October Favourites | Editors Pick

As October has come to an end – and yes, we know, it’s flown by – we’re here with our must-haves of October. This month is a fashion edit and so we’re bringing you all our favourite items of October – the things we loved best and couldn’t live without through the month of October.

We obsessed (and still are obsessing) over this Teddy Bear Coat from Yumi. With Teddy Coats popping up all over the place right now, it’s super hard to find a one that will last through the Winter without falling apart or going bobbly. A lot of the ones we’ve tried out are also super scratchy and not quite as soft as they look. Either that or they’re priced way out of our comfort zones. This coat from Yumi is unreal. Head on over to Yumi for a sneak peek, we won’t tell anyone.

Winter Work Wear Essentials

The weather has spoken and as Jon Snow would say, winter is coming (it’s basically here, we know). At this time of year, we know how important it is to feel cosy – even when you’re at work! We’re here to lend a helping hand and help you look great but feel cosy during these Winter months.

Turtlenecks & Roll-Necks

Roll or Turtle neck jumper under a suit / tweed jacket

Let’s be honest, wearing a turtleneck is like receiving a big hug every second of the day. They’re not only cosy, but they look good. Pair a long-sleeved roll neck thin knit with a pair of paper bag trousers if you’re woman or some slim-fit suit trousers if you’re a man, slide on some black boots and throw on some cute gold accessories or a statement watch and you’re in for one cosy (but stylish) day in the office.

Take a look at Moss Bros Wine Merino Wool Roll-Neck Jumper for men here and sign up for their newsletter for even more stylish Winter pick, right here.

Dress up this Cotton Stripe Roll Neck from Lands’ End with a cute wool blazer and keep yourself warm and looking good through this season. If you love their stuff, order their catalogue here for deals and updates on their clothing.

Winter boots

We love UGGs as much as the next person, but, for some reason, they aren’t work-attire – I know, crazy! So, we’re talking about investing in a good quality pair of cosy smart boots – perfect for office wear, meetings and a nice dinner with the partner.

Walktall has men with big feet sorted and we’re in love with these Chatham Aplin Boots – don’t they just look cosy as heck?! Sign up to their newsletter for incredibly BIG deals on their selection of large shoes.

These Ring Pull Cleated Ankle Boots from Select Fashion are to die for. We’re seriously loving these and know they’ll keep your feet super warm – looks like there is definitely room for a fluffy sock. They have great savings in their newsletter if you’re looking for a bargain!

Cable Knits

Burberry London Cable Knit Sweater

You’re probably wondering how a cable knit can possibly pass as work wear right? We’re here to tell you that it’s possible and it’s actually quite easy. Pair a beautifully chunky pink cable knit (we like this one from Yumi) with a pleather black skirt, some wool tights and your new boots and you’ve got a cosy, but sophisticated work look. Their newsletter is filled with great winter fashion inspo!

If you’re a guy who isn’t quite feeling the pleather skirt, we have you covered too. Choose a light-coloured chunky knit, like this one from Culture Vulture and pair it with a slim-fit shirt (collar out), some tailored chinos and some brogues and you’ve got yourself a smart but warm work look. If you like Culture Vulture as much as we do, order their catalogue – they have loads more great winter fashion picks just waiting for you.

Hopefully, these ideas have given you enough inspiration to create the most stylish but, most importantly, cosy outfits for work this Winter. Be sure to send us pictures of your outfits – we’d love to see them.

5 Autumn Essentials

It has arrived. The leaves are turning yellow and drifting to the floor, the evenings are drawing in, the mornings are cooler, and the coats are being dusted off. Yep, that’s right, Autumn is here. Here at Catalink, we’ve got the jumpers at the ready, blown the dust off our favourite pumpkin candles and pulled the tights out from the bottom drawer. We’re ready. That’s why we thought we’d help those of you that aren’t so ready, get ready.

Here are our 5 must have Autumn essentials:

CANDLES

We’re talking pumpkin spice, crushed leaves, woodland and fresh breeze type candles. No Autumn is complete without a new, delicious smelling candle – preferably in a beautiful jar, with those burnt woodland colours laced throughout. If you’re not a candle person, well, what is wrong with you. How can you not be a candle person?! Check out Garden Trading’s Orange & Cinnamon Candle for a little bit of something delicious.

SCARVES

Shall we call them scarves or little miniature blankets that wrap you in a feeling of warmth, comfort and happiness. You may think we’re being overdramatic, but we’re not. Come on in and join the world of pure happiness when you envelope yourself in an incredible scarf from Johnstons of Elgin. Their cashmere scarves are not only cosy and super soft, but they’re also elegant and incredibly beautiful – they are the perfect addition to a cosy Autumn outfit.

COSY THROWS

Picture this: you’ve arrived home from work, you’re tired and looking forward to a wind-down evening in front of the TV. You eat a deliciously warming bowl of chilli, get into your comfies and take off your makeup. You’ve already selected the viewing material for the night and the kettle has just been whacked on – the choccy digestives are at the ready. Everything is perfect, but you feel a slight chill! You’re not cold enough to grab the duvet from upstairs but you’re cold enough to need a little something over those legs. Yep! You guessed it; it’s throw time. Imagine a cosy, autumnal throw placed oh so beautifully over your lap whilst you sit and enjoy your relaxing, evening in front of the TV.

Have we sold it to you yet? If so, check out the beautiful range of throws AHF Furniture has to offer!

WARM DRINKS

If you’re a real Brit, we’re talking about a perfectly brewed cup of tea! If your perfect Autumnal evening in doesn’t include a cup of tea, coffee or a hot chocolate (what a naughty little treat) then are you even having a cosy night in? Whether you’re at work, back home for the evening or have just woken up with a sleepy head; Autumn is the perfect time to re-introduce your favourite winter drinks into your diet. Head over to Nothing But Tea to have a browse of a huge range of delicious teas!

