Five Real Ways To Lose A Guy.

A while back I saw the movie 'How to loose a guy in 10 days' If you're not familiar with it, it's about an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. An NYC journalist covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." Although I know it's morally incorect and cruel my curiosity took the best of me. To write this blog post, like the movie what better way to know how things would workout than to experience it for my self. Theres a lot of things most guys would not be honest about. The fact is there are real things you can do to loose a guy if your not careful and it can happen to you. I know its really wrong of me to list this and I know people are going to call me a pr*ck for saying all of these things, but I’m trying to help you. I’m not here to tell you what you want to hear, I’m here to tell you the truth. Better have a bruised ego now than a broken heart later. Toughen up and pay attention.

Loose your looks 

Start gaining weight, stop dressing up, stop doing your make up, stop doing your hair, just stop giving a crap about what you look. If your already wearing a lot of sweat pants in front of your boyfriend, your half way there. Dress like a slob as much as you can and he’ll be out of there. Oh and remember stop shaving everywhere! Make him forget about the hottie he first met. You don’t need to be a model but you do need to maintain the same level of beauty from when you first met. In an ideal world looks shouldn’t matter but in the REAL world they do. At the very least, men think putting in the effort is attractive. Men are visually stimulated, thats an accepted fact, most of you who are reading this are emotionally stimulated. Just an example, how would you feel if your guy stopped being the gentleman he was when you first met? EXACTLY. Keeping men visually happy is no less unreasonable than keeping you emotionally happy, it's all about effort. Rug burn during sex is awesome (insert sarcasm) 


Nag him about everything, be sure to nag him about anything that aren’t really important in the big picture but are “important to you”. Blow things out of proportion and always sweat the small stuff. This will really help to start arguments over nothing. Your relationship will be over in no time. Remember nagging your man constantly will remind him of his mother. And of course men loves being nagged by their mothers. So go ahead nag him out of your life! 

Be Negative

Complain about everything. Your friends, your family, your job, your clothes, your hair, everything! B*tch, b*tch, b*tch, b*tch! Make sure that listening to your complaints and supporting your misery is his second job. Don’t make him just your boyfriend, make him your therapist. It's ok to share your problems with your guy BUT if you talk about your problems 24/7 prepare to be single!

Don’t be fun to be with

Stop smiling, laughing, and stop having a good time. This way when you guys go out and he sees other couples having a great time, he’ll be sure to remember what he’s been missing. Lastly, most importantly and most obvious…

Stop having sex

Be sure to never be in the mood, and make sure that when you do eventually have sex, make sure you make him feel like it’s an obligation and not because you actually care about him. Here are some bonus points, stop all physical contact, stop all affection, stop holding hands and stop kissing. Don’t even refer to him with sweet pet names, just have no warmth what so ever so he will go running to another ones arm. Men need sex and affection, it is a primal need. If you are not boning your man he is boning someone else. 

Now this list may sound really superficial but guess what, have you ever met a guy?! We are superficial. We are dumb stupid animals, and guys want to be around some one who makes them happy. That is the bottom line. Unfortunately for you, guys don’t put as much time on loyalty or "time serve", if you don’t keep him happy he will absolutely leave you. He wont tell you the real reason he’s leaving you but I will. He will probably feel bad about leaving since you have “history” but do these things and he will still leave. Any man who denies this is a liar who is telling you what you want to hear which is a good sign. It means he loves you enough to spare your feelings. If your man has said any of these things to you without sensitivity and even used these as a threat to leave then he is a selfish d*ck. Leave him. Yes, I’m being an insensitive prat here but hey I’m not your boyfriend.

But through out the pain, hurt, inconvenience and nuisance you have put him through and in the end this person is still there hanging on to you, your relationship or a potential romance then maybe, just maybe you have to step back, look at the bigger picture and change your outlook on this person. What ever your reason is for wanting to leave, think Where you stand with him, would you be sad when he finally leaves? Are you passing up 8’s to snag a mythical 10? I know theres a lot of you out there that will say “Hey I don’t have the time to keep him happy, well you know what? You don’t need a man either. If you totally neglect what a man really want, you will have all the time in the world cause you won’t have a man anymore. And thats the truth.

