Shop Local This Festive Season
Stress less this festive season. If you're anything like us, you put your Christmas shopping off until the very last minute. Your stress levels hit an all time high and you feel like your hair is turning grey. 'Tis the season to be jolly they say? We say, 'tis the season to double up on those anxiety meds. Despite the fact that Christmas can be stressful AF, we do actually wave the festive flag. Once you get past the gift shopping part there's nothing but love to give, joy to feel and good food to eat. We've done the hoop jumping for you this year and came up with a rather cracking, Chrissy gift guide (because no one likes a Christmas Grinch)...
Tinsel is not a fashion accessory
Alas, the holiday is here and for some, in terms of fashion, by December we can be exhausted from pulling out all the stops for the recent Spring Racing Carnival, and with the silly season here it can start to warp ones judgement.

Here Is What Men Are Wearing in 2017 So Far
As the years go on, trends in men’s fashion get more and more daring.

But this year, what is a trend when it comes to fashion and style got even ballsier as men keep their bold style cravings satisfied.
We have gotten ahead of the curve so far and defined some of the hottest fashion statements that blow this year’s fashion game. From what we have witnessed on the runways, the streets, TV screens, and fashion stores, here are the styles and items of clothing that men are wearing in 2017 and will probably still make it next year.
