Event Review: CARBON 2014 // Part Two
Okay so my original plan didn’t work.
My love of words and wanting to share what I learnt at the event took over. But can you blame me? There was an abundance of knowledge that was consumed over that particular weekend and I can’t stress enough how much of a major opportunity it is that we have something like this is our country to experience.
Around other parts of the world, they have an entire season of these events!
But for real, I just couldn’t help it. Sharing is caring, right? #ThankMeLater.
Don’t worry, the visuals have continued for the second part of this review. ☺

Event Review: CARBON 2014 // Part One
So when I’ve reviewed CARBON in the past, I’ve often broken each day and/or night into a separate post.
But this year I’m going to try and flip the switch a little bit.
That is, skip the overload of words (as hard as it as a lover of words) and try and break it down into a review that will engage you and disappoint you that you didn’t attend, but also leave you wanting to purchase an early-bird ticket for next year’s event.
Pretty pictures and videos included.
The top level at The Standard has been transformed.
Alt-country punks Little Bastards entertained the crowd.
Event Review: The Standard Bowl (Industry Preview)
Surry Hills has a new favourite joint for you to hang out at!
Free entry. Free live music. Free bowling. All the damn time.
Check out our review of The Standard Bowl on Bourke Street in Surry Hills.
Originally composed by the late Aaliyah
Performed exclusively for her Live Lounge session on BBC Radio 1
Brain: Are You That Somebody?
BANKS covered Aaliyah’s 1998 hit ‘Are You That Somebody?’ on acoustic at a BBC Live Lounge session recently.
BANKS is a girl that I can listen to constantly without feeling like skipping a track – ever. So it comes as no surprise that she totally nailed a sweet acoustic rendition of the 90s classic.
A stand-out collaboration between Nike..
...and UK's Liberty London.
Nike x Liberty London
For Spring/Summer 2014, Nike and Liberty London have once again collaborated to create an on-trend collection for Summer (not ours, theirs).
The sportswear giant commissioned the English print experts to outfit four silhouettes – the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Nike Roshe Run, Internationalist, Blazer High and Dunk Sky High.
The motif itself calls upon prints like the blossom and bell flowers-decorated ‘Anoosha’ and the paisley-blocked ‘Crown’ prints from Liberty’s canon.

A new annual music festival is coming to Australia’s East Coast in October, despite the recent troubles that the festival scene has had within the past few months.
Maybe SoulFest will be the one to prove us all wrong. Who knows?
Are you willing to take that risk?
An exciting new campaign from G-Star
Starring alongside the highest-ranking chess player in history (Fact!)
With chess being the main concept, this new campaign from G-Star reinforces the brand as modern, innovative, and unexpected.
Starring Chess Grandmaster Magus Carlsen and international model Lily Cole, you can never be sure what the next move will be!
Check it out.
A song that was never released as an official single.
Originally appearing on the exclusive iTunes purchase of Beyonce's latest album.
Beyoncé: Grown Woman
Queen Bey has surprised us once again. Not with another album (although I’ve heard some rumours here and there), but an alternative video to one of her hit songs.
The song itself, Grown Woman, was never released as an official track but if you were at any of her recent live shows, you would have heard her belt it out there or you would have seen the original video when you purchased her recently released self-titled album – the one that I still have on repeat.
Check out the *surprise* alternative video for ‘Grown Woman’ NOW.

Event Review: KOOKAÏ Autumn/Winter Runway Show 2014
A couple weeks ago at Melbourne’s Royal Exhibition Building, Australian label KOOKAÏ took over the venue to bring their Autumn/Winter collection for 2014 to life with an exclusive invitation-only runway show.
‘With inspiration from New York’s cityscapes and skylines, ‘State of Mind’ embodies the KOOKAÏ woman’s journey through texture, luxurious fabrics and bold new prints.’

FINESE: Brandy – I Wanna Be Down (Remix)
Get ready to groove along to this smooth remix of a classic 90s hit, which also happens to be one of my all-time favourite songs. Fact.
Hailing from Brazil, Alisson Fluente aka FINESE adds some subtle flavours of neosoul to the original with some stunning results.
Try and get this remix outta your head! You have been warned..
