Men’s skincare

DSC03700

Considering i’m still in my teens it is no surprise that my skin has been through a lot with waves of bad skin. I have noticed over the past 6 months my skin massively improving. I feel like this could be due to me finally taking care of my skin. Before then I literally never cleansed/ exfoliated/ moisturised my face. Sometimes it can seem like such a big mountain to climb that you don’t even try. Also i’m sure like many of you I have always been very sceptical and disbelieving of skin products.

My skincare routine may work best for me but may not work the best for everyone, I strongly believe it is down to trial and error. I will leave them all linked below.

This cleansing / exfoliating kit from Vanity PlanetΒ is great. One machine with different attachments can be used to suit you and your skin problems with attachments to exfoliate, cleanse and even a body body brush for ‘bacne’.

Side note: Carmex is a dream I use it 3 times a day, especially good for the winter months.

If you have any questions about any of the products I use feel free to DM me on my Instagram

A little self-love at Christmas

Considering it is coming up to the end of 2017 and I have been wanting these babies the entire year, I finally took the plunge.

I tried to get these at Bicester Village in the summer which of course weren’t there. So I had a little look on Selfridges and Harrods this week and they wasn’t there (the stress). Then I found them on Mr Porter (which I love by the way; their website, service and delivery). So of course in a panic I bought them. Many say impulse purchases are not a good idea but I say surely you must love the item a lot if nothing stops you from buying it.

 

These are the classic Gucci ace sneakers with the bee embroidery. I’m so bloody excited to wear them and I know they will be surgically attached to me in spring. So I hope you won’t get too bored of them because I won’t !

How to spruce up your winter wardrobe?

 

DSC03389I don’t know about you but I find in winter I struggle to feel the same level of content with my outfits than in the summer months. I believe this is because when its cold you have to wrap up meaning, you can only see a big coat. Hence why i’m a big fan of winter accessories, especially scarfs! Which you probably already knew if you follow me on Instagram:Β kanehuxley1

Here are a few of my favourite winter accessories & as you can tell i’m loving the tanned theme this winter. (All items linked below)

By the way these gloves are the best i’ve had. They are so soon warm as well as stylish with the suede leather.

Thank you again for all of your continued support here and I hope to be more consistent with my posts over the rest of winter.

Keeping warm in Notting Hill

DSC_0731

The crisp autumnal trees, tall white picture perfect houses and not to mention the amazing food. This is why Notting Hill makes a perfect day out. The scenery here was too good to not have a shoot withΒ Bala.

At this time of the year on a sunny day a thick coat is not always so practical but neither is a thin jacket and a tee. Which is why in these months I pair a warm jumper under a light jacket you might wear in spring.

I love this new jumper from Zara (shock), it is a deep warm colour perfect for the autumnal months.

One of my favourite restaurants is Farmacy which is a health / Vegan restaurant with the best aesthetics! Not to mention the food (I Highly recommend the nacho bowl).

P.S. If you are in the area there is a recycle clothes shop called Traid aiming to change the way of shopping and waste. You can pick up amazing bargains from brands including Acne studios to Reiss.

Thank you for you continued support everyone, it means a lot!

And breathe… A Family Sunday

DSC03282

Sometimes it can get all a bit too much & we can put too much pressure on ourselves to get everything done whilst being a perfectionist. When you don’t achieve this you can feel deflated and disappointed with yourself. I have learn’t that to do everything and to a high standard is impossible. You just need to do enough.

(Outfit details linked below)

I missed a blog post last Sunday for the first ever time. Even though I haven’t got a large following (yet) I take my blog very seriously as it is something i’m passionate about. It was literally impossible for me to get content that week. I would rather not post than to post something that I didn’t feel that I liked. I realised I needed to accept that and get other stuff done.

So, this Sunday I went home and what a lovely Sunday it was. After not being home in 5 weeks it made me realise that you can take it all for granted.

Sometimes you just need to breathe, take a moment for yourself in order to get back into things.

Monochrome look book (kind of)

DSC03129

So this was supposed to be a monochrome look book but everything is basically navy. I am obsessed with navy this autumn it adds such a stylish and elegant look to your outfit in the colder months.

So instead this is a more of a showcase of some of my autumnal pieces and how I style myself in this awkward weather, that is cold in the mornings and warmer in the afternoon. The key is LAYERS!

This navy Zara jacket is perfect for this time of year. It is structured (and navy of course) with a green quilted texture on the inside. My favourite aspect to this jacket is the chrome hardware. I picked this up in New York the other year so I doubt I will be able to find this one for you, but i’m sure there are plenty of similar items at the moment.

DSC03120DSC03119

I teamed all of these outfits with a white ribbed jumper from Zara which has the perfect structure. I think that in winter items structure is essential. This look was a more of a smart casual attire using a black blazer from Topman and a Hugo Boss navy and black scarf. One thing I have to say is I use scarves a lot at this time of year it adds a little bit of sophistication to any outfit.

I have been looking for the perfect cropped (navy) trousers forever!!! I found that to get the right fit for cropped trousers has been really hard to come by. I came across them when I least expected it in BershkaΒ !(find them here they were such a bargain)Β I’m in love with them and makes a change to the usual jeans but still can keep your legs warm in autumn.

 

You cannot go wrong with a bomber jacket in this season. I bought this from Topman, not only do I love the fit of it but also love the embroidery on this jacket. Not to mention it is so warm. This can add more of an edge to your outfit whilst still keeping in classy with the simple monochrome colours.

I hope you all enjoyed reading this one, I really enjoyed making this blog post especially as it is my first shoot in my new town of Brighton. If you have any feedback please let me know. Oh, and don’t forget to read about my BALMAINXH&M wallet giveaway on my last blog post and on my instagram to see how to enter.

The Collaboration… H&m X Balmain

DSC02888

Ok, so this collaboration was probably the most popular and if you were like me this is when I first knew that h&m collaborated with a high end designer every year for an exclusive collection.

I was so excited for this because of the detail (and quality) of Balmain clothes but at a more affordable price.

The pieces…

DSC02889

I went there with the items I wanted (of which none I got) but also loved what I did get, the preview didn’t do them justice. Keep this in mind for their new collaboration with Erdem next month – Who by the way have never before released menswear until this collab. The panic frenzy for the Balmain collar was insane and I believe that Erdem won’t be as popular but I think the collection will be amazing and less chaotic.

P.S. I will be doing a giveaway of this leather BalmainXH&M wallet when I hit 1k on my Instagram. I will be posting a picture on there so like it and follow to enter πŸ™‚
