Inside Canali’s SS19 Collection

This blog post was sponsored by Canali. All views expressed here are my own.

London Fashion Week is just around the corner and I can’t help it but get myself in the full swing of all the latest SS19 collections. Recently, I’ve been glueing my eyes on Canali and their upcoming SS19 collection, called LUI (HE).

Pastel colours, earthy tones and contrasting patterns are leading their way throughout this entire collection… I mean, could this get any better?! *plans to spend every penny on his summer wardrobe* I’ve been a huge fan of Italian fashions since the dawn of time. Therefore, Canali has always been under my radar when it comes to sophisticated, good quality clothing.

Sartorial tradition used as an instrument to translate contemporary trends into garments and accessories that enclose the life of LUI, the modern Canali man. LUI (HE) is an eclectic- Intense and authentic with an open mind for trends, inspiration, and experimentation. Added to a great admiration for well-made curated pieces that are full of heritage.

– Canali, 2019


Mr. Salt and Pepper picks!

So, without further ado, here are my top pics from LUI (HE) collection. I’m not going to lie, it was quite a challenge narrowing it down to just a few looks. *scrolls down to feast his eyes on some looks*

This wool-silk-linen bomber really stands out in this collection because of its denim-like effect and solid shirt collar. Looks really nice when complimented with a cotton shirt, flat-front trousers and derby shoes.
I’ve been a fan of technical fabric raincoat for quite some time. This one looks really good layered up with an earthy-toned blazer and a white t-shirt or a jumper. Formal trousers and sneakers are a plus!
Pastel cotton crewneck sweater, wool flat-front formal trousers and cotton-linen-wool slip-on shoes – perfect for a day out in the summer! *yaaas*
This single-breasted unlined blazer is one of my favourites this season because it can work really well on many occasions. Whether it’s paired with denim jeans or formal trousers, it would elevate the whole look regardless. So, great investment for seasons to come!
Last but not least, a good quality wool-silk-linen suit with a hint of casual will go a long way. As someone who dresses for the weekend every day, wearing an earthy-toned suit with casual pieces like a white t-shirt and trainers, will make you feel trendy yet smart.

Out with the old, in with the new.

Oh, you guys, can I just say… Thank the lord January is finally over! *bye bye January blues* I spent these past 4 weeks house hunting all over London and it has never been so stressful!

Most places I was viewing were not great. From tiny rooms, rough neighbourhoods to strange landlords and their out-of-this-world house rules. At one point, I thought I’d pack my suitcase and fly across the world for a few months because I was not having it. However, in the end, I found a nice double room in Marylebone with lovely new housemates. BUT most importantly, I’m still a Zone 1 queen! *proudly retains his Central London status*

Now that this is out of the way, I can finally focus on my blog and all those exciting projects coming in 2019. Are you ready?

When moving to a new flat, I’ve found a new lease of life in my wardrobe. I have discovered old favourites that are ready to be paired with some new gems. So, I picked up a few items from Zalando e-commerce site. It’s my new favourite shopping destination because it sells great quality clothes at very affordable prices. It’s like a glass of fashion-Berocca, ready to upgrade your wardrobe.

From this post, you can tell that I’m all about earthy tones this season. Heritage barn jacket complemented with a colour block jumper, formal navy trousers and white high top trainers. I personally love my new white trainers from Calvin Klein Jeans. They’re so going to be featured in most of my SS19 looks! What do you think?

Playlists

Spice and Shuffle 12

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.
