Yeezy Season 4 Calabasas Boxy Crewneck

FullSizeRender 13.jpg

Despite its debut last September, the Yeezy Season 4 apparel and footwear collection  has finally started to roll out over the past couple of weeks. Featuring the usual range of premium crewnecks, trackpants, and outerwear, the latest offerings from the Kanye West and adidas collaboration also feature a new white/cream version of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2.

Along with the Boost 350 V2, the only other piece in the collection which caught my eye was the Boxy ‘Calabasas’ Crewneck – a nod to the singer and designers L.A residence.  The crewneck also ties nicely in to the recent Calabasas collection which dropped earlier this year and comprised of throwback sweaters, sweatpants and an all-new 80’s inspired Powerphase Adidas sneaker.

For me, the Boost 350 and Calabasas Crewneck were the two standout pieces from the collection, which I hoped to add to my wardrobe.

As with all the previous releases I had signed up to various raffles and had tried to bag my pair of the Boost 350 V2 on the official adidas website on the day but had no luck! I had almost given up on getting them when I received a notification that both the Yeezy Boost 350 and Yeezy Season 4 apparel had just dropped on Selfridges. Annoyingly the Boost’s sold out during the checkout process but I ended up getting the Calabasas Crewneck I wanted so it wasn’t a complete failure.

When it arrived, the first thing I noticed was how heavy it was. Made from French terry, the crewneck feels premium yet hard wearing. In terms of fit, for me it fits true to size despite it’s oversized fit. I’m a medium and I ordered a medium. Featuring drop shoulders and rib knit crewneck collar, cuffs, and hem, the crewneck sits well and looks great paired with a pair of blue ripped jeans.

What do you think of my latest pick up? Did you manage to get the Yeezy 350 Boosts? Any tips?

SS17 Inspiration

It’s been forever since I’ve done one of these type of posts! I don’t really know why I haven’t as I spend hours online and scrolling through instagram! Anyway, this is what has caught my eye lately. As you can probably tell I’m dreaming about warmer days and can’t wait for some REAL sun. After the last couple of months, I really feel like I need a week by a pool somewhere to just relax with a mojito in hand. As always, comfort is key for me –  I like to keep it casual. You will most likely find me wearing a mixture of classic sports and streetwear brands or a pair of ripped blue jeans with a classic white t-shirt.

Ultimate Wishlist

Screen Shot 2017-04-01 at 18.06.38

If you are anything like me then I’m sure you have been counting down to payday for the last week or two as well. Although I’m pretty good with money, by the time payday arrives, I already have my budget planned for the month ahead and know how much I have left to play with and… It’s okay to treat yourself every now and again!

Right now I’m starting to look for pieces to see me through the upcoming months and in to summer. In particular I’m looking at t-shirts and a pair of shorts or two as I have a trip away next month. I’ve just put a order in for ASOS for a couple of bits- I love this Nirvana band shirt. However, If I’m looking for items to last beyond a couple of months, I don’t mind paying more for good quality pieces.

So, as always, I have put together another unrealistic wishlist of things I would love to add to my wardrobe. The chances of it becoming reality are slim but a boy can dream! It’s always good to have things to work towards and coincidently, it’s also my Birthday next month too…

I think I’ve found some great pieces in the selection above. I have had my eyes on the Gucci  Washed T-shirt with Gucci print and Valentino Camouflage Slide Sandal for some time now. You can find all the links below if you happen to find something you like also.

What’s on your Wishlist?

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Him

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner it’s that time of the year again to start shopping for the perfect gift for that special guy in your life. Men are notoriously difficult to buy for, however in collaboration with L’Occitane After Shave Balm I have put together this quick Valentine’s Gift Guide to show you how easy it can be!

The selection of gifts range from grooming products and Valentine’s-themed clothing to sneakers and technology. All of which should help you find the inspiration to get that perfect gift – even for that guy who seems to own everything and needs nothing.

