If you do what you love, it is the best way to relax. Enjoying a glass Glenmorangie, a sofa, a book and feeling privileged to be taking photos whilst making whiskey based cocktails. @glenmorangie have teamed up with wooden surfboard designers @grainsurfboards to create limited edition surfboards made from ex-Glenmorangie casks - check them out!

Bologna hues. The old town streets makes for a perfect backdrop. Revisiting photos from my recent trip to Bologna where I took photos with @etonshirts. I personalised each shirt online before ordering; making sure the size fits me (I'm tall and rather slim) and I added my initials on the cuff to add a sentimental touch. I liked how crisp the fabric was with this shirt and it had a more modern look. I do like to look smart whilst on city breaks. It was quite a busy few days in Bologna but the quality of the shirt stood the test and I'm sure I will own this one for many years. Looking forward to the partnership with @etonshirts in the future.

Do check out the link on my profile to have a closer look at the range of shirts on offer.

Taking time to enjoy some tranquil moments at my sisters cabin just outside of Stockholm. I recently teamed up with @etonshirts, who happen to be founded in Sweden in the 1920's, and used the opportunity whilst here to take photos whilst wearing one of their custom made shirts. The quality and sustainability of Eton shirts, whilst still remaining timeless in appearance, really appeals to me. The shirt is well made and durable and as I am always on the move this type of craftsmanship is ideal. I also picked the shirt above, The Eton Signature Dots, due to the soft texture and for its contemporary look; I often like to wear shirts with jeans or chinos.

@finnharries getting creative and playful at the MINI LIVING Urban Cabin in Beijing.

As you may also be able to interpret with the range of photos within the gallery post reflection was an overall theme of the cabin. Through is golden, telescope like mirrors the Urban Cabin reflects nature, modern architecture and the inside of the cabin which reflects the traditional living space of a traditional house set within the Beijing Hutongs.

See my Stories highlights now to get another look within the Urban Cabin.

@cocodavez bringing out her inner child on the swing within the MINI LIVING Urban Cabin in Beijing.
This was actually my first interaction with Coco but, along with her infectious smile, the swing within the Urban Cabin invites exchanges between the person using it and the people queuing to go next and surrounding it.

The Urban Cabin which is built all within a space of 15 square metres was designed in cooperation with local creatives and architects @penda_china and, like its Urban Cabin predecessors, was built to reflect the city it was built in.

Excited to be back in Beijing for the first time since around 2005 (!!) I'm here by invitation of @mini.living and their Urban Cabin project which is in place for Beijing Design Week presented at the House Vision. Before heading over to check out their latest inhabitable space I decided to spend a few days exploring Beijing to get to know the city, scout out the lay of the land, see how much the city has changed and evolved, and ultimately gain different perspectives of the city and the people ahead of having the #UrbanCabinTour.

Without a doubt this will be my favourite sunset of 2018. The initial intention was to head just to Bologna but then I decide to use the opportunity to extend the trip to get to explore lesser know parts of the region. I spent hours researching smaller towns and places less touched by tourism and I came across the hard to get to (you’ve got to drive some winding scenic roads to get here) places. The sunset was one to remember but also the excitement of exploring the cute little town. When we were there there was local beer festival happening and in the main square I think we must have been the only non-Italian tourists. This was confirmed as a couple of people did stop to talk to us and ask us about ourselves and why we were there. After years of traveling I have moments where I find it hard to be as enthusiastic, if I’m honest, but trips like this remind me why I love it so much and remind me how there’s still so many places and cultures to get to know.

Finding the best vantage points across the city. Had fun exploring and shooting with @tomsuk in Italy. This is a brand I've always valued due to their "One for One" policy where with every purchase they give a new pair of shoes to a child in need #travelingTOMS

Perfect place to chill. What an absolutely stunning city Verona is. I was just there for an evening but I took a thousand pictures of façades and ate a thousand scoops of ice cream. What’s your favourite Italian city? They all have so much character. I think mines Florence but I’ve still not made it to Rome 😯

These two seats right here, in the middle, those ones. They’ve got our names on them. — and I defo choose the turquoise umbrellas as it matched my shirt 💅🏻
