I’m not going to lie, I’d never heard of Qwertee before Christmas. My brother came down for the festive period and had a really cool selection of tees, which spanned funny, cult, obscure, geek, film, TV and games. I was intrigued as to where he had got these T shirts as I hadn’t seen the designs before, they clearly weren’t the ones you get in HMV that you see loads of other people with. That’s when he told me…

  When I spotted Sublow on twitter I knew they were a brand I could connect with. Sublow was founded by Rich and Didi, who both met at Falmouth Uni and after finishing have stuck around to enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer. They share a love of music, skating and free-living which is represented in their stylish designs. There are three big things I like the most about Sublow: Number One The design and styling of Sublow clothing…

  My brother bought me some awesome Christmas presents this year, one that I was especially stoked to get was some shaving cream, post shave balm and a shaving brush. Normally shaving products are a bit of a cop out gift, but these were all from one of the coolest men’s grooming brands – Bluebeards Revenge. Bluebeards Revenge are a grooming brand dedicated to men. You won’t find them selling ladies cosmetics that have just had the fragrance changed in…

  Just like a cheesecake, the best part of a skateboard is the underside. I love skate deck art, it’s just a massive shame you hardly ever get to see it. After you’ve bought the deck, when do you really get a good look at it? To add insult to injury the artwork then gets scuffed, scratched and eventually is no more. I’ve managed to find some socks that solve this problem, they are made by Stance Socks and I…

  Today I want to take this opportunity to debunk a cliche. You always here people talk about the unwanted Christmas present. There are loads of familiar items: Cosmetics Christmas jumpers Novelty gifts & Puzzles Socks I’m sure there are plenty of people who have received these items and not wanted them. However, that doesn’t mean that they are always poor presents. I’ve been thinking and have worked out why those presents are sometimes unwanted. The big reason why anyone…

  Last week my girlfriend and I made a little shopping trip up to the big smoke. We had a great time and saw lots of the sights and sounds of London. The excuse for the whole trip was Christmas shopping but realistically we knew we probably wouldn’t buy anything. However we thought it would at least fast track us into the Christmas spirit. We decided to take the tube to Knightsbridge (to visit Harrods) then get the tube again…

  I’ve been in need of a pair new practical boots for walking, they needed to be comfortable, waterproof and breathable. After lots of searching I came across the Sierra Duck Waterproof Boot from Hi-Tec. Although I’ve never owned a pair of Hi-Tec shoes before, I decided to try them as I had heard good things, they hit all the marks and looked perfect. Soon after ordering, the postman brought me my new footwear. Upon opening the box I was…

  Have you heard of the City of Lights? Basically every year in Truro, at the start of the Christmas season and the week before late night shopping starts, there is a parade through Cornwall’s great city. Children from Schools and other organisations make massive lanterns in all shapes and sizes and parade them through the city accompanied by marching bands of different styles. This year there was a great selection of giant lanterns, some of which were even articulated…

  This week has brought two big signs of the cold: Number one – I lit the first fire of the season in my house. Number two – I scraped ice from my vans windshield for the first time this winter. I have been wishing I was an Arctic Fox. Bit random I know but let me explain: When winter time is coming the Arctic Fox adapts, it changes from a chocolaty brown to a snow white colour. Not only…
