It was about 35 degrees Celsius on a Thursday afternoon when the vehicle I was travelling in pulled up to a gate in Aberdeen, West of Freetown. I chuckled and said to my drive “we don reach sef?”, which translates as “are we here already”. Either I was too busy on my laptop to notice the drove from IMAT (where I was stayed for my holiday), or the journey was much shorter than I anticipated.
By the time the gatekeeper opened the gate to let us in, I was already out of the vehicle and trying to figure out where the reception area was. I absolutely dislike sitting in a vehicle waiting for gates to be opened, drivers to park properly or even being held up in the Freetown traffic. In fact I do not like to be chauffeured around but as someone who cannot drive, I have very little choice in the matter. As a result, I try to spend as little time as possible in any vehicle. The minute I sense there could be a slight hold up, I am out of the vehicle walking towards my destination.
I don’t know how much you know about the The Moet & Chandon July Festival or indeed specifically the gentlemen’s day (if at all) but you need head over right now and visit their website to see how cool this event is. Ok ok not so fast, just hold on one moment before you leave my page for theirs. Please allow me to give you a quick foretaste gents.
London turned out to be great last week with the beautiful summer weather and great vibe that came with it. As you can imagine, I spent most of my time outdoors catching up with friends over a drink or two. However, the absolute highlight of the week was the grand opening of St Jame’s Market in central London.
I was chuffed to bits when I received an invite to the grand opening but was a bit taken aback when I looked up the location. The area which is now the market used to be heavily boarded up the last few times I was in that vicinity.
I kid you not when I say that London Fashion Week Men’s was not on the list of events I wanted to attend this summer. Having hosted Cuts for Him’s first Fashion Industry Insiders Event a couple of weeks before, I was on the road to recuperating and getting some much needed rest. As you can imagine, Hosting a event which caters for about 200 people was hard work to say the least. So I was perfectly ok with me missing LFWM SS18 and any other event happening around that time.
