s SXRD projection display technology, which allows users to stream videos, play games and just create whatever they want on any surface. The projector can stretch up to 23″, making it the biggest Android screen in the market. I was very impressed by how responsive it is. It is unlike anything I’ve seen before… and I’ve seen a lot!
Check out their promo video below:
Last week, I was invited to Sony Xperia Touch launch event at Carousel London. The event showcased Xperia Touch portable projector and its features. We were one of the first to test Xperia-Touch-optimised apps such as the Interactive DJ deck, Fruit Ninja and Math Attack. Wimbledon was also being broadcast on the wall.
I was so stoked to be a part of this experience, especially when I got to put together a DJ set featuring songs by Britney Spears! *oh baby baby*
Throughout the night, we were served some epic gin cocktails provided by Tanqueray and rolled ice-cream by Pan N Ice. *the best launch event, ever* My personal favourite was Strawberry Nutella rollie.
The event was also an opportunity for me to meet new bloggers and content creators who work with similar brands as I do. So, I sense some amazing collaborations coming up in the near future.
Sony Xperia Touch is now available, exclusively through Selfridges (£1,399). I’d strongly recommend checking this one out!
Thanks to Sony for sponsoring this post. However, all views are my own!
It’s London Food Month! That time of the year when I eat my body weight in oysters and premium spirits. *no regrets* It’s crazy but so worth it!
On Tuesday evening, I stopped by Oliver Sweeney’s Covent Garden branch with my friend Stuart Honey, Head of Markering at LGBT+ event ticketing platform Outsavvy. We had the opportunity to explore Oliver Sweeney’s SS17 collection and experience their unique collaboration with Talisker – a single malt Scotch Whisky distillery.
The luxury British menswear designer Oliver Sweeney partnered with Talisker Whisky to celebrate their achievements in quality and craftsmanship. Oliver Sweeney’s CEO, Tim Cooper, wowed us by announcing the release of the “Made By the Sea” gift box. Designed with the adventurer in mind, their limited edition boots feature a uniquely positioned pocket to hold a small stainless steel hipflask. The boots are presented in a solid oak box alongside Talisker’s signature 10-year-old whisky bottle. Perfect for Father’s Day!
An unexpected twist.
Later in the evening, we’ve been given a “How to Taste Whisky” demonstration by Talisker Whisky brand ambassador David Sinclair. Talisker’s infamous 10-year-old Scotch Whisky is known for its sea-salt flavour, which gives a smooth but smoky finish. David hinted that there was no Tabasco or spices on the tasting tables but for all the right reasons. They promised us to give an unexpected twist to this tasting experience. Intrigued!
After the presentation, we shimmied our way to three tasting tables. Each table has been paired with the finest oysters provided by Oystermen. This is a new Oyster Bar opening shortly, across the street. As you can imagine, I was like a kid in a candy store! It was really hard for me to pick just one favourite. However, the way I consume oysters has now changed forever. Who needs spices when you can enrich your pallet with a smooth 10-year old Talisker Scotch Whisky?! *becomes whisky drinker instantly*
Just when you thought London’s art scene couldn’t get any better – you see this!
Last week, my best friend and I were visiting art galleries, because… you know… we are two little cultural freaks who like to indulge in something mind blowing and strange. First, we went to see “Women of Neon” at Fenwick (in collaboration with Lights of Soho), which was quite underwhelming. Mainly because it was only a shop window display… Come on, we need moar! *in Britney Spears voice* Gimme Moar!
After an hour-long Snapchat story rant, we shimmied our way to Tate Modern as we thought it was a safe choice for an artsy day out… and it was a damn good choice!
The South Terrace of Tate Modern has been transformed into an immersive fog installation, made by the insanely talented Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya. It features breathtaking LED lights and soundscapes.
You might think that London does not need any more atmospheric gloom, but Nakaya has a positive aim for this. She wanted to change the bad image of London fog, smog and other misty occurrences, which were brought up after the Industrial Revolution. This time around, Nakaya creates the new generation of London fog – an ecological fog – for everyone to enjoy!
The sculpture runs until 2nd of April, therefore you still have some time left to soak in this very instagrammable fog. Also, watch some great live performances at the Tanks (downstairs).
When art goes from a static presentation to an experience of performance, film, sound, fog and dance! I definitely see myself perform one of the Gravitational Feel numbers, whilst vaping in my room.
Sundays are fun-days! Instead of waking up slightly hungover and ordering a KFC family bucket for one, I spend my Sundays at art exhibitions. From Tate to Saatchi, art is where I find myself!
Last week, my plan was to see Do Ho Suh’s “Passage/s” exhibition at Victoria Miro. Sadly, my best friend and I travelled all the way to Islington to find out that Victoria Miro is closed on Sundays… I mean, WTF?!
Luckily, Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art was open next door. It currently exhibits Tschabalala Self’s expressive and dynamic works of the human figure. Loads of naked silhouettes and body parts. Veeery controversial!
Right at the back, there’s a large urban shed structure installed, upside-down and seemingly mid-explosion (pictured. The interior is bright, acid-yellow like – looks pretty cool. It reminded me of that crazy shed party I’ve been to in London Fields several summers ago… *awkward pause* But let’s save this twisted little story for another time.
This extraordinary light sculpture was created by London-based artist Nathaniel Rackowe. It’s called Black Shed Extended.
Layers game strong with an oversized denim jacket.
On my artsy days out I like to wear something extra cosy and comfortable. Hence why I chose this oversized denim jacket from ASOS and a classic black hoodie from Illusive London. It really is a match made in the black shed, especially with the salt and pepper look I’m going for. *books a haircut appointment, immediately*
Burberry has teamed up with the Henry Moore Foundation to launch a fashion and crafts pop-up space in Soho!
Today, Toby and I stopped by the Makers House to look at Burberry’s February 2017 collection, which has been inspired by the works of late artist Henry Moore. There are 40 of Henry Moore’s sculptures, working models, maquettes and objects on display, alongside the clothes they inspired. It was lovely to see Burberry back with another great exhibition.
The event runs until 27th of February, so you still have a couple of days left to go and see it. You can even take part in a photoshoot at The Portrait Studio. Toby and I were really extra on the set, retakes and all that.*sorry not sorry* Apparently, the set changes every 2 days, so there are more reasons for us to go see it again.
This is Burberry’s second straight-to-consumer range, which I’m totally obsessed with. Their new menswear jumpers and briefcases are to die for! *counting minutes until pay day*
Fashion exhibitions are my kind of exhibitions because they are always more engaging and really fun to be at. From Louis Vuitton’s Series 3 to Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty, fashion designers have always been taking exhibitions in London to the next level. People not only get to see their latest collections but also have the opportunity to attend workshops as well as keep a souvenir or two.
