As you may have realised by now, I am quite fond of Eastpak. I'm not sure if it's because they take me back to memories of my childhood; because they are genuinely the most practical things for the city/commuter life; or due to the fact that I love their style. It's potentially a mix of the three. But anyway, when I was told that Eastpak are running a competition in collaboration with Size?  to win a trip for two to Berlin with £300 spending money, I was keen to jump on board and let you guys know all about it.

First, Eastpak and Size? have asked me to share my entry and show you my favourite place in my city. I live in Winchester, but I have only lived here for two months and due to that, I haven't really found my favourite place yet. What I have found is that I love all of it and the Cathedral is absolutely beautiful.

Contrary to that, I decided to make my main entry simply a photo of me on Winchester high street. No particular angle, filter or artsiness. I've not lived here long enough for the high street to bore me yet, I love it exactly as it is. Corny, but true.

All you have to do to enter is to take a picture of you wearing your Eastpak in your favourite place of your city. Upload it to Facebook, Instragram, or Twitter, along with #MADEFORYOURCITY, and a short caption stating why you love your city or a favourite memory of that place. Alternatively, you can enter straight through the www.madeforyourcity.com website.

Do this and you could win a trip for two to Berlin, with £300 spending money.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing your entries! (Feel free to tag me in them so I can take a look).

Cheers guys,


  1. What does on in Winchester, I know nothing about it? You should do a follow up when you've explored more.

    Buckets & Spades

    1. It's incredibly historic here. We have King Arthur's Round Table and the oldest pub in Britain (which was actually quite disappointing if I'm honest). I'll find the time to go around at some point and learn the history/take some photos.

    2. why was the pub disappointing?

    3. It's the oldest pub in Britain, but it's part of the Green King chain and the service was a bit off. To me that takes away some of the unique element it could've had, which I found to be a let-down.
