Spice and Shuffle 12

New Bond Street. Blog by Skirmantas Petraitis.

Ending 2018 with a jam-packet playlist!

I find it hard to believe that today is the last day of 2018. *shook* It feels like it was yesterday when I was dancing at Field Day Festival and doing my dream collaboration with Timberland. Time really flies!

To be honest, 2018 has been a rollercoaster year. So many ups and downs, from joy to tears, 2018 has propelled me to a stronger 2019. There are so many big changes coming my way in the next few weeks. From moving houses to new opportunities, I cannot wait to see how things will turn out for me in 2019. *hashtag new year new me, literally*

The 12th edition of “Spice and Shuffle” Spotify playlist is filled with my favourite songs from the past 3 months. When I sit down and put together these playlists, I try to select songs that go well with one another. Therefore, you’ll find songs with similar beats closer to each other.

The cover star of this playlist is Robyn. Her latest album is sooo good that it would be a crime not to add her to my playlist – it’s song number 2!

So, without further ado, here’s “Spice and Shuffle 12“. Hope you like it!

Don’t forget to follow Mr. Salt and Pepper’s Spotify profile to stay up-to-date with the latest music. I’m always up for hearing new music. So, please feel free to email me your suggestions!

Love Cuffs

Let the festivities commence!

It’s Friday, also known as, the last day of work before all the festivities begin! *sets out-of-office until next year*.Whilst everyone is doing their last-minute panic shopping, I’m currently eating my body weight in potato dumplings and tree cakes back in Lithuania. *googles to find out what the hell is he on about*

I’ve moved to England almost a decade ago. So, going home for Christmas has always been that extra special to me. It’s that one time of the year where I promise my nana to visit her and tell her all the funny stories from my experiences in London (and beyond). She recently told me that she checks Mr. Salt and Pepper blog daily to see what I’ve been up to using her iPad Pro… Yes, she spent £1,000 on a tablet, so she could watch YouTube and play online bingo! *hashtag QUEEN* However, I felt so bad because I’ve not been as active on my blog as I used to. So, hearing that from her is a good enough excuse for me to work on my blog a little bit more in 2019.

Instagram has been my main source of income for most of the year but Mr. Salt and Pepper blog is MY BABY and I’m so happy to own it for over 2 years now!

What do you guys think? What sort of content are you most looking forward to from me in 2019? Let me know in the comments section below!

A personalised gift that speaks volumes!

This Christmas, my favourite jewellery brand Thomas Sabo has great offers on their legendary bracelets! From the beaded bracelets to charms and bangles – all engraving is complimentary and done in a variety of styles. Whether it’s initials, dates or quotes, there are over 13k engraving combinations to choose from. *wowsers*

As someone who absolutely loves gift giving, Thomas Sabo is my go-to destination for fine jewellery. *yasss* So, this time, I opt in for their best-selling “Love Cuff” bangle in silver and engraved “Be fearless” on it. *browses through images and zooms in* Be Fearless?! Well, that’s my motto for the new year: taking more risks and having no regrets! 🙂 What would you engrave on your bracelet?

HAPPY HOLIDAYS! x

Preparing for the festive season…

With Christmas coming in less than 4 weeks, I can’t help but overcome with pure joy and happiness. *yay* While I love receiving gifts (like any normal person would), I love gift giving much more! As a savvy holiday shopper, I love planning meaningful gifts for my close friends and family in advance. *gift giving expert over here* Whether it’s a quality skincare product or a nice knit, I love giving gifts that are useful to someone I care about. Like they say… it’s not just the thought that counts! *wink*

If you’re not as savvy gift-giver as I am… Fear not! I’ve got your back in this blog post. So, read on…

The best male grooming essentials – all in one place!

This festive season, Mankind has a wide selection of Christmas gifts available on their e-commerce site. From stocking fillers to gift sets, there’s plenty to choose from. *spends hours filling up his shopping bag*

The other day, I’ve received their ultimate Christmas Collection box, which features 12 full-sized products, from iconic brands such as Elemis, Hanz De Fuko, ARgENTUM and Omorovicza to name a few. The whole set is worth £475 but is sold together for £100, exlusively on Mankind. So, it’s a great opportunity for a beauty-conscious gent like me to try some of the best male grooming products out there. I, personally, been using Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and Men-Ü Facial Wash for quite some time. Therefore, they are, without a doubt, a part of my daily skincare regiment.

Due to its enormous demand, this Christmas Collection box is now completely sold out. *oh nooo* BUT I have some good news for you. Makind were so generous this season that they’ve given me 2 of these boxes to giveaway! *oh em geee* So, I’m gifting one of these boxes to readers of Mr. Salt and Pepper blog and another – to my Instagram followers.

A classic never goes out of style…

Sometimes, I wish I had a time machine. I wish I had the ability to revisit all of these beautiful memories that are stored in my head. A few days ago, my aunt was visiting me for the weekend. We spent those very few days indulging in some Belgian food, visiting several museums and watching fireworks at Battersea Park. *hashtag bonfire night* However, my mind this whole time was somewhere else. But that story is for another time… In the meantime, let’s talk about style.

One of my favourite things about this season is having an excuse to buy a new jacket and a few sweatshirts. *sorry credit card* Winter is coming. Therefore, it’s time to add some layers to your seasonal wardrobe. Who’s with me?

Back in September, I showed you my new varsity jacket which I got from Members Only e-commerce store. It’s such a classic piece that I’ve decided to snag another jacket from their latest collection. I picked their iconic racer jacket in white because it’s such a standout piece that goes well with pretty much everything. So, I paired it with a grey sweatshirt and white trainers because I’m a huge fan of neutral tones this season. *aka a huge sneakers fan over here haha* This overall look is perfect for a casual day out with friends and family! You can also wear it all black underneath or complimented with your favourite pair of jeans.

What do you think of this look? What jackets are you sporting this season? Let me know in the comments section below!

The Centre of European Culture!

Here are a few photos from my trip to Brussels this past weekend and what an incredible experience that was! As my first solo trip in a while, I had the opportunity to make new friends, see new places and have a crazy fun time. So, with that said… On Friday, I met my Airbnb host and his friends. We played music and talked until the early hours on Saturday. *oops*

The following day, I decided to explore some of the touristy sights of Brussels. From Grand Place to the Royal Palace, Brussels really boasts of culture and history. The city centre was super touristy, so it took me a while to find a place where I could just chill and have some local cuisine.

Later that day, I met my friend who I first met in Lisbon. *Eurovision bro alert* We indulged in some Belgian waffles (pictured below), traditional blond beer and even managed to have gin on tap at one of the PR events nearby. So much fun!

On this occasion, I paired a Double Dogtooth Check Coat with Mohair Plaid Crew Neck Jumper, both from the latest French Connection AW18. To complete this look, I added formal trousers and two-tone double monk strap shoes. This is a very day out in the city look. Therefore, it would really make any gent feel confident when prancing around this cultural and historical centre of Europe.

I think everyone should own a check coat this autumn because it’s a very versatile piece that would go with pretty much anything. I’d say, it’s a good investment! *yasss*
