How to Choose a Suitable Kayak

How to choose the right Kayak

How to choose the right Kayak


When looking for a new kayak it is quite often a very difficult job to work out which route to go down. Looking at what you will be doing 90% of the time is the answer most of the time, and with a bit of advice from a friend or shop you should be able to pick out a few models which can then be whittled down by demoing them. If you are looking for a kayak that is at home on a variety of waters, and you fancy doing river trips as well as maybe throwing it on your local canal or lake but also dream of paddling on a calm sea in and out of coves there are a few choices out there for you.
The kayaks themselves are capable on flat and moving water and I’m not talking major rapids, but if you are pottering along a scenic bit of river and come up to a rapid… Naturally you want to get down it, preferably upright. Models to name drop that you would thoroughly enjoy on these types of water are; Wilderness Aspire, Robson Waikiki, Dagger Blackwater, Venture Flex, Necky Manitou Sport but I am writing this article to share my views on the hottest kayak of the moment for recreational touring or calm/moving water paddling and that is the Dagger Axis Elite 10.5.

A short Internet search will show you that there are a few different models and sizes of Axis, this is good to know however being British the Elite 10.5 will most likely be the best choice for you. It has a large cockpit but is slightly smaller than its American predecessors that just didn’t offer most reasonably size European paddlers the contact and comfort they needed to get the most out of the kayak.

With a bit of R & D the Axis Elite 10.5 was born and has been proven on a lot of our lovely British waterways; lochs in Scotland, Rivers in the valleys, Canals throughout the country and of course the shores of our great isles. The finish on this boat is superb; a smooth appearance with carefully styled logo placements and great bits of trim. Internally the seat is spot on offering leg lift for those who want the best contact with the very comfortable thigh grips and an adjustable supportive backrest. It is a kayak designed to be sat in and enjoyed, whether paddling overnight trips (with all your kit in the rear hatch) or just sitting watching wildlife.

Performance wise I mentioned that it can paddle a variety of waters, this is due to the stable nature of the kayak, whilst also offering slight edges to keep it nimble. Experience wise the kayak neither requires you to be advanced or brand new to the sport, its stability and easy paddling (combined with the drop down skeg) will keep newcomers comfortable and confident out there on the water whilst the experienced paddler will also appreciate the ease of paddling and versatility it offers.

To sum up – for a kayak with confidence inspiring stability but nimble performance that will happily paddle Calm rivers, Lakes, Canals, lochs, estuaries and calm coastal waters look no further than my favourite kayak the Dagger axis Elite 10.5
As for getting to sit in and try one of these amazing kayaks you can either hit the forums and see if it is possible to find anyone willing to come out with you for the day to let you try. Or I happen to know that Hereford and Borders Canoes and Kayaks near the River Wye have stock boats as well as a Demo which you could take for a spin on their on site lake.

Jump Onto The Jumper Trend!!

You know when Autumn/Winter is approaching http://sildenafilcitrateotc.com when all the shops in the high-street start filling their shelves and racks with jumpers, cardis and coats. The jumpers get us here at LG especially excited with

all the different styles and colours. There are so many ways to wear them, here are a few of LG’s faves and some tips on how you could wear them.

Mango-striped-sweater1-214x300We absolutely adore this Mango stripped sweater, the black and grey stripes work really well as do the long sleeves. This should be worn casual smart, with a pair of black skinny jeans and flats, if you’re going out a sharp fitted black blazer will fit perfectly. if black on black isn’t really your thing why not pair with a nice indigo or deep blue pair of jeans, then tone back done with some black kitten heels. This jumper could be dressed up for the evening with a pair of black wet look leggings, this will really accentuate the jumper, a big pair of statement gold earrings like a pair of chunky hoops with your hair scraped back will complete the look. Accessorize with some gold bangles or gold ring.

River-Island-Dress-300x300

Wow this River Island Aztec jumper dress is definitely a statement piece, if you’re wanting to make a point then this dress does that. The bold black and white prints are loud and eye-catching drawing attention straight away. This should be worn with opaque tights and a pair of flats, either black for a more subtle look and white to make the ensemble even louder than it already is. If you’d prefer leggings then a nice black pair would go well, avoid patterned leggings though as the top is bold enough and you don’t want to make it too matchy.

 

oasis-short-sleve-jumperThis is a beautiful piece by Oasis, very versatile and can very much be worn in several different ways. Because it is quite a light jumper, it can be worn as part of a skirt or trouser suit, the material is thick so you would still get the warmth that you require. Very few jumpers can be worn with a skirt but this would look gorgeous with a maxi skirt accessorised with a belt and because white goes with any colour you can pretty much wear whatever colour skirt you’d like. For a relaxed casual day wear with your fave pair of jeans.

