Available online and in stores now. Head on to the campaign homepage Here
Pharrell Williams and G-Star Raw collaborate with Sea Shepherd to create this new collection that's made out of recycled ocean plastic wastes.  A quick scroll through the campaign page reveals that the average recycled plastics take up about 30-40% of each piece.

Have picked some of my personal favourites, if you're looking for some inspiration

from top left to bottom right: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

I'm not normally a fan of G-STAR or Pharrell Williams' style but I did find this collection very wearable for me.

It's said that the whole collection used approx. 10 tonnes of plastic wastes in the ocean, which is actually not even a percentage of a percentage of the total plastic waste accumulated in the oceans.
And that's why it's important to remember while shopping to your heart's content that you're not saving the ocean by buying a pair of jeans.

What this campaign, together with all other similar projects, wants to get out there is that we need to rethink about our living style and be more aware of how our actions can affect the environment and marine animals. Get a reusable water bottle instead of buying a new bottle every time you're thirsty. Carefully sort and recycle your plastic containers and bags. Learn about how to reduce the use of micro-plastics in your life et cetera et cetera. Cut down the input at the source is the only solution.

My supervisor made an interactive website to raise public awareness of marine plastic wastes. HERE Go give it a go if you're interested (keep in mind that it was made for elementary students so it can be quite basic for some)

are you ok?

and it's ok to say you're not.
#RUOK your mates today. Ask them about their lives, see if they are having any troubles, because sometimes other people just can't tell. Listen to their stories, problem or not. Give the world some warmth. Sometimes a short convo can help way more than you may think.

For tips on how you can open the conversation, head on to RUOK's homepage here

If you're having troubles right now as you're reading this, you're also more than welcome to write it down if you want to talk to someone. I may not be the most helpful in cheering you up but at least we can lick each other's wounds.

Extreme Long

Which one do you like the best? All from Asos, Here
Missleading title huh? *smirk

Have recently fallen in love with these knee-long t-shirts. Great to style with skinny jeans or leggings. I reckon I can actually just buy long t-shirt dresses but most of the ones I've found have got either a flare-y hem or too form-fitting, and I don't want to look like a narcissus trainer (plus I don't have that body).

A closer look? I prefer the black one. As always.

Burial Rites

the Australian cover for the book. Synopsis: Here

Just finished this wonderful read today, not much to complain except I thought it would be even colder and more depressing, considering it's done a great job opening the story and it's set in Iceland based on a true event. Personally I love the kind of brutal bleakness that numbs one's brain and heart, not that it's not cold (actually I believe most readers would think the words are already gelid enough), but the author Hannah Kent picked up the pace a little bit towards the end of the story and gave the words some more life, a bit of a shame to my taste but to each their own.

Another thing I'm not sure about is the editing, especially the epilogue, I personally think it would be so much better to insert a blank page between the last chapter and the epilogue, an empty space to let out the emotions.

Other than that I must say, I haven't read any english book that matches my taste so well in a very long time. I love the depression of knowing no future, of seeing the love in that one person's eyes moved on to somebody else, of waiting for a lonely and violent death with no peace awaits. I love how the emotions erupt out like the Icelandic volcanoes in the right time at the right place, leaving only the aftertaste that lingers around for ever. I like it so much to the point that I don't even know what I should read next, a Murakami maybe, or maybe some bite-size fictions to refresh my taste buds.

All in all, 8/10 highly recommend

p.s. was listening to Haiku by Stefano Guzzetti from his lastest album At Home - Piano Book (Volume One) when I was reading through the last few chapters, surprisingly matching
