Decisions Decisions - Smart Phones and Ecosystems

I’m in a quandary! We live in a connected smart phone world and the device you choose, is the one you’re going to have to live with day in and day out, come rain or shine… so it’s important to make the right decision!

I’ve always been an iPhone guy. I had the LG Prada phone back in 2007, before the iPhone was released in the UK, and then since then, I’ve only ever had Apple products. Obviously I’ve been aware of other brands of device, but I’ve never really been interested in them… until now!

Fragrance Review - Zara Vibrant Leather

I wouldn’t normally be interested in own brand fragrances from the high street, but I’d heard some mutterings that Zara’s offerings were surprisingly good, so figured I’d give a couple a whirl. Although listed on the website at £19.99 for 120ml of Eau de Parfum, I picked mine up in store for £12.99, so Vibrant Leather is nothing if not good value for money! So even if this is mediocre, you can’t really go wrong with it right?

The perfumer who created Vibrant Leather for Zara is Jerome Epinette. Other brands he’s created fragrances for include Atelier Cologne, who I’m a huge fan of, with Clementine California being on of my top summer fragrances, and Musc Impériale, which has become one of my favourite scents for Autumn.

Childhood Nostalgia

Maybe it’s a mid life crisis, I’m on a bit of a nostalgia trip right now. It’s fun looking back at some of the things you did or enjoyed during your childhood. As a kid you do what you like, rather than what others think is cool. It’s something that’s missing in this modern social media world. So I’ve been looking back at who I used to be, and getting back in touch with my inner child.

What’s amazed me is how many aspects of my life growing up are still relevant to the things I’m interested now. This post is quite long, so I recommend getting a cup of your favourite childhood beverage, sitting back and coming on a journey with me through some of the things that have defined me as a person, and what I plan to embrace more of in the future!

Fragrance Review - Atelier Cologne Musc Impérial

Of all the fragrances in my ever expanding collection, one of my favourites is by Atelier Cologne. I picked up my bottle of Clementine California at the airport before heading off to New York for work, and it’s one of the scents I wore most over the summer. If you like fresh citrusy vibes, you really need to check it out!

Anyway, I was super excited then Atelier Cologne asked if I wanted to try one of their other fragrances. A few days later and I had a bottle of the 2015 released Musc Impérial, along with a second bottle of Clementine California! Yay!!!!!

Carnivore Diet Update

I’ve decided to change how I’m doing these carnivore diet updates. I’m still committed to the diet for the time being, however, weekly updates seem to be a little pointless as it’s fast becoming my new normal, and that results in less new stuff to write about.

To that end, I’m going to go to more sporadic updates. I’ll be doing a monthly wrap up, but also pepper the blog with other more specific posts relating to my experiences or things I’ve discovered. Should keep things more interesting, and be easier for me to keep track of. I’ll be honest, I’m not entirely sure which week I’m in anymore! I think it’s week 12 or 13 now, but without going back through my calendar I couldn’t tell you for sure! hahaha!

My First Time #12 - World of Warcraft

Released in 2004, World of Warcraft is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG). It’s also arguably the most popular MMORPG of all time with over 100 million registered user accounts by 2017 and grossing almost $10 Billion in revenue, the highest of any gaming franchise ever. Of course registered accounts doesn’t mean active players, but with over 10 million paid monthly subscribers currently, it’s fair to say that World of Warcraft is still an incredibly popular game.
