London: Must Do Experiences 2019

2019 fast approaches, and so does a fresh new calendar that you need to fill up. London is an amazing city to be in, but why waste your time doing the same old, and standing in lines outside Madame Tussaud and paying £40 for a cramped ride on the London Eye? Below are a couple of experiences that you should enjoy in London in 2019.

Enjoy Rugby in Luxury*

February and March bring tons of rugby matches to the capital as the 6 Nations begin. It’s one thing to catch a match in the pub with your mates, but it’s another to enjoy 6 Nations hospitality at Twickenham Stadium and see the real deal. Catch England v Italy, England v France and England v Scotland in Twickenham. Choose which package you want, available in a range of prices and make the most of it! My family are Welsh, so I’ll be rooting for Wales to win as always!

BOOHOO MAN x PEPSI

A few months ago I was contacted by Boohoo Man in relation to their super cool Summer ’18 collaboration with Pepsi, The Art of Football Capsule Collection.

This range is inspired by street art all over the world and brings together the worlds of art and football. I’m becoming more and more of a big ol’ art nerd, I did go as Van Gogh for Halloween, after all. And I’m actually getting back into football for once, with a fantasy team named after my new hero, Mo Salah.

The kind folks at Boohoo gifted me a couple of pieces to shoot and style.

Beard Care for the man with sensitive skin*

Spoilers: the man is me. I’m the man with sensitive skin.

The fine folks over at Murdock London kindly gifted me some of the products featured in this post and they’ve revolutionised my face a little bit. They’re experts in men’s grooming and I truly appreciate any help as I’m a man with ridiculously sensitive skin that likely has razor burn on it at any given point during the warmer months. And a beard that I just can’t take care of because I can barely take care of myself!

Today I thought I’d share a couple of products which help to protect my skin and beard whilst shaving and in general daily life, life is tough enough without your facial hair reeking havoc upon your face.

So for a bit of background, I recently decided to overhaul the shaving system I’d had in place for the best part of a decade since I began to shave my face at 13 years old. Still waiting on that growth spurt but got the facial hair pretty god damn early. The reason behind this was that my face was just getting ruined by shaving, my skin was in tatters, it was awful.

My skin became rough to the touch every time I shaved it, I’d have days of itching and razor burn and nothing seemed to be soothing it. This began to effect my confidence as no one wants to be going out with a rash on their neck that can’t be hidden, I loved wearing shirts with collars as they’d hide it a little bit. As someone who owns about 4,000 band tees, this wasn’t the life I wanted to live!

When I’m referring to shaving, I more so mean tidying up the lines of my facial hair and getting the runaways on the cheeks and tidying my neckline up. That’s also something I’ve changed thanks to Jonathan’s advice on Queer Eye, he’s a grooming guru. My beard began to suffer as I wasn’t taking proper care of my facial hair, I didn’t know what to do so sorta did nothing about it instead.

In many ways I’m very lucky because I grow facial hair very quickly, I can mess around with lengths and styles because it’ll be back to normal in a couple of days. The downside of this is that my face needs constant management or I’ll become a yeti who’s facial hair joins his eyebrows in the north and chest hair in the south. And said facial hair would be extremely dry, unstyled and the poor skin beneath would be destroyed.

I reached out on Twitter because the blogging community knows what’s UP and essentially told me to stop doing everything horrifically wrong and begin from scratch. My buddy Ryan Mules gave me some amazing recommendations, so let’s run through some of the products in my new and improved shaving and beard care routine.

Summer BBQ memories with BADGER ALE [AD]

There’s no denying that summer in London is glorious- for the whole 3 weeks it lasts. Which is still a whole week longer than it lasts back home in the North.

Whilst it’s bloody beautiful and sunny, and there’s tons to do here, if you live in London, you likely have little to no outdoor space, meaning you have to get extra creative during the summer months. Today I’m partnering with Badger Ale to talk about some of my favourite BBQ memories from this year to celebrate their new BBQ shed!

 I’ve lived in three towns/cities in my 22 good years. My hometown, Liverpool and London. In the last two, I’ve had no real outdoor space, come summer it can be hell. At least in my current London home we have access to a patch of roof that we’re 90% sure can take our weight, and can only be accessed via a window propped completely open. Some would say that’s ‘the dream’.

Most would call it horrible.
