2015 Chevrolet Silverado


As you can see the car I got to drive this week is an absolute BEAST and so fun to drive. 
The all new 2015 Chevrolet Silverado is a thing of pure beauty, not only does it pack a punch but it is also amazingly comfortable. The sheer size of the vehicle makes you feel like you own any road you join and also makes you feel like you receive some sort of respect from others drivers.

It's definitely the biggest vehicle I have driven and also probably one of the most comfortable. This is only the second Chevrolet that I have driven, the first being a Chevrolet Blazer which I owned in America in 2006, this Silverado has just rejuvenated my love for the brand.


Below is the vehicle in more detail from Chevrolet for all your motor heats out there:

Chevrolet Silverado Light Duty: New for 2015 
  • Eight-speed automatic transmission for the 6.2L V-8 (late availability) 
  • New exterior color: Deep Ocean Blue Metallic 

2015 Silverado Light Duty: Stronger, Smarter and More Capable 

  • Updated trailer ratings showcase Silverado’s strength and capability 
  • Available 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 leads segment in horsepower and torque 
  • A new eight-speed automatic transmission will be standard on models equipped with the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 

The 2015 Silverado Light Duty is engineered to be stronger, smarter and more capable than ever before. 

It features a trio of new EcoTec3 engines – a V-6 and two V-8s, a quieter and more comfortable cab, a refined interior with connectivityimproved ride and handling and ingenious solutions for managing cargo in the bed. 

The 2015 Silverado Light Duty will continue to offer trailer weight ratings up to 5,443 kg as it transitions to new ratings based on US’s SAE J2807 Recommended Practices. 

The 2015 Silverado Light Duty pickups are available in seven distinct trim levels, from a Work Truck (WT) to the premium level, High Country. 

Interior



Interiors tailored to truck customers 
The interiors of the 2015 Silverado LD reflect the same focus on form and function. The upright instrument panel, six-gauge instrument cluster and multiple storage options are tailored specifically to the needs of truck customers. Controls are functional, logically placed and easy to operate with work gloves on. Rear doors on crew cabs are larger, for easier entry and exit, and rear doors on double cab models are now hinged at the front for easier access, especially in tight spots. 


For those of you that prefer to drive big cars as perhaps it makes you feel safer on the roads, this is definitely the one for you. There will not be many other vehicles you face that will be sat higher than you, and plus with the amazing space and easiness to drive you will not want to drive another model. 

Also, Chevrolet's latest offer, which runs until October 31, gives UAE customers looking to buy a 2015 Silverado the opportunity to get a complimentary trim upgrade- which means extra safety, comfort and entertainment features.

Adagio Aparthotel Dubai



Dubai is known for it's luxury lifestyle and what you will learn quick about this fast paced city is that you will need some good rest.
Adagio Aparthotel located in Al Barsha is definitely a place designed with thought and comfort to let you kick your feet up and relax. All dotted around the apartment are unique pictures of Dubai keeping you aware of what beautiful city you are in and I really liked that about this place, the staff were also very friendly and catered to any need that I had.

The apartment came with one master bedroom and another well sized bedroom with two single beds as you can see below: 


The overall space of the apartment was very good, it came with one master bedroom one spare bedroom, a kitchen, 3 bathrooms and large living room dining area. 


I headed down to the gym and got a great workout in, with many machines to use and a large surface area. The pool was just outside the gym and although it only gets the Sun for a certain period in the day it was still very nice and relaxing.


As you can see from the picture above, the place is in a really good location, being a 2 minute drive from Burj al Arab and also a few minutes from Mall of the Emirates. 

All in all I was very pleased with Adagio and would recommend it to anyone looking for a home away from home.

ARABISKA Restaurant & Cafe


Arabiska Restaurant & Cafe was happy to host a table of bloggers for an amazing meal, and us bloggers were very happy in return.

I have not experienced food delivered in such amazing presentation in a long time. Along with the presentation the food also tasted exquisite.


I ordered the Shish Tawook chicken and it came out sizzling on this delightful BBQ. Before this arrived I had also been feasting on some delicious beef and cheese spring rolls.

The salmon on the right of the pic above and pic below seemed to be a bloggers favourite as 3 of the 5 of us had ordered it.



Here is blogger Paul Ramos from @thestylechoreo shot taken by Moe from @wetrentdstyle 

The staff were very friendly, and the menu was very broad even a fussy eater like me had a lot to choose from. Arabiska's entrance and inside decor was also very cool and trendy, giving off a very good first impression.
All in all I was very pleased with the overall experience from Arabiska and I highly recommend it to anyone.



Blazer- Topman

Shirt- Reiss

Trousers- Zara

Pedro Fall/Winter Collection



Pedro have released their Fall/Winter collection and I was on hand to view the amazing pieces.
A fixation of the merging of industrialism and style has transpired this season against a backdrop of sheer modernity.
In the above picture is the shoes I got to choose out of the new collection and I absolutely love them.

Refined designs in shape and form have been applied this season and a palette of understated shades- grey, black and navy; further accentuated with hints of highlighted colour in blue, red and yellow.


