Editorial: Autumn and armpits, an odorous life


It’s Friday, it’s the end of October, and even the most ardent fans of Summer will no doubt be aware that Autumn is in full effect. This is my favourite time of year for talking a walk in the woods. Not just the colours, but the sounds, the smells and the views. Good stuff. And it offers up some great…

The weeks that were – a bumper catch-up


What with convalescence and a long Easter holiday I quite forgot to post my weekly summary of Instagram images. To make up for this unacceptably poor level of service, I hereby offer up an almost full selection. And to add further joy to the event, a lot of the images are of the evil twins, or triplets, in some cases.…

What they don’t mention on the front, or the search for shampoo…


Guys, I feel I have failed you. A while back I posted quite epic (if I may say so myself) series of shaving cream reviews, with a strong focus on content, as in points deducted for mixing dodgy ingredients into the mix. Then I posted about being cosmetically cautious, paying attention to ingredients in everyday products you use on or…

Be cosmetically cautious


I am of the firm opinion that when it comes to cosmetics and grooming, men really have a very short list of products that are justifiable. Part of being a man is that you don’t spend a lot of time fussing, preening, primping, lotioning, peeling, foundationing, epilating or whatever. Isn’t it bad enough the our women feel compelled to do…

The Great Shaving Cream Investigation – Summary


An epic six rounds of one on one shaving cream combat has come to an end. 12 products, each claiming to be the ultimate, have been tried on the battleground that my face became. The left side versus the right side, stainless steel blades reducing stubble to rubble. At this point you will no doubt have read up on all…

A collection of Instagrammar


And before I know what has happened, it’s Friday again and time for the weekly collection of what I posted to my Instagram over the past week. To add some flavour this weeks adventures include cows, hedgehogs and ecologically grown vegetables. Just when you thought there couldn’t be more snaps of buttons, boots and fabrics, I up my game with more fun…

The Great Shaving Cream Investigation – Round 6


Welcome to round 6 of the Great Shaving Cream Investigation! This is the final regular round of the series, with just a single champion meets the underdog round to go. I’ll keep it brief, as I know you are quite desperate to know the outcome of this latest round. Am I right or am I right? To look back at…

The week that was, Instagrammatically


Oh my, it’s back again, that weekly roundup of my wrongdoings on Instagram. Or rightdoings, judging my the number of regular like-clickers that honour me with their well-directed presses of the Like-button. In any case, another Autumnal week with the chilly mornings requiring full wool, jacket, hat and gloves, and the sunny afternoons requiring all the warm gear being backpacked…

The Great Shaving Cream Investigation – Round 5


Welcome to round 5 of the Great Shaving Cream Investigation! As exclusively revealed in last weeks post (here), this is quite likely the second to last of the exciting rounds. I realise many of my readers will have started to eagerly look forward to the next installment, but we will at some point have to publish the final results, select the…

That weekly Instagram collection again…


A briefer collection of Instagram images than usual this week. After a stumbling start, where I actually didn’t post anything for a couple of days at all, I got back in to my stride towards the end of the week. I aim for at least one image a day, sometimes two, and very rarely three. Lots of new posts in…
