Nike Air Max Zero Triple White

Nike Air Max Zero White

Is it safe to buy an all white pair of trainers in the Winter? If you think so, or you’re looking ahead to Summer already, Nike has an answer for you.

The Air Max Zero trainers are really cool, and there’s an all white, triple white pair which look as crisp as the white snow. It’s hard to believe that the style was designed way back in 1985 but only first released two years ago in 2015. Sleek and lightweight with a textile upper, I think these look really great, but probably released a little too early in the year for me.

If you want to get yourself a pair, they’re available now, at £100 at Nike and other shops. I’ve been thinking about an all white, or mostly white pair of trainers for the upcoming Summer, with the Air Max 90 all white and Air Max One all white being options, the Air Max Zero is now another contender for looking at a white trainer.

What TV I’m Looking Forward To Watching In 2017

I think that last year we saw so much good TV. I have always loved watching TV shows, I do enjoy watching a film every now and then, but TV shows have always played a far bigger role in my life. In 2016 there were so many great shows, some were new, others new to me and more classics which I’ve loved. Plenty are back for 2017, here’s what I am looking forward to on the telly this year.

Goodbye 2016 – Hello 2017!

What a year 2016 was!

For me personally, 2016 was a great year, it did feel like it at least. We did have a lot of sadness with so many celebrity deaths, lots of controversy and bad things going on in the world which just seems to be the norm now, everyone in the country got political with the UK leaving the EU and Brexit, then everyone in the world got political when Donald Trump won the U.S. election. For one reason or another, it was memorable, but I look back on a couple of the highlights positively and think it was a good year for me.

New Year’s Eve 2016 Playlist – Bangers & Hits

The Michael 84 Playlist

For December this year I’ve decided to come up with a playlist specifically for New Year’s Eve. That means bangers, party songs, club tracks and anthems. I usually only write a playlist with new music, but I thought I had to do a party playlist for December, and share some of my favourite tracks new and old.

So I have decided to split it up into a few different parts. Current hits, 90’s classics, random pop bangers and hip hop/RnB. That pretty much sums up all the music I like and that I think is good for a great night. If you’re looking to kickstart your New Year’s Eve before the main event, or even want a playlist for the night, here’s my favourite songs which I think will make the night go off with a bang.

Fenwick Christmas Window Newcastle 2016

fenwick-christmas-window-2016-1

It’s tradition in Newcastle to go and see Fenwick Christmas Window, they’ve been decorating it and dressing it for years. I’ve featured it on the blog for a number of years, and it’s been Alice In Wonderland, a traditional Christmas scene, fairy tale forest and a whole lot more. This year the window theme is 150 years of Beatrix Potter, and takes inspiration from the classic books and characters within them. The window includes The Tale Of Peter Rabbit, MRS Tiggy Winkle, Two Bad Mice, Kitty In Boots, Jeremy Fisher, Samuel Whiskers and The Tailor Of Gloucester.

Check out the images below, and you can also find the previous Fenwick Windows which I have covered here on the blog 🙂
