Insta Inspo - 01

I practically live on Instagram. Whenever I have a hint of spare time throughout the day, you can bet your ass that I'm scrollin' my way downtown.

I come across a lot of amazing feeds every day so I would like to create a new blog series titled 'Insta Inspo'. Now these aren't just necessarily inspirational feeds, I just liked the alliteration. Sue me.

1. Menswear Dog

Hemingwow 📜🖋

A post shared by Menswear Dog (@mensweardog) on

Damn straight we're kicking off this list with not only a dog, but a dog wearing clothes. My boss showed me this account. My fricking boss. Now thats boss. Hemingwow indeed.


2. Kris Martyn

Perfectly timing the end of a day long hike.

A post shared by Kris Vincent Martyn (@krismartyn) on

I came across Kris' account last week and have loved his feed since. The colours and the mood is perfect. His editing is top notch. Bravo Kris. Bravo.


3. Christian Watson

The artist formerly known as: 1924us is back and killing it under a new name: 1924house. Christian has been one of my favourite Instagrammer / Artist / Photographer / Designer / All-round-cool-guy for quite some time now. I was devastated when he announced that he was ending his Instagram account 1924us. That feed was my life. I randomly stumbled across his new account last week and was so glad that Christian decided to return to the gram. Already killing it at 25k followers.


4. Antoine Janssens

The most iconic mountain of Switzerland #matterhorn

What to even say about Antoine's feed. It's killer. The tones, the feels, the A E S T H E T I C. It's all on point. Check it. Yo.


5. Lushsux

Do you like your @kimkardashian swole or non swole?

A post shared by lushsux (@lushsux) on

Damn straight we're ending on a meme lord. Who DOESN'T like seeing swole Kim Kardashian on their feed let alone on their wall. Check his feed for some very S P I C Y memes.


BONUS GRAM

The legend en93kitchen watches anime, then makes and styles food from that anime. What else is there to say? WINNER WINNER


Thank you for reading this first edition of Insta Inspo! I hope you felt inspired at some points. Have a great easter weekend and I'll see you next week sometime in another blog!

As always, peace out and love life.

Desk Dreams - 01

Those of you who know me will know that I love a good desk. A clean desk with too many monitors for one person to look at. Neon lights and figurines. I love it all. That's why I have created this new blog titled 'Desk Dreams'. Showcasing the desks that I dream about and wish I could have but just don't have the money or space to accommodate these beauties.

1. ULTRAWIDE DREAMS

Whats better than one Ultrawide Monitor? Two Ultrawide Monitors! Powered by a beast Mac Pro of course. Clean, tidy and productive!

2. VIEWS FROM THE 6

How did Li-Chi manage to get a perfect room with this perfect view for this perfect setup? We will never know but we sure are jealous

3. PARTNERS IN CRIME

Want to work with your partner but need your own computer? We gotchu. This two-person setup is so clean and matching that you won't remember which monitor is yours! This setup wouldn't work for me because I'd want 3 monitors and that would ruin the symmetry. :(

4. THE BATTLESTATION

I don't even know what to say but wow. Can I have this inside my house like right now? Neon lights will always make a setup 100000000x better. Trust.

PC SPECS:

  • CPU: Intel i5 6600k (OC - 4.3ghz)
  • RAM: 16GB Gskill RipJaw 3200Mhz
  • Cooler: NZXT Kraken x61
  • GPU: AMD Radeon 7990 ( I dont game so anything would work here)
  • Storage: 525Gb Crutial SSD + 1Tb WD HDD

5. I MUST BE DREAMING

Okay. I think we need another photo to appreciate the true amount of CLEEEEEAN that this setup is displaying right now.

The specs, my God the specs!

  • Phanteks Enthoo Evolv mATX
  • EVGA X99 Micro2
  • i7 5820k OC 4.2
  • 32gb Avexir White LED DDR4 RAM
  • G1 Gaming 970 (Soon to be 1080)
  • H110i GTX

  • 512gb Samsung 950 M2 SSD
  • 512gb Sandisk SSD
  • 256gb Sandisk SSD
  • 64 gb Toshiba SSD
  • 2x 3tb WD Black

I don't know what to say about this setup. Ill just leave you with a quote by the great tachyonpulseN7 in the comments of the original post.

I’m too broke to look at this

Architectural Inspiration - 01

I get inspired by a lot of things. And I mean a lot. From Architecture to Kitchenware and everything in between. Today I wanted to share a couple of my favourite shots that I have stumbled upon recently during one of my many lurks through the amazing @Architecture_Hunter's Instagram page.

Check out Architecture Hunter and also the Architects and Photographers of these stunning shots and buildings!

I hope that by looking at these five images you are now that little bit more inspired to go out and create something better than you did yesterday. Only compare yourself to yourself. Don't worry about what other people are doing. Be you!

Peace out and love life.
