Rebel Heart

Against the Grain…

Everyone who knows me knows that I like to march to the beat of my own dram. Well… Actually… DANCE to the beat of my own drum! *prances his way through life* Ever since I was a child, I was always doing things differently and expressing myself unlike everyone else. I always felt like I didn’t fit the mould and was often causing trouble than just ‘going with the flow’. Finding my place in Lithuania was almost impossible because if you’re not ‘normal’, then you don’t belong here.

Luckily, after graduating from school, I had the opportunity to move abroad and discover my true potential. The first few years were quite bumpy but after a while, I shaped my personality and became the person that I am today.

Expressive Combination.

A couple of weeks ago, I visited Thomas Sabo flagship store in Mayfair to pick up two men’s bracelets that perfectly match my personality and compliment my current style. I’ve been very impressed with their designs and an extensive selection of bracelet.

For those of you who are not familiar with Thomas Sabo, this men’s jewellery brand is known for their sterling silver men’s bracelets and bangles, which are the perfect must-have accessories to complete both smart and casual outfits.

So, without further ado, here are my top two picks:

MAORI SKULL: This bracelet is a symbol of power and strength. Skull Bead is decorated with patterns inspired by the legendary Maori tattoos. The handcrafted details of the centre bead create an artistic surface structure. It gives the iconic bracelet made of matt, oval beads its special feature. I’ve been wearing this one almost every day since I got it because I feel like it guards me against trouble. *rebels without a cause* Also, I’m a huge fan or large accessories because they make me feel so empowered. So, it’s a must-have accessory for those who look to wear darker tones and bold textures. Think leather jackets, heavy boots and ripped jeans! *already plans his style for autumn*

LITTLE SECRET ANCHOR: This hand-knotted, colourful textile bracelet is ideal for versatile combinable styles. I often wear it with my matt black watch or a chunkier bracelet. *checks out the pictures* Just like the Maori bracelet, it’s also a symbol of power and strength. All thanks to the anchor pendant. Therefore, this little anchor bracelet is perfect for those who are looking for a lightweight hand accessory.

Street Edition

Label 5 Blended Scotch Whisky pop-up event at Boxpark Shoreditch with Graffiti Kings. Blog by Skirmantas Petraitis.

Whisky and ice and everything nice!

My interest in whisky really evolved after I’ve graduated from university. Long gone are the days when I was living for a glass of Jack and moved onto a more sophisticated range of blended scotch whiskies. *self-proclaimed whisky expert over here* For some young man, whisky is a way to adulthood. It’s an experience that is different each time you enjoy a rich taste of it. *pours himself another glass*

I was so thrilled when Label 5 invited me to their pop-up event at Boxpark Shoreditch. I had the opportunity to taste their blended scotch whisky, as well as trying my hand at graffiti art under the guidance of Grafitti Kings. *instantly becomes a fan* Grafitti Kings once ran a workshop for the cast of Suicide Squad. Therefore, I was writing down all the questions I was about to ask them in preparation for my one-man Harlequeen show. ANYWAYS, back to street art… *scrolls down*

One of the highlights from this pop-up event was my hands-on experience at a one-to-one session with the world-leading street art collective Grafitti Kings. As someone who has never sprayed paint on a wall, this was a rather amusing activity!*couldn’t contain his excitement*

The artists taught me tips and tricks on how to get the precision right. Also, I was able to give my own take on street art. *yasss*

In terms of overall experience, I give the Label 5 pop-up event a thumbs up! *yay* The cocktails were mouthwatering, whilst graffiti workshop kept me entertained until the very last minute. Therefore, I’m so looking forward to seeing what these guys are going to do next!

Key moments…

July is one of the most significant months of my existence. From graduating high school, college and university to starting my life in Norfolk and London, July has always been that time of the year when life-changing moments unfold.

I find it hard to believe the fact that I’ve already spent a third of my life living in the United Kingdom. *yikes* It feels like it was yesterday when this pure innocent soul was packing his bags and taking his one-way flight to a better (more promising) future… AND guess what, I’m still here living the life I’ve always dreamed of. It all seems so surreal when I’m thinking about it now! *damn*

This month, I’m celebrating another key moment in my life. It was my first time being on a cruise and first time visiting 5 cities ( and3 countries) in 7 days. *globe trotter alert* Also, it was my first time visiting Italy. *I can’t believe it myself* Therefore, I’m dying to see more of the land of pizza. Who wants to join me?! *travel buddy application is now open*

Category is… Summer Daze!

Several weeks ago, I was so stoked to partner with Jacamo because they’re all about living in the moment, in all shapes and sizes. *hashtag live YOUR moment* So, if you haven’t popped onto their awesome website yet – you’re missing out big time. They’ve just added so many new pieces to their store, so you should definitely check these guys out!

