Can you believe this is the last in the current run of my Vision Express collab? Don’t fear, though, the deal has been extended and there is going to be loads more VE content on the blog, we actually have some awesome ideas so keep your eyes peeled for content and announcements!Read More
One of the big parts of every outfit is shoes, which shoes are appropriate to wear, heck it’s a big task getting a whole outfit on point. If you’re spending a day on the family yacht or around the marina and yacht club…you really want to be looking your best.Read More
Mallorca literally feels like a distant memory for me…I am back in the UK getting paler by the day thanks to the British ‘summer’ - for the past couple of months I have had a wicked collab going with Vision Express and there’s still loads more to come from that so keep your eyes peeled. Today though I thought I would show you another pair of specs I got from them at the start of the summer!Read More
As you guys will know from my social media activity, I’ve been well and truly sunning up a storm on the beautiful island of Mallorca. Before I headed away, the lovely folks from Marks & Spencer reached out and offered to send me a pair of David Gandy’s hugely popular swim shorts he designed for M&S’s in-house brand, Autograph.Read More
Some of my top summer travel essentials include a good sun-cream or oil, a few pairs of shades and of course some crazy on-point outfits! When I was looking around for some summer outfits, Blue Inc was one of my first stops, the kind folks there actually gifted me the clothes I wanted so really and truly, it them you’ve got to thank for all of the stylish summer shots that have been floating round social media! Read to the end for your chance to WIN…I am way too good to you!Read More
I have to wear glasses all day every day, when I was younger it used to wear pretty thin, I couldn't wear the sunglasses everyone else had and quite frankly, a looked like a rip-off Harry Potter…those round wire glasses were the story of my childhood, I got my first pair aged four…I was literally walking in to things before, my parents didn't know if I was blind or just plain thick…no need to comment on that one.Read More
As you’ll all be well and truly aware, I currently have a huge collaborative partnership with Vision Express going on. The lovely folks there have given me a huge range of glasses to shoot and style and use throughout my blog posts this summer. You may also be aware I am currently in Mallorca soaking up the sun, when you put the two together…you get one heck of a sunglasses photoshoot!Read More
If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know I have recently become a big fan of Sunset Sons, their music is seeeeriously good and after being shortlisted as one of BBC’s ones to watch for 2015, I am predicting big things for them over the next 12 months. They are a part British and part Australian band, the rocky, indie style is really cool, pretty unique and they really manage to do songs that sound different each time, it isn't like every song they write is the same!Read More
Now, I don’t want to alarm you or speak too soon BUT it seems like summer may have *finally* arrived! As I write this, the sun is shining and the sky is relatively blue and I am definitely getting in the mood to head abroad. I have been banging on about #FuelMySummer for ages and this post right here is the actual launch of it! I originally didn't really know how to kick it off, I wanted to do something pretty cool to get you guys involved. A giveaway, right?!Read More
Believe it or not, this right here blog post is the very last Daily Post…for now! As you know…and if you don’t then you need to work on some loyalty…my huge big #FuelMySummer blog segment is kicking off this actual week! It’s a super exciting time where I fuel your summer with not only fantastically engaging content but cool images and photography and of course a heck tonne of giveaways!Read More
I don’t know about you BUT the weather lately in the UK (also known as summer…it doesn't tend to hang around long!) has really given me some summery vibes. As you know, my HUGE blog series #FuelMySummer, which…FYI isn't going to be daily, so there will be a couple of months of non-daily (but still effing amazing) content starting next-actual-week!!! I’ll be kicking things off in Squire style by giving something away…that something is pretty bloody epic and is going to fuel your summer in a very stylish way indeed…enough of that.
I thought I would put together a quick guide to Six Summer Suitcase Ssentials (essentials, but y’know…alliteration and all that) - check out the below list and make sure you have all of these items ready to pack for your sunshine getaway!
1. Shoes Glorious Shoes…
What’s a suitcase without a few pairs of stylish and occasion-appropriate shoes - from a beachy flip flop to a sophisticated boat shoe you need to be packing multiple shoes to make sure you’re set for any situation…you can’t wear a trainer on the beach and a flip flop in a bar sounds foot-stompingly painful (in a stylish and literal sense). Don’t forget your espadrille, too…leave the Birkenstock’s where they belong - the bin. (One hopes a ‘croc’ doesn't even come in to the equation).
From days in the pool to laying on the beach, your hair really takes a battering - well, it would if you didn't whack some Scaramouche & Fandango Shampoo in your bag! It cleans deep and leaves your hair super fresh - perfect for if you're headed out exploring for an evening!
After a day in the sun and of course after having a shower (probably with S&F’s Shower Gel) you want to slap on some Scaramouche Hydrator to keep your face fresh for the evening ahead…a flakey nose shouldn’t be on anyone’s agenda! Click here to shop Scaramouche!
4. Picture Perfect
Wherever you’re planning on going, you no doubt want to document the whole thing…Kodak wind-up cameras simply aren't acceptable, who even has the time to get film developed these days? Not this guy! I am pretty much in love with my £98 GoPro Hero - this camera is in their brand new camera line-up, it shoots HD, takes pics and is fully water proof and dirt proof…this is really going to come in handy this summer!
5. Sartorial Shorts
A drawstring swimmer is perfect for around the private pool, but if you’re headed out and about, with the chance of a dip in the sea - make sure you’re looking super dapper and naturally stylish with a pair of tailored swim shorts - I know I have mentioned them before BUT David Gandy’s M&S collection is literally everything you need…I have rather excitingly been sent a pair by the lovely folks at Marks’ and the quality is amazing…full post on these coming soon. Make sure to click here to shop the collection
6. Getting Some Shade
You know what they say…only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun. Something I will of course be adhering to, we all know that is the best tanning time. Whilst you’re (responsibly) tanning yourself you don't want to be getting all that sun and glare in your eyes…it’s actually super bad for them! Currently EXCLUSIVE to Vision Express, the Ray-Ban Flash Lens New Wayfarer are a really cool matte Wayfarer with literally the sickest lenses you have seen, they’re bright, colourful and vibrant flash lenses - you HAVE to check these out…only £99, too!! Eyes peeled for a post on these very soon!!
I hope this helps you pack wisely…and remember, if you’re packing your suitcase…roll, don't fold!
