Despite being a monochrome sort of boy, which I try to reflect in the photography on my blog, I couldn't resist uploading some pictures of when I visited this hidden little gem called Plantasia this week. Disregarding the rather embarrassing name it actually was full of some beautiful plant and animal life, including avocado trees and even endangered monkeys. I took hundreds of photos but I thought I would save you all the up close pictures of giant cockroaches as my face is probably scary enough for you guys haha.

Something I've been experimenting with recently is the concept of not wearing black skinny jeans everyday *puts hands to face and screams in horror at the concept*. No, but seriously for a boy who may as well have skinny jeans super glued to his legs for the past few years the thought of wearing anything else would have thrown me into a meltdown in the past. These neoprene Zara joggers however are kind of amazing and with the monochrome stripe detail and slightly cropped length they have actually been pretty easy to build outfits around. 

Not like you can tell via my lack of tan in any of these photos but I spent 10 days in Ibiza last month and lets just say, every thing you have ever heard about it being the most insane party island in the world is 110% true. At least I can check coming home from a night out at 8am off my non-existent bucket list I guess.

Oh and if you wonder what else I have been doing in between blog posts I update my Instagram and Youtube a lot more frequently!

MALCONTENT



While thinking of a title to name my posts I usually look through a list of words I've had to look up while reading a book in bed. Looking through I remembered 'Malcontent' -adj. 1. not satisfied or content with the current or prevailing circumstances and felt this more than fitting after the outcome of the general election after my first ever voting experience this week.

In other news, I very recently purchased this amazing silk look bomber jacket which I have been lusting for after seeing it on Instagram (you know the feeling) and have been obsessed with locating and buying it. I also recently decided to try a curved brim baseball hat after years of wearing flat-peaks. I used to think curved brims were a trend reserved for American dads who go and watch their son play baseball until I've been multiple bloggers I follow reinvent the style.

I guess it's true that trends are always on a cycle and as soon as something goes out of style, it reappears only years later. Lets all pray to god those diamond-encrusted tight muscle t-shirts stay in the fashion graveyard forever and are never resurrected.

Last weekend marked the start of 'Art Across The City' in Swansea, which I visited last year and saw the amazing Jeremy Deller piece which fortunately still exists. This year they added a few new temporary pieces which exist for the next 10 weeks, including a limited edition 'Joes' ice cream flavour (I mean coolest art piece ever?)

My friend Owain and I visited and had an amazing time which included eating food on the beach front, finding this amazing photo-spot in the Civic Centre and even soaking in some run rays while exploring the city and finding all the hidden art.

PS. Haircut C/O me and my mum drinking 3 bottles of aldi rosé and then thinking it would be a good idea to shave my head.

Ebullient



The sun was setting and my and my boo decided to take some photos.
As I upload this I am about to do my 9th night shift working retail over the christmas break, so that explains the lack of posts and general lack of internet persona that has existed all December.

Regular outfit posts and drunk tweets to return 2015.
