I’ve had a mad couple of weeks at work, which has resulted in not a lot of blogging and not a lot of fun. It’s been worth it though as I’ve managed to secure a better position and have got through it all now. To celebrate the frantic fortnight being over, I bought myself a new watch and my girlfriend and I popped into Truro for lunch. The watch I bought was this new Swatch watch called Black Ghost…

  A couple weeks ago my girlfriend and I went on a lush little wander down to a very cool and lesser known Cornish beach. It’s off the beaten track and is one of my favourite beaches, especially in summer as it’s not known by tourists and locals alike. There is no car park, you simply park up on a country road and walk down what looks like someones drive until you see a small woodland path. From the top…

  I’ve just been packing for a couple nights away and thought I’d pop on here and write a quick post (mainly to brag) about my new Fjall Raven duffel bag. It’s made from their waxed fabric, called G-1000, which is mega strong and will definitely last me years. It’s straps are made from a really high quality and natural coloured leather. The way their made means you can carry it in your hand, over your shoulder or like a…

  This week I’ve been indulging in the most primitive of coastal pastimes, skimming stones. It’s one of those brilliant activities that everyone and their dad is a professional at. My girlfriend and I went down to a beach on the south coast when the sea was mighty flat and practiced our skills. Everybody has an opinion on the two main skimming elements: Stone choice and throwing technique. I’m definitely of the “get low to the ground and chuck it…

  In Greek Mythology, Poseidon is one of the twelve Olympian Gods (and little brother to Zeus). He is ruler of the ocean and is called the “God of the Sea”. Poseidon is usually depicted as an old, angry man with curly hair, a beard, carrying a mega pointy trident. I’ve always thought that Poseidon has a bit of an image problem. The most recent time he updated his wardrobe was a couple of thousand years BC! Looking all grumpy…

  As you might have read in one of my posts last week, I’ve been thinking about being a bit more healthy. I thought one easy way of upping my fitness was getting back into running. One of the things that used to stop me from running was my lack of the proper gear. Like anything, running without the right kit isn’t anywhere near as enjoyable as when you have the proper equipment. The less fun something is, the more…

  The 6 Nations have been making my weekends recently and as you can see from the highlights below the England vs Ireland game on Saturday wasn’t an exception… When it comes to watching the rugby with friends down the pub, normally clothing choices are pretty straightforward and a white shirt with a red rose on it usually does the trick. Sometimes however it’s nice to mix it up and that’s where Raging Bull clothing comes in. Raging Bull was…

  The weather has been mighty cold the last couple of months and I’ve been making the most of it by capturing the freezing mornings with my camera. It’s been so chilly in fact that down by a local river, icicles have been forming from splashes the water makes on it’s way down the valley and out to sea. I enjoy a brisk morning as much as the next man but after a while crouched on the cold ground, trying…

  Cornish people are obsessed with the weather, I think it’s because the weather varies so much down here. It goes from super hot, pretty much tropical summers to torrential rain and stormy winters. For January and February unfortunately it’s only been the latter. Inspired by the constant discussion about the weather I decided to purchase this awesome T shirt from 8 Ball.   If for some reason you’ve managed to miss the near constant stormy weather, I’ve been kind…
