A few weeks ago I stumbled across a blog named ‘Shit Bloggers Wear’. Believe it or not, the content is just as interesting as the name so I thought I would share it with you guys. Cecilia sketches ‘it’ items that all bloggers and fashionistas seem to incorporate into their fashion-forward, trend-setting outfits.

Recently I viewed an artwork where all labels, branding and advertisements were erased from the image. It made me wonder whether those eliminated elements were the most interesting part of the artwork. Advertising is art, an art form that sits in its own genre. Art can be defined as visual cues that stimulate emotions and thoughts.
Some people think that advertisements lie to us and manipulate us into buying things we don’t need. I think that’s the beauty of it, not the ‘making people buy things they don’t need’ part, but how it makes people think and feel in certain ways. It’s art with a specific and defined purpose.
Advertisements are designed to tell us a story, pass on a message, shock us, make us feel sad, make us feel happy. They stimulate our emotions and thoughts the same way that pieces of art do. The best part is the innovative ways that are used to achieve these goals, as seen in the above images.

Are you a budding photographer who more often than not gets mistaken for being a tourist? Don’t worry, I often fall into that same category. I’ve come to the conclusion that a new camera strap, that is less attention-grabbing and more outfit-matching, is the solution to this problem.
DSPTCH are a Californian company that crafts camera sling straps from US military spec webbing, creating a rugged and functional way to carry your camera. The strap has a sturdy yet lightweight feel, with beautifully finished details.
