Walking into 2016 like… Confident, Poised and Intentional

I don’t know about you but for me 2016 is the year of great breakthrough and consolidation. It is the year of more growth and maturity with the gifts God gave me.

For starters, I fully intend to raise my style game creatively to give you all a fresh and inspired perspective of C F Him. The idea for this year is to be confident, poised and intentional with my work on all fronts.

But before I get carried away with laying out my plans for 2016, I would like to use this opportunity to reflect on and share my appreciation for my family and friends who  supported me through 2015 on this journey. I am thankful to everyone of you for your contributions and encouragement in making this blog a success. In all this, there are two people I would like to say a special thank you to from the bottom of my heart, Charles (August child) and Rita (Colson Style theory) you have both been inspirational and I thank God for you. Charles your skills behind the camera are unparalleled and it is amazing how despite your busy schedule you always find time to do shoots with me. You add so much value beyond just clicking away. And yes, thanks for the countless tips on capturing the perfect image. Rita you have always been like my muse who I constantly draw inspiration from. Your creative eye and great sense of style has taught me a lot. I can always count on you for a healthy debate on my ideas and how to implement them. I sometimes feel as if I can’t put out my creative ideas unless I pass them through you first. I truly thank God for the two of you and I look forward to more amazing collaborations and most of all, a deeper friendship.

2015 was a year of sewing the right seed into C F Him and watching it grow. It has been a year that has taught me a lot  In many respects this blog and all that has come with it has been a full time job, staying up all night editing photos, planning style concepts and running and updating social media like my Instagram page. The truth is that I have enjoyed every bit of it barring a a few knockbacks and reality checks which every creative person needs for validation and perspective. I thoroughly enjoy the feedback and interaction I get from you the followers. Your views inspire me to work harder and better. So here is a big thank you for your support last year. Without you, C F Him would not be where it is now

So back to 2016 , for me my plans for the year can be summed up in two words. Growth and Maturity. This year is all about pushing boundaries and limits as far as style creativity is concerned. The plan is to also travel more so I can bring you all along with me though my blog, be more fit so I can share fitness tips and immerse myself into culture to create a discuss right here. I hope you are as excited as I am as I look forward to sharing it all with you.

Before I sign out, let me describe the look in the photos. I am sure you will have noticed the unconventional nature of the dress code, which is precisely my intention. This look is not about playing safe or conforming to the rules.

The aim is to take a pinstripe business suit to create a non-business look. Just in case you missed it, I did a post on business look called That business look.  In this piece I’ve changed  a couple of items from that look to create a brand new look. Up-cycling at its finest and most chic..

I swapped  the more formal Paul smith Loafers for a pair of military styled boots from Massimo Dutti. To highlight the boots, I rolled up my trouser slightly which removes any form of formality. With the green tie and green and white polka dot pocket square  and my mustard/yellow coat I make sure I get noticed by everyone. I mean the colour is vibrant and it is a statement piece by itself. I wore this beautiful coat over my shoulders to give the look that little extra edge.

Like I said, this year is all about being bold, confident, poised and intentional and I believe this looks captures that beautifully.

Happy new year everyone. Here’s wishing you all a wonderful 2016. Please continue to share my site with your loved ones and don’t forget to subscribe to my Instagram @cutsforhim and twitter @cutsforhim accounts.

C F Him in Istanbul – Hospitality and Food

IMG_3371

What can I really say about Istanbul that has not already been said many times over? The fascinating history of empires, its past religious crossroads, the connecting point between Asia and Europe and the list goes on and on. Everything from a factual and historic perspective is well documented. In fact, I urge you to check out an article I wrote a few weeks ago on the architecture of this beautiful city. I share quite a few photos of some of the beautiful landmarks and hope you like them.

See, I told you everything that needs to be said from a generic perspective has been said already. However, there are two aspects of my visit I would like to share with you all. This is purely from a personal perspective and can truly say I was blown away them. The hospitality and the food of the Turks is like none other.

Hospitality

I still cant get over the fact that the people of Istanbul were genuinely pleasant. From the airport upon arrival to checking out from my hotel, it was pure joy to interact with such polite and friendly people. This might sound a bit patronising but you would understand if you are from London where everything is a tall order. When I can, I always make sure I chose a decent hotel as I believe this adds a lot of value to the entire experience. Having worked very hard through the year with no time off, a was looking forward to the perfect hotel where I Continue reading C F Him in Istanbul – Hospitality and Food

Play hard after work: The weekend getaway look

_DSC0063

This is going to be a really short post in terms of words as i want you to focus on this winter look i put together. Without me saying it, it is obvious that the statement piece in this look is the leather bomber jacket. I absolutely love this distinctive jacket by BOSS for so many reasons. The lambskin is soft to the touch, while the polyester lining makes it cosy and warm. The wide fur collar do not only provide added protection from the cold but makes this jacket stand out to complement the winter season.

This look is perfect for your typical Friday afternoon straight from the office heading for a weekend away. To dress things down a bit, you ditch the first half of your suit for the leather jacket, whilst Continue reading Play hard after work: The weekend getaway look
