Tips for Tee-Pump!

Yes spring! Yes sunshine! Yes summer wardrobe! I know, it happened sooner than we all thought, right? All of us being caught out by our mini April heat wave in the UK. I was literally just in my Siberian furs during the snowy ‘Beast of East’ while wondering if I will ever see a blue sky or feel warmth ever again. And I feel unprepared for the sunnier weather as I am NOT ready to take my top off for the summer. So my summer goal is to simply look amazing in a tee. I want my arms on point,…

Spoiler Free Things I learnt from the Avengers: Infinity War London Fan Event.

Directors the Russo Brothers have kept a small crowd of fans wanting MORE after assembling a selection of Avengers and showing 20 whole minutes of Avengers: Infinity War last night at the new and revamped Television Centre – and the reaction was electric. The cast gathered was just a handful of the enormous ensemble: Paul Bettany (The Vision), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Sebastian Stan (Winter Solider), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Letitia Wright (Shuri) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange).

Queer Eye: A love letter. “Can you believe?!”

Season 2 of Netflix’s Queer Eye has been announced and I am FREAKING out! Keeping up with the latest TV can be a job in itself these days, making sure one gets one’s full diet of Jessica Jones, Last Week Tonight, Stranger Things, The Young Offenders, Westworld, The Good Place… it’s tiring! I’m kinda hoping I break my leg (just a little bit) so I can clear the backlog (and give me a chance to re-visit old favourites like STAR TREK). I guess what I’m saying is that with streaming, it’s hard to find that next hit show to watch. I know that I have spent…

12 weeks to be a strong man?

Strength building workouts that make you slim down without cardio? Okay, sold. Fitness magazines and social media accounts are telling us how we can all get “PECS LIKE THESE NOW” and how to “TRIM DOWN FOR SUMMER IN 12 WEEKS” while posting inspiring pictures people like actors who are paid to get in shape for a role, or juicy fitness models who have seemingly unrealistic results for an everyday Joe.  The last few issues of a certain gents’ fitness magazine I’ve seen in my local Tesco Metro have had the words “GET BIG ARMS NOW” on the cover for the…

Black Panther (spoiler free) review: The King is in.

“So this is a sequel to Pink Panther, right?” said my soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend, trying to be funny. I sighed. For those of you after the further adventures of Inspector Clouseau, you may be a bit disappointed here. But for fans of great superhero action films – and easy routes into the sprawling Marvel Cinematic Universe – then Black Panther is your boy. I’ll admit upfront that I’ve not read many Black Panther comics, but as usual with Marvel movies, that’s not an issue. Like with Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel have taken a lesser-known comic and created a hugely…
