How’s your year been so far? Any major highlights?

2015 has been one of the most challenging and rewarding years in my experience to date. I started my blog in May, so every day I’m learning something new and trying to master multiple crafts. I put off starting my blog for years because I was afraid of what other people would think, and this was the year I put an end to the negativity. I still have a lot to learn, but just doing it, starting, taking the plunge has been one of the most gratifying decisions I’ve ever made.

What song have you got on repeat at the moment?

Send My Love (To Your New Lover) by Adele. You can find me jamming out (and pretending that I can sing) to her new album more than I care to admit.

What’s the most important thing about a guy’s style to you?

I know it sounds cliché, but confidence. If a man feels great in what he’s wearing, everyone else will think so, too. Man or woman, style is all about owning an attitude.

What fashion advice do you have for a man?

Wear clothes that fit properly. Confidence always comes first, but if you’re having trouble feeling comfortable in your style, head to the tailor and have them make adjustments to your favourite pieces. It makes such a huge difference when clothing fits like a glove.

What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?

Am I allowed to say clothes that don’t fit well? 🙂 Personally, it’s a no-no if I see heavy stitching and detail on the pockets of denim. Some people like it, but I vote no.

Worst dating experience you’ve had?

My boyfriend took me to a really nice restaurant for Christmas last year, and toward the end of the date, he told me he loved me for the first time. I responded by accidentally shattering a crystal wine glass all over the table, which was met by startled eyes from people all over the restaurant. So it wasn’t a HORRIBLE dating experience, as it was an exciting step for us, but the shards of glass all over our white tablecloth were pretty embarrassing.

Any major plans for the rest of 2015?

My major plans for the remainder of the year are to plan for the next. I have some really fun things in the works for my blog, so I’ll be diligently preparing to pull everything off without a hitch!

Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?

Aaron Paul. I’m in the middle of watching Breaking Bad, so he’s on my Instagram radar right now. I love his effortless look. You can tell he’s not trying to hard, and that makes it all the better!
