From the hand, from the heart

From the hand, from the heart

This is the first year I’ve really done Valentines Day properly and because I wanted to and as ever with me and Matthew we did it homemade style. I made him millionaire shortbread, an owl cushion, an embroidered heart and I painted a picture for his card. My favourite part about making these was making … Continue reading

V-Day, the new Valentine’s Day

V-Day, the new Valentine’s Day

Tomorrow isn’t just Valentines Day its also V-Day, a global day of action aimed to stop violence against women. I recently wrote the preview for the Liverpool event celebrating this and the figures amazed me. 1 in 3 women will be raped or beaten in their lifetime and with a world population of 7 billion … Continue reading

FAB Tea

FAB Tea

FAB sent me a £10 voucher to spend in their store so I thought I’d have a look and see if there was something that was around that price so I didn’t have to spend any more. If you’re a frequent follower of my blog you’ll know I love tea and their selection is super … Continue reading

Wouldn’t be seen dead in it

I really really really want to blog about the stuff I’ve been crafting for Valentine’s Day but being the supportive guy he is my boyfriend reads my blog so I can’t spoil the surprise! I also really want to blog about the birthday present I’ve got him but again I can’t so I was inspired … Continue reading

Not just a brand but a statement

Not just a brand but a statement

Streetwear has taken over in a massive way in the UK fashion scene in the past few years but is it really still streetwear? I’ve been exploring the idea of what streetwear is and how it relates to the music industry both at it’s origin and now. I’ve also been thinking about how the relationship … Continue reading

Gaining the AdVintage

Gaining the AdVintage

I recently had an article published by the guys over at Music Review Unsigned and thought it might interest some of my followers over here. It’s all about how to gain the advantage when you’re shopping vintage. Styling yourself vintage isn’t as easy as it sounds, there’s a lot more to it than picking up a … Continue reading