Country Song On The Juke Box This Summer

The spring/summer season is now firmly upon us, so what does that mean for fashion trends in men’s clothes. Well, town really does meet country this season, cosmopolitan boys around the world will be donning their checked shirts, throwing on a pair of camel-coloured boots, and strutting their funky bumpkin/preppy stuff throughout the urban jungle.

This is great news for most of you guys, because you will not have to rush out and buy yourself a completely new wardrobe. Rather, this trend is borrowing from recent fashions, but with twists and turns to bring together a whole new look. This recent movement is neither townie nor country, taking from both to create a new, exciting, and unique style that will produce incredible results when pulled off successfully.

The country feature of this new style comes from the traditional, upper-class look. Plenty of plain white Ts, as well as the lumberjack/tree-feller style shirts are big news this season. Bring out your checked preppy, geek-chic, shirts for another year; they fit perfectly with the country/townie look, giving a completely new identity to these men’s clothes. Great news then as there is no need to rush out and buy a number of new items, last years are perfect, feeling current and fashionable. Make the most of it, because that isn’t how fashion trends normally work.

Now we come to the town side of the fashion; bring out your chinos, the bright coloured trousers stashed away at the back and possibly even your braces when feeling brave. The successful conjoining of town and country will put together a flair of the outdoors with the tailored, slim-cut, geek-chic look. Keep your skinny jeans to hand as this summer they are perfect – team them with large, oversized denim shirt on top of a tank top and finish off the outfit off with either bright coloured sleepers/sandals, or a narrow pair of boat shoes – depending on whether you lean more to the country or more to the townie tendencies of the modern world.

Remember, simple with a touch of bright pastel colour is key this season, do this by layering the upper portions with shirts, jumpers, and waistcoats – this will give an extremely masculine air to your silhouette. Clearly, you should not be too excessive in your layering (a maximum of 2 layers at a time as a general rule), otherwise the look you create is too ‘busy’ giving a confused appearance to the outfit.

Colours are of particular interest this season; boldness being all the rage – if you are brave enough opt for brightly coloured chinos, make sure to pair it with a neutrally coloured top half. When it comes to colour schemes, bear in mind: only wear one item of bright clothing, if you elect for a bright shirt, then wear neutral coloured bottoms, and vice versa – too much colour, and you risk pulling off a country/townie/clowny look – fashion senses are not sophisticated enough to cope with that cacophony just yet.

What's Going On

Hello world! It's been a while since I've blogged. It's not because I've been lazy but because I've been super busy with life! So finally came back to uni two weeks ago and it has been a brilliant two weeks so far. This was the outfit that I wore last Monday. Last weekend I had to go back home because finally the clothes that I've ordered, which took two weeks prior finally came.

It was actually good timing because that day snowed! Heavily may I add. Usually I'm not the one to wear a full black outfit but that day I made an exception. I'm in love with my new trench coat. A few of you may remember that I posted a selection on Facebook of which coat I should buy, heres your answer! I couldn't be any happier with the choice and most of you chose this one anyways. Hence the reason why I chose to wear all black, because I wanted the coat to be the main attention of this outfit. 

Ever since monday I've worn black outfits almost everyday because I just adore this coat, The Herringbone pattern is flattering to the figure, the cut of the coat is also lavish. This was the first time I've worn these shoes in years. I've had these shoes for more than 3 years and its only been worn once every full moon, it worked so well with the outfit that I had to wear it, I was going for the "Sheek" look

This is me and my "home girl" Sheena last Thursday at uni, I absolutely love her outfit and had to take a picture with her, I came unprepared so I had to use my iPhone to take the picture. Don't we look like a power house couple? haha! Winter coat in a weather like this is bliss. It's been snowing all week. Pure white everywhere.

Creepers Gonna Creep, Embrace your inner punk.

