Birthday & Midsummer Weekend

Midsummer T Shirt - Adidas Originals

Happy Sunday guys!

So this weekend it has been a really nice, chilled out and relaxed kind of affair. It was my birthday, and I wanted to just relax for most of the weekend. It was also Midsummer, which means drinking cider, and wearing what now seems to be my obligatory Midsummer t-shirt…Since I wear it once a year :mrgreen:

I had a couple of drinks of cider, my favourite which is Rekorderlig. The flavours are so good, and I’ve featured the Rekorderlig botanicals on the blog before. If you’ve never tried them now is the perfect time. They go down really well in the Summer.

Rekorderlig Botanicals Ciders for Midsummer

For my birthday I got some cool clothes, and so I’ll be posting the outfits and what I got over the coming days and weeks. There’s some nice pieces of menswear which I’ve wanted for a while, and since the sales are on, I’ve bought a few more things which I can’t wait to share.

Speaking of menswear…Fashion Friday. Some people asked where it was. I have tons of style and fashion related features for the summer which I need to do (like the latest floral shirt post) which I’ll be doing for a few weeks – So Fashion Friday aka the must have menswear for the week is taking a little break.

Even though the football season is over, since I am a footy fan, I always find some to watch. Yesterday I watched the Spain U21 vs Poland U21, and what a great match it was. Spain won 5-0 and were brilliant. I also caught the penalties in the women’s world cup with Norway & Australia. Later today England will be playing Cameroon, and tomorrow USA vs Spain.

Birthday cake and socks

Here’s a pic of my cake, a novelty cake of course which tasted really good. And then my socks, blue and yellow from Jollies, I really like these socks.

Have a great Sunday guys 🙂

The Best Floral Shirts For Men 2019

The hot weather makes me think of a couple of things, and when it comes to fashion one of those is floral shirts. I love the classic, solid, staple colour shirts you wear for most of the year, but if you want to make a statement in the warmer months, jumping on the printed shirt trend is the way to do it.

If you’re looking for tips on how to style a floral shirt, advice on where to shop for them or are just looking for some inspiration, you can sit back and read on 🙂

La Rive Blue Line Eau De Toilette – Lacoste Cool Play Alternative?

Wednesday, 19th June, 2019

La Rive Blue Line Eau De Toilette

As you’ll have read a while back, I have been using one of my favourite men’s scents of all time, Lacoste Cool Blue. I’ve had it for so many years, it’s quite unique and it’s one of those which has a special place in my heart when it comes to smells. But as you’ll have read, it’s no longer available, it’s discontinued and so I can’t get it again.

But can we get an alternative? I heard about a fragrance called La Rive Blue Line, and decided to check it out.

It has made a big comeback from the 1960’s, and seems here to stay for the Summer. We’ve hardly had the weather for in lately, but hopefully that will change very soon.

Back To The 2000’s Music: M2M

M2M - Shades Of Purple CD - Back To The 00's

Last time I was looking at the 90’s band Shampoo, and this time round I am taking a look at another duo, this time from the early 2000’s, M2M.

M2M were a Norwegian pop music duo comprising Marit Larsen and Marion Raven, but I only knew them as M2M. You may have heard of them, or at least one of their songs may be familiar to you, which I’ll get on to.
