Gio Goi T shirts


The 2010 Football World Cup has got underway; therefore not for the first time this post has a football theme. Some of the greatest players in the World have descended upon the southern most tip of Africa to ply their trade. However, the life of a footballer does not solely involve the kicking of the ball. They also have to perform some strenuous modelling. These are some of the best dressed men in Football.

I wish I could afford this Sweater. The attention to detail is unbelievably which perhaps explains the hefty price tag. Elvis Jesus design some of the most impressive items of clothing around right now.

Gift Ideas

June 10, 2010

When it comes to birthdays for my mum and sisters, I can never think of what to get them. I spend hours scouring the internet thinking, “What on earth would they like?” However, I then came across the Abahna website. Abahna specialise in exotically scented bath and body products, scented candles and beautiful gift sets. I don’t have a clue what the name means but I like it. The site looks amazing as does the packaging which is most important of all. They have an eclectic range of bath salts, body lotion, bath foam and bath oils. Certainly one of these will be the perfect gift.

Bench Live!

June 8, 2010

One of my favourite clothing brands has just built a new micro site called Bench Live ( This new website has been launched to increase Bench’s brand awareness and help Bench promote their music heritage that they are heavily involved in. In recent years Bench has been associated with Festivals such as Manchester’s Parklife Festival, Creamfields and Liverpool Sound City. I’ve had a browse through the website and it looks great. Bench Live provides you with information about forthcoming festivals and music events. You can purchase tickets to these events through this site and the opportunity to take part in competitions in order to win free tickets. There are interviews with music stars such as Lisa Lashes, Paul Van Dyke and The Sunshine Underground. There are fashion tips to what to wear to these events with a link back to the Bench Shop website. Basically everything you need if you’re a clothes and music fan…which I am.

I watched this film over the weekend and I was blown away. I expected the film to be decent after reading some of the reviews but struggled to think how a movie labelled as a ‘Swedish vampire film’ could entertain so much. I am ashamed of my preconceptions. I will never start watching a film with any prejudice again. Without giving too much away the story is about a young 12 year old boy called Oskar looking for friendship but is constantly bullied at school. However, it looks as though his wish has come true when he meets Eli, also 12, who moves in next door to him with her father. Coinciding with Eli’s arrival is a series of inexplicable disappearances and murders. Whilst these events go on, a subtle romance has blossomed between Oskar and Eli, and she gives him the strength and confidence to fight back against his bullies.

What surprised me most of all was the talent of these young actors. Not at one point was I aware that these kids were acting. I was totally engrossed in these characters and this world. The title of the film at first I thought was a strange one, however after watching it seems really appropriate. This a great and at times creepy film that no one should miss. But do not mistake it for a horror. It is much more than that. A must see!

One look that will stay around for a while is the lumberjack look. These are casual shirts that are checked (tartanesque) and provides the image that you cut down trees for a living. I do like the look, it is just so common though. Absolutely everyone has one of these checked casual shirts. I am even wearing one of these shirts as I am writing this. I would wear these shirts more often it they were a bit more original. However, some of my favourites come courtesy of Bench who have a cool range of casual shirts.