Creepers are becoming a big trend right now, and in the next few months it will get bigger and bigger. I might be a bit late on the bandwagon with this one but creepers have been praying on my mind for months! When they first crept on to the scene (see what I did there) I was unsure if they were for me. As cool as they looked on others I never thought I'd pull them off. I decided to give them a shot though and I'm so glad I did. These classic black suede ones are from well its complicated (A few of my fellow students would know the whole facade). But You can see my exact pair here. There are a whole host of creepers available on this site, from the classics to studded or leather versions. 

History? 'Brothel Creepers' as they became known were originally worn by soldiers of WW2 based in North African deserts. They wore suede boots with 'crepe' soles. Many ex-soldiers continued to wear the boots out to certain nightspots in London which is why they became known as "brothel creepers". The shoes were then adopted in the late 50s by Teddy Boys and have been in and out of fashion ever since - gaining popularity with all types of subcultures. Interesting stuff!

Mainly I have been pairing them with my black stretch skinny jeans, what I've noticed is if you're a guy and have chunky calfs like mine, the best way to style this is by wearing something white or bright socks and fold your jeans like I did on the pictures to even out the shape of your legs. This is just my personal opinion but I think guys with skinnier physique legs could pull this off more than guys with body structure like mine. In the autumn months I'm planning on wearing them to Uni with shorts. They're so comfy to walk in (although I haven't covered any serious ground in them as of yet) and add a edgy look to any outfit. They are a lot lighter than I imagined as well which means they don't feel heavy on my feet after a day of wear. Visually they are a seriously beefy shoe. But this supposedly means they create a flattering illusion of a slim long leg due to the chunky contrast.
It's my first venture into anything flatform as well. It's not that I've been avoiding the trend it's just the trend seems to be avoiding me. I've not come across any flat forms that I truly like (apart from my white doc martin boots which gives me blisters when I wear them.)

The majestic,cool & the plain silly

Jacket: River Island
Tank Top: American Apparel
Black Shirt: Tom Wolfe
Trousers: H&M
Boots: House of Fraser

So Today I've decided to do the military look, I've had this jacket for a few years now & I feel like its never been out of fashion. When I first bought it, back in 2010 Military fashion was just taking off so at the time people didn't get the whole look, and I was pretty much the kid who wore the weird clothes, or maybe it was just the city I lived in (Peterborough). Soon enough the whole military look went off a craze all thanks to Chezza. Would you believe that I got those boots for only £3? Yes I know I was shocked too! It was on a sale at House of Fraser, it's crazy thinking it used to be £120. I mean its 2 size bigger but hey I have to have it. 

Monday! I used to hate mondays, but rescently ive been falling inlove with it as it's pure fashion design lesson. Today a lecturer from London College of Fashion came in to have a talk about footwear & accessories spec drawings, which was really fun!

Then we had a talk from a second year Helen Kirmkum. She is one of the coolest girl I've ever met! she's already done so much in her two years of being in uni, she's inspired me in a way to work harder & achieve goals that I've set up coming into university. She had work experience for some high end London based designers & traveled the world all expenses paid by Northampton University scholarships which hopefully I'll win! I've leant so much from her and her experiences. She also thought my fashion & footwear designs were good and compared them to one of the third year student who's doing foot wear design, who has won numerous prestigious awards, so that was a confident boost on my end.

The rest of the day pretty much consisted of sketching spec drawings, a lot of chit chats with the girl friends and taking vanity pictures of our selves. 

I just came from Volleyball for three hours of training, then straight after that was Cheerleading. Yes I'm a cheerleader. Meaning I'am completely shattered. Therefore I'am going to end it at that, so I can relax have a cup of what ever juice I have left then go to sleep! Good night!

Lets Go Preppy

V Neck Shirt: Top Man
Cardigan: American Apparel
Tartan Trousers: H&M
Shoes: UNLTD

Thursday being the last day of the week for uni only meant one thing. Work shop! This week I started footwear design, which I enjoyed very much. Compared to the last two which are fashion & textiles, I would say this has been the most enjoyable one so far. My teacher was so relaxed and easy to talk to, she is so fun! which makes learning easier for me & got so much done. I can honestly say that she will be one of my favourites. On top of that everybody in class seemed to be getting along, we were making jokes & just talking really. Pleasant day ended with a nice catch up session with the best friends.
