needy relationship

Remember that time your best friend got that insane girlfriend that he couldn’t be without if they were both off work/school/college? Remember how you felt about the fact that he was a complete non-entity in your life now and that he was a write off every time someone decided to plan a lad’s trip or night out? Of course you remember it, it’s like losing a limb. But there are a few easy ways to know when you’ve fallen into the same trap. One that can be almost impossible to escape from; the needy relationship. Go on a night out with the lads/girls and see how many times someone says […]

male facial hair

As a 30 year old “man” who can’t yet grow a proper beard; this is admittedly a touchy subject for me. And the fact that beards have been an ongoing trend for a few years now has meant it hasn’t been an easy time for me. Seeing people strut around with beards that frankly they do not deserve makes me sad and angry at the same time. A distinguished beard is something that everyone wants at some time in their lives, well every man anyway, so the fact that it has so far eluded me is both unfair and a bit of a joke in all honesty. The question is […]

male grooming

Looking good has taken a whole new twist for the boys. Out with the rugged and scraggly look that used to be the way to a girl’s heart or even just a girl’s bed and in with the manicured, pedicured, waxed, bronzed, gelled and flawless look that is now expected. Starting at the very top, the old school mop of hair is a thing of the past. Now, the very least expected is some form of ‘faded’ hairstyle absolutely coated in some kind of wax, gel or mousse. It must be to perfection quite literally meaning not a hair out of place lads. I suppose we can be grateful that […]

There are often times though when the stresses of life mean relaxing and going to sleep are easier said than done.

They’ve finally cracked and sent you packing, it feels like the whole world is falling down around you because now you find yourself trying to ease your way back into the single life without being reminding of him/her by everything you see. They say every cloud has a silver lining, and this is no different. Being dumped has its positives and the options are there. THE REBOUND My favourite and possibly the best one of all. Go flying straight back into the single life with a good old rebound. It might be someone that was sniffing around your relationship sensing doom before you were, it might be an ex who […]

things to do in ireland this summer

We may have already missed the boat as far as ideal conditions are concerned for this one but a visit to the Cliffs of Moher is a must for every Irish person or Harry Potter fan. If you are close to West Clare and have never been, then it’s got to be moved up your bucket list. The breath-taking views accompanied by the sheer thrill of watching the water crash against the rocks is something that no photo can capture. As for the Harry Potter reference, the cliffs were used in the sixth movie where Harry and Dumbledore head to find the horcrux in a cave. One for the sports […]
