Quick little update on how my moustache is coming along for Movember. I’ve got past the initial, awkward, in between phase of it just looking like nothing, thankfully! A few people are actually commenting on it, which means we’re venturing into the territory of it being a credible face adornment. I’m not quite at the point where I can look at styling it or training it too much into any particular shape, and it’s still a little messy and patchy around the edges.Read More
I’ve been on this animal foods only diet for over four months now, and I thought I’d share my experience when it comes to other people finding out about it. I’ve been keen to try not to allow it to define me. It irks me when vegan’s feel the need to share it as a key point in their life at every opportunity, so I don’t want to full into the same trap. I will say, on the subject of vegans, that as of yet, I haven’t had any death threats or insults, and more often than not, most are interested to hear more about it and the thought process.
When I am talking about it to people, I never try and tell anyone they should do it. I’m not a doctor or nutritionist, so it’s not my place to give diet advice. All I can do is give my own personal account and share my experiences, which is what I aim to do.Read More
When it comes to fragrance, I’ve always been a fresh citrussy kind of guy. Aquatic accords and bergamot notes have always formed the backbone of what I would wear daily. The thing is, whilst they work really well during the summer months, once the nights draw in and the weather turns cold, they just don’t have the same feel.
My winter fragrance wardrobe is rather limited, but I do have 5 fragrances that I’m going to be rotating through for different occasions for the next few months. There are a few I don’t own as of yet, that would probably make this list, but I like to keep things real and showcase what I’m genuinely going to wear this winter.Read More
Back in September, I did a review of my Apple Watch Series 2. I mentioned in that post that I always felt compelled to wear it, at the expense of aesthetics, due to functionality and the fitness data it collects, which has been amazing for my continued health and weight loss mission. Well recently, with me questioning how invested I am in the Apple ecosystem, I’ve begun to wear my Apple Watch a lot less.
As I said in my review, the Apple Watch is an amazing piece of tech, and I do love it. It’s also really helped to change my life and get me to a point where I’m relatively happy with my body image and my general state of health, so I’m still glad I own it.Read More
Thought I should do a little update on my upper lip progress for Movember. The idea is that on November 1st, you should shave everything off completely, and then spend the month growing a full and luscious moustache. It’s been about a week since I shaved it all off, and progress is slower than I’d hoped for. At this point, I’m kind of looking at it and wondering if I’ll even be able to grow a decent mouth brow.
That being said, it has only been a week, and this is supposed to be a month long process, so I still have a long way to go before I’ll need to worry too much about my prowess in the lip warming department.Read More
Although it didn’t make it into my list of top foods I miss on the Carnivore Diet, I do really really love a proper baked New York Cheesecake. So when I stumbled upon a recipe for a zero carb version, I couldn’t not give it a try right?
I tried making zero carb ice cream back in week 6 of this journey, which didn’t go all that well to be honest, so this could be a bad idea! You gotta try these things right? Who knows, I may discover the holy grail of zero carb zen foods! Probably not Haha!Read More