THE COAT

Well, well, well, it’s that time of the year again. If you’re like us, we like to invest in a new coat every single year. We’re not saying it’s a necessity… oh okay, we are. It’s a necessity. There is nothing that can transition you more perfectly into Autumn than a shopping session for a new coat. Select Fashion have an incredible – and we mean it when we say incredible – range of coats for the AW18 season. Not only that, but their prices are super affordable!

So, there you have it – are you more excited for those leaves to fall than you were before you began reading this? If so, our job here is done. If not, well, we’re not sure anyone can help you, but the rest of our website may. Head over to Catalink.com to explore a whole bunch of free catalogues, brochure and newsletters – we’re sure you’ll find something to make you happy!

 

How to Give Your Man a Makeover

Do you often look at your man and think that a makeover would be revolutionary? It’s not that you think they’re unattractive – duh! It’s simply the thought that a few simple nips and tucks would really transform him.

If you ever find yourself thinking this, but just don’t know where to start, we’re here to give you a little helping hand. These top tips are the best way to get that makeover ball rolling.

The face

Whether your man sports a thick and straggly beard, a little dash of stubble or thinks he is clean shaved, he probably can improve what he thinks is already pretty good. You know that saying: you don’t want it until you’ve had, well this is exactly that.

Take him to the barbers – choose one that is actually decent and has friendly, helpful staff. Get him in for a beard trim (we’ll talk hair later) and let the barber work his magic. With the help of some trained professionals, his beard will transform into a neat, sexy and tidy masterpiece.

If he’s ‘clean shaven’, get the barber to really clean shave him – they’ll be a difference.

It’s all about creating a canvas so that he can follow on and continue to make masterpieces. Once you’ve made that canvas, it’s time to get him the tools to turn it into a masterpiece everyday.

The Executive Shaving Company offers a range of high-quality male grooming products that will be truly revolutionary for your man. Once he has the tools, they’ll be no stopping him!

The hair

Hair products are not just for women. It’s important that every guy has their own, personal hair products that they can use every day – designed for their hair type and their needs. This is a must for any man’s bathroom essentials.

Get your man the products that he needs to tame his mane! Head over to The Beauty Store and order those important products today. If he has dry hair – find something made for that, if he has dandruff – find him something that will solve this.

All you have to do is give him the tools to work his mane and get it in shape.

The clothes

Oh, the clothes. If you love shopping (for yourself), you’ll probably love shopping for your guy just as much – okay, probably not as much, but you’ll still enjoy it.

Start simple – choose plain T’s, paired with rolled up shorts, slim fitted jeans and a classic pair of everyday shoes. Vans are a safe option – they’ll look good with everything and are super comfy and stylish. Walktall have a range of Vans, Nikes, Adidas and Converse shoes. Head on over to explore their range that will for sure fit your man’s large feet.

A refresh of their wardrobe can be simple, super easy and doable – if he’s resistant to change, starting with simple changes is perfect. However, if you’re all about going in all or nothing, head over to Moss Bros for an affordable range of shirts, suits and occasion wear – they do have casual wear, but we’ll keep quiet about that.

Now you have the tools, there’s nothing to stop you – enjoy every minute of it and share your transformations with us on our socials. Use the hashtag #catalinkstyle so we can find your images!

 

Top 3 Summer essentials

Hello Summer! Over here in the UK, we’re currently experiencing the mother of all heatwaves. If you’re from the UK, then you will know how exciting and unexpected this is for us. Here at Catalink, whilst we blast ourselves with fans, open all the doors and guzzle endless water, we thought it would be a great time for this blog post.

Whether you’re in the UK, enjoying this beautiful weather, going on holiday or just lucky enough to live in the tropics, here are three Summer essentials according to Catalink!

Sun Care

Now, this is obviously an essential and over here at Catalink, we’ve been sun creaming up in our lunch breaks so that we can lay lazily outside and enjoy every morsel of the sunshine – because let’s be honest; it will leave us.

Sun cream can be such a chore – so much so, that many people just leave it behind and risk damaging their skin. That’s a no no from us! We know that if you choose the right product, sun cream will become a part of your daily routine.

Head over to The Beauty Store to explore their incredible sun care range – and yes, they all smell delicious.

Flip flops

Keep your feet feeling and looking cool because, honestly, no one wants sweaty feet. We say; avoid the sweats and just throw on some cute sandals! If you work in a smart office and can’t get away with flip-flops, sandals are the perfect alternative.

For the guys that fancy a refresh, Walktall has a massive selection of sandals, slides and flip-flops and, they cater for those that have larger feet. Don’t worry if your feet aren’t bigger than average, Lands’ End have the best summer shoes around – plus they’re super comfy and stylish.

Sunglasses

Avoid those frown lines and grab your favourite pair of sunnies. There isn’t ample time in the UK to throw on some sunglasses, so we think you should make the most of the sunshine and treat yourself. Although designer shades are a good choice, they can be quite pricey and if you’re wanting a selection of sunglasses, not the best way to go. Our advice is to shop around in the high street shops and you’ll bag yourself a bargain pair of sunglasses that look just like the designer pair!

Here at Catalink, we like to think we have everything you could possibly need so of course we’re going to give you a great place to pick up your next fave pair – Glasses2you have a huge selection of sunglasses (prescription and non-prescription) at super low prices. You can get your favourite designer pair at half the price!

We’re so excited about our mini summer here in the UK and hope this blog lends you some great advice so you can be prepared and enjoy every single minute of the beautiful sunshine – we know we will.

Let us know your Summer essentials – we’d love to hear what you couldn’t live without this Summer.
