Personal appearance is the most clear way of sensing a city's atmosphere.
Of course we determine how we present ourselves to the outdoor world, however, the tendency of tolerance or more to say acceptance, will form the frame wherein the urban inhabitant will move itself.
Though many youngsters in metropolitan areas often don’t want to be framed I think this phenomenon can also be seen as a positive aspect, as its synergy identifies a city’s uniform. Or rather said, pluriform - the more room a city’s vibe tends to give, the variety and colorfulness extends. Framing is not that bad, let’s all remember that.

Guidelines, we all need them in our lives. Wisdom can be drawn out of so many sources, however, their wasn't such a thing as a bible for inspiration. Now there is.Monocle
, known for it's continuous search of inspiring stories within the fields of global affairs, business, culture and design, bundled their best worldwide features and created The Monocle Guide to Better Living. It is full of stories about people, cities, entrepreneurship and products that actually contribute to a better living.
SE had the privilege to attend at its book launch at Gestalten
, the Berlin based publishing house that is leading in the range of architecture, (sub)culture and design.
A large number of the editorial staff of Monocle HQ was present including Monocle founder Tyler Brûlé and editor Andrew Tuck.
As Tuck put it: 'It's about inspiring people around the world to maybe even quit their jobs and start a new company while ever keeping quality and sustainability in mind. I won't quite my job though' - He'd be crazy to do so.
The worldwide book launch continues
through several continents and of course the yellow inspiration bible will be available online

The Green trend has been going on for a while now. We finally tend to pay more attention to our environment and ourselves by farming by season, producing and eating locally and organic and stacking our wardrobes with mainly natural fibers.
And now, it has been even lifted to a literary interpretation, by taking the greens in and creating a Greenhouse Effect at home or at the office. So how about you? Grabbed your greens inside yet?

What's for dinner? A daily question for all of us and an even bigger brain-cracker for all those metropolitan one person household yuppies, who do want to cook but don't want to over think it and neither want to waste food - because let's face it: cooking for one is the worst thing when buying groceries.
At Bilder & De Clercq, named after the crossing of their location, they found a solution for this dilemma: buying supplies per person for a recipe that has been layed out for you. I would describe it as a mix between Dean & Deluca and Marqt but in a neighborhood deli kind of way. A true treat for the Oud-West area of Amsterdam!
