I had the pleasure of being on the front cover of the Life & Style section of The Voice Newspaper. They spoke to me about my rise and how I’ve managed with my first season of Premier League football as a pundit.

The end of January means it’s the Mrs’ birthday and every birthday whether it’s hers or mine we make sure we go abroad and visit a new city. The destination of choice this time? Spain (Madrid to be precise). Why the capital? Because we found a sweet deal for 3 days at the ME hotel bang in the middle of the city. I know Spain well. I’ve been Ibiza, Barcelona and Madrid once before but for just a day with adidas. This time I wanted to do some more exploring.
The ME hotel is amazing. I’ve been to the one in London numerous times because they have loads of fashion events there so I knew the one in Madrid would be nice too and it didn’t disappoint. The food, architecture and shops in Madrid are top draw. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great which is normal for January in Spain but it was a real bomber because when I last visited 2 years ago it was 38 degrees (it was August to be fair).

Myself and the better half were recently invited to stay at the Melita Hotel in Victoria. The Melita is an intimate yet chic hotel in the heart of Victoria, London and is renowned for it’s hospitality with bloggers.
This place is the perfect stay for anyone wanting to grab great pictures, venture into central London or simply just get some work done. There are even some great coffee shops near by especially The Roasting which does amazing hot chocolates. In the pictures above I’m wearing a grey coat by COS, Zara destroyed denim jeans and Nike tech fleece Presto’s.
For those of you who don’t know, I am part of a online football show called #FilthyFellas. Over the last year we have built a strong niche following because of our urban influenced banter when talking about the beautiful game. I also present for JD Football so it made sense that the two come together for the launch of the Nike Magista X boot.
Myself, Poet and Vujanic were asked to do a live version of #FilthyFellas in the flagship JD store on Oxford Street for Nike Football X. Grime veteran Logan Sama not only hosted the event but also span some tunes for the crowd who attended.

Footlocker dropped their black and red collection this summer which featured some of the latest models and garments from some of the biggest sports brands including Nike, Adidas and Vans to name a few. These models came in a variety of all black and all red colour ways which represent the signature colours of the Footlocker brand.
I decided to get my hands on a pair of the all black adidas Tubular Runner S’ and demonstrate how you can wear these super stylish kicks to London Fashion Week. I chose a tan corduroy blazer, a black ribbed turtle neck courtesy of Topman with some COS tapered trousers and threw on the Tubular’s for a casual yet sophisticated look.

Dubai has so many amazing locations and every twist and turn is a photo opportunity so I decided to take some outfit snaps on the Jumeirah Beach Marina. I spent most of my holiday in swim shorts and vest tops because Dubai is boiling but you have to have smart outfits on hand too because it’s a luxurious location.
For this ‘fit, I wore a white short sleeved shirt from Topman’s current summer collection. I also wore some lobster print Ralph Lauren shorts with some slip on sneakers courtesy of COS x Mr Porter’s SS15 collaboration.Tweet
How’s it going guys? It’s been a while I know. I’ve been so busy rebuilding my brand and slightly changing the direction of my career as an entertainer that I have completely neglected my precious blog. Forgive me.
I’m back now and the first post starts with a bang! I recently went Dubai with the better half for pleasure not business, and I have to say, it was one of the best holidays I have ever been on. Dubai has so much to offer. From their shopping malls, to the water parks, even the hotels have tonnes of entertainment and things to do. I stayed at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel which is right opposite the Burj Al Arab and I have to say it’s a beautiful place. The food, rooms and staff are all great and it even has a Mahiki nightclub on the premises.

I have joined the channel to bring my passion for Spurs and help build this online Lilly-white community. I kicked things off by hosting a new show called #Spurverts which involves me talking about the things that have most excited me in the world of Spurs. I also did a match preview for the Spurs v Man City game this weekend.
