Beauty & Fashion

So you just had your baby, first of all, I salute you, congratulate you, pat you on the back and frankly say “thank you” for showing all of us what real selflessness looks like. You just embarked on a 24/7/365 day job that doesn’t end but is OH so worth it. I can't speak from experience but I’ve been told that when the baby arrives, you simply forget all the 9 months of suffering (for some) and wine sacrificing and an enormous capacity to love unlike ever before pours out.

I recently attended a gala event for which the invitation stated cocktail wear. I decided to follow the dress code to the letter. But upon arriving at the event, I found many young men in attendance were wearing poorly fitted suits that did not flatter them as suits should. 

The autumn season is a good time to go through all the things you put away at the end of Spring. Time to see what fits, what looks great and what you should donate. It’s also time to update your look. You don’t have to replace everything, but just adding even one or two fresh items can have an amazing effect on your wardrobe.

The key to increase the longevity of your wardrobe is on-going maintenance. There are a number of small but important steps to adopt after each wear. Having invested your hard earned money into your clothing, these easy to remember tips will always help your clothing look better.

When I was in high school, there was this really popular song we used to dance to at parties. Went a little something like this; “Shawty had dem apple bottom jeans, bootz with the furrr, the whole club was looking at huurrr”. As you can see the lyricism was quite poetic and emotional.

If you’re a guy, I commend you for coming here because your fashion knowledge is about to get upgraded! Let me start by saying, this all started with a simple thought, “what outfits stood out to me on a first date” ? I can remember loving simple outfits that spoke for themselves, his fashionable Chelsea boots, his bracelet accessory, his blazer paired with a fitted shirt, coupled with a bold embrace of colour. All elements of a guy who knows a little something about dressing well. And finally the crowning element, his cologne.

I’m a fraud.
