Evening all, if you've read Sunday's post you'll already have a rough idea of what today's post is all about. As I mentioned in my previous post, I met Georgie and CJ from the Girls Club last Saturday, as the girls were in Manchester over the weekend we met up to shoot some killer content for our personal blogs and for the blog they run together, The Girls Club.

The Girls Club is all about creating, working together and collaborating with new and exciting people, along with brands and other bloggers. The main focus is to inspire and inform others through the content they create. I asked the blogging duo what their aspirations were for The Girls Club, they replied telling me that they wish to continue with their blog, and include a little more photography from their side. Plus shooting with others, interviewing brands, making new content and focusing more on videos. They sure don't want to limit themselves, new and exciting things are coming soon but for now they're still working hard with a new site to be unveiled very soon!

So since you now know the basics, I really should introduce you to the girls, CJ is the girl on left, sporting the incredible leopard print shirt, and Georgie is on the right, with the coolest hair I've ever seen. Right, as you've now been formally introduced, I'll let you in on their idea. The girls requested to wear a few items of Phix clothing, (the brand I work for). They're planning on curating together an outfit post across on their blog, on how girls can pull off and wear clothing designed specifically for men.

As you can see, this is exactly what they did, they both styled the shirts in their own styles and incorporated the shirt into their outfits. I really love how these photographs turned out. I think CJ looks incredibly cool rocking the White Leopard Velvet kaftan and the way Georgie wears The Lonely Hearts Kaftan is straight out of the sixties. The neon pink hair, shirt and pink flared trousers certainly makes for one killer look!

I asked the girls why they choose these specific pieces to style, Georgie said she chose it because it was bright and the shirt practically matched her neon hair and flares, and it also contrasted with CJ's fairly monochrome outfit. She commented on the shirt, mentioning she loves all the variety of colours combined together into one print, and simply loved the retro vibe! As you can see Georgie has gone for a baker boy hat and a brightly coloured look to compliment her personal style. She wears the shirt with confidence and this really comes across in the awesome photographs.

I helped CJ choose her outfit, as I knew she'd look great in a leopard print number, which thankfully was her favourite print to wear. This sure proves that girls can wear guys clothing and smash it whilst doing so! I'd even go as far as saying the shirt looks better on CJ than it did on me (and as you know love my animal print) I think accessories are a big part in making any clothing designed for the opposite sex look good, as it's all down to how you wear it and incorporate it into your look.

CJ had the accessories down, wearing a signature pair of shades and looking like the coolest woman on the earth, she really pulls the animal print off even better than I do. She also wears a super cool fedora, I wonder who she gets it from?

We all worked so well as the ultimate blogging team last weekend, creating some awesome content including taking some  awesome photographs as you can see, I even put together a short film of the day, you can check out in my latest YouTube video. Click below to watch.

You can also find our more about their thoughts on male clothing across on their blog The Girls Club. There's also (I'm told) a post featuring me, which will be online soon. Find The Girls Club on

Hey guys, hope you've all had a great weekend! Today's post is quite a short one, as I've literally just written it! (I know, pressure!) That, plus a huge hangover definitely doesn't make the best combination for writing, I can tell you that! After another crazy busy weekend here in Manchester, this has been my only chance to sit down and type up this post. Luckily I managed to get these killer photographs yesterday, when I met up with the super cool CJ and Georgie who jointly own and blog for

I want to split what I have to say between this post and Wednesday's post, as I have a lot of photographs to share with you all. We shot content for our personal blogs, before moving onto shooting content for The Girls Club, styling pieces from Phix's menswear collection. You'll have to stay tuned to find out what that's all about this Wednesday, where you'll also find this weeks YouTube video (sorry it isn't tonight!)

Anyway, back to today's post, I've not written and shot a classic outfit post for so long! I thought it would be the perfect post to create this weekend when meeting the girls. So with that in mind, I dove into my wardrobe and picked out an outfit that I bloody love to wear! I really believe it sums up my personal style perfectly. As well as encompassing a few of my signature pieces.

As you can see this outfit involves my go-to black skinny jeans, classic black leather biker jacket and, because it has been snowing pretty much all weekend here, a black turtleneck for that much needed warmth! I did however, give the outfit a slight twist by adding a short sleeve shirt on top of the roll neck to give that extra dimension and adding one of my personal favourite prints. Of course not forgetting my trusty hat and for yet another added detail, my silver chain mail scarf and collection of jewellery for the ultimate rock and roll touch!

