Thomas Sabo A/W15 Press Launch

Hi Guys!

On Tuesday I had the pleasure of being invited to the Thomas Sabo Autumn/Winter 15 collection in the Marker Hotel by the girls at Revolve Marketing and PR. It was my first time being in The Marker Hotel, so that was a big plus for me as I have heard so much about it and I have wanted to check it out for a long time. I was very impressed with what I saw of the hotel and I plan on going back in the near future. (more…)

Dublin and Birthday Haul!

Hi Guys!

As you know I recently attended and spoke as part of the Fashion and Beauty  panel at the recent Irish Bloggers Conference in Dublin. Whenever I visit Dublin I always try to get some shopping done as I find the shops have a better selection available to everyone. This is my first haul post. Unfortunately there is no video as I am not confident enough to do a haul video just yet! I will also show you some stylish gifts I received for my birthday and one or two little things I bought for myself ;-). (more…)

Fantastic Florals

Hi Guys,

Well February is nearly over, so Spring should be well and truly here. Although in Ireland given the current weather you wouldn’t think it! One of the many trends that appears every Spring/Summer is florals. Yes I know florals, how original! This is often seen as a no go area for guys from my past experiences. The reasons usually given are as follows: florals are for girls, florals are only worn by gay guys, the colours are too bright, I’ll attract too much attention etc. Well on my recent travels to Marrakesh I stopped by the large Zara store in the more modern area of the city. I noticed a few items which I think will help solve this problem and prove that florals are for guys too!

Here are the items I mentioned earlier from Zara

If anyone is unsure when trying out a new trend then always start with accessories when doing so. This allows you to try out a trend without being too in your face. These pieces from River Island and Topman should help with this.

If and when you gain confidence from this t-shirts, shirts and maybe even jackets are the best way to show off this trend. Here is another few pieces which wouldn’t look out of place in any stylish man’s wardrobe. All of these items are easily paired with chinos or denim for a smart or casual look.

Well I hope you like these items, let me know what you think and share your pics and experiences of wearing florals.