Men’s grooming gifts are a great way to treat your man to a little pampering this Valentine’s Day. For men who take pride in their appearance, the gift of ‘looking good’ shows that you care and is sure to be a welcome gift this Valentine’s day.

With countless products on the market it’s hard to choose the right product. The L’Occitan range by L’Occitane is the perfect gift for men. Celebrating classic Provence and it’s men, the range infuses the iconic scents of Provence in to a carefully crafted fragrance, with notes of lavender, nutmeg, black pepper and smoked wood.

The After Shave Balm is designed to soothe the skin, prevent irritation and the feeling of tightness. It will not only leave him feeling his best on the big day, but you will also notice the results yourself – no one wants beard burn this Valentine’s day! As the after shave balm is light in texture, it quickly absorbs into the skin leaving the skin feeling moisturised and hydrated. The aromatic spicy L’Occitan scent finishes it off nicely, setting the tone for the special day.

Revamp your Grooming Routine with Panasonic

Screen Shot 2017-01-19 at 13.18.13.png

Waking up during Winter is hard enough. Waking up and starting your morning grooming routine can be even harder. Despite the cold mornings January is the perfect time to look at our current routines and revamp them in preparation for the year ahead.

Starting off the new year with a good routine in place will not only set you up for the rest of 2017 but it is also vital to setting yourself up for a good day. A grooming routine doesn’t have to take long, every now and then it’s ideal to assess what works, what doesn’t, what new products are available and what techniques can be used to cut down on time.

In collaboration with the new Panasonic Electric Hair ClippersI have put this quick guide together to show how you can get maximum results for minimum effort, which means more time in bed!

Teeth

Investing in a good electronic toothbrush will not only save time brushing your teeth, but it also does all the hard work for you. Try investing in a good quality tooth paste and mouthwash to give your mouth that deep clean feeling.

Skincare

When it comes to skincare there are more and more products which are now tailored to men’s’ requirements. With eye creams, targeted treatments and beard oils saturating the market, it’s hard to know what you should include into your routine. With hundreds of products and brands for men to choose from it can all get a bit confusing! Knowing what works for you will be down to trial and error but there are two key elements to a morning skincare routine – cleanse and moisturise. Try investing in a pack of good quality face wipes, these will not only save a couple of minutes but they are so much easier to use then having to physically wash your face. Follow with moisturiser to retain and replenish any moisture lost through the night.

Showering

Try showering the night before. During the winter we sweat considerably less so switching from morning to night can trim 20 minutes off your routine. Not only that, showering at night also prepares you for a good night sleep, relaxing the mind and body, meaning you feel more refreshed in the morning.

Grooming

When it comes to male grooming, the new multipurpose Panasonic Electric Hair Clippers has all your needs covered and can be used for everything from taming your sideburns to shaping your beard.

Featuring new ultra close blades which are 40% shorter than the conventional model, you can achieve a much closer and precise cut, saving time spent going over the same areas again and again.

The ergonomic design and soft grip rubber pads allows the trimmer to fit comfortably in your hand allowing you to have complete control for a clear cut. This allows you to trim intricate areas such as the edges of beards and mustaches into shape on a daily basis.

The trimmer also comes complete with two comb attachments (3mm, 6mm) which can be used for all your beard, body and hair trimming needs. So if you’re going for that designer stubble look all you need to do is select the appropriate guide comb and go lightly over your facial hair with the trimmer, cutting everything back to a uniform length.

Once you’ve finished your routine, simply stand the trimmer back in it’s charging station,  ready for the following morning.

Offering 40 minutes of cordless power you really can groom until your heart’s content! For further information and full specifications on the Panasonic ER-GP21 Professional Hair Clippers head over to the webpage here.er-gp21-k811-product_imageglobal-1_uk_en

The ER-GP21 Professional Hair Clippers can be purchased at Panasonic Direct.

So there you have it, will you be trying any of these tips?  How have you revamped your grooming routine this year so far?
