Who Pays On The First Date? The Man, Woman Or A Split? Here’s How To Know

Monday, 9th September, 2019

Who Pays On The First Date? Man Or Woman? Your Question Answered

Let’s talk about the minefield that is dating. It’s a crazy, scary and big world out there. The first date is the first step.

You eventually find a woman, ask her out, and at the end of the date the cheque comes…There’s the awkward feeling and a small moment…

Who pays on the first date?

There’s of course a ton of advice, some traditional, some more modern. Traditionally It was always expected that men would pay for women for the first date, and in fact for all dates, but we’re in a whole new world now. In fact, we’ve been in the modern times for years now.

Here’s my guide into the first date, and the awkwardness of who’s going to be paying for it.

August Bank Holiday Weekend 2019

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Did you enjoy the Bank Holiday? It’s always a good one, but sad, since it basically marks the end of the Summer, and it’s the last Bank Holiday of the year (not counting Christmas obviously).

We actually had a really nice weekend in terms of the weather too…It was really hot! And it’s still going right now, although that is supposed to be coming to an end.

The Best Binge Worthy TV Shows This Year From Amazon, SKY Atlantic & More

The Best TV Series To Binge Watch Or Catch Up On In 2019

So far 2019 has been a pretty good year for TV. I’ve watched quite a few programmes, most I have featured on the blog, and some I haven’t.

I thought it would be good to write a round up of the best TV series to binge watch or catch up on this year so far. So if you’ve not watched these, or fancy re-watching something, here’s some of the TV I’ve been watching this year.

There’s been so much to watch, from Amazon Prime and Netflix to the more traditional ways of watching TV from SKY Atlantic, Channel 4 and BBC.

p.s. there’ll be no mentions of dragons or anything like that, I don’t watch that show ๐Ÿ˜‰

Summer Of 8 For Film Night

Summer Of 8 Film Review

For my latest film night, I watched to watch something which I hadn’t seen, so I done my usual browse around Amazon Prime to find something. I wanted something like, and saw something called Summer of 8. I checked out the trailer, and it looked like it could be good.

I love coming of age films, I love the Summer, and this is basically both of those two things put together.

Film Night – The Goods: Live Hard Sell Hard

The Goods Live Hard Sell Hard Film Review

Hey guys, I hope you’ve had a good weekend so far!

For my latest film night, I wanted to watch something light and funny, but after looking around Amazon Prime, I couldn’t find something which I liked and wanted to watch, which I hadn’t seen before. I haven’t bought any Blu Rays/DVDs for ages, so looked to see what I had. I found The Goods: Live Hard Sell Hard which I haven’t seen in so long, so decided to watch that.

Birthday & Midsummer Weekend

Sunday, 23rd June, 2019

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Dip Dye Sunday Style & What I’ve Been Up To This Weekend

Dip Dye Sweatshirt - My Sunday Style Edit For A Laid Back Look

Happy Sunday guys!

I have to say, I feel pretty well rested and chilled out today! It has started as one of those days which looks gloomy, but if you go outside it’s really warm. I might not get another chance to wear my dip dye sweatshirt again, so I’ve decided to pull it on since it’s a relaxed kind of day.

Last night was pretty good, there was football, boxing and music, aka my song of the summer which I will listen to at least once a day…More on that below

Gumball 3000 x Kappa Capsule Collection 2019

One of the coolest collaborations of the Summer launched a few days ago at Selfridges between the two iconic brands, Gumball 3000 famed for it’s car adventures stretching 3000 miles, and Kappa, one of the go-to retro sportswear brands of Italy. I was going to feature a few pieces in my last fashion Friday, but I thought the capsule collection deserved to shine in a post of it’s own.

Here’s some of the key pieces from the capsule collection which caught my eye.
