I'm sitting here on a Friday night at 11:30 writing this because i have no friends. My best friend left at 10:30 because there was nothing to do and my girlfriend's out with her friends.

I've got netflix going watching Forgetting Sarah Marshall and honestly there's too much dick on my screen. Not even Kristen Bell (my love) and Mila Kunis (she's okay) can make up for that.

Anyway onto my second most favourite designer, Hedi Slimane. I'm a big fan of his work from 2012-2016 during his tenure at Saint Laurent. Now for his life story.

Slimane was born in Paris in 1968. He studied art history and completed a tailor apprenticeship at a men's designer house. In 1996 (18 years of age) he was installed in the position of ready-to-wear director of the men's collection at Yves Saint Laurent where his Black Tie collection in 2000 redefined the "skinny" male silhouette.

After this he became the creative director at Christian Dior and continued to drive th…

Raf Simons

I'm very interested in fashion. I don't like using the word because it has so many bad connotations attached to it, but in a nutshell - it's what i'm interested in. I'm not just interested in how something looks but why it looks the way it does and how it got to that point.

I'm interested in the inspirations behind its design and the techniques involved in turning something from concept to concrete.
From the iceberg knowledge that i have of fashion at the moment, so far i've discovered that Raf Simons is my favourite designer. He's responsible for innovating a lot of the trends that have come across from high fashion to streetwear because of his passion for youth culture and going against the norm.
Today i've decided to do some research on him to learn more about his roots and what makes him tick.
Early Life Simons was born on the 12th January 1968 (Age 40) in Belgium to an army night watchman and a house cleaner. He graduated in Industrial and Furni…

Belief is a Beautiful Armour

Hello, I'm a Christian - Born and Raised.

Today, I'm going to find out why.

HOW DO I KNOW THAT GOD IS REAL?

Physical Evidence - The Bible

Contrary to popular belief, the bible isn't just one book but a collection of books written by a number of authors over 1,500 years. Although this brings into question the internal consistency of the bible, there are copies of the manuscripts throughout history showing that the bible has been transmitted accurately. The messages it contains are coherent and consistent meaning that although the bible was written by a number of authors over a period of time - the underlying worldview is robust.

Other physical evidence includes archaeological finds documenting how the bible corresponds to historical reality.

This provides evidence that the bible did in fact document real events that happened in history.

Testimonial Evidence - Jesus Christ

One of the most powerful lines of reasoning to support the claim that the Bible is true is found in Jesus Ch…

Rinse & Repeat

Hello, my name is Reuben.
I'm one of the billion people around the world who live a rinse and repeat life.
On Mondays I wake up, go to work, come home, watch Netflix, then go to sleep. On Tuesdays I wake up, go to work, come home, watch Netflix, then go to sleep. On Wednesdays I wake up, go to work, come home, watch Netflix, then go to sleep.
Eventually my days start blurring together and it's hard for me to remember why I'm doing it all in the first place.
This blog is going to serve as an outlet for me to break the cycle and remind myself that life exists outside of rinse and repeat.
