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.

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!
