Doing things differently leads to something exceptional...

Welcome to "Baby Wasp's Culture Hound"!

This blog has been born out of many hours of trawling the web searching for things to stimulate, grow and colour my world. There are so many amazing people and products on this fair planet, I want to share what I have found in one place. And in turn, give you something you can check in with on a weekly basis. 

What you will find in your visits to "Baby Wasp" is:
New Products
Designer Toys
Websites to die for...
And, Interviews with Exceptional people.

All the things I am interested in really lol. If you know me in real life, you might say I'm slightly unusual for a 28 year old female... I get excited about the smell of paper, limited edition designer toys, and a mass of other random things. But if my calculations are correct, there must be at least a thousand people like me out there...perhaps even a million. So, if you are reading this, I hope you will come on this journey with me and I hope that I can contribute to your world in some way. And if you would like to contribute to mine, shoot me an email. babywasp@hotmail.com

In the spirit of "Doing things differently leads to something exceptional.", the first brand I would like to feature is...ABSOLUT Vodka. ;)

Peace and Love

ABSOLUT Creativity

My love of "Absolut" began when I met an astonishingly good looking English woman, with curly golden locks and clear blue eyes. Her accent had me in seconds, as did her style. She also had legs and an arse to die for! ;) 
In her home she had the best looking fridge I had ever seen, and inside her fridge was a bottle that was nearly as beautiful as she. And it was called 'Absolut'. And that for me, was where my love affair with Absolut began. 
So what is Absolut Advertising all about? The experimental, cutting-edge nature of the brand has inspired some of the world’s leading artists to create their own interpretations of ABSOLUT. Beginning in 1985 when the legendary pop artist Andy Warhol painted the ABSOLUT VODKA bottle, over hundreds of artists, designers, fashion designers, photographers, musicians and craftspeople contributed their talents to the ABSOLUT VODKA advertising campaign. N June Paik, Rosemarie Trockel, David Cameron, Versace, Damien Hirst, Maurizio Cattelan and Louise Bourgeois are just a few. 

The most recent campaign gave artists the opportunity to spell out the phrase "Doing things differently leads to something exceptional" across various landscapes, and with random objects. 

The ad itself is beautifully shot, and a piece of epic art work that I would have totally gone to a movie theatre to see lol. No really, it's true! Check out the video!

"Doing things differently leads to something exceptional."

Most recently Absolut has secured the likes of two beauties well and truly worth cult alcohol status. The latest ads are a step away from the nature theme, but these two are freaks of nature in the looks department!
First up, a personal favourite. Kate Beckinsdale, who came to fame for me in tight black leather in "Underworld" lol.

Secondly, the amazing Zooey Deschanel. This lady takes uber cool to a whole new level, to a different universe! Why can't I live in an "Absolut World"? I would be good, I promise! lol

Here's some of my favourite Absolut videos, brought to you by the Absolut channel on "You Tube".

"Cut the Crap" Absolut Ad

I love the absolut honesty of this ad, so clever lol. 

Absolut "Moon ad"

All hail to the Absolut Advertising Executives. haha

"Currency is kisses" - Absolut Ad

This one gave me goosies, and made me smile. After watching this you will absolutely be with me on living in an Absolut world. ;)

Well kids, time to get back to reality. But I've got a little piece of Zooey on my desktop now, to remind me to live exceptionally/Absolut style.

I have some great interviews coming up, so stay tuned! Thanks for joining me. I trust you will be back. :)
