Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Now Men’s Fragrance For 2018 [Review]

Tuesday, 6th November, 2018

Tommy Now by Tommy Hilfiger Fragrance Review

Tommy Hilfiger is back with a new fragrance for men, introducing Tommy Now. Celebrating the power of now, as the new generation embraces change with positivity, optimism and refreshing style.

My journey with Tommy Hilfiger fragrances is a good one, as is many of my generation. The original Tommy by Tommy Hilfiger was released in 1994, and as a guy growing up in the late 90’s and 00’s, this was one of my signature scents. It was so easy to wear, it always smelled good and will always live on as one of my classic fragrances I owned.

Tommy Now is a new fragrance for 2018, with it’s own unique style. First I have to talk about the bottle.

Navy Uniqlo Roll Neck T Shirt - My Outfit

I think that roll neck jumpers are cool, and have been fashionable in the last couple of years. It’s taken me a while to get on board, but they do give you something extra for your wardrobe, and you can layer them.

But what if you don’t like wool? Can you get a long sleeve, roll neck T Shirt?

Yes, you can!

Football Manager 2019 Review - The Best Yet. By Michael 84

Yes guys, it’s that time of year again. It’s the time of new football game releases. A few weeks ago it was FIFA 19, and now it’s time for the big one, Football Manager 2019 was released this past Friday, and naturally I got it…The boxed disc version obviously!

It’s a yearly tradition, and an exciting time of the year for people like me who’ve been playing FM for years, previously Championship Manager and stretches all the way back to the glory days of the Amiga.

So what is it like, should you upgrade, what’s changed, what’s good and what is bad. Well…

Wearing My Canada Goose Jacket - The Perfect Coat For Winter This Year

UPDATED FOR 2018

Brrr it’s getting cold in ‘ere! Winter is here, or coming, depending on where in the world you live and when you’re reading this post 😉 One way or another you’ll be experiencing the depths of winter sometime soon, so you’ll need a winter coat or jacket to get you through a few horrible months of the miserable British winter weather.

Buying a good winter coat is not only important for the first year you purchase it, but it can become a good investment piece, lasting a good few winters before you need to splash out and buy another.

With that said, investing in a good jacket is not only worth it because you’ll be getting much better quality which will be noticeable when you wear it, as well as it lasting longer than a cheap and cheerful coat.

Saturday Night Outfit - Suede Jacket, Roll Neck Knit & Black Jeans

Hey guys!

I hope you had a good weekend. It feels kind of weird writing this on a Tuesday rather than a Monday, but that’s kind of what I’ve been doing lately…Last weekend feels like it was so far away!

It was freezing cold, Winter is definitely here! When I was wondering what to wear I was thinking about my overcoat, and even a scarf, but I thought that it wouldn’t actually be too cold, and didn’t bother; Although future nights out this Winter, I’ll be wrapping up with more layers!

Simple Every Day Style Tips For Guys To Upgrade Your Look

Want a few simple ways to upgrade your style but don’t know where to start?

If you’re looking to up your style game with minimal effort and cost, you may be able to do it with clothing and accessories you already have in your wardrobe. Everyone always says money can’t buy style, which is true, but most of those who are spending money also get the small details right, which is something anyone can do, with or without spending their cash.

The good thing is that it does not require you to already own a mountain of clothing, it’s all about using what you’ve already got, and making a couple of changes or additions which could really give your outfits an upgrade.

Small details are something which people notice, they’re often very subtle and almost look unintentional, but everyone who knows, knows that it’s deliberate.

Music Talk: October Playlist

Wednesday, 24th October, 2018

The Michael 84 Playlist

We’re almost at the end of October and it seems like the music has just begun for 2018! Robyn is releasing an album, and I’ve heard a couple of tracks from it which I am loving. I included Missing U on the September playlist, but for this one I can also include Honey, another track which I think is so cool.

Rebecca and Fiona also have another track, called Money. Once again I love this and have been listening to this (and Robyn) more or less every day at least once, usually more. It’s a feel good, uptempo kind of song which has that 90’s pop kind of feel to it which I will never stop loving.

There is also a song which is incredibly annoying, but I can’t get it out of my head. I hear it on the radio almost every morning, it’s Purple Disco Machine – Dished – How annoying is that hook!?! Annoying, but catchy, I can’t stop it going round in my head.

Here’s the playlist for October.
