I wanted to save this post for a Friday, instead of my usual posting day of Wednesday, because I figured this information might be more useful before a weekend considering the lives most of my readers will lead.

So you’ve had a bit of a long night. The drink has been steadily flowing, you’ve had a lot of fun and you’re heading home after a great night out. You suddenly remember that you have an event to go to tomorrow and, feeling your inebriation slip into hangover,  you realise you can’t afford to be feeling rough. Whether you need to look presentable or just can’t afford to look like you’ve recently been dragged through the set of The Walking Dead, this guide will help you take some pre-emptive actions to reduce the impact of your hangover and keep you looking as fresh as possible for the next day.

I realise I didn’t manage to get a post up last week, largely due to a few personal obligations that got in the way, and I felt bad for leaving you all a little high and dry. However, as an apology I’m doing a giveaway of some of my favourite products from brands I’ve recently reviewed. This selection of items should keep you looking sharp throughout the Summer/Autumn transition and well into Winter and have a total value of over £50!

You can find details on the individual products below and to win all you need to do is go follow me and like this post on Instagram or follow and RT the pinned post on Twitter. Best of luck to you all, the winner will be announced next Wednesday at 9am! View Post

I included this video as it is one of my favourite examples of creative thinking. Somewhere, someone decided to ignore the data and figures, choosing to create something with heart that has lasted for decades… 

I’m a firm believer in creativity and the importance it plays in society. It has helped us connect with people across oceans, create great works of art, take steps closer towards human equality (something we are still incredibly far away from) and help great individuals make a larger impact on the world. However, it is not always an accepted or highly valued skill, one that is often swept under the rug during the scrutiny of people’s achievements to help quantify their success. Today, I wanted to discuss what it means to me as well as some of the everyday challenges of creativity. View Post

Watch Style: Drive Time

The in-house watch style enthusiast, The Man About Time, has another great passion in his life. Namely, his love of classic cars and sports cars, with Aston Martin and Porsche making up some of his favourite manufacturers. This week he combines both of these loves to discuss some timeless watches for when you’re at the wheel.

With ‘summer’ (floods are now a feature) established and the motor sport season well under way, here at TMS we thought it timely (pun entirely intended) to take a look at some watches which were designed with car enthusiasts in mind. As usual we will stick to highlighting a few which complement the style of those who appreciate the sculpted curves or brutal power of fine automobiles. The challenge is to find a watch which subtly conveys your enthusiasm whilst still providing an air of style and quality, and then to buy it at the right price. In previous articles we have mentioned the Omega Speedmaster which, although best known for its extra- planetary associations, has an honourable motoring tradition. TAG also have an obvious strong connection with cars and we have already reviewed the Monaco and its link to Steve McQueen, who was driving a Porsche 917 in the film Le Mans, which brought us neatly to our review of Christopher Ward’s stunning limited edition GT40 Power Reserve. I don’t know if any of you bought one after the reading the article but all 40 were sold very rapidly indeed. View Post

Men's Grooming: Wilkinson Sword Review 1

For those who follow me on Twitter, you know I draw issue with the some of the larger brands who produce razors. As a result, I tend to stay away from them, favoring smaller brands who offer value for money and reliable quality in their products. Recently, I was sent Wilkinson Sword’s new Hydro 5 razor to trial and review and, with a fair amount of skepticism, I accepted. Over the past 2 weeks I’ve been trialing the razor (some of you may have seen it in my Instagram story last week), researching the costs of new blades and evaluating the benefits of the newly added features.

You can find a full review of my thoughts, based on the usual criteria, below… View Post