As you can see below is the bright stints of colour I mentioned they have used for their new collection, which I feel suits the neutral colours which pairs them.


Not only are their shoes a work of art, but the bags they have are equally as impressive, you can tell a lot of work has gone into the design and use of materials, along with a fair price range the collection is perfect for those who want to look the part and not break the bank!


The staple dressy oxfords and boots have been redefined in the merging of luxe materials from leather and suede with accents of neoprene in vivid blue to red, and glints of metal detailing. Also to note this season, emphasis on the sporty appeal can be seen with high kick tops, down to dressy sneakers with a mesh of materials and colour, tailored for the modern man. 

The guys at Pedro alongside The Apparel Group put on an impressive runway show to showcase how to wear their product in style as you can see from the following images;


Here is what I wore to the event:


Blazer- Ted Baker

Jeans- Levi

Bag- Pedro

Shoes- Pedro

COS A/W Collection!



Earlier this week I got to preview the new collection COS is offering for this Autumn/Winter, and as always it did not disappoint.

COS always has remarkable pieces and inspired by a Japanese theme, this collection is full of shapes and amazing materials.


The men's collection's details are reduced to their essentials, as in the resin sculptures of Peter Alexander. A grey wool blazer is collarless, and is held only be a clip fastening. It is worn with a felted wool apron for new masculine proportions.

Like I mentioned Japanese inspired cloths are used for single-breasted blazers, worn with kimono V-neck jumpers and T-shirts.


Other inspirations for the collection include =: Tara Donovan; Oscar Niermeyer; Koji Enokura; Susumu Koshimizu, and Oyvind Tangen's photograph of the multi-coloured iceberg.

I also got to meet up with my good buddy Paul Ramos from The Style Choreo.

Mercedes GLA 45 AMG



With huge gratitude and thanks to Mojo PR and SIXT Rent-a-car here in Dubai, I was privileged enough to drive around this beauty of a car around UAE's most sought after city.

This Mercedes GLA 45 AMG was an absolute joy to drive, with its intense bucket seats, red seat belts, firm steering wheel and an engine that will wake up your neighbours, this car right out of the gates made me feel like I was a professional driver!

The GLA shares its front-drive bones with the CLA sedan. The GLA is more all-wheel-drive hot hatch and is a kinder, gentler AMG than what we're accustomed to. 


The GLA has the same 2.0 litre turbo four as the CLA45 which is a monster that has 355 horsepower and 332 pound feet of torque, and takes 4.8 seconds from 0-60mph. That's quick!!!!

The best review i've read about the this GLA is that it is not a rally car wearing a tie and jacket, it is a deliriously fast pocket rocket Mercedes wearing a leather jacket and chewing tobacco in the back of class, ha....and I completely agree with it.



This car was an instant head turner and within 10 minutes of driving it around I instantly saw people taking out their phones and taking pictures as I drove by. 

The sleek, elegant yet sporty appearance of the car matches the sheer sound and velocity of the engine, and with this colour way of pearl white mixed with carbon, black and fierce red it is a car lovers dream!



The GLA's style extends into the inside of the car. From a design perspective, everything inside looks immaculate, especially the toggle switch gear shifter, the suede wrapped steering wheel and the cross shaped air vents.



For a test drive of this car or other models check out SIXT rent-a-car!

Paul Evans NY



Talk about an eye catcher ay?

These Paul Evans Oxford blood Stewart Penny Loafers are a stunning piece of footwear, and along with looks they are extremely comfortable.
I had these on for a mere 20 minutes walking around the mall here in Dubai and all I could see were people staring at the shoes, I felt like saying "Hey...I'm up here" ha.

I've always stated that it's very important to own good shoes, and believe it or not a lot of people make shoe contact before eye contact...or is that just me?

Paul Evans is a New York based company, but once the shoes have been designed they are sent to Naples, Italy to be constructed.



Paul Evans have a wide selection of shoes to chose from and I opted for these Penny loafers because the colour is something I rarely see and find that they really stand out. 

To check out more of their collection visit www.paulevansny.com or check out their products on their instagram at @paulevansny


The Stewart Penny Loafer- $349.00

Puma evoSPEED 1.4 SL (Sorry for the Delay Guys I have been travelling) :)


If you know me then you know I am football mad so it's always a pleasure receiving such beautiful things like these Puma eveSPEED  1.4 SL boots. 
As always PUMA did not skip on the packaging design and its a work of art. Once the boots are revealed they leave your draw dropped with how nice they appear.
They are also crazyyyy light in fact they are the lightest production model boot to ever grace a football pitch...weighing in at 103grams total. 



The boots are so thin, the experience you have once they are on your feet is pretty much like the feeling of a pair of socks on. 

It's like a feeling i've never experienced before with a pair of boots, I was almost scared to kick a football with them on without damaging my feet, but it strangely gave me some protection and support.

All in all, I am very pleased with these PUMA evospeed, and they are actually my favourite PUMA football boots so far!