I chose this look as I think it shows people who I really am, I feel this collection of clothes and accessories project my very own individual style at its best! Plus in the back my mind I wore it to try and impress two bloody cool girls I'd not met before! I wanted to create a good impression! Secrets out!

A big shout to CJ and Georgie for meeting me this weekend, I had an absolute blast with you two and hopefully you've enjoyed your weekend here in Manchester too! Stay tuned for Wednesdays post which I think you'll all find very interesting featuring the girls.

So yesterday marked my first month in Manchester and what an experience I've had so far! I've met a lot of cool people over the last four weeks and like to think I've made a few good friends too! In my short time in the city, I've started my new job, experienced my first gig, not to mention the bizarre turn of events that ended in my friend and I DJing one of my favourite indie bars in town. I still, don't know how we blagged that!

I seem to have achieved quite a lot so far and I know I've got a lot more to look forward too! Through collaborating with bloggers and photographers, I've managed to make a lot of new friends. Thankfully, everyone here is so nice, which has made me feel very welcome, very fast. Being surrounded by so much originality and individualism, makes you feel very positive and motivated! Manchester is just a hub of creativity!

I'd like to think I'm settling in fine, I remember saying before I moved, that "I hope Manchester is kind to me", and so far, it really has been! I was pretty worried before moving down about making friends, however, this thankfully hasn't been hard as I'd initially thought. After a few weekends spent socialising in the Northern Quarter I've managed to get to know quite a few people! Saying that you'd find it hard not bumping into others that share similar interests, especially in fashion and music and style! A big thank-you to all you Mancunian's for being so friendly and making an effort to come over and say hi, you've all made me feel very welcome!

Work is also going pretty well, I've begun mastering a handful of new computer programmes, which may I add, I've never worked on before! I feel that I'm improving every day and my video editing skills on Final Cut Pro are finally improving (the first week was the polar opposite believe me!) After three weeks of persistence, I'm getting the nack of things! I'm really proud of what I've produced so far, it would mean a lot if you could check out my style videos across on YouTube.

You can now get your hands on Phix Clothings new Union Jack Scarf I'm wearing in the photographs above, click the link to get a closer look over on their website - Phix Clothing.

Here's a video I made of the SS18 shirt preview. You can also check out the other videos I've made for the brand by searching Phix Clothing on YouTube.

The weather here in Manchester has finally taken a turn for the better! After a freezing couple of weeks, the current weather we’re all experiencing could even be classed as spring-like. Finally, we all can lose those large thick coats and bring out those lighter styles. This is exactly what I saw the other day, as I was walking down the high street. A guy passed me wearing a light blue denim jacket, which looked so bloody cool, he sort of inspired me to write this post. So if you’re out there, cheers pal!

This guy was wearing the denim jacket so well, it looked so effortlessly cool! I’ve not seen anyone in just a denim for what feels like such a long time! It was nice to see its reappearance worn alone and not hidden underneath a thick, bulky winter coat! He was sporting a Levi Trucker jacket that he'd buttoned all the way to the top, styled with black skinny jeans and paired with some killer black leather boots. I’ve not worn my indigo denim jacket since last autumn, his outfit inspired me to go dig my denim out from the back of my wardrobe and style it up for spring.

I own a few colours of denim jacket, but I thought I’d feature the classic blue denim in today's post as it’s the standard colour I personally think everyone should own at least one of. A quality denim jacket is a wardrobe essential, as it comes in so handy throughout every season in the year. Worn casually, or dressed up, a denim jacket can be styled for any occasion.

As you can see, inspired by the denim jacket stranger, I’ve styled my jacket up in a very similar way. My trusty black jeans and boots create a laid-back, relaxed look without sacrificing any of that much needed cool. I wore the jacket with a simple scoop neck T-shirt, which I always think works! Black or grey being my favourite two colours to wear with an indigo blue jacket. Buttoned up or worn open, a denim jacket can be so versatile, I always make sure one sleeve is unbuttoned to achieve that ultimate laid-back look.

The jacket I’m wearing in the photographs above is a denim I bought a few seasons ago from All Saints, I have however tracked down a selection of similar jackets online, which you can check out by watching this week's YouTube video.
