13. 216/Union

The new issue of Men's file magazine came into work today, so I had a quick flick through. It's basically a men's magazine (believe it or not) about motoring/ motorbike and fashion, but it's all with a vintage twist containing it's fair share of vintage motorcycles- enough for any man.

Flicking through, I came across an ad for a company called 216/Union. They're a family-run business that collect original pieces such as bags, belts, work tools and fabrics. They really put their heart and soul into creating these pieces and you can tell just by looking at them.

12. New York

I was talking to a lovely couple at work today, both really trendy and knew what's what. We came onto the subject of travel, in which they explained they were wanting to go to Berlin this year as they're yet to go. I mentioned that I wanted to go to Venice to do some photography and escape for a while, and that I may also be going to New York with some friends in October. They told me that they went to New York in stayed in the Hudson Hotel and said it was lovely and explained how they lay on the roof watching the stars and sipping champagne. The hotel itself looks lovely, but for my own taste is too modern/ contemporary.

However, they did also mention another hotel called Ace Hotel, so I checked that out too and wow! This hotel is right up my street with its vintage furniture and variety of rooms all reasonably priced its definitely something I will be looking in to.

11. Apple

Today, despite being extremely hungover, I managed to get myself into town and ended up taking a look in the Apple store to have a little play on their latest offerings. I plan to get myself a Macbook, so I was having a little play and it was pretty much what I expected, nothing special when compared to the weight of the Macbook Air or the pure genius of the iPad. The Macbook I will use for the basics; Photoshop, Word, Internet, music etc and I just can't wait to be able to take that with me wherever I go (It'll fit nicely in the Mulberry satchel I'm eyeing up). Now onto the iPad. Brilliant. I want one, no need to say any more.

10. Photography

These are just a few more shots taken over the last couple of years. The first set nearly resulted in pneumonia last Christmas and the second are of my friend, Nadene.

9. Paris


This was an amazing trip with some great people. We were only there for a few days, but we made sure we filled them out as much as possible. Beautiful city and I can't wait to go back.

8. Photography

When I was at College, one of my chosen subject was photography which I loved (at times) and gained a level 3 NVQ. Ever since I haven't really been keeping up with it which is likely to happen when you haven't got a camera, but I decided I'll put some on here to try to spark it off again, that and I haven't done much blog related activity for a while. These photos were taken over the last 2/ 3 years so don't necessarily reflect my current style, but this is what I have for you, for now. Please feel free to look through my photos on Flickr, too. Andy Fox.
