Black Jeans With Black Shirt: Men’s Style Outfit Idea

Men's Style Outfit Ideas - Black Shirt With Black Jeans
Can you own too many black shirts?

You probably can, but I love them. I think I have 4 or 5 now, and this is my latest one, from Mango MAN. I really love the fit of the shirt, it’s a slim fit, and as we know when it comes to style, fit is the all important factor when you want to dress well. For this outfit, I have gone for one colour, and styled the black shirt with some black jeans.

Spandau Ballet Film – Soul Boys of the Western World

Spandau Ballet Film

So for my latest film night I was running short on time and it was quite late, so couldn’t watch something with a long run time. I didn’t know what kind of film I was in the mood for, but I do love documentary-style films, and came across Soul Boys of the Western World, the Spandau Ballet film.

I am not a Spandau Ballet fan, their music and their time was well before mine, but I do know their songs, like everyone else in the world. They were big, huge in this country, and it all ended as it usually does with groups or bands.

The Best Autumn Fragrances For Men

The Best Men's Fragrances For Autumn 2018

Leaves are falling, it’s starting to get cold, it must be Autumn! We’ve long left the Summer behind, and now you’ll be thinking about what are the best fragrances for Autumn.There’s so many scents which can work for this season, but I’ve picked out those which are specially suited to this time of year.

The colour most associated with Autumn is brown, we think of leaves falling and so woody scents are the perfect choice. We don’t need the heavy hitters of super warming scents more suited to Winter, but something to warm you up nontheless.

Notes to look out for when choosing a fragrance are woody, masculine, musky, spicy, aromatic and floral types of scents. Best avoided are the citrus heavy, sweet, aquatic or fresh scents which are better suited to the Spring or Summer.

Just Friends For Film Night

Just Friends Film Review

Hey guys!

So it was another film night, and I was having a browse around on Amazon Prime to see if there were any good films which I hadn’t seen. There’s a lot of ones I’ve seen before, but I wanted something new, at least to me, and also something a bit light.

I came across a film called Just Friends, which seemed to be quite light, and is a comedy with Ryan Reynolds, Amy Smart and Anna Faris. It’s a rom-com type of film, and has a stereotypical and predictable plot, but that’s not a bad thing.

Tattoos On Trend: Why I’ll Never Get A Tattoo

Wednesday, 12th September, 2018

Tattoo? No Thanks. Why I'll never jump on the tattoo trend

I can’t believe I’ve been writing this blog for all these years and I’ve never talked about one of the biggest trends in probably 10 – 15 years; It’s unisex and universal, I’m talking about tattoos. As you’ve seen in all my photos I don’t have any tattoos, and I’ve never felt the need to get one either. To be honest, I just don’t really ‘get’ them.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate tattoos or people who have them, I’m not against them or anything like that. I just don’t really understand why you’d want to get one, especially some of the ink people are putting on their bodies; It’s pretty crazy (even stupid) stuff. This is not really a guide or tips on reasons for you not to get one, it’s not to dissuade you, this is just some of my reasons for why I wouldn’t personally get one.

Why does it seem like everyone has a tattoo these days?

I think tattoos are just a trend, and the fad that is dying out.

This is definitely going to be Unpopular Opinion…