New-look-belted-pocket-knit-dress

Here are LG we love pieces that can be worn during the day, and then transformed at night to look like a completely different outfit like this New Look jumper, it definitely has that quality, it can be worn very casual but because it’s quite long it can be worn in the evening as a jumper dress, perhaps to a bar, to the colour is gorgeous and should be accessorised with a belt like in the picture, a thin belt over a blazer for a smart look to cinche your waist in, or a nice chunky belt to make a bold statement.

What To Know About Boots!!

So winter is finally upon us and it is that time when we swap our sandals and open toe heels for the comfort and beauty of boots. They keep our tootsies warm and snug and make us look fab, what’s not to love about the humble boot. There are so many different types of boots; here is a little break down of what you should consider when shopping for your next pair:

Flats: Flat boots that have basically no heel are mainly built for comfort, they don’t strain your feet, they are extremely warm on the inside and they usually come in tan, brown and black. Wear your flat boots on a casual day when you are just shopping, popping out for a coffee or perhaps taking your children out, because they are so comfortable you will have no problem walking around in them all day.

Wear with: Skinny jeans or leggings and always tucked in.

Ankle boots: These are more suited for the office; they come in various different heel heights from flat, to kitten heel right through to your 5 incher. If you’d prefer to wear a heel for work then make sure you ankle boot has a solid chunky heel, you do want a thin heel, it won’t support you as well and teetering around on your toes will crush them and strain the soles of your feet. Ankle heels are best suited to bootleg cut trousers; the trousers should definitely cover the top of the boot. Ankle boots can be worn casually, but are especially great for work.

Wear with: Bootleg trousers, knee length office skirt with tights.

Mid-length/knee high boots: These gorgeous style boots come in array of different styles, buckles, belts and buttons turn it from a simple boot to a show stopper. They come in different textures, suede another office fave, leather won’t let in an ounce of cold iand patent if you are in that extra fabulous mood. You can pretty much wear these tall boots with anything tuck your fave jeans or patterned leggings with a plain tee for a casual look. An office dress with coloured tights and your smart knee high boots definitely spells office chic.

Wear with: Dress and tights for a smarter look, jeans tucked in for tht casual feel.

One of the best things about boots, is that if well looked after they actually last a long time, invest in a quality pair of boots and there is no reason why you should be wearing the same next winter.

From Office Geek To Office Chic – What To Wear To An Interview

officegeekofficchick-300x189

So you’e got an interiew coming up, first of all well done that is an achievement in itself, but now you are probably nervous and excited all at the same time and maybe panicking about what to wear because you want to make sure that apart from saying the right things and coming across in the right wayou look presentable and professional.

It is definitely possible to look fashionable and still professional and it has everything to do with colour, stay away from the traditional black and white that seems to be the staple uniform, and inject some colour into that interview room.

You can base what you wear around three main pieces of clothing:

Skirt.

Skirt, make this the centre piece to base your outfit around, you could choose a straight fitted A-line skirt but instead of going for the predictable black colour, choose a burgundy red, or a royal blue, this will immediately make your whole outfit pop. Top with a crisp white short-sleeve shirt and a fitted short sleeve white blazer, keep your blazer buttons done up. Complete the look with black shoes and black handbag. If you choose to wear jewellery a plain gold necklace and gold studs will look good, plain statement pieces rather than over the top dangly flashy jewellery.

Trousers.

If you would feel more comfortable wearing a pair of trousers, then it would be advisable to stick to the traditional black, anything else will look too much, but you can still inject colour into the outfit with the blouse or the blazer. For example a black pair of trousers with a deep blue blouse or a pastel green shirt livens the ensemble up, complete with a black long sleeve blazer and your interview ready.

Dress.

A smart dress suit is feminine, fashionable and still professional, there are many designs and cuts to flatter and fit all body shapes and sizes, you can still rock an office dress even in the winter. Wear coloured tights to liven up a black, office suit, were not talking neon colours, a deep teal or burgundy will take your dress from office geek to office chic. If your dress is coloured then stay away from the coloured tights and tone it down with a simple opaque or translucent black. It is not necessary to over accessorise, a thin belt tied around the middle of the dress will clinch in your waist line revealing that hour glass figure.

Confidence is key when being interviewed, and if you look great, you’ll feel great.
