Online to offline friendships

Community is something I've spoken about before, but I feel it's so important to recognise online friendships and make the most out of them. So, along with Mat who you all know by now, I went to visit Magnus and India of Haarkon in Sheffield.

Self-restraint

My blog is a place of sharing, but sometimes this has been put on hold one too many times because everything wasn't quite perfect. I find blogging is a fine balance of planning and spontaneity, but recently I've just put the stoppers on creativity.

Grooming for guys

There's very few guys that can talk about grooming with confidence (spoiler: I'm not one of them). I'm wanting to learn more about what we can use for our hair and skin and that starts now.

Coffee table reads

First off, here’s a little bit of disclosure… I don’t even own a coffee table. But I feel ‘coffee table books’ sums up what type of book it is. Still with me? You know, the ones that look great in your room, undeniably pretentious and remain reserved for days where you have that spare hour away from your phone.

My Stuff #6

Days at home don’t have to be mundane. There are a number of little things we can enjoy from the comfort of our own space. As a work from home guy I’m inside an awful lot, so I’ve got a few things to help me tick over while I’m working or when having some down time in the evenings.

What success means to me

Is it possible that perhaps as a community we've lost our way a little? Algorithm tips, reminding people to turn on post notifications and guides to getting a bigger following all sounds like a rat race to me. It's time for a different perspective.

Dear Jordan

I’m writing this in between the Christmas and New Year lull. Nobody seems to know what to do other than eat, drink and sleep. I found it fitting to have a couple loungewear hours with a tea nearby to reflect on what a great year it’s been.

My Stuff #5

I’ve been on the road a lot recently and so I’ve become more familiar with the contents I zip up for my travels. I want to give you a rundown of what goes in my wash bag and travel case.

Making time

Sometimes it's important to make time to take a step away from the fast lane of blogging. Well, on this day, I did exactly that. No motive, no places to be, just a day out with friends and away from work deadlines.

Welcome.

This post has been a long time coming! As you can see, things look very different around here! It’s been three years since I started the blog and now I feel it’s the right time for an update.

Change

The feeling of being comfortable and content is something that worries me. Staying still for too long in anything I do plays on my mind. It's time for a change.
