Summer

My Current Favourites

I thought I’d start the blog back up by curating a few of my favourite things right now….

1. First up is Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque and their Men’s Lip Balm! The mask, I got a sample of at the start of the month when I was doing some shopping in Kiehl’s and I will 110% be purchasing the full-size tub. This is a moisturising masque that you apply after cleansing your skin and leave on overnight. It’s aim is to “replenish your skin’s water reserves”. I’ve always struggled with my skin and my T-Zone can often get very dry, but after using this product my skin genuinely felt so hydrated and refreshed it was great! I used it around 3 nights a week and the results were really visible and I honestly think it’s cleared up my skin, a lot. The lip balm is also super hydrating and stays matte, which is exactly what I need, especially in the cold weather right now.

2. Next, is this Louis Vuitton card holder, its made with their traditional leather and embossed with a Volez Voguez Voyagez design, which I love! It can fit about two cards in which is perfect for nights out when I don’t want too much bulk in my pockets! And, I got it as a freebie because my parcel was delayed which makes it even more amazing.

3. Crep Protect is my 3rd current favourite. I’m such a lover of trainers and shoes in general and this stuff keeps them protected so well! I managed to keep my new NMD’s really fresh, even in the rainy UK weather! I got a gift set with their cleaning solution and wipes and they’re also super helpful for if I do get my shoes dirty. Since having them I always have a couple wipes in my backpack for emergencies!

4. Finally, a bit of reading for you all… I loved “The subtle art of not giving a fuck” by Mark Manson. I read it whilst on holiday in Lanzarote in January and it was a really refreshing perspective to start the year! I’d 100% recommend it!

On the same refreshing wavelength, I’m super happy to be back to my blog and I’m keen to work hard and produce some really great fashion and travel content so stay tuned through 2018 and be sure to follow my social media channels (Links in sidebar).

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…
