In the past year or so there has been a recent outbreak in fashion trends and a new stereotype has been born. It’s the new ‘cool kid’ that male teens seem to aspire to look like up and down the UK – it’s the new thing (apparently)

Now at risk of sounding like an old man and a snob I will say now, this is a light hearted post and a mere observation of what I see on a daily basis in and around London.

So, the 5 signs of trying to hard:

5. You wear Beats by Dre headphones but they must be white, why? Because you’re cool and everyone has black ones duh.

4. Chinos are the new jeans. If it isn’t red or baige then forget it. For this I blame One Direction and the Rizzle Kicks.

3. You’re wearing a snapback just because.

2. The words “cool man” will be repeated after almost every sentence.

1. Shorts in winter, jumpers in summer and let’s not forget denim is a must.

Maybe I’m just jealous.

Hola, happy monday. On Saturday night I was a very lucky man indeed, I was at my girlfriends house and her mum makes THE best cheesecake in the world, in fact she even said that this specific one was the best she had ever made.

Today I was sorting my bedroom out, I’ve been home from uni for a lovely week and one day, boy was it needed. Seeing as I no longer use CD’s I (well my mum) deemed it necessary for me to give my CD area of my room a good old dusting and clean out.

This involved re living my childhood with the likes of S Club 7, Steps, Spice Girls, Atomic Kitten, Blue, Samantha Mumba and Bewitched all making a guest appearence to name a few.

There was also literally 100 promo CD’s which were way past their sell by date and headed straight for the bin. I found a few promo’s from Professor Green and Tinie Tempah which I’ve kept in hope I can sell them off for a few thousand in my later years.

The taste of summer graced my mouth yesterday, I am talking about a drink, the most popular in Brazil called Guarana Antarctica. My girlfriend who is from Brazil first introduced me to this drink. The only place I could get it was in Westfield Shopping centre in London but I got the news that it’s now being sold in Waitrose as well, I’m a happy man. I’m going to Brazil in April for a whole week, I know what I’ll be drinking.

I love Oreos, I love a good cookie, I also love them if they are bigger than a plate.

My girlfriend and I do our Valentines Day on the 12th. This year, seeing as we both love Yo Sushi we made chicken katsu curry, chicken teryaki, prawn tempura, miso soup and my surprise desert was chocolate heart brownies with homemade rasberry ripple ice cream. Try and beat it if you want.

Where have I been for the past few days? I don’t even know myself to be honest. I was DJing on Friday night and then it was a new week, no idea whats happened in between, maybe I’ve just become a recluse over the past few days. This is what I can remember doing:

Watching Ricky Gervais Science on DVD – Actually amazing, funnier than I remember it when I saw it live.

Started playing Assasins Creed 2 which I’m not sure about yet.

And er… erm.. I… OH, I keep trying to re connect my PS3 to the Playstation Network because It won’t connect for some reason and that is it. Living life to the fullest.
