Last weekend I stayed at the ME hotel in Milan. The hotel was amazing and the service was impeccable, exactly what you would expect from a 5 star hotel. The hotel is situated by Piazza della Repubblica metro station and a 5 minute taxi from Milano Central train station.
Upon arrival we were offered a drink whilst we waited for our room to be prepared. We went for the prosecco and sat in the lobby bar until our room was ready.
The hotel had decorated the room for me as it was my birthday. They had put a bottle of prosecco on ice, a happy birthday dessert and balloons all over the room with a message on the bathroom mirror.
The rooms were incredible with a very sleek and minimalist design. We were staying in the MODE room which was their deluxe room. It was very spacious and well equipped with a beautiful free standing bath, walk in shower, 47 inch smart TV and a great sound system.
There was great attention to detail in the room from the adjustable mood lighting to the pillow menu.
I would definitely recommend getting the breakfast included with your stay as this was incredible! There was so much to chose from and you could order anything extra that they didn’t have with the buffet. The breakfast was served in the RADIO Rooftop Bar which is located on the 10th floor and has really nice views over the city.
I already can’t wait for another stay at the ME hotel, London is next on my list!

A lot of people usually see me in a more casual or street style look but I do actually really like dressing smart for certain occasions. This look is more of a office/ business look. The suit is from NEXT and this blog post is on my Aspinal Of London bag.
If you work in an office or travel a lot with business this Aspinal bag is ideal. The Small Mount Street Tech Bag is the ultimate business accessory. It has extra internal pockets (with cable paths) to carry your phone & tablet devices. The bag itself costs £650 but will last you a life time & you pay for quality.
The bag itself is handmade from the finest smooth redwood Italian calf leather with smooth navy handles. It has a single large main compartment and a full length padded section for your laptop or tablet (capacity to fit up to a 15″ laptop).

A UK online based clothing brand. Like most I found these guys through Instagram. I have the white & sand large logo T. These T shirts go really well with bombers. I think the name of the brand is cool and the fit is really good. They are tightly fitted but not to much like muscle fit. I ordered size medium on each and I am 6ft 3. They retail for £24.99 but they always do offers so check them out if you like the look of these T shirts. They also do bomber jackets, hoodies and womenswear.

Kronaby Sweden Connected watches
So I recently got a Kronaby smart watch which I posted on my Instagram @finnerz.uk. I was really intrigued by these watches as they do not look like smart watches but they have the features of one. I went for the the SEKEL with the dark grey dial and black leather strap. For me black watches go with everything. The packaging was really nice, the box is all white and I personally love to keep all my watches in the cases when I am not wearing them to keep them in mint condition.
When you get one of these watches you will have to set it up, just simply download the Kronaby app on your smart phone. It is really easy and simple to use, just turn your bluetooth on and connect the watch. You can then set the time, it does this automatically so you should see the dials move into place. It also has some other cool features using the pushers. You can take photos on your phone, play music, find iPhone and more all using the watch.
You would never know this is a smart watch and that’s what I love about it. You can wear it for smart occasions or more casual everyday use. It kind of reminds me of a James Bond watch and all my friends so far have said how cool it is.
This particular watch retails at £435 and comes with a 2 year battery life. Check it out using the link below.
43 mm, Stainless steel 316L
Double domed sapphire crystal with AR coating
Sunray brushed gun metal plated with applied indexes, Super-LumiNova® markers
All about the checkered!
I have always loved the checkered shirts and this look has had a lot of good feedback. The red washed check shirt from New Look is only £19.99 I matched this up with black skinny jeans again from New Look for £19.99 and Vans. You could easily wear this on a night out and replace the vans with shoes.
