[Lifestyle] Fashitash x Aubaines Restaurant

The humorous hashtag that is #Fattitect, is for the food dining addict that loves presentable food. Assembling my creations, photographing Art before it is indulged, is just my mechanical process of working. So what is it that is on the menu this London Fashion week? I jumped to the occasion, collaborating with Aubaines French Restaurant to share my designer Fashitash Desert. 

Besides all the delicious Fashion Week taste testing, I can now say I am the X factor critic of cake judging.I remember the first time I was asked to grow a mustache, my immediate thoughts were impossible. Here I am several months later, embracing the grooming and stylish, yet humorous sartorial Moustache Fashitash cake. Oozing with Hazelnut Creme, Milk chocolate with an additional Almond Biscuit Sponge to combined the textures together, it is surely going to satisfy your devilish sweet tooth. Best part is, you don't even have to worry about the calories.

It would make my life if you #FASHITASH to be on your selfie insta-hit list, as the desert will be available in the Aubaines Restaurant at 31 Dover Street, Mayfair from the 12th- 16th this Month.

[Press] Featured in Vietnam Teen 2!Magazine

It was only 3 months ago in June 2014, when I travelled to Saigon, Vietnam. To be recognised by your own ethnicity whilst your abroad, is an achievement in itself if you ask me. To be interviewed, photographed and featured in their September Issue of 2!Magazine which is the Vietnamese Teen Mag. Although I still feel like am in my teens, at 22 it's appearances in my lucky asian genes to help maintain my youth. Not a bad way to start a morning, when your fan spots you in a magazine before you get an email right.

[Travel] Spain with Orlebar Brown

Last minute escapes to Marbella Spain, waking up to a new destination and discovering that you woke up on the beach. The relaxation quality outdoor time, without the need of schedules, time or stress (apart from the packing, taxi's & hotel managing). From hotdog legs to the occasional selfies whilst holding a cocktail, spamming the feed with holiday scenery; we have all done it. Leaving the 9-5pm hours for a better lifestyle, absorbing the sunlight and roasting ourselves like Chicken. The reality is, it all becomes a flash back dream when your like me, working through thousands of photos that you've snapped on your trip. Visually, the seaside atmosphere was just one you have to experience, matched accordingly to Orlebar Brown's designer swimwear range. The photographic memories captured in the clothing connotates the infectious holiday vibes, so you are never too short of looking forward to your next escape. I was sure to never be out of place, infected with colour, patterns and bikini's galore, or let's say keeping it natural.

[Lookbook] Suit Situation

[3 Piece Suit] ASOS Tailoring [Keeble 4 Blue Velvet Loafers] Russell & Bromley AW14 [Shirt] Dolce & Gabbana [Tie] Next
Besides the fact that my social media feed is jam packed with ALS Ice bucket challenges, there are other ways of keeping refreshed. I am indeed cooling or attempting to stay cool surrounded by scorching heat and blue skies in Spain, Marbella where the heat is 30ish degrees. My first ever three piece suit by ASOS in cobalt blue, which I am some how surprised to see that Size 32/24 Blazer sizes even made it on the list. Perfectly fitted like it was a bespoke tailored suit, the needless hassle of alterations and adjustments to the slim fitting combination was far off my regular to do lists. Visiting my tailor somehow becomes as expensive as the suit itself, as we all know model sample sizes to me just doesn't make the cut. I can probably argue for more slim fitting smaller suits to most brands for all the skinny, average figured men like myself, but then again I am only one of the many men that buy's new suits every month. It can get to the point when there are so many blazers, how do you choose amongst which to choose if there all 50 shades of blue or the business man's Sartorial kind of suiting? It's the staple human expression like it is the mood of the Spanish weather.
