Beyonce 2011 Billboard Awards Performance

I really enjoyed Beyonce's performances on the Billboard Awards this past weekend.  She performed her new single Run the World (Girls).

I thought it was such a great idea and looked sooo cool when she was performing with a video projection.  And also when so many dancers came on stage towards the end. It was definitely the highlight of the show.

Who runs the world? Beyonce!

TOMS - One for One

Not sure if you guys know, I love shoes : ) and I would recommand that everyone go out and get themselves a pair of TOMS! I really like what they're doing with their company.

With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.
(what a cool idea!)

You can read more about TOMS story here.

They're very cool looking, fun and great to wear, especially in the warmer seasons. I included some pics of their latest spring collection styles. You can check out the rest of their collection here. They even have ones for wedding! Plus many celebrities are wearing them too.

Get a pair of TOMS - you'll not only look great in them but will also feel good that you're making a difference to a child who's in need.

You'll get a TOMS flag with your purchase.

This is the pair I got! : )

Tiny apartment transforms into 24 rooms!

I've always have an interest in architect in interior design. This story is so inspiring!

Gary Chang, an architect, designed his 344 square foot apartment in Hong Kong to be able to change into 24 different designs, all by just sliding panels and walls.

He calls it the "Domestic Transformer". Not only did he take space-innovation to an entirely new level it's also eco-friendly!

Check out this cool video and see the stunning transformation.

Levi's - Jeans that save water

Have you guys heard what Levi's is doing? They created the Water<Less Jeans! Jeans that reduce the amount of water while making the jeans. This allows them to use an average of 28% less and as much as 96% less water for some products in their line. A jeans with a cause: save millions of liters of water and distribute it to those who need it most. Very nice!!

Check out this very cool Water<Less Jeans video for the whole story (some great facts):

and also this interesting video on how jeans is made.

Volkswagen Commercial - 2011 Tiguan Pinata

Edible Pen

What a fun idea! (made by Dave Hakkens) So, does chewing on something makes you think better? Now, I want to know what happens when it's all done? No work's going to get done - lol.

A mixed candy flavour for me please.

My Thoughts on Fast Five

Fast Five was great!! All the original cast are back; Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, plus a few new people; Dwayne Johnson. Being the fifth one, which takes place in Rio, it didn't disappoint. The storyline was solid, eventhough there wasn't too many 'racing' scenes, the action sequences was done really well. Lots of energy and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The chasing scene, when the two cars were dragging a vault through the city was CRAZY!

Just a heads up, make sure to stay a bit after the end credits. Looks like there's going to be a six!! Can't wait!!

Diesel X Adidas Originals Sneaker Collection

I was so excited when I found out that my two favourite brands are working together again; Diesel and Adidas! After collaborating for a special denim collection in 2008, this year they are doing sneakers!

However, I was a little disappointed. While doing some research about this, I found out that the collection had already been launched since January 20th of this year. The five styles were available exclusively at the Toronto and Montreal Diesel flagship stores, with only 10,000 pairs available globally.

oh well, still worth blogging about : ) and will try to drop by the Toronto location to see if there's any left.

Here are the five limited edition classic Adidas styles re-designed by Diesel. I love and want them all! : )

This one features a double tongue that can be unzipped diagonally to reveal
Diesel's iconic Mohican head logo and sturdy metal studs - very cool!!

This one goes punk with metal studs and Diesel denim rivets trace out Adidas' 3-Stripes.
The shoe comes in two colours, this chocolate and white below.

I love how the back has the 2 different logos!
