Happy Endings

Most people at some point wish, or in some cases have actually visualised some aspect of their life as if it was a movie script. Usually this will follow the standard hollywood script. The protagonist will find themselves in a new situation which they have to adjust to. There will be a number of subplots along the way to help the narrative but essentially, the … Continue reading Happy Endings

King Eric

I’ve always been intrigued by unabashed arrogance and when it is coupled with brilliance (of the ‘legendary’ Barney Stinson kind), I just can’t get enough of it. This is why like so many other Manchester United fans, I am still captivated by the likes of Eric Cantona (a.k.a King Eric). His influence and wealth of ‘legendary’ moments during the 90’s were such that even today the … Continue reading King Eric

Consistency and Dependibility

When it comes to just about anything, new and exciting are great. Yet this means nothing without the constants in your life. For clothes these constants could represent your excellence centre. For food, I don’t have a nice encapsulating name but there are still a number of food places which I use as my measuring stick. Like most people, I enjoy going out for a … Continue reading Consistency and Dependibility

The Secret to Buying Clothes

Clothes are one of the simplest ways of expressing ourselves. In most cases these expressions revolve around sentiments such as freedom, success or individuality. Yet, if both of these statements are true, then why do we all have purchases we regret? In many cases, the answer probably includes the phrase ‘because it was on sale.’ This is where we have made our first mistake. The simple reason … Continue reading The Secret to Buying Clothes
