Well, I haven’t, not until today. Guernsey, pronounced gurn-zee (thank you Wikipedia) is a British Crown dependency in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy. There’s a bunch of history that goes into this place that I’m sure many of you will be interested in. So, I’ll just leave some links at the end of the post you can check out when you have time because I don’t. Now, indulge yourselves in the sheer beauty of Guernsey: Continue reading “Ever heard of Guernsey?”
Who is Katy Tiz? “I’m always the loud one.” Let’s leave that fact aside for now. Katy’s a singer/songwriter from the UK getting ready to drop her debut album, and is currently gaining notable attention for the playful single ‘Famous‘. Seems like a floodgate had burst open to unleash some talented British musicians lately, because Ms. Tiz is the latest natural born talent on route … Continue reading [Exclusive] Katy Tiz: An interview with the “loud one”
Does the name Cushnie et Ochs ring any bells? It should. The collaborative label was launched in 2009 by two fierce ladies, Michelle Ochs and Carly Cushnie, destined to conquer the world of fashion. Maryland born and raised Ochs met British born Cushnie at Parsons The New School of Design and the two immediately clicked. Ochs already had a collection of Polo shirts, but by the time she and Carly started working together their individually unique styles intertwined and morphed into a chic and sophisticated fashion label demanded by celebrities. Stars like Ciara, Kelly Rowland, Zoe Saldana, Kristen Stewart, Reese Witherspoon, and Olivia Wilde are all devoted fans to the line. Sure their designs costs a week’s or month’s paycheck but one should always appreciate sensible fashion whenever you come across such.
It’s rather interesting how two women of two very different backgrounds can join forces and create something so spectacular. Many have asked how they make it work and whenever the question arises both would break it down in a cool way. On their designs, Cushnie says “the collection is a lot about skin-revealing it and concealing it. I’m attracted to strong lines and shapes that help sculpt the body.” And in regards to their individual style, Ochs clarifies “she can pull off anything feminine or what requires breasts. Sometimes I feel boyish.”
Michelle and Carly hope to venture further in fashion by launching shoes, handbags, and accessories. But until then I’m sure they’re waiting for their clothing line to soak in for a few more years before taking on anything else. Until then, enjoy the simple yet edgy designs they have to offer. Check out my favorite designs from the label’s Resort 2013 collection below: Continue reading “Ladies on Fire: Michelle Ochs and Carly Cushnie”
If you haven’t paid much attention to Theo James in the supernatural television series “Bedlam,” then you’ll certainly remember his name after 2012.

Grammy Award winning British singer/songwriter Adele will release her sophomore album “21” in the U.S on January 24, 2011. The first single ‘Rolling in the Deep‘, is a “dark, bluesy, gospel disco theme”. The music video lives up to her explanation and the words to the song. Adele stated that “21” is different from “19“, but explores the same things in a different light.
Being that her debut album was titled “19”, and now the second titled “21”, I assume she will call her third “23” (in reference to her two year gap between the first releases).
Check out her live performance of “Rolling In The Deep” on the Ellen Show below:
