Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Not Another Bill x Il Bussetto – Italian Day

posted by on 08/04/2015

Despite having a high ranking spot on my bucket list, I have yet to commit to the gastronomic pilgrimage required for every self-proclaimed foodie however we were fortunate enough to experience a taste of Italy (literally) all without leaving London to celebrate the recent collaboration between Not Another Bill & Italian atelier II Bussetto. We discover how to enjoy an espresso, critique a classic wine and devour pizza like a true Sicilian after the cut.

Ruffians Barbers – Covent Garden

posted by on 10/02/2015

Hair is something a man needs to take care of, and London is no stranger to barbers that understand this. When the £5-10 haircuts from your local bloke aren’t doing the job, there’s plenty of options to get a better experience and get your hair cut by someone who takes their time. With that in mind, I jumped at the opportunity when we recently got invited to get a cut at Ruffians barbers courtesy of their collaboration with Jura whisky for Burns Night weekend. I sipped some fantastic whisky and got myself a tidy up. Read on to see my thoughts on one of the best new(ish) barber shops around town.

French Grill at JW Marriot, Hanoi

posted by on 12/10/2014

Travelling to Asia, I knew I’d be eating some great food. This part of the world is known for its street food, which so far on my journey I’ve seen everywhere and eaten plenty. In London, humble street food comes with a hefty price and is often served to city folk and hipsters eager to eat some newly arrived cuisine before everyone else. French Grill is a big step away from the wonderful traditions of street food, as Chef de Cuisine, Raphael Szurek, begins a haute cuisine revolution in a quickly developing part of Hanoi.

The Westin Hotel – Singapore #AaronDoesAsia

posted by on 02/10/2014

When I arrived in Singapore I was feeling little down, I’d left all the friends I had made in Vietnam (you’ll get to hear about my adventures there soon) as they travelled to Cambodia and I went in the opposite direction, I strongly considered changing my plans, getting out and heading their way. This wasn’t helped by the hostel I was staying in, while it was of a far nicer standard than many I’d stayed at in Vietnam, each bunk had it’s own private television, blind and even Beats headphones, it lacked character and characters. There was no natural light in the dorm and no interaction between guests, it was depressing. I really didn’t expect my stay at The Westin to change my mood so positively.

Where did the LoveBox go?

posted by on 22/07/2014

This weekend LoveBox hit Victoria Park, London. With Nas performing Illmatic, Soul II Soul and EZ on the bill I thanked my lucky stars when I ended up with a very last minute ticket. I could hardly think of a more perfect way to spend a scorching (and stormy) weekend in London. But when I got there, something just didn’t feel right. The LoveBox I’d come to know and love had been replaced…

Salaam Namaste | Restaurant Review

posted by on 02/01/2014

A new year requires new places to experience, a few weeks ago Daniel and I picked up our knife and fork once again in order to taste the offerings of Salaam Namaste in London’s Bloomsbury. A short walk from Russell Square station, a visit allows you to avoid the hectic crowds present in London’s most populated areas while still staying close enough to the action of central London. With the restaurant winning ’Best South Asian Restaurant’ at the Asian Curry Awards and Head Chef Sabbir Karim also holding awards, our expectations were high. Check out our full review and find out what we thought.

Wellness with Technogym

posted by on 16/12/2013

Last month I visited an office utopia. Perched happily on exercise balls, the staff cooked up innovation for hours in their eco-friendly office spaces, basked in natural light. They broke from their creating for a one-hour workout in their lux, on-site gym before eating ridiculously cheap, natural and locally sourced food in their canteen for another hour and ended their break bonding over cappuccino and fuse-ball. Then I woke up flew home. Yes, my friends.  This place exists. This place was the Wellness Village in Cescena, Italy – Technogyms HQ. Read on to find out more.

Nike #FlashRun with Nike+ Running

posted by on 06/12/2013

On Tuesday, I lit up the night with Nike. I was invited to join 50 or so runners – including special guests/Olympians Hannah England and Ross Murray – for a run-adventure through central London in Nike’s new reflective collection, Flash Pack. Meeting at Nike’s Covent Garden store, we were each given a Nike Flash Jacket and a pair of Nike Flash 5.0+ Shield Trainers and split in to teams to find out our special mission. Head under the cut to find out what went down.
