Travelling is one thing i love doing whenever i can. The fact that i live in London, which is relatively close to major cities in Europe is a blessing in itself. I did quite a bit of travelling in the last two years and this year will be no exception. This year, my first destination is Barcelona. In fact, i am sitting in my hotel room as i type this article this very minute. Literally walked in and thought i should drop a few lines. I absolutely love Barcelona for two main reasons which are food and architecture. Anyway don’t get me started on Barcelona yet, as this article is about what i carry with me when i travel for short trips.
If you travel as much as I do then you would have, at some point during your travels, arrived at your destination only to realize that you have forgotten an important item of use, and probably taken stuff you do not need at all. There is nothing more frustrating than packing your 200ml Terre d’Hermesor your 250ml Tom Ford tuscan leather (which may well be more expensive than your flight), only to be told by airport security that you can’t take it with you as it exceeds the fluid limit allowed in your hand luggage. Ouch. This is generally caused by packing at the last minute or simply not planning your trip properly. Not only is it a massive inconvenience to not have the things you need with you, it has the potential to send your travel bill sky rocketing as you purchase these items.Continue reading Overnight bag: everything you need for a short trip→
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.
If you remember correctly I wrote a blog post last month about my Sunday routine as far as dress style is concerned, and named it Sunday best. If you haven’t read it yet, I suggest you go back to it (here) and acquaint yourself with the history behind the routine. This blog post is a continuation of that post which is the second of a three part series on Sunday best.
I do not exaggerate when I say Sunday is my favourite day of the week for so many reasons. More than anything else, going to church to listen to my pastor’s sermon and fellowshipping with friends afterwards is a perfect way to start my week. It truly sets me up spiritually and mentally as it serves as a springboard from which the rest of the week flows. Continue reading Sunday best – 2→
Friday is one day in the week which seems to bring a sigh of relief to many especially those who work Mondays to Fridays. Its means the weekend is finally here and we can afford to do the things we enjoy doing (with people we love) and when we want to do them. We can even put our feet up and do nothing at all if we so choose. Amazing isn’t it?
Friday is that one day we can actually walk into the office with a pair of chinos without raising eyebrows. But wait, there is a name for it and it’s “Casual Fridays”.
In the spirit of casual Friday, let me share a few looks on men I came across in London over the past three weeks or so. These looks fit perfectly into the work environment depending on what you do.
– The first look is by Sez, a look I’ve being channelling all summer. Blazer over shorts!
Blazer – Burberry
T Shirt – Ralph Lauren
Shorts – top man
Loafers – Alexander McQueen
Pocket square – Ted Baker
– Second is by David and here is what he wore.
Blazer – Asos
Shirt – Reiss
Jeans – Top Man
Shoes – Aldo
– The third shows a couple of mates sitting in a park enjoy lunch. The honest truth is that I actually forgot to ask what they wore so you will have to forgive on the details and just enjoy the vibrance of the summer colours in the pictures.
