Its around six twenty five in the morning and I am still wide awake, I was supposed to sleep six hours ago so that I could wake up and study but as you can see - that plan has gone to the dogs.
Its amazing how us human beings - though fully aware of the dreadful consequences of induldging in procrastination - still find ourselves procrastinating almost on a daily basis!Here I am, a couple of days away from what is possibly one of the craziest exam periods of my life but instead of attending to my academic work I find myself laying in my bed in the early hours of the morning, surfing the net and snacking on cheap strawberry flavoured wafers.
I am the African Queen of procrastination.
And in four days I'll be having mild panic attacks, as it will have only dawned on me then that I am in fact a Varsity student and I actually need to pass!
Oh well atleast one good thing came out of this recent episode of procrastination - Alex Folzi.

While most of us college/varsity students spend our time on facebook, twitter, blogspot, or generally (you guessed it) procrastinating from some major deadlines other students are brewing a stylish, vintage and effective formula for success.

Fela and Fola Fagbure, two college students and residents of Alberta Canada, are the brains behind the label Alex Folzi which is a brand that specialises in vintage inspired trunks with classic prints.

Although this project only took off at the beginning of 2010 Alex Folzi is getting a lot of street cred with more and more people taking a keen interest in what these, evidently, creative duo have going on.

Although I only just discovered these trunks now (and when I mean 'now' I mean like, an hour or two ago!) I must say I really really love them, they are classic vintage and they are also undenaibly cool - very simple yet they scream empecable style.
As for the Fagbure twins, who are more or less my age, I have to give them a virtual round of applause - they've just made the world a little brighter.
Yup - I'd die for Alex Folzi too:)



  1. OH MY! these bags are super nice! I would love to have atleast three of them.

  2. i couldnt agree more kgotso - they are amazing:)
