“Discover a Unique Watch collection that reflects the ability to adapt to your busy lifestyle and to be as versatile as you need your accessories to be”

Lately, this Summer I was lucky enough to preview the new watch collections by Nordgreen Copenhagen which I am delighted to keep discovering new brands on the market for fine watches and accessories. You will really appreciate the simplicity of modern minimalist Danish design and its origins of Scandinavian lifestyle.

The brand kindly offered to reach out to me to review one of their watches as I’ve been a great fan of Nordgreen Copenhagen for a while now and always on the lookout for the perfect watch to compliment my daily attire. I decided to choose the Native dark navy nylon and rose gold mesh stainless steel straps to style my weekend off-duty look and really pleased with it that I made the right choice. It even comes with a beautifully branded tote bag that’s made of eco friendly materials you get complimentary with every order.

“With a NORDIC MINDSET on design, contemplation comes first. I look for MEANING before I design anything. Then I turn to NATURE for INSPIRATION, searching for the most harmonious expression. I carefully design every component individually to be part of the whole and to respect the materials and function. That’s how I try to reveal the essence of the watch. I prefer to leave a SUBTLE SIGNATURE on the products I design and invite the person to live with it, as an open-ended story.”

Nordgreen’s Chief Designer Jakob Wagner, 2020

With this in mind, did you know that you can choose your case colour and dial along with a strap style to suit your preference of the ideal watch.

Here’s an interesting fact for you. I discovered Denmark is a global leader in green technology advancements, pioneering change and inspiring nations across the world to follow pursuit in favor of reducing environmental carbon footprint. For Nordgreen it’s not only about their amazing watches but sustainable initiatives to saving the planet. You can find out more about the Brands Giving Back Program where you can send them your old used watch which they service and repair it to sell on and find a new owner. You can count on sustainable luxury whereby Nordgreen partners with Danish manufactures abroad to ensure overseas production adhere to the highest levels and Danish labour practices for corporate social responsibility.

Find the Perfect Gift

I was actually looking for a new watch for myself or a gift for that special someone or occasion and personally recommend the Nordgreen Native model because it’s considered one of the best sellers in the range.

Give a Stylish Accent to your Attire

Nordgreen Native Watches come in 3 different sizes to that it fits all types of wrist. Here you can see I’m wearing the 35mm with Dark Navy Nylon Strap.  To view all sizes in stock please check out the Nordgreen websites homepage. Trying on the Native Men’s Watches it really redefines classic timepieces where the contemporary sleek design and subtle details deliver timeless watches that will never go out of style.

For me the Nordgreen Native is the perfect balance between striking elegance and fine detailing with Japanese time movement. These watches are ideal for a style statement that stands out from the rest and fits into your everyday lifestyle.

Nordgreen Watches are as versatile as it gets to make a first impression from day to night. Make the Native Watch your own when you can select between three dial colours black or blue and plain white, including silver, gunmetal and rose gold casing. With Nordgreen you can make a statement where ever you go or even if you just fancy staying in at home.

Don’t forget to explore the bundle gift sets just because on some occasions, one extra strap is all you need to create a versatile look with your attire day in day out.

Make Nordgreen Native watches a great addition to compliment your summer capsule wardrobe outfits. Not only is the Native watch by Nordgreen unisex but well balanced-just see for yourself here.

TED BAKER MENS GROOMING CHRISTMAS COLLECTION: FLIGHT OF FANCY GIFT SET | REVIEW

Unboxing the new Ted Baker Travel and Body range for Men - Take Flight with Ted’s new Pashion Toiletries Gift Collection

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 1min read1803 views

Merry Christmas guys!, I just wanted to remind you that the countdown to Christmas begins less than 3 weeks away and if like me you’re still hunting for the ideal gifts as presents I’ve come across these amazing Christmas gifts set from Ted Baker London.  Just the other day I had the pleasure of receiving a gifted parcel from the brand and what a surprise it was being so close to my Birthday last weekend which made my day. Ted Baker unveils their exclusive Christmas Gift sets for the Festive Season at Boots UK available to buy now in store or online.

Design led, on trend and highly giftable everyday treats that lead to No Ordinary Experience.

I’m a great fan of their menswear and lifestyle products too which includes also grooming and accessories.

I recently discovered the brand also has various standalone Barber Shop’s Ted’s Grooming room where you can experience firsthand the finest grooming by Master Barbers such as authentic prestigious Turkish barbering skills inspired by quintessential British style.  I’m very keen to try this out as I’ve heard you will enjoy the best haircut in London to Traditional Wet Shaves.  Ted’s Grooming Room offers gift vouchers, Hair products, gift certificates and more to satisfy even the most dandy gentry debonair about town.

 

Expect and invest in fine new formulations at Ted’s Grooming Room that burst with active ingredients’ including making a long lasting impression with Ted’s invigorating signature cologne perfected in London and inspired by Turkish aftershave.

It’s a good job then that Ted Baker has released its Festive Gift Set’s just in time for Christmas and my favourite pick from the limited edition range exclusive to Boot’s UK has to be their ‘Flight of Fancy’ Men’s Grooming Kit. What I love about this range is that this gift set comes equipped with everything a Ted clientele needs, including a manicure set to keep you perfectly groomed on your travels.

In addition the set comes complete with graphite black hair & body wash plus matching fragrant body spray that has an invigorated scent with aromas of enticing smoky spiced blend of pink pepper, tobacco and rich cedarwood for the man on the go.

The Eagle illustration on the packaging cleverly suggest it’s a gift set for made for travel as you can see where flight of fancy gets its name from. It’s definitely for those who love to jet set and travel on vacation either for business or pleasure making it the perfect travel companion as an addition to refresh your grooming kit.

Ted Baker began life as shirt maker during the late 1980’s in the UK as quintessentially British Brand with its presence in over 380 stores and concessions all around the world.  I would definitely say that Ted Baker’s Lifestyle Collection should be part of every discerning man’s lifestyle from his wardrobe to essential grooming routine from distinct clothing collection to accessories to dress yourself or your home.

Make Ted Baker a must have style statement for your bathroom this Christmas, with design led, on trend prints and fashion inspired colour pallet. I have to say that trying on the men’s grooming ranges deliver both formulations and compelling fragrances with a contemporary edge taking the lead from fine fragrance.
