Train Journey Essentials

It's the weekend and I'm sure some of you lovely readers are, like me, loving the sunshine and getting the most of it here in more often than not, rainy Britain.

Today I was off to spend the day and have dinner for the inlaw's birthday. Getting the train is the quickest way there so as I'm sure some of you may be taking to the trains to visit your summer locations and thought maybe a travellers guide to what you might need on a train might be useful.
The London commuters will know that a train in the sun is not always the best of fun (especially when the air conditioning is broken). So here are some things that might take you're mind off the heat, the un-comfy chairs and loud passengers.
1. Your Phone I've always found this one of my most essential pieces of 'equipment' for a boring train journey. Flicking through social Media, messaging friends/family, playing games and (sadly) clearing out and de-cluttering my phone always helps the time go by. But, it does…

The Morning Routine

As a gentleman, you'll need to be on top form, looking sharp as well as thinking sharp. The morning is an important part of the day and can sometimes set the tone of the day, so getting up and ready can really bring out the most of you're day.
The most important point is simple. Get a good nights sleep. After a big night out, getting up and feeling fresh in the morning is a 'little' bit harder.
Getting up properly is also key. For example, if you have work during the day, don't leave getting up until 20 minutes before you leave, give yourself a bit of time to wake up. An hour or so is all it takes to feel that much better. I can't count the number of times I've got up late, had to rush and have felt the consequences through the day. An added bonus of getting up earlier is reducing the risk of being late. No employer, whether it's a current employer or a new one you are meeting  at a job interview, likes people who are late. Having your head straight in …

What It Is To Be A Gentleman/Luxury Living Blogger

This is a new project for me and I want to get as much out of it as possible, meet new, like minded people and hopefully along the way give some of you lovely readers some helpful advice.

Today, much like future days, I did a bit of networking to find people who write the same kind of content of me, think the same way as me and maybe, help me share my new project with other like minded people.
I found that there's quite a variety of different writers. You have gentleman fashion bloggers, luxury food bloggers, luxury travel bloggers and the rarity that is a luxury lifestyle bloggers. All of which are brilliant writers and all show great levels of class.
Knowing the blogging community and how vast and wide it is, us Gentlemen and luxury life bloggers are quite a rarity and small part of the blogging community.

We're all after one thing. To show general public that it's easy to live in luxury. whether that's food, lifestyle, fashion or food. We all want to do it to GQ magazin…

Wining & Dining

Now this is a very big part of showing your gentlemanly traits. Dinner.
Now this doesn't just include dining with that special someone, this can be dining with colleagues, clients, potential clients and family. I'm not just talking about the everyday evening meal, I'm talking about the fine art of 'dining'
Now of course, dinner doesn't always have to be out, lets be honest, some days/weeks/months it can break the bank. It all really depends on who you're dining with and how well you know them. Sure, having dinner with your partner and family at home is always a great cheap way to dine. But colleagues and clients you don't particularly know so well, it may be a better idea to take them out.
Being a gentleman is a big part on dinner. It brings ALL of the basics together. The manners, the dress, and general food knowledge always helps make the meal.
There are three steps you'll want to prepare before you get to the part where you actually eat.
First - You w…
