Favourite Brunch

Giraffe 

This part of my Friday Favourites starting to look like Favourite place in Richmond but well…There are lots of great places in Richmond I guess 🙂

Last Sunday we desisted to have a brunch at Giraffe.

Even though it was packed with children and it’s obviously favourite family destination for Sunday I really enjoyed. Interior is colourful with art work on the walls. Just how I like it

You can choose from lots of yummy things but i opted for Vegetarian breakfast which was so delicious.  Their dessert menu is I-want-it-all and I really liked special Sunshine Coast ice tea  with ice cold chamomile & green tea with mango, lime & fresh mint

Another plus is that meals are very cheap.

Favourite Hair product

Tresemmé Perfectly (Un)done

As you may have noticed I’m a big fan of Tresemme,all products are great,solving all my hair problems. Now when my hair is untangled finally I wanted to do something about my too straight hair! I know,lots of girls would kill to have straight hair without fighting with hair straightener but you now,you always want what you don’t have . Even though there is whole collection Perfectly undone at the moment I’m using just a foam and hairspray. So basically this collection is created to help you achieve effortless summer wavy hair. It’s for those women who already have wavy hair to help them  style it easier and for those who have straight hair like me

Converse are the best mens casual shoes
Part 2 of our guide to mens fashion is going to focus on shoes

Welcome back to The Fashion Mannequin Blog on Men’s Fashion from the perspective of all of you long suffering girlfriends, in this guide we are continuing to talk about all aspects of Men’s Fashion from ensuring that you boyfriend wears perfectly fitting men’s clothes to getting him looking his sexiest in a suit.

So what have we learned so far?:

If you read Part 1 of our guide to Men’s fashion we talked about how important it is to get the right fit on men’s clothing and we also talked about the importance of brands when it comes to dressing your boyfriend.  Now that we have covered off these really important points, we can start to focus on the best ways to get your boyfriend looking his best in any men’s style and look at what he should be wearing. But…

There is so much to cover, where are we going to start?…..

Every girl knows the secret to a man looking stylish is in a good foundation. So in today’s guide we are going to start at the bottom, looking at shoes, that’s right, dress shoes, formal shoes, sneakers, trainers, casual shoes and colours, and how to make sure they are comfortable.

Right now you might be thinking:

How can I afford everything that you will recommend?  Well I’ll also give you some men’s fashion buying tips so you can find a deal or two when shopping for these items and make some great savings.

How to buy men’s shoes that will make you weak at the knees

You know how it is, you always see a well-dressed man on a night out only to look at his feet to discover that he’s wearing the most hideous pair of shoes you have ever seen in your entire life, you shake your head in horror.

But, you should know one thing:

It doesn’t have to be this way, look at our top tips in this section on men’s shoes which you can start to use right now to buy your next pair of shoes, and it applies to all shoe styles all the way from men’s casual shoes to men’s formal shoes.

However, first things first:

If you don’t get the fitting right, then you will never get a pair of comfortable men’s shoes. A guy can only look his best if he’s comfortable and confident in his stride, so he needs a pair of comfortable men’s shoes, and in order to do that you must must must get the fitting right.  We spoke about this a little in part 1 in our guide to men’s fashion.

Seeing as this is so important, I’m going to give you some amazing tricks on getting the right shoe fit that you can use right away.

Tip 1: Get help from a salesperson.  Sorry ladies, but if you want your partner to look his best, he needs professional help and if he wants a pair of comfortable shoes, that means he should get his feet measured properly.  It’s not difficult to do, simply pop into a shoe shop like Clarks and speak to the sales assistants, they will be happy to measure your feet properly.  If your boyfriend is a keen running enthusiast/sportsman, try going to a branch of Runners World and they’ll also be able to measure him up.

Tip 2: Measure both feet!  Men’s feet (like any other feet) aren’t the same size, so make sure to measure both feet for the most accurate measurement and try on both shoes!!  This will ensure that he always buys the most comfortable men’s shoes.

Tip 3: Comfortable shoes are in the heels, get him to use his index finger and slide it down between his heel and the heel of the shoe, if it can fit without having to force it, CONGRATULATIONS!  You are on the way to finding a comfortable pair of shoes.  If the finger doesn’t fit, then his shoes are too tight, and if it goes in too easily, then the shoes are too loose.

Tip 4: Wiggle wiggle wiggle.  His toes should be able to move around freely in his new shoes, and if he presses on the toe with his thumb, then he should be able to easily feel a space between his toe and the front of the shoe.  Using force to feel the gap?  Sorry, he needs another better fitting pair!

Tip 5: The most important tip is about the arches of his feet.  He can’t do much about these as he’s born with them, but it doesn’t have to mean that he won’t have comfortable shoes.  If he has odd sized feet (see tip 2) then buy a slightly bigger size and buy an insole, these are inexpensive and can be bought from most high street shops like Boots, and Superdrug.

So now you’ve got the fitting right, what shoes should you buy?

There are a range of different options, so I’ve put together a couple of recommendations for shoes that I think are great for different occasions, and some ideas of where you can buy these from and for how much so you should be able to find a pair you like at a great price.

Favourite Scent

Giorgio Armani Sì

One of the most unusual fragrances I’ve ever tried . The top notes are Sicilian bergamot, mandarin oil and liqueur de Cassis, so that’s where the citrus smell comes from. The heart notes are Rose de Mai, Neroli and Egyptian Jasmine, which gives it a bit of a floral component. The base notes are Patchouli Oil, Blond Woods, Amber, Orcanox and Vanille Absolute, and that is what gives this fragrance a sweet woody warmth.
