indexHey Guys!

I am so sorry I have been MIA… however my life has taken over … SUCKY! I do hope to get back into the spirit of writing as I was loving it.

But just a little update I am currently in Chicago and LOVING it… I mean who doesn’t love Chicago???

So as I am in Chicago I thought I would let you into my TOP 5 things to do while your in the windy city.



The famous Billy Goat Tarvern is DEFINITELY a place you have to go. Established in 1934 this place has seen it all. So take it from me YOU GOTTA EAT HERE… oh and order a double double.


Cloud Gate or as I (and many many others) like to call it ‘The Bean’. Is just a really cool sculpture by Anish Kapoor’s located in Millennium park. Great place to take some ‘selfies’.


It’s hot, it’s summer, you want a beer or a margarita? Head to Navy Pier located right on the water (obviously) this place has some serious people watching and guess what! You can walk around with a drink… epic!


You can’t go to the city and not see the city from the sky. The 360 views at the John Hancock building are unreal… and if you dare try the TILT. Which is basically a glass window which you stand in and it TILT’s to scare the crap out of you. AWESOME.


Or MAG MILE as ‘us’ Chicagoan’s say, is the PERFECT place to get your shop on… stuffed with high street names such as TopShop and High ends names such as Burberry… this mile of shopping has something for everyone!


Hopefully you are heading to Chicago at some point and if not… set a date! You will love it.

Father’s Day


So for most of you you know that Father’s Day is this Sunday June 15th, for others this is a massive reminder!

But if you are like me, then you haven’t got your gift yet. I thought I would help out… here is a last minute DIY gift ideas for you!

1. Photo Album


You can now get images printed really quickly… in fact on the Walmart website you can upload your images on line and pick them up in an hour… then all you need is an album and a little bit of time.

2. BBQ


Research some BBQ sauce recipes and make some up, put in a cute mason jar and their ready for your dad to get his grill on.

3. Beer Cake


If your of legal age, then you can grab this one for your Dad. Instead of giving him a 12 pack make it a decorative 12 pack.

4. Gift Box


Make your Dad a gift box of all his fav things!… e.g cheese box, blu ray box, bbq box, aftershave box.

5. Key hook


I am sure you have wine corks lying around, turn those corks into something decorative for Dad… simply glue the corks together then screw in some hooks… finished!


I do hope these 5 last minute DIY Father’s Day gifts have at least helped inspire you. A personal touch is really the best gift.

Happy Father’s Day!

Oh Lay Oh Lay Oh Lay

Oh Lay Oh Lay Oh Lay

The day has finally come… after 4 very very very long years, this glorious day has come upon us. Where the world stops what they are doing and are glued to the TV, where friendships and loyalty are tested, where the booze runs freely… of course it is WORLD CUP 2014.

As I am too busy watching the glorious game of FOOTBALL (not soccer), I am leaving you with some glorious images (above), of model Lys Inger shot by Igor Oussenko for Stolnick June 2014.

So grab a beer… turn on the TV… and get chanting!
