My Recent Purchase: Burton Menswear Satchel

Recently, I found a great deal in Burton's.

A great leather satchel, with a detachable strap which turns it from a satchel to a suitcase. There's not a lot I can say about this bag, it really speaks for it self. A tough brown leather with a simplistic design. The bag also comes in black but I'm quite a fan of brown leather. Inside, with quite a regal deep purple for the lining, it also has two pockets which fit pens and your phone perfectly. The best part about it all. It was on sale for £25. I've been searching for a quality bag at a good price for a while and it's been very hard to do. Have a look and tell me what you think. If you know another place a pot less gentleman can get a great bag at a great price, let me know!

I was not paid for this post. I bought the bag myself. All opinions are honest and my own.

A Glass Of Wine

It's been about two months now that I've moved in to my new place with my other half.
That's quite a while, at the same time a tiny piece of my life.

What I realised when I got home after work tonight, is that we have't had the moment of moving in drinks, or housewarming drinks.
So tonight we decided to take that time to celebrate the fact we have a new house. I am a man with a taste for all sorts of drink.
A fine, whisky, vodkas with all sorts of mixer (I'll definitely be writing a post about black vodka soon), lagers, ales, liqueurs. I highly suggest taking a tour of the liqueurs behind a bar, you never know what you might find.
But for this occasion, a simple glass of red wine was perfect. Don't get me wrong, I will always say yes to a party, but this was exactly what it needed.

Fortunately for me, my other half's parents gave us a seven year old bottle of red wine (very giddy about this)

So I'm quite enjoying life at the moment.
Writing up blog post…

The Limp to Cheddar.

I know the name of the post may be a little odd and confusing but just bare with me.

The other half and I took an unexpected Trip to Cheddar with some friends.
Cheddar is like my little paradise in the UK. It's closed off and quiet, natural beauty every where and is the best place to escape the world for a short while.
The other half and I love an adventure, so it was perfect.

From Portsmouth it's only a two and a half hour journey, which isn't a particularly long drive.
Although half way through the drive, the engine light came one. The engine started to chug (It did sound like an American Muscle car... Silver lining and all that), the revs where up and down and the engine started getting hot.
We're yet to find out what was actually wrong with the car but we managed to crawl to Cheddar, spent a great evening in the hot tub with some drinks, and then managed to crawl back to Portsmouth again this morning.

I'm writing this post for those of you who might not be so prepared…
