Poodle Parlour.

Being a hairy man can sometimes have it’s draw backs, but is being hairy really that bad? Who should tell you how to have your body hair? How long your beard should be? No one can really tell you, you have to know what’s right for you. Your own grooming ritual must be personalised, from…

Black Dogs & Ravens.

There are some topics that are often harder to talk about because it becomes overly personal, and you show weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and you open the door to have your feelings hurt; but I’m a grown man, and I can take the flack I get. That being said, this is where I talk quite personally about…

Coping With Body Image.

One of my first posts was titled Pygmalion Complex, and I promised within the last few sentences to share my own tips of how I’ve battled with my own body image over the last few years when it’s actually been a big concern for me. In 2012, I had reached my peak of how heavy…

Simple Breakfasts.

Breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, and it’s true from a metabolic standpoint – it kicks start your metabolism for the day and thus turns whatever calories you take in afterwards into energy…unless you eat too many and then it’s straight back onto your hips. I am the type…

Spice Bomb!

I am a creature of habit, in the most part. I have my routines, and breaking from these can often send me off on so many tangents, that I can’t stop until I fall asleep and reset. And so, from the age of 16 to 25, I wore the same fragrance: Jean Paul Gautier Le…

Buy Me Flowers.

It is my personal belief, that being bought flowers is a rather big gesture, as long as they do not follow an argument. Flowers should be giving with purely good intentions that serves just one purpose: to make the recipient feel better. If you’re buying them so that you get less hassle, then put the…

Roast Veg CousCous

One of my old blog incarnations was a short lived “Ted’s Kitchen”, but it’s hard to constantly write about food and cooking when you have so much else going on in your life. But there is some simple pleasures to be had by getting into the kitchen and cooking fresh meals, whether you work full…

Cup O’ Coffee

I won’t ever claim to be a dermatological genius, and I think often, we rely on others to tell us stuff that suits themselves, and we assume that it’s good for us too. All I’m going to say is: if you want to try this product, then do it, but you don’t have to. Way…

Interior One: Bedroom

I have always had an interest in interior design, much to my mother’s dismay. Whilst I spent the majority of time at my father’s house, I only got to decorate my bedroom once every few years, but when I stayed at my mother’s I think I must have changed it at least twice a year….

Pygmalion Complex.

As the title of the post suggests, I could be talking about a phenomenon that actually occurs and has thus been named, but it’s not; and don’t mistake it for the Pygmalion Effect. No, this is all rooted in that Greek myth you may or may not know; but for those of you who don’t…
