A good oversized tee is there for you when you want comfort, style, and comfort.
So much comfort.
Versatile and available at a very good price, this $15 men’s tee has become a beloved closet staple.
To see this shirt in action, make sure you stay tuned over on trf, where some exciting videos styling this shirt are coming your way!

The relaxed fit and light fabric makes these pants appropriate for summer, while the smart colours and striped detail make these pants kick ass in the summer. A perfect crossover of formal and casual, I have gotten so much use out of this pair of wrinkly pants that I almost walked past in store.
It’s grabbing and trying items that you wouldn’t normally pick up that makes shopping far more fun and worthwhile. Occasionally you’ll come across something that you really like, and the fact that it’s different from your existing wardrobe is how your style evolves and becomes more unique.

Three Amazing Documentary Photographs

Art & Photography

Documentary photography is probably my favourite type of photography because it tells a story of a world that is not your own in just one photograph. It’s intimate, beautiful, and powerful. Composition, lighting, context, and perspective is taken into consideration to capture an image to evoke emotion. It’s beautiful *flicks a single teardrop from eyes*

Here are three of my favourite documentary photographs:

Alpine Season

Art & Photography

Back in 2013, HonestlyWTF introduced me to the concept of double exposure photography, via the incredible works of Oriol Angrill Jordà. In Jordà’s series blendscapes, he combines watercolour, acrylic, coloured pencil and graphite to create mesmerizing portraits that perfectly mimic the style photography. Recently, I revisited Jordà’s work to use as inspiration for my visual arts class at school, inspiring this piece along the way:

 

  Although the final piece simply does not compare to Jordà’s masterful combination of hyper realistic sketches and perfectly placed paint (goals, amirite), experimenting with different media offers a great opportunity to familiarise yourself with a medium, experiment with techniques, and figure out what you can do to tie different components together into one visually appealing image.

Small Youtuber Tag

YouTube

It’s a tag not many people know about. It’s a tag for small youtubers!

I think this tag is brilliant and it makes us, under-appreciated small youtubers, feel special. I had a blast filming this tag, and hope you give it a shot too. Whip out this tag on a rainy day when you have no video inspiration!
