    Xmas 2019: Gifts For Kids

    [AD – Gifted] This post contains gifted item(s). Since becoming an uncle to my niece last year, I’ve had the perfect excuse to take a walk down the toy aisles in supermarkets during my weekly shopping trip. I’ve also been able to take a wonder around the likes of Smyths Toys and The Entertainer (yeah, I definitely felt like a giddy kid all over again!) It almost feels like being transported to a whole other universe, right? One thing that did crop up in my mind over and over again was the vast choice of toys available to children nowadays – I mean how are we adults supposed to know…

    Xmas 2019: Gifts For Her

    [AD – Gifted] This post contains gifted item(s). When it comes to shopping for women, I’m pretty much clueless; it’s just so difficult finding the perfect gifts (am I right, guys?) Well, the good news is, since becoming a married man, I’ve become a little wiser and started to pay a lot more attention to certain cues from the women in my life! Now, let me tell you, don’t ever ask them what they want as gifts. It’ll either be answered with an eye roll and a shy smile or will escalate into a war of words – definitely not something you want to deal with! Instead, pick up a…

    Xmas 2019: Gifts For Him

    [AD – Gifted] This post contains gifted item(s). Since getting married and settling down (yes, it finally happened!) I’ve started to take a little more interest in special occasions where the family comes together and enjoys each other’s company. Whether it be birthdays, seasonal events or the countdown to the annual festivities, I’ve become more involved in the planning process and, dare I say, actually started to love being able to choose gifts for my loved ones! This Christmas will be my first as a married man (yeah, I still can’t believe it and the sound of that is comical to me too…) so obviously I feel the need to…

    Halloween Horror At Home

    [AD – Gifted] This post contains gifted item(s). I love that it’s finally Autumn – a season I’ve been longing for since the lengthy, humid Summer days. Although, I feel like it’s quickly accelerating into Winter! However, before all that comes the 31st of October (no, I’m not talking about Brexit…) HALLOWEEN! It’s become so much more Americanised in the UK and giant retailers are cashing in with all of the increasing commercialisation. As a kid, I much preferred to cosy up inside with plenty of snacks and my trusty old game console, enjoying hours of fun, and then retiring to a horror movie later on in the evening with…

    A Man’s Guide To Father’s Day Gifts

    [AD – Gifted] This post contains gifted item(s). Father’s Day is almost upon us and whilst my Dad is the most laid back guy in the world (like most Dads, am I right?) I still feel like I should make Father’s Day a little more special and have some bonding time with him! Since my Dad prefers to have some good ol’ banter and isn’t too fussed about gifts, I am pretty chilled out with what I get him. However, I do know a few friends who have Dads that are crazy about particular things, such as skincare or DIY. So, I decided to put a little gift guide together…

    The Art Of Slowing Down

    It’s been a while since I last wrote a post on general life and where I’m at these days. It’s been pretty hectic for sure. I feel like days are passing by in a blur and I’m not able to appreciate the present or savour the small precious moments. It feels like there’s too much to do and 24 hours in a day is just not enough – anyone else feel me? So, I’ve decided to make a few changes, so that I don’t get stuck in an endless vortex of work and no play. Do less – I feel like the first step to slowing down is by decreasing…
