Sunday Style: Sand Colour Knit

Sunday style - Sand colour jumper from Ruffle And Bow with PRPS Jeans

Hey guys!

I hope that you’re having a good weekend. Later tonight I will be watching the Celebrity Take Me Out which I am looking forward to seeing, I don’t know why they’ve put it on a Sunday for the first time, maybe because the Saturday night schedule is full up with The Voice (Which I don’t watch).

My Sunday Style is this sand colour jumper. I don’t actually know what you’d call the colour; Sand, sandy, beige, light brown…Whatever you call it, this is it 😀 I really like these tones for a knit, they work with pretty much anything and is something brighter than the standard greys, blues or black. This one is from Ruffle and Bow which I got a while back. They are a Gothenburg based brand, and more denim focused, but brought out this jumper a while back. It’s pretty decent, the fit is a little baggy which is good for a Sunday.

On the bottom half are one of my pairs of PRPS jeans. This pair is a lighter colour denim than I usually wear, and have distress marks, rips and whiskering to them, giving them a more casual look and feel. They are washed and quite soft, and pretty light denim so are comfortable to wear.

Is The Nokia 3310 Coming Back – Why I’m Not Excited

My Nokia 3330

This week there’s been some news that HMD, the Finnish company which has the licence to the Nokia brand, is going to re-release an updated version of what I would say is the best mobile phone series in history, the Nokia 3310.

I am looking forward to seeing what this Nokia looks like, but sadly, I am not too excited by this, and I doubt very much I will get one. Let me explain why.

Livello Review – Newcastle Bar And Nightclub

Livello Bar And Nightclub Review

I have so many Newcastle bar reviews, I thought it was about time I finally wrote my review of Livello. It’s now been in the town for a number of years, and is located on the way down to the quayside in Newcastle. It’s a one which a lot of people talk about, both from Newcastle and far and wide, and is part of the same culture as the bars on The Diamond Strip, although not actually on Collingwood Street.

Happy Valentine’s Day 2017

Valentines Day 2017 goodies

Happy Valentine’s Day Guys!

I can bearly move…I just made myself some gyros with kebab meat and chips which I got from the chip shop, they were so good! These days I hardly ever eat takeaways or anything like that, so it was a bit of a treat for me 😛

Now I also have a lot of chocolate to eat, as well as a few bottles of Bottega Gold to drink. I am going to watch a film later, I haven’t decided what that will be yet. I can’t wait to try my Charbonnel et Walker truffles, I have a blue box which I have never tried before, so I am looking forward to that.

I hope you have a good Valentines Day 😀

What To Do For Michael Day 2017?

It’s Valentines Day Michael Day on Tuesday, and I don’t have any idea on what food to eat! It’s become some tradition that on this day I make food, which started out as just Spaghetti Bolognese which I love, to then making gyros with kebabs and chips, and of course plenty chocolates, red wine and champagne.

I was going to buy some Aberdeen Angus Fillet Steak, but I am not really in a “steak mood”, so it would be pretty much. So what should I eat? I am the most fussy eater in the World, so maybe I will have gyros once again, or I might just keep it nice and simple and have the traditional Northern dish which is Pie & Chips! :mrgreen:

On the night I have champagne, chocolate and truffles at the ready, and I am really ready for those! 😀

If you have ideas on something which I can make (or buy) feel free to let me know in the comments. Here’s some pics of what I’ve had in the last couple of years.

Adidas Tango Cage Blue Collection

Adidas Tango Cage Blue Jackets

Although it’s still Winter, you should probably be thinking about getting out and training, if you haven’t already. Addias have released the Cage collection which I really like. There’s pieces including jackets, hooded tops, T-shirts and shorts, and come with iconic prints and designs.

The Tango collection is actually based on football clothing, the Tango football was an iconic football created by Adidas and used in the 1978 and 1982 World Cups. With all sportswear they have multiple uses, so if you’re having a kick around, playing 5 a side or going for a run, these pieces will work well for any occasion. The Tango Cage collection has a distinctive sublimation print throughout, and is available in red and black, although I love the blue variations which I have chosen here.

Selected pieces are also made with recycled polyester. This is part of the Adidas sustainable product program which sees the products made in the most sustainable ways possible.

My favourite pieces from the collection include the T-shirt above, which has the cool printed design and only costs £25 from Adidas here. The track jacket in the middle is another favourite. It’s a classic Adidas track jacket with tonal three stripes down the arms, and the pattern on 2/3 of the jacket and arms. This is another reasonably priced piece of clothing at £48 here. The first top is a more toned down version, which is priced at £35.

Adidas Tango Cage Blue T Shirts
The blue T Shirt comes in climalite fabric to sweep the sweat away from the body, and will set you back £30. The shorts will give you good freedom and movement for running, and are £22. Finally the classic track jacket comes with contrasting white colour zip and stripes on the arms, it’s navy in colour, has kangaroo pockets to the sides, hood and white zipped front. This one is also from the recycle range, and has the recycle logo to the front left breast, and costs £60.