Today, I’m wearing Dr Marten’s 8 Eye Lace Up Boots, paired with J By Jasper’s revere collar shirt and Jacamo’s own stone linen trousers. This overall look is serving you some chilled vibes, perfect for a Sunday stroll in town or catching up with friends for brunch. You’ll most definitely see me sporting these lace-up boots everywhere! *sorry not sorry*

Thanks to Jacamo for sponsoring this blog post. However, all views expressed here are my own and do not reflect those of the sponsor.

Field Day Festival With SuperDry

Field Day Festival 2018. SuperDry Sounds backstage featuring Hannah Jane Lewis and Au/Ra. Blog by Skirmantas Petraitis.

Military Maze at Brockwell Park.

Last month, I got the opportunity to join SuperDry and my blogging bae Victoria (@philorose) for a day out at Field Day Festival in London. We had an absolute blast dancing our feet off with the SuperDry team and hanging out with some of the hottest names in music. The best festival experience, indeed! *not mad, at all*

So, on this wonderful Saturday afternoon, SuperDry asked us to pick up some items and prance down the Brockwell Park. I mean, we couldn’t say no to that. I picked a camouflage jacket with a sports pouch, whilst Victoria chose a pink cap, glitter bum bag and denim jacket. *blogging power couple*

Pop singer Hannah Jane Lewis (@hjlofficial) joined us on this shoot because she can. *simples* Her song, Raincheck, is my biggest guilty pleasure from 2017. *cough cough, check Spice and Shuffle 08* Therefore, I was super stoked to share this experience with her! *new bestie alert*

SuperDry Sounds…

So, as you know, we spent most of our day backstage. We hang with our new bestie Hannah, whilst enjoying endless rum cocktails. *double vision, oops* The only artist I was looking forward to meeting that day was Au/Ra (@heyitsau_ra). Her latest single, Panic Room, is taking over the charts and she deserves it. *pssst, Panic Room is on Spice and Shuffle 10*

We got to chat a little bit backstage. All I can say is that she has a few surprises up her sleeve this year. Therefore, watch this space because I’ll be featuring more of her music in my upcoming editions of “Spice and Shuffle”.

This summer, SuperDry is heading out on a global tour with SuperDry Sounds. They bring new artists such as my current favourite Au/Ra to all the best festivals around the world. Both SuperDry and artist have an opportunity to bring awareness to their brands and really take it there, on a global scale. Therefore, it’s definitely worth checking their website for more information!

The Annual Last-Minute Father’s Day Gift Guide…

In a great tradition of “I’m always late for everything”, I’ve tried my best to avoid panic shopping but failed miserably! *yikes* There are so many cool brands out there that cater to men of all ages. Therefore, I’ve picked my current favourite gift sets for Father’s Day. *hint hint it’s this Sunday* So, without further distractions, here’s my Father’s Day grooming gift guide.

Vintage Rituals… For The Modern Man!

If you’ve been following my blog for quite some time, you probably heard of the fabulous British grooming brand Hawkins and Brimble. Their hair care products have natural ingredients, which leave me looking and feeling like a new man. *does a fresh-in-the-morning dance* So, this time, they have a 5-piece grooming gift set. It contains a Pre-Shave Scrub (125ml), a Shaving Cream (100ml), a Post-Shave Balm (125ml), a Beard Oil (50ml) and a soft Shaving Brush. All for a clean, smooth shaving experience!

Fewer Fine Lines.

My local favourite, Neal’s Yard Remedies, just launched a brand new Men’s Age-Defying Moisturiser! *hashtag no fine lines* This new moisturiser is rich in antioxidant cactus stem cells, which help to protect the skin against ageing and environmental stress. Also, the green tea caffeine helps to reduce the appearance of under eye bags. *yay* Therefore, this is a must-have grooming item for any self-conscious man.

Window to Your Soul.

Last week, I was at the London Fashion Week Men’s event and guys at Vogue Homme gave me a goody bag full of House 99 products. The line was created by David Beckham who’s been known to experiment with his look quite regularly. David’s been a true inspiration to millions of men worldwide. *including me, okurrr* So, I picked my favourite product from the lineup – the energising eye balm. Enriched with caffeine, this eye balm aims to reduce signs of fatigue, brightens and smooths the under-eye area. *no more dark circles* It’s a vital product of any skincare routine. *scrolls down to shop the essential set from House 99*

For and Unbeatable Beard.

Last but not least, we have a Beard Grooming Kit from Jack Black. This four-step beard care routine features everything needed to cleanse, condition, soften, and style. Therefore, every bearded gent would be delighted to receive this. Jack Black bear care products are also available at Mankind. Oh, and, you can find their travel kit at the bottom of this post as well. *yasss*
