INTERVIEWED: MODISH MALE

Welcome to #INTERVIEWED, a series of chats with creators of all kinds.

Today we’re joined by my friend Charlie of ModishMale, known for his style and for disliking corn on the cob but liking sweetcorn. That’s weird right? Let him know that.

D: What do you do online?

C: In general? Or blog related?

D: Blog related, I don’t wanna know about your dirty online habits.

C: I have a men’s lifestyle blog called Modish Male, which covers a wide variety of topics from fashion and grooming to theatre and food and everything in between! So something for everyone!

New Music of the Month – March 2017

It’s that time once again, 2017 is flying by. We’re a quarter of the way through, that’s very unnerving!

This month one of my favourite artists made her return. That alone made this an amazing month for music.

Catch up on February’s music here.

Green Light – Lorde

There’s no surprise with this being the first featured. Rather than go on about this song for the millionth time, I’ll leave the link to my dedicated post on this track.

INTERVIEWED: LUISA-CHRISTIE

Welcome back to #INTERVIEWED, a series of discussions with creators of all types! Today we’re joined by my friend Luisa! Luisa and I met at a party at the old YouTube Space, where we bonded over free pizza and booze. I think that’s a solid base for any friendship.

D: What do you do on your section of the internet?

L: I blog over at www.luisachristie.co.uk – it’s a lifestyle blog focusing on vegan food, cruelty-free makeup, live music, product reviews and fun stuff to do around London (and other places I visit).

Concert Wishlist

Mondays always seem to be music posts. Maybe I should make music Mondays a thing on here.

This week I’m listing off some amazing musicians I wish I’m able to see perform live in concert one day, and some that I’ll never be able to see perform, and I truly wish I could have done.

 SCANDAL

SCANDAL are a four piece Japanese indie/rock/pop band that have been around for ages now. I first fell in love with SCANDAL when I was 14 I think, near 8 years later and I’m still a huge fan.

Their music spans genres, they’ve toyyed around with their style over the last 10 or so years, and it’s really paid off, for the most part.

The girls seem to perform in London once a year or so, now I live here I’m hoping I get the chance to see them soon. SCANDAL’s greatest hits dropped not too long ago, fingers crossed there’s an accompanying tour.

Bonus fact: I spent most of my teenage years yearning after Rina (third from left), the drummer of the band. My crush is still strong.
