Gift Guide | For the Boyz 2 Men


Now it’s time to get something for the guys in our lives. Personally, I love shopping for menswear, some might say a little too much. I just think that most mens accessories and gifts are so well designed; simple and elegant, I often find myself wanting to keep the ‘boy’ gifts I buy, even more so than the pretty things I buy for my girlfriends! Go figure!

From the boyz to the manliest of men, here are my picks for every gentleman in your life. (I’ll try to keep my hands to myself!)

For the Stylish Fellow: Not many guys can pull off a hat, but for those who can, this Trilby is super fly!
For the Hipster: If your hipster BF doesn’t love this wood finish Radio,  I’ll totally take it off your hands!
For a Tropical Holiday : Everyone looks good in a pair of  wayfarers, they’re just so timeless!
For the Music Lover: A good pair of Headphones are a must have for the fellow who is always jammin’ out!
For the Adventurer: That guy who is always on exciting adventures totally needs this dreamy backpack.
For the Business man: Keep your career man on time with this simple and striking watch.
For the Gym Junkie: If there’s one thing an exercise enthusiast always needs, its a good water bottle.
For the Foodie: For the fan of finer things, grab a set of whiskey stones so he can enjoy them ice cold!
For a Stocking Stuffer: - in the most literal sense of the term, adorable winter socks to keep his feet warm.

SHOP | Print All Over Me

print-all-over-me Raise your hand if you have heard of Print All Over Me? I came across the site a few months ago but it was only this week that I actually sat down and had a look at what it has to offer.

It’s a simple yet brilliant concept: You can print whatever you like onto your choice of clothing style, for a limited time. Every three months new objects to print on are released meaning there is always an ever changing collection to browse. How cool is that?! I love it because it’s not just your basic Tshirt and mug combo you usually get from these kinds of services. There are some actual nice styles to choose from (the bomber jacket is probably my favourite)

Being a user submission service, let’s be honest – the vast majority of what I found was psychedelic stoner patterns, blown up photos of celebrities (SO much Beyonce and Miley!) and of course, random internet memes. But among all the craziness there are some real gems to be found! There is only a few days left on the current edition, so check it out!

This & That: Sunglasses & Clutches

Sunglasses & Clutch combo from The Iconic |

I have never had any luck finding sun glasses that suit my face. No matter what shape or size, they never seem to sit quite right, you know? Usually I look for aviator’s, because - well- you can’t beat a classic! But even then they have to be the perfect pair, which I will inevitably break or lose within days of buying.

What I need is a timeless pair of chic oversized sunglasses, like these. While I’m at it, why not pick up an equally stylin’ giraffe print clutch. (Giraffe print is the grown up older cousin of leopard print and therefore obviously superior.) Am I  the only one who has issues with sunglasses? Does buying them with pretty bags help to solve the problem in any way? (please say yes!)

Checking out the brand @

It is almost impossible for any regular readers of style blogs to not be aware of‘s wonderful products. I’ve long been a fan of their sequinned heart hair clips and glittery headbands, but I recently was alerted their new range of super fun every day products. Patterned cups, colourful carry cases, even giant pink diamond speakers (and who doesn’t need one of those!) is a candy coloured wonderland and I totally love it!

WINDOW SHOP | Gift Shop Brooklyn


clutch | card holder | keyring

Stumbling across Gift Shop Brooklyn was one of those happy little events that brighten your day! The store is full of wonderful goods designed & handmade in Brooklyn, NY by designer Annie Olean Bukhman. All of the designs are pretty and practical. Each is as aesthetically appealing as that you might in a up-market designer label, only Annie’s designs are completely afforadable and a little more special as you know you are getting a product that was quite literally made with love. Hello my one stop shop for a birthday wish list!

Window Shopping 01


top / pants / clutch / necklace

Window shopping is one of my favourite pastimes. I don’t care if it is in person at the mall, or in my PJ’s with my laptop balancing on my lap; I just love lusting over pretty things! I usually end up putting together a whole outfit in my head (because God forbid I buy a solitary piece!) I always end up mish-mashing together a group of pieces from all my usual favourites. Does anyone else do this and if so where are your favourite places to ‘window shop’ online?
