4 MONEY SAVING HACKS FOR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS 

1. Open up a student bank account.

You probably already have a Student bank account, however for those who haven't got there's yet here are some great benefits to opening up an account that is dedicated to students specifically.

Firstly and most importantly you get an interest free overdraft. Foxberry boys would advice against getting loans and things like that, but interest free money is a great way to tide yourself over if you’re short on rent,food, or if you’re waiting for your student loan to drop. There are also other amazing benefits with a student account like this, such as free taste card and coach card for example which gives you a 1/3rd off coach fares – an absolute God send. We all know that city hopping to visit home (or even just for that unmissable party) is simply a must during uni.

 

2. Get Active

Exercise really can make a world of difference. Get gym memebership; it's a great way to socialise, here about the house parties and generally keep fit (as you may well know a lot of junk eating and beer is consumed in the first couple months). 

Another way to the proactive get some regular 'money' coming in. I always say get creative and use some of the talents you have to generate an income. I’m a firm believer that if you have a skill/you can make some money e.g. selling a product (buying something at a lower price and selling it for more is a great way to be savvy) or got great photography skills (get involved in night club student night photography).

I personally know people that started student barber shops they bought themselves some essential hair cutting tools  and basically kept the guys on campus looking fresh. Something like having an interest free overdraft would definitely help to get initiatives like this off the ground so get creative.

3. The 3 F’s – Food, Family, Friends

These 3 F’s are the best medicine for the soul and gives me a confidence boost on days when I am not feeling 100. Being with my family and friends, enjoying good food always brings out the best version of me. I like to jump on a phone call, or invite the squad over for a group effort meal and a games, instantly I always feel better.

4. If you’re going to shop, shop smart! – NUS Extra Card is a must for discounts, offers for household, fashion and entertainment items. Back as it again if you have student banking Santander offers free 16-25 rail card for 4 year (what a whopper that saves you £100) or bank with NatWest and receive taste  cards up to 50% off 100s of eateries.

**Do your homework - look out for grants and opportunities out there for you as a student I was able to get a free iPad and money towards printing allowance a great savings!

 

British Summer Time Festival @ Hyde Park

The highlight of the British Summer Time Festival weekend was Steven Wonder on stage at the British Summer Time Festival on Sunday 10th July - tickets sold out weeks before the show was to begin, which was not a surprise as other headline acts were Pharell Williams and Corinne Bailey Rae. Each day of the British Summer Time Festival at Hyde park looked to provide music from around the world and an array of music talent from different genres.

 

We were lucky enough to gain tickets for the Friday, 1st July - Massive Attack. With performances by Young Fathers, PREP and Patti smith and her band. The vocalist GhostPoet was one of the new sounds at this years BSTHydePark, the young Nigerian performed songs from his mercury prize  nominated album 'Shedding Skin'

 

I was personally delighted to have some summer sun on Friday 1st July to make the day at BSTHydePark all that bit more epic. On the second weekend, the BSTHydePark stage saw the highlights of Mumford and sons, Take That and even fan spotting singer Niall Horan from boy band One Direction.

 

Ella Eyre, 22, certainly made the most of her opportunity supporting the group as she poured her all into her afternoon set at the leafy location in the capital.

The Deeper singer put on a busty display in a figure-hugging catsuit with a sheer panel revealing plenty of cleavages.

 

The cheeky chappie Olly Murs on stage , looking very dapper in a fully buttoned white shirt and a pair of black trousers.He sported his familiar well-coiffed quiff and some designer stubble for the lively set.

 

Take That didn't disappoint the tens of thousands of fans who flocked to Hyde Park on Saturday 9th July. Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald were at their entertaining best as they made their way through the band's hit-filled back catalogue.

Who knew that Reebok would dig into the archives and relaunch the classics!! This Easter Bank Holiday Weekend I decided to go shopping. Final stop Covent Garden to add a pair of trainers to my collection for the spring/summer. Nike and Addidas have been very popular amongst the socialites with their adventurous designs and I wanted something different - simple, durable, cool and classic for the festivals this year. So I went into Offspring and instantly feel in love with the new spring Reebok Classic colour ways and the durability of the trainer which made me leave the store with two pairs of trainers instead of one.  A definite must have, don't be the one to miss out and secure your pair today.

Straight out of Foxberry Road

London, SE4

London, SE4

Yesterday I got to see the film 'Straight Outta Compton' at the Odeon cinema at my local neighbourhood and although I am know expert film critic I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it and I would definitely give the film a 5 star rating. 

In the movie there is a scene backstage where DJ Yella is chastised by Easy E before a concert because he is wearing a yellow vest. The N.W.A colour scheme was black and silver like their football team, LA Raiders. This was crucial. It was as much a part of their star power, as tracks that expressed the blistering anger of young black men on the streets of LA in the eighties. Like N.W.A, Foxberry Boys knew the power of image and branded themselves creating the fox logo to represent the name which derived from Foxberry Road, London, SE4.

NWA’s monochrome streetwear has even influenced how young men dress now. Inspired by contemporary rappers who are also style influencers such as Drake and ASAP Rocky.  The great thing about NWA’s look is how easy it is to put together. That’s probably the thing that made them, a group of kids with little disposable income for designer clothes, do it in the first place. One Snapback (Foxberry Boys) white T-shirt (Topman) and a pair of black jeans (Topman) and you’re sorted.

It’s hard to put into words how I really like this movie. But I would recommend that if you like rap or just want a piece of a history lesson, this movie is it. It takes in every aspect of the essential roots of these men from Compton into what rap has become in our society. It’s real. It’s powerful. It’s a must-watch.

History of the Snapback

Welcome to The Diary of the Original Foxberry Boys and our first blog on the history of the Snapback hat.

The Snapback trend started in the 1990’s in the USA, urban areas such as New York and Los Angeles were the main birthplaces. The style was adopted by some of the biggest Rap artists and RnB music groups of that era and the trend has been growing ever since. In the early stages the Snapbacks were used to represent the two coasts of America. West coast people such as N.W.A, wore hats that represented the Los Angeles suburb of Compton. On the other side of the country, groups such as Mobb Deep wore hats that had New York boroughs stitched on such as Brooklyn and Queens. I think it would be hard pushed to find someone who does not own a Snapback in this day and age. Everyone now is wearing and collecting Snapback hats, matching them with their clothes, and looking fresh.

Snapbacks have stayed at the top of one of the most purchased fashion accessories as fashion icons such as Jay-Z, Beyonce; Boyz II Men, Chris Brown; David Beckham, Jodeci and P Diddy to name a few have been wearing them.

The youth culture and hip hop fashion have popularized the Snapback, although it is now popular among many other groups and ages. Snapbacks are far less expensive than fitted baseball caps and have become increasingly trendy in the urban fashion industry.
