For a while now I have been working on my blog, photography and Instagram aesthetic, and I have finally found and settled with a vibe that I love & I hope you are loving too. At the end of last year, my site had a full re-vamp and I published ‘Created By Adam Kay’ – my space to share blog posts about travel and fashion but also to showcase my photography and all other creative projects. I am back into the full swing of it now and absolutely love it.

To celebrate I have created a short trailer with a mixture of clips that summarise the overall vibe of ‘Created By Adam Kay’ so… if you’re a new visitor or loyal returner you can see exactly what to expect!! Enjoy…

Adventures In Lanzarote

The Winter weather has well and truly hit the UK this week and I am definitely missing Summer! Since I wasn’t blogging most of this year, I didn’t get a chance to upload any content from my travels.
So, to keep the Summer spirits high I thought I’d share my video from my Adventures in Lanzarote this year.

Hopefully you’ll enjoy it and it’ll give you some good vibes and wanderlust ready for next year…

If you’re not already, be sure to Subscribe to my channel, I’m hoping to produce a lot more video content on createdbyadamkay.com in the future.

 

2015 Recap

Happy New Year!

This year has been absolutely amazing! I can safely say it has been one of the biggest and best years of my life, so far. I did so much. It was the year I took my GCSE’s, attended Prom, travelled to America for the first time, left school and moved to college, turned 16, had a summer holiday with my girlfriend, released a book I was part of, etc etc. Just so many amazing things, that I could never recap in words. So, here is my “2015 Recap” video…

Festival Style

This week a few friends, my girlfriend and I attended Fusion Festival, in Birmingham; an annual music festival held in Cofton Park. We had a great time and got to see some incredible acts including Dj Fresh and Ed Sheeran!

I wore some Super Skinny Jeans from River Island which are custom ripped on and above the knees. I paired this with a grey scoop neck t-shirt from All Saints. I liked the scoop neck because it has a ripped look to it which I thought went well with my jeans. As I’m in England the weather is completely unpredictable, even in summer, so I brought along an oversized red Timberland sweatshirt for during the day and evening if it were to get cold. I rolled up the end of the sleeves as it is oversized and I really like this look. Sticking with the Timberland theme I wore a pair of classic Timberland boots with my outfit because 1) they fit in with my style really well and 2) it wouldn’t matter if the park became very muddy, I would be prepared. Finally, I wore Ray-Ban’s Erika style sunglasses because as I mentioned earlier, English weather is very unpredictable!

I had a great time at Fusion Festival and was really pleased with my outfit as it remained comfortable, practical and stylish throughout the entire day.

Lanzarote – The Film

Just over 2 weeks ago, myself, my girlfriend and my family took a trip to Lanzarote for a couple of weeks of summer sun! I had the best time, it was so nice to be able to relax with nothing getting in the way. The following film is a collection of all my favourite moments from the trip and I am really pleased with how it turned out, I think it could be my best video yet!

I also owe a big thank you to Luckies of London, who provided Eleanor and I with the awesome Travelogues that you’ll see in the video, it was awesome to have a place to store memorabilia, Polaroid photos and all the important stuff whilst on our adventure, I wouldn’t hesitate to grab yourself one of these if you’re a keen traveller, or somebody who wants to get into travel.

I am definitely suffering from some post holiday blues, but this film takes me right back. I hope you love it as much as me…

Hats & Hawaiian Prints – Smart Summer Look 2

                       

River Island Hat / River Island Hawaiian Shirt / Topman Super Skinny Shorts / River Island Brogues / Storm Sunglasses

In my last post I shared a smart summer outfit, today’s post is a bit of a part 2. This look is a little more adventurous, due to the Hawaiian prints but if you’re willing to give it a go, I think it can definitely work. 

Once again, I went with simple, black super skinny shorts; they work well with everything and I really like the skinny fit. Also, I chose to wear my brown brogues, as I said in my last post they’re smart but still have a modern, clean look! 

I’ve often been scared to try more daring prints, which is why I went with this Hawaiian shirt. It incorporates the bold patterns, but uses more modest, neutral colours. 

The final thing I added to this outfit was my hat, I’ve seen a lot of people wearing hats at the  moment and really wanted to get one myself. After a while trying on different styles and colours I eventually settled for this brown coloured Fedora hat. I really like how it looks with this outfit; I think it is just a subtle but stylish add-on.
