Birthday & Midsummer Weekend

Sunday, 23rd June, 2019

Midsummer T Shirt - Adidas Originals

Happy Sunday guys!

So this weekend it has been a really nice, chilled out and relaxed kind of affair. It was my birthday, and I wanted to just relax for most of the weekend. It was also Midsummer, which means drinking cider, and wearing what now seems to be my obligatory Midsummer t-shirt…Since I wear it once a year :mrgreen:

I had a couple of drinks of cider, my favourite which is Rekorderlig. The flavours are so good, and I’ve featured the Rekorderlig botanicals on the blog before. If you’ve never tried them now is the perfect time. They go down really well in the Summer.

Rekorderlig Botanicals Ciders for Midsummer

For my birthday I got some cool clothes, and so I’ll be posting the outfits and what I got over the coming days and weeks. There’s some nice pieces of menswear which I’ve wanted for a while, and since the sales are on, I’ve bought a few more things which I can’t wait to share.

Speaking of menswear…Fashion Friday. Some people asked where it was. I have tons of style and fashion related features for the summer which I need to do (like the latest floral shirt post) which I’ll be doing for a few weeks – So Fashion Friday aka the must have menswear for the week is taking a little break.

Even though the football season is over, since I am a footy fan, I always find some to watch. Yesterday I watched the Spain U21 vs Poland U21, and what a great match it was. Spain won 5-0 and were brilliant. I also caught the penalties in the women’s world cup with Norway & Australia. Later today England will be playing Cameroon, and tomorrow USA vs Spain.

Birthday cake and socks

Here’s a pic of my cake, a novelty cake of course which tasted really good. And then my socks, blue and yellow from Jollies, I really like these socks.

Have a great Sunday guys ๐Ÿ™‚

Dip Dye Sunday Style & What I’ve Been Up To This Weekend

Sunday, 2nd June, 2019

Dip Dye Sweatshirt - My Sunday Style Edit For A Laid Back Look

Happy Sunday guys!

I have to say, I feel pretty well rested and chilled out today! It has started as one of those days which looks gloomy, but if you go outside it’s really warm. I might not get another chance to wear my dip dye sweatshirt again, so I’ve decided to pull it on since it’s a relaxed kind of day.

Last night was pretty good, there was football, boxing and music, aka my song of the summer which I will listen to at least once a day…More on that below

Gumball 3000 x Kappa Capsule Collection 2019

One of the coolest collaborations of the Summer launched a few days ago at Selfridges between the two iconic brands, Gumball 3000 famed for it’s car adventures stretching 3000 miles, and Kappa, one of the go-to retro sportswear brands of Italy. I was going to feature a few pieces in my last fashion Friday, but I thought the capsule collection deserved to shine in a post of it’s own.

Here’s some of the key pieces from the capsule collection which caught my eye.

Grey Roll Neck For Bank Holiday Monday In Late May

Happy Bank Holiday!

If you’re not in the UK then I apologise, but we have a day off today, it’s the late May bank holiday. This weekend I have had a quiet and chilled out one, as is usually the case for Bank Holidays. Some call them boring, but I do love it when you can do absolutely nothing for a few days, it’s a great period of rest.

Beerfest For Film Night

Sunday, 26th May, 2019

Beerfest Film Review

Hey guys! I hope you are well. So for my latest film night, I was having a look through Amazon and found Beerfest. It sounded like it would be fun, so I decided to give it a watch.

When watching the film I thought it started to look familiar. I have actually seen this film before, but not from start to finish, so it was good to see that I should like this, since I have partly seen it.

The Weekend: The Final Of The 2018-19 Premier League Season

Monday, 13th May, 2019

Wearing A Stanford University Hoodie

Happy Monday, I hope you had a good weekend.

Do you remember that time I went to Stanford University for 4 years? Yeah, OK, so maybe that didn’t happen, but I did find my Stanford University hoodie that I bought ages ago. I was hunting around for it, and eventually found it, so had to wear it yesterday when we had sunshine but it was cold.

There was only one thing going on this weekend, it was the end of the Premier League, and the race for the title. It was either Man City or Liverpool, and I wanted Man City to win, and they did! They’ve won their last 14 games in a row in the Premier League, got 98 points and so deserve to win it.

The Festival (Film) For Film Night

Sunday, 12th May, 2019

The Festival Film Review

A film I’ve wanted to watch for a while is The Festival. I’ve had it in my Amazon wish list, and was going to buy it, but lucky for me, it’s been put on Amazon Prime, so I decided to watch it.

The trailers for the film looked good. As the title suggests, the setting for the film is at a music festival. It stars Joe Thomas from The Inbetweeners and is directed by Iain Morris, who was also involved with that show. I liked The Inbetweeners, the trailers looked good, so I thought this was going to be a good watch.

I’ve never been to a festival, and after watching this film, I’m so glad about that….
