BLEEN : Brooks PureProject Collection

Available towards the end of this year, and the beginning of 2013, comes the new line of running shoes from Brooks . New to the collection will be the PureConnect 2, PureFlow 2, PureCadence 2 and PureGrit 2.  While their new line seems to be moving away from a black on green  colour  scheme, those of you with a BL-EEN fetish might still be able to find the PureProject 2011 collection in stores. In 2011 Brooks  released a new line of performance running shoes dubbed the PureProject collection. From first glance, any self respecting follower of my blog, will see why I choose to feature them, however besides the obvious, this new collection has been designed from the ground up to create a more stable and natural running experience. The PureProject collection will actually be made up of four individual styles catering to runner preferences.

BLEEN: Hublot: MP-02 'Key Of Time'

The MP-02 , also know as the 'Key Of Time' was created by HUBLOT for the 2011 Basel Fair . While it's subtle green on black colour theme earns this timepiece top honours here on BL*EEN, what makes this watch even more unique is it's ability to manipulate time. Well you can't actually manipulate time, but you can manipulate how this timepiece measures time. By adjusting the 3 position crown, you can select one of three modes.  While in position 1, the watch operates at a quarter of the speed, thus giving the appearance of slowing down time. In position 2, the watch operates in real time, providing timing as displayed on a standard timepiece. Position 3, accelerates time by four times it's standard speed, thus giving the appearance of time moving faster. The MP-02 features a 10 day power reserve, case and bezel made from Titanium, and a rubber strap. Production of this timepiece has been limited to 100 units, with an undisclosed price tag (which generally means..
