Luis Aragonés Euro 2008 & Spain Documentary (Luis, el sabio del éxito)

Luis, el sabio del éxito Amazon Prime Review

As you’ll know from reading my blog over the years, I am a massive Spain fan. A huge Spain fan. Back in 2008, Spain won Euro 2008, the first time they have won a trophy since 1964. It was an incredible time, and the start of a great journey for Spain.

Amazon has created a couple of short documentary style films, called Luis, el sabio del éxito which takes a look at behind the scenes footage from the tournament, which has never been seen before.

As soon as I found out about this, I had to see it!

This Week’s Must Have Menswear: Fashion Friday 5th April 2019

Must Have Menswear - Mid Season Sale Special - 5th April 2019

Happy Friday!

For this week’s must have menswear, I have decided to pick out the best of the mid season sale items! It’s usually a Fashion Friday Five, but for this week, I’ve sneeked in an additional item, because I couldn’t decide which one I would drop.

How crazy has the weather been thought? Snow in April? It’s not the first time, but it’s strange since we’ve had some really decent weather a few weeks ago. I’ve kept in mind that with this week’s guide, and picked out clothing for the colder and more rainy days and nights we’ve seen so far in April.

Structure By Joico Hair Styling Products: First Look

Wednesday, 3rd April, 2019

Joico Structure Hair Products Review

If there’s one thing which I love, it’s to try out new products and see how they stack up against the products which I currently use, and in some cases, have been using for years. This is especially true when it comes to hair styling products, so when I had the chance to take a look at the Structure by JOICO I had to see what they were all about.

Tie Dye Fashion Trend For Spring & Summer 2019 – The Best You Can Buy Right Now

Tie Dye Fashion Trend For Spring Summer 2019

When it comes to fashion trends, they come and go. It looks like we’re heading for the return of another trend, with a lot of fashion labels embracing it for women, but does it work for men? I am talking about the tie dye trend, which has made an appearance this Spring, and if it will be adopted, should last all summer long.

When it comes to on-trend styles, tie-dye has not been seen for years as something cool, in fact, I can’t remember the last time I saw it. It has roots from the 60’s where it was hugely popular, especially among the hippy set, heavily influenced with the music and festivals.

But it is now back, so will you be picking up any pieces?

Me Spain Home Shirt 2019

Hello guys & Happy Sunday…And of course, Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers 😀

I can’t believe that it’s the last day of March…The clocks have just gone forward (change yours if you haven’t already!) which means we’re on our way to Summer. I haven’t done many ‘life’ updates on the blog for a while, so I thought I would do one today.

There’s plenty that’s happened this week, including: Football, my foot in a moon boot, and lovely, lovely wine :D.

It’s the final Friday of March, which means we’re heading into April, and already well into the Spring season. There’s a transition of weather and seasons, a new month and also mid-season sales going on with some brands.

I’ve included a broad spectrum of clothing in this week’s must have menswear, including a jacket, sweater, trainers, a hoodie and a T-shirt.

Here’s what’s been going on and what you can get your hands after payday! 🙂

Music Playlist: March 2019

Thursday, 28th March, 2019

The Michael 84 Playlist

It’s near the end of the month, so that means another Playlist! The music which I have been listening to for the past month, and there hasn’t been too much new stuff which I have been listening to.

Maybe in the future playlists I should include the older tracks which I have been listening to…That would be one hell of a mash-up of music, with Brit Pop, old pop, new stuff, hip hop…

Anyway, there haven’t been any stand out tracks which I’ve had on constant repeat. I heard the new Carly Rae Jepsen track the other day, I thought it was pretty good and I’ve listened to it a few more times and I like it.

Along with that, my most listened to track, or rather most watched video is the track Send To Robin Immediately from Robyn. I love the video which goes with the track, it’s really brilliantly shot, and so have watched this over the past several weeks quite a bit.

I have added in the new track from Ava Max, as well as a couple of songs which feel like they’re good for the better weather. We’re edging towards Summer now, so hopefully there’ll be a few Summer bangers right around the corner.

Here is this month’s playlist in full.

Nudie Jeans Colors Capsule Collection

Nudie Jeans Colors Collection

Last week one of my favourite denim brands, Nudie Jeans, released a new capsule collection they are calling colors (sadly not colours like it should be! 😉 ). It’s a small collection which really caught my eye, so I decided to feature the 8 piece mini collection, which has a couple of great items.

What’s it all about?

Well Nudie Jeans say, “While browsing the archives of early Nudie Jeans gems we simultaneously had an eye on the vivid history of sportswear. The dual vision spawned a perfect sharp image which came to be the Colors collection.

What the collection has, is 8 pieces of menswear, which includes a couple of pairs of jeans, a bucket hat, a couple of tees, a button up shirt, pair of socks and a hoodie. As you can imagine with the name, it’s has some items which are a combination of being infused with a little bit of colour, or just incorporate colour within their entire design.

Here’s what caught my eye.
