Chilling out in front of the fire with a good film or book is not to be knocked. Sometimes you just wanna kick back and chill, put on your sweats and relax. Onesies have been really popular for a few years now, it all started in women’s fashion, the ultimate item of clothing to relax, but it has moved into men’s clothing with many guys buying them for sitting around.
OnePieceare the innovative Norwegian brand which have popularised these, and have a huge number of designs, colours and styles which suit both guys and girls. Super soft luxury cotton and a quality zip, with oversized hoods for comfort they are key to the chill out day or night. OnePiece have even done a collaboration with One Direction, and you can find a few designs from the collab.
The men’s Christmas design comes in at £139, the classic £98 and the college £129

The Famous Grouse have a great idea and are offering something really unique, your own, personalised bottle of The Famous Grouse. They created this for me, The Famous Michael 84 which comes in their trademark logo bottle with a couple of customisations. The front is a special version of their label, and the back has a message on it along with the text you’ve put on the front.
As you can see, my bottle reads “The Famous Michael 84″ and the back: Men’s Fashion & Lifestyle Blog. Written By Michael Adams with my blog address
I think this is a really good idea, and perfect for Christmas if you know someone who loves whisky. You can get them a truly unique bottle of alcohol, which I am sure will go down very well
If you read my blog or know me you’ll know that I support Spain and always have done since I was a kid, and I always buy the Spain kits, usually the home and away, and then the goalkeeper’s home and away too. Usually I get the home shirt first, this was unveiled a few months ago on my blog, and have been available to buy for a while. I have not got that yet, but I have got the brand new Spain home goalkeeper shirt ready for the 2014 World Cup, with official Casillas printing
The goalie shirts are usually hard to get, but Adidas have discovered people outside Spain actually want them, so are selling them. This is direct from Adidas, and they printed the official name and number, but you may notice something missing…No front number! I have spoken to them and they insist that they do not print the front number. This is odd because you’ll know that all international shirts have a small number printed on the front as well as the back. It’s actually a FIFA rule in the World Cup.
The shirt is a combination of blues, with gold trimming, and I really like it. It’s finished off with a two tone Spain crest, something they’re doing on all the shirts and training gear, this being blue and gold, the home shirt being all gold and red.
The away shirt and GK away top are yet to be unveiled, with some suggesting black for the away top, with a yellow stripe through the middle.
The shirts come complete with the FIFA World Cup Winners 2010 badge
Christmas time is almost here, and there are lots of blu rays and DVDs out at the moment, I got another two for my little collection 2 Guns came out on Monday and it’s one I have wanted to watch for a while, it looks a good action film, and I don’t really have many of them
The Hangover Part III there is nothing I need to say about this. I have seen the first two and i’m sure you have as well, and this is the finale.
Have you been watching Stand Up For The Week on Channel 4? I have been watching it for the past 2 or 3 series, but I think this series, series 5 is the best yet. Paul Chowdhry was on the past few series, but in Series 5 he is the host, and is backed up by some really funny comedians. If you have never seen the show before, it’s topical comedy, with each comedian taking on a different subject. Simon Evans with his posh middle Britain, Romesh Ranganathan doing sports, Josh Widdicombe with current news, Seann Walsh and Angela Barnes.
The current series is almost finished, with the last show this Friday at 23:05 on C4, but you can watch them on 4OD…You really should!
Today has been a lazy day. I was out in the town last night, and had a few drinks from the usual haunts such as Science, Revolution, Union Rooms, Popolo and Alvino to name a few. It was pretty good, no crazy Cookie Monster cocktails this week though I just watched The Great Gatsby which was quite a good film. It’s on for a long time, 2 hours 20 minutes but the story is good if not a bit complicated at times :p I need to buy some more films, The Hangover III is on my list, and I will get that and 2 Guns which stars Wahlberg and Denzel soon.
I have spent most of today looking for Christmas presents and ordering random things online…Christmas is coming soon! Only 2 full weeks to go then it’s time, if you’re ordering anything online you should do so ASAP, which is what I am doing :p
Christmas is not far away, and one of the easiest gifts to get a guy is a new fragrance. It’s said that the most popular item to buy on Christmas Eve is actually aftershaves and perfumes, they are easy to get a hold of in the shops, and are usually universally loved by all. But which scent should you go for this Christmas? Here are five ideas which I really like.
Invictus by Paco Rabanne – It’s the new scent from Paco Rabanne and it comes in a very distinctive looking bottle, which is like a trophy. The scent is a masculine woody type without being too overpowering.
Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf – I got this last year and I really like it. It’s another masculine type of smell, and seems to have a bit of an orange twang to it.
Noir by Tom Ford – There are two models of Noir. This, the black bottle is an EDP, Eau De Parfum, and the Noir in the white frosted bottle is an EDT, Eau De Toilette. The difference is that the EDP is a stronger concentration, so it will last a lot longer. As for the smell, it’s a manly and sensuous type of fragrance, perfect for a night out.
MAN by Bulgari – One of my favourite scents so I have to include it in this guide. Great for nights out, it’s a modern mans scent.
For Him by Narciso Rodriguez – A slightly woody but elegant fragrance. I like this because it’s off most peoples radar so you don’t have to worry about smelling like every other guy.
