Anyone care for a shag? Yes, the vest does look a bit like the product of a battle against home furnishings, or maybe a llama; however, when it comes to vests, shag provides a lovely and ultimately fun alternative to the standard vest of fur, or dare I say…fleece? In any event, although it is a moderate faux pas, Continue reading

Harem Pants: You Decide ! by celeste

Everywhere i go i seem to run into harem pants of all shapes and sizes, and, surprisingly, gracing the legs of both men and women! But… is this ‘trend’ going anywhere? While some people can definitely look like divas in Harem Pants, the other end of the spectrum looks a bit like Aladdin role play… Continue reading

the second one from the left looks like a wolf

In coming back to the lovely town of  Saint Andrews, I (and probably all of you) have been startled by the paucity of heat both indoors and out. However, whilst glaciating in my flat i started sifting through recent 2010/11 fashion week photos online, and was thrilled to find that layering is in for this fall and winter season!

31st of December, 2004 was my first encounter with tequila. One bottle later, I was naked in a cold bath with my girlfriend and friend washing second hand jose cuervo *hurl* from my clammy skin. This was 10 o’clock, needless to say I did not welcome in the new year… it is with joy that i inform you my five year abstinence has been shattered by the wonderful world of premium tequila. In particular I am enthralled by a new discovery: Partida tequila.  Sweet and syrupy, with floral and citrus notes on the nose and a lovely gentle bite on your cheeks and tongue. Washed down with a sip of cold water, it leaves a beautiful natural sweetness in your mouth, begging you to drink more.

I love shotting tequila, you love shotting tequila, the word tequila is synonymous with party. But wait! This is not a tequila to be shotgunned. Premium sipping tequilas such as this one are comparable to fine wine. The Blue Agave which represent 100% of the sugars in Partida are cultivated for over 7 years on the Partida family estate before being hand harvested and turned into tequila using a combination of traditional methods and modern technology. Our recommendation is toss that bloody shot glass over the shoulder and reach for a rocks glass get a handful of some lovely cracked ice, and ease on in to the spirit with a Sombrerro and Pancho ready to experience the best that Mexico has to offer. Oh and by the way tequila is the fashionable drink this year, taking over its spirited rival rum. Prepare yourselves kids, could be a trend-setting messy one.
