BIC SHAVE CLUB Has Arrived #Ad

When I think of razors, and particularly BIC razors, I always think of my first shave with their iconic orange one blade. Nostalgia of very first shaves with dad aside, BIC’s latest innovation, the all new and fantastic BIC SHAVE CLUB, offers the first ever refillable shaver from this time-tested, family-run company. This really is a whole new innovation and will save you money (not to mention time and frustration over finding the right blades at all the wrong moments). So what is so special about the new BIC SHAVE CLUB razor? Well let me tell you, first and foremost… [Read More]

Suits For Every Occasion

Over the last couple of years I have had to wear a suit on a more regular basis than normal. If I’m honest this is something I have had to do before, however I have always been a jeans and T-shirt with a hoodie type of person. Previously I have had to only wear a suit on my wedding day or maybe a christening of a friends baby. As I said I have to wear a suit more often, because I need to look smart and professional when meeting brand PR’s, or attending blogging award nights or conferences. This is… [Read More]

Physical Violence in Relationships 

I recently read a post by Alan at Omg it’s a girl about domestic violence, and that in Ireland there is a campaign underway. The statistics of domestic violence that Alan quoted were massive, but it didn’t surprise me one bit, especially the figures of domestic violence against men by their partners, wive’s or girlfriends. The post brought back some personal unhappy memories for me. Which I hadn’t thought about for a long while, but felt need to write it down. For years the stigma attached to men being abused by the women in their lives has been swept under… [Read More]

My Personal MOT with TENA Men 

To start the New Year I have teamed up with Tena Men to give myself a personal MOT. After all you wouldn’t drive around in a car without an MOT and the human body is no different. Men in general take very little notice of their health and well being. I’m sure we have inherited this from our youth. For me personally I was oblivious to health and fitness in my 20’s, but as I have got older I have discovered I’m not indestructible and the human body just like a car wears out. At the start of a new… [Read More]

Infertility is not just a woman’s issue

Sperm Check Fertility Test

As many people who read my blog know, my wife and I had IVF to conceive to our twins. Like others who go down the route of IVF, a lot of the focus is on the woman. You see society puts pressure on women when it comes to fertility issues, but did you know that studies show men contribute to 50% of infertility cases. The misconception that men don’t have a ‘biological clock’ is simply untrue. Yes, you get exceptions like Billy Joel for example who had a child aged 66, but that’s not the norm. Male fertility requires men… [Read More]

The Household Chores

In our house we seemed to have just naturally shared out the household chores. There are some I always do and some my wife always does. This is purely by accident and not design. My wife is definitely the cook in our house. Yes I can cook, but I will admit I am very basic with my cooking. My wife however, is much more inventive and cooks delicious meals with lots of imagination. Although, I do a very mean barbecue, if I do say so myself.  My wife pointing out the oven to me! I definitly have a element of… [Read More]

Are men finally starting to show their emotions

Is blogging the start of men showing a more emotional side of their character or has it been changing slowly over the years? Has it become more acceptable for men to show emotion and cry at special moments in their lives or a sad film? I don’t blog anonymously, but I have been able to blog about things in my life that were tough times. Things that were very emotional, but through blogging I have been able to give myself some closure on events that happened to me I know. I would never have been able to talk to friends… [Read More]

Difficulty showing emotion

For a long time I have found it difficult to show my emotions and feelings. To say exactly what I’m thinking. I sort of think that this isn’t a good thing, but it is something I find very difficult. I’ve tried to work out why this. Is it down to the fact that in my childhood I had become desensitised to showing my feelings due to the fact that I grew up in a very dysfunctional family. One which saw its fair share of violence and alcohol abuse. I find I only cry when it relates to either my wife,… [Read More]
