What I like, what I've seen, what inspires me, everything about fashion. Lifestyle, celebrities and parties, if it is here it is because I was there.
All my posts are not sponsored in any way, all the products I've written about are featured because I like them and because I've been invited to press events where I've seen them.
Sunday the 18th of June is Father's Day and maybe some will think that a post written now is a bit early, but with the hectic life we lead and very little spare time, it is better to look for a gift now rather than end up the day before with the usual tie or socks. Yes socks and ties are featured in this post but they are very stylish and not something grabbed at the supermarket and chucked in the trolley.
Dr Martens is an iconic British brand well known for its punk/rock boots in various colours. But Dr Martens has got a range of shoes that are classic as well as having all the details of the Dr Martens that we know. The Oasis suede three eye brogue in mid blue and chestnut are made in England in partnership with CF Stead & Co and its suede. From the same range you can find the Arthur Oasis suede boot in mid grey. www.drmartens.com
A young dad might appreciate this Classic Redford messenger bag by Gola in nylon. This is another British brand that has been present for decades, actually with Gola we are talking about a century, trading in trainers. This messenger bag is great if daddy is a cyclist or uses a scooter to go around in the city. www.gola.co.uk

Sporty dad? Nothing beats a S'well Bottle where he can keep his drink hot for 12 hours or cold for 24 hours. The patterns are beautiful and the choice is huge, you can go from the very colourful ones to this set in black and white. www.swellbottle.com
Christy's Hats has been making headware since 1773 and it is an iconic British brand.

This gorgeous Oxford laptop briefcase by Australian brand Jekyll & Hide is made of butter soft and beautiful leather. There is an inside iPad pouch, a main compartment for a 15" laptop, space for chargers and other tech essentials and pockets at the front and at the back. I love that vintage look. www.jekyllandhide.com.au

These two power bracelets from Thomas Sabo are really great. The skull detail and the matt tiger's eyes beads or matt obsidian beads make a powerful piece of men jewellery. These beads are known to be protective talismans and they are inspired by the Buddhist prayer beads. The skulls are in sterling silver. www.thomassabo.com
