INTERVIEWED: A BLOKE'S EYE VIEW

Welcome to INTERVIEWED, a series of discussions and chats with creators of all kinds.


Today we're joined by my friend Carl from A Bloke's Eye View, a straight talking blogger who talks about all things men's fashion and lifestyle in his own way!

D: What do you do as a creator?


C: Around two and a half years ago I created my own little space on the internet  where I could talk about different subjects, especially ones which I love. The main subjects I cover are fashion, lifestyle, tech and male grooming. I believe I have a unique and original writing style which is always 100% honest.

FriendsFest 2017


One of the things I've been looking forward to most this year is FriendsFest! An annual (it seems!) mini festival celebrating one of TV's most iconic and most beloved series - Friends!

For it's sophomore year the festival toured around England and Wales, ending in Clissold Park, London, which is where Amy and I had a look!

The event was sold out far in advance of the actual event, tickets cost around £25 a pop for entry and a set tour...a price which is kinda overpriced, but you gotta let that nostalgia factor run wild.

My Favourite Podcasts

As a commuter spending up to 2 hours a day travelling to/from work, I have a lot of time to kill listening to music and podcasts. I can't really read anything as I walk, so unless I want to walk into a lamppost or oncoming traffic, my hearing is the only sense I can titillate with that time, and that may be the worst thing I've ever written.


Whilst these are my exact headphones and my laptop, the image is not mine

Here are some of the best podcasts I've been listening to over the last few years:

INTERVIEWED: THE MALE STYLIST

Welcome to INTERVIEWED, a series of discussions and chats with creators of all kinds.


Today we're joined by a very fashionable gent, known for his expertise and insight into the blogging world and how social media platforms are sorta becoming our enemy: Adam of The Male Stylist.

D: What is it you do as a creator?

A: My work on The Male Stylist has been about producing content that speaks to men of all ages about style, grooming and body image. Much of this has been about helping men find their personal style, what helps them feel confident in their day-to-day lives and ways of achieving timeless looks.

The Social Effects of Creating

I love the term 'creator', it encompasses so much. I considered myself a creator when I exclusively made YouTube videos back in 2013. Now almost four years later, I write, I blog and barely create YouTube content due to lack of time, not lack of desire.

Over those four long years I've made so many friends, made so many connections and strengthened a billion other bonds of friendship. This reads like a lyrics to a late nineties Pokemon theme tune and I'm here for it.



Through creating content on YouTube I got in contact with Callie, who's ended up being one of my favourite people on the internet, we got to hang out a few months ago and eat sushi- great times. Online crossing into real life is my favourite thing. I also met Jess, Adele and Hannah. We got some drinks, drank like teenagers in the street and had a fine old time. I visited Hannah in Brighton last weekend and ate so much food I thought we might die. All of these friendships stemmed from deciding to switch the camera on one day and make some very crappy videos.

Burning out

A short while ago I burned out. 

Hard.

Physically and mentally, I was just fried. It all traced back to something so simple - I never take a moment to just stop and relax, to just stop and exist in that moment.
