Fenwick Christmas Window 2019 In Newcastle By Michael 84

It’s been that time of the year again, it’s Christmas which means a few things, and in Newcastle it means the Fenwick Christmas Window.

If you’re not from Newcastle or you’re just unaware, Fenwick dresses up their window every year in some kind of theme for the festive season. Sometimes it’s holiday related, such as last year when it was the Snowman, and other times it’s related to other childhood memories.

In 2019 the Fenwick Christmas Window is Charlie and the chocolate factory. It’s not something I ever loved as a kid, but it’s a story that virtually everyone knows and remembers. This year it also has the Christmas Market to contend with, which is on Northumberland Street too.

As always, each window tells a different part of the story, and here’s every window for you to see if you haven’t already checked it out.

Here’s some tips on how to buy fragrances online without smelling them.

As you’ll know I am quite a fan of football and football documentaries and films, and this has been in my watch list for quite a while. Leeds United, Take Us Home is another football documentary, this one showcasing the 2018-19 season for Leeds.

I am somewhat of a veteran of football documentaries now (I should make a best of list), loving the Man City All Or Nothing doc, Inside Borussia Dortmund and Six Dreams to name only three. This one is of a similar structure, following Leeds through the 2018-19 season.

Suit Button Rules - How To Button Your Jacket

Did you know there are rules for buttoning suits?

Neither did I, but there is.

However, the rules are very simple to follow, and once you know, you’ll be looking around at the other guys to see if they’re breaking these rules.

It seems kind of silly to the mainstream that such rules even exist, and in fact many don’t know, so you can break these without anyone noticing. But, if you do know, you can do this right, and be safe knowing you’re not committing  this fashion faux pas.
