HUBS| #MCM Styling with New Look

26/10/2014

Jeans - Krew/ T-shirt *- New Look / Harrington Jacket - SABBC (Old) / Boots - Red Wing
I don't think I've ever done a male fashion post before! Joe generally buys a his clothes from smaller street wear brands that he discovers on Instagram, he also loves skate-wear and hats. He's hat crazy!

For this post, Joe got to have a mini spend up with New Look, among them was this Breaking Bad T-shirt and a pair of skater socks. Joe loves Breaking Bad, so I was not really that surprised when it arrived. Once we finally started watching it, we went through all seasons in a few weeks. He loves Heisenberg - whereas I hate him, but there is no need to go there right now...

A lot of Joe's styling comes from various different source. He loosely follows high street trends, but is also inspired by punk, skate brands and bands. He's styled his T-shirt with a burgundy Harrington jacket, black skinny jeans and lace up leather boots. Let's not forget his Brixton Chapter Fedora.

What's your 'Man' style?

LIFESTYLE | MAIZY KITTY LITTER REVIEW

18/10/2014




It's no secret that I love my cats, and I'm a husband away from being a crazy cat lady. As any cat owner knows, as much as you love your feline companions, they can be a bit naughty / annoying/stubborn sometimes.

I was asked to review some Maizy Cat Litter*, as the name suggests it is made of 100% puffed corn kernels making it completely natural. On top of that it is compost-able, flushable and biodegradable. It is also unltra absorbent,omits minimal odour and free from additives or perfumes.


Before I talk about the product I feel I need to add some context. Sega, our first kitty, was bought by me from a colleague at a temp job 5ish years ago. When I got her we were told she was nine weeks old. We heavily suspect that that is not true. She has shown several signs that she was taken away from her mother too early. When we first got her she repeatedly attempted to suckle on Joes nipples, since then she has demonstrated that she was never taught to sharpen her claws and has toilet issues.

When I say she has toilet issues oddly, when she does to the loo outiside she digs a hole like a normal cat, Instead of doing her buisness in said hole, she rest her paws in it goes to the loo and covers the hole. She's kinda missed the point.

She also wees on the floor almost daily and flat out refuses to use the litter tray. Usually it occurs at night when we close the flap, but she also does it if it is raining because she doesn't want to go outside. We have a litter tray, Tobias only uses it if he is ill, otherwise, like most normal cats he goes outside. The tray is emptied regularly despite no one using it, we have tried all types of kitty litter/newspapers, got new trays, moved it about the flat and nothing ever made a difference.

So imagine the epic surprise I had when the Maizy Cat Litter arrived and Sega (who is usually scared of things like opening packets) gets all inquisitive about the bag. She usually only gets like this when I am cooking! Then again she loves popcorn, goes crazy for it so maybe it was the smell that attracted her.

But then when I changed the litter over in the tray she immediately walked over to it got in and went to the loo! Queue the Hallelujah Chorus. She has been using it sporadically in the last month and so far I have noticed no unpleasant urine smells.

Oddly *touches wood* in the three weeks since we got back from the cattery she hasn't had an accident once!

FASHION | A broken promise is as good as a lie| Wishlist #5

17/10/2014

Weekly Wishlist #5


Black short sleeve shirt / Topshop high waisted skinny jeans / Office chunky lace up booties / Chanel quilted handbag / Comme des Garçons comme des garcons hat / Jassen, £120 / Amethyst Stone Bracelet £20 / Infinity Bracelet By Hot Crown 

It's been a while since I have done a clothing wishlist - I'm not to great at doing regular post it would appear! This week it was announced that Slipknot and Korn are touring the UK. today tickets went on sale and no doubt were going in minutes if not seconds.

Although, I have only ever seen Korn at a festival, I have had the honour of seeing Slipknot at the Brighton Centre in 2002. I loved every second of it, but looking back at the photos, I really don't know what I was thinking when I got dressed! It's fair to say that my style has evolved with age. I'm hoping to take Joe to see Slipknot and Korn and with this in mind and my terrible fashion faux pas from the last gig, I decided to to do a wish list for the gig.

I've stuck to black mainly, black is a rock staple. I am loving the Topshop Joni ripped jeans, they are high waisted so will hold me in and the rips aren't too extreme. I've teamed it with this basic logo tee - because let's face it, who hasn't wanted to be a unicorn!

I am loving wool coats at the moment too and this one here. is perfect for keeping me warm if we go bar hoping before or on our way back to the train station. As for the ankle boots, the heel looks comfortable and would I really be embodying rock icons like Courtney Love, Tarrie B or Brody Dalle without a single bit of leopard print?

Young 2002 me would have shunned this beautiful Chanel bag, but being grungy doesn't mean you have to be drab, in many ways it is about the attitude as much as the clothes.

When you think about your younger years are there any outfits or trends you just cringe when you think about?
