Out With The New And In The With Newer (and more ferocious)

Out With The New And In The With Newer (and more ferocious)

I love cars. I know a little about them, but not a huge amount. The checklist I run through in my head when deciding if I want to drive something or not goes as follows: Does it look sexy? Does it sound…

Getting ‘smart casual’ right

Getting ‘smart casual’ right

Yesterday was a day of meeting important people: I didn’t want to look overdressed, but I also didn’t want to look lazy, which begs the question: what do you wear for an occasion like that? I have a rule. Deconstruct a suit…

Bargain hunting

Bargain hunting

I haven’t done any shopping for ages and I nearly missed the post-Christmas sales entirely. I did have a little browse the other day though, and discovered that there are actually still some really good bits still around at a…

Winterproof

Winterproof

I hate to break it to you but Winter has arrived. The clocks have gone backwards, it gets dark after lunch and it’s starting to get a lot colder. The good news is that it’s time to bring out the…

Warming Up

Warming Up

As they say on Game of Thrones (constantly), ‘Winter is Coming’ and, with this in mind I decided to invest in some new work out gear. I’m usually very reluctant to spend money on gym clothes because I tell myself…
