Big Sean Tells Us How He Really Feels

While in LA a few weeks ago, I heard "I Don't F With You" for the first time. Needless to say, it's a pretty candid and brutal song directed at his ex-fiancee Naya Rivera. After their abrupt break-up, cheating rumors, and her whirlwind wedding to another man on their wedding date, Big Sean lays it all out on this track. I for one am a fan of this song; sometimes you've just got to get things off your chest!

New Track: My Nigga Just Made Bail

BAS, real name Abbas Hamad, made his big debut after he released his first studio album "Last Winter' earlier this year. The rapper was raised in Paris until he moved to Jamaica and eventually New York where he was picked up by his mentor J. Cole. His tunes feature a mix of Cole rap with Frank Ocean beats, both people I really do love, so it's no surprise I'm a fan of his music.

Blankets: The New Fall Coat

Earlier this year, Burberry revealed their AW'14 collection which featured models draped in their own personalised Burberry cashmere blanket. Christopher Bailey's message was clear: this was to be the next big thing. His vision is definitely coming to life, and in full force, as this Fall the Blanket coat is a growing trend (and a creative one at that).

Personally I love it, you can accessorize your look easily by donning an extra layer with a choice of numerous colours, textures and patterns. And plus, who doesn't love a good layering?

Gone Girl

Gone Girl has to be one of my favorite thrillers of all time. The intrigue and suspense manage to carry the audience through what is a reasonably long film while the incredible acting skills of Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike allow an insightful yet disturbing look into a modern marriage. Tyler Perry also provides some much-needed comedic respite throughout the second half of the film. In the hopes of not giving too much away, I'm going to stop and let the trailer do the rest of the talking. If you haven't seen this film yet, now is the time to do so!

Andre 3000's Profound Messages

This year has revelled in the return of Outkast to the music game. The pair, Big Boi and AndrĂ© 3000, reunited this year and promised a comeback tour putting them as the headline for various festivals around the world. Although I have not been lucky enough to attend any of theirs performances, my friends tell me they're as electric as ever. Something that has caught my eye of recent are the constant wardrobe changes that happen in each of their shows, which of course is normal amongst most artists, but not when they carry a different message for every performance. If you still haven't got a clue I'm talking about Andre Lauren Benjamin a.k.a AndrĂ© 3000.

Charlotte Simone

Charlotte Simone's range of designer scarves are nothing short of heavenly. She offers a range of hoods and cuffs along with fondly named 'popsicles', 'canes', and 'fruitloops'. Her designs are also available in both ethically-sourced real fur and faux fur as well as in a wide variety of colours. Her scarves are becoming increasingly popular with celebrities and the wider public, with her latest line being modeled by singer Rita Ora. As winter approaches, it's prime time to shell out the bucks and invest in a Charlotte Simone scarf!

Don't - Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran's newest track 'Don't' has been climbing the charts since its release. His new album 'X' is Sheeran's second studio mix and with the help of geniuses Rick Rubin and Pharrell, the album is doing extremely well. 'Don't', his second track is written about an ex and a friend, which Sheeran has pretty much now admitted, are Ellie Goulding and a 1D member *cough*Niall Horan*cough*. The lines in the song are a bit cut throat, detailing the affair in a very Swifty-like manner but the beats are awesome and the acoustics are, naturally, amazing. Once again, thanks Ed!
