Medieval Hoodie

Wearing armour in winter is pretty important. Why not flash back to the medieval period with a fashionable hoodie?

The Purr of the Singapore F1

I've relocated to Singapore. The weather is wicked and I arrived just in time for the F1. Everyone talks about the noise, it is pretty special the first time you hear about.

Slamming Beaches

Back when the days were long and the nights short I introduced the crew to beach volleyball at the Manly SLAM Beach Volleyball Festival. Being a seasoned amateur I introduced the young fledglings into the art of fancy dress volleyball.

Get Younger

In April I was apart of a team who developed and deployed Younger You (YY). YY is a corner of the Internet for sourcing a variety of anti-aging advice. Luckily not everything needs a scalpel, butter knives can get you a few quick wins.

Bloke Toughness Test

A way to test one's toughness has been devised. The Tough Bloke Challenge is a 6km obstacle course. Blokes (and blokettes) are tasked to run, trudge through mud and climb adult play equipment on a Saturday morning. Individual categories break up the field into age groups and a super human elite category.

Tailored Armor

It can be such a dilemma deciding to walk out in public either feeling safe or looking good. If your Macgyver, feeling safe comes naturally. For the rest of us, we risk it for the sake of turning heads. You can stop scouring the Internet for that bulletproof Armani man bag. A champion has been found.

Shaved by a Man

Lately I've been able to get away with shaving once a week. Before heading out to the beach I'll do a quick and nasty shave. Rubbing sun screen into a face with week old chin hair makes me an odd looking Santa.

Today's shave is a little different. Firstly I'm not going to the beach and secondly I won't be doing the shaving. Cautiously jumping on an American Crew invitation passed on by Primped I accepted the offer of having a shave, by a stranger.

Smell like Tom Ford

Being one of the digital cogs in the Estèe Lauder online machine, I managed to score some products. As our little relationship was nearing to an end, they provided some parting gifts!
