Sleep, Wear and Explore with The Original SLPY

Category: Fashion Comments: No comments

Masses of people left their tents this weekend after a bank holiday of fun, music and roughing it in waterproof pits of mess; and rather than bring home their substandard sleeping bags for a wash and a good airing out many were left behind with one destination awaiting them – the bin. Essentially your sleeping bag is just that; a bag for sleeping in, but who can resist the urge to venture outside and sit under the stars in the snugly warmth of down and the crinkle of crispy fabrics. Throw a festival into the mix of this lovely image and you’re destined for a mess.

The problem with sleeping bags is that they were designed for sleeping in and not venturing outdoors, walking around or being mobile, so when the SLPY made its appearance at this year’s Boardmasters festival in Newquay, Cornw...

Ray Ban’s vs Vans

Category: Beachwear Comments: No comments

Probably the most iconic sunglasses model in recent times is the Ray Ban Wayfarer, they have been chiselled into our fashion trends from beach to formal and is a 100% unisex style. This is why they have been ripped off by many a beach seller and competitor alike.

Pulling out a suitcase from the loft only to realise the zip is broken can leave you in a massive pickle, and struggling to beg or borrow one from a friend or relative.

People do all sorts of mad things to their luggage in a bid to make it stand out when they’re travelling. Standing there like a lemon and waiting for your bag to roll around on the carousel can be a long, stressful and boring task if like everyone else, your bag is uninspiring and plain black or grey. But the one thing that a lot of people forget is that it doesn’t always have to be like that...

It’s that time of year where it seems as though everyone is going on holiday; your parents, your friends and even your neighbours are probably jetting off to beautiful sandy white beaches or on adventure-filled getaways. Feeling a bit jealous? Don’t be, because the weather’s looking great here in the UK and you can still enjoy soaking up the sun in the back garden or the beach while looking as good as your friends overseas minus the sweaty back from resting on a sun lounger.

One of my favourite things about going on holiday is shopping for all of the new things I want to take with me; things like sun cream, all of your toiletries and most importantly – the clothes...
