The Ramblings of An Aspirational Man

I am not one to let circumstances dictate who I am, although to a certain extent they can. Wanting something strongly enough will draw opportunity into your life or awaken the possibilities presented to you. There are many things I have wanted that I have sampled, and there are many more things that I still yearn for. We tip the balance by being grateful for the things we have and what we have achieved thus far, however small it may seem at first. You have to be clear in your mind about what you want if you are to receive it. Success is not scarce; there is enough out there for everyone. You just have to want it badly enough without thinking ‘limitation’.

NEW VIDEO ALERT! Lianne La Havas - Lost & Found

Some of the most beautiful and heart stretching records effortlessly depict in our emotions something I quite often refer to as pure, unwavering pain. Lianne La Havas and her new song Lost & Found has got the makings of a classic. Those that know me know that I am all about good lyrics. Such a relief, that not a single phrase is wasted (although given the quality of the record, the occasionally clumsy lyric would have been forgiven). I like the simplicity of the video, how it plays with the text of the record and how Lianne La Havas 'unfolds' as a strong, beautiful woman in conclusion, somewhat mirroring the audio journey. This artist is definitely one to watch.

Partying with Gaz (Geordie Shore) - Entourage, Manchester

Arguably one of the UK's most notorious jack the lad reality TV characters, Gary Beadle (aka Gaz Geordie Shore) made Manchester his first stop to fulfill his partying needs, fresh from the latest batch of filming for MTV in Cancun. Joined by his off screen wingman Ryan Moore, Inked Up PR's Alex 'Shaq' Shafiq and fashion label Alex Christopher's publicist Paul Lloyd a very messy night ensued.

#Jsky25 at Vanity - Boutique Nightclub, Manchester

Pictured: Jsky and the Vanity Hostesses

Last Saturday night I welcomed in my 25th birthday with a performance of #Electrik at #Jsky25. I arrived at the club with Sarah Lawrence, Sara Beverley Jones, Amber Leigh, Louisa Sunshyne, Jade Saleh, Carl Malvern, and met the rest of the troop at the venue. The whole of the top section was roped off with personalised birthday frippery and the Vanity hostesses made there way over with sparklers and Belvedere. Most of the night is still very much a blur. The ratio of guys to girls was just silly though; the club was massively overpowered by women, literally only 3 guys in there at one point! Team Vanity really looked after me on my big day - thanks guys.

Drake Afterparty at Bijou Club, Manchester

Last Sunday Bijou Club, Manchester was subjected to Drake mayhem, as Drake partied fresh from his concert to a packed out club courtesy of Mode Events. Sponsored by and VOI Jeans, footballers, actors, socialites and rival promoters flocked to see the man himself up close and personal. I literally had to swim through a crowd of people to get in to what was an incredibly over subscribed event. I have honestly never seen anything like it.

"I read a story about an anthropologist who proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said: UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?"
