URBAN RELOADED: Blooming Jacarandas mean exam time

Jacaranda-TreeWith Swagga T and Brie
Hello cool people. If you check closely, the colour purple is dominating especially at Africa Unity Square and some boulevards around town. Our friends said it is not only in Harare but some other parts in the environs also have the same resemblance.
Yes, we are talking about Jacarandas of which some don’t want to hear about because their nerves will be disturbed. This means exams are around the corner. Are we ready? CLS wishes the best of lucky to the seating candidates.

On the fashion scene, the curtain comes down on the SADC fashion Week and Zim Fashion week and oh boy some teenage designers got talent. It was the battle of the red carpet and we’re still waiting for the results from the fashion police.

Too bad for Wiz Khalifa who got divorced by bubbly model Amber Rose.

I’ve noticed a lot of teenagers have gone crazy on Instagram about the couple’s affair. Well, let the sleeping dogs lie.

Hope you have checked the latest track, “Don’t be gone too long” by Chris Brown and Ariana Grande, the duo’s powerful melody is dominating on music charts yet alone it’s some favourite ringing tone.

Well somehow it’s girlish but big up to Breezy.

Back to our reload, let us check on some of our nay or yeah of the week:

All Star Chuck 70 Polartec: “Finally, A Pair Of Chucks For Wet Weather Use.”

Chuck Taylors have been a staple of people’s sneaker wardrobes closing in on a full century now. Seriously, that’s a long time to thrive for a pair of shoes that have remained largely unchanged since their introduction in 1917.

That’s why I can’t believe that all these years, they’ve never released a pair designed for wearing in wet and snowy weather.

They’re changing that now with the All Star Chuck ‘70 Polartec. While still decked in the traditional canvas and rubber construction, this new release is completely weather-resistant, with the ability to shrug off water like it’s nobody’s business.

That way, you can walk in the rain, run through puddles, and engage in heavy water fights at the park without leaving your socks (and your feet) a soaking mess after all is said and done. To add the waterproofing, the All Star Chuck ‘70 Polartec comes with a layer of the Polartec Power Shield Pro membrane between the canvas upper and the tricot inner lining.

Basically, it’s one of the best water-repelling fabrics around, having seen wide use in a variety of products, including rain jackets, climbing pants, and other outdoor gear. Go grab some this season.

Yes so much more fun and this time they have done it.

Though it is exam period we just let them go anyway.

Family entertainment on DStv is being expanded by the introduction of three new channels aimed at families and younger viewers at the end of this month.
