The Columbia Men’s Powder Lite Hooded Jacket is an awesome coat for autumn and winter months. I fell in love with it because of its striking design and colouring. I think the three-colour design is really cool and definitely stands out from the crowd. There are other versions and colours of this jacket but I think that the combination of golden shoulders, ochre lower and blue arms is the best as it has a sort of retro vibe to it.…

  Give your car a check up You want to walk around your car or van and give it a really good once over. Then move to the windscreen and look at the wiper blades. You must replace any worn out blades.

One of my favourite autumn pieces for the wardrobe has got to be my brand new Nuna Vest by Sprayway. The Sprayway brand is superb, offering affordable, great quality, outdoor clothing. The vest really does look great for any occasion, be that walking through town or hiking across the moors. It is comfy to wear and the design in particular helps this stand out against other jackets I own. The best part about the vest is the feel of it.…

The weather has been absolutely awful recently so it’s the perfect time to get a new jacket for the winter season. We do a lot of outdoor activities, regardless of the weather so I needed something to suit this lifestyle. I had been doing a fair bit of research to find THE one and came across the Quechua Forclaz 400 Women’s Waterproof Hiking Rain Jacket. If you are unaware of Quechua, they are a Decathlon brand. We own quite a…

As a Cornishman, I thoroughly recommended the Cornish Coastpath trail in the infographic below! There’s the trail from Perranuthnoe to Porthleven, but from my experience of hiking around, you can make your route even better by extending it from Perranuthnoe. Later on, I’ll let you in on some personal preferences, when you head down towards Sennen or even Landsend. Although, as a general note, Cornish coastal paths are pretty muddy during the winter months, so be sure to be equipped…

I’ve been on the lookout for some new headphones and I have finally found the perfect ones. The Skullcandy Grind Wireless on-ear bluetooth headphones from The Board Basement really are awesome. Bluetooth headphones have been around for a while and have always been a great idea but now with most of the latest smartphones ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack all together, they’re becoming a necessity. So what do I really like about the Skullcandy Grind Headphones? Firstly, they sit very…

Over the half term holiday, we decided to make the most of our time and go for a mini-break in Hampshire. We found a fantastic, adult-only campsite called Two Hoots which provides award-winning, glamping holidays. Situated in a fantastic location, close to Winchester, the New Forest and Portsmouth, it really was an awesome base to explore the surrounding area. On arrival, we were greeted by one of the owners, who met us in the parking area and gave us a…

Over a year ago, I got my first pair of Teva boots (which you can read about here) and absolutely loved them. They’re one of my most warn pair of shoes, this is because of how amazingly light and comfortable they are and because of their high quality design and manufacturing. A year later and after lots of wear, they still look close to new and I’m still wearing them all the time. Now I’m a fully fledged fan of…
