Seasonal Stripes With Burton Menswear|OOTD

Stripes with Burton Menswear

It doesn’t matter the season when you’re wearing stripes. Whatever the weather, wherever your location Burton Menswear will have you covered.

I was never the biggest fan of a striped or patterned shirt a year ago… I always thought they were a bit too much, too busy, to much colour, but you know what… that was last year! Now i’m obsessed and have a wardrobe that resembles a painter’s palette.

So, whats better than a Dakota Deluxe in Leeds right now..? How about a brand new Dakota In Manchester? That’s what!

( You win with this one Dakota Manchester).

Blue Sakura|All You Can Eat Review|Leeds

When I was very kindly asked to come along to try an all you can eat style buffet at Blue Sakura Leeds I was to be honest a little dubious… Why? I just don’t like Sushi. Or so I thought!

Let’s start by saying, Blue Sakura is different. Different in a good way! It’s an all-you-can-eat buffet serving Japanese sushi and options from an asian style grill but the difference is you order everything from an ipad! Apparently this is very popular in Japan but completely new to Leeds! (and me).

Rudding Park Luxury Hotel & Spa|Travel|Harrogate

Ok so let me start of by saying I have been lucky enough to visit a number of spas in the last few years. However, i’ve never experienced anywhere quite like this…

Rudding Park Spa soars high above all expectations, so much so that even the 5 star reviews I was reading through before I arrived (I have a habit of doing that) didn’t actually do it justice. This place is a pure delight. In short, it’s gorgeous, the staff are world-class, it’s ridiculously clean and the facilities they have are the best I’ve ever , EVER, experienced!

National Railway Museum|Wang Fuchun – The Invisible Photographer Exhibition|York

National Railway Museum - Wang Fuchun - York - Tom Sheard

Early last week I was invited to something pretty special. This wasn’t the usual kind of event that I am usually asked to attend so I jumped at the chance. This one was different, hosted in one of the most beautiful locations – The National Railway Museum in York which is completely unique and unlike anywhere you will ever see.

Wang Fuchun - York National Railyway Museum.
Wang Fuchun – York National Railway Museum.

This reason this event was hosted here was because there was a true enigma in town. A man who is a masterpiece within his own field. A brave man who has travelled on trains in China as “The Secret Photographer” for over 40 years. Wang Fuchun had arrived in the UK for the second time to open the Railway Museum’s newest exhibition – One Billion Journeys…

“It’s Easy Being A Social Media Influencer”|My Story, Told Honestly|Leeds

Tom Sheard - Social Media Influencer. Instagram

“It’s easy being a Social Influencer”, ” I could do that”, “Anybody can just take a picture and upload it to instagram”, “Influencers are just freeloaders!”.

Ok, so some of that it true. Yes, you could do it yourself and yes anybody can take a photo and upload it to Instagram. The thing is, that isn’t the point, and it’s not why i’m writing this either. Time and time again I am hearing the same things from people who just don’t understand what it takes to create worthwhile content and the commitment that is needed to become a successful influencer. This isn’t really a how to guide, but it’s something I’d like to discuss honestly delving into some of what goes on behind the camera.
